similar points per game with a point guard shooting a higher percentage. More rebounds, steals and more assists for Rose. Less turnovers for Beasley...

We win.

On a side note...what exactly are the Knicks doing with Starbury?
bench him until he snaps, acts out, and they can either void his contract or suspend him and keep him away i'd just buy him out, but apparently dolan isn't letting them. go figure.


i've already shied away from my beasley for ROY pick based upon his playing for a rookie coach who's in over his head and playing with diane wade who takes 90 shots a game. the fact that all he does is hang around the perimeter is disturbing to me... miami has no true 5 and is playing haslem there, so beasley's chances at mismatches are lesser because of that, but still... he needs to be in the post a little more...

miami's currently a team with zero direction.

i've already stated what i feel about rose above... he's done very well, but he's looking like a scoring point, not a true point. that would be worrysome to me if i were a bulls fan.

an undersized shoot first, pass second combo guard? no matter how good he may be at being just that, is that really what you envisioned rose being? don't you already have a few of those? is a better ben gordon really what you wanted him to be? really?

I will wait to reply, but I do have to say that Rose is much different than Ben Gordon...and in many different ways.

i did say better

look, it's a very small sample... but at the very least i would be mildly concearned that he might not be the pass first point that everyone in chicago was hoping he would be.

he can still be a great player without being a great true point guard.

i'm not picking on him 'cause he's on the bulls... i've already stepped back on my proclamations about beasley because the miami heat are a ship without a rudder right now.

I think my problem is I want him to make players better, but with this team, I don't think he has players that he could make better...

They need a player, ironically, like LaMarcus Aldridge. Yup, we traded him for Tyrus. I mean, I'm not even saying Aldridge is the best player, but he at least is an offensive weapon down low.

Problem is, with this team, he still wouldn't have gotten the ball because nobody seems to understand that if you want to open up the outside game, you must try to have an inside game.

Yeah, we shoot too many damn jump shots. And bad jump shots at that.

Also, this just in...Lebron James is good at basketball.

fair enough...

saw the bulls for the third time last night... best i've seen rose thus far.

i still don't buy into the "he can't make his teammates better 'cause his teammates suck" argument.

Quarters 1,2 and 3 form the Lakers/Clippers were awesome. Ariza ....man that guy has skills. 4th quarter was your typical Clippers quarter.

The Lakers are so fucking good. I love it. I really, really like the team they've put together there. They're fun to watch.

The second team with Farmar, Ariza and Odom are second to none.

My prediction; Lakers will end with 55/27 by the end of the season.

Well they were 57-25 last year and are even more complete now. I think they'll reach 60+ wins.

You have to believe if Bynum had been there through the playoffs, they would have won it all. Their Finals loss wasn't nearly as lopsided as it looked; two close games that featured an INSANE Celtics comeback, and an almost-comeback from the Lakers that they just ran out of time on.

So I don't see who can really stop them this year, barring injuries.

This is the biggest problem. Sooooo much dribble, weave, dribble outside, hand off...

All of a sudden, Nocioni ends up with the ball and there's 3 seconds to shoot. Brick on a contested, low percentage three pointer.

Oh, I don't buy it either. I didn't mean to say that if I did. I simply meant that Tyrus Thomas isn't as good as Aldridge.

I hope he learns quickly to become a true point guard. Otherwise, he may end up another Marbury...

Glad you like watching the Lakers, because it looks like the Bulls aren't going to be too much fun to watch for the next few months:
