I was thinking the C's and Bulls boards could have a bet about who wins the 6th man of the year award.

If Ricky Davis wins Bulls posters have to use a Davis avatar and have a sig of the C's fans choosing until the end of the playoffs and vis versa.

Anyone interested?

Gordon is pretty much a lock IMO. I'll make the bet though. Even if I made this avatar for whiteboy. We could make this a vbookie bet. <IMG SRC="http://img167.exs.cx/img167/7199/20050110gallery44ex.gif" align="right">

This is going to be fun, our forum is known for bets like this, with other bbb.net communities.

And we'll see how much of a lock Gordon is after Ricky wins it. :p (Gotta have a bit of trash talk, right?)

Let's make this a bit more interesting.

If Gordon wins, the Celtics posters (those who want to be part of it) will have to put anything your hearts desire in our signatures.

This is going to be my request:

"Boston>>>>>Chicago, Celtics>>>>Bulls, Ricky Davis>>>>>Ben Gordon"

It'll be sweet.

I don't wanna start a debate here, but Ricky Davis does play starter's minutes (32 min/game), so it's no surprise he has starter's production. Technically, he's a 6th man...but at the same time, a normal 6th man doesn't play over 30 per game. Ben Gordon plays 24 min/game and scores almost the same...I think that's very noteworthy in the 6th man voting. Sorry, continue your bets...didn't mean to hijack.

Ben Gordon averages .532 FGA per minute.
Ricky Davis averages .384 FGA per minute.

Seeing how Ben Gordon can score that much at a 43% clip in only 24 minutes a game, I'd say that's a testament to his superior ability to manufacture good shots. Gordon also leads the NBA in double-digit 4th quarters for a playoff team. If you've seen some of his 4th quarters, he is pretty much unstoppable when the team needs him to.

Anyway, I said I wouldn't debate so I'll refrain from that. :)

Right, I am sure the fact Davis doesn't get as many shots per minute has nothing to do with the fact he's playing with Pierce, Walker, Payton, and LaFrentz (each of which has averaged at least 11.5 PPG for their careers) while Gordon is playing with Curry and a PG playing shooting guard who, ironically, can't shoot.

Come on guys/gals. You don't really have this little amount of faith in Gordon, do you?

Who has the better record? ;)

The fact that Gordon does what he does in 4th quarters if he's playing with a bunch of scrubs who can't score should make him all the more amazing. Did I mention he's also top 10 in the NBA in 3 point % too?
