Welcome Your Newest Hornets

Published: December 17, 2011

The Hornets welcomed Eric Gordon, Al-Farouq Aminu, and Chris Kaman to the squad today. The trio spoke in front of a group that included Hugh Weber, Jac Sperling, Dell Demps, the Hornets media, and James Carville. First impression of the guys is that Chris Kaman is hilarious, Aminu doesn’t have the firmest grasp of the word “apprehensive” (unless he truly is fearful for the future), and Eric Gordon is a lot more aggressive on the court than in the press room.

Monty, as usual, had a few of the most memorable quotes–

“I’m excited. We were putting plays in and [the former Clippers] were standing off to the side listening because they can’t do anything right now, and I was in my mode. I have, like, visions and I’m not counting sheep. I’m counting buckets and defensive stops.”

“We plan on winning. We plan on winning big and we’re not going to settle for anything other than that.” BOOM! MONTY JUST DUNKED IN YOUR FACE! WAIT! ACTUALLY HE JUST SWATTED YOUR ATTEMPTED DUNK. THAT’S HOW MONTY ROLLS. DEFENSE, BABY!
