maybe he just dumb and can't pass the memory test. but doesn't have a concussion.

 

he's literally not even trying. Doctor's must be playing against AG in fantasy playoffs. 

 

Gordon, 22, admitted frustration on Friday, saying that he has been symptom free for the last week, but he has been unable to gain clearance from the NBA-appointed physician after failing to pass a memorization and recognition test.

``I am feeling a little more comfortable with (the test) day after day, but I want to be out there playing with my team so bad and helping us get wins that I’m overlooking the test sometimes and I can’t do that,’’ Gordon said. ``I’ve got to put all of my focus on that test and complete it.’’

 

It’s the third straight game that the Magic hoped to have Gordon – their leading scorer at 18.3 points per game – only to have the NBA’s doctors refuse to clear him from the concussion protocol. Magic head coach Frank Vogel, who has been profusely praiseworthy of the league’s dealings with head injuries, admitted that the team is eager to get one of their best players back on the floor now that he is symptom free.

``He’s symptom free and wants to play and we’re frustrated because we want him to play,’’ Vogel said. ``We reached out to the league’s specialist on the concussion protocol to see if there’s some way … we’re just trying to see if it’s just that one thing that is holding him back and if there’s any way to get him back onto the court with the league’s permission.

``The protocol is in place for a reason, but he really wants to play, and we really want him to play, so we’re looking at everything,’’ Vogel continued. ``He just needs to check all of the boxes of what’s required to exit the protocol. … He’s not the first guy to be in the protocol and be symptom free and it takes a longer time.’’

Gordon, who has two 40-point games and three other 30-point efforts this season, jokingly said that the emphasis that he put on the ``baseline test’’ taken back in October could be working against him now.

``I always try to do everything to the best of my abilities and I got a good score on the baseline test and that’s making it a little more difficult to recreate it,’’ he said with a chuckle.

I think he's trying, but like you said he's just not one of the sharpest tools in the shed. He joked he did too well on his baseline test. Probably had to guess on a lot of questions and got lucky(or unlucky)
