5 Seconds Left with the class of 2008

There's 5 seconds left, and you're down by one. Which of these 2008 draftees would you want to have the ball?

O.J. Mayo
Eric Gordon
Brook Lopez

I know there are other guys (Beasley, Rose, Westbrook), but I wanted to make this more of a challenge.

If I wanted a player to

If I wanted a player to create off the dribble, I'm going with Mayo... Based on who you gave me to choose from. I'd run a play for EJ in a catch and shoot/dribble drive situation, but Mayo would be better creating a shot for himself or others.

I didn't forget about

I didn't forget about Anthony Randolph, I just didn't mention him. This is based on last year's production, not next year's predictions. He's definitely a guy to watch out for, though.

Hmmmm 5 seconds? O.J. Mayo

Hmmmm 5 seconds? O.J. Mayo because he is better creating and finishing at the rim or shoooting over people.

mayo

in those situations, ball handling and ability to hit tough shots are the most important things, and Mayo has those skills over Brook and Gordon.

I expected alot of people to debate over O.J. or Gordon. I guess I was wrong.

Hands down Mayo

I'm a huge Mayo fan and think he will maybe challenge Rose and Beasley for best player of this class. I just wish he would be switched to Point guard. He was a point in high school and was the number 1 recruit. Anyways back to the question it has to be Mayo, superior ball handler, passer, and just as good of a shooter as Gordon in my opinion, he just didnt get as many open looks as Gordon did last year

If it's 3 secs to go, I go

If it's 3 secs to go, I go for Gordon, he is a better catch and shoot player with a great jumpshot, I think he is a better clutch player than Mayo too
Though Mayo is better all around

OJ Mayo

I say OJ he looks like the type of clutch player that wants to hit those types of shots I dont remember if he hit any game winners last year but I remember watching a game where he went off in the 4th quater and got them back in the game I also think they won that game.
