Bulls Get New GM, Paxson: New Job

Gar Forman took over John Paxson's position as the general manager of the Bulls in expected news.
Wasting no time, Forman is already on the record as saying that getting sometime star, Ben Gordon to reup with the franchise is a priority. Big Mistake! Look, Ben Gordon is a totally passable professional basketball player, the only major problem is that he's a black hole on offense. Yes, he'll make big shots from time to time, see: Round One of this year's Playoffs; but he'll often miss a ton of ill-advised shots that his ego tells him he can make. These misses will often be rebounded by the other team, starting a fast break opportunity for said team; leading to easy baskets against the Bulls. Additionally Gordon can't figure out how to play defense; so, please, Forman, I beg you, shop Gordon or send him happily on his way to the fortunes of free agency and let some other team get burdened with a bloated contract payable to BG7.
