Pretty sure this is the first time I've seen the Hornets in the Reveille



Hornets guard Gordon’s injury charade is getting old
quote:

Being an oft-injured, overpaid NBA player is the life. Just ask New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon. You don’t have to do much. Ice your knees, ride a bike and collect fat checks. Where do I sign up?

quote:

I said it once in a column during the summer and I’ll say it again — New Orleans made a huge misstep in building a franchise by shelling out $58 million to Gordon over four years. Rule No. 1 of being an NBA general manager: Don’t hand out max-contracts to players coming off serious knee injuries. That’s exactly what Demps did, and now the Hornets are seeing the consequences. Gordon was among the last group of cuts this summer for the United States Olympic Basketball team. It wasn’t because his knee was bothering him — it was because he wasn’t good enough. Suddenly after the Hornets paid the big bucks to keep him in New Orleans, the knee that has caused him to miss so much time in his short NBA career started to act up again. Who would have thought?

quote:

Gordon didn’t participate in training camp, didn’t play in a single game on the Hornets eight-game preseason slate and hasn’t suited up for any of their three regular season contests. But never fear, Hornets fans — Gordon has some good news. He doesn’t need surgery on his knee, but he’ll be out four to six weeks while undergoing “stringent rehabilitation work.” I’m sorry, but hasn’t Gordon spent the last few months doing just that? It’s not like doctors are holding him back. There’s no structural damage and no official diagnosis. Gordon just says his knee is sore.



Seems like he's a week late on this, but whatever. Hopefully the writer, and all of us, are wrong

Is this supposed to be an insult?

"Let's laugh at Gordon because the Olympic team's management said he was definitely a top 20 player in the league but not quite top 15."
