Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon, Los Angeles Clippers — Okay, so Blake’s emergence last year wasn’t exactly subtle; dude took the NBA by storm. What should really excite Clippers (and NBA) fans is the inevitable coming-out party for Griffin’s running mate, Eric Gordon. Still only 22, the 2-guard from Indiana is already one of the most well-rounded scorers in the league, averaging a career-high 22.3 PPG last season. A highlight-reel-in-waiting, Gordon and Blake should lead L.A.’s other team to the playoffs this year. You know, unless something particularly Clipper-ish happens.
