The first ask KC of the season, always a great read:
I particularly love this (partial) answer, given that I've taken plenty of crap for saying something quite similar:
Gordon is a special scorer and I've been accused of serving as
president of his fan club. I'm as curious as anyone to see how the
Bulls fare without him. As for Gordon's defense, I nominate Derrick
Rose's as worse, at least last season. Rose appears much more committed
at that end this season and also surely has the athleticism and size
eventually to become a strong defender.
The whole column is worth a read, plenty of questions and answers about everything you can think of related to the team.
How many games into the season before Luol Deng goes down to
injury? Do you seriously believe the smoke screen and blarney that Gar
and front office throw out about the Bulls not being hurt in the loss
of Gordon? Most NBA commentators are appalled at the Bulls not making
any moves in the offseason. The word on the street is that Reinsdorf is
paralyzing the franchise (no personnel moves with financial
implications) over concerns with the economy and a couple of their
long-term contract commitments. Can you confirm that? Thank you. Padres
Forever. -- Warren Cromartie.
I can't because it's not true. As for Deng, he's had tough-luck
injuries. If he's healthy this year, I suspect he'll return to form.
I found this question and answer particularly interesting in wondering which part of the question he said isn't true unless the whole thing. However, the franchise seems paralyzed for this year, not just due to Reinsdorf but also to keep the 2010 cap space available.
I don't recall Forman ever saying Gordon's loss wouldn't hurt them. He's always said they like their guard rotation of Rose, Salmons, and Hinrich. It's hard to argue with that if they're healthy.
