With BG walking....
What do we do at the two and more importantly how did we not take a guard (any guard) with either of our picks? Derrick and Kirk are the only guards who actual play. Salmons can play 2, but has always been a 3 first. I tried to roll with the draft as I don't particularly dislike either guy, but I felt we could've done much better (really don't know how we didn't take Chase Budinger at 26). Gar is officially scaring the hell out of me.
I'm with you. Gordon said they never made an offer, meaning they knew they weren't going to re-sign him. With that knowledge, they should have drafted Ellington or Budinger. Hinrich makes a great 3rd guard, but Salmons, Rose and Hinrich is a very thing backcourt. Remember a year ago they almost didn't draft Rose because they had too many good guards? Hard to believe now. They look like a .500 team right now, which is the worst spot to be in the NBA. You either need to contend or get a lotto pick, especially next year. The draft may be the best since the year of Lebron, Melo, Wade and Bosh who will become free agents a year from now. Forman and Pax have a year to get their act together because if they screw-up next offseason, we are cooked for a looooong time.
Im not happy wit Gordon leaving...
I really think we should go out and get Turk another scorer cuz were getting slim on those
But on the bright side we still a have D.ROSE and i think he can get us 20+ and 7 everynite now that BEN is gone
Jeff Teague would've been really nice at 16 and I wouldn't have minded jrue holliday either. I believe Teague would've been a hell of a 6th man/bench scorer for us to replace Ben with. I always wanted us to let Ben walk, just really thought we would've had SOMEONE to fill in a little at least.
i kinda feel maravich on the ellington at 26 if he was there, dont remember, but chase buddinger is not good at all, yea u'll see when he plays, and drafting a point gaurd with a high pick makes no sense at all, especially a rook, with the bulls not doing this, kirk prob wont get traded. once again everyone is sleeping on james johnson and taj gibson, but like i said once they start playing, and playing good stick to what u guys were saying now and not jump on em like man these guys are good. Bulls had a great draft, theyll sing a gaurd just to get through the season for 2010, then u can judge. But letting gordon go was fine, if it was up to me i would of traded loul deng (pure trash, and a thief) and kept gordon.
That narrows the list of candidates down quite a bit, leaving really only two teams who look like a big enough mess to contend for the most ping pong balls in next year’s lottery: the Houston Rockets and the Orlando Magic.
