Default Will Aaron Gordon become an All-Star?

Also, who'd you compare him to? Randle is more Blake Griffin than Gordon is and the only comparison I can find for him is a more athletic Paul Millsap.

In my humble opinion,

Aaron Gordon is more of a Blake Griffin...explosive, talented player but isn't yet polished.

Julius Randle is more of an athletic Zach Randolph...crafty, left handed big man who can do it all. Big difference is Julius Randle is a much better athlete.

Blake Griffin is the second best PF in the league. Aaron Gordon isn't getting to that level.

Aaron Gordon reminds me of Shawn Marion.

Combo-forward, but hopefully in a good way. Supremely gifted athlete, tho Gordon a bit more focused on offense, while Marion obviously was an elite defender/utility player. I don't trust him as a prospect and I think he's an NBA 3.
