At The Hive on Hornets with Gordon



Similar to Jesters thread, but thought this article would get butied. Has a good break down of Gordon's game so far.

LINK

quote:

In the 11 games Gordon has started, New Orleans has posted a +2.64 efficiency differential. On the season, that would be a contender for a top-10 mark. In their 33 other games without Gordon starting, the Hornets have posted a -6.48 efficiency differential. That's a massive, massive difference that has ultimately been contributed to by a host of other factors, but Gordon's impact on the lineup has been unmistakable.


quote:

If there's one key to contending as a small-market team, it's this: if you can, be a dangerous lottery team. That can happen through a critical injury (the 1997 Spurs), the relatively slow development of superstars (Kevin Durant andRussell Westbrook), even the compilation of an extensive collection of draft assets combined with smart management (the late 2000, star-crossed Blazers).The Hornets remain on course to be one of the most dangerous lottery teams in recent memory. They have the league's active assists leader (post-Rondo injury), the league leader in made three pointers for the last four seasons, one of the top rookie prospects of this decade who's currently posting the 7th >20 PER rookie season in the last twenty years, and Eric Gordon.

Part of being a great GM is luck, but Demps will continue to prove he's one of the best. Benson is the MAN!

Dell Demps is the best GM in the Association.
