    This feed is in reverse order. The oldest episode appears first. Any way you can fix this?

    The Chicago Bulls went against David Stern’s best laid plans. The Chicago Bulls were not a team anyone cared about league wide until Jordan made “Da Bulls” a household name.

    Always remember that Jordan signed a super long term contract at around 3 million per year so that the Bulls Organization ALWAYS had financial flexibility going forward.

    Jordan was efficient and never had to be pressured into being a distributor to win games and still get his 30ppg

  • Tanks-a-lot

    If Kobe played with Magic Johnson he would be the James Worthy role player, nothing more.

  • Keepup

    Ujiri clearly gave it 20 games to see if the line-up with Rudy Gay had any promise. It didn’t. Now he has to figure out which players are promising enough to keep for a contender. Everyone else needs to go for assets or cap-space. It’s not so much for “tanking”, though a bad record will be inevitable if they are to maximize the value of their remaining assets. Unless Ujiri thinks that Lowry is a future key player and he can re-sign him this year, he absolutely has to try to trade him for good assets (picks or young prospects). Similarly, a decision needs to be made about Demar and Amir along the same lines. Basically, the time has come to blow up the roster and get the best assets and/or cap flexibility possible.
