From the inability to box out from missed free throws, to playing 8 players out of a possible 12-13 players and missing their best player Derrick Rose. See you next year.
1. We only got here on defense and Noah's sick season.
2. Boozer! Boozer specifically couldn't box out Gortat 3 straight times on 1 possession! Then he immedietly takes a bad lay up on the other end.
3. We, once again, have ressurected a guards career. DJ had a great year. He struggled in this series, but when your 6 foot and you force the otehr teams 6'9 athletic wing to guard you... your doing something right.
4. No Deng crutch for Tibs to lean on... does that mean big off season? I can't watch another year of Rose-less (knock on wood) Bulls struggle to score like it's a middle school girls basketball game! After putting up with the Bears not having a QB or a passing game for 20 years... we deserve to at least have our MVP back for basketball!
a scorer. Missing Rose was huge, but letting go of Deng and having an inconsistent Boozer on offense really sucks. They really need to get help
They either need to re build, or figure out if Derrick Rose is healthy, if not Re build. If he is healthy then build around him with a great Free Agent
How exactly do you "figure out if he's healthy"? Of course he will be healthy at the beginning of the year, so their plans will be based around the assumption he will be healthy... the problem is that is far from a guarantee.
They had to move on from the deng era. He was a part of the good but not good enough "core" of the bulls. Boozer is gone this summer.
They had to let go of the good to chase the great (Melo, Bron). This year was a wash they got lucky and made the playoffs with a below average roster. Now they are all in for a championship.
Bulls need to keep Rose healthy and sign Mirotic, let Boozer go and then maybe chase Melo.
is we are going to be able to do both... I hope that because a starting line up of rose (healthy), butler, melo, taj and noah with mirotic off the bench would be scary good. I hope we get another assistant coach to help Thibs in the offensive side and to make better in game adjustments.
Melo is the answer for the Bulls.. Coach thibs i think can push MELO to be aleast a decent team postion defender in the team concept. Will melo ever be a lock down man to man defender ..naw never.. but Joahkim will help. Thibs can still run 10-15 iso's per game for Melo.. the Bulls would be nice.. Rose will never be what we thought he would be but with Melo carring the scoring load..Some night Rose will feel like his old self. and dominate and on those other nights Melo will be Melo. ROSE,BUTLER,MELO,TAJ,JOAHKIM..Thats a nice 5.
WHY does Coach Thibs only play Nazr Mohemmed against the heat.. I think last night his height and size could have helped on the boards
But you have to applaude them for getting so far..They lose Rose,traded Deng,starting a point guard they picked up in the middle of the season and not having many players that can create their own shot...But with the talent,hardwork and determination of Noah and the brilliant coaching of Thibs, they keep the team rolling.....
If Melo comes to chi then Mirotic will have to wait one more year. Not enough space to fit both
