Gordon Focused On Making Teammates Better
The Eric Gordon-effect is noticeable. Early in the season the Hornets looked like a young team, with ups and downs in energy level. With Gordon on the floor the team seems to have an added bounce and is playing with more confidence.
“That was one of my expectations from last year,” Gordon said. “I expect a lot out of these guys. It’s time to play everybody’s role. I think everybody was scattered. When you lose a lot of games, it’s hard to figure out how to win at times. Once you start winning, and we’ve been on a roll; first time I’ve been here that we’ve had a five game winning streak. That just helps out and everybody confidence-wise has just gotten bigger.”
A lot has been made about Gordon’s commitment to New Orleans, and despite his repeated endorsement of the team the rumors still persist, however Gordon says he is starting to see the bright future his squad has in front of him.
“I understood from last year, I just didn’t play in that many games,” explained Gordon. “I’m here to win and here to make guys better. It’s definitely a great situation and the future can be really good here, hopefully we just really build up chemistry this year.”
