Eric Gordon reportedly lost weight this offseason, and I believe it too. In the first quarter of the Rockets’ first game, he baptized rookie Jordan Bell after blowing by him to get to the rim.
There’s nothing like cramming it on someone with two hands and doing a rim pull-up for good measure. That was a cold-ass jam.
A few minutes later, Gordon made Shaun Livingston eat his dust before packing in a one-handed jam.
Gordon was the Sixth Man of the Year last year, won the 3-Point Contest and was the healthiest he had been since his very early 20s. This year, he’s in even better shape. Maybe Jeremy was right when he said Gordon would be better.
