1. BOOZER MAKES BULLS DEBUT, HEALTHIER THAN EVER
If only ... Carlos Boozer batted his eyes at the Bulls via a summer radio show, hoping to incite a trade. It didn't happen but that doesn't mean it can't. Boozer as a low-post option would add that long-coveted dimension to Chicago's attack.
2. JAMES JOHNSON IS THE REAL DEAL
And if he isn't... Maybe Taj Gibson is. Chicago appears tired of waiting for Tyrus Thomas, going for a big forward twice in the draft in a quantity-hoping-for-quality approach.
3. ROSE SCORES LESS, CELEBRATES MORE
Actually, it would be a good thing if Derrick Rose were to boost his scoring average by two or three points to about 20 per game. Just as long as he takes care of his teammates with his passing and defends his position with his quickness, rather than waiting for another turn to score.
