Hey Tyrus. Playing hard means when you get the rebound and pass forward you don't walk upcourt. How many times did I watch a shot of the Bulls offensive court waiting for the fifth guy to get into picture? It was always you. You want to play hard? Take a look at how the best in the league play. See how they practice. You're an NBA player, and make lots of money. The least you can do with your life is to try to be the best you can be. You seem happy to settle. Now I see why they sit you. They are hoping to motivate you to grow up. It appears that you'll be content being the second or third man off the bench. Maybe a trade is what you need.

1. Bulls are no longer a lead story on the Trib site now that Baseball is back!

2. Don't get excited- they played a team worse than them.

3. Why does Thomas get 10 or 11 boards in the first half, and then loaf off for 1 or 2 in the second. Where is the intensity?

4. Why is Gray sitting in the second half? This coach has got to go.

5. Note to Paxson and other Bull decision makers- I stopped- probably along with many others- watching the games on tv, opting to check the scorecard on their website. You want me and others to come back to make your sponsors happy- keep Wallace on the bench an dplay the Joker and Gray more.

I happened to watch the 4th qtr and Miami's play in the last 3:00 looked "suspicious" to say the least. The Bulls played stupid basketball during that time while Miami folded up shop and had the buses running. Perhaps losing 23 of 24 does that to a team.

To your point, they should play the young guys now to see if any blossom. "Bozo" Ben should ride the bench the rest of the way, it is his most effective position.

Gray got hurt towards the end of the first half. The announcers on tv said it looked like a dislocation of some sort on his fingers, hand, wrist. And I agree Wallace must go.

Maybe that is cause he was a first rounder... J/K, but he has been doing great and playing hard keep it up! Hmmm so this is what a balanced backcourt looks like as oppossed to two combo gaurds back their tying to do you know what to a football. Thabo really has freed up Kirk and it is about time to ship out the one-deminsional Bens! Pax its time to grow a pair and cleanup this team!
