Simple - Draft his Indiana boy Cody Zeller in the 2013 draft and all talk of him leaving will be moot. EJ is about all things IU... heck I bet if Isiah Thomas was our GM, as bad as he is, you'd hear nothing of the Gordon talk.
PG - Gravy, Roberts
SG - EJ, Rivers
SF - Anderson, Aminu, Miller
PF - Davis, Smith, Thomas
C - Zeller, Lopez
I love the Hornets, but now am all on board with the PELS.... Geaux Pelicans!
Gordon will be pretty down when we suck for Shabazz then.
Here is a better way to make him happy: just make sure his checks clear.
How to make EJ happy?
- Play better then Suns,
- play better then Pacers,
- limit Rivers minutes to 15~,
- A.D. have to win Rookie Of The Year,
- improve 3PT defence,
- get SF.
Eric Gordon has played only ten games for the Hornets and some how the hornets has to make him happy? what a crazy world we live in
I would take Cody Zeller or Victory Oladipo out of IU. Zeller is a fantastic scorer and could be a great 3rd big man. Oladipo is a great athlete who can score in a lot of ways and defend multiple positions. I think either of these players could help us out immediately as bench players. Zeller requires no less than a top-5 pick, while Oladipo is a mid to late lottery guy, making him a more likely option if we improve with Gordon as we hope.
Here's a highlight video:
How about cheering for him once he makes it on the court tonight.
I guess I'm the only pro-Luol Deng type around here. Must be cuz I'm not afraid of his contract.
Now I provide life insurance benefits.
I want Deng on this team. We need him!
People's Basketball Sim League presents...
C Kevin Willis | PF Brian Grant | SF Jalen Rose | SG Michael Finley | PG Terrell Brandon
Key Reserves: Dikembe Mutombo | Todd Day
Name all the skills you want in a SF and Deng checks out.
Good size and length? He's 6'8.5" and 220lbs with a 7' wingspan.
Offense? Double check.
Only "negatives" is that he's 27 going on 28. And carries a $12 mil salary number for the next two seasons. If it was 2014, he'd be a valuable expiring.
I'm gonna need someone to talk me down from him more, cuz I'm not at all convinced why it's not a good idea. Is he not as on the table as previously thought?
