I watched Eric Gordon and I'm not really impressed. He's a career 44% shooter. He doesn't rebound (2.5 career average) or pass (3.3 career average).
He's like a slightly smarter,non rebounding and injury prone version of J.R. Smith.
On the other hand Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry are complete players and 100 times better than Eric Gordon.
If I'm going to take an injured player he has to be really good. Eric Gordon isn't.
Eric Gordon is a shooting guard.
3 assists from your 2 spot is elite...top 5 worthy this past season.
How many rebounds do you expect you shooting guard to get? The best in the game only got 5.
BTW 44% from the wing is considered solid.
Even Allan Houston only had one year better as a Knick and put up similar rebounding and assists number and he was 6-6.
