Considering he suffered a slight sprain atop his left foot the last time he dunked, some might speculate Derrick Rose could be skittish the next time he sees an opportunity to wreck the rim.

Tiffany, since you and I never played NBA basketball, neither of us are qualified to comment on it. Let's talk about the weather. It's nice and sunny in Chicago. No wait, it's snowing now.
Try a weather board, Greg.
Take Tiffany with you so she can let Larry Hughes know where the nation's best weather is since he'll be retired pretty soon.

We'll see real quickly if the Bulls have turned some sort of corner, or just feasted on a couple of terrible teams and an unsuspecting one. If the Bulls can go into Houston and New Orleans and win, then maybe there's something finally going on. Those are two teams the Bulls always struggle with.
I'd like to believe these players are finally showing a little pride, and intend to prove to Reinsdorf that they're not complete flops. Those comments that Reinsdorf made, i still believe were meant more as a sign that he still believes in Paxson, or that he's really disapointed in the players efforts. It just doesn't make a lick of sense that they were directed towards the coaching staff, as the coaches haven't been in place long enough to prove anything.
What scares me is this: What if the Bulls get consistent enough to beat enough bad teams and surprise a few good teams enough times to sneak into the playoffs? Will Pax get that false since of security again and continue to acquire mis-matched talent as opposed to filling the holes that this team still has?

The nation's best weather is probably in Tempe, Arizona so Larry and Tiff will be hanging out with Nada.

so they pulled one game out of their butts vs an average team and beat two other disaster teams. Big whoop. We'll get smashed by the rockets (if they have their stars playing) and then it will be back to the loosing ways. I hate saying that about my bulls but it's true.

I only hope for more disaster so that I can see the back of paxson. That dude who I used to love as a player has no clue as a GM.

<quoted text>The hell with Rose learning how to hang onto the rim after he dunks.
As the team's point guard, Rose needs to learn to involve his teammates, build up his assist totals and let the game come to him more.
So far, he's been disappointingly ineffective.
dude you are just dumb... deng is the one thats not doing anything... like i said months ago he wont score 30 points not once this season and he makes more money that ginobli... instead of posting here go give your beloved boyfriend deng some head and tell him how great you think he is then maybe he will try to earn that 70+ mil

I was wrong. I thought Beasley would be the better pick for the Bulls - as they already had plenty of guards and needed a big man up front. The knucklehead who hosts CTL WAS right: Beasley IS a knucklehead. Rose is a rose. The hometown kid was the right pick after all.

Rose needs to "hang" on to the rim(after a dunk) untill he gets his feet underneath him, before he descends back to the floor. Steady himself if you will. He landed awkwardly on both dunks...
More importantly, I look at the Bulls and see a direct correlation between how Noah and Thomas plays.
When Noah is rebounding, hustling. This team is not 1/2 bad. When Tyrus Thomas blocks shots and rebounds, this team is "in" most games.
It's uncanny how when Tyrus plays under-controll, how well the teams does. L-O-L you can count on Tyrus to get out of control(once or thrice) every game. Throw up an "Ill" advised shot, or go stumbling through the lane, turning over the ball, inevitably, Vinny takes him out of the game. The Bulls really need his shot-blocking prowess EVERY GAME.
Now If the Bulls can get Heinrich from dribbling the air out the ball, Deng from taking shots outside the offense, and Gordon from turning the ball over, the Bulls will be better the 2nd half. It's a LOT to ask of a team that has played so poorly thus far. But if you look around the league, there's about 6 elite teams and then the rest of the league.
Ha Ha!!! LOL! Yeah somebody please get TT a valium!

I cant understand why the after all these years the Bulls cant find a big man. If you fire Paxson then you need to fire whoever the scouts are too. This organization just seems to have a hard time developing the players they bring in.

I hope the Bulls win tonight. They are playing well without the strong frontline. Perhaps we could pick-up a strong big man to rebound. Then we can make the playoffs.
