Maybe VDN has eyes and a brain. 49 minutes for Thabo. Thabo should absolutely be the starting 2 guard, and he should play as many minutes as his body can handle. Unfortunately, he probably got his chance to start for the same reason that Bonehead Boylan finally gave him his chance last season, he had no choice, injuries forced his hand.

Thabo, Deng and Gordon should be a 3 man rotation at the 2 and 3, with Thabo starting and swinging between the 2 and 3, with Gordon being the first guard off the bench. Hinrich should simply be Rose's backup, which means not much more than 12 minutes a night, and Hughes should never be allowed to wear a Bulls uniform again. He should be sent home to hang with Eddie Robinson, and do whatever useless overpaid ballers do.

Luol with a sore back. Isn't this guy supposed to be some kind of model with his hard work, conditioning, attitude, etc. which justifies paying him all that money? Keep him on the bench, I'm not exactly salivating waiting for him to come back and heave ho jump shots.
Rose needs to play under control. 82 games going all out will take a toll on you.
Guess new Bulls staff doesn't have an idea about conditioning with so many players hurt.
It's pathetic what's happening to Gordon. He's a good guy and actually a difference maker. At least the Bulls are keeping their trade discussions private.
What's not surprising is how gutless the Tribune Sports has become. All they can do is report facts, why not some analysis and trade inside info? Oh yeah, that left with Sam Smith.

Will, breathe man... it was a pre-season game, which means that it didn't count. Why play a guy who you will NEED this year for a game that didn't matter?

Figure to see a guard combo of Rose and Thabo to start... Hinrich comes off the bench to spell Rose, and Gordon comes off the bench for Thabo and some change of pace. Ben won't start as long as he won't defend. But he's a good scorer when you need him.

I actually think the Bulls will be an entertaining team this season, and have shown they have some players who can score.

Even though we got out to a big early lead--more due to Milwaukee's ineptness than anything we did--our play last night was pretty ugly. Nocioni was a bright spot, though he can be off and on. And true, we had Thomas, Deng, and others missing from the lineup. But anyway you slice it, this year looks like it will be dismal--maybe 30 wins. Couldn't believe it when Rick Morrissey said on CSN last night he thinks the Bulls will be in the playoffs.

I'm with Will P. on Tribune Sports. Seems like a lot of K.C. Johnson's stories lately have been just repackaged Bulls PR releases. I'd like to see more of an edge to K.C.'s writing myself. Tell us what we don't already know. Glad to hear Sam Smith is reprising his column on the Bulls web page. Sounds like he got editorial independence too.

Every game it seems Rose gets hurt. Is he soft like Gordon? The Bulls are complete garbage with a garbage GM and garbage rookie head coach, no big men, etc. Another horrible season of Bulls basketball straight ahead folks.

Regarding the survey, what concerns me the most is the typo. The word "concerns" does not contain an apostrophe.

Finishing 4-4 in the preseason after a poor start bodes well for the Bulls. I am pulling for Del Negro and his charges[pardon the pun].

Beasley? Players like him come a dime a dozen. His defense is bad, the bulls already have a player that scores in bunches and plays shady defense (gordon). Plus Drew Gooden will put up similar numbers as Beasley offensively, and Gooden has some good defensive skills.

Here's one that hopes Gordon sits on the bench come Tuesday night, just the same as he did the entire exhibition season. Gordon throws that garbage out there to the media, like he wants to play, but they just won't play him, when in reality you can bet there's caveat's about that, in regards to his conversations with the coaching staff. The coaching staff would like nothing better you can bet, than to have Gordon out there learning the system, getting into game shape, playing with his teammates. This is Gordon's doing imo, and nothing could convince me otherwise. Gordon's a selfish, pouting, crybaby, who will never forgive the Bulls, for in his opinion snackcaking him moneywise. It's obvious he feels the Bulls care more for Deng, and he's going to do whatever it takes to force the Bulls hand on moving him elsewhere. Personally, i agree with him to a point, as i'd love to have seen the same treatment done to Luol Deng, and had the Bulls move both of them. To think Reinsdorf was loony enough to give 77 mil. to an avg. at best hybrid forward, is unbelievable.

The MASH unit Del Negro has going in Training Camp in his first year sounds like all the injuries the Bears suffered in Lovie Smith's first year. Rookie coach pushing too hard? I suppose time will tell.
