Ben Gordon , the first player in NBA history to win the Sixth Man of the Year award in his rookie season, had his life going downhill after retirement, and was arrested by police for beating his 10-year-old son at the airport today. Gordon resisted arrest and attempted to assault a police officer, fearing more serious charges.
the beginning and end of the case
According to the "New York Post" report, Gordon was suspected of beating his 10-year-old son at LaGuardia Airport in New York while waiting for a flight to Chicago. The police at the airport later prevented him from boarding the plane and arrested him. It is reported that Gordon initially defended with the police and refused to be arrested, which caused two officers to be slightly injured during the arrest, and successfully handcuffed him and detained him. After Gordon was arrested, the child was taken to hospital by his relatives for treatment and evaluation.
Gordon's NBA career
Gordon, 39, was a rookie who debuted with the third overall pick in the first round in 2004 and broke an NBA record in his first rookie season to win the sixth man of the year honor as an immediate rookie. In the 11 NBA seasons that followed, he played for the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Charlotte Hornets and Orlando Magic, playing in a total of 744 games, averaging 14.9 points and 2.5 rebounds per game and assists, shooting 43.2 percent from the field.
Not the first crime since retiring
It is worth mentioning that this incident has become commonplace in Gordon, because it is not the first time he has been arrested for crimes.
suffering from mental and mental illness
It is understood that Gordon was diagnosed with depression after his retirement and also suffered from mental disorders. The Players Tribune also published an article titled "Where My Heart Is" by retired NBA player Gordon in 2020, which detailed the former NBA player's battle with mental illness and suicidal tendencies.
