West Squad Will Win the Jordan Brand Classic
Yesterday, Nike announced the rosters for the Jordan Brand Classic on April 13th. The game will be played at the new billion dollar Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Brooklyn is fittingly Jordan’s birthplace. Also, happy upcoming 50th birthday to the greatest basketball player of all time.
The West squad will end up winning the Jordan Classic, because of the combination of Jabari Parker, Andrew Harrison, and Aaron Gordon. Gordon’s game has been compared to Blake Griffin’s, but Gordon is much more polished at this point of his career than Griffin was.
Parker will have a very solid game along the lines of 21 points and 11 rebounds in the victory.
The East squad will put up a great fight, but one of their best players, Julius Randle, is still working his way back from injury and may not be at top form. I also think Aaron Harrison will struggle without his twin brother to pass the ball to. The twins are on opposite sides in this game, but they won’t have that problem next year in Lexington. (Much to John Calipari’s delight.)
Andrew Wiggins, who recently scored 57 points in a game, will keep the East in the game, but the West will prevail in the end behind the efficient play of Parker and Gordon. I won’t be surprised if Wiggins scores 40 points in the game, but I will be if the East ends up winning.
