brooklyn_baller318, I did my research. Gordon stinks.
Gordon is just a 6"3 SG that is a poor rebounder/passer/defender.
Gordon averaged 3.6 turnovers and only 2.2 assist. He plays like Jamal Crawford and shoots 33% from 3pt land.
Gordon and Crawford play too similar. Crawford is better than Gordon rigt now since Crawford can atleast play PG. Gordon is just stuck at one position, like his game; one dimensional.
He's nothing special, 3.6 turnovers to 2.2 assist; you can't trust his ball handling at all. His shot selection is so awful and he came out shooting 33% (not so great). He should be a good rebounder for someone with his ability, but I guess he doesn't like rebounding at a high rate. Defensively he has a lot of work to do.
Eric Gordon is just really a chunkier version of Ben Gordon with less shooting ability. Theres no doubt Gordon can score the basketball, but so can Robinson, Marbury and Crawford. We didn't need Gordon; we need a guy we can build around and a guy with versility or just a pure PG (Augustin)
Gordon is the last of the great lottery guards in this draft behind Mayo, Rose, Bayless, Augustin and Westbrook.
Watch Gordon play more, he's the biggest ball hog in this draft, if you don't like Crawford, why would you like Gordon? He plays as wreckless and as turnover prone as Crawford. He's nothing but a streaky undersized one dimensional SG.
Gordon was terrible the last two months. He shot 21% (16 out of 77) 3pt shots. That's pretty awful. Gordon routinely would heave up bowling balls from well beyond the NBA 3-point line (some of which weren’t even close), even though he obviously needed to get himself easier shots at the rim. When he did try and take the ball to the basket. Gordon force a lot of plays hence the reason for his high turnovers and low assist. He tends to settle for tough fade-awayjumpers with bigger and longer defenders drapped all over him contesting his shot with very little success for Gordon's undersized self.
Gordon's other weakness is palming violations, traveling and getting into offensive fouls. He's not a very smart player which makes him very turnover prone. Gordon's below average ball handling skills and lack of mid range is an issue for him that had scouts questioning how successful he would be in the NBA. He often is out of control by the time he gets to the rim due to the lack of control he shows dribbling at high speeds. He doesn’t value possessions enough, as evidenced by his 3.6 turnovers per game
Defensively, Gordon shows a great deal of potential; but we haven't seen any performance to show he could be a good defender.
it would be helpful for yourself to do your homework and understand Gordon's attributes; strength and weaknesses would best fit for a 6th man like Ben Gordon or Ginobili. Thats not bad. I do believe Gordon will be a good NBA player, but you can't see him on the level of a Mayo or Rose. Mayo and Rose bring dfferent dimensions to the game that make them more valuable, ie; scoring, defense, penatration, creating plays, making assist, etc. and generally these two elite athletes are easier to build around. Rose is the best PG, Mayo is the best SG. If Gordon isn't scoring, what else is he doing or can he do? If you say turning the ball over, then we have a winner!
lilman_bklyn, everyone on this site should punch you in the ****ing mouth with the first 3 words in your paragraph, I didn't even read the rest of your non-sense. You on some type of cocaine or something. Check yourself over, you don't know **** about Gallinari, so just shut the **** up and do your research and come back, because we all got homework to do on Big ****. Thats the nicest way I could put it.
