    everyone was talking about Harden, but EG was always the true fatass on the team...it’s good to hear he’s lost weight

    hopefully we’re not bombarded with bricks and tragic drives to the rim once play resumes

    What has EG been doing to get ready? We need him.— @lesshumbleteej

    Great question from my wholesome brother, Teej. While much of social media, as far as Rockets fans are concerned, has been about the workouts that James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been doing, they aren’t the only ones who have made efforts to stay in shape.

    Up until the hiatus, Eric Gordon had endured a pretty difficult season having to deal with a slump in production and nagging knee injuries, but he looks to have put those woes behind him. It’s a huge boost potentially if the Rockets can get a healthy Gordon. Why? If you spend enough time around this team, you’ll often hear Gordon referred to as the ‘X-factor’.

    “I think Eric Gordon’s a big key for us,” head coach Mike D’Antoni said on KHOU’s SportsExtra last week. “He has the potential to put us over the top.”

    Gordon generally keeps to himself and has never been a huge social media presence but don’t take that as a sign that he isn’t working, because he is. According to a team source, Gordon has already lost 12 pounds off his frame by way of track sprints and diet. There’s a hope that with the weight that has come off him, he’ll be able to prevent further injury to his knees.

    Our scale hasn't worked since Charles Barkley broke it. Don't trust the numbers.

    Was watching Morey and Kayleigh(?) livestream yesterday and Morey talked about how "the playoffs are where Eric earns his paycheck" and that he is going to be leaned on to be a contributor and was sorely missed this season. True words, Marloy.

    I just hope he increases his trade value. Just getting close to his contract value would be an answered prayer.

    To be fair, there’s pretty much been 1 main person around here who has constantly tried to push that narrative for years

    mike: are you sure about this daryl, they're all so short?

    daryl: but the thiccness mike. the only way this plan can fail is if james and eric suddenly both lose a lot of weight.

    mike/daryl: bwahahahahahahahaha!

    james/eric: coach, we've got great news...

    Sounds like a lie. Where's the pic? We saw James, no pic for Eric? Why because he's still a fat money thief. Fat lies from a fat boy
