Random YouTube vid: Eric Gordon owns some dude

Here’s a confession: I usually wouldn’t promote a high school kid getting posterized. However, since it’s our boy Eric Gordon doing the posterization (is that a word?), I’m going to make an exception.

A couple of things about the following video, which many of you have probably already viewed. This was Gordon’s second to last high school game, the Class 4A Semi-State at Southport High School. The opponent was Bloomington South and well, it was a typical game for Mr. Gordon: he scored a lot of points, his team won and oh yea, he dunked on a few people.

Below is video evidence of that last point. You will notice that he was called for a charge on the play, but I think the referee felt sorry for Bloomington South. At this point, the game was getting out of hand. The defender may have had his feet set, but when someone jumps over you, how can you call a charge? My guess is that the victim is still having nightmares over this particular incident. Hopefully he’ll receive royalties for having his picture taken.

  • i was at this game. there was an old grandma next to me from winchester (a team from the previous game) who had decided to stay to watch ej. she was very excited and had heard a lot about him. when we saw ej rip off a few very deep 3s, she was literally giggling with excitement. it was just an incredible display he put on. at the point in the game that this dunk happened, everyone was getting a little bored. nothing had happened in quite a while, as btown south had been denying ej the ball. when he got the ball for the first time in forever, he just exploded. the place erupted. the old grandma next to me started crying. it was honestly one of the coolest things that i have ever seen.

    I was there too. I graduated from Providence this past year, and we played Winchester before EJ’s game. Although we lost, I loved watching EJ play. He is unbelievable! Can’t wait for Thursday night.
