If he keeps developing his game, Tyrus Thomas has a chance to be a skinnier Ben Wallace that can score 14 or 15 points a game.

Maybe we have to give the Bulls some credit for being patient with Tyrus. It looks like he's developing into a very good player. And he is still quite young. It's great to see a player who loves to play defense, but also can give us some exciting highlight reels with his offensive play.

Oh well, i guess you can't expect everything. Thomas should realize that just because his play has improved (and it really has), it doesn't mean though, that your mouth must improve as well. Obviously Tyrus is young but calling out LeBron and the Cavs, or anyone else for that matter is for a lack of a better word, just plain stupid.

Anyways, kudos to the team for making the playoffs. I didn't see that coming when the season cranked up. For all the Del Negro haters, i suppose he's showed he's not as horrible a coach as some have been hollering that he is. Face it folks, he's not a Scott Skiles type coach, in that defense comes before anything else. Del Negro likes putting points on the board, and as long as his team can put more points than their opponents on the board, that's what counts.

My question is: What do the Bulls do with Luol Deng next year?

If everyone feels that Tyrus is finally starting to reach his potential, it would make little sense to put him on the bench behind Deng. I suppose the Bulls could let Gordon walk and then play Salmons at the shooting guard and have Deng play small forward.

Personally, I'd rather keep Gordon and have Deng traded.

The problem with that style is it doesn't take you far in the playoffs. It is a regular season strategy.

An article referring to a nice thing the Bulls have earned, and of course there are few comments. Where are all the negative know-it-alls?

A nice job by John and Vinny down the stretch. Right moves, players responding......

Way to go Bulls. This is a start, and a good one.
