Gordon is 2.06m tall, has an excellent wingspan of 2.13m, and weighs 100kg, but Gordon suffers no matter which position he plays. If you play the 4th position, Gordon’s physical strength is not enough, especially the lack of lower body strength, making it difficult for him to withstand offensive players on the defensive end. But if he is on the 3rd position, the foot movement speed is slow, especially the slow lateral movement speed makes it difficult for him to keep up with the 3rd position player. Therefore, the current “no three, no four” player positioning is the biggest problem Gordon has encountered. No matter what position he is in, he does not have enough matchup advantage, and he will naturally struggle offensively and defensively, but he is only 23 years old, and it seems The potential is limitless.
