Gordon is the poster child for what is wrong with the NBA. Team signs a player and is absolutely stuck when they tank or refuse to play. Pro sports need to go the way of the rest of the world. Don't do your job, you don't get paid.
I've been saying this about Gordon and the NBA (and MLB) for years. The guaranteed contracts in the NBA and MLB are ridiculous. Once a player gets signed they have no motivation to work harder and they know that no matter what, they're still getting paid every dime of their contract. At least in the NFL they set up their contracts to where only x-amount of it is guaranteed (usually around 15-35%) and the rest has to be earned through incentives, games played, etc.. That protects them from entitled people like Eric Gordon who have poor character and a poor work ethic.
I guarantee you if only x-amount of Gordon's contract was guaranteed then most of his tick tack, sissy "injury" excuses would go away.
