Also, JJ Redick was Pax's first choice to man the SG spot (edit - other than Wade or Joe Johnson, at least) - they gave him an offer sheet that seemed like a fairly big overpay to try to pry him away from Orlando, but they matched anyway. JJ's defense might have driven Thibs batty at times, but he would have been better than anyone we ended up playing there. In the hindsight of the Jazz kinda surprisingly not matching the offer sheet to Matthews at a salary the Bulls could have offered, he would have been the best choice of the available options, but Redick was a good choice too.
I remember that, I was half pissed off and half intrigued when they offered him that contract.
Oh man I was pissed lol love JJ but we shouldn't have offered him that type of money.
I hated JJ as a player at the time so I was pissed, but I liked the idea of a shooter on the team so I was intrigued.
