    I think people underrate the Cavs roster right now. Varajao, Hickson, Jamison, Gibson and depending which center they keep are better than any other possible suitors frontline.

    Its the backcourt that needs a bit of an upgrade.

    They have been trying to get Darren Collison and they have enough money to sign a solid vet in the mold of Pierce who can fill that two guard spot. This way, Parker can come off the bench.

    But first they need to move Mo and Delonte.

    They can keep Mo, but if you keep Mo you gotta move Gibson. YOu can get something for either of those players.


    LeBron is still younger than Jordan was before he won his champion so anyone trying to hate on him for not winning yet are just looking for a reason to take shots at him.

    He still has his whole career ahead of him. He has his whole prime basically.

    Bulls:

    PG: Derrick Rose / ?
    SG: Joe Johnson or Lebron James
    SF: Luol Deng / Taj Gibson / James Johnson
    PF: Chris Bosh or David Lee / Taj Gibson
    C: Joakim Noah / Brad Miller / Asik

    That right there destroys whatever the Cavs salvage this offseason. Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose will both have even better years than last. Taj Gibson will have a breakout sophmore season as well. Bulls will improve defensively and open up the floor on offense. Only a couple days until free agency. Can't wait!!!!

    Ok and if the Cavs keep LeBron and sign Joe Johnson that that blows away anything the Bulls do.


    Bottom line is, the Bulls have Derrick Rose and not much else which is why they are barely an 8th seed and only could win 1 postseason game.

    It would have been amazing to see suns vs magic this year, would have been much more exciting, three pointer after three pointer...
    Not to take away from the desire or want from lakers and celtics, it was a very ugly/gritty series

    smh at another stupid sports player:

    --Scottie Pippen is a little less broke these days


    If you've read any of the numerous books about the Chicago Bulls of the 1990s then you know that Scottie Pippen is kind of funny about money. Raised in a poor household, Pippen jumped at the chance to sign a long-term contract prior to the 1991-92 season, choosing the security of a long deal over being paid what he was worth. Throughout his career, Pippen would endorse anything and everything, assuring that the money kept flowing in. Following the end of his playing career, Pippen was involved in a number of bad business deals that left him nearly broke.

    One of the notable money mistakes that Pippen made was the purchase of a $4 million Gulfstream jet in 2002. Due to a missed inspection, the jet's engine needed $1 million worth of repairs shortly after the purchase. Rather than paying that, the jet was grounded, making it the world's most expensive paper weight. Pippen sued his attorney for the missed inspection and Monday was awarded a settlement of $2 million. He was pretty happy about it. From the Chicago Sun-Times' Lisa Donovan:

    One-time Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen dissolved in tears Monday and gasped as a Cook County jury awarded him a $2 million verdict in a jet deal that went south.

    Pippen had sued two attorneys at the Chicago law firm Pedersen & Houpt for malpractice, alleging they failed to closely monitor his purchase of the jet, which was grounded only months after the 2002 purchase. [...]

    "I don't want to really say anything, I'm just exhausted and tired," a red-eyed but smiling Pippen said before leaving the courthouse with wife Larsa Pippen.

    You know how they say you can't have your multimillion dollar jet and eat it too? Well, tell them that they're wrong. And also that that is a weird saying.

    But really, this is good news. Yeah, it's kind of hard to feel bad for a guy filing lawsuits because he didn't get to use his super expensive airplane, but with all the 1990s basketball players that have been going broke these days, it's nice that something good actually happened for one of them.

    That being said, I think we've all learned a valuable lesson here. Whenever you spend $4 million on a jet, make sure it works first.

    i like pippen, but fuck, this goes for all these dumbass athletes.

    what the fuck are they thinking with these "real estate investments" and "business investments"? that always seem to go bad.

    jesus christ man put your fucking money in a bank and let it sit there. buy some fucking bonds or something. invest in gold. just do anything that will not see you piss away MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of dollars.

    The Timberwolves re-signed Darko and he is expected to be their starting center.
