@ Bewitched:
I think it was a travel by LBJ, unfortunately. Also, the Cavs' offense has stalled over the past few months. I think that we have become slightly complacent and think that we can just waltz in and beat teams. Not going to happen.
If there is any bright spot regarding Z's injury, it's that Mike Brown will be forced to give Hickson some minutes. He has looked pretty solid so far.
After the game, they were talking to LB about the call. He's still saying it was a bad call. He calls it a "crab dribble" (his signature play) and that he's been doing it all along. I was more upset with the officials at the last Bulls game. They didn't know what they were doing and had to refer to each other way too much. Yeah, I like J J also. What a bench we have this year. Can't wait for the Boston game!

I totally agree with your assessment of Rose, but I don't think the Bulls brought him in to fit with the team they have. They drafted Rose so they could build a new team to fit around him.
This year's going to be tough (and probably next year, too!). But, as much as I disagree with some of Paxson's decisions, I think he's actually putting himself in position to do some good things.
Derrick Rose, a good 2009 draft, a bunch of expiring contracts and a smart free agent signing-- that's a recipe for a quick turnaround in a couple of years.
That doesn't make anyone feel any better about this year, and I'm not too sure about the Bulls' ability to make a good draft pick, but there's certainly no reason to abandon hope just yet.
Yes, Pax has set up some good possibilities for the future. But what now? I have no confidence that he'll take advantage of them properly.

When Pax drafted Rose and ESPECIALLY when he hired Del Negro, I knew he wasn't trying to win. He's buying time to start over. Rose likely to be special and Pax knows the city will be patient with a local kid.

It'd be nice if Reinsdorf would bring in a new GM to build around Rose. With Pax's track record, I just can't assume that he'll put the right pieces around Rose.

The bulls will never win with a selfish clown lIke NOAH on their roster. No need to go much further.
