At first glance I thought it said John Stamos.

Thanks for the great series last year, fishman. I shall emulate my goatee after yours.

I like what the Bulls did today. They didn't really improve the team but didn't hurt it either.
-They got a bunch of expiring contracts. Warrick will be more consistent than Tyrus Thomas and Flip Murray will take Salmons' minutes.
-They gave up a couple second round picks which is fine because they haven't done anything with those recently (even their first rounders haven't been awesome).
-Looks like the first round pick from Charlotte will be for 2012 which I'd rather have for this year so they can possibly sign and trade for a second free agent.

There's a few that have been submitted about the TMac/Martin trade. Nothing green yet though.

AND, by not giving up the entire ship for expiring contracts, they still leave themselves with a talented core (a word I've come to hate these past couple of NBA seasons) should they not get one of the "big" star FA's. They can get a couple of the medium FA's (Joe Johnson, Al Harrington, etc.) and still have a good team going. Or, if they want, they can use the pieces they saved to hit the trade circuit. Do I trust GarPaxMan to do anything like that? Hell no, but it's fun to dream.

All the Bucks did was get a shinier poo poo platter to put out for the 10 people who show up to the Bradley Center

/And 4 of them think there was supposed to be a Marquette game that night.

lol. you think Joe Johnson's a "medium" free agent. you're crazy. he isn't looking at a max deal in this market, but there's no way he signs for less than 12m, and at that point you aren't getting a "couple" medium free agents. you're lucky to get one more rotation player besides him.

That's why I think they might try a sign and trade for a second free agent. If the Bulls get Bosh in FA, Hinrich makes about $10 a year so getting Johnson in a s&t wouldn't take that much considering Atlanta doesn't want to pay Johnson that contract. I don't know the exact rules so I hate playing GM, but I think that works.

It'll take some aggressive wheeling and dealing, though. Given recent history, I expect to lose Kurt* Hinrich and Taj Gibson while getting nothing more than Nenad Kristic, Earl Watson, $50 cash, and some team's maybe-if-I-feel-like-it second rounder.

Or that Antawn Jameson guy. Not like he went to an actual contender or anything.

Well, there wasn't a greenlit thread about it, unless I missed it. It was the perfect opportunity to get on my soapbox about how I think a player who is traded from a team should not be able to resign with that team, if waived, until the next season.

And hell, I was too focused on remembering how to spell his first name. I say "Antoine" in my head and have to stop myself.

Oh well, another year and no help for Dwayne Wade. They'll need a FA splash to convince him to stay in Miami I think.

/I did that one on purpose :P

The Great EZE: /* - no that wasn't a typo.

I got it.

I like that the Bulls at least appear to be positioning themselves to be in the hunt for you know who this summer. If that goes down, Chicago could be looking at world titles again.

And to think that all this momentum started with a 2% chance of getting Rose.

Not even the biggest Bulls trade yesterday.

But who will take contested 20 footers with 10 seconds left on the shotclock for the Bulls now?
