and the best one on one post defender in basketball.

GeeWiz, PJ is not the best post defender in basketball. Calm down. (atleast not anymore, in his heyday he was bad dude). Calm down.

Coming up on the age of 37, he'll still give very solid contributions though. Hard nosed mf'er. Will rub off on the whole team.

Cant do it huh? I didnt think so. When it comes to actually trying to break down the game of basketball and/or player you lack confidence. Notice how your last 3 replies repeat one another? There is a reason. Deshawn Stevenson has talent.

Villy and Deng are three timews the player JR Smith. JR Smith has 2yrs in the league where he had all the oppurtunity in the world. What has he done in the NBA that Villy and Deng havent? He's done diick so far.

I hate to see Tyson go, but with acquiring Big Benny the Bull, it had to be done.

We got some serious depth right now....

Kirk/Duhon
Gordon/Thabo
Deng/Noc/Smith
PJ Brown/Thomas/Sweets
Wallace/Songalia(?)

Nocioni could be starting at PF. He was putting up nearly 20 and 10 the last month and a half at that position. Bulls will be crashing the boards and running whenever it's possible.

Yeah I thought that too, but it seems like Bulls prefer/need his energy off the bench.

I must it admit I am not sure of the JR Smith scenario, Odds are he's just going to be a tradable asset for later on in the season because Although he has a lot off potential with the depth in the wing positions he isn't going to get the time to develop any of it!

Then again may be it's a plan to add depth at SF so they can move Deng some where as part of a package some where?

Default My take

Basically this gets rid of a huge cap albatross, Chandler was signed for 64 million over 6 years, whats worse is that his contract was back loaded. This meant his salary would be greatest when we are also trying to resign the core. Personally I think this is a great move as it allows us to keep the core together and still have some cap flexibility. PJ Brown can still play and is a better fit next to Ben Wallace then Tyson Chandler, Chandler has no offense and with Ben on the floor would kill the Bulls offensively. It wasn't just about cap space it was also about the future, Chandler and Big Ben is horrid offensively.

J.R Smith is a big, athletic, 2 gaurd who is decent at shooting. He gives the Bulls some security in case Thabo doesn't pan out. He can also be a tradeable asset.

You tellin me that prime PJ Brown was not a good post defender?

Who exactly is better? I dunno if you noticed but freaking nobody in this league knows how to defend the post. And nbody in this league is tough. PJ's both. He's the best by default, I don't care how old he is.

It's either him or Duncan. KG is a perimiter defender... Ben can't play one on one. Shaq is damn good but can get got with pumpfakes and doesn't put his all into it. Dikembe? Old as dirt. Yao? Could be, but he doesn't really have toughness or endurance, or any kind of movement. The Chandlers and etc etc in the league that could be are too foul prone and against any skilled post player will be in foul trouble half the game.

PJ is the master of the pick and pop, a well above average rebounder, mentally and physically tough, a veteran leader, a perfect FT shooter and yes, the best post defender in basketball. This is a great pickup for the Bulls. No, he's no star, no, he doesn't block shots, no, he won't give you anything more than 10/10, yes, he's 56 years old, but he's a big guy who knows how to play the game. The Shane Battier of PF/Cs plus 10 years of age. bulls did good on this one.

Nice trade. PJ still has game at 37, and he can teach as well. JR SMith is talented, can give you some highlights, and is a trading cheap, because I can't dude being on the same page with Scott Skiles. Not knocking JR, but Scott Skiles isn't the type of dude that seems to embrace players with scoring talent.
