Meet your new star, New Orleans.
With the Hornets down a point with 14.7 seconds left in their opener against the Suns, the ball was in Eric Gordon's hands. It used to be in Chris Paul's at this moment, with a good chance it was going to go to David West at the top of the key.
Instead, it was a new look for New Orleans with Gordon left to make it happen on his own. Isolated at the top of the key and boom, he drilled a 20-footer to win one for his new team. Now you can see why the Clippers were so reluctant to give him up. And why David Stern and the league wanted him so badly.
