And bring back Stacey King to grab 2 rebounds.
What is it with this bunch? Is it too much eating of Crispie doughnuts, smoking the herb or what? Why can't we have a group of fighters like they have in Portland? Hey this is the Chicago Bulls everyone.
Is it JP's fault or collective numbness overall. I don't get it.

Now that they signed Deng to the big contract, they dont need this guy. Unfortunately, nobody else needs a slow 6-6 Argentian either.

Winded (WINDED????)No-Shot Noah along with Capt Klank the circle dribbling clock eater should be traded. The problem is that no other team with a brain would want these two clowns who belong glued to the bench.......

Hughes should start with Gordon as the 6th man ..if Gordon doesn't heal soon the Bulls won't have any chance of winning.

Nocioni is a nice 7th or 8th guy off the bench------nothing more..

Paxson as ususal is clueless.......

All you read is how everyone's out of shape, how the new coaching staff needs time, how this, how that. One thing the Bulls have, that most of the other Chicago teams don't have, is no expectations placed on them. They best not be surprized though, when the attendence gets back down in the early 80's range. I think people are really tired of trying to hang in there, and wait, hoping that at some point the glory days will come back around. Those days are long gone now, and truthfully nowhere in sight. The days of Theus, Woolridge, Corzine, etc. etc. are back i believe.

It's going to be a lot of close, frustrating losses this year because we have no real franchise players. Everyone should have been in their best shaping knowing the personnel limitations we have. THis is inexcusable. Trade this bum.

Nocioni is doing the Bulls a disservice. After every summer in which he commits to his National Team Nocioni comes up lame in camp. He will continue to abuse his body for the love of his country as long as he can walk. Unfortunaltley a lame horse does the Bulls no good during the season. I love Nocioni but he has to go, sooner than later.

I donĀ“t think he is just a slow 6-6 Argentian, A fully healed Nocioni is priceless. Not only his game is what matter, but also his passion and effort. I agree that with Deng signed, he should be traded, in many teams he could be starter. I dont expect much this season. Wel, I still dont get why didnt we pick Baisley so, what else can be said...
