WTF is up with his socks and those skulls? He looks like he’s trying to look like a business pro but forgot to completely change out of his He-Man pajamas. Not to mention the shoes don’t fit the outfit.
Good post Genre. I know most are going to disagree with me but so be it. I am sticking with what I said at the before and throughout this past season: I thought Rose should have sat out the entire season regardless. Think about it. If Noah is out there for 40 minutes or more every damn game on two bad feet, how much worse would it have been for Rose?
John Paxson pulled Vinny Del Negro by his tie in his office after one game in 2010 after he played Noah past his minutes in a close game against the Suns. Thibodeou on the other hand, gets a free pass and he did much more worse handling his players than Vinny did. The Bulls weren’t going anywhere this season. I know I wanted to see what they could do with a full roster but this wasn’t needed. I understand the whole “he must play as part of the rehab” thing but I still think he made the right choice.
Now, if Rose pulls this crap at the start of next season, then I may have to rescind my opinion on this whole situation.
First, even with Rose, this team never had enough depth to push the Knicks and the Pacers, never mind trying to hang with the Heat in a seven-game series. What the Bulls did have…well, I saw a few Friday night road wins on ESPN…and then there were the losses that Fro Dog documented. Losing to the godawful Charlotte Bobcats, at home, on New Year’s Eve. Yes, it’s a regular season game in late December, but if the Bulls had taken care of business against the league’s dregs…who knows?
The Bulls did manage to win back-to-back road games, at Brooklyn to shut down the Nets (last time I’m gonna say this: FUCK NEW YORK BASKETBALL.), then barely forty-eight hours later, beating the Heat in South Beach. But having the two worst playoff performances in franchise history (worst loss margin ever in Game 2, lowest point total-AT HOME!-in game 4) was too much to overcome.
Rose needs two more alpha dogs to help him out. I’m not saying like James/Wade/Bosh or even Jordan/Pippen/Rodman, but he needs two others to help him out. One dude carrying a team is sooo ten years ago (Allen Iverson, where you at?).
Tommy T needs to develop his bench more and learn to manage his players’ minutes. The team needs to make free throws a bigger part of their practice regimen.
As for Rose, well whatever his story is, he’s split the fanbase in half. After that “comeback” commercial Nike ran last year, and him not coming back this year, he’s going to need at least a Finals run to get his street cred back.
Training camp starts in October.
Meanwhile, the Cubs let the opposing pitcher beat them with an RBI single. I know Zambrano used to do shit like that all the time, but damn…this team can’t catch a break.
Hawks should be starting Game 2 as I type this. I’m on a Shakeology fast this week, so no BWW tonight. I leave you all with a mashup involving the band who does my favorite Black Hawks victory song (sorry “Chelsea Dagger”)…
I am not sure where you’re getting your information, but great topic.
I needs to spoend some time learning much more or understandin more.
