This looks like Aaron Gordon, the former Arizona star, taking a nap on the red line in Boston. Interesting sartorial selection – puke green pants, no socks, and apparently sneakers. It’s unclear if Gordon had a workout with the Celtics, or if he was ballin’ at Harvard, perhaps visiting his sister, who just graduated from there.
Gordon is a tantalizing prospect in June’s NBA draft – long, defensive-minded, dripping with potential – but it’s unclear where teams will rank him compared to the other strong power forwards in the draft, Indiana’s Noah Vonleh and Kentucky’s Julius Randle. He’d be the most coveted of the trio if I were GM, which is why I had him 5th in my last mock draft.
Could Gordon turn into Blake Griffin in four years once he develops an offensive game? He only turns 19 in September. [Photo via Reddit]
