Do I detect a hint of jealousy here? Jealous of the fact that we snagged a future Hall of Fame point guard in the draft and your teams didn't?

Rose will be dominant. For the next decade and a half. Of this I have no doubt.

Jealousy isn't quite the word I would use.

Although I can see where he could expect Celts fans to be jealous of the Bulls these days, they have a future bust at point guard and all we have is the Larry O'Brien trophy.

The Bulls' bigger problem this season will be Ben Gordon. He stupidly and stubbornly turned down the long-term deal the Bulls were offering and finally signed the qualifying offer on Wednesday night.

Nobody wanted Gordon on the QO, not the Bulls, the the fans, and not Ben Gordon. Now the Bulls are going to lose him for nothing next offseason, and meanwhile, this season, we are faced with the dilemma of freezing out of PT since we have no incentive to give him any in the crowed backcourt of Rose/Hinrich/Thabo/Hughes, or giving him PT in the pursuit of the mediocrity that will result in a first-round exit from the playoffs.

I am personally in favor of giving him maybe 10 minutes a game. Give Hughes a chance to build his stock back up so we can package him later on. Give Thabo a chance to develop finally.

Headache, do you really believe that D'antoni can get the knicks back in the playoffs this year?

do i believe it's possible? yes. it is the eastern conference after all... would i bet the house on it? no.

but i certainly do expect the knicks to be significantly better than last year... what's sad is that they can be significantly better and still not make the playoffs.

True. I still just don't think they have the talent to be a playoff team. We haven't really seen D'antoni coach a team without great players like he had in phoenix.

talent is not and never has been the issue with the knicks. the issue has been do they have the right talent, and the right mix. isiah's biggest flaw, besides his utter inability to actually coach a team, was that he simply collected talent without worrying about wether or not that talent fit together.

marbury and randolph will eventually be gone. i'm very interested to see what duhon will do, and how crawford will respond to actually being coached. i always thought crawford was a guy who could flourish under the right system... heck, under A system. now we'll see.

as for d'antoni never doing well without talent... well, that's true in heindsight. steve nash was a very good player before he got to phoenix, but he didn't even make the all star team the year before winning back to back MVPs. and in that second MVP season he was not exactly surrounded by stellar talent, as stoudamire missed the entire season. now some of those guys phoenix had that year... your boris diaw's of the world... have become pseudo-stars, but at the time they certainly were not. they had nash and marion and what were then considered a bunch of spare parts... and they won 58 games in a brutal western conference.

do i expect the knicks to win 58 games? of course not. all i'm saying is that to say d'antoni has never won without great players is a little shortsided because frankly a lot of those great players became great players under his watch, and weren't considered to be great players before he got there.

Fair enough. I guess we have to wait and see.

How do you know when you're the world's biggest fucking loser? When you're stalking the world's second biggest loser.

mike d'antoni is, in fact, an offensive genius.
