It's EG, or Commissioner Gordon for pete's sake. EJ just doesn't sound original. Its too much like MJ to me.

Eric Gordon should just be referred to as Gordon IMO. EJ sounds corny, and a pathetic attempt at a nickname. I enjoy Lawler and his nicknames he gives the players, I think hes one of the best home announcers on TV. He's fair, and realistic when he broadcasts. However, I think just referring to him as Gordon or 10 spot is fine by me.

I'm not down with the L.A. lingo, you guys can call him whatever you want but to me he's either 10 spot, or the Commissioner, or just flat out Gordon.

Gordon to me, doesn't seem like a player that deserves nor wants a nickname. But wants to be known for his high bball IQ, his great play on the court and his ability to be a role model for under sized 2 guards in the league.

Love you all.

it's his real nickname since his full name is Eric Gordon Jr. he's been called EJ since he was younger. nobody here made it up nor did ralph and mike make it up so just relax man. the way he's playing, i don't care what anyone calls him. besides, they want it to sound like MJ as they started calling him "air gordon" since he's been dunking since the 6th grade. he was known for his vertical ability and his dunks aside from the fact that he's a great shooter. plus his number was 23 all throughout his younger career.

Sorry Taylor, EJ is short for his junior status. Might not sound the best but it's legit and it isn't a nickname...It's his initials.

Now to me, commissioner Gordon doesn't make any sense. The name is too comic bookish and is the name of a bit part in batman.

EJ is his shortened initials. IIRC, his dad calls him EJ.

^^^ totally agree with Clipper Joe.

Doesnt really make sense to try and say a nickname isnt valued when it not only makes sense but has been used someone's whole life.

Sorry if it confuses you Taylor but you need to get used to it because its not going anywhere.

That was my question when I first heard "EJ" in his rookie year. Now it's grown on me.

I don't care what anyone calls him. As I predicted this off-season, he's materializing into one of the top 2 gaurds in the league.

If EJ is going to be the "closer" and you want the ball in his hands at the end of games, he needs to improve his ball handling and passing. They are both atrocious. Part of our outside shooting problems is due to his passes. A shooter wants a pass they don't have to reach for, yet when EJ is out of control driving to the basket and then passes the ball out, it is never a good pass.

it'sWinningTime, He's #5 in scoring and #4 in assist among all 2 gaurds in the league. And he's only in his 3rd year. C'mon dude he's constantly improving all aspects of his game.

[quote="lacsmoove"]itI am only talking about 2 areas of his game. Are you saying you don't see those areas that need improvement before we can start winning some games?

No I'm not saying that he doesn't need to improve in those areas. But to deem them as atrocious is over the top. I believe he has,will and can continue to improve all aspects of his game. That's what great players do.

I prefaced the statement by saying "if you want him to be the closer and want the ball in his hands". If you want him to have that responsibility then he needs to improve. I am saying whoever you choose to be the "closer" will have a greater responsiblity to produce than others.

^^^ I'm with you. I'm not a big nickname guy. But if he really has been called EJ all his life, then I have no problem with other people using it.

Speaking of nicknames I am beginning a campaign for Al-Farouq to be Air Force. Initials AFA and his ability to drop bombs

I'm gonna keep calling him what his biological father calls him or maybe hobbit. lol

Plus, remember guys he was in that MJ movie(Space Jam) back in the day so the EJ/MJ relation is validated. wink

When he takes legally the last name Junior, he will be EJ, enough of that about EG, now, what are we to do about having no one that can shoot the ball into the net and out the bottom except a streaky EJ?
