I really don't get why people are upset about Thabo's progress. To me he is such a non-factor. The idea that trades need to happen to open up time for Thabo... it would be like trading Thomas and Gooden to free up minutes for Gray. They are just not that good and were not even drafted very high anyway. We drafted Thabo to be a bench player, defensive stopper, and semi-polished older player from the draft who supposedly had experience in Europe and didn't need his hand held. What we got was a guy who struggled to produce with bench minutes and merely average at best with starter minutes and at worse a quivering mess. And since we have guys who can be great as starters why have Thabo the back court? His shot is the flattest in the NBA. His defense is good, but as a SG no one needs to guard him from outside since he can't shoot. I guess I wouldn't mind him taking Noc's minutes at the 3 since Noc has been terrible 9 out of the last 10 games and has be playing for no reason through numerous injuries. I don't know. Thabo's fate is so far down the list of things that need to be done I am amazed it keeps getting brought up.
Thank you finally someone agrees with me that Thabo sucks and all the love he gets is definitely misplaced.

<quoted text>Thabo is a terrific talent that needs to develop confidence. The second the Bulls put him out for trade, there will be at least 15 teams trying to get him. It would be a major mistake if the Bulls give up on this kid.
Can you please expand on why you think hes a terrific talent, when he's on the floor he doesnt do anything but put up clankers. I must of missed the game he showed all that potential in.

I think you've missed a lot in your life.
For starters, it's not "must of," it's must have.
Go back and try again before you address me again.

I've noticed that the ones with no grammar skills at all are the only ones that despise Sefalosha. Gee, wonder why that is?

Them wearing black shoes in the regular season is a bad idea I think. The joker level of play from this team for the most part (with apologies to D. Rose) especially doesn't warrant such an arrogant move.

Del Negro should force them to wear pink shoes after every loss.

Gooden is manure.
Hughes is the strongest-smelling manure in the league and it's a shame it stems from Chicago.
You sir, are an idiot.

Gooden is the best option in the post on this team. Even a 3rd grader playing in rec league can tell you that. Apparently you know nothing about basketball, much like your knowledge of White Sox baseball. Mercy.

I guess you weren't aware of Hughes' 3 point barrage as of late. Look it up and learn something. He is WAAAAAAYYYYY better defensively than Gordon. Hell, the white panther Gray is better defensively than Gordon.

Ring it up, doofus.

I appreciate it when you guys call me sir and I encourage more of you to do just that from now on...
I polled a bunch of third graders in the Phoenix area this week and they also said that Gooden is the best option in the Un-Watcha-Bulls' post so you were correct on that.
However, in my opinion, that option must be upgraded immensely, even to the point that the current best option there never see the court again in a Bulls uniform.
Also, you are correct, Hughes IS a better defender than Gordon, but then again, so are those fat guys that dance at halftime. So that option also needs to be upgraded.
I would put my knowledge of White Sox baseball up against pretty much anyone, which is kind of embarrassing since I should have been learning about more important things throughout all these years. However, I have made a living as a sportswriter and covered MLB for a few years so it has paid off.

2 out of 4 points aint bad, I suppose.

Your lack of knowledge of the White Sox is embarrassing, so please stuff your piehole and do us all a favor...

While I'm not one to chastize people for improper grammar, I feel I should at least point out that your attempts at belittling other's grammar is insignificant when yours is also error-prone.

It seems that Sefolosha looks like a great basketball player, but just isn't confident or aggressive enough to assert his will and therefore succeed consistently. I'm willing to give him more time, however, as long as he doesn't cost much $. Don't make it a priority to give him a lot of playing time, but also don't forget that he's on the bench, and should be given some opportunities during lulls in the game.

You're wrong yet again. Sefalosha should be the starting 2-guard. Gordon comes off the bench until the Un-Watcha-Bulls can deal him away.
