Bad decisions and Ben Gordon have always gone together, and always will. And Deng, sat and pouted and whined about how the organization wasn't treating him fairly last season. So Bulls management caved in, and way overpaid the average at best player, and now realize he may not even be an average type player.

WAIT A MINUTE, IF IT WASNT FOR BEN & NOCIONI WE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN BLOWN OUT... yEAH WE SHOULD HAVE ONE KEY MISTAKES TOWARDS THE END. bUT PPL FORGET WE WERE DOWN BY 17 IN THE FIRST HALF. Who brought them back mainly Noce, Rose & BG. aGAIN IN THE 2ND HALF, WE WERE DOWN 3 UNTIL STUPID tYRUS tHOMAS TURNED THE BALL OVER THREE TIMES IN A ROW & left Lewis open for three twice in a row. But once again we came back bc of BG & nOCE. dEL nEGRO WAITS TO LONG TO BRING IN THE SUBS, THTS Y EVERYGAME WE FALL BEHIND EARLY. pLEASE CHANNGE THE LINEUP, DENG IS OVERPAID HE CANNOT CREATE HIS OWN SHOT, rOSE AS PG SHOULD NOT BE TAKING THE MOST SHOTS. pUT GORDON IN THE LINEUP & HE DRAWS ATTENTION, MAYBE IT WILL OPEN UP LANES FOR LOU TO DRIVE.

I don't know how many of you young whippersnappers remember a player the Bulls use to have in the 80's called, called "O"rlando Wooldridge. the "0" was for NO rebounds, "0" Defense.
Luol Deng is Orlando Woolridge re-incarnated. You couldn't Pay him to muck-it up under the basket. But he'd grunt and groan to make a lay-up, put up a shot in a nano-second.
Deng and Gordan will NEVER admit it, but when Paxson gave Heinrich a contract before those 2- guys, he did something to their "Pysche", irreplicably.
Quite honestly, this team is a mess. They don't have a SINGLE skilled forward/big man. Grey, Noah, Gooden(hardly strikes fear in a D-league Team). Paxson needs to "grovel" at the feet of his "master" (Reinsdorf), and beg him to allow him to make a trade or 2.
He's orlando woolridge but without the athleticism. Remember, Orlando Woolridge could jump out the building. He just didn't have any game.

I just have one question. Did we draft Rose as a PG or SG. Can we please pass the memo to our dump rookie coach to get the ball out of Hinwich's and Gordans hands and let a real player make plays and create for them. They cant do it them selves so we need Rose to create for them. May the rookie coach doesnt want to end up in timeout with his players so he is letting them do what they want..... Take control mr pax's puppet. BTW...Is the next greatest player in NBA still on bulls. I think his name was Luol Deng, who we refuse to trade for Kobe, Garnet, and even Gasol. Pathetic!!! Get some guts Pax!

new coach, new number 1 draft pick (that's the hopeful savior) and same result as usual another loss. how can deng be in such a funk trying to adapt to a new system? why is there such a confusion with a cluttered guard rotation? with all this, how can the bulls lose to the magic by only 3 points?

i don't know if vinnie will be a good coach for this team or not? however, he can't be any worse than the past coaches the team has had. with the exception of tinny, timmie whatever sleepy floyd that the bulls hired during the 98 title run, no coach has ever been that good. why can't be they bring him back. long live jerry reinsdoofus and jerry "crumbs" krause

Why wasnt the ball in D Rose hands at the end of the game. Why do ben gordon think he is the go to guy. I think the ball should always be in Derrick Hands. The coach needs to be the coach and tell this to Kurt and been.

The Bulls do have a point guard: Derrick Rose. That is final. Not Kirk Hinrich. He is a combo guard. The Bulls have no one who can create their shot except DR. Ben Gordon, do not touch the ball until you're ready to shoot. How simple is it? The rest of the Bulls MUST run their lane, that's all. They must move without the ball. Stop trying to create your own shot with constant dribbling because we have Derrick Rose for that. If you can't do that John Paxon MUST make a trade then. How history repeats itself. This team is like Michael Jordan's Bulls before Scotty, Horace, and Bill Cartwright arrived. It's time to build around DR with everyone else as a trade piece.

THIS IS WHY PAXSON SHOULD HAVE HIRED MARK JACKSON, U ACTUALLY NEED A PROVEN PLAYER COACH TO COACH A TEAM WITH TALENT... I didnt understand tht, we all knew Rose was going to be our pick, hire a great former PG WHO PLAYED A HUGE ROLE ON WINNING TEAMS. aTLEAST PLAYERS KNOW WHO HE IS, i REMEMBER dEL nEGRO AS A PLAYER & HE WAS A BUM, PAXSON WAS A BETTER PLAYER THAN HE WAS... ANYWAY CHANGE THE LINEUP
