    I should be able to CSI this stuff together beforehand by now. But after reading the Expectations and Acquisitions thread after I posted above I would like to say that BillLaimbeer piggybacking a Basketballs appreciation remark into its' own thread is easily one of the funniest reoccurring gags we have here.

    Always seemed to get hot once the Pistons were officially out of the playoffs. Ironic that it took a draft pick to get rid of him.

    I appreciate the fact that he was good enough to play for his national team (England), but chose not to.

    On January 9, 2010, Gordon scored the 10-millionth point in NBA history.............

    I looked up some quotes by Ben Gordon, so we can get a better sense of who he is as a person:

    I vote for "Ben Gordon is shorter than last year"

    Maybe that can explain it. He shrunk over one summer and it threw his shot off.

    Why does this thread exist? It is either disingenuous or sarcastic. Neither is good.

    Ben Gordon earnt a lot of money to the detriment of this team.

    He was a total professional, and personally I don't mind the guy. As a basketball contributor, rubbish.
