Yes, that's a picture of a dead bull. No, I'm not interested in being sued by PETA.
How dumb does John Paxson feel right now? Thanks to Kobe, the Lakers are right on the Suns' taint in West, and the Bulls got skidmarked last night by the Knicks...thanks to Luol and his gimp back. Was this guy really that much of a stud that he couldn't be thrown into a deal for Kobe Bryant?
Personally, I was kind of taken aback when this "Luol Deng is going to be a perennial All-Star" train left the station. To be fair, the guy had an awesome playoff series against the Heat. He and Ben Wallace singlehandedly gave us that series - but now what? The Dong's namesake is pretty much relegated to 15 footers in the lane. He cannot drive to the basket; he's too timid. He cannot shoot threes, as his Sudanese refugee diet of rice, dirt and mukwango bugs limits his range. He can't post up...because he sucks. In the smarts department, I'll give Luol a bad grade simply because the dude turned down around 50 million from the Bulls earlier in the year as an extension. That's a lotta mukwango.
I really want to know what the scouts and Pax are so high on this guy for.
As far as I'm concerned, this season is experimental from this point forward. Unless they make a trade pretty soon, I'm convinced that the roster's going to be gutted in the offseason. And why not? It's about time to blow things up, as is customary in Chicago basketball every 4 years or so.
