Ben Gordon traded to Charlotte

166 posts in this topic

Nothing against Thomas Robinson, but I really hope we dont pick him. I dont see how the Ben Gordon trade eliminates Harrison Barnes. Gordon is a 6ft3 SG. Barnes is a 6ft8 SF. The SF position is now wide open, while we have 2 young guys in the post that we want to develop further in Biyombo and Mullens. Chad Ford COULD be right, but ill be highly surprised if we got Thomas Robinson. To me, its a huge ploy from our organization in hopes of getting a team who does want him to trade up.

At the end of the day and although I didnt feel this way at first, I want Harrison Barnes. Kemba, Henderson/Gordon, Barnes, Mullens, Biyombo is a good core to build around.

LOL, Maybe he can give us on the skinny on the next installation of the Star Wars saga between Bobcats jokes. I just ignored those shots when I read it. I mean, look at him. He's Chad Ford.

Haha, yeah . . . He's not a super impressive man. But seriously, it's like every NBA analyst turns into a hack comic when talking about us. Just report the trade there, handsome. No need for this stuff that knocks your 26 twitter followers dead.

I am a UNC homer.

Putting McAdoo and Davis in the same sentence is blasphemy at this point.

The reason McAdoo didn't get a lot of playing time last year is because he was basically terrible until the end of the season. He has great tools and could become a top 5 player in the draft next season, but he has a ways to go this offseason.

We shall see once the season begins. I think he is going to be a really, really good player. But he has to grow a whole lot more as a player and play with a lot more confidence before I can begin to see a comparison to Anthony Davis.

I agree. Other than those few highlights posted in this thread, McAdoo didn't do anything but run around like a headless chicken and fire airballs for most of the season.

Chad Ford:

Beal and Barnes are off our board after the BG trade.

And how exactly does Chad Ford know this?

Why would Gilchrist be on the table if Barnes isn't? It's not like he offers more, unless they plan on moving down to #4 and expect Barnes to be gone at #3.

Sticking to his ignorance about Barnes not being able to do anything but shoot, apparently.

Would anybody be surprised if part of the wheeling and dealing we move HEnderson, now that we have brought in Gordon??

No I wouldn't be surprised at all, I'll be surprised if he's still on the team come the start of the regular season though. I expect them to take a taller SG/PG player with the 24th if they pull off the Cavs trade.

    • I was a Marine Brat at Camp Lejeune NC and graduated from CLHS in 1978 and on 28 June 1978 I joined the Navy.  I retired On June 30th 2003 after 25 yrs of Naval Service and have been serving overseas to support our troops ever since. I was in Tikrit when they captured Saddam.  Soldiers from our base were the ones who actually found him.  I have been in places in Iraq called Mosul, Al Asad, and Al Kut,  I have been in Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan.  The living hell hole called FOB Shank were incoming was a daily encounter. You see young soldiers who don't even shave yet.  Some look like they lied to get in.  Men and women from every walk of life.  Putting that uniform on.  So needless to say, I am very attached and proud of every one of them.  Whether they know me or not.  Tears fill my eyes every time we lose one. (Just lost one last week). This video, I saw when it was originally aired, still make me water up.   I challenge anybody to show me a more military dedicated team, in ANY LEAGUE, ANY SPORT, that supports the troops like the Carolina Panthers.  I'll give my hated Yankees a close 2nd. ($10,00 ticket with a military ID) **at old Yankee Stadium. Carolina is a class act, plain and simple. Thanks for posting this again,
