Some in league circles were shocked to learn last evening that Eric Gordon has rejected a 4 year contract extension offered to him by the New Orleans Hornets.  It was known that Gordon was looking for a deal similar to the one that Thunder guard Russell Westbrook received just days earlier.

"We all worked hard on the extension, but sometimes business is business," Gordon said. "Right now my sole focus is on staying in great shape, and making sure I get back to 100 percent health as quickly as possible, so I can return to playing and helping my teammates and Coach Monty win games. That is really what it is all about right now for me."
