Interim Coach Jim Boylan says, "I certainly believe we still have a run... And the players do too." A run for what? Was watching the Lakers @ Phoenix game which the Lakers won placing them second in the Western Conference, first in their division. Amazing what a good coach and a star player can do. Just in case anyone's interested, the line on Pau Gasol, 34 minutes 29 points. Acquired for 2 bench warmers and draft picks. While the "we have a run" Bulls couldn't offer anything better than that to acquire this kindof talent. Pitiful. And BTW, Kobe (with torn ligaments in his finger) 41 points in 45 minutes. All this @ the 37-17 Phoenix Suns arena, not the 24-30 New Jersey Nets arena. I agree JB, the Bulls are running. Right into an early vacation and the lottery.

Well only a half a season left in one that was over long ago. Save your money and time fans. Get out and enjoy things that are less annoying. Spring is in the Air :)

I watched last nights game. Bulls are nice guys and won't win in the NBA. No point guard and no inside scorer. They have to play their 58 million dollar man, but hinrich dribbles too much and doesn't make good decisions when dishing off. to win, this team must be broken up. but mgmt likes their guys. fans are stuck with what we got.

I too was watching the Lakers @ Suns game which was very good. During the middle of the game I flipped on the Bulls-Nets game in OT just in time to hear King and Kerr complaining about the officiating ... again. I watched the few remaining seconds of awful basketball and it is obvious how far the Bulls are from being a decent team.

As I have been saying since Skiles was axed they have a roster full of garbage that nobody wants along with Boylan a coach nobody wants.

Thankfully baseball season is starting up and the Bulls will play out the string in anonymity as the train runs over the cliff. That is the only run they have left in this debacle of a season.

Good post. Here's a word to the wise, or to anyone who will listen. 02/22/08 Denver @ Bulls. Weather in Chicago expected hi 29 lo 20. Not too bad for a February in Chicago. STAY HOME and start enjoying the coming spring weather! STOP PAYING GOOD MONEY TO SEE THAT CRAP IN THE UNITED CENTER!! I am from Chicago. Born and raised. Love the town and the people. An NIU alum. The sports in that town is a POOR RESPRESENTATION AT BEST of it's denizens. Therefore, since they don't care about us, we shouldn't care about them. QUITE SUPPORTING THAT MEDIOCRITY!! The Bulls are forcing me to say something I thought I would never say in my lifetime ... GO LAKERS!

Gordon was 5-15 a guess his wrist is back to normal. I was laughing when the ESPN guys were predicting them to be eastern Conf Champs this summer cause apperantly they have never seen this team in a playoff game! Horrible they really on there gaurds and the Gaurds crumble cause Gordon sucks and Kirk isn't good enough to lead a team. Gordon was exposed in the playoffs last year for what he is a guy who gives up way more points than he scores!

Bulls are Crap and worst part is they are going nowhere for quite a while. That is depressing and the fact that Pax was to blinded by his love of "His" creation to see their glaring needs is just pathetic... Give me the Hornets GM atleast he knows how to round out a starting five! Adding Bonzi is a good cheap addition for them.

I promised I wouldn't watch and I didn't (you hear that sponsors and Paxson?). I read the box score on the bulls website a couple of times in the second half. and as usual, boylan (hopefully the last 30 games of his NBA career) has Gordon in the game when the guy is making 35% of his shots. He has Wallace out there getting the same number of rebounds in more time than others out there who are not supposed to be able to rebound. he has gray sitting on the bench. granted- he is a slowpoke, but figure out how to use him or go home and collect your pension.
Sefalosha should continue to start the rest of year and see if he develops. The Joker should be starting, too.
There is not one person on this team who should consider himself a lock to be here next year. That's because Joe Smith is the only one deserving but he will either retire or go somewhere else where they have a plan.

Larry, good post. Let me make a suggestion. The next time the Bulls are in town, check the attendance figures to see if this train wreck of a team is still playing to a full house. Maybe someone should take an exit poll asking why ANYONE would want to pay to see Gordon shoot 5 for 15. Or watch the 60 million dollar man grab a whooping 5 rebounds and score 4 points.

Here goes the trade deadline as Johnny Jumpshot sits there with that stupid look on his face thinking about Gordon, Deng and Hinrich.

Yeah I have no clue how these people can keep going to the games??? It is just painfull to watch let alone paying to see it! It is like paying someone to kick you in the nuts...

You want a better team stop selling out the damn UC!
