On Friday, Gordon and Marble got a chance to be an inspiration to kids by showing what it takes to excel in sports and live a healthy lifestyle. They joined Magic Community Ambassadors Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw and other volunteers in a Magic FIT Fun Day at Greenwood Lakes Middle School in Lake Mary. The event was a reward for these students who participated and won the Magic FIT 8 week challenge, which promotes health and wellness and helps youth understand the importance of healthy food choices and fitness exercises. “We are motivating kids to get active,” Gordon said. “When you have a healthy body, generally you have a healthy life. That’s one of the top priorities for us.” NBA.com

Usually quiet and totally under control, Gordon admitted on Monday that he let his emotions get the best of him on Saturday when he was ejected for vehemently arguing a non-call. Television replays showed Dallas guard Monta Ellis clearly whacking Gordon across both arms as he drove into the lane, causing the shooting guard to lose the ball. When there was no whistle, Gordon stormed in the direction of referee Kane Fitzgerald and used language strong enough to get himself ejected after just one technical foul. ``I was just frustrated – not just from that foul, but also how the game was going,’’ said Gordon, referring to the Magic falling behind by as much as 27 points before mounting a huge second-half rally. ``I definitely overreacted and I probably owe that ref an apology. That wasn’t like me and it was out of frustration.’’ NBA.com

The Magic's signing of guard Ben Gordon as a free agent last summer to a two-year $8-million contract raised some eyebrows and was criticized in certain circles. But Gordon feels he has proved his doubters wrong and recaptured his game after spending two lackluster seasons with the Charlotte Hornets. "My game is back," Gordon said Monday. "My game is sharp. I'm being efficient and doing what I wanted to accomplish. They brought me in to bring a spark off the bench, and I've tried to keep my end of the deal." Orlando Sentinel

Things were so awkward and uncomfortable in Charlotte that Gordon agreed to be waived late last season by the then-Bobcats. With the Gordon’s new team, the Magic (2-0), heading back to Charlotte for Monday’s exhibition game, the 31-year-okld shooting guard is delighted have a clean slate in Orlando. ``(The struggles in Charlotte) bothered me a lot while I was there. Obviously, I was happy to be out of that situation,’’ Gordon said. ``It’s behind me now. It’s just one of those things that happens and you try to learn from it and I’m just moving on.’’ NBA.com
