ooooooooooooooK Hinrich is coming back to play what the two guard position?? Hinrich is not a great shooter and turns the ball over a awful lot. Hinrich need to be traded, I just don't know what the love affair is with a guy who is not a pure poing guard and is not a two guard

i agree with larry. kc is depressing. he's making it seem as if jordan is coming back. hinrich will be in foul trouble, as usual. the only reason he stays in the game is that the refs don't call all of his fouls. yeah, hopefully they can trade him for a big guy.

i don't remember all of this anticipation when deng got hurt or whenever gordon or anyone else. when is gooden returning? why does kc put hinrich on such a high pedestal? is this ridiculous or what. hinrich has done nothing to deserve this superstar treatment. if hughes is complaining, how does hinrich fit in? only backing up rose or gordon. hinrich does not play power forward or center. he can't second team defense these guys. so what is he gonna do?

Hinrich is exciting!!!!!!!!!!

I can hardly wait to see this slow, clock eating, attack killer, circle dribbler, Klank the ball off the rim.

Kapt Klank's career inconsistent streak shooting is worth waiting for!!!

The high point of Klank's attack is the complete circle dribble under the basket while eating the shot clock.
This allows him to pass the ball to Gordon with 3 seconds left on the clock while Gordon is double teamed.

PS Pay attention, Klank has taught Shaggy Nocioni to cry to the refs on every call. Klank Hinrich is the man!

KC needs chap stick too much Hind-Lick.

Has anybody even noticed that Hinrich has been gone?

Can anybody give me one good reason why Paxson gave big money to Hinrich and Deng?

Whats next max deals for Noah and Thomas when they come due?

Paxson makes Jerry Angelo seem like Bill Polian!

i hope paxsons reads these blogs cause i'm sure he'll pay the joker the big bucks. probably gordon is a goner and then trade future no 1s for him after gordons a star elsewhere. gooden is gone because hes a good ballplayer for someone else. this team is controlled by jerry and paxson is his p0awn. whoever is dissed here will be rewarded by jerry and paxson has no say in it. nothing will change until the kid speaks out for the injustices of this B team.

Paxson needs to go. That is where improvement of the Bulls begin. Get a veteran GM

Paxson is probably the worse GM in pro sports.

The Bulls have zero repsect around the league since Jordan, Pippen and Phil Jackson left.

"Showcase" Kirk and see if another team wants to take him off the Bulls' hands. I wonder if there is a worse finisher in the league.

Kurt (that's what Vinny calls ya!), get better so we can trade your lazy a$$ out of here. We need some meat down low, not some fruity Duke guard.

Wow. What's with all the hate toward a guy who always played hard and is the best defender on the team.
Someone asked if anyone had noticed he was gone. Obviously the teams who are running up 120 points a game against the Bulls have noticed.

I am not saying he should even start. But he is the only player on the team other than Rose who can do a reasonable imitation of a PG. Or do you prefer to just let Gordon and Hughes either turn the ball over or launch premature shots the whole time Rose is being rested?

What you are failing to understand Stratmaster is that Hinrich is a poing guard who is making starter money. Hinrich is not going to play in front of Rose and Hinrich is not a two guard so the most logical thing to do with Hinrich is to trade him to get back something of value like a big man who can defend that is what a smart GM does but so far Paxson has not been making wise decisions.

Where in the world did KC Johnson make it sound as thought some superstar was coming back?
Most of you guys are complete idiots when it comes to reading a sports section....
KC Johnson is the Bulls BEAT WRITER.
He reports who is coming back, who is injured, etc. He does NOT give a lot of commentary...
THE COLUMNIST's do that!
Hinrich's return DOES cause even more of a logjam at guard and it is an issue since Larry Hughes-less is already complaining about playing time.

Yet another moronic post by the Bulls' moronic Cub fan.
Should KC Johnson NOT have reported that Hinrich was coming back?

Wrong again...
Paxson built this team up pretty quickly after taking over, only to have the misfortune of having a paltry free-agent class available with $15 mil to spend, forcing him to give it to Ben Wallace.
Wallace took the money and "retired" in Chicago. Paxson was then forced to deal his contract and take on two other slugs (Gooden and Hughes) in order to free cap space...
Paxson will get it going again and soon.
He'll probably begin clearing out the useless this week.

Well said!
This is a group of kids on this board who do not understand the game in the least....
Most of them on here actually think Gordon is a positive (if you can believe that) and some even want more playing time for Larry Hughes-less (even harder to believe.)
