what a game by gordon..exceeded expectations
Meh, good game though
I only watch the highlights of Gordon, and my goodness. I think this is what Monty and Dell envisioned with this offense. Granted we got down by 21 to the bobcats, so it was, by no means, a well played game, but Gordon's shots that went in didn't even move the net. Gave me chills thinking about what a healthy gordon could mean to this franchise long term.
Still undecided on what the team will actually do with Gordon though.
They are gonna say>> ERIC, do you want us to go get a #1, #2 or #3 !? Gordon is a better PG, than a #2 ! But, if we can land a CP3 or a Jennings or a Will Bynum, then OK ! But, listening to the interview with Joel Myers last night, one gets the feeling that EGO likes being "THE FACILITATOR" ! we'll see. If he stays healthy, he is filthy good !
Watching the game I can see why Dell and Monty drafted Austin. With Gordon you don't need to have a classic PG in the game because Gordon is such a great penetrator, ball handler and distributor for a SG that it is much more beneficial to have a combo guard ala Austin Rivers next him. If Austin can develop and become a better shooter... Rivers/Gordon can be a deadly combo for us.
