Ben Gordon

 

It appears the Charlotte Bobcats were already attempting to trade guard Ben Gordon before the February 21st trade deadline. But after a recent incident at a team shootaround, the team is even more eager to move Gordon.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

As Dunlap led the Bobcats in a morning shootaround on Monday before a victory over the Celtics, Gordon refused Dunlap’s request to stop bouncing a ball as the coach spoke, sources said. Before long, Gordon began baiting Dunlap, telling him that he needed to “humble himself,” sources said.

Gordan refused to give the ball to Dunlap, and eventually tossed it toward a ball rack, sources said.

Disrespect can never be tolerated, so I certainly can’t be upset with how the Bobcats may feel about Ben Gordon. If he is traded, he certainly deserved it.
