“What’s wrong with trying? I’m really doing it because it’s fun. That’s really it,” Gordon said. “Some people need shooting. I can shoot.” Gordon insists he’s not attempting his comeback for money. And he won’t put a time limit on how long he’ll try. “The D League is a good way to get in shape and still get exposure,” Gordon said. “My game is in a decent place I guess. I have to continue to get better. I hadn’t played in awhile. So there’s work but I feel good.”
Storyline: Ben Gordon Free Agency
Some NBA players are taking the D-League route, like Ben Gordon. Charlie Villanueva: Which is crazy. Yeah, we’re talking about Ben Gordon. Charlie Villanueva: Ben is a tremendous player, his whole NBA career speaks for itself. We won a college championship together, played together in Detroit with the Pistons for years. But that’s one of the reasons when I look at that situation, I’m like ‘Wow, Ben Gordon went to the D-League!’ That’s amazing, that’s a big deal. If he could do it, how can I not do it? He’s working his way up trying to get an NBA job. So I don’t mind doing the same thing. That kind of inspired me a little bit. The D-League is a possibility. Whatever it takes. I want to play.
Storyline: Charlie Villanueva Free Agency
You did very well in Chicago, then you move to Detroit and it didn’t go so well for you there. What happened? Ben Gordon: We were put together poorly. We had the players, but we didn’t have the chemistry and the leadership to be a playoff team. Obviously, everybody on that team had playoff experience, some guys even had championship experience, but that just shows that in the NBA coaching and chemistry are very important. In Detroit, we just didn’t have the right mix of players and the right leadership from the coaching standpoint.
