I used to be a Ben Gordon hater. I saw the points he put up but dismissed them as the result of selfishness and inefficiency. I used to think he wasn't worth the money.
I find the titular question bouncing through my mind after seeing the box score and noticing BG had 7 assists. I thought wow, that must be a season high only to find out he had 8 assists five games ago. He is averaging a career high 3.7 assists and he is shooting 15.6 feild goals in 36 minutes That doesn't seem to me to be a disproportionately high amount of shots from a "shooting guard."(can any stats people out there prove or disprove this?) He is averaging 445 field and 409 3p%. 85% from line.
I'm really curious to see what people out there think. Is there anyone else out there that has warmed up to Gordon? Should Gordon be resigned? Do you think he fits with Rose? Is his improved play only about getting a new deal? Is anyone comfortable with the fact that a guy who hired vinny del negro is going to make this decision at the end of the year?
