He's an upgrade for Chicago, but they still have only one guy that can get his own shot. Actually makes me wonder if it helps them with Miami at all.

In the past Hamilton has given Wade fits

That's definitely gone both ways. Wade torched that Pistons team twice in the playoffs. That was back when Hamilton wasn't in his 30's.

Besides, with Shane Battier they can rotate him, Wade and LeBron on RIP. Battier probably gets the nod the most.

True, but I'd be surprised if it doesn't happen. Although the Clippers seem interesting now in need of a SG of his talents as well, but obviously the Bulls are closer to making a Finals push than the Clippers are.

14 pts vs 4.4 points is going to make a difference I think. We still need to mature and add maybe one more piece.

Looks that way now, but the West looks a lot more wide open than the East. Miami still looks to be the far and away best team in the East. With Dallas and the Lakers looking to be weaker this year, the Clippers could easily slip through. I actually might like them more than Chicago with having two stars as opposed to Chicago just having one.
