    Default Ben Gordon takes a shot at Ben Wallace?

    Ouch. Yes, Wallace has sucked this year, but this is just mean-spirited....

    http://www.nwherald.com/articles/200...4079957506.txt

    Asked if he thought he was the best player on the team, Gordon said, “I think I am.” Asked then if he thought he should be paid like the best, Gordon said, “What do you think?”

    “It doesn’t make sense,” Gordon said. “If the worst guy on the team is making more than the best guy on the team, does that make sense?”

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    How do we know its Wallace is he the only one making more than Gordon on the Bulls? I'm not all the familiar with their salaries so I'm not sure.

    Your choices are Ben Wallace and Kirk Hinrich, and one guy has struggled a lot more than the other, while making a lot more..

    Only Big Ben, Hinrich and Nocioni.

    Kirk aint been playing great either, but he also isn't making three times as much as Lil Ben.

    Well then that clears it up quite a bit. Either way I can't believe Gordon honestly believes hes the best player on the Bulls. I think Deng and Hinrich will both have a thing or two to say about that.

    he's averaging 4 points, 4 rebounds and is shooting %36 from the floor. It's Ben.

    Deng is undisputedly better than Gordon, IMO, but the important part is him launching Ben Wallace under the bus with reckless abandon.

    Also, this shows how much Gordon has changed at least since he was drafted. He was a very humble person when they did a piece on him on draft night.

    Not bad numbers if he is only averaging 2 minutes playing time per game.

    Sounds like Gordon is trying to get shipped out.

    I can't imagine the Paxton, Skiles, any of the young core or Wallace being OK with what he said.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    I love these kinds of things.....when they happen to other teams. Hey, does anyone remember last offseason when Ben Wallace was considered a cornerstone of a contending team? Now, the Bulls are still a contender but Ben has little to do with that.

    ****ing Ben ****ing Wallace. Good for nothing Fantasy player. I finally give the guy a chance on my fantasy team and he ****s me.

    I'm almost sure its the entire reason why he is playing that way. Just to screw Gyrons fantasy stats.

    I bet he's laughing his *** off while collecting that big fat paycheck and looking at Gyron's Sports.ws stats......

    Fat contracts at times promote laziness... you can find many examples throughout history. Thats where and why the term "he's in a contract year" comes from. A guy has to perform.

    It probably is Wallace he's talking about, but you can add Joe Smith at 5.2M as another Bulls player making more than Gordon...

    The first thing I thought of when I read this was how big of an ego Gordon has to boil everyone down on their team to a $$$ to determine who is the best player on the team.

    This, coupled with his recent comments about Deng and who should get more $$$, tells me volumes about his personality. I know the guy wants to get paid....but how much of a jerk do you have to be to call Ben Wallace out and refer to him as the "worst player on the team".

    I may not like Ben Wallace cuz of his role in the Brawl...but I never got the impression that he wasn't a hard worker, wasn't a team player or even that he wouldn't play through an injury.

    See...that is where you went wrong. Ever since the brawl...I vowed...out of sheer principle....to not draft ANY Pistons player ever again in any of my Fantasy BBAll teams.... which includes Ben Wallace....even after he went to the Bulls.

    Chicago's off to a 0-3 start which probably has something to do with Gordon's popping off. He just made things worse though.

    I would find it funny since Chicago's one of the teams we have to beat out, but since we've been down that route really, really, recently, I feel for Chicago fans. Not much mind you, but I can see Grace slapping her forehead in frustration.

    I was going to go into this big long post pointing out all you're points that are off the mark, but since none of you follow the Bulls I decided not to bother.

    Now, if you want to know my opinion I'll tell you. If the reason for the Bulls 0-3 start is because (insert players names here) are pissed off about the Kobe rumors or Gordon and Deng are pissed off they didn't get their extensions or (insert players names here) are insulted that Ben Gordon thinks he's the best player on the team then Scott Skiles needs to until their intestines are coming out their mouths.

    Well grace, it's possible that you've gone from one soap opera to another.

    Always know that you're welcome back any time. I can't promise that there will be no drama here, but so far, so good.
