Rivers? "Great no goal tending call on Kirk" ? Are we going to hear that to go with the gum job on Miller?

I always thought that Rivers was a true Chicagoan: gentleman and fair guy?

The best thing that could happen for the Bulls is for Gordon to have to sit out the game. He is out of control.

It would be great for the Bulls to have Gordon called for some flagrant foul.
The hell with Rondo, Pierce,etc. Gordon's about the only one that can stop the Bulls.

How you guys can't see how Gordon damages this team is beyond me.
You all must be beginners to this league.

Unfortunately, BG is only 5'11" and not 6'3".

Wonderful entertainer .... horrific team basketball player.

Actually best thing that could happen for the Bulls is if Gordon and Rondo get tangled up, duke it out, and both get ejected. Bulls nearly guaranteed to win!!

He's an entertainer.
I'll give him that.
Ben Gordon, when he's on, can be the most electrifying player in the league.
Vinnie Johnson was also like that.
Jamal Crawford, at times, is like that, too.

I like that idea, and I suggest VDN tell gordon to initate that very strategy...not that he would do it, but that would indeed be the best possible situation.

So your telling me that, w/out BG in the line up we would be in the playoffs?

He did come in handy due to Deng being off the court most of the season. But if you are talking post-Salmons trade, I am telling you the Bulls are a better team and have a better chance to win without Gordon. I didn;t directly answer your question as I think until Salmons got here they would have struggled to score too much.

I hope the following prediction of mine is wrong:

Bulls 108
Boston = 80 + Refs = 29 totals 109
Nada Idiot is still trying to figure out why he is friendless and clueless.

Yea, the Bulls would be doing so much better without his quick 12 points or so, clueless.

you just prove you don't understand, as does the halftime score. Gordon scoring points does not equal Bulls win. In fact, Gordon scoring EARLY is even worse. The off. flow never gets going and once he cools off the Bulls can't score. It is you, I am afraid, who are clueless. It is fun to watch BG go off. It is more fun to watch the Bulls win, particularly in the 7th game of a playoff series.
