CBS Matt Moore thinks the Bulls just made average acquisitions in the off season, saying the approach was
Why have excellent when you can have above-average?
While I do agree we are far from awesome I think his "excellent" alternatives (that included Morrow and Amare) were not all that better. And for the price we paid I'm in with the org here.
Then Doug Thonus will set fire on BaB with this:
Let's say for the sake of argument the Bulls had the opportunity to bring back either Hinrich or Gordon on their existing deals by using their cap space
Well, haters gonna I hate but I'm in. Thonus also defended the Sasha trade but I think somebody said we didn't have the cap for that, right?
To finish, Rudy is compared to Kirk by Dwyer
There are a lot of Rudys in this league, players who aren't used properly in one fashion or another, and I think this guy could be a sterling pickup for a team that needs someone to run stuff off the bench. Or even a starter, and second ball-handler. Perhaps, like — I don't know — Kirk Hinrich(notes) was in Chicago over the last two years?
Glue guy anyone?
