Its not like he's saying anything horrible, but he's still not helping his image with Hornets fans

FWIW (could be nothing), at the open practice before the regular season Gordon joined the bench after the scrimmage started and put one of these on:



Which is coincidentally called a "jumpers knee strap."

He's not hurting it, either. The people that think he's faking, are going to continue thinking that he's faking. The people that think he is genuinely hurt are going to continue thinking that he's genuinely hurt. Finally, I'm going to continue not giving a frick and enjoying the games.

you're online diagnosing Eric Gordon over the internet


Others did the diagnosis, I just did a little googling on the condition and saw how closely it seemed to match.

You want to find something.


Yes, I want to find answers. I still think a trade demand is one of the options, it just doesn't fit what we know as well as tendonitis.

quote:

Again I ask, if the Hornets staff screwed this up so badly, then why did the Phoenix staff also give the ok to sign Gordon to a max offer?


That's the wrong way to look at it. There is no structural damage so A) nothing for Phoenix doctors to find and B) it's not a major screw up so much as an unacceptable screw up. If it is Jumper's Knee then they probably wasted about a week of rehab time by not being able to diagnose and treat a common condition in house.

re: Does Gordon have Jumper's Knee?


might he have had jumper's knee for some time now, and possibly something else happened to the knee?

just playing devil's advocate. not sure if jumper's knee is a side effect of some other problem or perhaps could lead to further complications.

No he's not, but he could really use some good PR to help him with the people that think he's faking

Whether it is or isn't, if this is a legit injury why isn't Hornets FO and PR doing a better job of protecting one of its stars? I agree with what you said earlier, I think he has anxiety issues and this information vacuum isn't helping anyone.

You googled jumper's knee.

They're medical doctor's and have seen him in person. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Bottom line is we signed an injure-prone player. Now he's injured. There's no shock here. No conspiracy or massive failure on the Hornets part.

Philly's in an identical situation with Bynum right now. As long as his knee stays attached to his leg, id bet my house that he gets a max offer from them in the offseason.

This. The team without him is already exciting. So, if he comes back, I'll be happy and if he doesn't I'll still be happy. But, I can't dwell on Eric Gordon anymore, shit's just not worth it.

i was the one who said he probably has this, and it actually hurts pretty bad. However, he should be able to play on it.
