Yeah! That is like Brady, Manning and Brees hanging it up at once.

 

Yep. It is definitely a changing of the guard.

i think i was in 6th grade when kg was drafted. unbelievable. hof class of 2021 should be the greatest class ever. And that's without the possibility of Paul Pierce retiring this year.

I've had to put all my fan eggs in the bulls basket after the Bears.

 

I expect Oct/Nov to be pretty brutal while they figure things out, on the other hand, I think a team with Wade/Rondo/Butler may be more capable of winning those regular season "grinder" games that just slow the pace down and win on grit/pulling shoulders out of sockets.

Thomas Walkup better make this team!

 

That would be great. He was awesome in the Tourney.

 

Seems like its either him or Dimwiddie for the last spot.

 

Unless Zipser goes to the D league.

I'm looking for one more for my amazing keeper league. Ask Zoom. We are a decade in and have an open team.

Rose said the city of Chicago took him for granted: " All I can do is just work on my game and hope that they continue to look."

 

So happy he is gone.

 

waiting for the Knicks honeymoon to be over when General Soreness shows up a few times

Took him for granted? No, they actively despised him.

Man, that guy was the king of this city and was given every benefit of the doubt before he was traded. Talk about a lack of awareness.

I'm sorry for not criticizing Rose. I'm disgusted by him.

 

One of out guards won't make it right? I don't like Canaan at all, but I guess his 3pt may get him in.

I'm so glad Rose is gone. Unfortunate he got hurt and I cheered like heck for him a long time, but man, what a breath of fresh air to have him some place else. One thing to be certain, the start to this upcoming season will be interesting. I sure as hell hope this works and that we can land a big name next off-season.

Apparently Rose is having issues learning the triangle

 

http://www.slamonline.com/nba/derrick-rose...7768LeByRR3g.97

 

Rose, who grew up in Chicago and views Jackson as “a legend,” said tips on the triangle from his agent BJ Armstrong could only be so helpful. […] “Me and BJ are two different players. He was a shooter. Like I’ll knock down shots but my game is playmaking and I just hoop,” Rose said. “Like I’ll find a way to get it done. So BJ’s job was just to give Mike (Jordan) the ball and get out the way. I didn’t want to say it like that but that was his job. He tells me about (the triangle). He told me they had the personnel for it back when they played and I feel like we have the same personnel.

 

Ok Derrick, keep on thinking that.

Lol no that's closer to reality than he probably wants to admit. But the whole "we feel we have the personnel" to run the triangle likes the 90's Bulls... GMAFB!
