This past weekend, the Blackhawks trading Brian Campbell and Troy Brouwer but I don’t really know what to say about that other than the team having a lot more money to spend. I will miss both players but it’s business and I am confident that Stan Bowman can find a way to get a good free agent or two in place of those guys.
The Bulls made a couple picks in last week’s draft. They drafted some guy from Real Madrid. They said he will be ready in a few years? Why? Isn’t a draft suppose to be for players who should be ready to help their team now? I don’t get it. They also picked up Jimmy Butler from Marquette. Supposedly, he is suppose to be Deng’s backup at small forward. His stats (Cue
Irish Yeti) in college were pretty good (15 points, 6 rebounds per game) but as we know, that doesn’t mean shit in the NBA. I didn’t understand why the Bulls didn’t try to trade for a shooting guard in this draft. If Keith Bogus is still around, you can bet I am going to be angry all next season.
From what we are hearing, the NFL lockout might end soon. The owners and players will be meeting once again this week to try to get a deal done. There is a month left before training camp starts so time is ticking. If nothing is done by the middle of July, I may start to figure out what I may have to watch or do on my Sundays. It may not be all that bad. I could be watching the Bears’ secondary let quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers or Michael Vick have their way with them. Maybe the secondary is working on that “prevent” defense during this time. Or is it the “Cover Who?” defense? I always imagine Lovie Smith in his accent saying the following at his press conference about this so-called “defense”: In the prevent, that means that we are preventing our defense from stopping the opposing offense.
