    I always had the feeling that the Bulls wanted Gordon to leave.

    He never really fit in there. I don't know if it was due to his poor defense or lack of size. Especially when Rose was drafted.

    Never could stay in the starting lineup and it's crazy to pay a guy 12mil/yr to come off the bench.

    Totally disagree. He fit perfectly in Chicago because he could come off the bench and dominate.
    They wanted him to leave at his current price. I think they would have kept him if it were in the 9 mil neighborhood. They've never replaced him. He could be a star.......

    So these 2 share the same birthday?

    I kept waiting for the clip where Big Ben was fighting with the DJ.

    Not after they got Rose. They also though he was holding up his progress for some reason. Maybe because they have similar games.

    Rose and Gordon's plays are similar in the sense that they both involve a basketball.
