However you feel about the Gordon pick, the decision -- coupled with Thornton's emergence as a legitimate piece of the future -- marks a clear change in  philosophy for the organization.  The offense appears as it will originate much more frequently on the perimeter.  This pick is more than just about getting someone who can spread the floor.  It situates Gordon and Thornton on the wings going forward.  We can debate the value of this both functionally and aesthetically -- and whether these two guys are efficient enough to lead a winning team -- but it's clear the Clippers will have as different an offensive look next season as they've had in a long time.
