Former Piston Ben Gordon‘s baller Detroit-area mansion is staying in the family. Current Celtics forward (and Gordon’s former Pistons teammate) Jonas Jerebko has purchased the massive six-bedroom home complete with an indoor gymnasium and three-section pool with a fountain for $2.2 million. Jerebko (pictured above) was traded from the Pistons to the Celtics more than a year ago, but the Swedish star is keeping his roots in Michigan—and getting a great deal in the process.
Gordon gives the Warriors a needed shooter off the bench as a former 20-point-a-game scorer who has shot better than 40 percent from 3-point range in his career. “One of the things I heard a lot of guys say is they want to get better than they were last year,” Gordon said. “With most of the team here, the chemistry is already there. And the style of play is just a lot of ball movement. The longer guys are together, the easier the reads are going to be. I think they’ll definitely be able to do that.”
Avocados, oatmeal, textured vegetable protein, pasta, juice and smoothies were part of Ben Gordon’s typical diet at the end of last season. In his quest to make the Golden State Warriors’ roster, the veteran shooter plans to return to vegetarian mode from time to time to keep his body sharp. “I experimented with it this summer and the end of last season,” Gordon said after the Warriors’ first practice of the season on Tuesday. “As you get older you try to see different things that work for you. I’m not doing it right now, but I try to do it functionally depending on how my body feels. “With all the running and stuff, protein is hard to get by [on a vegetarian diet]. … I like to mix it up.”
