MJ will always transcend the game.
I "loved" it live last night - but hate might be a better word. The first quarter looked like 2 NBA teams, then Vinny attempted to make each lineup more miserable to watch as the game progressed. We don't have the personnel to win this year, but VDN puts in these miserable, unwatchable lineups to try to squeak out 3-4 more wins this year? Why not play the young guys and see if they can develop some sort of flow with ROse? Keep TT, Luol (b/c we have to after over-paying him last summer), Noah (b/c he might be a decent 5 in a fast-paced lineup someday, and it's a better option than Gray), Captain Kirk, and Rose. Trade the rest of this scrap heap for expiring contracts, draft picks, and young talent.
I cannot believe how irritated and angry D-Rose must be to have to drive to the basket and then pass the ball to this bunch of jackals.
Blogabull also was not impressed: "However it still led to some fun Vinny-ness. The Bulls are beyond bad and approaching fun-bad at this point, no?"
"The question is whether the Bulls have hit their lowest point since that run to the second round of the playoffs in the spring of ’07?"
Everyone was back, but it didn't help: "Kirk Hinrich returned Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers for the first time since surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb. Luol Deng was back after an eight-game absence due to a sprained left ankle. Thabo Sefolosha was back after missing one game because of the flu."
