Default Looks Like Rip Is The Starter

So.... it does appear we paid a ton of money for a backup. Even Joe D realizes BG is not a starter in the league. I still don't understand this move but here's the article:

Ben Gordon has the skills to be an NBA starter, but he likely will come off the Detroit Pistons bench this season. That means Detroit's $55 million super-sub must adapt his game to playing with the first and second units. "It is a little difficult because you got different guys on each squad," Gordon said. "I'm looking forward to more scrimmage time and practice time and continue to build equal chemistry with both units." Michigan Live

"My aggression level is about the same (with starters or with backups)," Gordon said. "But when you're out there with different guys, your role changes. Depending on what shooters are on the floor, what slashers on the floor, I base what I do on the floor with whom I'm playing." Michigan Live
