This is less an article and more a desire to get feedback on an observation from fans far wiser than me. I've been noticing more and more recently that Gordon has a really difficult time when a the defending big man shows on a pick and roll. Its not uncommon that despite exerting a lot of energy Gordon ends up 4 feet outside the 3 point line with no real progress made. (This is true even when the defending big man is a slowish player like Dirk Nowitzki) Occasionally he is able to turn the corner, but his defender has generally recovered at this point and he is left with a contested shot or difficult lay up.
Does anybody else feel its about time Hayward learns to split that double team? I think it would force the showing big man to play a little more honestly and open up a few more possibilities on the pick and roll.
