I think we may have found out why CLT traded Okafor

10 posts in this topic

Okafor has come down with some mysterious injury(1st a knee injury and now toe) and hasn't played a minute of basketball for the Hornets yet. Not in camp or preseason, folks here are starting to get worried as his return date keeps getting moved back. Was there some kind of injury the Cats knew about and was why they were so willing to trade him?

Im sure your doctors gave him a physical before the trade was completed. Okafor has always had an injury history since he's been in the league.

That's the thing-the Hornts acknowledged this injury in the summer but they basically wrote it off as nothing. Being that our medical staff is a joke it's a serious possibility that they misdiagnosed Emeka's injury.

Emeka played in all 82 games the most recent two seasons. His injuries happened early in his career. He is a double-double lock almost every night when he plays.

Just sounds like bad luck right now.

This.

The trade was all about money. I hope he gets better. I wanted to see him with CP3.

Charlotte's revenge on the hornets for leaving.

“He might have been cleared medically, but from a mental standpoint he is not cleared,” New Orleans coach Byron Scott said. “In his mind, he says he’s not ready. When you have a guy that says he is not ready, the worst thing you can do is force him to get out there.”

Apparently Okafor is not injured anymore, he's just a vagina.

In adidition to that, an unamed Hornets player told Yahoo sports that they'll lose confidence in him if he doesn't play soon.

Me so happy right now, plus watching the season preview on NBA TV for the Cats, getting me so pumped.

    • I took it as voth getting defensive on behalf of the media when Gettleman slighted them in his comments. I like voth, but I don't like the attitude I've seen for years that is typical among media/journalists. .."we are owed access to everything and everyone.  Don't you dare turn us down or speak ill about us or we'll make you pay."
    • If y'all want to talk about a legit issue with illegals lets talk about the babies they make here and then the inability to collect child support when they peace out.  Until the Trump goes after the business that employee them, it's all pious claptrap.
    • I'm very familiar with the passage and the events that brought about His answer. Yes, the response was savvy, but He also didn't lie. There's another important passage about a widow donating her last two coins while the rich man donated more, but less, too. I'm sure you can massage that to nuance something to assuage your soul, but really, when it comes down to it all, there are some folks on the Conservative side that preach long and hard about following Jesus. The problem is that when they get to the part about taking care of the sick, the poor, the incarcerated and the downtrodden, they suddenly have a host of excuses and want to start parsing the wording so that they don't have to look at themselves and say, "Man, I'm supposed to be there for the less fortunate, but nah, not really. I mean, yeah, Salvation and all, but now we're talking about my hard-earned money." They always want the New Testament's forgiveness to apply to themselves, and they delight in the Old Testament being visited upon other folks. Outside of religion, they're also the ones who think it's a crying shame that "those people" don't have the means to fix themselves and then shake it off with the rationalization that those folks probably got themselves into that mess in the first place. We're all guilty of that to some degree, sadly, myself included.
