Eric Gordon is very excited to return to Indiana.

He's going to have a day to swallow this horrible loss against the Bulls... Where he committed a rookie mistake and fouled Ben Gordon making a 4 point play to tie the game.

It's just sad to see, when EJ got benched at the end, he had a look in his eye.. Looked like he was welling up. The kid does NOT like to lose... And he's not a softie either. Just seeing emotion like that gets me excited for next game.. He's one of those guys that, when he gets his feelings hurt, will come out with a vengeance.

The kid's defense for a 19 year old is out of this world. His defense for being a rookie is mind blowing, and his defense for being an undersized shooting guard is just unbelievable. He has such a bright future- scoring is something we already knew he could do. Defense is where he's shocking everybody.

Indiana as you may all know, is where he went to college. He has a LOT of fans there (he was Indiana's Mr. Basketball) and he was the one that carried his team every game. I'm sure he's going to have alot of fun coming back home, hopefully we can expect a big game from him.

I took a vid of my TV to show you guys his quickness and hops (he dunked this one from like 2 feet inside the free throw, but the most amazing part was the fact that he started taking his two steps AT THE 3 POINT LINE and finished with a dunk)

Lol, those of you who like college highlights, Gordon was a BEAST in Indiana:

I saw that last night. Its tough but the rookie mistakes will make him a better player in the long run. We all remember Kobe air balling potential game winners. Its all part of the process. EG will be a very good player. I enjoy his game.

He claimed while playing at Indiana, most of the other players were on drugs and it was the downfall of the team.

Yeah I saw that. Ramona Shelburne was the first to post it I believe. But yeah, I definitely agree, rookie mistakes will help him. It was just sad when he walked over to the bench and a few of the guys were like.. Patting his back, trying to comfort him.. He did his best, and did all he could. Just made a rookie mistake.

Even Derrick Rose at the end of the game said it, because Rose the other day did almost the same thing. Bulls were down 3 and he fouled someone in the act of shooting a 3, it went into overtime cause of that and the Bulls lost cause of it. So he knows how it feels.

That' true. Gordon is for real. I know he is a rookie and all, but he is going to be a star.

Alright guys, I updated the video.. I put in some slow mo and analysis. I decided it's too hard to realize what a nice dunk it was without slowing it down a bit and seeing exactly where he started taking his steps. It's crazy hard to stop dribbling AT THE 3 POINT LINE, take 2 HUGE strides and end up with a ferocious dunk like that.

This kid's gona be for real.

It's technically Friday (it's 2:58 AM). All eyes are on Gordon today at 4:00 PM. I know there's the Laker game at like 5:30 I believe? But at least watch the beginning of the Clips game, and keep your eye on Gordon.

I'll be switching back and forth as usual when there's a Clips game and a Lakers game.
