Kirk is an excellent team player. He's willing to do whatever it takes to help this team win. I don't care if he's an expensive back up, better then being a team cancer.

I agree with RKA comments regarding Kirk. In addition he does bring energy and is tenacious in defending the opponents. Also, I thought Rosenbloom's comment that Kirk regained his professionalism was not only a cheap shot but just plain nasty.

I love the Bulls. Each time they win it seems unreal. The team is playing well enough to win. I hope the D gets better for the playoffs. Rose is a star. He must hit his jump shot to be a real threat. Noah must5 rebound at all cost, and Tyrus Thomas must continue to throw all shots. Go Bulls, Go!

I agree with your comment. If, Kirk plays well he will get the time. Gordon dose not start games well. Kirk must score fast and big. He is the best lead defender in the league.

I agree with you Nolo. Noah and Thomas are potential big time players in the NBA and Rose is definitely a no-miss! The NBA is very tough, it takes time for young players to mature. Keep the nucleus, so they gain the experience playing together. PATIENCE!!!!

Let's see how they do against Miami. Being mistreated by Wade last game, I'll be more confident if they punish the guy.

I would like to see Hinrich guard Wade for most of the game. He always did a good job on him and he couldn't be any worse than BG.

Hinrich has value and I hope the Bulls trade him for a big that can rebound and play defense.

Nada, it is obvious that you care very much, probably more than anyone here.

Are you people crazy ! When Hinrich was starting 97% of the time he wasn't putting numbers up like this. Hinrich is a good solid back up for this Bulls team. I would keep him as well, but lets not go crazy with one game. The last big scoring game he had was the Bucks game, yes he is our best defender, but he is not going to shoot like that everynight. Remember he did take 23 shots the other night.

So what if he comes off the bench, BG had to deal with it & he always has been a pro, you have never seen him do anything disrespectful or disruptive to the team at all. Anyway Gordon should continue to start, Hinrich is better coming off the bench, bc if the team gets sloppy out on the floor, Hinrich is better at calming the team down & putting plazyers in the right spot (When he is not calling his own # of course).
Simple fact is he can't do what Gordon does, you can always improve on defense as Gordon should, but you can't teach that scoring ability Gordon has, especially for his size when he is being guarded by the opponents best tall defender.

Get rid of Deng send him overseas & let anothe rteam pick up his contract.

Its clear to see that Deng was never needed on this team to win. Just imagine Thabo would still be here if Dend wasn't. lol

Thanks, this comment was really necessary. Someone always has to take it to that.

Remember, those media types also gush all over a another guy who doesn't have a clue about what the heck he is doing.....
