On the court, Ben Gordon is known for his sweet shooting stroke, as he is the Bobcats fourth leading scorer. It’s his first season in Charlotte, so I caught up with the nine-year veteran to give Cats fans a closer look at the shooting guard from New York. Since spending his college years at UCONN, Gordon has showcased his talents in Chicago and Detroit before landing in Charlotte over the summer. In this edition of Cats off the Court, Gordon discusses which superhero he wishes he could be and his favorite piece of jewelry.
What was the name of your first pet?
Layla – she was a Boston Terrier and Beagle mix.
Who is your favorite actor?
Denzel Washington in Training Day… No, no, no, Manchurian Candidate.
If you could have one superhero ability what would it be?
I’d probably say Superman… Yeah, to fly.
What was your favorite subject in school?
What three things would you grab if your house were on fire?
One of my watches, my wallet and my car keys (laughs).
