Honestly, I think Eric Gordon was.

NBA ready - best rookie behind Rose, Mayo imo.

Roy is a stud. Out of all the floor leaders out there he is the one I would want most. Great decision maker and makes shots in the clutch. Players feed of him and he makes the Trailblazers dangerous.

To be honest.. I think Roy is overrated anyway.
Media hypes him up way more then what he is, his number's aren't 'that' great.

Numbers don't makea great player

Zach Randolph is a great player.

He kinda had the same situation Gasol did in Memphis. The team and style around him wasn't a fit.

Zach is fitting much better in the Dunleavy "pound it to Elton Brand- I mean whatever big guy we have instead of him now" strategies.

I like Gordon mostly because of his defense. I always knew he could score. The best rookie this year is probably Mayo, and Westbrook is impressing me even though I loved watching him in college.
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

ok i know zach is a clipper or whatever but do not compare him to gasol

gasol is a hardworking guy who is considered a top 5 big man in the world

zach is lazy, fat, and has a me-first attitude who has all the talent yet none of the mental side of the game

I think he is saying bringing over Randp\olph for what they gave up could give the Clippers a Gasol-esque return in terms of value. I sort of agree with him... Though remember, Zack hasn't fit in on two systems so it will be interesting to see what happens with the Clippers. He was dominating opponents though while fitting in to the system before everyone - including him - started getting injured.

Clippers have a bright future though.

randolph has played in that type of system in portland and succeeded statistically which he has now but in terms of attitude and work ethic he never has had good either and will never have good either

as a 3rd or 4th guy hes fine but he still can't pass out of the post effectively and still has a one track mind and thats offense defense never even crosses his mind

Zach Randolph is a great player.

I guess the word "great" is thrown around loosely in Clipperland.

Sorry, but Zach Randolph is far from a great player... Comparing him to Pau Gasol is a grave insult to humanity...

Zach Randolph is a great offensive player, got the jumper and inside game. Defense is another story though...
