Default Who is Jamont Gordon ???

Birth Place Nashville, TN
Height 6-4
Weight 230 lbs.
Position G-F


Miss St Junior guard and All-SEC selection Jamont Gordon is one of the country's most versatile players, averaging 17.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists.

If he comes out he would be steal this guy in the latter rounds.

In the the tourney game against memphis st he played 38 min 7-16 from the field against a good defensive team
11 REBS 5 ASSIST WITH 21 PTS.


Gordon remains one of the best shot-creating guards in all of college basketball, capable of making something out of nothing on a regular basis thanks to his phenomenal scoring instincts. Left-handed, he shows tremendous wiggle facing up his opponent and keeping him on his heels, combined with terrific ball-handling skills and hesitation moves, excellent strength, outstanding body control, and an extremely aggressive mentality putting pressure on the defense. He’s very creative getting into the paint and finishing at the rim, drawing a fair amount of fouls in the process. Not a freakishly explosive athlete, he’s nevertheless strong and skilled enough to bounce off opponents like a bowling ball in the lane and then just hang in the air, often finishing off the glass with tremendous touch. Having someone who can create offense the way he does at the end of a shot clock on your roster is a big plus as far as many coaches are concerned, at any level of basketball.

Defensively, Gordon is very solid, clearly playing a big part in Mississippi State rating as one of the best defensive teams in the NCAA this season. He has very good tools to compete on this end of the floor—showing excellent size, strength, length, and a wide frame, while also putting a good amount of effort into his work here. At 6-4, 230, and with his wingspan, he can really overwhelm opposing guards physically with his smothering style of defense.

gordon has too weak of an off-hand. he can barely touch the ball with his right hand- i want to support this guy, the problem is he wont be an nba player due to the fact that he is one handed-imo

Good college player, may bounce around the NBA for a while, but I just don't see a full-time NBA caliber player.

Why would you post a video of him making a play with only his left hand to prove the other guy wrong when he just said he only used his left hand?

miss st reminded me of a great junior college team-

i want the best for gordon(i hope if hes an nba player that he is a nugget) - i just cant get over thinking he is too onehanded

hopefully he will prove me wrong about the one handed thing, because i LOVE the guys size/speed combo and see him as a power point gaurd

in a perfect world for me the denver nuggets bring in gordon in the second round and give him a shot at #3 or 2 point gaurd in camp

Spot on! I'd love to see him succeed, but just don't see it happening.

I don't get this.

You ask "Who is Jamont Gordon", yet you post videos and a ton of information like you know his game inside and out.
