Eric Gordon is taking this poll. BOOK IT!
I think Kevin Love has suprised everyone because many didn’t expect him to make the team.
voted gordon, but could have gone love. his skill set was exactly what this team needed and i have no idea why they thought they’d get it from chandler. then they let him play and it’s like, “oh, he rebounds.” duh.
Of course Kevin Love would make the team. He and Chandler were the only two left who can play the center. On the other hand Gordon was an outsider, since there was a point guard who had a great season and post-season named Rajon Rondo. I was really surprised when Rondo got out of the final team and I’m more surprised with Gordon’s play so far. Of course Kevin Love’s play is admirable too.
Gordon, then Love.
Gordon of course.
* Not Billups
I’ve seen Gordon play since the 7th/8th grade. Really Underrated, imo. Should be one of the top two guards in the NBA for awhile.
