Plus Gordon doesn't play defence you can see it in his stats....

Richardson will get you a block and 1.5 steals every night!!

Hopefully you didn't mention dunking in that it has any impact on winning or losing.

Might be an idea to check their per 48 min stats seeing as Gordon played way less mins (7 per game) and came off the pine a lot. Gordon is actually better in many categories, and the rest are basically a wash, except in FT% where Gordon is way way better, which is important for a scoring guard. Plus, Gordon is 2 yrs younger.

And stats don't tell nearly the entire story of D. Not saying Gordon plays a lot (he has also been asked to be instant offense), but Jrich is no Bruce Bowen.
