National Anthem Makes Impression On Eric Gordon
--Listening to song while wearing a gold medal around his neck makes Clippers star appreciative of what he represents--

The moment likely will have a lasting impact for Eric Gordon.
On Sunday, instead of hearing the national anthem play before a game, he heard it while wearing "USA" on his uniform with a gold medal hanging around his neck.
"It makes you more appreciative of your country and what you really represent," Gordon said Tuesday after returning from Turkey, where he helped the U.S. win the FIBA world basketball championship for the first time since 1994.
