Lindsey Hunter embraces mentoring role with Bulls

Full story: Chicago Tribune

During Lindsey Hunter 's rookie season with the 1993-94 Pistons, he practiced against Joe Dumars and Isiah Thomas every day and, initially, avoided Bill Laimbeer because he seemed so unapproachable.

If the bulls guarantee Lindsey Hunter for the rest of the season, that would be another in a long line of Paxson mistakes. They need a backup point guard who can penetrate and run an offense. They need to scour the D league or Europe and find that guard. Lindsey might be a nice guy, but he has nothing left in the tank. If the best John Paxson can do is sign Lindsey Hunter, then Paxs is not a qualified GM, and should be terminated.

Lindsey Hunter, your new Bulls coach 2011. And he'll still be playing part-time.

What a joke. Hunter is playing the bulls front office. He can't play so he's trying to do whatever he can to get paid. Hinrich and Gordon have been in the league long enough to mentor Rose.

Paxson is a joke of a GM.

I like having Hunter on this team, the rest of them except for of course Rose, Gordon and Nocioni can go away, please. I cannot watch this team, their offense is bad, their defense does not exist, their coach may as well not exist. We have 2 guys around 7 feet tall who can't or won't dunk .

I like Pax, but he is doing a terrible job, this team stinks.

Here we go again--another "feel good" Bulls article from KC Johnson. When are we going to get some critical analysis rather than just warmed over PR pieces from the Bulls marketing department.

Why no mention of the situation reported by ESPN 1000 last night regarding Rose being disgusted in the huddle with del Negro in the last game during the timeout with 24 seconds left?

Why do we just get feel good articles?

Lindsey Hunter should go back to the Detroit Pistons for the 2009-10 NBA Season.

The Bulls have a good backup point guard.
His name is Kirk Hinrich.
Unfortunately, the coaching staff is deciding to go with two small 2-guards.

It's KC's job to write this stuff.
If you want critical articles, look to the columnists.

i'm good. well i'm telling everyone that the Bulls will make the playoffs, probably with a sub 500 record, because the eastern conference is so weak. but the Bulls could land Cleveland in the 1st round. that would be the Cavs worst nightmare. anyway i'm predicting Lebron will end up in NY, so the Knicks will be immediate contenders. ignore Nada, he is in the process of tearing into Cub fans, because baseball is right around the corner. I get the impression that Nada is getting bored with the NBA, especially the Bulls. Nada's not a racist, but he does have a touch of sarcasm.
