This is probably the best way to respond to the latest anti-Clipper stylings of David Thorpe. Eric Gordon has three games left to position himself as the statistical leader for rookies in February. It should combine with a solid showing in the rookie-sophomore game (you know, the one where the commentators were having a little trouble on their background and research on EJ--thanks for all the great pub Dave!) to make him a prime candidate. And he won it in January, right?
Back to back ROM's would have to put Gordon into a more serious discussion with Mr. Thorpe's vaunted elite Gang of Four. Pretty funny how Thorpe used the comment on how bad Gordon's team is, when you're talking about the Thunder, Grizzlies, Nets and Bulls, all of them really tearing it up. How about the possibility that the Clips and Gordon's best is yet to come, now that he's going to be playing with a legitimate NBA roster?
Other guys have been just as good for longer? Really? Gordon has been pretty good--better, judging by his statistical advantage--for a pretty long time now.
Three big games.
