New Orleans Hornets Eric Gordon trade talk reminder of boomerangs
The NBA trading deadline has passed, and anybody who roots for the New Orleans Horlicans should be disappointed. Certainly not for the same reason other teams were active, to pick up a player who can make a positive difference down the stretch. No, Horlican fans should be upset because the team did not get rid of a dead weight who is making a difference on the negative side.
Guard Eric Gordon, he of the mysterious and eternal knee injury, was the subject of late rumors in which he was being shopped for players or draft choices. The fact that Gordon was not dealt is not a surprise. He missed most of the 2011-12 season with a knee injury and has only appeared in 19 games during the current campaign.
