Chicago Bulls could profit from Los Angeles Clippers draft posi...

The Bulls sat out the NBA draft lottery for just the second time in 11 years, but that doesn't mean Tuesday night's proceedings didn't have potential impact for them. Full Story

Here's the analogy I told my co-worker Bulls fan about BG.
I had this girlfriend in college. Veeeeeery cute. Exciting as he11 between the sheets. But she was dumb as a box of rocks... I dated her for a little too long, never have regretted the relationship one bit, but there was a time we just had to break up so that we could each move on to bigger and better things.
That's BG and the Bulls. He's good for a few thrills on a team that's young and dumb, it was great while it lasted, but if you're gonna compete for the Championship you can't have BG playing 30-something minutes a game and consuming 20% of your salary cap.
The difference between your girlfriend and Gordon is that Gordon would never do anything to help satisfy you sexually.

You're thinking of the microwave... Vinny Johnson...
BG won't be had for cheap.. him and his agent have already committed to making him as much cash as possible, and some mediocre team that needs to put arses in the seats with an exciting player, but isn't ready to win yet, will pay him.
Kind've like the Bulls did with Jalen Rose during the dark ages.
Gordon will likely end up with the Clippers or the Knicks or one of those incredibly stupid teams.

Why not trade draft picks and Deng for Griffin?

Not true. Keeping both of them together would be the best idea. Rose has a lot he can learn from Hinrich like how to play defense, controlling the tempo at the PG spot, being an on-the-floor leader, etc. Plus, Hinrich is versatile enough to play 1 and 2. Hinrich is not a luxury, he is definitely a necessity.
A necessity for what? Bulls have had PGs playing the SG position for too long. Scottie warned that midgets in the backcourt were a plan for failure. If you want a combo guard playing SG, Pax should have kept Shannon Brown or , better yet, Sefolosha, who will be second team NBA all defense SG in the next couple of years.

Camby is a very good rebounder and defender but he does NOTHING to help with the offensive woes in the low post. And the Clippers are NOT trading Kaman -- why would they trade the only center they have who can score? Kaman and Griffin would be a good fit for the Clippers. The player the Clippers want to trade is Randolph -- and the Bulls would beyond stupid to trade for a headcase, me-first player who is a lack hole on offense.
Also, why would the Clippers trade for Hinrich when they already are paying BARON DAVIS a ton of money to be their starting PG and they have Eric Gordon -- coming off a very nice rookie season -- to be their starting SG. Donald Sterling is CHEAP. He isn't going to pay Kirk $9 million to come off the bench.
Finally, Hinrich is a very valuable part of the Bulls. Can we please stop trying to trade him to teams that do NOT need a starting PG? In fact, stop trying to trade him at all, unless it is going to be in a deal for a superstar (which would eliminate anyone on the Clippers)
Reinsdorf wont pay him that either. To play what? Salmons is the SG now. Enough with the midgets at SG. Pay him off and let him go coach Kansas to the final four. Kirk would be and will eventually a top college coach.

The Bulls need to focus on getting a true center with some post moves and interior defense. Maybe some of the Ben Gordon money could help when he bails. Noah & Tyrus will get their acts together at the 4 spot. Losing Hinrich would leave D-Rose stranded with the offensive & defensive load. Rondo showed that Rose ain't quite there yet.
NOt if you got a tall combo guard like someone available: Jamal Crawford. Nelson likes shrimps. Maybe he takes Hinrich.

Haven't you heard the phrase,'He ain't worth a Deng?"
Luol has no trade value at the moment. If he comes back & shows the form he had a few years ago, maybe...

At least the new GM wants 2 sign Gordon. That is good news.

"The promotion of Gar Forman to general manager of the Chicago Bulls publicly formalizes a successful formula that has been evolving for some time," chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said. "

Can somebody please fill me in on what that SUCCESS was?

Your co-worker stood there while you told this story? Where do you work?
When the "experts" had the Bulls as a darkhorse pick to win the EC, your ex girlfriend/BG was the starting SG.
Maybe a big man who has one offensive move that isn't "running the court" would make more of a difference than the shooting guard. Maybe even a coach with an offensive system?
None of the experts opinions lined up with your analogy. Which is terrible.

Why make a trade that doesn't move you into the next playoff round?
With Kaman, Perkins doesn't look like an all star and the Bulls do win the series. Kaman wouldn't have fumbled away 60% of the passes thrown to him in the paint.

You're right! I wasn't sold on Ben Gordon, but then you reminded me that he started for a team that someone (incorrectly) thought could win the East in a weak year. Give the man every penny he wants!

Yeah, that same weak conference had the defending champs. That someone was a lot of someones. I know you didn't believe it for a minute because you picked Cleveland to beat the Pistons that year. You knew the Bulls had no shot but Cleveland would be unbeatable..Whatever..
