The NBA finals showed how pitiful the East is. Sorry Pacman, we need a real GM. You're fired!
Wrong. The finals showed Orlando had match up problems with LA. Any other West team makes it to the finals, Orlando is the champ. For that matter, Cleveland probably would have beaten any of the other Western division run ups/

LA was never going to trade Kobe. The Bulls made a better offer for KG than Boston did. The incompetents in Minnesota did not take it. Not the Bulls fault.

What the bulls need is size,they are too small,and they need to step up their defense,you cant expect a rookie to step in and try to carry a team.

True enough. Which is why so many hope Bosh finds his way to Chicago.

Some big questions though. If Toronto decides Bosh is going to leave, will the Bulls two draft choices and maybe Thomas (Bosh prefers playing PF, so Bulls would probably keep Noah) and an expiring contract be enough to get him?

I love reading comments from fans about trading people or dumping people. There rarely seems to be any thought about the other team involved. This would be a great deal for the Bulls. But Toronto would do it why?
It always amazes me that so-called "fans" always shoot down trades that favor their own team and expect their own team to either get screwed or at the least break even.

Pau Gasol was traded to LA for peanuts as was Kevin Garnett. It happens all the time, it would be about time that it happen in MY favorite teams favor.

I think the problem the Bulls are having on making a trade for a real play maker is the unsurety of where the team is going.

3 years ago it looked as though the Bulls were a season or two from the finals and then the next year they fell flat on their face and I believe that the big name players who are going to be traded still have a say so in where they are going.

I think if the Bulls don't sign Gordon they will still be fine at guard but until they find the established PF and Center they are going to continue to be a mediocre team.

Great points!
The Bulls also made a better offer to Memphis for Gasol, too.
