Arizona’s Aaron Gordon is in his first day of try outs to make the USA National Team for the under-19 division.
During tryouts, he threw down a pretty mean dunk.
Then he was asked about above dunk and his comparisons to Clippers’ star, and former Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin.(Gordon is 6-foot-8 while Griffin is 6-foot-10 and both are obviously athletic.)
Here’s what he said, per the Sporting News:
Gordon answers, “I think, I can play point guard and he can’t.”
“He’s an incredible player; he’s the No. 1 pick,” Gordon said. “I can’t be too mad if people are comparing me to a No. 1 pick. But I can play point guard.”
Yeah. All that came from a kid who hasn’t played an official second of collegiate ball.
