Aaron Gordon Astounds with Dribbling & Pass Skills at Pro Am
Orlando Magic rookie forward Aaron Gordon, following his Summer League performance, recently returned to the Bay Area to participate in the San Francisco Pro Am. The 18-year-old San Jose, California native put on quite a spectacle of phenomenal dribbling and passing skills that I’m sure will have Magic fans craving to see at some point in the near future. Credit to ballislife for the clip.
I could swear I was watching the offspring of Jason Williams going ‘White Chocolate’ mode on us or Rafer Alston pulling off a ‘Skip To My Lou’. Very impressive for a 6′ 9″ guy to pull off. You can see why Aaron and the Magic coaching staff believes Gordon can be a small forward. He has the handles for it, that’s for certain. All about having that confidence in himself during NBA contests. There are some dunks in there that he makes look way too easy. Get excited for some youth infusion, Orlando.
Apparently in the game where that highlight clip comes from, Aaron notched a triple-double. Exhibition or not, that’s great.
Aaron Gordon’s line tonight at Kezar Pavilion for the Pro-Am League: 28 pts, 18 reb, 11 assists. Triple Double. highlights at 11pm on KPIX
