    Default Gordon or Mayo?

    Between those two names being brought up frequently, I'm curious as to who people want at SG for the future.

    *Keep in mind getting EJ is going to come at a higher price than Mayo.

    I know who you're going with and I strongly agree.

    I want EJ in a Pacers uniform and I'm willing to give LAC Danny for him. He's going to be a top star and is already solid.

    Since both names have been brought up I was interested to see who might prefer Mayo maybe because the price to get him is lower.

    If Mayo had a season like he did last year this would be debatable but with EJ improving his numbers and Mayos numbers dipping quite a bit it isnt close.
    Mayo could rebound next year but I dont think he can if he is still playing for the Grizz.

    Mintues are simliar and so are a lot of the other stats like shot attempts. EJ shoots the ball better and aves more assits and a much better PER rating this season.

    I'm debating EJ is the way better player, but as far as getting either guy, it'll probably take getting rid of Danny to get EJ and a lot less to get Mayo so I didn't know who'd be picky with who we give up to get him and would just rather give up a little to get Mayo.

    I'd glady trade Danny for EJ (S&T).

    Choice is easy, only hesitation is Gordon's injury history.

    I also think Mayo is better than given credit for and needs out of Memphis, but EJ FTW

    I personally would like to get both Danny to L.A. for EJ and Kamaan then do a sign and trade of McRoberts and our 1st for O.J.


    E.J. is our starting SG and O.J. is our sixth man playing both guard spots....

    Right now it is easily EJ...25 PPG already, flat out scorer, good defense comes along with it as well. He'd easily be a fan favorite and he'd be even better here with the Pacers. Mayo is very underrated, though. In the right system, I could see him eventually becoming a big-time player in the league as he's one of those players that has just been "born ready" to play basketball, just like Lance, LeBron, Durant, and all of these other young guys that have been prodigies since even before high school. Right now I believe either guy would be great for the Pacers. I think Gordon would be the safer route as well as I don't really recall any attitude problems with him whereas we've heard of the few problems that Mayo's had in Memphis and in high school. I think he's finally starting to mature, though.

    Think most of you over rate Eric Gordon. To give up our best player, for LAC 2nd best player, is downgrading.

    its not downgrading if your best player isn't as good as their second best player.

    I disagree. Although Gordon is younger, as of right now Danny granger is a better basketball player.

    I don't get why people are saying he is the Clippers second best player. Griffin may be in the highlight reel more often, but I have a hard time seeing how he is better.

    Off course all most everyone here wants Gordon. The problem is how much wil he cost? I don't see the clips trading him unless they are in way below .500 at the trade deadline next year. They have a young core and a ton of cap space for the 2012 off season. The would just match anything offer we put out to Gordon. I would love to have Gordon here, and I know anything is possible when you are talking about the Clippers, but our chances are vey slim at getting him.

    Mayo might not be as good as Gordon, but he as far off as most of you think. He can create his own shot and his defense is not as bad as some of you think. I hope we go after Mayo this summer, because he is better than any of the free agent guards we could get.

    Yep, yep, yep. At the end of their careers Gordon will be considered the better player, but the gap will be smaller than it is right now as far as public perception goes. OJ Mayo can be had for cheap, and it will be a huge steal. Everyone knows how good Eric Gordon is and you will have to pay that price. We could have a great 3 man wing rotation of PG, Mayo and Granger whereas Gordon would cost PG or Granger and more.

    That rationale is silly. Would we be downgrading to trade Granger to Miami for their 2nd best player?

    The Clippers' "2nd best player" is just as good now as our best player, is much younger and is paid much less.

    If you read all my posts I have said "as of right now" granger is a better basketball player. No question about that. I don't know how anyone can really disagree.

    If you talk Long term, then maybe yes, Gordon maybe. But as of now, no way.

    I think it would cost us too much (Danny) to get EJ. If we can get Mayo on the cheap I'd rather see that play out.

    I don't want to give up a top asset for Gordon if I can get Mayo in FA. They'll want Granger or George. I think our wing rotation is better Granger/George/Mayo than it would be Gordon/George/Dahntay.

    Besides Mayo is capable of playing to or better than his rookie year, which would make him a heck of a trade chip or a young piece to build around, at relatively little cost.

    Gordon had a much better season plus Gordon still has 10 great years left. That factors in on who you would take moving forward. It is pretty simple when Danny takes 18 shots per game he aved 24 pts. The most EJ has taken is 13 and aved 22 pts let him take 18 and he would ave more. EJ is more efficent he also plays better defense hints the reason why he played in the world championship in Turkey last year and Danny did not. Not to mention his handles are so much better than Dannys and is far more athletic.

    He'd definitely be a really good leader for us and he'd do well playing on the wing with Paul and hopefully get Nene at PF.

    EJ is one of the most underrated players in the league. He's not just a shooter. He's scores at will, he gets to the hoop and makes a good amount of clutch shots like you'd expect a guy like Wade to make. Despite his height, he's a really good defender too. You can put him on opposing 2s or PGs and he does well.

    I went back recently to watch a game where he scored 36 points (season high) against Minnesota and I was very impressed with how high his bball IQ is based on his decision making and the shots he made.

    OK, this I am curious about. We all know how skilled Gordon is, but what have you seen out of him (You may have watched him much more in the NBA than I have. I mainly saw him in college.) that shouts out "leader"?
