Gordon one of 27 named to Team USA

 

Three weeks ago the Team USA basketball team roster was announced. Eric Gordon was one of 27 players named to the team. A total of six players named to the roster came out of the 2008 draft: Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, OJ Mayo, Kevin Love, Brook Lopez, and Gordon.

 

Others named to the team include:

LaMarcus Aldridge F/C

Carmelo Anthony F

Chauncey Billups G

Carlos Boozer F

Chris Bosh F

Kobe Bryant G

Kevin Durant G

Rudy Gay F

Danny Granger F

Dwight Howard F/C

Andre Iguodala F

LeBron James F

Al Jefferson C

David Lee F/C

Lamar Odom F

Chris Paul G

Kendrick Perkins C

Ama’re Stoudemire C

Dwayne Wade G

Gerald Wallace F

Deron Williams G

 

By no means is this roster made up of the 27 best players in the NBA. Some players opted out of consideration. Those selected for the pool were named for different reasons and roles. But, it’s obvious that the selection committee has a high regard for EJ.

 

Is Gordon an up-and-coming star in the NBA? Or, is he a player who’s too small to guard and too inconsistent with the 3? Has he regressed this season from last? If so, why was he named to Team USA?
