Carol Slezak caught up with Dwyane Wade recently, and here's what Wade said about Ben Gordon.
"He's in a tough situation. Ben is a very good player. He's taken a lot of knocks from people saying he's not tall enough or he doesn't play good defense. But scoring-wise he's one of the best in the game.
"I think a player like him just has to understand that you have to do what you feel is right. Whatever you feel in your heart, you've got to go with it. You can't do nothing that you don't want to do, because you're not going to give it your all. So he wants to make [Chicago] his home, do it. If not, wait it out.
"I don't think he should go to Europe. I don't think he's at the Europe stage. He's just such a good player. There are a lot of teams in the states that would love to have him. I just think he needs to be patient. But he could hop and go for it, and continue to start a trend that's happening over there.
"His game is what his game is. Ben will score. He's a great offensive scorer, a great catch-and-shoot player. That's not going to change. As long as there's a basketball and a rim, he's going to be able to do the same thing.
"I just think you have to look at it as what do you want to do. A lot of people want to stay home. It's interesting when something new comes up -- and right now Europe is new, who knows whether it's going to get big or quiet down-- I just don't see him going over there now. But you never know."
