    Maybe Rockets saw what the Knicks were doing and got jealous.
    Who can assemple the most injury prone team in the league first?

    Yep. That's the question.

    If right, there's magic in this backcourt.

    Alas, history suggests otherwise.

    And how much?

    Actually probably what the Lakers did.

    They gave 40 mil to two mediocre players.

    This is what happens when a desperate franchise has been turned down and

    needs to save face. They have to overpay for a mediocre talent so the situation doesn't look that bad.

    Could we at least pretend to have a defense?

    Bad defender and injury prone.

    What the **** man, no. We don't need to take on all of New Orleans problems. These dudes couldnt stay on the court because of injury over there, why would it change over here?

    Harden/Brewer/Anderson/Dmo/Gordon/MDA defense would make me cry.

    Yao Ming of SGs. Injury prone player.

    Only started 65+ games once in his career. Played(not started) in 70+ games once in his career. If you get 50 games out of him, consider yourself lucky.

    Games-Games Started
    78-65
    62-60
    56-56
    9-9
    42-40
    64-64
    61-60
    45-44

    I feel the same way about Gordon that I do about Anderson. These are players you add to a team with solid-to-great starters at every position. These are not guys who will actually win you games - they just provide enough offense to keep you from losing leads.

    The front office has lost their ****ing mind.

    38-42 3 point shooter though.

    If you play smallish with Beverley / Harden / Gordon / Anderson that is a very good shooting squad.

    Didn't know Gordon, in all honesty, was a terrible defender. Maybe our trainer Keith Jones can keep them healthy like Dwight this past season and Beverley.

    Driving around New Orleans, you probably should know how to shoot.

    If Keith Jones is the key to our season, then put me out of my misery now.

    i will say this:

    Gordon
    Harden
    Anderson
    Beasley
    DMo

    can all score. Remember in 14/15 when DMo was the only other offensive player we could count on besides James Harden? DMo is 5th on that list.
