Default Aaron Afflalo…

Well Afflalo has had a stunning pre-season thus far I'd say

Hope this is a sign of good things to come and hopefully he will be able to contribute…

I have a feeling we may be relying on heavily Stuckey for PG duties… (I am genuinely concerned about Billups durability this season) With Stuckey possibly seeing more time and possible starter time if Billups continues to have injury issues, Afflalo will be the next guard off the bench and having him play well will immensely help the team.


Good job on playing well, Aaron!

Chauncey definately does seem more injury prone now. I'd love to see Afflalo step up like he says he can. He had a good summer league too. I think we all know Stuckey is going to play quite a bit, but if something happens to Rip or Chauncey those other guys are going to get thrown right in the mix.

For anybody who didn't see the double 0T game Wednesday against the Rockets Arron Affalo went off for 24pts on 7-13 shooting, 4-6 from 3pt range and 6-6 from the FT line.

He had a 16pt game Tuesday against the Mavs on 6-12 shooting, and 4-7 from 3pt range.

Joe Dumars knows what he is doing when it come to drafting players. Afflalo and Stuckey are going to be a killer backcourt in the near future.

Afflalo has been playing nice lately. He's stepped up with Rip and AI being injured. Imagine if we didn't have such a logjam at SG and he actually had opportunities to play all season long. It's one thing for a player to put up a couple nice games, I want to see what he can do for an entire season.

Meh… its hit or miss with Dumars and draft picks. We are talking about the guy who drafted, Mateen Cleaves, Rodney White (WTF?)… among other things. Jury is still out on Amir and he hasn't really been all that spectacular, but then Amir was a late 2nd round pick…

But then Dumars has drafted some studs like Memo, Tayshaun, Stuckey & Afflalo, and Maxiell too.

Hit or Miss.

I like Afflalo and it is good to see him make the best of his time out there on the floor. I still remember the night in Denver where he nailed 7 clutch free throws… ice in his veins!

I'm actually very disappointed with Maxiell. It seems like since it isn't a contract year anymore he just isn't stepping up. With all these injuries lately you would think he would be producing a little more. It's not like he isn't playing at all. Right now I wouldn't mind if we used him as trade bait. I think Amir has more upside. He does more of the intangible things. I don't think either one will be an all-star caliber player.

Maxiell is just about dunking, nothing else.
Amir Jhonson is foul machine, he cant stay in a game more then 15 minutes.
Kwame is playing fine.
Dyess is stepping it up, but hopefully he isnt getting tired and be ready by playoffs.
Afflalo after 2 great games, he is back to earth lately..
Will bynum is playing great, and better then stuckey lately. This has to do with Stuckey being worn out IMO. It seems to me he needs a bit of rest.
Tayshaun prince is stepping it up again..


There is desperate need for the return of AI/RIP/Sheed or else Bulls will take that 7th spot.Their schedule is hell alot easier.

I really like what the Bulls did at the trade deadline. They got a lot better. Salmons is a very under rated guy in the league IMO. Miller may be old but he's still got some game left. I think the Bulls have a very good chance of getting the 7 seed.

saw that **** in the main forum. I know we have too many guards, but for his salary, its not worth trading him. We arent going to get a decent big with 4 mil (since all the decent ones except milsap already signed).

Yup, if we are to trade him it better be for a young Center or something. And yeah, there isn't a big difference in talent between a 3 mil player and a 4 mil player.

Is Joe D just trying to make the Nuggets better??? Why trade him instead of Maxiell? Also why is he trying to make a trade to sign someone who basically is Maxiell (Big baby Davis). Sure Davis is a bit better but they are both very similiar players.

Then we run into the what if he trades Rip scenario. Who would the back up SG be then? I don't see any reason to get rid of Afflalo at this point. He's not a guy who can be a starter in this league but he is a nice back up and we have him for a good price.

If he trades Afflalo he is pretty much saying he is keeping rip and Gordon will be the backup
