Eric Gordon proved he could carry the team and for a period of about 2 months he was actually our best player, not Blake Griffin. At the time he was putting up 24.3 ppg, 3 rpg, 4.5 apg which was right before his serious wrist injury. Please never again say Beasley is anywhere close to the level of player of Eric Gordon.

Love doesn't have the mentality to carry a team... or to be a franchise player. Mostly everyone including Wolves fans know this. Beasley is more likely to emerge as the leader of that team than Love.

Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon are both elite cornerstones. There isn't a single better inside/out combo in the NBA.
