Join Our $200 Friday Freeroll

The mixed messages coming from the Hornets and Eric Gordon about his knee are confusing.

Chris Paul
That, ladies and gentleman, is Gerald Green. He is officially the best leaper in the NBA – at the very least – until proven otherwise by another player that can actually level his chin with the rim. If this man was a high jumper in the Olympics, he’d rack up gold medals like Usain Bolt. Here are some other reactions about the posted picture:
