My god are the Bulls such an ass backwards organization. Sign Boozer to that terrible contract just to amnesty him 3 years later. Let go of all their depth just to save some money. They should just move Boozer, if Joe Johnson and his cap crippling contract can get moved anyone's can.

Talking Re: ESPN: Bulls will likely extend Gibson, Amnesty Boozer

**** YEEES!!!

No more lazy, uninspired defense from that POS. Noah constantly had that "You kidding me?" face while covering Boozer's blown assignments on D. The guy gives up just as many points as he scores, now at least Gibson+Noah can shut down the paint. Taj can also finish with power and not get blocked like a bitch on pussyass lay ups. He has underrated athleticism.

Actually you drafted Aldridge, then traded him to Portland for Tyrus.

So many dumb moves. From 1999 - it's been one mistake after another. We luck into D. Rose, and then the kid has a career altering knee injury.

Post MJ curse? IDK. We never should've signed Boozer for that money from the get go. Ugh, I hate this team apart from Rose and Gibson.
I know what you mean, the FO doesn't even seem committed to winning championships. They are so cheap with money, in this era of super teams going over the cap for 3+ all-stars we got Chicago holding back, signing mediocre players for cheap and hoping Rose can solo 2-3 superstars. I wouldn't blame him if he left after being eliminated by OKC/MIA/Lakers 4 years in a row.

Default Re: ESPN: Bulls will likely extend Gibson, Amnesty Boozer

It made sense to amnesty Boozer last year, before Rose got his big extension. If they did it this Summer (deadline has passed) they wouldn't have any room for anyone else anyway. If he plays well this year, without Rose, he's suddenly valuable again.


Also, do people think Boozer is no longer a basketball player? He's not even that overpaid. It's just that his contract is 5 years long and the Bulls are spending lots of money on both Noah and Deng (and obviously now Rose).



If you wanna see a team that would be smart to take on Boozer, it's the Spurs...if the Bulls wanted rid of Boozer. Stephen Jackson (expiring) and Splitter (expiring and young, good, plays defense, can play PF/C, and much much cheaper)...


Do people think the Spurs wouldn't be able to get the best out of him?

This doesn't make as much sense now that we let Asik slip.

question to you and other bulls fans: isn't it starting to look like reinsdorf is just saving money while spending as little as possible to be competitive? it's just getting hard to ignore the pattern here.

you guys were contenders with rose and still would have been down the line when he's healthy. now you can't really say that. idk, i'd just be really upset to be that close and have it seem like the owner didn't want to take the next step.

I think it makes more sense. Boozer was better alongside Asik than he is alongside Noah. Noah moves around a lot and Boozer is too stupid and lazy to do anything. Asik is a more traditional center and takes up the middle.
