As a Bulls fan, Ben Gordon has one spectacular skill. He is a great scorer. He does this better off of picks or catch-and-shoot. As someone who watches a lot of Bulls games, Ben will make some ridiculous shots and can burn the other team if he gets on a roll, but I don't think he's a stellar late game option if you're just going to hand him the ball and pray for a miracle. He's too short to make good passes out of double-teams, so if you stick a tall defender on him and/or double-team, you can force him to take a bad shot (and it doesn't not take much coaxing to get Ben to take a bad shot). I am hard-pressed to think of a more polarizing questions amongst Chicago basketball fans than the usefulness of Ben Gordon. Personally, I think the Bulls should use him exactly like the Pistons use Hamilton: run him off of screens like he's Reggie Miller. Let him catch-and-shoot. Don't force him to create off the dribble, because that's not what he's spectucularly good at doing.
For $11M dollars a year (what the Pistons supposedly promised his agent), I don't know if he's worth it. Are Pistons fans excited about this? Will this be a the reverse of the Ben Wallace free agent signing, where it's clear a year or two down the road that you overpaid for a player that really won't put you over the top?
