It's hard enough to win in the NBA if you have all 5 starters playing well; however when you have ZERO presence in the post, ie NOAH, you have no chance. Someone please call GM Paxon who must be on a season long cruise in the islands, and start Gooden, and substitute Grey at center from now on. Then perhaps even find a low post scorer and rebounder in the free agent market, if possible, or see what another disillusioned GM might GIVE FOR NOAH.

$500 bucks for 10 minutes?? Whew lol, even for the rich boys, that sounds pretty steep for 10 minutes. No doubt that Del Negro would look to Gooden for inside scoring, as he has to get it from somewhere's. Is there a more disspointing player this season than Luol Deng? And, unlike the NFL or MLB, in the NBA where the squads are so small, one player having such a down year can really hurt a team. And, what makes it even worse for the Bulls is, i'm not sure it's just a down season, but more a sign of things to come for this guy.

Rod, another excellent post. Don't worry, his game will remarkably improve once his lucretive contract nears completion. He just seems to disappear during a game (since he got his $$$) and can't string together two good games in a row. This season Deng has turned into just an average bench player at best.

I agree that while Noah has been disappointing, no one expected him to be a star and he is still maturing. Deng on the other hand is the one we should be wondering about.
