Thread: OT-Is Aaron Gordon the best CCS bball player ever?

    Basketball OT-Is Aaron Gordon the best CCS bball player ever?

    Certainly-he is in the modern era. Archbishop Mitty crushed La Costa Canyon-Carlsbad, 78-57, for its second consecutive state championship. Junior Aaron Gordon (6'7") toyed with the SoCal entry with 33 points & 20 rebounds. Unlike his older brother, Drew Gordon, Aaron is leading his team to state championships. Drew led Mitty to championship appearances but the Monarchs came up short on both occasions.

    dream scenario: if Cal could land the super talent in its own backyard, it could rule the Pac 12 for the forseeable future. Jabari Bird (6'5") & Aaron Gordon (6'7") are obviously the best players in the NCS & CCS, respectively.

    Washington HC, Lorenzo Romar, was sitting in the front row for both players games at the state championships. Arizona is in play for this talented duo, too, according to the tv commentators. Zero mention of Cal?

    Where's Cal coach, Montgomery? Sacto is not that far from Berkeley? Why is he not a high profile presence for the Bears? I think Cal has a tiny chance with Bird but Romar successfully recruited Derek Simmons from Salesian two years ago.

    As the lesson of the Wizard of Oz taught us at an early age: "if you ever go looking for your heart's desire, never look any farther than your own backyard. If it wasn't there in the first place, it probably wasn't worth looking for anyway..."

    It will kill me if we have to watch Gordon & Bird dominate the conference for another school for 3 years or so before they turn pro. GO BEARS!

    They might not end up playing at the same school. We have pretty much no chance with Gordon, but we actually have a very good shot with Bird.

    hate to burst anyone's bubble

    Gordon will not be attending Cal, for the usual reason that local AAU players spurn Cal, i.e. players that view college as a stepping stone to the next level. They will choose the path of least resistance academically combined with the highest level of exposure. That is it.

    Gordon is considering Stanford. His sister plays hoops at Harvard. He's got grades.

    Don't know about Gordon

    But '71, why are so down on Cal not recruiting Bird? Its more likely than not he goes to Cal.

    Of course he was there. He knows how important a recruit Bird is.

    The big question for me is, how many spots will we have available for 2013 and what positions will be filled? With Rorie committing for 2014, I'd guess PG isn't a priority.

    Yup - he was there as were Crabbe & Solo who wanted to watch their alma mater... A friend who posts here spoke to MM at the game. I also saw MM at a game I attended 2 years ago (O'Dowd vs. Castro Valley) when we were recruiting both Ashley and Anderson. The notion on this board of what MM does and doesn't do in player recruiting is mind blowing.

    Basketball I was relaying what the tv announcers stated...

    I watched both games. Dana Altman, Oregon's HC, was at the Mitty's boys game in pursuit of A. Gordon, too. Both Gordon boys are solid student atheletes. Drew attended UCLA, remember? He told me that he considered Cal. Drew played on the Oakland Soldiers with my nephew. GO BEARS!

    Baffles me how Howland sided with Reeves Nelson over Drew Gordon and manages to keep his job.

    Apparently Gordon did some other stuff that warranted Howland's distaste for him

    Apparently Gordon committed the cardinal sin of questioning Howland regarding what the Bruins were doing on the court.
