If there was any doubt before that the season was lost, there certainly isn't any now.

We were losing with him in there! Besides he takes way to many jump shots even when they are not falling

Should have signed that contract. Now Paxson can offer you less because you didn't produce this year. Same for Gordon. That big payday went out the window, and if you think other teams will offer 50M, pass the smoke to me.

Not a big deal. Just trade him for Kobe.

This should subside Boylan's earlier comments that the Bulls were still in the playoff hunt ... hahahahaha! Yeah, like Ron Paul is in the "hunt" for the presidency.

yeah, I wish. We probably could have gotten Kobe for Gordon, Deng,and someone else before the season started. Now since Paxson screwed up their contract extensions, they are not playing too well this year(at least not Deng). Their value will undoubtedly drop and the bulls will be screwed again. Why did we get rid of Brand and Chandler anyways? The Jordan days were a looooong time ago!

Brand was traded for the draft rights to Chandler.

they will weather the storm. overall deng will still be good for the bulls. Gordon is another question since unlike deng, he doesn't seem to be adjusting his game and getting better at his weak points year to year. I think deng's attitude is better, and he can still imrove. And he's only 22 yrs old. His numbers are slightly higher than last year, but he doesn't create his own shots, and if he's not getting open he's screwed. Plus his free throw shooting needs to get better. Gordon coming in for points off the bench works for me since he can't play defense, might as well stop asking him to, and just get someone who will for most of the game.
