To Begin, Kirk and Nazr look great. I'm excited for them. Marco and Teague need to figure some things out, and I'm not buying the Nate Robinson magic show just yet. I keep thinking back to JL3, making Lebron look like Eddy Curry. Marco is good, I've seen it. He can shoot, and unlike Korver he can create his own shot and drive and hopefully draw some fouls, but until he starts making some shots I'm not vouching for him fully.
The Bulls cannot lose Taj, he is a necessity to the team and I want him here for a long time. Boozer needs to go and if anything good came out of the CBA piss party, it's the amnesty clause. I know Boozer hired his dog trainer to teach him to raise his hand when the guy he's guarding shoots, but I'm not buying it.
Right now, I truly believe the Bulls are a five or six seed, and depending on what happens with Rose (at least we got to see him dunk a couple of those chips in that cheese) they may go a bit further. I'm going to go ahead right now and say this team is legit. I dream that we can deal Boozer by the trade deadline for a Skiles fed up Monta or someone worth a portion of his money and just a slight bit better. Taj should start. Rip should come off the bench and Teague should open up as the year goes on. This season will be better then we all thought. As amazing as Derrick is he will be even more amazing when he gets back.
Ease your fears true Bulls fans. This will be our year, filled with grit and pain, close calls and tough losses. This is the year of the true Bulls fan and next year will be our reward for our years of loyalty. The future is bright, Nikola is going to be serviceable and that Bobcats pick could bring us a cheap good SG. Cheer a little louder this year for the boys and stay optimistic, things have been and could be worse, remember when Ben Wallace was the answer to our prayers, yeah me too. Cheers.
