but his attitude is getting bigger as his game goes down... so that balances it out right?
I'll never grow tired of saying this. Start TMac and Gordon and bring Stuckey & Rip off the bench. TMac/Gordon/Prince/Monroe/Wallace has shown that they're a decent starting unit. Our front court quality takes a dump when we go to the bench. However, you'd have a solid back court with Stuckey & Rip who have size and also defend well. Daye's your outside shooter, Stuckey's your slasher and Rip's your mid-range shooter. You've got a versatile set of decent wing players to balance out the weak front court. Put Maxiell in there for defense and you may even avoid digging yourself a huge hole.

Following Terrico White, Steve Nash, and Jalen Rose (and LA Dre) on Twitter now. Terrico Tweeted on February 1 that he was almost back to 100%.
He needs to finish the season strong to pass Blake in the ROY race.
Gordon has done nothing since coming here for the $...If Rip puts the diva status aside? he is a better player straight up. But if he is still diva, theyre equal. BG has been living off his chicago achievements as much or more so than rip has lived off his ring. Ill take the ring , cause at least he can do it when he decides to.
I'm on the same boat with you copper. Gordon potentially is better for the Pistons in the long run, but so far he has failed to surpass Rip.
We need to keep White inactive until next year so he can have a better shot at ROY with a year of experience under his belt. That's the only reason why Griffin is in the lead for ROY. He's a second year pro.
I'm with you Walter. I don't think we have seen the best of Gordon in a Pistons uniform, mainly because this is the mess of the current Detroit Pistons. With a consistent rotation, consistent minutes, and a solid supporting cast, Gordon could thrive.

"Kuester also said that guard Richard Hamilton will play"
Starting lineup: Stuckey/Gordon/Daye/Wilcox/Monroe Hmmm....
Bucks start 7-0. Our best offensive plays so far was a horrible forced shot by Gordon as time expired and Stuckey doing his collider thing.
..1:42 left in the first qtr ..Pistons down 25-18....Enter Will Bynum and the immortal Rip Hamilton and he hits a tech shot
3 guard lineup not working so far. Bynum trying to do it all....4 fouls in 7 minutes. Rip shooting 3-8 in 9 mins. , Gordon 1-4 in 11 mins....but Stuckey showed up All of the Bucks bigs MIA
After trailing by 9, the Pistons battle back to trail 51-50 at the half. Rip gets back in the lineup with 7 pts, 3 assists and 2 steals. Stuckey is the hot Piston with 16 pts, on 6-8 shooting and he also has 4 assists, & 3 turnovers. With Bugut, Gooden, Ilyasova and Mbah a Moute out the Pistons need to take advantage of the short handed Bucks and seize control in the 3rd and ride it to victory.
We lost by 2 points. Why ?
Pistons end third qtr on a nice run up 75-72. But to much one-on-one by Bynum, Rip and Stuckey allows the Bucks to open the qtr on a 8-0 run with Keyon Dooling victimizing both Bynum and Stuckey for 5 quick points and the Pistons who only scored 6 pts in the first 8 mins of the qtr never caught up. 4 of those six points were by JMax. The Pistons missed bunnies, jumpers, put backs, free throws, three pointers and nearly still beat the inept short handed Bucs with only 15 pts in the 4th....but nope with the Pistons down 90-88 and 30 seconds left, they just could not get that tying or winning hoop, with Bynum getting blocked at the hoop, and then blocked on a three pt play and then Daye missing the possible go ahead three point shot with about 9 seconds left in the game and then a prayer with 2 seconds that still would have had the Pistons come up one pt short. Bottom line>>>>Rip Hamilton killed us in the 4th. ... 4-17 overall and at least six missed shots in a row during catchup time. He was blocked 3 times and Bynum as indicated above was blocked twice. The Bucks were shorthanded and had at least one player (earl Barron ) on 10 day contract grabbing 9 boards and two of other subs, Brockman and Sanders grabbing 8 [STRIKE]bricks[/STRIKE] boards a piece to thwart any Piston comeback win.
