It's all about the heart. Mike James loved Houston and Wallace loved Detroit. They are still adjusting mentally to playing somewhere they really don't want to be. we'll see if it changes.

Biggest let-down so far has to be Wallace. His signing was hyped to be conference shaping. Not only was his going to Chicago supposed to improve the Bulls but his departure was to be devastating to the Detroit Pistons.

Wallace's numbers are not impressive and his play hasn't been either thus far. On top of that the Bulls are currently 8-9 while Pistons are 11-7.

Pistons have had one of the leagues easiest schedules so far. The Bulls started out 3-9, and now have won 5 straight post-circus trip.(with #6 looking like a great possibility against the 76ers)

For a team that is bashed constantly on this board they're only 2.5 games out of 1st place.

If Mike James loved Houston so much and his heart was there then why did he play his best bball in Toronto?

Mike James is a classic example of why winning is important to a players overall value and ranking.

People on here like to quote stats all day long, but hell, if a bad team gets beat 100-90 someone has to score soem of the ninety and playing for a bad team is an easy way to pad stats.

Toronto was a bad team, someone had to shoot, whynot a shoot first point guard?

How do you think Stephon got such good stats.

Good players are rarely on bad teams.

As someone who has played basketball I couldn't agree with you more. You just can't measure everything with stats.

its Ben Wallace by far that is the biggest dissapointment. his fg% and rebounds are way down and his fouls are up. he is sulking and arguing with the coach over petty crap.

James while not scoring as much, is at least still shooting 44% from three and 44% overall. he is playing a little bit better than he did in 04/05 which is what you should have expected. he isnt and was never gonna get to shoot nearly 16 times a game for Minny.

Ben's contract will make a lot more sensce come playoff time when the Bulls are playing Shaq and the Heat.
