Ben Gordon Doubles as Doughnut Man

A few weeks ago, I presented you the story of Joakim Noah screwing up his doughnut duty as part of his rookie hazing with the Bulls. Ben Gordon was upset that Noah had been bringing Dunkin’ Donuts to the facility instead of Krispy Kreme. Well, that little faux pas resulted in Gordon serving dougnuts at a local shop. Here’s why:

Seems the Bulls’ marketing department was none too pleased that Gordon went public with his complaint that Joakim Noah brought the team doughnuts from Dunkin’ Donuts each day, instead of from Krispy Kreme, as part of Noah’s rookie initiation.

Dunkin’ Donuts is a Bulls sponsor — which is why Gordon found himself serving up pastries and coffee at a Dunkin’ Donuts near the Berto Center after practice.

[Ben] Wallace said he was ready to make Gordon work.

”I’m going to send them back about 10 times because there is a certain way I like my doughnuts,” Wallace said. ”I’m pretty sure he’ll get it wrong.”

First Roy Williams delivers pizza, and now we have Ben Gordon serving doughnuts? What’s next? Ron Artest assisting you at Best Buy? Oh wait …
