Hey, let's be blunt and straight-talk for a change.

Scoring WITH Deng and Gordon is tough.

Like Storm'in Norman Van Lier said a week or so ago, this Bulls team offensively is like a pea-shooter compared with a howitzer. They'd have trouble putting up points against one of the vocational league highs school teams in Chicago. On the Bulls, the "go-to" guy is more like the "go-away" or "gone-away" guy. On this Bulls team, "being able to finish" has a different context than the certaintly of scoring at or near the rim. On this Bulls team, "point guard" isn't Kirk Hinrich; it refers to what Coach Boylan has to do to be sure Hinrich, Gordon, Duhon, etc. know which end of the court they need to dribble to ..."Point guard". There is more "penetration" taking place on HBO-Showtime any night than there is when the Bulls are in the front-court. If I want to learn how to score, I don't watch a Bulls game; I read Tom Brady's biography. Rim shot please.

I'm a novice. And I haven't watched Bulls basketball since Jordan played. I watched the 3rd quarter last night, and was just dumb-struck. I couldn't believe how bad they were. Then, at the beginning of the 4th, they said the team was getting back their starters, I thought it would change. Oh my gosh... it was unbelievable. How on earth did they go from so good they inspired someone like me to become a basketball fan to so bad they made me turn away in literal disgust! Yikes...
