    His contract is so good he’s have to get arrested for a crime for it to be a bad contract

    Can the mods actually work? I don’t pay a premium for nothing do I?

    Gordon lost 10-15 lbs coming into the season so he would be quicker

    He’s probably just adjusting to the weight, that’s why he seems uncoordinated

    Bragging about your like to post ratio on the internet reeks a lack of self confidence, discuss.

    Seems about right. Can you tell me how great I am so I can have some sort of self worth? It is ok, you can lie.

    No. And No to the highest degree of NO.

    EGO is one of the most disciplined players in the league. His fight through season after season after injury is his constant reminder to become stronger, better and efficient.

    Those of you ready to dump EGo fail to recognize what he brings to the team. Small Sample: Western Finals. Multiple games of crucial three point shots in final minute(s). Without those, GS wins.

    So, NO.

    EGo is going to play hard regardless. And, a very trustworthy, close ear has told me multiple times how much EGo LOVES the city of Houston's community. He'll never tank. Even if he knew he was being traded, he would still play out of pride and love.

    Morey gave EGo a second chance in this league. Without this team and its structure, EGo is not 6th ,man of the year and a legitimate threat. In any other system that doesn't value his talent, he's just another spot up shooter. Houston gave him new legs.

    Morey also gave Ryan Anderson a second chance. Unfortunately, he lost confidence and allowed off-court issues to interfere. The injuries didn't help.

    Ego deserves every dollar in that contract. He plays hard, ESPECIALLY when his shot isn't falling. His defense is underrated.


    No.

    Really appreciate this post from @Codman on EG. Yeah he has been in a slump, but he lays it on the line every night. I think he will turn it around. He came around a bit last night as well.
