I didn;t list Mercer as a positive. Just listed as one of his big post-MJ moves and explained that Mercer was the only one who would take the money.

I think at the end he was forced into making some win-now moves (Rose) as the rebuilding was not working and teams lose patience.

Curry and Chandler led the Bulls ot their first playoff appearance in 6 years - which is exactly the same number of playoff appearances as Brand...then Chand was there for a 2nd one. One more than Brand.

...and again, rebuilding after a period of great success is extremely hard. Give the dude a break. How many guys draft 5 NBA starters in 4 years?
