Eric Gordon of the New Orleans Pelicans says he still has more to give to the team. He’s averaging almost 16 points a game, and says he has even more to give.
“Individually, I think I can give more, do more,” Gordon said after practice Monday, one day after his 14 points helped the Pelicans win for the third time in four games. “People here think I should be this big-time 20-point (per game) scorer. This is more of a team game here, this system here. It’s a different adjustment. For me, now it’s all about playing as many games as possible and getting my body back to being used to playing an 82-game season, because I haven’t had that in almost two to three years now.”
Gordon has been involved with various talks regarding trades with the Pelicans. However, he’s putting all of that behind him as he is focused solely on producing more on the court.
