maybe paxson can put a trade together and get duhon? maybe he can trade the entire team for tiger woods. maybe the owner doesn't care what happens. maybe its time for this team to be sold. maybe the fans shouldn't care. man this team sucks.

At least Hughes didn't play. Get him out of here, he's a worthless, selfish bum who should be unemployed. UGH.

The offense actually looked good parts of the game with ball movement but it's the same story .... when the shots aren't falling they don't win. More often than not these Bulls have bad shooting nights than good.

Hinrich was outplayed by his old back up. I was really hoping that when Kirk came back so would his jumper. Looks like he is back to clanking shots. Again...dumb plays and turn overs cost us the game.

I don't think there are any trades out there that can help this team. Right now the only asset we have is Rose and little by little I see his game turning into Gordons. Driving into the lane and either lofting up a floater or turning the ball over.

I don't think anyone should blame on Rose's performance. He has fought so hard for the Bulls as a rookie and helps to win more games. What else can we ask from such a great kid? Just keep up all your good efforts and great personality, and ignore the nonsense criticism, D Rose! Your loyal fan from Memphis will always support you and pray for you.

Why are the Bulls' fan so mean? I don't think Bulls are that bad to deserve all the criticisms. Remember that they have the ability to beat Cavaliers. Give them chance and encouragement instead of all the harsh criticisms. Go Bulls! Just continue to fight hard and share the balls, there will be more games to win.

The Bulls are pathetic. Vinnie has high school rules where the players have to fit within his little box. He'll learn and get better. That said, it is Paxon and Reinsdorf holding back this team from making progress. They can be dreadful at times.

I agree! But also what are the players thinking? Their basketball IQ is very low. First, with the selfishness of not giving the ball to Rose with under a minute left. Tyrus dribbles tries to run a fastbreak and dishes to Hinrich for a three instead of running down the shot clock. And Second the Ben Gordon shot. Man dish it off if you are covered. You had like 8 seconds when you shot it. I would think you would want to get a better shot and also melt the clock so the Knicks wouldn't get a good look at the basket if you are going for the win. Finally, I know they had lost but what's up with that stupid pass by Thomas to end the game. It was sad. C'mon get someone to coach the team. This is ridiculous!

Um, Nate, Hinrich shot 5-for-10 today and is shooting 44.4% since he came back from his injury. Not great, but well above his career mark. He also had 7 assists today, giving him 22 assists to just 6 turnovers since his return. If you want to complain about him, I'd focus on his defense against Duhon. Kirk's defense has been good since he came back, but for some reason he couldn't stop the less than speedy Duhon from getting to the basket. The Knicks used a ton of picks to free up their PG and the Bulls were unable to keep Du from turning the corner and getting to the rim.

Meanwhile, I think Ben Gordon has lost his touch playing at the Garden. He has shot the ball horribly in 3 of his last 5 games at MSG. And that forced 3-pointer with David Lee right in his face on the Bulls' last possession was just as dumb, if not dumber, than Hinrich taking that open 3-pointer rather than working the clock with the Bulls hanging onto a 1-point lead.

Duhon 12.1 PPG 42% 8.1 assists per game....around 3 million per year!
Duhon plays D with speed and quickness.
Clueless Pax over paid for the over rated clock eating Kapt of Klank
Hinrich...10 million per year...
The Spurs and Knicks gave Klank wind burn as they blew by the Klankster who is a career inconsistent streak shooter.
Klank plays D in Skiles system. Skiles is gone and NBA has caught up to the slow footed Hinrich.
No GM with half a brain will trade for the Kapt of Klank!!!!!!!!!!

<quoted text>So we're stupid enough to blame Larry Hughes for contributing to this loss when he didn't even play? You are brain-dead. Hughes needs to be on the court; not spectating. This Bulls team can't even get to 100 points; and they've got the greatest rookie of all time, Derrick Rose. Give me a break. Horace, you need to stop swilling that hair tonic and get sober. The Bulls problems aren't with Hughes. They are top to bottom, owner, GM, coaching, players, draft assessment, development, game plan, contract negotiation, etc. I say Mr. Reinsdorf should go get himself someone who has a more workable concept for talent acquisition. You need some players with talent and a fire-passion to win. These guys are mopes and apologists, one and all.
Hey Uncle Rico, you make some good points. But PLEASE don't say Rose is the "greatest rookie of all time." You lose all credibility with that one. Whoops, my bad, you already did in many other previous posts.


P.S. I agree with you about Hughes, they should have made a way to make it work since they are paying the slug. It certainly couldn't hurt in the standings. And it certainly would not have been a long term issue with Rose.

Cut Hughes now.Why not just pay him to go away?They have done this before(Tim Thomas)comes to mind.He will not play anymore anyway.He has no value other than our junk and bad contract for yours.Oh wait that is how they ended up with the great Larry to begin with!!!The NBA cap as constructed blows.

John Paxson is the problem. He simply can't evaluate talent. Why would anyone commit 72 millon dollars to a 6' 9" player (Luol Deng)who insists on playing underneath the rim. Then there is Ben Gordon who never saw a shot that he didn't like, also the next pass that he throws to a team mate will be the first. We have Hinrich who couldn't hit lake michigan with a basketball if he was out there in a boat, I won't even mention Noah & Thomas because I could go on and on.
