(not how I wanted to return from vacation)
The Chicago Bulls' Sunday practice is underway, with new signees Jannero Pargo and John Lucas III on the court.
Enjoying the idea that KC feels the need to declare these guys unlikely to play, no doubt fearing a deluge of emails similar to those wondering why Rasual Butler doesn't get more burn. Though I assume that since these guys are (contemptibly) familiar to Bulls fans, the emails would instead be hoping they won't play.
And sure, they won't play...but I don't even want to look at them. They're not good 'insurance' because they don't belong in the league. And I even doubt their ability as 'practice players' since they're fairly old. Why not sign a young (and presumably hungrier) player who could maybe push somebody in practice, and provide a free look heading into next season?
Nah, Bulls have some cash lying around, so instead: give 'em a gift, and invest in some future Org. loyalty. At least Lucas is more of a 'Thibs guy', and I can't be upset if he's getting more say, since Thibs rules.
I hope I don't have to pull a KC and explicitly clarify I don't actually think this is a big deal, but I guess I just did. Warrants a slight shaking of the head, but ultimately: whatever. I do look forward to the future jokes.
*I suppose those don't NEED a counterbalance, though I sometimes feel a bit icky after reading them when they're hammed up too much. Haven't read these particular ones yet.
