Gordon is just a greedy SOB. This smells like Michael Redd all over again. Gordon is massively talented, and if healthy he deserves to be an All-Star multiple years. I just honestly cannot stomach the fact that we were going to offer him massive amounts of money EVEN THO I LOVE HIM and he's so damn injury prone.
I hope he remains healthy and gets what he wants but in all honesty, I think w/e team pays for him is making a big ass mistake. Maybe he proves everyone wrong and stays in shape and remains injury free. He's got a lot to prove and a lot to make up for. But all I see is a talented, over-hyped, injury-prone SG that is going to massively hurt the salary cap space of w/e team he goes to. AND in a couple of years when he gets waived or traded to some poor team that is willing to take on his huge contract, I'll be the first guy to say that he will, in exact words say "I can't wait to play for ( insert team name here ) I think this is the best place for me, I always wanted to be here and I look forward to making a comeback and showing this team and the league what I can do and help out in any way I can to help this team win and make it to the post season."
Something along those lines.
