He should have said there were problems but what is in the past is in the past.
    Regardless, these people are like you and me and they make a paycheck the same as we do(although at a much higher pay level). Eric Gordon might be making more money than some members on the Clippers team, but the Ricky Davis and Marcus Camby's are going to be the ones who take Eric under their wings.

    It's just like working a job somewhere. If you have somebody with higher seniority or age telling you how to improve doing something, odds are you are going to listen.

    Ricky Davis is among the last guys I would want a rookie to follow, the guy is just out there. The whole point of my fist post was to say that EJ should have kept his mouth shut about the IU situation. I know it was bad but by publicly airing dirty laundry he damaged his reputation.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I don't think it did any damage to be honest. You don't see Mike Dunleavy criticizing him or anybody from Indiana coming out in the press and denying what Gordon said.

    You and I are not in a NBA locker room. If I were in that locker room with EJ I would watch my back and I am sure I am not the only one.

    I think that's overblown to be honest. There's a pretty big advantage to saying what he said.

    It's not exactly a state secret that drug use was a problem on last years' team. And for reasons that really aren't his fault, Gordon's always going to be lumped in with last years dissapointment.

    So by confirming there was drug use, that he wasn't a part of it, and that guys like DJ, whom he respected were not a part of it, removes the cloud of doubt.


    That much being said, I think Dakich's stand has been admirable. It's pretty clear that he really didn't like the players and they didn't like him. But he's stuck his neck out now twice to defend guys who gave him almost a negative effort last year.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
