When our scorers are scoring, Kirk is fine. Without Rose, we pretty much have a bunch of secondary scorers who score around league average efficiency (Boozer much better than that recently). So as long as they maintain that, via Kirk letting them get their shots, and at significant enough volume, we are going to win more games than not, because treading water on offense combined with top 4 elite defense, puts you decently ahead of most average teams.
It's just you don't get this every night, maybe only 50% of the time, the other 50% we struggle to get enough quality points and high percentage looks, and then suddenly Kirk can contribute mightily to big droughts since he can offer virtually no relief. That relief comes in the form of Nate Robinson often enough (or rolling the dice that he can offer it), but the default M.O of Thibs and the team is not to assume that scorers are going to suck any given night, and that makes a lot of sense.
Anyway just catching up to the replay now via ESPN and I know its gonna end great and having Hubie call a Bulls win and praise our better points, is always a pleasure.
