Thorpe Chat

Here are the Bulls related Q and As: Ivan V (isidro847@yahoo.com) When are the bulls going to can VDN and hire a real coach? I mean other than hair that glistens in the moonlight and makes grown men cry in envy, he doesn't know jack about coaching. That loss against the Nets made me feel like finding the nearest puppy and drop kicking it 30 yards. If this "losing streak" continues, this should be the final straw for GarPax. Thoughts? David Thorpe (12:02 PM) I certainly do not know what will happen there, but I watched the game last night. Nets were more organized and focused. Bulls have some injury issues. Christopher (Germany) Are you as high on John Wall as Chad Ford, who called him a slightly better prospect than Derrick Rose? David Thorpe (12:05 PM) Yep. Enrique (Chicago) Thorpedo!!!!!! please answer.... The Bulls announcer Stacey King brought up a good point yesterday in how Vinny uses DRose. Why does he continue to Run Pick and Roll at the top of the key with Noah everytime when it only clogs the lane for rose since more defense can block the whole? I think vinny stinks as a coach despite the injury woes of the bulls, i think most of the plays should be designed to use Rose' strengths but yet they're not, instead it takes the ball out of his hands. David Thorpe (12:09 PM) That's funny. I thought it was the dumbest thing I heard on tv all week. Ballscreens create 4 on 3 advantages for teams. Oh, and every time they scored off one, he said "simple game". Once in a while, I like isolating him with no screen. But not too often. Dror (Israel) More career MVPs - Durant or Rose? David Thorpe (12:17 PM) I would be shocked if Rose ever won an MVP. Enrique (Chicago) Thorpe, responding to your answer to my other question, but doesn't running the pick and roll so frequently when you dont have shooters, make it even more difficult for Rose since the defense collapse since they're not worried about a gordon type of shooter? Last year Rose scored a little easier through penetration because of Gordon. I think Rose can beat any guard off the dribble but yet vinny still thinks he needs help. David Thorpe (12:18 PM) Try beating a guy off the dribble, all game, for 82 games. While having to defend pg's as well. Please. Doug (Chicago) What type of player do you feel would fit the Bulls better, a Wade or Joe Johnson type SG or a big man like Bosh or Amare? David Thorpe (12:33 PM) JJ would be fine, Wade would take the ball out of Rose's hands to much. Bosh or Amare would be great, of course. SteveFitz (Cicero, IL) Would Avery Johnson be a good fit for the Bulls if VND is let go? David Thorpe (12:53 PM) Probably. SteveFitz (Cicero, IL) Bosh + Johnson = best offseason the Bulls can have, right? David Thorpe (12:54 PM) Probably. DJ (Chicago) Youd be shocked if Rose ever won a MVP? Guess Steve Nash winning put you in coma for a few days. David Thorpe (12:58 PM) If Nash played for any other team, that never would have happened. How many pg's have won one recently besides him? DJ (Chicago) Hey Thorpe, last week you said Deng was the Bull's best player. Deng cant even create his own shot and of course is such a gentleman that he lets others tie their shoes before he pressures them. David Thorpe (1:00 PM) This year, there is no debate. Deng and Noah are the best two guys on the team. Today. Rose may have more upside, but that's all it is now. I think he'll get there, but he's not there yet.
