MLK tribute serious stuff for Gordon

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Both Ben Gordon and Joakim Noah spoke with passion in pregame video tributes to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Saturday at the United Center.
``Dr. King, what he's done for this nation and the world, his life and what he stood for is amazing,'' Gordon said Sunday. ``So before the game I took that very seriously. I didn't want to just go up there half-heartedly and not represent him in the right way. Before the game I was practicing what I was going to say. I wanted to make sure I did him justice [in] the few minutes I had to talk about him.''
