Brooks, his speed and quickness would do Gordon in.

Aaron Brooks

Eric Gordon. He's just as good a 3pt shooter and he's got 60 pounds on him. Gordon can back him down or hit 3's. (worth 2's)

Gordon is bigger but I think Brooks would get him

I think Gordon's size would overwhelm Brooks... More so than Brooks speed over Gordon.

It's not like Gordon doesn't know how to attack the hoop. He's getting almost 5 FTAs per game. 60 pounds is so much bigger of a difference.

Eric Gordon in a close game but he wins just because of his size advantage.

Aaron Brooks because he's got the quickness and speed advantage

Brooks is a better player period. Is it keeps? If it is: Brooks If not: Still Brooks but closer.

Brooks is the better playyer but because or Gordons size he would dominate Brooks

15-14 Brooks in the lead by the smallest of margins. Gordon has SIXTY POUNDS ON HIM! He's also just as good a shooter. I think Gordon would have a field day when he's got the ball.

Bump. This is going to go down to the wire. If someone sees the first to vote #21 please post the results. I'll check this again in the morning. Next set of matchups will be posted around 6:30 pm tomorrow. Feel free to check the website for the result of all the matchups posted so far.

brooks = leading 3 point shooter. He will just take threes or fake a three and use his speed to attack the basket. Brooks wins 21-17
