Check out Bob's breaking-news alert on the Chicago Tribune's Chicago Breaking Business website, where Bob recently broke the news of former Chicago Bulls player Ben Gordon (who now is with the Detroit Pistons) recently cutting the asking price for his town home in Northbrook, Ill. from $800,000 to $610,000. That's well below the $660,000 that he paid for the town home in 2004.

The town home is in the gated Royal Ridge area of Northbrook, where several other current and former Bulls have owned over the years.
