I've always noticed that people who start a sentence with "I've always noticed" tend not to say anything that makes sense after that statement.

It's just something I've always noticed.

The VDN bandwagon is growing, which is baffling. This team and defense should not be mentioned in the same paragraph. It would not have taken much on the defensive side of the ball to make this a much better team. Average players were made to look like all-stars this series and people are saying VDN did a good job with what he had. That is complete non-sense. No offensive structure, no defensive structure but he did a good job?? I guess he gets credit for making it to the games. This team has zero post presence also. For them to have made it this far is mind boggling. BG is probably gone and Kirk is going to start to lobby for a trade because knows he is on the bench and only a complete idiot would want him at the 2g spot. This team needs a coach. If possible keep the gaurd rotation as is, keep Salmons at small forward and work on getting a post guy with even moderate offensive talent, send VDN to a coaching clinic and the Bulls will be much better come playoff time next season. Tyrus is a bench player. What a waste of a #4 pick. Amare would have made a huge difference. He doesn't have sf skills and it too little to play PF effectively.
atldre, you are by far the best and most logical poster here!

Thomas is a real problem for paxton,on i hand he`s got unquestionable talent to get better.On the other hand,is he to lazy to work it out?There`s something about this kid that missing,the Bulls win that series,if Freaking Thomas justs rebounds the basketball.He can jump through the roof and he got out rebounded by the opposing 6-1 point guard 3 to i,there`s something really wrong with that picture!This kid wants to score and that`s not what this team needs from him,trade him to the Western conference,that`s where he belongs!

I just had to add a comment on game 7 and Vinny..

Why wasn't Tyrus Thomas playing in the 4th quarter??
He was limiting Big Baby to shooting from the outside??
Big baby would'nt even try to go over Tyrus.
Brad Miller was cold and couldnt stop anything inside.
While I dont like Tyrus attitude at times , he was playing better and scoring,
Boston limited in BIG men so what does Vinny do --GO SMALL.
Where was Tim Thomas ?
Why not try some low post moves with Gray.
Use Tyrus,Noah,Tim Thomas at the same time. What does Vinny do ?
Play 4 guard lineup in 4th quarater, while Tyrus on bench and Big Baby scoring on layup and stuffs over Brad,
Other Boston guys (Pierce now driving the basket for fouls or layups.

Why was Tyrus on bench ..?? Because when Vinny took him out in the third quarter , Tyrus slapped Vinny on the butt as he went to bench.. Thats why.. and instead of Vinny talking to Tyrus about it, he sends Hunter down to tell Tyrus something.

So its Vinny's ego ot hurt feelings that are more important than winning the 7th game.. Shame on you Vinny... Bulls Brass
FIRE this GUY.. He has NO strategy after time outs and looks
dumbfounded on the sidw lines.. FIRE HIM PLEASE!!!!

REFLECT ON PLAYING DEFENSE EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. SORRY I AM SHOUTING, BUT I AM GERMAN AND I LIKE TO YELL! ARGUING ITALIANS LIKE VINCENT THE BLACK SHOULD GET THAT.
At least Vinny finally got a haircut and left the Charles in Charge look in the 1980s where it belongs.

Maybe Vinny can now get Noah to get a haircut so he looks human.
