    Mike Taylor Outplaying Eric Gordon

    After 5 games Taylor has a much better start than Clipper teammate and former lottery pick Eric Gordon.

    Taylor 16 min/game 5.4 ppg
    Gordon 5 min/game 2.0 ppg

    Most surprising stat on Taylor 15 assists, 5 turnovers

    At least Mac wasn't one. If only Mike had his head screwed on straight when he was here.

    If I remember correctly, you couldn't stand Taylor when he was here.

    Re: Mike Taylor Outplaying Eric Gordon

    They've been saying that Taylor is one of the most tenacious defenders on that team...and I for one am pretty sure that's something we never saw while he was at ISU. The NBADL was definitely a benefit to Mike, and I'm stoked that he got to a place where things got put into perspective for him, and he was able to expand on his skillset. Look forward to seeing the team-play from him in the season to come!

    the Clippers are going to suck worse than soccer this year unfortunately. no offense to Mike T, its just how it is.

    even Willoughby was NBA material on a horrible bulls team a while back

    We saw some great defense from Taylor, but in spurts only. Kinda like Kobe in LA, when you are your teams main and really only guy that creates offense, you can't put out as much effort on defense.

    Re: Mike Taylor Outplaying Eric Gordon

    Remember that game at Minnesota when Taylor went off? He was so hot that game that he was sprinting down the court with the ball and he would just stop and nail a 3 pointer time after time. One of the best single game performances I've seen by a Cyclone.

    Actually yes, I was at ISU for the entire Marcus Fizer career. Taylor going off that day was some of the hottest shooting I've seen. Fizer usually did it off the glass. Apples and Oranges.

    Kobe Bryant has been 1st Team NBA defense 6 Times! 2nd Team 2 Times! I wouldn't use him as an example. Maybe LeBron James

    what are you smoking? Kobe is the man on defense, one of the toughest defenders in the NBA. He's gotten all kinds of awards for it.
