The plan is to be the worst team in basketball. Hopefully get the #1 pick. Take Porter Jr. They will have plenty of money for a couple young and talented free agents and hopefully move forward. My guess is that we will be looking at a 3 year down time before they are a reputable team again.
Although I am not sure I trust Gar Forman to make that happen. I like that Doug Collins is in the system to help with talent analysis and hopefully attracting top free agents.
I did watch some of the preseason this year and I liked the flow of the offense way more without a superstar. The ball never got stuck in anyones hands and with the tempo I think the shooting percentages will go up.
The other part is that I don't think most people realized that Lavine averaged almost 18 ppg last year. Still really young and going to improve. If they can put together a decent core through next years draft and get at least 1 all star free agent I think they will be a young playoff team once again.
Man I can talk basketball and the bulls all day. Even though they are going to be bad.
Yeah, I hear 'ya there, there's a big part of me that can't get fully past some of the putzy things he says, and there he went again the other night, unnecessarily throwing Blatt under the bus. Maybe Blatt isn't a quality NBA coach, but hey, dude, you made the buzzer-beating shot to win the game, why sully it with self-serving commentary?
I also see the Bulls championship window closing quickly, but OTOH, Thibs hasn't been the most stellar in-game coach this year, he's hardly the be-all-end-all of NBA coaches. If they can get the right guy to get them back to playing the kind of defense that's been their hallmark up until this season, with a healthy Rose and Pau back in the fold, it may turn out that that window isn't exactly slamming shut.
Still dis-like Lebron. That is not ever going to change.
