Scouting Report on Eric Gordonby Jerry Meyer - 11/28/2005
Powerfully built but also highly skilled, Gordon is a true combo guard with a refined all around game. He can shoot from deep either off the catch or the dribble, attack the basket from any direction and can score in the midrange. He also has a dangerous post up game and can distribute the ball as well as score. Defensively he has the quickness and strength to guard any perimeter player. Along with O.J. Mayo, he is as complete a guard prospect as there is on the circuit.
