"I think there will be more games missed," Gordon said when reached by phone as he was driving to Chicago. "I expect it might be a year or two. I realized that when I was listening to both sides during the negotiations. I think there will be a lot of games missed and more money is going to go down the drain.
Why is Gordon so pessimistic? Previous negotiations with the owners. Via Ellis:
"It just seemed scripted, and they were going through the motions," said Gordon, calling it a valuable learning experience. "Sitting there in front of them you could tell they weren’t focused on getting a deal. I still don’t know the purpose of those meetings."
So, I wonder why isn’t Gordon the Pistons’ player representative?*
