Ben Gordon reportedly told Mike Dunlap that he needed to "humble himself," and the Bobcats are now expediting their efforts to trade Gordon before the deadline, sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Wow. Last season it was Tyrus Thomas who got into a spat with Paul Silas, and now Gordon isn't getting along with Dunlap. The team did not suspend Gordon because they didn't want to weaken his perceived trade value, but it's pretty weak as it is. The Nets, a team with rumored interest in Gordon, are reportedly "still mulling" an offer of Kris Humphries for Gordon, but don't appear inclined to make a move.

Somehow I think "humble" is not an exact quote.

Hahahaha, TP I didn't even think of that.  I wonder what other possible substitution words there are besides humble?

If I was Gordon I would do or say anything to get out of the Bobcats too. And if I were the Nets I would jump at the chance of sending Humphries out to bring in Gordon. I would trade Humphries for anybody.

Maybe he was quoting the Iron Sheik.

Wow. He could really help a team though. He has the potential to be dynamite in a playoff series. Remember 2009?...

Not surprising. The coach treats his players like they are still in high school.

I am surprised that Dunlap hasn't had more problems. He would have had if he were coaching a veteran team. All these rookies and youngsters are less willing to challenge him. It's only a matter of time until he is fired.

I am pleased Ben Gordon was the one to challenge him. That only increases my level of respect for B.Gordon.

I would love to have Gordon on the Celtics. Still a terrific scorer.

TP.  So funny, that's the first thing I thought of.  One of the most ridiculous interviewers ever.

Worse than Michael Jordan!  I will break his back!
