Eric Gordon is very, very good. In a few years he will be one of the best slashing guards in the league. The Clippers were only going to trade him for a handful of players in the league (Chris Paul being one of them).

As a bonus track, here is Russell Westbrook breaking Luke Ridnour’s ankles from Tuesday.
