Nothing the Bulls do will off set the departure of Ben Gordon.

I too cheated on my SAT's and that was before the recognition of my raw, undeniable talent as a waiter. And look at me know, making a few bucks an hour, under declaring tips, and getting drunk on almost a nightly basis. I'd say I am living the dream, just as Rose is. Rose, don't let the dream killers get in your way. Those who can, DO. Those who can't, hate! Word... I'll bet you're a DAM GOOD WAITER.

If the rumors last year revolving around Heinrich to Minnesota were very serious and Chicago wanted to revisit them then why not see if Minnesota wanted to go down that road again. Since Minnesota picked up the fifth pick in the draft from Washington then see if they wanted to send the number 6 pick to Chicago for Heinrich and the number 16 pick. I'm sure that Minnesota and Chicago could build on this, but I see the trade working out for both teams.

Here's how I see it:
Minnesota gets their PG, plus a later 1 Round pick (they don't want to pay two top ten picks.)
Chicago gets to move up and take either a big guard in Tyreke Evans or another post player in Jordan Hill. They also could package something with the 26th pick to move up or move down.

Henderson would be a great player for The Bulls. I hope they get a Big Man. Rose should be working on his range and touch. Noah needs to work on a 10 foot shot. Go Bulls.
Henderson is another Duke system player and just like Florida QB's they donot translate into the professional ranks. I mis-spoke earlier the players I would like to see are Earl Clark and Jodie Meeks. Noah could get by with a good jump hook.

I think Henderson would be a great fit especially if Gordon goes. He is taller a better defender and can create. I would love to add them if he is there at 11 the Bulls should package both their picks to the Nets to pick him up. In my mind he is one of the best SG's in this class I would love to see him in a Bulls uniform. I think it is clear that you rarely if ever get a big man through the draft that can contribute right away, therefore we should trade for a PF and in my mind Thomas has to go Im sorry he is not the type of PF that helps your team win championships.

I think the draft sent a message to Paxson and Tyrus Thomas, for that matter Deng also but Deng's contract is a albatross. I would like to see Salmons more are shooting guard.

I would recommend learning better sentence structure.
Seriously, it doesn't help talking down education when your point doesn't read well.
But I should digress to counter your point. Gates went to a primary school that contained computers. This is decades before many of the best public schools in the country had them. In short, Gates was exposed to computer technology long before most people. Exploiting that technology didn't require him to finish off his degree. He had already figured out his angle and niche.
I did not know that perfect use of words was required on here next time I will get the chat site english to check my statement and sentence structure and as for gates hmmm was he not accused of Stealing from the apple people to advance his career?
