VIDEO: Ben Gordon Faces Tough Scrimmage Competition
The folks over at Home Team Hoops have provided some intriguing video of a recent private scrimmage that occurred in the Central Florida area. Orlando Magic fans can get a look at recently signed 31-year-old Ben Gordon going up against 20-year-old Damarcus Croaker. The local product is entering his second season with the Texas Longhorns.
Take the lack of defense with a huge grain of salt since this contest obviously did not matter. At least Ben is drilling a plethora of 3-pointers at the tail end of the clip. Actually, the best part of the video isn’t even the two main guys it’s focused on. It’s all about Marcin Gortat being the ultimate hype man and camera director. However you interpret the clip, no one should expect Gordon to be much of a defensive beast this season.
