7.Jan – { A Deng Shame }

Ha! – a Deng shame! – – I’m so clever, I bet you never thought of that!

I…personally was never really completely sold on Deng and felt like he should’ve been traded years ago, when we got rid of Ben Gordon’s trigger happy self.  One can only hope that the Bulls use this opportunity to get another big name in Chicago…someone that will mesh well with Rose once he decides to be healthy again.  Let’s not really hold on to these draft picks with the mind to “rebuild” a team that’s been on the verge of being true contenders over the last 2-3 years.  Now if the Bulls really put a strong bid in for Melo – then Thibs is going to have his work cut out for him, trying to drive defensive philosophy into LaLa’s boo-thang.  You want to know where the Bullies really messed up? – Getting rid of NATE! – that was one of the dumbest things ever – and it would be nice to have his spice on the hardwood right about now.

I can only imagine what team management thinks sometimes when it comes to these trades – but I hope they have a clue with the direction of this team – especially since the Monsters of Midway just signed Cutler for a long-term deal…

Go Blackhawks.
