08:14 AM ET 08.27 | Though he doesn't "feel very British," Ben Gordon would like to play in front of his English home's fans in 2012. Ben Gordon is putting on a new team's jersey next season. But don't panic, the Pistons haven't fallen out of favor with the shooting guard -- at least not yet. While continuing his rehabilitation from off-season ankle surgery, Gordon made a whistle-stop visit across the Atlantic on Thursday to pledge his allegiance to Great Britain, vowing to play for the national team next summer. Gordon, 27, was born in London. "I moved to New York when I was 10 months old," he said. ... "Just to participate in an Olympics is special enough, but to play it here in 2012, in the country I was born," he said. "It would be amazing to play against the U.S. And to beat them."
