Eric Gordon finished with 33 points in his first college game, the
most ever by an Indiana player in his college debut. Gordon is 6 foot
4 and 215 lb freshman at Indiana University. He played High School
basketball at North Central High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. Eric
Gordon was voted Mr. Basketball in Indiana, named Indiana Gatorade
Player of the Year and Jordan Brand All-American.
Speaking of Jordan....It turns out that Eric Gordon played along side
MJ in the movie Space Jam. Gordon played Jordans' youngest son in Space Jam and then 10 years later dropped 43 points on MJs actual sons in a high school game. Below is an image from the movie, his high school photo and the credits.
UPDATE: We are not 100% sure if the Eric Gordon in the movie is the same Eric Gordon that plays for IU. This morning Sportscenter stated that he did play the part, which is the reason why we went ahead and did this post. We did some research and found sites that say it is him and some that say it is not him. The sites that say it is him state that Gordon was 8 in the movie and since the movie was made in 1996, that would now make the child around 18, the same age as Gordon.
