08:09 AM ET 01.26 | Losses, trade talk and the attendant uncertainty are making for an unsettling mix in Detroit. That includes Ben Gordon, who signed a five-year deal with Detroit last summer. When Gordon agreed to terms with the Pistons, he believed he was joining a team that would continue to win and contend each season. Instead, he's in the middle of trade rumors and a rebuilding effort that he didn't sign up for. "It's really tough, man. I didn't see this coming. I never saw any of this stuff coming when I signed here. ... When you see stuff happening to a guy like Richard Hamilton, who has won a championship here and had so many great years, I'd be foolish to think that the same couldn't happen to me or anybody else in this room. That's what's going on right now with our team," Gordon said.

Ben, maybe you should demand a trade or something.

Interesting to me to read that he states that, if he knew Detroit was such a re-building project then he wouldn't have signed here.

highest bidder, and what was previously believed to be a well run franchise

Also, Pistons are 6-4 in their last ten with Rip on the bench of the last 8...just saying.

Maybe Ben just maybe if you were more than a one trick pony. Your team might be better.

Gordon had the opportunity to be a part of something special in Chicago. Instead, he thought it was more important to get the money. Whatever happens now, he brought on himself.

@Docmadlab... What so special about Chicago? Do you not watch basketball? Do you even know what basketball is? Gordon was given a fat lump sum of change in Chicago and he turned it down thinking he can get more money somewhere else. Phuk Ben. He got what he wanted and now he's complaining? Oh, Chicago got something special. They're so close to being a contender, they can smell it. The Bulls are a few pieces away from going to the ECF.
