Gotta switch to quick recaps if I have any chance of remaining relevant as we approach the All Star game… Sorry guys, I really enjoyed breaking down the games, but competing priorities have finally taken their toll.
Bulls lost a tight one last night. What did we learn? That Jimmy Butler shouldn’t be taking the last shot? That DJ Augustin is underutilized even though he’s pretty effective shooting the ball? Or that the Washington Wizards, (one night after bulldozing the Miami Heat) are a .500 ball club and the Bulls are not? Just some things to think about.
The Bulls look to continue to clear cap space according to Woj of Yahoo.com… Looks like Teague will be headed to Brooklyn in exchange for Toko Shengelia. It appears that he has been spending much of his time in the D-League as well. Teague’s contract was guaranteed so it appears that this Nets project can be dumped at the end of the season.
I wasn’t around to react to the Lu salary dump but I’m really sad. Part of me understands that a move had to be made to offer the organization some flexibility in the future, but another part of me just wanted to see Rose, Deng and Noah win a ring together. So much of what those players are about and what they represent just screams CHICAGO. Will always have love for the Bulls and these three players in particular. Good Luck Lu. Give ‘em hell in Cleveland.
I’ll do a better recap of the Philly contest, just want to wave to everyone and let you know that I’m still here, I’m still riding with the squad and will be giving you whatever I can.
