Eric Gordon is not winning any fans right now. The New Orleans Hornets guard is currently out with a mystery knee injury. The doctors say he is fine, but Gordon says he is in tremendous pain. In fact, Gordon said that he might not make it back this season.
Gordon said its very painful. He said he doesnt know “at all” when or if he’ll be be back this season.

I am going to go ahead and call BS on this Gordon injury. It is clear that he does not want to be a member of the Hornets. He wanted to leave during free agency but the team decided to match his offer. This smells like a way for him to try to weasel his way out of town. For the life of me, I can not figure out why.
The Hornets are going to be one of the up and coming teams. I mean, who would not want to play with a guy like Anthony Davis? The kid has a ton of talent and he would make things really easy for a perimeter guy like Gordon. However, he wants to whine and moan his way to a new team.
Gordon has a ton of talent, but I saw the best comparison for him on Twitter. He is really on his way to being the next Vince Carter. A guy with all the talent in the world, but he simply does not want it. Just a sad case overall.
