ROSE DEFINITELY SHOULDNT COME BACK IF THEY MAKE THAT SHITTY TRADE.
BOOZER IS *** BUT ATLEAST HE CAN REBOUND,
AND REBOUNDING IS OUR GREATEST ADVANTAGE OVER MIA.
WE GAIN NOTHING FROM THAT TRADE.
Bulls gain better shooting, floor spacing, and length from that trade. Plus the contrast that Gibson and Bargnani bring to the table too. I wouldn't worry to much about the Bulls rebounding, as its basically all scheme and hustle anyway (Thibs will still have rebounding as a main priority).
We gain the chance for Taj to start, and finally get rid of that albatross that is Carlos Loozer. I have more confidence in Bargs doing something in the playoffs than Loozer.
thats where im at with it. boozer not getting better. and in another year, boozer could get so bad that its no way to get out that contract. and the amnesty is useless cause it still dont put us under the cap.
bargnani has a more movable contract, so even if he dont work out and cant stay on the floor, we have more of a shot of moving him, and he has that eto in 2014, so its much easier to get out from under him. we hold boozer too long, we could be stuck with him with no where to go.
and who knows what bargs can bring. yea he a bad rebounder but with the way the league is, the only team in the east the rebounding thing hurts us with is indy, vs everybody else, taj, noah, deng and whatever bargs can bring is still better than anybody else. and no telling what thibs can do with him. we done seen what boozer is, good to get another look somewhere else. low risk high reward imo.
gotta admit though, that john lucas **** is killing me. giving up a cheaper better nate is close to a deal breaker.
IT ALSO MEANS TRADING NATE FOR THAT BUM LUCAS...
EVEN IF I WAS ON THE FENCE ABOUT BOOZ/***,
THE LUCAS **** IS THE DEAL BREAKER.
At the end of the day, Nate ain't gonna get significant minutes when Rose comes back, and we more than likely can't afford to keep him after this season. As much as I love what Nate brings to the team, what Boozer brings on the defense end is an atrocity. Bargs has also has never played with an MVP type player, and a great coach like Thibs. Bargs can fit the system and be a catch and shoot guy. Rebounds won't be that big of a deal because we have an advantage in that area every night. Loozer also stays padding his rebounding numbers...
