Thanks Doug, loved the KC show. Will be interesting at the trade deadline with Lauri.


Call me crazy, but I think you just found the perfect partner to do 2-man pods with! The episode with K.C. Johnson was quite good. It's good to hear you when you're not fending off wild-eyed ideas from Stans, but rather engaging in-depth discussions with another very knowledgeable and realistic analyst.

For me the two of you are better than the pod that KC does with the NBC Sports crew, or the pod you do with SRF.
Although your ability to completely annihilate the insane ramblings of SRF does have its own special brand of entertainment value!


Believe me, if there was any way that I could do a show regularly with KC Johnson then I'd be all over it. :lol:

KC has always been my favorite Bulls guy, when I did media stuff awhile back, he was super nice to me when I was just starting off doing some media stuff at a time that bloggers were still on the outside looking in and somewhat of a threat to traditional newspaper media (though all the media guys were nice, but KC really stood out).

It was really interesting to hear KC describe his relationship with John Paxson (and to contrast to where he is at with AKME). I thought it was pretty insightful given how many people felt how plugged in KC was.


Nice job Doug on the KC podcast. Interesting to hear KC's comments on the 11 vs 20 Lauri negotiations. They seem to conflict with some earlier KC statements. but it sounds like it was on the higher end of that range when they are $4M apart. The Bulls probably should have been more flexible, but the advantage to locking up Lauri early are all but eliminated if you signed him at $20M.

Yeah was speculative, but I think 16/20 was probably the lines that were drawn.
