NBA Discussion: Warrioooooors, come out to plaaayaaay
Javale had a horrendous game offensively. Guy has no post skills, took him forever to get those 11 points for the triple double. I will say though very few guys can get up as quick with him and with his long arms, Rose was scared to go in the lane whenever Javale was in there. Javale's 12 blocks was the most in a single game in over 10 years.
Why the hell does Thibs abuse Luol Deng so much? And nice game from McGee...
It's basically a rotational thing because of our lack of production at SG.
First team goes out with Rose, Bogans, Deng, Boozer, Noah.
Second team comes in to start the 2nd. 2nd team would basically be Watson, Brewer, Korver, Taj, Asik. That's an awful team on offense, so Thibs keeps Deng in for Watson, Brewer, Deng, Taj, Asik. Then when he brings Rose back in, he will sit Deng for Korver.
When Boozer is healthy, he will sometimes go Watson, Brewer, Korver, Boozer, Asik/Noah/Taj.
But if I had to guess, it's probably 50% not wanting to trot out a completely inept second team on offense, and 50% Deng having a great year offensively and defensively, so he relies on him a ton.
It's something not a lot of Bulls fans like, especially given Dengs health history, so we've been counting our blessing each game. Oh, and Deng also sometimes plays the 4 when Noah and Boozer are both out, which makes me luolz.
I feel like the Knicks are just lacking energy. Which is scary, bc I'm starting to think they're not playing hard for D'Antoni anymore.
And you can see it in D'Antoni's face, he's not nearly as energetic as he used to be.
But realistically, they need more time to mesh with Chauncey. That's the real problem right now other than giving a **** on defense, Chauncey cripples our ball movement on offense right now bc he's not used to the system.
I was looking at some of the league's salaries and I found it interesting that the Bulls currently have the 5th lowest total in the league. And for a team that could easily compete for a championship this year, that mgiht end up being a huge deal.
And most of their best players are locked up for the next 3 years. This could greatly play to their advantage as is, but it would especially help them if the new CBA institutes a hard cap, since a lot of the other best teams are in the bottom half.
I hope they don't do something stupid and break it up though. It just seems to me that in the NBA, a lot of teams make moves just for the sake of making moves. The bulls have a really solid base with an emerging Superstar in Rose....if they use their available cap room wisely and add a shooter, there is no reason they can't turn into a dynasty, especially if the new CBA hurts teams who have most of their money tied up in a few stars. (Heat, cough, Heat...)
