    Yes. Racist.

    ...or maybe he's just extremely injury prone?

    Ridiuclous.


    That said, i'd love to have Eric Gordon for cheap and short contract but i'm having a hard time seeing him in the starting lineup and i don't see him working on the bench with Michael Beasley shooting every time he touches the ball..Gordon's been a very high usage player his whole career.

    Someone want to clue me in on how he'd fit in either a starting role or bench role?

    PG: Conley
    SG: Gordon
    SF: Harden

    That can compete with anyone

    Great news,

    now the Rockets can finally have a player whose a worse defender than Harden.

    What a big relief for our superstar.

    They had Brewer last year and 3 average defenders at best in the starting lineup( (Bev,Howard and Ariza).

    worth the gamble in a bench role. 38% career 3pt shooter.

    Well they already had Jason Terry, Micheal Beasley, and Terrence Jones so they already had worse defenders than Harden.

    Except you're missing a PF, C, & bench.

    Maybe you need to get off this kick of yours.

    Gordon is very talented but he's never healthy.

    Mark Jackson is a nice guy but he can't coach.

    Nothing to do with their race.

    He would be a good signing and fit if he can stay fit.

    6th man of the year and would be a great fit next to Harden to take some of the scoring pressure off him... but he would obviously have to stay healthy. Something he hasn't done his entire career. I've always been a fan of his though.

    Perfect backup for harden if he could actually play more than 40 games.

    I think he'd matchup better defensively at the 3 than the 2.

    As others have mentioned, health would be the main concern here. Those type of issues don't get better with age.
