The hate Porzingis is getting is WAY overblown. We’re talking about a 7’3 center that can do it all - at 25 years old. There is no doubt - Vucevic is more talented and has a cleaner medical report, but at 31 years old, how many good years does he have left? Maybe 3-4 years?
Are the Bulls going to beat the Brooklyn Nets over the next 3-4 years? Meh. Fast-forward a couple years and the current stars will be out of the league and the Bulls will be able to ship out multiple firsts again to find their third star next to KP and LaVine. (Maybe by then the Paw will develop)
I doubt the Bulls make this type of trade, but these KP trade proposals (for expirings) are ludicrous. No way Dallas does something like that. Why would they?
This deal makes sense for the Bulls if they can’t find a way to add a third piece for the upcoming season. It creates a larger contention window right when the power teams fall off. What other teams would be as set as the Bulls in 3-4 years?
I follow your logic, I just have never liked KP. Aside from his injury concerns, he is far from a good teammate and he has under performed per his salary. Maybe he turns it around, but he is less athletic this year than last year. His rim protection was gone, he is just a 3p shooter right now. You have more faith in him than I do and no one can see the future but for me I will take Vuc over him (I just threw up in my mouth)
That’s fair. I just see the league opening
up in a couple years, which is why I think there is enough logic to at least think about it. I wonder if AK and Porzingis have a relationship considering where they’re from...
What you’re describing sounds more like a critic of how Rick Carlisle is using KP, not his actual skill-set. Plus, it’s hard to be overly critical for a guy who returned from an injury and then had to deal with a COVID season. Talk about a great buy-low opportunity.
My hits and misses on players are not good LOL. I predicted Elton Brand would be washed out of the league and in 3 years and would have been the worst first overall pick ever. I also thought Tyson Chandler would be a NBA championship type player, which he was but hardly in the way I thought! I think he is better than he was in Dallas this year, but he is a huge question mark in attitude and health. His money rolls deep too. In some ways I think his best fit might be in the rumored trade for Kemba, He might look good in Boston with Tatum and Brown. I think he is a third option though and he is just to frail in the paint. As a center though he can open up the lanes which admittedly would be good for a guy like Zach. All that being said I don't see any really good ways to fix the Bulls either, so maybe KP would be a roll of the dice that works, but I fear watching him move because I gasp that a limb will break all the time LOL.
