He should be thankful 2 be employed in the NBA. He reminds me of Rex Grossman. We all know where is is NOW.

I do not understand why Hinrich is willing to settle for a backup PG role (and backup SG/SF). He can start on at least 15 other teams. People settle for a backup role because they cannot start on other teams. Unlike some other professional (where you can be still in your prime in your 50, 60 or even 70), an athlete career is very short. How many years can he still play at a high level as a starter? could be as short as 3 years (see S-Francis). This is just another example showing Hinrich is lack of competitive spirit and has a loser mentality (Rose wants to be MVP, while Hinrich does not mind being the next E-Snow). Are you kidding me? He is also willing to be the backup of Gordon (who is only half as good as Hinrich). I have never seen another pro athlete has as low self-esteem as Hinrich.

Ask for a trade this off-season and STAND UP FOR YOURSELF for once for God sakes. Letting people misuse you, hinder your career and prevent you from reaching your potential is NOT unselfish or being professional; this is = stupidity,= unprofessional (asking anyone who are working in a competitive field), and = losing mentality.

And what would any thread be without a completely asinine post from Captain Sunshine!

I'm wondering too how Hinrich can be happy sitting behind a guy like Rose, who fumbled all over himself the other day...
Had Hinrich been playing Rose's minutes, the Bulls might be UP 2-1 in this series.

You know nothing about basketball, do you? Don't say you do, because your post proves otherwise.
Hincrich is the best defensive guard under 6'5" in the entire league.
But, of course since you don't really know what's going on in the game, you wouldn't see a trivial little thing like the best defensive player on the team.

Seriously? How quickly people forget how consistently good he was in so many facets of the game.
