Eric Gordon's knee feels "pretty good"

quote:

Eric Gordon, when healthy, is one of the more exciting scorers in the NBA, but the issue has been staying healthy. Knee injuries have dogged him the past few years. With three more years left on a four-year, $44 million deal, Gordon has to show that he’s worthy of his contract and must see the building plan through in New Orleans. His desire to remain with the Pelicans has been questioned. “It’s good to see the team make some changes in a good, positive way, and for me, I look forward to getting this year started,” he said. “[The personnel moves] change things. I could see us playing a faster pace. It’s exciting because we’re all young and it’s all about getting our chemistry down now.”



quote:

Gordon welcomed the additions of Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday, who make the Pelicans more versatile in the backcourt, giving Monty Williams the ability to play a smaller lineup. “It’s always good to have good, upcoming guys, that’s the point of us growing together and seeing what we can do for the future,” Gordon said. “It seems to be really good, it’s all about clicking early and having everybody healthy in training camp.

I have known [Holiday and Evans] since high school, and it’s good to be able to get to know those guys again.” Gordon hasn’t played more than 62 games since 2009-10. He is nearly at full strength, which will give the Pelicans a proven scorer. “Health-wise, I’ve been doing pretty good, been taking it slow but moving around really well,” he said. “As long as I get to the 100 percent point before training camp, that’s what I’m looking forward to.”

Gordon is determined to prove worthy of his deal and remain a rising star despite his scoring average decreasing each of the past two seasons. “It’s not like I’ve been playing terrible, I just haven’t been fully effective to where I should be,” he said. “I look forward to that this year.”

If Gordon really wanted to endear himself to the fans he should take a picture holding a sign saying "Pretty Good". It would show he has a sense of humor and would make me like him more.

This would be pretty epic.
