Ben Gordon Doesn’t Regret Turning Down Extension

The only time he thinks about declining a five-year, $50 million extension or playing a season-low 14 minutes Friday is when asked.

"I’m happy with my decision, regardless what happens," Gordon said of the former. "We’ll see what happens in the off-season."

As for the latter, Gordon, who had four fouls, said blowing an 18-point lead and losing to Philadelphia made his playing time "an afterthought." [Chicago Tribune]
