Some people may not know this about me but I am a huge Bulls fan. When the Bulls had Jordan and were spoiling the city with titles, I was watching. When Tim Floyd was coaching and the likes of Randy Brown and Dickey Simpkins were in the starting lineup, I was watching. I am not sure how many of you guys here follow the NBA closely but I will be here to talk about the Bulls all season long.
Right now, the Bulls have about sixteen guards, two forwards and one center. That is suppose to be a joke but it could be true in this case. They do have a lot of guards and a couple that need to find new homes. Larry Hughes and Kirk Hinrich are two players that were rumored to be traded in the summer but no one wanted either of them. Hughes is a guy that can play average defense but every time someone passes him the ball, there is a 100% chance he will take a shot and on top of that, his salary is pretty high. In fact, Larry Hughes is so bad that when he was in Cleveland, a fan made this site: Website
Hinrich on the other hand can also play defense but he likes to dribble the ball until the shot clock reaches 3 in which he will either shoot or pass with no time for another player to shoot. I would want Derrick Rose and Thabo Sefelosha to start at the guards with Ben Gordon coming off of the bench as a sixth man.
Hometown hero Derrick Rose is by far the best player on this team. Most people are realizing by now that Rose is going to have to be the leader on this team. He will make shitty players average. He will make average players a little bit better. He is the real deal. This will be a process for John Paxson (Unless he gets fired this season) to unload some of the shitty players on this team to get some draft picks in return and try to make this team a serious contender once again in the next couple years.
With the Eastern Conference still being weak, my season win-loss prediction for our Chicago Bulls is 42-40, the 7th or 8th seed in the playoffs but end of getting their ass whooped by Boston or Orlando in the first round.
