    Wish we traded him to get Wood instead of losing RoCo.

    I like his long threes (when they go in). The bitching is counter-productive (even though sometimes justified).

    Unfortunately we (Rockets) need to have Eric Gordon stats: [ 18 pts.....3 rebs.....4 asts....1 stl ] per game to earn his salary or be able to trade him. If he reaches those numbers then we might as well be keeping him.

    I still might trade him for quantity over quality.......one EG salary for two wings or PF.

    He sucks and is redundant as soon as Mac gets healthy, I’d rather Mac shoot those 30 footers (not really) than him.
    We need to trade him for a backup PG

    I just posted in the game thread that his lack of effort to defend that corner 3 with 20 seconds left was about the laziest thing I’ve ever seen on a basketball court. I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt, but damn that looked bad.

    Morey gave him a fat contract extension, which makes him hard to trade. I can’t imagine anyone wanting him with that contract. That means the Rockets would have to give something up and probably not get equal value in return. I’m guessing he stays unless the Rockets trade Harden, then everything is on the table for a complete rebuild

    Questionable shot selections but still can slash shoot play excellent defence. Unless he gets you a significant piece, you keep him because his value is very low tight now.

    I give him a pass for the contract, you should check the contracts signed by the nobodies this offseason. EG still relatively a bargain.

    Playoff Gordon is a whole different animal. Averages 17ppg during the postseason, knows his role in the team, and without his help today we would've lost. I don't get the constant slander.

    I'd trade EG and his cap hit for a half eaten cheeseburger and a TPE , I cringe every time he puts the ball on the floor .... He's a crash test dummy.
