ROFL. But but but omg the Melo trade was so bad. We gave up all our youth. The great Gallo was going to take us to the promised land.

I am thoroughly enjoying this.


But....but....but....Gallo's youthier and haz potential.

Andrew Bynum said on Friday that he's experienced a setback in his rehab, and now has bone bruises in both his left and right knees.

BTW - Bulls looked pretty pathetic yesterday against the Clips. They look like a lottery team.

well, i think it was expected. They won't even be the same team when Rose comes back. They'll be better for sure, but they won't be as good as they were.

The Knicks have Brewer who was doing a lot of the same things. Fiesty D, awesome cuts to the basket. Gone.
Asik has been a great big in Houston providing very good defense and decent offense. Gone
CJ Watson was their backup point. I don't think the Bulls suffered that hard with Nate taking his place, but he's a short player and a defensive liability.

Those guys did all the little things and they were a part of a potent defensive 2nd unit. They've been replaced by guys that simply can't play the same D and don't really provide a big offensive punch. More pressure is being put on Noah to fill in for Asik's defense, but that's got to be a concern because Noah is injury prone.

Rose isn't fixing all of that and I don't know if the Bulls have the leverage to address the issues. I'd be surprised if they return to their former level over the past 2 years.

They lost their edge by letting all of their bench go. Now they have 5 players making $65M next season and that means they can't sign anybody to help them either.

This team has peaked. Unless they can trade Deng + spare parts for a true #2 option, they are done.

If there isn't any big trade changing the landscape of the east then it'll come down to Miami vs. New York in the east finals. Boston might have a shot at beating us but it'd take them a great series.

hoopsworld's most disappointing players - some familiar names - i'll just post this one

http://www.hoopsworld.com/sunday-topic-most-disappointing-player/
This season, through five games with the Raptors, Fields has only gotten worse. Despite starting every game, Fields has averaged just 2.4 points and 3.2 rebounds. He’s shooting a dreadful 20.8 percent from the field and has yet to hit a three-pointer this season. This season, Fields’ usage rate is a career-low 12.4, yet he’s turning the ball over on a career-high 16.5 percent of possessions. He’s missing wide open jumpers and uncontested lay-ups. Fields’ player efficiency rating through fives game is 1.4, which is by far the lowest of any starting player in NBA and well below the league average of 15. The Raptors are actually better when he’s not on the floor, as evidenced by his -.05 estimated wins added. Not only is Fields’ 20.8 true shooting percentage the lowest on the Raptors, it’s the seventh-lowest among all NBA players. His 20.8 field goal percentage is the lowest of any starting player in the league.

I was looking back at boxes from Friday and figured someone here was watching and could answer a question about Lin:

With 10 seconds left in the 4th Quarter, game tied, huge defensive stand needed from Houston, Douglas came in and replaced Lin. The game went to OT, ended up finishing with a 2 point Blazers win, and Lin never re-entered the game. Douglas subbed him out at the end of the 4th, and Lin never saw a second of floor time in OT.

What happened? Did he get hurt? Was it because Lillard was torching him? Can anyone who watched the game let me know what the deal is with what happened?
