^ There's your proof ^

According to Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN.com and ClipperBlog.com, DeAndre Jordan had been the most dominant at practice. That's where I got my information. I'll take the word of the man who actually sees the Clippers' practices and blogs for them.

And I don't care how you try to spin that "the Bulls' bigs are better than the Clippers' bigs" statement. I don't care if you were talking about right now or in the future. As long as Kaman and Camby are on the Clippers, the Bulls' bigs are no where near as good. Kaman and Camby alone are better than every big the Bulls have.

You also contradicted yourself. You said that Camby actually starts at power forward, so he shouldn't count towards taking away from Jordan's minutes, but then you include Thomas as a player he'd be competing against on the Bulls to get playing time. Thomas is an undersized power forward who NEVER plays center. Camby may start at power forward, but he plays a lot of minutes at backup center too.

Jordan would get time in

Jordan would get time in Chicago, but right now he's pretty much the same type of player as Noah, Thomas and now the rookie Gibson. So the Bulls would have 4 players that are wiry, limited offensively, and turnover prone grinders.

The whole point I was trying

The whole point I was trying to get Quincey to understand is that it's tougher on young players who are playing behind established veterans. Last season Eric Gordon started off on the bench due to C. Mobley and R. Davis, though he was having his way with them in practice. Even when Gordon got in the games at first, Dunleavy had him on a very short leash. I could tell EJ was playing with the mindset of "If I make a mistake, I'm coming out." I saw that same thing happen with Jordan. He made a few mistakes versus the Lakers and was pulled almost ASAP lol. Then he received a DNP last night vs the Suns. That's why I keep telling Quincey... Be patient. Each player is different, but it takes bigs time. Give the kid time. I remember people were saying the same thing about Jermaine O'Neal when he was in Portland. Look at what he turned into... An all-star.

Jordan to Bulls would be nice

I am not counting on it too much but DeAndre Jordan to Chicago would be nice... Yeah... If you go in there and analyze the Bulls team, they don't have the true center that can be a defensive beast nor an offensive beast for them... Joakim Noah is more of a power forward than a center... Tyrus Thomas is not a center obviously, Brad Miller is getting old and he is making the most of his tenure at Chicago with his expiring contract... Who else do they got? Taj Gibson? As much as he got those freaky long arms, he doesn't possess post moves that can make him dangerous on the offensive end... Then you got Jerome James who does nothing but cheer while earning $7 Million Dollars... Aaron Gray whose as slow as a turtle... Practically, nobody screams post threat for the Bulls... It will be a luxury for them to add a potentially great Center in DeAndre and see him develop PATIENTLY... The Bulls right now have to settle for their back court to rely on for now...

jordan isnt a defensive or

jordan isnt a defensive or offensive beats and noah has shown he can handle the center position just fine..hes better then jordan as well as miller being better then jordan..and the same thing you mentioned for taj applies even more for jordan..and even though aron gray is slow his numbers are very similar to jordans last year which says hes more skilled but isnt as athletic..jordan would go to chicago and either sit or play if all the other good big men got hurt
