I LOVE how the Bulls have been playing lately, but I"m REALISTIC in recognizing that they will not win a title this year, and likely not next. Changes need to be made. The FO is too... content?... to be competitive, rather than risking competitiveness to shoot for greatness (with the obvious caveat that failing means being terrible).

Look, the league is set up where it is easy to be mediocre-to-good, but very, very hard to be great. Risks need to be taken, gambles need to pay off. But if you are unwilling to risk, or gamble, then you won't be great. This FO is too risk-averse.

I'd let them run my portfolio, but I'd rather they not run my team.

You made some valid points and I am very eager to know from you, the specifics on the risks that they should make.
Trade Rose, Noah etc? to get who?
The team's lineup looked pretty good before the season started, eventhough I felt they should have kept Marco and Nate.
ANY team would surely fail to win it all if their top superstar goes down for the season.
