Do believe that Brad Miller is worth $12M per year? How about Tim Thomas at $5M+? How about Hinrich at $11M?

Was there any other knock on Hughes beyond the high salary?

Why was Sefolosha dumped for nothing and Hinrich kept? Another Chandler level gaffe?

What kind of fans are you to ALWAYS have something negative to say even when the Bulls win???? Why not be excited to make the playoffs because there is always some good that comes from that experience. Even if the bulls gets swept, it'll still give the experience and the hunger to want to get back instead of settling for a lottery pick........

Definitely the playoffs. Enough lottery picks and rookies. We have the best rookie by far and the team is improving. The rookie coach was not a success and trading Thabo will turn out to be another Chandler mistake. I say you are never wrong if you keep a serious young player who can defend, steal and is developing into an offensive threat (at OKC). Team chemistry is VERY important.

If they don't make the playoffs, they'll probably be stuck with a pick in the mid teens anyway, so they might as well make the playoffs. Plus it will give pax a little more data on who to keep and who to dump from this roster.

There is plenty of playoff experience on this team already--how much good is that doing the team? The only thing they can possibly learn is what it feels like to be crushed in the first round by a real basketball team.

You know what's gonna help this team? Better players to surround Rose with!

Hunger? Getting swept in the playoffs does not produce hunger. These are all super-competitive guys and they don't need to be taught what hunger is.

I'd be shocked if the Bulls made the playoffs, and even more shocked if they won a game in the playoffs...maybe one day they will reach .500 again...

for the players getting in would be fun. but for the fans, not getting in means a lotto pick and maybe packaging Deng and Hinrich. its a no brainer for the fans.

Can the Bulls at least hire better assistants? These old men are terrible, no wonder our Bigs has no post moves. At least Hinrich is learning from Pete Myers, how to hack, whine and pick up 2 fouls quick.

I would like to see the Bulls sit this postseason out, my heart cant take all this bad coaching.

I still can't believe the word 'playoffs' is included in the same sentence with the Bulls. No team with a record that bad, so far out of first should be in the playoffs. Just another example of rewarding mediocrity.

I would like to see the Bulls play with some form of consistency the remainder of the year, and if that leads to enough victories to make to the playoffs, that is great. If they fall short; they can look to their efforts in games throughout the year. The focus of this season has changed with the trades. I believe they will beat the (short handed)Celtics tomorrow. Then play what is turning out to be a tough OKC team on the road.

Yes.
You must have missed the other knocks on Hughes.
He's stupid.
He only shoots the ball.
He can't pass the ball.
And, he's the worst team player in the history of team sports.

As if you have any idea what these assistants do during practice sessions.
