    I'd target josh smith, re sign Calderon and call it a day. Smith and Drummond compensates for a small knight/calderon backcourt duo, and Calderon would have a field day with offensive targets

    But would you really want Drummond being mentored by Josh Smith?

    I don't think Josh Smith is a good fit with that group though, unless you want him shooting fadeway 3's all the time, not enough shooters for my liking I guess.



    edit: now if you replace Knight with Mayo you might have something. Calderon, Mayo, JS, Monroe and Drummond.

    Hate mayo. Gives me Ben gordon flashbacks. He adds nothing but scoring.

    Loved that Brandon knight destroyed Kyrie Irving his final game as starting point guard. It helped that Kyrie looked like he didn't even care to be there.

    Watching the end of the Grizzlies game to check out Tayshaun Prince. They were up 6 with 3 minutes to go, and Prince hit 2 key jumpers to help put the game away. Good for him. I'll be rooting for Memphis.

    Happy for Prince he looks rejuvenated out there and cant say I blame him. He is the type of player that does no good for a rebuilding team but man is he a good glue guy. I liked the trade a lot more for the Grizz when I found out it was Prince not Cory Maggete going back.


    trade made sense for 2 of the teams in the trade and if the Raps can play like they did tonight maybe it was a good trade all around. But I kind of still hate it for them they are almost in the LT and have a mediocre team IMO and will stay mediocre for a while.

    He fits their roster much better than ours as well. I'm rooting for him too.

    I think is possible that Rudy Gay looks a lot more like a superstar in Toronto, he is going to get all the touches he wants just like Harden in Houston, he was never going to be an star in Memphis with Zbo and Gasol.

    The Lakers are playing much better with sharing the ball. But they have a tendency to stand around and watch Kobe and then fall in love with the open 3 point shots he gets them. (As opposed to rolling to the basket..or..moving without the ball at all...)

    This strikes me as an unwise thing to do. Gotta think somewhere down the line Butler will be getting his laid out by a Raptor or ex-Raptor with a long memory. If not this season, next season.

    yep, it's silly. And Butler seems to be asking for a clear path too.

    With so many injuries, (Boozer, Noah, and Rose) the Bulls basically played 7 players last night. Gibson played 48 min and Deng 47:56 min.

    Ever since JO wanted to know where he fit in, he hasn't played. Listed inactive. Makes me wonder if he is really injured.

    He's been dealing with an irregular heartbeat, so he stopped conditioning for a while. I believe the team is still awaiting the results of some tests he did.

    Chicago hardly has any players, but I don't understand what Atlanta is trying to do... they're not running, just fiddling around, walking the ball up, sloppy defense too. I can understand why people at times just don't like the Josh Smith plays, he doesn't seem focused at all. If Atlanta would just put they're foot on the gas, they'd be up by 15, the Bulls are outworking them, even though they're running on fumes. Watching them play, for the life of it, I cannot understand they beat us that often. (yeah yeah, I know, athletic team, good matchups blabla)
    yay, we're going back to the play-offs!

    The Bulls offense is pretty damn good that's why they win so many games.

    The Bulls share the ball nicely but their offense is not the reason they are winning games. Their defense is.
