I hate creating "New Threads" but I had to get this out here. Been reading too much hate on my boy Ben Gordon, I wanted to put Ben Geezy into perspective: There are only 8 Sg's in the league who averaged over 20ppg last year. For the folks who don't like Ben, look at his stats and compare them to the other SG's and also compare their salaries that they will earn this upcoming season: Wade ($15.8M) / 30.2ppg / FG% 49.1 / 3FG% 31.7 / FT% 76.5 Bryant ( $23M) / 26.8ppg / FG% 46.7 / 3FG% 35.1 / FT% 85.6 K Mart($10.2M) / 24.6ppg / FG% 42.0 / 3FG% 41.5% / FT% 86.7 Roy ($3.9M) / 22.6ppg / FG% 48.0 / 3FG% 37.7 / FT% 82.4 JoeJo ($15M) / 21.4ppg / FG% 43.7% / 3FG% 36.0 / FT% 82.6 Redd ($17M) / 21.2ppg / FG% 45.5 / 3FG% 36.6 / FT% 81.4 Vince C. ($16M) / 20.8 / FG% 43.7 / 3FG% 38.5 / FT% 81.7 Gordon ($9M) / 20.7ppg / FG% 45.5 / 3FG% 41.0 / FT% 86.4 Ben is the lowest paid person on this list, except for Roy who's playing under his rookie contract. Look folks young SG's, who can drop 20+ppg, shoot it straight from the floor, the arc, and the stripe; who's best days are still in front of them, are not easy to come by. When they do you can't sit on your hands because you just happen to have 31 yr-old SG who's best days are behind him on your roster. We got a really good young SG, for a very good price and we are a better team as a result.
