Eric Gordon is definitley still regarded as a top NBA player. After only playing in 9 games this past season Gordon improves his NBA Rank by going up to 38 from 39. Gordon was ranked in between Luol Deng(37) and Danny Granger(39).
The 11-12 season for Gordon may have been a let down but it was not a dissapointing season numbers wise, he averaged 20.6 points per game with a 19.23 Player Effenciency Rate. Imagine the numbers Gordon can put up if he stays healthy and is able to build some momentum. Also now the Hornets have other weapons with the additions of Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers, and Ryan Anderson. They will take a lot of pressure and attention off Gordon. The Hornets have a great young core and Gordon will be leading the charge.
If Eric Gordon can stay healthy for a full season expect him to be considered as an NBA All-Star.
