This idea is grotesque. If you could get Gordon to say "I did it for Jesus", you'd have Mike Redd's ghost, and I cannot stomach that whatsoever. I'd rather call OKC and get Lamb and Perkins bad contract. You save a lot of cash, a lot of entitled attitude and a lot of heartbreak when the guy is in pout-mode or injury mode. Gordon as face of the franchise? I'm done with this team if they do this.

I didn't know Eric Gordon was that good, we'll throw in Lamb as well.


LOL, it's not that. It's just that writer "thinks" we should trade for Gordon, not that he has any news that we're actively pursuing him. Just like I THINK we should go after LeBron and Durant, too.


Ok sorry :oops:

Why do sports writers think anyone wants to sign Ellis, much less for $11 mil?

do we still have the option to just give josh smith all that money and keep our young guys too? seems funny giving up better assets for the max guy with the lesser impact..... whose basically been out of play the last couple years with injury issues. whats the upside? let me guess.... is it ts%? do i win a prize?

Youth, talent, efficiency, and the fact he's not a rental. It's hilarious that you'd rather go after Josh Smith on a 30 game rental than a player like Gordon.

I remember when people were saying we shouldn't go after Stephen Curry for the exact same reasons we shouldn't now go after Gordon. That worked out well. Oh wait.... :lol:

Something about having it all or something.

He does have some value I guess. If your main goal isn't winning.

Gordon has all star potential and it's pretty well known that a ton of people around the league believe that. Mike Redd was an all star as well but we just did a terrible job building around him before injuries ruined his career. No way is Gordon that high injury risk yet so comparing him to Redd is unfair.

And if u took away Monta Ellis from this team and added Prime all star 22ppg Michael Redd, this team is top 4 team in a weak Eastern conference. If Gordon can enjoy his stay in Milwaukee and be an efficient 20ppg scorer like most think he's capable of, we have a competent, well balanced top 4 eastern conference caliber team all because of 1 players potential. Id say ur remarks about disgust and being done with the team is total overkill.

Btw, Larry Sanders is the face of the franchise by beginning of next season. This is his team now. Gordon is a pure scorer u build ur back court around. Larry is a defensive machine u build ur team around. Big difference.

stop saying im advocating a josh smith rental. . ive never suggested that idiocy. i am all for locking him up if he were to agree to our 5 year max offer before a deal is made.

is gordons knee checked out id at least consider him... id probably offer less money to kevin martin and see if he were willing to take it first. neither guy has the impact or gives us the safety net smith would give us tho.

Kevin Martin? LOL.

And Smith can't extend until the summer. No chance I'm giving up any type of legitimate assets to take a slim chance that Smith wants to play in Milwaukee.

You want to give Josh **** Smith 5 years, 90 million? Holy ****. That max is way more cap killing then Gordon's 4/60.

Weezy.....Mike Redd was a colossal waste of money, not to mention the unspeakable moves they made to clear the decks for him when it was decided he was going to be our centerpiece. Gordon will not be happy in Milwaukee, and the fans will not be happy with him because it would be almost impossible for him to play up to that contract. He is also an injury risk. I agree that we need a 2 of the future. I just prefer someone like Lamb from OKC as he's cheaper with a high ceiling - even figuring that you'd have to take back Perkins' bad contract. I continue to think that PHX is a great trade partner for an Ellis deal in combination to end up with Dragic and Gortat.

I think we're a more realistic chance in getting Gordon than Lamb. And Lamb hasn't proven anything yet. Kohl would have no idea who he is.

Very good call Luke on the Steph Curry reference. This is easily an almost identical situation. Eric Gordon hasn't even came close to peaking yet and he's easily considered a potential all star talent wise. Sure there are injury concerns but u can't be rewarded without taking risk and that's just a fact of life.

Gordon not being able to play a full season since his rookie year is definitely cause for concern. There's a big risk involved in trading for him since he's making big money and misses a lot of games, but he's a young talented player that I wouldn't pass up on.

I think he's just saying NO seems more motivated to trade Gordon. Can't get someone in a trade if his team doesn't care to trade him. Nothing to do with Lamb's desires. He's a kid. He'd probably be thrilled to go anywhere he could get on the court.

Players that go from one team to another via trade are allowed a one week window to strike a deal with the team. Yes the 100% conformation cannot be signed until summer, but the team and player are allowed to sign the dotted line and send it to the league confirming the agreement.

Somehow I missed this post earlier. That is crazy. However, George W Bush is clearly a much more talented painter than any of Romneys ancestors IMO...

Gordon is one of the few players who can control their future this season as he has the ability to veto all trades until July 14. The collective bargaining agreement gives Gordon this power since the New Orleans Hornets matched the $58.36 million offer sheet he signed with the Phoenix Suns.
