    The offense sucks. Anytime someone other than Gordon dribbles from outside the 3 point line and takes a shot, it is a wasted possession, even if the ball accidentally goes in. Everyone else on the team needs to understand that Gordon and DJ are the primary offensive weapons, and the goal has to be to get the ball to them. After Gordon is playing in the NBA, Crawford will get to be the superstar. Not this year, though.
