    Note: Regarding the poll question, I realize that the UNC/Oklahoma game is still going on, but it should be finished around the time the Pacer game starts.

    Bulls are losing to the Raptors right now. Pacers might be able to get that game back tonight, and then perhaps narrow the gap on Tuesday


    Edit: Nevermind, the Bulls just forced overtime, scoring 42 points in the 4th... shouldn't have ran my mouth.

    Edit Part 2: Woohoo! Raps held on to win. Yeah I know the playoffs are most likely out of reach, but I'll keep hope that we'll win out, and either the Bulls or Pistons will falter!

    omg, Hibbert is the most frustrating player Ive ever seen. He already half way through the 1st quarter: bite on the pump fake on blatche who made ended up making the shot, took away that block from DG by fouling, Did not switch on Jamison who ended up hitting the 3, let blatche blow by him and dunk on his head, swiped at Crintenton driving instead of trying to block it, what the hell.

    I love Rush. Did you hear what the commentator said? You get surprised when he misses them

    TJ is usually terrible these days...

    Anyway, the Pacers with Granger and Rush on the court at the same time are a scary team. Both can hit the trey and any shot between the line and the rim, both can slash and both can put up buckets in numbers (Granger more consistently, obviously, but it's looking like Rush has that kind of potential.)

    I liked what I saw from Ford in the 1st half.

    He didn't look for his own shot and was actually looking to set up his teammates.

    He still makes dumb decisions (that lob to Granger, and two of his trademark "caught in the air with nowhere to go, how bout I just throw it up for grabs" passes)

    We're gonna have a hard time trading him, so it's important that he understands what type of point guard he needs to be to maximize his value to the team. (I'm not getting my hopes up and have accepted the fact that Jack and Ford are going to be our PG's next year. We shown in the past that we can do worse.)

    The tempo we play, there's no excuse for him not averaging close to ten assists a night.

    *Side note... the Brandon Rush that looks for his shot and is aggressive on the offensive end is the one that's our 2-guard of the future. (I love him and Granger on the floor together. The one positive to Dunleavy's injury is O'Brien now has a reason to use him as the 6th man without hurting his pride. Let's face it, Dunleavy will probably never be the 2007-08 version again.)

    Rush is doing better and proving me wrong..however, one has to look at the quality of opponents right now...

    I don't blame JOB for holding him back. Kid lost his confidence, it was a matter of him having to find it again and thus earn the right to be back on the court for an extended period of time. I think it's important for a rookie to go through that for one, and secondly, you can just go putting people out there who aren't sure of themselves.

    As for Ford, I agree there's no chance they trade him, so he really DOES have to adapt to this team the best he can to maximize his value. But I'm beginning to seriously doubt that he can adapt to this team. He keeps making the same dumb mistakes over and over, and they ARE correctable, so it's beyond me how it keeps happening.

    Well let's take a look...

    He had 11 and 8 against the Heat, plus played a major part in some guy named Dwyane Wade going 5-24...

    Yesterday against the playoff-bound Bulls he scored a career high 29 points.

    The opponent argument doesn't check out.

    His whole demeanor on the court has changed for the better (especially on the offensive end. How many of these shots would he have passed up a month ago?)
