These Bulls suck. I'm no athlete but its plain to see the team chemistry that made them competitive is gone. I blame the management for trying to play hard ball with the contracts of Deng and Gordon. I also blame Deng and Gordon because both seem to be playing for a mega contract.

kc, you are close to the action. most of these players are pretty good. but you need a point guard. no offense to hinrich, but he ain't a point guard. i don't know if he's a shooting guard either. his shooting percentage is awful. of course both those guys got lowballed on their contracts. how can hinrich make more than either of those guys?

The biggest story is the deterioration of Kirk Hinrich's play. What has caused his regression and is there any reason to hope it will end?

This is a business. If you don't like it, don't support it. But tell that to the 20k + fans that show up at home. They enjoy a good time. Maybe some of you need to support another team.

What!?!?!? They fired Skiles. Why aren't the bulls better? Are you saying it's the players and not the coach? Noooooooo!?!?

Let' see- the headline should have read: "Bulls half done!" Give them another 2 weeks and they'll be completely done.

The Bulls were the same team last year right, THEY SUCKED last year. The problem was teams last year took the Bulls for granted and figured and overlooked them in most instances. This year those same teams are playing them the way they should have played them last year, and are showing them that they weren't as superior as they thought. With the exception of 4 players all bench players anyway, the Bulls are the same team with the same talent, with the same problems as they had last year. You can't blame Skiles on the Bulls failure, you can't blame the team as a whole on their struggles, Blame management for not pulling the trigger and bringing a dominant inside scorer not named Ben Wallace or Joe Smith to a young team without that kind of presence. The only team that is different in the East are the Boston Celtics via trade. All the other teams made little to no offseason moves so they are basically the same teams they were last year. The Bulls were over-rated last year and it shows this year. You can't win with garbage so why try

Deng is done for the next month........ I thought we could go 30-12 over the last 42 games to finish at 46-36 and push Toronto for the 6 seed, considering this is the same team that won 50 games last year and made the 2nd round, and we're a young team so we're supposed to be getting better and not worst..... and the fact that we added Joe Smith and Noah to that team and Joe Smith has been a better option down low on offense than anybody we had last year..........

But now that Deng is out for a few weeks, I give up hope. Its all over. The season is done, Im depressed and I give up all hope. The season is over.

Hinrich was a good PG last season.
