I don't know why I keep reading on here that Ben Gordon led a revolt in Detroit when he wasn't one of the five players (Rip Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Tracy McGrady, Chris Wilcox, & Ben Wallace) that boycotted the coach.
Just saying ,, If we turn Gordon for any kind of asset is just another hudge win for Cho. and our team. At worst Maggs and the pick is a win even if he sits on the bench the rest of his contract.

When we got Gordon I as hoping we could rejuvenate his career. Maybe showcase him and trade him for something, but if he played well and we kept him that would be alright too.
When Gerald Henderson got injured and Dunlap started Jeff Taylor I thought to myself we are missing a huge chance to showcase Ben Gordon. What would have been the harm in showing a little confidence in the guy. Most players are going to play better when a coach shows confidence in them. It had to be insulting to start a rookie instead.
If he does get traded it will be interesting to see what Gordon has to say about his time here.
If it's minutes (which I feel pretty sure it is) who on here actually wants Gordon to see more minutes on the court?
Up to me he'd be a DNP-CD every game.

BG just tweeted this:

Also, he was silent on twitter for a long while after he got traded here. His profile still referenced Detroit for that time. Recently he has picked up with the tweeting and it has mostly been motivational sayings and pictures of him working out. Hmmm.
so based off what we know...he's calling himself a fool?
Gordon also has some twitter post about "never give anything less than your best."
