Re: Ric Bucher Reports - Gordon and Villanueva to the Pistons Is he really? Or did he just have one spectacular series against BOS and got hyped up? I've watched the Bulls mainly b/c of Ben Wallace and then b/c of Rose, and he's good, but he's wildly inconsistent. And was easily neutralized when we played them in the playoffs. I also remember our PG/SG lighting the Bulls up and them eventually trying to find somewhere to hide Gordon defensively. I agree on the age thing, but Rip is also in absolute great physical shape. How much and how fast would he start to decline? I don't know. The Bulls fans vary between praising him and wanting to trade him b/c of his turnover in the clutch. I feel like that's where i am. He's good. He can get better. But i'm not sold. Him having to guard the opposing SG's makes me nervous. edited to add; And why i'm contemplating this at almost 3:30 a.m. i don't know LOL.
