The NBA can be a world of buy low and sell high. One of the tricky things about running a team is knowing when to cut bait with a player and when to hang on to one. Some guys can be effective into their mid to late 30s while other guys lose value in their late 20s. Some players just have a lucky season while other guys whom look like they're having a lucky season develop into stars. How has Chicago done with asset management...
So lately, I've seen quite a few people discuss what a genius Daryl Morey is and how if only the Bulls had such an aggressive GM that would make big moves and plan ahead to strike at the right time then they'd have a title. Perhaps. But the Bulls front office is more aggressive than you think and just a tad less lucky...
So the Chicago Bulls decided not to bring back Ron Adams. It was a move that seemed surprising, but assistants sometimes leave, and most fans probably wouldn't have thought too much of it one way or the other until it was noted the move was made against Tom Thibodeau's will...
The Chicago Bulls dropped a winnable game to the Houston Rockets, collapsing after building up a large lead. Their defense was improved, but they couldn't find a way to score down the stretch. Sadly, quality offensive players aren't half off on the trade market today...
Derrick Rose posted on his twitter "Chi town till I die!", and it got me to thinking, is Derrick Rose a lifetime Bull? What if the organization continues to take a profit first, win second mentality to the stadium for the next five seasons. Will Derrick still want to stick around? Would you blame him if he didn't...
Several Bulls media outlets have noted that the Bulls are working on a "2014" plan now. A plan in which they can rebuild the core starting in 2014 rather than maximizing their opportunity to win right now. What exactly is the 2014 plan and how will it work...
Depressing title, but let's face facts, the Bulls are going to spend like a small market team. This doesn't preclude them from getting a couple superstars Miami style and ramping up spending. Even a small market team will spend to do that, but it does preclude them from winning Dallas Mavericks style by having one great player and then adding tons of expensive roleplayers around him...
I went on a long twitter rant about finances, basketball decisions, and the luxury tax with the Bulls yesterday, but so far, nothing they've done shows whether they're ready for significant financial commitment or not. The final two big money off-season decisions (Korver/Omer) will determine whether we're playing as a big market or a small market team...
This is the third of four articles on 2011 Chicago Bulls draft selection Nikola Mirotić. Today we’ll dig into the calculus behind exactly what options Chicago has to bring him over before the 2017-2018 season (yes, you read that right), given the limitations of the new CBA...
