Bulls consider seeking review of Antonio McDyess screen that hu...

Apparently the Bulls are getting tired of having sand kicked in their faces - or, more accurately, shoulders lowered into them. Full Story

Uhmm.. perhaps I'm just showing my naivete (or forgetfulness) but what was so horrible about the Heat Coach calling a 20 second timeout with 30.9 seconds left and the Heat up by 13 to sub out 3 of his regulars? You didn't actually say what you think is wrong with that and, to me, it seems to make sense that with the game basically over, it's time to get the valuable personnel out of harm's way. Is it considered sporting to leave them out there to see what bad things might happen or is there some other issue I'm completely missing here that was so obvious (to all but me) that it didn't need to be stated? Is it just a matter of quibbling over exactly when we feel the game is over? I don't get it. K.C. obvious thought anyone reading this would understand without further explanation. So I'm asking. Help me out here.

So.. It's not just me? Nobody here recalls what the upset KC referred to was about? Guess that puts the ball in KC's court. He'll either have to be a little more forthcoming with the explanations or perhaps confront his editors over the amount of trimming they do.

It's pretty easy to see what KC was referring to...
The Bulls, nor any hapless team getting their asses kicked, like to see the opposition calling timeouts as it appears they are running up the score...
I agree that teams should be able to pull their stars out when it appears the game is won and I don't see any problem with calling timeouts to do so...
The Bulls were just pitiful in that game and if they don't want to see teams pull their regulars out of the game, perhaps they should come to play more.

Best remedy is to get to 100 pts. in record time and get hamburgers for the fans.

Antonio did what appeared to be a moving screen on Rose who was running full steam. He pretty much body checked his head and likely gave him whiplash and a mild concussion. He laughed it up with a teammate after he did it to Rose like he knew exactly what he had been up to.

The Bulls were pissed because all the Heat needed to do was dribble out the clock with the last possession. There were no "starters that needed to be protected" and no need for a time out. The Heat were just being "cute" and rubbing it in. What the Heat did with such little time left on the clock was out of the norm.

I've made up my mind. Del Negro has to go. Selosha throws a terrible pass. The Bulls don't foul when they had a foul to give. Thomas is lost on a switch. In the NBA when you play like that at the end of a game, you are going nowhere.

I agree. Sefolosha shouldn't have even been on the floor. In that situation, you need free-throw shooters and ball-handlers. Thabo is neither. Lindsay Hunter has been in the league for 15 years and he can't make an inbounds pass. Get real, Vinny. The Bulls will never go anywhere until they get a real coach and learn how to execute down the stretch consistently.
