I think the Bulls have to resign Ben Gordon if they want to be competitive in the east this year. The only reliable scorer in the backcourt is BG. Rose was not a real scorer in college and had a mediocre summer …which is expected for a rookie. I think Rose will eventually pan out, but the Bulls can’t wait three years. If the Bulls don’t sign Gordon, then they put an unreasonable amount of pressure on a front court that has not become consistent yet. Defenders will not have to play honest and will able to double down more. Hughes is larger and can defend larger two guards, but Ben if given the minutes could probably average 25 points a game and already is the leading scorer. BG has also won everywhere he has played and has a winner’s mentality. I anyone has played or coached, you know you can’t teach that. In addition, the main thing is he scores in the fourth quarter in bunches and most of the players in the league cannot do that. Everyone scores in the first three quarters, but when the lights shine the brightest and the pressure is on, who do you want to take the last shot in Chicago…Ben Gordon. Anyone who says otherwise is just not being honest. Ben is probably one of the top ten fourth quarter’s players in the league.
He also is model citizen according to the Slam Magazine article. He has a fundraiser that he is doing on August 15 at The Homefield Bowling Lanes, 938 Saw Mill River Road, Yonkers, NY. You can go to for additional information. You can also e-mail for
more information. The papers in New York say Elton Brand will be attend and there are more confirmations to come.
