Default Ben Wallets

Do you guys still have a special place in your herat for him or is he forever a traitor?

If not, send your condolences and your acknowledgment, and then model your lifestyle to overcome hardships like he did from Virginia Union to the NBA. Thanks!

hehe .. Ben WALLETS
Personally, I think leaving Detroit was a mistake on his part, he seemed to play best with our guys, but, the NBA is more than a game, it's a business as well, so I understand and forgive Big Ben :)

I appreciate what he did for us, but he'll never be as high up on my list as he was before. I think he pretty much cost himself and us at least 1 championship. Had he stayed in Detroit he would have been a fan favorite. He was hated in Chicago and certainly doesn't get as much respect in Cleveland. Though his game was declining, he fit in better in Detroit and it wouldn't have declined so fast had he stayed there. As far as image goes taking the money was one of the dumbest things I've seen a player do. Detroit gave him an offer that was more than reasonable. In the end he wasn't loyal to us, so I'm not loyal to him.
