Joe Johnson Trade: Hope for Bulls to move Boozer?

Ever since the Joe Johnson trade was agreed to in principle, I don't ever think I have read or heard the word ALBATROSS as much as I have now...which leads me to the question: is there hope for the Bulls to possibly find a trade partner for Carlos Boozer?

Pre-Joe Johnson trade, the Nets looked like a PERFECT place to send Boozer and would have been a great trade for both sides. The Bulls could have gotten Marshon Brooks and filler for Boozer to be reunited with DWill and the Nets still could have gotten Dwight Howard. But I guess you can't change that now...

Come on Gar-Pax, time to step it up! If ATL can move a much bigger and longer contract, why can't you guys move Boozer? I hate to just be another member of the Boozer-hate club, but dammit he's just not worth the money

What other team could (realistically) take Boozer off our hands?

Kevin Willard (NR): Narrowly

Kevin Willard (NR): Narrowly missed coaching Seton Hall into the NCAA Tournament last winter. Now he has to keep the momentum after losing most of his starting lineup. Can anyone play point guard?

Do you pay more attention to

Do you pay more attention to your training now than when you were younger?

Whether they want them or

Whether they want them or not, however, they’re coming. This is a starting lineup likely to feature Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo, Hedo Turkoglu, Glen Davis, and Gustavo Ayon, with the top bench players being JJ Redick, Quentin Richardson, and Al Harrington. There are some vets on this team that have played in the postseason before, but without Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson—easily the team’s two best players last year—they look headed for the lottery.

Despite all of the personnel

Despite all of the personnel changes shooting guard Lou Williams, the Hawks’ marquee free agent signing this past summer, believes the team isn’t in rebuild mode, but sort of a transitional restructuring period in the first year of general manager Danny Ferry’s tenure.

"I mean, I've always felt

"I mean, I've always felt I've been one of the leaders of the team," Horford said. "And this year it's no different for me, I guess you can say. Josh (Smith), myself, Zaza find ourselves where we're in a position where we are the older guys. The other guys talk about who's playing, who's doing what. We can definitely can relate to that, especially some of the veterans who came from other teams but yeah you can say that."

When Howard was traded to the

When Howard was traded to the Lakers in August, O’Neal analyzed the situation this way: “You have to care to have a reaction. I’ve got businesses to run. I always tell people that in order to step in my shoes, you have big shoes to fill. For him, he’s going to have to at least win three to get people’s respect.”sgf434

That seemed to be the concern among most fans, and they can stop worrying. His conditioning is no longer an issue.bvsaf3

It’s too early to tell how

It’s too early to tell how good Waiters will be right away, but here's what we think we know: He’s a streaky shooter from the perimeter, he can get to the basket practically at will, and as coach Byron Scott said, “he can go over the top” of defenders once there. Overall, he's looking pretty good.mnfngtrf

Again, it’s early, but that

Again, it’s early, but that is the way it’s looking. Samuels and Leuer are both expected to back up second-year man Tristan Thompson at power forward. Samuels is more of an inside threat, Leuer is a big man who’s effective from the perimeter. So it’s a safe bet Scott will play each according to matchups.vafae3223

As for Leuer, Scott said, “He definitely has 3-point range, much more athletic than people think he is, and he’s a tough kid.”vfsdgf

Scott has offered nothing but praise for the backup point guard, acquired in an offseason trade (with a second-round pick, for D.J. Kennedy).jgfhdfghfd

Pargo is a bit of a good-natured prankster and just generally fun to be around. But his coach is a fan because of the way Pargo pushes the ball in practice.fsfg4er2323

With Leuer and Pargo

With Leuer and Pargo seemingly shoe-ins, potential candidates to be released now include camp invitees Justin Holiday and Kevin Anderson, undrafted free agents Kevin Jones and Michael Eric, trade-day acquisition Kelenna Azubuike, returning forward Luke Harangody and Sloan.gfdsfgsf

Then again, Scott has already

Then again, Scott has already said it’s possible the Cavs keep both Pargo and Sloan, and Harangody just accepted the team’s qualifying offer over the summer. So keep in mind, all the names mentioned are pure speculation. And a few of them will make it.hgfdg34324

The new Big-3 era was really

The new Big-3 era was really only supposed to last three years. The Celtics were supposed to have a very short championship window and, when the three years were over, they would have to start anew around Rajon Rondo and whatever other draft picks may have matured into contributors along the way. Instead, they have now nearly doubled their life expectancy, entering this season as one of a handful of teams who should not be making any plans for June golf outings. Meanwhile, the success of the original Big-3 has spawned copycats around the league who saw Boston's immediate, dramatic turnaround and want to experience it themselves.hsg3434

Parker seemed most offended

Parker seemed most offended in two areas. He believed it was unfair for Bryant to criticize him about his play when he averaged 11.5 points and 3.7 assists a game and finished ninth in the NBA with 140 steals during the 2005-06 season. The following season, Parker posted similar numbers in points (11.1) and assists (2.8).

"I'm really looking for,

"I'm really looking for, let's say, valuable action on the floor," Kirilenko said. "It doesn't really matter how many points you score. It's really not that important. The important thing is how you, let's say, execute on the floor. How you run. How's the quality of the game? If you're playing right, you're always going to get something."
