On the Woj show around trade deadline, Woj said the Bulls turned down BOTH Brooklyn picks for Butler and Chicago wanted their veterans instead lol

Looks like OKC won the day today, Westbrook's getting some help for the playoffs.
That was an ultra precarious trade the Bulls made with OKC. Great for OKC, but WTF were the Bulls doing?

As bad as Garr/Paxx are at the front office, i can't really blame them for turning down the Boston deal



Danny Ainge added protection to the picks :lol:

Exactly! They have a log jam at the Guard position. Yet they add another PG that CANNOT SHOOT, trade away a G/SF that CAN shoot? WTF?
Anthony Morrow would have been a great addition to this team 5 years ago when his jumpshot wasn't broken.
On top of that they basically wasted 2 first round picks on McDermott. I would have traded Mirotic instead.

That franchise has no direction at all. They are wasting Butlers prime so they might as well trade him in the off season. Wade is prolly going to walk once Butler is gone.

Treadmill team at its finest.

How's that great coach doing with his new team?
First year with a new team, most of his guys are young and inexperienced. Thibs is a great coach but the young guys will take time to buy into what he is selling.

He's not done tinkering with that roster yet. They need to move Rubio and let Dunn run the point. Rubio sucks.

Replace Casey with Thibs and you're telling me he cant lead the Raptors to beat Lebron in the ECF?

Not sure how the Raptors would respond to him. It's an interesting point. Few would dispute Thibs is a good coach, but Casey has been successful with a totally opposite style.

Uhh no. First off, the NBA would not let anyone beat Lebron in the ECF. It doesnt matter which players or which coach we have.

Second, you are overrating thibs too much. He is an amazing defensive coach but thats where it stops. I dont know what he does with his players(maybe he kills them in practice or something) but they have a habit in getting injured and their body seems to get beat up fast.

Look at Rose, Noah, Taj, Deng and his recent victim(1st year as a coach then BAM!, torn ACL). They are still young but I dont doubt for a second these guys will just be another bulls when thibs is done(assuming they do what they tell him to do). Thibs is a FANATIC.

Bogut signing with cavs
He going with his teammate Deron Williams to Cavs haha. Wonder if Brandon Jennings will go to Cavs also.

No, they mentioned during the Warriors-Wizards game that Jennings had verbally agreed to sign with the Wizards.

Exactly my thoughts. When Bogut was setting screens for GSW, he always moved his hips into defender.

It truly is a 2 team arms race haha. Would love to see them duke it out for a third time.

They dont need illegal screens anways, they have refball. If that doesnt work, just take draymond out for a game or two.

True but he wont be 100%. But I guess a durant is better than no durant.
