KC, how much is Reinsdorf paying you? This team stinks. You are an arse kissing apologist for this team. You are either an overly optimistic doofus or a paid shill of the Chicago Bulls. Paxson has made horrible moves, Hughes is terrible, Gooden stinks, Nocioni is a shell of his former self, Gordon is a one trick pony, Deng is stealing money, on and on and on. Keep it real and try actually analyzing the reality of the current situation instead of your revisionist puppies and rainbows version of what is happening with the Bulls. You suck.

Phoenix troubles in the West mean Pax needs to make a phone call. Stoudemire is clearly talking his way out of Phoenix. KG would have been great for the Bulls Gasol NO; Stoudemire YES. Rose and Stoudemire would be a nice duo for the Bulls for years to come. Whatever Phx wants outside of Rose and Gordon the Bulls should give up and there dar I say it; their 2010 first round draft pick.

KC,
I believe the actual proposal for Kevin Garnett in 2006 was Tyson Chandler, Luol Deng, and the #2 pick which became LaMarcus Aldridge. That pick could have easily been Brandon Roy. Kevin McHale chose to trade Garnett a year later for Al Jefferson and junk. Good move McHale!
Paxson tried to get Garnett twice, McHale said no. He tried to get Gasol twice, Memphis was unreasonable. I believe on the 2nd offer the Bulls offered Nocioni and someone else. Memphis ended up trading Gasol for Kwame Brown. One of the worst trades in sports history;strictly a salary dump. Paxson also tried to trade for Kobe Bryant. Kobe wanted to play with Deng, the Lakers wanted Deng in exchange for Kobe. Kobe had a no-trade clause and it just didn't happen. Hardly Paxson's fault. Paxson's worst move was trading the #2 pick for Tyrus Thomas. And that may not turn out to be so bad. Tyrus is only 22 years old, he may actually play to this potential one day.

I wonder what Paxson does with all his free time? I mean it probably took him ten fifteen minutes tops to put together a checklist for next offseason.
1. Overpay Ben Gordon
2. Overpay Gooden
3. Send the same guy to the lottery as last year.
4. Blow another lottery pick.
5. Whiff on a big trade or two.

There the perfect Paxson offseason plan!

Although if we could only convince him that Krause actually drafted everyone on the team but Rose they would all be gone by next season!

I know you are "reluctant" to put da smack down to paxson because you are worried abot your access to the Bulls buffet Reinsdorf sets out for you media mopes. But it's TIME you chronicled the MESS Paxson has made of this team.
This team is put together in the same vein as Memphis, Minnesota or the LA Clippers. No ryhme or reason. Just a bunch of bodies, contracts etc,.
PAXSON should be "reamed" over how he has done nothing to improve this team the last 5 years. Paxson has been given a pass by the media! You guys would have "skewered" Krause, if he ran the team the way Paxson has.
I feel sorry for Rose. He's out there playing his heart out. he Throws a simple pass to Noah, and he either bobbles the pass, or brings the ball down low and it gets slapped away. Or rose throws a pass to Deng, Gordon Gooden or Hughes and the ball dissappears.

Come on KC! It's time to take a good(but CRITICAL) look at Paxson...
