It’s clear that the New Orleans Hornets and Eric Gordon both need a breath of fresh air. The two parties have had a tenuous relationship, at best, since the star shooting guard joined the club in the winter of 2011. The team has received little return on its investment, so it’s not surprising to hear that the 24-year-old is on the block and could be moved by Thursday’s NBA trade deadline.
Per New Orleans Times-Picayune:
After scoring a team-high 20 points in Tuesday night’s loss to Chicago Bulls, New Orleans Hornets guard Eric Gordon appeared unsure about what may happen before Thursday’s trade deadline. Trade rumors are starting to swirl that the Hornets might be willing to part ways with Gordon if they can land the right deal.
ESPN’s Chris Broussard tweeted Tuesday night that the Hornets have made Gordon available for a trade, but that it’s not likely to happen because teams are concerned about his health going forward.
Hornets officials had no comment regardi...

Anthony Davis did not play much for most of his first month or so in the NBA thanks to some injuries. As a result I think the Hornets have made a point to hold back on his minutes as he gets acclimated to the pro game.
He is still having a solid rookie season with 12.5 points and 7.5 boards a game in just under 28 minutes a game. It isn't going to make him competitive for...
Since the NBA had the night off last night, we here at Outside the Boxscore were devoid of any professional slam dunks.
However, today is another day and New Orleans Hornets center Anthony Davis provided us with a good effort against the Chicago Bulls.
Watch as the first pick of the 2012 NBA Draft throws down a one-handed dunk from teammate Greivis Vasquez:
For anyone that was watching the game, that’s is exactly what happened. Kyrie scored 20 points in the 7 minutes of the 4th quarter.
“Kyrie really took the game over and put his team on his back. But we did a bad job trying to be physical with him. We just let him walk in the lane and get buckets. You’ve got to take some hard fouls and make guys earn it.”
The staff of the New Orleans Hornets really were considerate to Nate Robinson and his “small stature”. Check out the modifications they made to the visiting Chicago Bills locker room on Tuesday.
When you actually think about it, being 5’9 isn’t that short for the average American male. But I guess when you’re in the NBA it’s like being the size of Snooki.
If I was Nate...
It’s been an unusual NBA trade deadline week in that there have been zero deals completed with less than 24 hours to go. But that doesn’t mean the rumors haven’t been abundant, mainly potential blockbusters centering around Dwight Howard and Josh Smith. Locally speaking, on Tuesday we shared the rumor that the Warriors might trade a couple of their minimum-salary players to...
The New Orleans Hornets made some modifications to their locker room before the Chicago Bulls arrived. Instead of the normal sized locker, 5’9” Nate Robinson, got some modifications to his from the Hornets Pelicans’ ball boy.
The ball boy got word that @nate_robinson was coming to play the Hornets . So he gave him his own special… instagr.am/p/V8DBKuxkOK/

Though the ESPN trucks are rolling into Cleveland for the team’s first nationally televised game of the season, the New Orleans Hornets will be without star shooting guard Eric Gordon who continues to have issues with his troublesome knee.
“It might be painful for awhile,” Gordon said on Tuesday. “If there’s no fracture then I feel like I need to play.”
