Ben Gordon on the Pistons’ New Offense

BG says Detroit in 2010 will be nothing like the Pistons we’ve seen over the last few years: “I know we’re gonna be a very high power offensive team, so we’re gonna definitely get out, and run, and play uptempo, and try and score a lot of points. Just talking to coach Kuester, we’re really gonna have to focus on rebounding the ball well and playing team defense, ’cause right now we’re not a big team on our front line particularly. So, we’re gonna have to focus on really playing team defense and trying to create offense through our defense, but still playing that uptempo style, and kinda getting out on the break and having a good time.”

    “We want to score a lot of points but also make sure the team doesn’t score a lot of points”

    Ben Gordon AKA Captain Obvious.

  • Joe

    Pistons will be a 5th seed at best.

    This is YOUR team, TAD.

    BG has a reset button for man-to-man defense. Best evident as Paul Pierce was able to score 3 consecutive times from the foul line.

  • dsleepy

    Thank you for acknowledging, Jukai. Now, would you like to sit on the therapist couch after myself to talk about YOUR Phoenix Suns?

  • http://djsklfl.com Jukai

    Yes. Yes I would.

    WOW, Gordon goes to the Pistons and they change the style of play better to suit him. Iverson goes to the Pistons and they make a scapegoat out of him. Joe Dumars is a real f*ckin genius.

    Free Rip Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince.

    Teddy: what in the hell are you talking about? Dumars is the GM, he isn’t in the huddle designing plays or running the practices. You do realize that the Pistons have a new coach, right? You do also realize that AI didn’t join the team until the 5th game last season and that Detroit already had a system in place, right? Anyway, who was blaming AI except the media? I certainly was not.

    @Teddy: You’re right this is pissing me off. I hope A.I. drops 50 on these suckas and hits threes infront of the Pistons bench and I hope he walks over Rip or Stuckey like he did to Lue.

    What do Ben Gordon and Ricky Bobby have in common? They both wanna go fast!!!(and both go insane at one point or another, Ricky did that mid-movie, BG is doing that now aka mid-career).

  • scntfc

    @ pardeep. AI has to get a job first. say what you want about the pistons. but your boy is about to draw unemployment unless he goes overseas. Is that because Detroit ruined him? Or is it because every other team out there is all set at his position? things that make you say hhhhhmmm!

  • bc
