Let's also not forget that in order to add a 34 year old with knee issues to their roster, the Bulls had to make the defending champions better.

Spending a couple of seasons at the end of his career on his hometown team is not tarnishing his legacy, regardless of whether they compete or not.

I would venture to say if any player spends their entire career with one team from start to finish, it's a legacy builder. I was referring to Dwyane Wade's "Miami Wade County" legacy.

I'm not hating on him. Like I said, blessing in disguise. But I wouldn't pretend I'm not disappointed with him.

This at least breaks the looooooong streak of big name free agents not wanting to come to Chicago.

Yeah, D Wade is old but he's still a big name. So we got that goin for us, which is nice.

As LeMel alluded too, at least the Bulls won't be boring. I'm looking forward to the season with Stacey King on the call.

Probably a starting 5 of Rondo, Wade, Butler, Gibson, and Lopez. With Valentine, McDermott, Mirotic, and Portis off the bench.

I think two key players there are McDermott and Mirotic. They both need to become more consistent at shooting the three. And I think they both can.

Lol at Duncan's retirement versus Kobe's. He's an admirable guy.

I thought of that too. Not that I really have a problem with how Kobe did his. The two are just very different personalities.

I'm mixed on Kobe. But tons of respect for Duncan.

Plus Duncan didn't tarnish his legacy with a stupid Ghostbusters commercial.

Duncan was the ultimate professional. Incredible player. Also, I agree with Dirk Nowitski's comments "He was always about winning, never about making a brand out of himself."

Yeah, Duncan definitely was a humble winner. Easily one of the best role models for the modern NBA player.
