    Disgraceful that they didn't retire Delfino's number after he dunked on Durant

    Well ... looks like FAs like D'Antoni, afterall. Offensive players who are trying to find a new start.

    I like his game, but we can't trust him to remain fit. That is why I voted no.

    D'Antoni with Gordon, Harden, and Anderson. The Rockets have given up on playing any semblance of defense.

    Gordon's salary somewhat gives us an idea of DMo's. While DMo is a Big, and bigs make more, Gordon is more proven...so they might offset.

    You know what's funny. The pelicans gave the exact same contract they could have gave to gordon that they gave to Solomon Hill.

    You start with something he's never been able to do and then build from there. Like building a skyscraper on quicksand.

    damnit. Woke up to crap news. Gordon here Horford Celtics. :rolleyes:

    Is the contract fully guaranteed? There's a reason he got only 13 per and that's it because he will be injured for most of the time. So NO I dont like it.

    I don't like it.



















    I ****ing love it! Has handles, can create his own shot, light it up and he's only 27. Sure he's had injuries in the past but this is a killer move trust me.

    Anderson might be the worst defensive PF in the league.

    You're talking about a terrible defensive team picking up MDA as a coach, losing Howard, and replacing him with the worst defensive big man you could get on the market.

    Gordon isn't a defensive gem either and ranks at best as mediocre. So you are starting a team with 3 weak points on D, weak rebounding, and an aging Ariza. So you better hope Capela turns into a beast.

    We are going to be like one of those one-sided NFL teams - except I am skeptical our offense will be up there with a GS or OKC.
