Terrible draft
Sorry, I just had to let my frustration out.

I hated this draft for the simple fact that we got 2 guys fall into our laps in Aldridge (who many pegged as the no.1 pick before Colangelo fell in love w/ Bargnani) and Rodney Carney who was a heralded defensive-stopper type player. And then we trade them for a Stromile Swift no.2 and like I said in a previous post ; Yaroslav Korolev no.2 oh, and a guy who probably won't find time off the bench in Khyrapa.

The Bulls better sign someone damn good in the draft cuz I doubt these rooks help us.

an idea
how about sign darius washington jr, trade duhon (lets face it his value is at a all time high for him, he's not gonna get any better than what he is right now) for next years draft pick, and get pau gasol (he's the best big man, we can get without giving up too much). im being realistic here. cuz there is no way in hell we get garnett, i hate all the rumors GARNETT,garnett........ even though i would love to see it HE WILL NEVER BE A BULL! and no this was not a terrible draft, just a not so good one.

Tyrus Thomas is much better then Stromile Swift. Swift is a selfish meathead who was hyped based on his athleticism. Tyrus Thomas is a smart player who has a lot more all around skill then Swift, he is also much tougher. If you watched the tournament you saw that besides defense and hustle points Thomas was a good passer and a decent shooter. He isn't as big as swift but he is much, much better.

Rodney Carney is Joe Average SG. Can someone please tell me what makes him any different from Jarvis Hayes? Streaky jumper, mediocre handles, lack of strength.

And he is not that good of a defensive player. Ask Adam Morrison who couldn't stop scoring on him when they played.

Why do people like Carney so much? He's barely 6'5". Even Brandon Roy...didn't Morrison put up 43 on Roy and the Huskies? I thought him and Bobby Jones were such good defenders? Carney can't create his own shot. He would kill with someone like Kidd at the point, just because he would catch a lot of alley oops. He's a poor mans Iguodala at best. Bye Carney and hello Sefolosha! Aldridge is another story. We'll see what happens with him. I like Tyrus and his energy. Him and Tyson will be nice to watch. Thomas will forever be compared to Aldridge though. I think the Bulls did great in the draft even thought I REALLY wanted them to get Brewer. I literally fell to the floor when they reported that the pick Philly made was actually for the Bulls. I thought the Bulls had a shot at Brewer. My wife thought I was nuts for falling like a ton of bricks. I trust Pax and the scouts though...go Bulls!!!

Thabo over Carney
Carney makes little sense for the Bulls because he is not a ball handler. He is a dunker and jump shooter. The Bulls liked Thabo because he can handle and distribute the ball. They wanted someone who could play the point next to Gordon. The only guys who could play the 2 and the 1 were Roy, Sefolosha, and Brewer. Paxson obviously thought Thabo was better than Brewer, and I also think Paxson didn't see as big a gap between Roy and a player like Thabo as there was between Thomas and other players at the four. The next 4 drafted was Cedric Simmons that's a pretty big gap.

I also think Khryapa will be a good role player for the Bulls. He came out of a highly structured and defensive struture in CSKA Moscow. Playing for a structured team like the Bulls will help him. I think he would be upgrade over Songalia.
