Well Hughes Seems to Be the Second Coming Of Jamal Crawford, Jacking Up Shots, In the Papers saying he should start after being here less than a week and now commenting that the players and COACH should take a look at themselves. This Team is a Mess but Hughes worn out his welcome in his last three teams and Gooden's Had Problems Before also. I guess you get what you get when you unload a Big Ben, but the Chirping is Still here from a Bird of a Different Feather.......

Cubs, Sox, Bulls, Black Hawks, Bears(minus the loss at Superbowl)Sky,the Fire, sprinkle in DePaul and Northwestern,it looks like Chicago is not the "place to be" in sports once again. I'm starting to think maybe it has something to do with the City and how fans tolerate mediocrity. Or perhaps it is the bogus owners/administrators,who in their infinite wisdom, play the fans for fools. They still make money and put a bad product on the field or court. All the above being known, the fans still go to the games and buy the jerseys. If You accept mediocrity, that is exactly what you get.
right on! hoping for enough losses to get into the lottery just like seattle did last year.pathetic isn't it. thats the only way for a team that has an owner who's main concern is not falling into the luxury tax to get ahead. be lucky enough to get the first pick.
people still show up and buy their stuff. even though they stink and won't spend money on trades. you have to hit guys like reinsdorf where it hurts him in his pocket. don't buy bulls!

Buh ha ha ha ah. You are joking right?

Oh, serious...oops. No way. Ever. You have to understand how little value the talent on this team has...

The trade was made to tank on purpose. You see, the plan is to get in the lottery, where Flaxon has excelled. Putting in ludicrous lineups and screaming at your players is the perfect recipe for lethargic attitudes and getting that "lucky" lottery ball. What a shame I don't get to see these losers.
Go Lakers!
I stand up for Pax a lot, but to say he has excelled in the lottery is a bit silly. Gordon, Kirk, Tyrus, Noah? Deng was a solid pick despite his play. And Kirk turned out to be solid compared to the other options...but my there are plenty of others in recent drafts that would have looked really good in red.

Boylan was out coached. Gooden is an average power forward, why did he play center most of the game? Larry Hughes was never better than Ben Gordon, why didn't we find a way to get our leading scorer going? I understand competition, but for it to work people have to be competing for specific jobs (or roles). For example is Gooden a power forward or center, What is Tyrus Thomas' role, does Gordon play point or shooting guard, is Nocioni a small forward or power forward?????

Boylan will get nowhere, until his players know what they are competing for and who they are competing against.... I don't remember Gooden or Hughes being a problem when the Bulls played Cleveland. The Gordon / Hughes backcourt was the most efficient, when Skiles was here he mentioned how well the Gordon / Sefolosha backcourt worked together.

I watched Lakers the other night, such a joy to watch good bball: you know solid D, fleshy offense, hussle. Major difference with these Bulls - everyone on the Lakers team plays hard, they fight for every ball, even the lesser known players. Bulls play casual,'damn another game' ball. Oh yeah, totally pathetic coach - then again, who would want to coach this bunch???

I object to the Chicago loser tag. Short memories. The Jordan Bulls, the Bears before this year, the White Sox of a few years ago. We would all like to win more titles. But there are a lot of cities that would like to be as good as us. How many titles lately have been won by Philadelphia, Miamai, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, etc., etc. My real disappoitment is that most cities don't have as many pro teams as Chicago and it is pretty tough for all of them to go bad at the same time. I also wonder if anyone has the futility of the Cubs. The Black Hawks streak is also getting pretty long.
