KC, you must be joking if you think Tyrus will come off the bench. The man has been an absolute beast the last 8 games. He is finally developing and understanding his strengths as a player, why start Gooden? He won't even be here next year let alone next month (if he is traded). If Vinny reduces TT's minutes he should be fired because he is essentially making a Jim Boylan like mistake. This year means jack sh**. It's about player development and possibly slipping into the playoffs to get experience. It's absurd to think about shattering Thomas' already fragile confidence when its at a peak right now

Cant agree more ACW. All this talk of trades etc.. is tiring. TT and Noah are improving so what is the rush?? Summer is time enough for all of this.Young healthy players will improve. Older, temperamental injury prone stars can only get worse and disrupt a team's harmony.

Like I said early on...
The Bulls will turn things around when three things happen:
1. Hughes is gone.
2. Gooden is gone.
3. Gordon is gone.

2 of 3 have happened so far and the third is on the way.

I'd imagine that pretty much every NBA player can dunk.

I mean, plenty of rec leagues are full of guys who can dunk, and they're about as far from pro athletes as you can get. Hell, even I could do it back when I was a 6'2" college lad whose training regimen consisted mostly of tequila.

Why this is the lead article in the sports section is beyond me. Hawks are 4-1 on a west coast swing. They beat the team right above them in Conference standings, Calgary (in Calgary), soundly. Yet this is the lead article in the sports section? Who cares if Paxson can dunk or not. If the Trib were going to highlight NBA basketball on a Bulls OFF-night, highlight the Lakers Celtics game. Better yet, highlight a winning Chicago team, the Blackhawks.

Anyone..............and I mean any one who thinks Paxson is capable of making an NBA quality trade is a FOOL.

Because you are the only one that cares about the Blackhawks, and even you read this article.

If you jump over to the BooYah's website, Marc Stein actually calls out Pax on this (to the extent that he can, anyway).

The biggest mistake is to think that this team is 'good enough' based off of the last couple of weeks. Yes, they have played better (getting rid of the dual blackholes known as Gooden and Hughes has been a huge help); but really, they're about as good as they are ever going to get (even with a little more experience, Rose could only get this team to 45 wins, max) unless there is a change in the talent.

Gordon is the last straw that needs to go. Once he goes, they go up.

Thomas for Aldridge was a great deal for Paxson...
As was No.7 for Deng.
