Aaron Addison Gordon is an American The legend of Aaron Gordon shirt professional basketball player for the Orlando Magic of the National Basketball Association. The Orlando Magic is an incredibly young team, and as young teams tend to grow into greater and more experienced teams there aren’t many people that are too worried about the Magic gaining some influence in the league in the next 2-3 years. They aren’t making moves during free agency at this time that will shoot them into championship contention but rather working towards being that type of team down the road. Technically I don’t consider anyone on the Magic, Raptors, Suns or Nuggets franchise players…mainly for the simple fact that those teams tend to be breeding grounds of young talent who eventually leave for bigger and better things (big market teams).
That being said, even if I didn’t have that bias, technically The legend of Aaron Gordon shirt Aaron Gordon isn’t a franchise player…yet. Nikola Vučević is. Nikola has been a great player for a little while now and he’s pretty consistent. He’s part of that staple of new foreign big men who have the height and skills to be a force (see; Nikola Jokić, Jusuf Nurkić, Kristaps Porzingis, etc. However, I say yet because Aaron Gordon has all the tools to become a franchise player. If Blake Griffin can be on, Aaron can be too, especially since Aaron has (my opinion) a potentially higher ceiling than Blake Griffin. He’s a 6′8/6′9 forward who can play either SF or PF and has recently upped his 3 point shooting ability. Mix that with the fact that he can dunk just as well as Blake and the fact that he’s still 22. Most importantly, he actually cares about getting better and is willing to change his game to do so.
