While New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon showed his charitable side Thursday at Langston Hughes Academy Charter School, he made it clear he's looking forward to the 2012 basketball season.
As to how he'll be received among the Hornets' fan base this season, Gordon appeared confident that there won't be bumps in the road. The Hornets matched the Phoenix Suns' four-year, $58 million offer to him this summer that kept Gordon in the Crescent City.
"I'm not nervous at all," Gordon said. "I'm here to help these fans, help this organization win games ... I'm happy here, and I'm just looking forward to the season."
He said the No. 1 point he's emphasizing is being a leader on the team. He's back after playing only nine games last season because of a bruised right knee that required surgery.
