No wonder the colective IQ of the NBA is going down. All the immature kids leaving school because the money they can make putting a ball in a hoop is more than most of us who actually work for a living will make in our lives makes me sick.

What an idiot. His performance the last half of the season shows he should stay in college and grow up. Hasn't the NBA and NCAA learned from mistakes like Ron Artest and other teenage thugs going pro and then getting in trouble! It's a shame that we have become a world solely interested in instant gratification.

What's a shame is that there aer so many hatersout there. Justme say the "colective' IQ of the NBA is going down, good thing your job doesn't require correct spelling.
Also, please tell me, how is Eric Gordon anything like Ron Artest? Thug? Hardly.
So what if he has achieved success through athletics? More power to him, there are so few of us who get the opportunity to pursue our passions in life. Best of luck Mr. Gordon.

Eric seems like a nice kid. Whines too much during the games though. Father seems ever controlling and possibly is a money hungry jerk. Good luck to EJ anyway!

I personally don't think he's ready for the NBA, but here's hoping the Pacers can get him.....they need a REAL point guard.

Keep looking then. Eric Gordon had 115 turnovers this season and only 78 assists. He shot 33% from three point range. He has a lot of talent, but not as a point guard.

see ya Eric, the fact that you are going to NBA means I will never see you again. Or pay to watch you play either.

I am more concerned about his (and others like him) future. I mean, doesn't sound like he is going to be top pick, which might mean that he will sit the bench. that can't pay all that well. and then on top of that, what if it doesn't work out and he doesn't make all that money. we need to teach our kids to stay in school, if for nothing else than to have a degree to fall on.

I do not think going pro was the right decision in Eric's case. If he had stayed at least one more year, he could have developed his skills a little more and would have been a guaranteed top 5 pick. Even though I would have liked to see him come back, I wish him the best.

I think Eric is not ready, personally I feel kids should stay in school and complete their major and then pursue their dreams. I think if he feel he's ready,do it!! But if you get your degree first and all is said and done, after the NBA life, you can fall back on something and live comfortable.Go Eric your life is your life and live it to the fullest!!!

You called someone out about their spelling, but did you spell check your response?
