“Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” - George Santayana

NOVEMBER 24th, 2009:  “Beside Miller's recent struggles, Kirk Hinrich entered shooting career-low percentages of .360 overall and .316 from 3-point land. He did make 3 of 6 shots for seven points.  "I don't know if I've ever had a stretch like this," Hinrich said. "I have to stay aggressive. Sometimes, I feel like I have it going and then I have a hard time finding a way of asserting myself. I come out, my shot feels good in the first half and then I sometimes completely lose my rhythm in the second half. I'm not too worried about it. I figure it's going to come around some time. Just keep looking to take my shots, be aggressive and I'll get through it." – KC Johnson, Chicago Tribune

NOVEMBER 29th, 2007:  “Hinrich's struggles are more glaring.  He's shooting 34.6 percent overall and hitting just 20.5 from the outside. His assist-to-turnover ratio is a pedestrian 1.8, and his 4.7 turnovers per 48 minutes rank 15th in the NBA Article'I just think I need to stay with it and good things will happen,' Hinrich said. 'My confidence isn't shot. I've been through tough stretches before. I just need to play myself out of it.'” – Associated Press Article

FEBRUARY 2nd, 2005:  “Skiles said Curry didn't play again because he wanted to use a small, pressing lineup to create havoc in a come-from-behind bid. A four-guard lineup featuring a hot Jannero Pargo, with 10 fourth-quarter points, and an effective Ben Gordon, with 17 points overall, cut the deficit to 96-89 with 3:15 left. But the Bulls failed to convert a ton of chances in a winnable game. That's why Hinrich's 5-of-16 shooting night was glaring. He is 9 of 37 in his last three games. "I've been struggling," Hinrich said. "But everything still feels good. I don't think it's a mechanical problem. And I don't feel too much pressure. I just have to perform better." Asked if he knew what was bothering Hinrich, Skiles shrugged. "Not really," he said.” – K.C. Johnson, “Bulls Fail to Put Lid On Nets

JULY, 2009: “We have [John] Salmons and a hell of a three-guard rotation with Salmons, [ Kirk] Hinrich and Derrick [Rose]. Ben wasn’t going to get a whole lot of playing time. His time was going to be diminished. And now we’ve added [Jannero] Pargo for the limited time the fourth guard will get. Ben just no longer fit. He’s a terrific player. But he needs minutes. And he wouldn’t have been happy with the minutes he was going to get here.” – Jerry Reinsdorf  Interview with K.C. Johnson 7.21.09
