Both Rose and Gordon have the guts to take that last shot and out of the entire team they are the only ones that should even enter the argument because they automatically turn their games up in the 4th. For me I'd like to see both of them remain options with Ben being run through screens or at the 3pt line and Rose handling the ball as distributor or scorer as the need arises. As long as there is a lot of movement among our players that lost shot will be much easier for anyone taking it. Isolation plays just don't seem to work well for us no matter who is doing them.

The list of people who SHOULD NOT take that shot from the is easy to make -- everyone else. And top of the list is Deng. The most invisible, least clutch in the 4th that I've ever seen among people of his caliber. You'd think a guy of his position in the Bulls team would request a play drawn up for him and demand the ball and attack all through the 4th. He just seems like he doesn't want the ball at all with his triple shot fakes and layups that can't crest the rim.

We should do a success rate on Gordon's rookie year compared to Rose rookie season.
Dont forget the Bulls went to the playoffs for the first time in 7 years in BG rookie year & mostly had some of the same players Rose has now.

Gordon with his range and better fr throw percentage is the obvious better choice. Rose is a great playmaker, but lacks the range to have the ball in his hands at the end.
