He couldn't even beat a 45-year-old Dragic off the dribble last night. The only thing he can really do is settle for long contested jumpers.
After that year he had as a legitimate top 20 player, he hasn't been able to stay healthy and one of the injuries he suffered was major. People seem to be forgetting that.
He looks like that for year and half now. Last year he played 36 games and averaged 18 points on 42% FG (51% TS).
This year was even worst.
He won't get any younger and his health is declining. That's what happends when your game is based on being fastest, most athletic player in the room. It simply does not age well.
Hence, main reason i have zero desire to pay Gordon after his contract is up.
