Once Rip gets acclimated, Chicago will be nasty. Brewer and Korver off the bench with Miles, Gibson and Asik. Going to love this rivalry for the next few years.

An even bigger reason to hate the Bulls: Rip Hamilton. As if they needed more clutch 3-shooters, but now, they have a Brawl-era Piston playing for them. We better destroy them tonight. And I hope Paul George blocks Rip's shot so bad, he breaks himself.

fwiw, i never thought of rip as a 3 pt guy. great mid-range game, but only so-so from 3. or he was, maybe he's gotten better.

It will be interesting to see how Rip gels with Chicago. He thrived as the #1 scoring option with Billups, but with the Bulls he'll have to play second or probably third fiddle to Deng. If Rip is a good fit, they will be tough. If he's an afterthought, we might see him sulking on the bench.

Could have been a lot worse for one half. I'm not ready to throw anybody under the bus over the preseason. But at the moment I'm pretty unhappy with Roy Hibbert's effort on both ends of the floor. Hopefully, he's just taking it easy against a physical Bulls front court.

Hansbrough's likely future contribution to the Pacers if he keeps playing like this is to probably end up as the key piece of the package that nets us that "superstar" so many crave.

Personally, I think once West is fully up to speed it will just make our power forward position a true nightmare for opposing coaches.

At some point though, (Probably next summer or trade deadline), either West and what will essentially be his 10 million dollar expiring deal or Hans will probably be involved as the center piece of a big trade, JMO.
