A prospect compared to KD. That's sick. Maybe you should go tanking ;)

To tank means losing the intention to get a good draft pick - in this case Warren Macy who is an upcoming star from what I read ;)

Re: (8-7) The Big Easy | Gordon Wants Out Of New Orleans

Postby mrmoves20 on Thu Jan 03, 2013 11:27 am

RUMOR: Gordon wants out of New Orleans


Hornets G Eric Gordon has reportedly asked for a trade. Gordon originally wanted to be with the Suns, but since he's a restricted FA last year, the Hornets matched the Suns' offer that brought him back to New Orleans for 4 years with the 4th being his option to whether opt in or out. Now, he wants out of New Orleans with Indiana a possible destination. Indiana would send G/F Paul George and C Roy Hibbert for Eric Gordon and their '14 1st round pick. It would be a very good trade for both sides, but the Hornets GM says it is unlikely, but it has a slim chance to happen as he wants Gordon and Davis to build around for the future.

"The trade could happen, but its chances of happening very slim. A Dwight three is more likely to happen than this. But I consider this trade, I might execute this trade if he [Gordon] continues to slump for the month," Nambayan said, "As you can see, Davis has to carry the scoring load for the Hornets and he's got no support for it when Gordon can't find the net. Gordon seemed to struggle with his height and good perimeter defenders like Kobe and Tony Allen the last two games. And tomorrow, we're facing the Heat and Wade's guarding him."


The Lakers and Grizzlies game will be recapped tomorrow.

Bad news if he wants out. At least he's contracted though and you can trade him for something nice if you have to. (Y)

Noooo! At first i like to trade gordon until i saw his strength in scoring on a drive :)

In my game i almost accepted a trade for aminu henry and picks for danny granger. Maybe you like this for a story. Granger is from new orleans i think and you can build around a big three for davis EG and granger hehe

I suggest getting a point guard who can create shots and a small forward.

Hornets land 5-time champion D-Fish


Image

The Hornets have claimed NBA vet and 5-time NBA Champion, Derek Fisher off the free agent pool, contract worth 720K for a year. Fisher stated he wanted to help the Hornets build and strengthen its chemistry since it's one of their problems off the court, and the Hornets needed leadership and a decent backup point guard for the inconsistent Jonny Flynn. Also, Fisher announced that he will leave the game of basketball at the end of the season.

"I had a great career, winning championships and all. But this is it for me, after this season, I'm gonna walk away from the game of basketball with my head held up high." Fisher stated, "This is a nice young team and I'm here to teach them and lead them. Nambayan spoke to me earlier and he said there will be a big move he'll do after this and I can't tell you right now."

Re: (9-9) The Big Easy | Fisher to Hornets + Gordon Traded

BREAKING: Eric Gordon traded to Pacers for Granger


Image


The Hornets seemed to have had a change of heart. Just yesterday Gordon asked to be moved away from New Orleans and they insisted they will keep him. But today, just today, the dealt him to Indiana for its franchise centerpiece, Danny Granger. The deal was completely a surprise for the basketball world as the Hornets executed their 2nd trade of the season and it's not even the deadline yet.

The Hornets sent Gordon, Austin Rivers and their 2014 1st round pick and in return, Indiana sends them Danny Granger and Paul George. This seemed to be a fair deal for both sides, especially giving up Rivers who has shown much immaturity because he wanted to play a starter's minutes despite him being a sixth man; Rivers also has proven to be a bust averaging just 4 points and 37% shooting in an average of 20 minutes of play. The trade also upgraded the small forward position for the Hornets, Aminu has been good, but they certainly could use an upgrade.

Hornets receive:
Danny Granger
Paul George

Pacers receive:
Eric Gordon
Austin Rivers
'14 1st round pick

Woogie98,Durant35, thanks guys. Really thought of the deal, I was going for Hibbert but soon thought that getting Granger was better. I'll just update the Lakers, Grizzlies game (pre-Granger deal) and Heat (post-Granger deal) all at once probably tomorrow.

Yeah I would have done Gordon for George straight up as it is, so you did really well on that trade. Pacers must be looking to rebuild or at least retool and must have their eye on something in this draft.
Vaz/George/Granger/AD/Lopez is a very well rounded and defensively solid lineup already!

Thanks, guys. I haven't been able to update since I was trying out for my school's senior basketball team the last 2 days but somehow got cut probably because the coach doesn't know me since I'm new in my school. On Friday I'm trying out again.

Mark., BTW, Vasquez has been traded to the Cavs for Thompson and Flynn is my PG. Anyways, thanks for the feedback!

Let's hope it's the 8th seed. My goal is to at least make the playoffs. My number one weakness is the point guard position. Flynn isn't the type of player that I want. Anyway, I haven't been able to update since RL has been busy for me right now. I could do some replies like this but not updates though.

Gasol-less Lakers hold off Hornets; 100-97


The struggling Lakers has been once again saved by their usual savior, the Black Mamba. Bryant scored 25 points in the first half and finished with 37 in the game. 9 of his points came in the closing quarter after hitting a tough, clutch basket with 1:20 remaining and 2 free throws in the final seconds. Gordon played great defense against Bryant throughout the second half, but who could stop a player who really plays their best under pressure? Steve Nash added 16 points, 11 assists and actually played great D with 4 steals. The Hornets hacked Dwight in the 4th which helped them a bit to stay in the game.
Despite 22 points and 15 boards from Thompson and 21 from Davis. They had a very hard time scoring in the paint because of Dwight. They couldn't position themselves and as a result shot poorly.

Memphis blow by Hornets; 110-96


The top-seeded Grizzlies crush the up-and-down Hornets squad behind a combined 52 points from Gay and Allen. The Grizzlies went off a fast start leading the Hornets by 11 at the first period, but Davis led the Hornets on cutting the lead to four at halftime. Gay shot an efficient 11-18 from the field and Allen was locked down both on offense and on defense. He stood out on both ends on the floor, first on the offensive side by being aggressive and knocking down his jumpers; on defense, he made Gordon shoot poorly with only 4-21 from the field.

Re: (17-13) The Big Easy | Hornets survive Heat in OT

Postby mrmoves20 on Wed Jan 23, 2013 10:30 am

Short-handed Heat lose in OT against the Hornets


With the recent moves the Hornets have made, piece by piece they are starting to look a playoff contender. They beat the short-handed Heat in OT 112-108, who were without two members of the Big 3, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, both who were injured 3 weeks ago and are now nearing their return. The game remained close all night, only Hornets had a double figure lead of 12, but immediately the Champs started to rally in the third.
The Hornets were leading by at least 6 points in the final minute when Battier hit two consecutive three-pointers, the second one coming off LeBron's steal, tying the game 93 apiece.
In overtime, the Heat never led thanks to the defense of the newly-acquired George and Granger from Indiana. Granger pulled the Hornets away in the closing minutes to seal the game hitting 4 free throws.

Hornets 24 27 22 20 *19 | 112
Heat 23 22 25 23 *15 | 108

Top Performers

Hornets
Granger 25 points 10 rebounds 2 assists
George 21 points 4 rebounds 3 assists
Davis 15 points 8 rebounds
Fisher 12 points 3 rebounds 4 assists

Heat
James 32 points 9 rebounds 9 assists 14-35 FG

Nice win! Glad the ex Pacer wings are playing well for you. Can't get over how good I think that trade was for you. You are set for the next few years now.

Lebron was uncharacteristically inefficient.

Heat looking for a Center to pair with Bosh


The Heat, who have played great despite missing Wade and Bosh most of the season are now looking for a Center to play with Bosh in the First 5. The Heat have been in the low-20s this year in rebounding and missing some inside presence. Bosh has had back-to-back injuries in his knees and back which has been the primary concern for the Champs. The Heat are reportedly interested in Wolves C Pekovic.

In Eric Gordon's return to New Orleans since the Dec. 7 trade that sent him to Indiana in exchange for Danny Granger, the Pacers get blown out by the Hornets who outscored them 38-17 in the opening period, and 101-81 after the game. Gordon played like the Gordon the Hornets traded, only scoring 16 points and struggling from the floor. Gerald Green led the Pacers in scoring with 24 points. For the Hornets, 4 players scored in double figures led by Granger who had 21 points, followed by George with 19. Davis added 18 points and Flynn had 14 points and 9 dimes.

The Hornets led early in the game and they never looked back. Especially in the fourth where they sealed the game. Granger and Davis played big as well, both scoring at least 17 points and grabbing 7 boards. The Hornets finish December, and the month on a two-game winning streak.

Celtics part ways with Jason Terry


The Boston Celtics have traded G Jason Terry also known as "The Jet" to the Indiana Pacers for F Gerald Green and F Miles Plumlee. Terry has grown upset with the the way the Ainge and Rivers have managed the team, who are currently 16-20 and are sitting just 9th place in the East. Terry was supposed to be a replacement for Heat G Ray Allen but those plans seemed to be broken now. The Celtics are looking to rebuild following the end of the season, or probably slowly starting right now.

Celtics get:
Gerald Green
Miles Plumlee

Pacers get:
Jason Terry
'13 2nd round pick

Conclusion: Right now, the Pacers have a very slight edge over the Celtics with this trade, but for the long-term, the Celtics might have gotten away with it but only time could tell. They have lost a reliable clutch shooter in Terry but acquired a highly-athletic player in Green. Both Greens, Jeff and Gerald look to provide energy off the bench.

Hawks skid extend to 4 following blowout loss to the Hornets


The Hawks, who are the top-seeded team in the East, have lost all of their last 4 games. Only Lou Williams seemed to be on the groove tonight leading all scorers with 31 points and 11-17 shooting from the field. The Hawks started out slow shooting only 4-18 (22%) from the field in the first quarter to the Hornets 12-18 (75%).
The Hornets have opened up 2013 with a win, who have really improved defensively in their current 4-game winning streak, led by Davis in the paint and George in the perimeter. George had another All-Star like performance tonight as he scored 30 points and grabbed 9 rebounds.
Danny Granger have also been playing well since he was traded to the Hornets, as he scored 21 points and 6 rebounds. Clearly, the ex-Pacers have been a big addition to this young, uprising team.

ATL 9 24 27 28 | 88
NOH 31 21 25 29 | 106

Top Performers

Hawks
Williams 31 points 4 rebounds 6 assists
Evans 13 points 5 assists 3 steals
Smith 12 points 2 steals 5-16 FG

Hornets
George 30 points 9 rebounds 2 assists
Granger 21 points 6 rebounds
Davis 12 points 8 rebounds

Warrick out for 6-8 weeks with Broken Hand


The 30-year old veteran Hakim Warrick is out for 6-8 weeks with a broken hand he sustained last Dec. 30 during practice. He fell awkwardly after jumping for a rebound a landed on his hand. He will need surgery to fix his hand. This is a pretty huge blow for the Hornets as Warrick has been a solid backup for both Davis and Thompson. Warrick is averaging 5.4 points and 4.7 rebounds for the Hornets.

Paul George is a beast in this game! He's like a younger LBJ for me. I sure hope he could turn into that kind of player.

Oh wonder who it was, McGee then, would be insane if it was Chandler, unless it was for Bosh or something.
