Other than that sad realization, the game was pretty boring. It's actually crazy that this terribly-coached Bulls team has a chance at the playoffs ... the 7th spot in the East no less! I dislike Vinny more and more each game. It's scary to think that our playoff chances could come down to one game - one play, and Vinny will be the one with the drawing board.
And now, some links ...
Video "highlights" of the game.
The Bulls were on national TV (TNT) last night, and the halftime analysis was great -
I guess Captain Kirk was good last night -
WOULD YOU RATHER ...
(a) make the playoffs (obviously one-and-done), which almost ensures vinny will be back to start next season, or
(b) miss the playoffs, get a lottery pick, and increase the odds that Vinny will be fired in the off-season??

"(Sacramento) is the worst team and being here you find out why... There are many young guys that want to find their niche, but they are so far away... There's no chemistry or teamwork. I can't see how this team could be competitive in the near future in the West... The draft is going to save no one. I don't know, I'll see what happens this summer."
We all know that Barack Obama will be rooting for an upset by his Bulls -- a team he loves so much he had them to the White House not after winning the championship (as is traditional) but after losing to the Nets.
But does he know that in his own Office of Management and Budget there is a senior economist in economic policy who has a second job advising the Cleveland Cavaliers?
Dan Rosenbaum spends his days working on issues like education and the alternative minimum tax. But he spends evenings and weekends helping Danny Ferry and the Cavaliers figure out how to beat teams like the Bulls -- by advising on player acquisition, coaching strategy, and more.
