Ben Gordon is no Michael Jordan



The Bulls play the Sacramento Kings tonight in the start of a five game West coast road trip that will likely decide the ultimate fate for this year's disappointing team. The Bulls have not been very fortunate in Sacramento's Arco Arena, losing their last eight games against the Kings.

In fact, the last time the Bulls beat the Kings inside Arco was on November 23, 1997, the same season the Bulls finished their second 3-peat. I just had to search for the video of Michael Jordan absolutley schooling the Jazz in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and it made me feel a little bit better about how badly the Bulls have been sucking this year. Everyone remembers how awesome "The Shot" was that Jordan made over Bryon Russell, but that video reminded fans how badly Jordan was abusing Russell throughout that entire game.



The funniest part of the video, something I've actually never noticed before, is at the 5:31 minute mark. After the game is over Jordan is getting mobbed by his teammates and Steve Kerr is hugging Jordan and the only thing he has to say to him is "You're fucking unbelievable", which is pretty much a perfect way to sum up Jordan's performance.

Anyway, enjoy the video and let's hope tonight's game will go differently than past road games against the Kings. The Bulls should welcome Ben Gordon back after he's recovered from his period, I mean "wrist sprain". Gordon has not had the season I bet he'd like to have had going into the end of his contract.

If he were anything like Michael Jordan, let me just say he is not, he would have put his head down and worked his ass off rather than acting like a selfish prick, which is what he's done so far this year. He used to be a fan favorite because of his ability to hit the big shot, something that gave fans some resembelance of MJ, but those days seem like decades ago now, and Gordon probably feels as if this season has dragged on for about 10 years.



Word on the street is "coach" Jim Boylan got the team out of the frigid cold of Minnesota and arrived in California a day early for the Bulls to get a few practices in out west before the start of the road trip. Whether this is a good idea is yet to be seen but I'll take any effort to motivate these assholes if it leads to a winning streak. Remember what those feel like? I sure as hell don't.

To finish for today, I'd like to also welcome new assistant coach Mike Brown to the bench. Brown has been hired to work with the young big men. A veteran of 11 NBA seasons, including two with the Bulls, Brown was Chicago’s third-round pick in the 1985 NBA Draft.



If I were Brown I would make it my first order of business to tell Joakim Noah and Tyrus Thomas to ignore and to forget every single thing that Ben Wallace has told them. In fact, Brown should just tell Wallace to start bringing some reading material to games from now on, because I have a good feeling he's going to be watching a lot of the games from the bench.

I don't leave a response, but I browsed some responses on "Ben Gordon is no Michael Jordan". I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or do a few of the responses appear like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Could you post a list of every one of your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook
page or twitter feed?
