  • shawnkemp4prez

    For some reason, Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers just don’t seem like they’ll mesh well…

    2 shoot-first shooting guards? NO is gonna find out that Gordon is MUCH better and Rivers will start to see very little PT.

    This was dumb, I know they want to make Rivers into a PG, they’re trying to do that but it’s not going to work.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Yeah, probably not.

  • RunNGun

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    I do think New Prleans going to shop Gordon as soon as he is eligible and/or expresses displeasure

    He doesnt want to be there, everyone knows it, they trying to trade him for assets. Hornets are scheming

  • Jer dawG

    I wonder why Indiana didn’t even offer him a contract? I guess they know something else we don’t. Hometown team rumored to want him didn’t step up one iota. They must think he will play 20 games next season or something.

  • MeloMan15

    LOL… caboose, that trade offer was horrible for the raptors

  • elmaar

    jer dawg…pacers are smart enough to know paul george is a safer if not better investment than eric gordon
    and these contracts(gordon,mayo) are straight killers for OKC
    now how much do you think james harden is gonna command next summer?

  • http://slamonline.com Datkid

    Eric Gordon is gonna look stupid for not wanting to play on anthony davis’s team smh.. and they should trade austin rivers, they need a real PG

  • Snapback4Me
