Who cares?

As long as John "No Moves" Paxson is "leading" this team it's not going anywhere.

Bulls are boring. NBA is boring. Thank goodness the Blackhawks are back or there'd be nothing in Chicago after the Bears are done until baseball in April.

The really bad part of this game was watching Rose become less of a distributor. Looks like he is starting to believe his own headlines. Noah is absolutely worthless. If someone says this guy is talented again, I am going to puke. Deng is going to be a boat anchor for years to come.

When will paxson get the boot? He has no business keeping a job. How can you hire del negro? People spend good money to watch this garbage. Lou deng larry hughes Gooden, and a host of scrubs. Rose confidence will be shot after 2 years of non leadership in the front office, and a coach that don't have a clue.

Right, Tiffany. That is shown by Miami's rich NBA heritage and multiple championships.

Other than the amount of hookers and coke available in Miami, neither the city nor the team has anything on Chicago.

Ok Chicago, the Bulls have one reason for hope, and we all know what or better who that is. Derrick Rose may not at first listen sound like a really bright guy or have a lot of charisma, but then again the kid just turned twenty. What he is undoubtedly is a very talented player with a champion record, and a winner's pedigree. How many Freshmen lead a team with only one other NBA scoring prospect to a championship(but for one blown/unused timeout by throw em' under the Bus Calipari, that's another story). Answer, I'm thinking of Magic Somebody.

Derrick probably isn't going to be another Magic or Larry, but chances are with his scoring potential being through the roof, and his point guard prowess only awaiting some offensively talented big men recipients, he's most likely going to be a franchise type player or close to it.

Bottom line: Rose deserves better than Noah, Thomas, and Aaron Gray. Who are the few worthwhile players on this Bulls team? Some say Deng, some say Gordon. Question really is, with a good defensive coach like Skiles what we ended up with was a frustration meltdown when the league caught on to the fact that Chicago was an athletically challeneged ball club.

So who hired these sub par players?John Paxson. And who hired Paxson and signed Luol Deng to a preposterously overpaid contract? Jerry Reinsdorf.
He hired em'. Now fire him. Replace Paxson with a scout or assistant G.M from a perrenial winner like San Antonio, or up and comers like Orlando and New Orleans.

Chicago's payroll is not much different than Orlando's. Yet they signed franchise trifecta cornerstones Hedo Turkoglu and Rashard Lewis though free agency eliminating the trade impasse song and dance we've come to expect here in Chicago. Not to mention picking up defensive wizz Stan Van Gundy.

Jerry, you lucked into Derrick, for the love of god dump the contracts of incomplete Gordon and Gooden, and take the $17-20 Mill to sign a top free agent. Available this summer: the aforementioned Turkoglu, Devin Harris, and Carlos Boozer with second tier fine players Mehmet Okur, Lamar Odom, and Al Harrington. I like Harris, Turkoglu, and Okur. But Jerry, for all the fan sold out stadiums over the lean years, Derrick's coming was a sign. It's time to win again. By the way get rid of no 'D' Del Negro,and bring in Avery Johnson or Jeff Van Gundy so we can attract those free agents, and finally see some actual defense played again.

We could view it this way. Mario Chalmers outplayed Derrick Rose at the NCAA, during the pre-season and once again...

...a pattern emergeth. ;)

You are right about dumping Gooden and Gordon, though.

With all the Bulls' injuries Cedric Simmons gotta believe Del Harris and Bernie Bikerstaff will see more time on the floor before he does.

I'll throw a different perspective on this:
At the Celtics game Tommy Heinson, not one to hand out superlatives to anyone not in green said he really like Aaron Gray and that he had allot of potential.
He played great until after the half and then VDN played Noah who can't hang onto the ball. However, that was the big knock on Chandler when he was in chicago too and look how he turned out? Well, maybe not as NOH seem to be vying for the NBA's most disappointing team.
Unfortunately, Rose is getting no respect from the refs at all. Given the way that guy attacks the rim he should have gone to the line 10 times last night and multiple replays showed he was getting mugged inside and getting no calls, while DWade was getting more than his share despite a horrid shooting night.
Then there was Tyrus getting mugged by Haslem and not getting a call on either end.
This team gets horrid ref treatement on the road and gets pretty good treatment at home, one the many reasons the NBA is close to the bottom in terms of quality of the 4 major sports. Refs don't call fouls fairly or the same game to game.
What was Larry Hughes thinking tonight? Horrid shots getting jacked up, no ball movement and then the few really open looks he had he clacks them.
