Bulls Beat #176 - A loss? OH NO!!

Yes, the Bulls finally lost a game, and Keith Bogans dominance on the game when scoring six points has come to an end. I discuss the upcoming week, the Bulls precarious seeding scenario situation, and how the Bulls can get to the next level to win a title

  • I haven't listened to the podcast yet Doug but the complaining is not about the Bulls losing cause we all know that's going to happen at times but It's the way that they lost and how a team like Golden State had such a comfortable victory against the Bulls. The way the Warriors looked to toy with the Bulls at the end of that game was sickening and how they took Rose out of the game was not a positive sign when they seemed to do it with ease. I just hope within the next couple of weeks that they can solve the problems that they have cause I really don't see things getting any better in the playoffs with teams doubling up on Rose and other players having to step up.

    And I do believe this is an example as to why Deng and Boozer was not selected to the all star game. True all stars know how to step up on offense and defense and stay focused when the team needs them.

  • In reply to Reese1:

    Doug, very intriguing idea about trading for Andre Iguodala. That is a trade that could actually happen unlike the Carmelo proposals (he

  • In reply to Edward:

    I'm one of the people who thought Chicago should've drafted Igoudala instead of Gordon. How "gettable" is he? A move like that may not quite fall into the same category as LA getting Gasol (a solid veteran on a bad team looking start over) to fit or upgrade a specific need, but I think it would have a positive impact that could would resonate well beyond the box score.

  • In reply to Reese1:

    I really like the idea of that Iguodala trade. It really gives the Bulls size and I really like the way he's been playing, he had 16 assists the other night. And then maybe you could get a guy like T.J. Ford next year if Watson was to be dealt, but the Bulls are gonna have to start paying the luxury tax sooner or later anyways.

    As for the D-league, after seeing Trey Johnson (a guy who we all wanted to see get called up to the Bulls) get decent minutes with Toronto with the injuries to Bayless and Barbosa, I don't believe that he could've helped us anymore than James Johnson could have right now.

    I don't see why for 76ers on the Iggy trade idea. Two crappy draft picks and expiring contracts? You don't think they can do better than that?

    That's not even considering the logistical issues of having to send all of Brewer/Watson/JJ/Bogans out in the trade to match salary as you've constructed it. The 76ers would need 3 free spots to make it happen. I think you're probably more realistically looking at sending out Brewer + Korver + Watson and taking back Iggy + some min guy, it's always easier to make trades when the number of players going in each direction are roughly the same.

  • In reply to DontLetsStart:

    I called it likely an off season type trade, in the off-season you don't have roster limitations.

    76ers would do it to save salary, maybe someone else can offer more or maybe not. Iggy's not exactly living up to his contract.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    An off-season deal requires an off-season to deal in, with the CBA situation there probably wont be one.

    I'd guess they'd be able to dump him for a trade exception right now and get the equivalent value in picks back that the Bulls would be giving. This is the season to dump players with all the exceptions floating around, the fact they haven't suggests they don't want to. Either that or they expect the new CBA will make him cheaper.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    Vince Carter is a Free Agent next year, is he a good addition next year as a free agent at the starting SG. I know he is past his prime, however I think he can contribute as a 3/4 option.

  • In reply to argie2333:

    PLEASE No! Not unless he's willing to play minutes that are as inconsistent as his offense is now and he's willing to play for the veteran's minimum.

  • In reply to argie2333:

    On Monday night Celtics recorded their 13th loss. Doug's prediction of Celtics slipping below Miami looking more probable.

  • In reply to Reese1:

    Interesting that Brewer was playing well until recently, perhaps he senses that he is about to be moved again.
    He sure went flat quickly.

  • In reply to Waldock:

    He's had a couple of invisible games, I don't think I'd read much into it just yet. We tend to be too quick to see patterns and assign causes to them when it's just random variation.

  • In reply to Waldock:

    Valid, but the thought had crossed my mind before I checked out the site
    I've commented previously that the Bulls have been mentioned in too many articles about possible trades by knowledgeable reporters to not have something going on.
    This team is too close and the need too apparent for them not to do something. I've never believed that they want to rebuild.
    Boozer needs a Gibson, Taj is too necessary and inexpensive. Deng isn't going anywhere. He's the utility man. Lodger and Brewer have value and that's where the need is. They go.

  • In reply to Waldock:

    Lodger can be his nickname from now on. :)

  • In reply to Waldock:

    "lodger" cause he'll wind up being a rental

  • In reply to Reese1:

    If they did this all the time, then I'd agree. However, the Warriors beat us with a gimicky lineup, and I'm not convinced they could pull it off regularly.

  • In reply to DougThonus:

    I agree. This type of wild, disruptive style is rarely successful in the postseason. It's as dangerous to the team playing that way as it is to the team they're playing against. This game pointed out some things that the Bulls still have to work on, but it's certainly not the time to push the panic button.
