    Lets get killed..
    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    My guess is since Chicago stinks, this will be a close one, with Rose tearing up TJ in the final minutes.

    Thereby the only positive of losses being seeing the young guys on court together, won't happen.

    I am looking forward to seeing Tyler start, hopefully this will be a trend. Unfortunately he will probably be playing with Murph and Dun instead of Hibbert and Djones or Rush. At least it will be a better combination than the horrendous Hibbert Murph and Dun trio.

    I expect them to lose, but I hope they at least give some effort tonight and make it watchable, and by watchable I mean not in the morbidly fascinating sense.

    For the sake of argument, I put I was fairly certain Rose was NOT one of the top five in the east, he will be, but he isn't now. Right now here is how I rank Eastern COnference Pg's (I do NOT think Arenas is a pg):

    1- Rajon Rondo
    2- Mo Williams
    3- Devin Harris
    4- Mike Bibby
    5- Jose Calderon

    Derrick Rose is insulted by that. He's better than everyone on that list except Rondo. The Least has weak point guards.

    and Ford and Solo starting..

    So Watson gets a three game leash, Ford gets a whole season. Price is chained to the bench regardless.

    Like Jennings. Like Rondo more. At least now.

    What's Tyler's ailment or reason for not playing?

    You have to think if we don't get high effort, win or lose, following the Miami debacle, JOB's lost them without debate.

    inner ear infection..

    Murphy and...is McRoberts going to get time? Or we'll see Hibbert and Solo in together..or Dun will get extended minutes at the four.

    Regardless..more minutes for Murphy..good.

    Taking Jennings over Rondo as well as D. Rose at this point in time is asinine.

    Then he can be insulted. He needs to make better decisions in transition and play defense the whole time he is out there before he is up there with them. In fact I am not sure I would take him over the likes of Raymond Felton now. If you look at long term prognosis, then of course I would take Rose, but if the question is asking who the best are today, then no, Rose is not.

    In another thread Hicks said he doubted Ford would get the start again so soon because JOB has made it clear that TJ's used up all his rope. I basically said the clearer JOB seems, the more I expect him to do something other than what he says. At this point all I can say about the large gap between what Obie says and what Obie does is:

    P.S. - This is not an "in your face" to Hicks by any means, just another example of "OMG, WTF JOB."

    No Hansbrough is a major bummer. He's the most interesting thing going on with the Pacers nowadays*.


    *apologies in advance if this statement somehow upsets anyone here, for whatever reason.

    You are criticizing Rose's defense when you have Jose Calderon on that list above him? Calderon might be the single worst defender in the league.

    Those animated bulls are so 90s. Someone needs to update their CGI.

    He also thinks Mo Williams is a PG and Gilbert Arenas even though Mo isn't even the primary ball handler in the starting lineup and Arenas is 2nd in the East in assists.

    Rose is top 5 and it isn't close.

    Rajon Rondo
    Derrick Rose
    Gilbert Arenas
    Brandon Jennings
    Mo Williams
