I'm no Gordon fan, and wished that we could have worked a sign and trade with Phoenix when it was possible, but do you really think we can trade Gordon for someone who has as much talent and ability, and who can win as many games as he can? Don't we owe it to fans to put the best team on the floor next year talent wise, after having suffered through the last two years. That is my only concern - trading him will reduce the overall quality of the team. Maybe we should stick with him another year, make playoffs, maybe win a round, and then look to move him once we see what the first Pelican team has.

Thanks, Jason. I asked the question because I remember around the time of the CP3 trade fodder Bill Simmons had something up on Grantland where he was saying he didn't think they should trade Gordon and he had a video I remember watching where it showed how fundamentally sound EJ's jumpshot was even down to the way he landed in the same spot but I couldn't find it Lol. I did find this http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/p/34616490/Bill-Simmons-on-Eric-Gordons-Jumpshot-circa-2008-a.aspx and I also found this footnote to be ironic, funny and depressing in so many ways while searching for said column http://prntscr.com/10tppv Funny and sad are obvious but it's ironic because he says "when you factor in the part where the team with the tortured history is giving up the farm for a superstar with a possible knee problem" and now it's almost the opposite Lol. WE HAVE BEEN CURSED BY THE CLIPPERS TROJAN HORSE!!! On the brightside I think the name change from Hornets to Pelicans should stop the curse so prepare for Eric Gordon to become a rich man's James Harden next year! #GeauxPels
Sweep the leg, Marcus! Loved the L.A. game. (except for the end) Xavier = poor man's Michael Beasley.
