Lpgrl, Gordon was the best player available in free agency--by far. Who in the league can get their shot in the teeth of the playoffs? Le Bron, Wade, Kobe, maybe Pierce, Garnett, nobody on Orlando, Paul (sort of), Yao, Tracy Mac, maybe Carmelo, sometimes Dirk, Durant, when the time comes, maybe Roy. I mean, not that many. Gordon is one of those. He is a number 3 pick that plays like one on the offensive end. These type of players are just not available. Chicago blew it. They had a real piece and didn't understand it. Joe pounces on these type of situations historically. I mean look at the Pistons. Rip and Billips and Sheed in their prime could create damage offensively. But none of them now, can get their own shot. Gordon can also work OFF the ball. People have in the past gotten excited about Affalo and some of our youth. They are all low draft picks and had limited skill sets as they entered the NBA. You cannot build a top team with low draft picks. It has never been done.
