Has not even played a single game this season and has been plagued by injuries most of the time. Last season Gordon only played 9 games and averaged:
20.6ppg on 45% shooting with 2.8rpg & 3.4apg
Who would you take now?
OJ Mayo by a mile , anyone that thought differently looks foolish right now.
Gordon is made out of glass, and doesn't have much heart. You think OJ wasn't suffering coming off a bench in Memphis, but he manned up and owned it to the point where his value was completely destroyed ( look at his current contract)
Gordon who is a franchise player doesn't even want to suit up even when healthy because he plays for what he thinks is a horrid franchise
If were just going on talent/skillset they are super close. OJ is the better shooter, playmaker. Gordon is the better slasher and defender.
But when you look at the big picture not just talent its OJ Mayo by a mile
