As long as I get the ball in my hands, I'll be able to create plays for others and for myself," especially when "we find a way to be in attack mode," said the 6-foot-3 Gordon, an Indianapolis native who turns 21 on Christmas Day."
Let's try to keep track of what happens in the upcoming road trip when Eric Gordon gets the ball. Let's try to see if the Clippers offense starts to become more fluid. To me, it seems like it isn't always the guy with the basket or assist that gets the team flowing. Sometimes the guy passing out of the double team or the guy making the pass by recognizing a mismatch makes teams go.
If I had a statistition to hire, I would ask him to keep track of how many points, passes, and assists result when Eric Gordon touches the ball in a play versus not touching it at all. I would also like to see comparisions of the field goal percentage of each situation.
Now is the time to see how valuable Eric Gordon can be to the Clippers. Maybe we can have an Eric Gordon status report after this road trip.
PS: It is great/interesting to hear Gordon's eagerness to first create for others before himself (he uses the word 'others' before 'myself'). What do you make of it? Is there anything to make of it?
