Andy Katz of ESPN.com has named Eric Gordon his national player of the week.
Katz says Gordon will be a legitimate national player of the year candidate if he keeps up his current pace. He also calls Gordon hitting 13-of-16 free throws against Georgia Tech “remarkable.”
Katz should have seen some of the guys who used to play in my driveway when we were about 13. They’d be something like 17-of-20 “incredible” from the line on a good day. Sadly, they received no awards from ESPN.com, but surely that’s only because there was no Internet at the time.
