Houston Rockets sharpshooter Eric Gordon joined SportsTalk 790’s The Matt Thomas show on Tuesday to discuss playing in Las Vegas, playing without fans, and much more.
With the NBA having been non-existent for a month now, the closest thing we’ve had to having action on the court has been in the form of the NBA 2K tournament, which was widely viewed as a success. This gave us the chance to hear players trash talk with one another, while also sharing their thoughts on the teams they chose to play with. Interestingly enough, both players who finished within the top two played with the Houston Rockets along the way.
We’ve also had to rely on ESPN’s H-O-R-S-E competition, which goes to show the NBA’s desperation of having some semblance of a basketball product on the floor. This wasn’t quite as interesting for Rockets fans, as there were no ties to any of the current players on the roster.
The Rockets have made headlines of their own, as general manager Daryl Morey recently discussed the Netflix special The Tiger King and his optimism regarding a return to the season. Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni also expressed his optimism regarding the same, expressing hope that the league will be resuming soon.
Add Eric Gordon to the list of people we’ve heard as it relates to the Rockets, as he spoke with Houston sports reporter Vanessa Alexander, to discuss how he’s been able to get fully healthy due to the break, among several other things. Gordon also joined SportsTalk 790’s The Matt Thomas show on Tuesday afternoon to discuss potentially playing in Vegas, pushing the start date back, and several other things.
Here are our top takeaways from the interview.
