After Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker are off the NBA draft board next summer, there will be some teams who receive an excellent consolation prize in power forward Aaron Gordon. Gordon has been compared to Blake Griffin for his highlight reel dunks. Some analysts have even said Gordon is more advanced than Griffin was at the same age but I will have to see more game tape before I’m buying that. Sometimes Griffin’s ball handling and passing get underrated and they are skills that he continues to work on.

Gordon will be a high flyer in the NBA, but he will have to learn the fundamentals to be truly successful. It will be fascinating to watch his development as a player and it should be fun to watch him and Griffin take the court together one day. If Griffin sees an alter ego, then we will just have to hope and pray that they do not try to kill each other.

Gordon should be a special player next season and he seems like a West coast guy through and through so it will be interesting to see if he gets drafted by a West coast team. That is still up in the air, but you never know what can happen in the future. Gordon will be in many SportsCenter highlights in the future, and we can all look forward to his exploits in the future.
