Re: John Paxson appreciation post
Neone talkin bullchit about Paxson getting rid of curry and chandler need to give it a rest. I dont think Chandler was going to have the season he had in New Orleans w/ Chicago. With the hornets he can roam free and doesnt have ne where near as much defensive responsibility. He would still be gettting in mad foul trouble if he was on the bulls. I mean yea i think having him would be for the better in like 3 years when Bwallace is too old, but it's nice having an experienced guy to teach younger players things about winning. I mean you really can't blame Pax for going after Big Ben, even if he overpayed. He took the 4 time defensive player of the year from a division rival, and though the pistons beat the bulls in the playoffs, Detroit went from 64 wins 2 years ago to 53 wins, and they lost to Cleveland this year as oppose to beating them last year. Bulls improved in the win category and swept the defending champs in the first round to win their first playoff series since jordan. AS FOR CURRY, yea the Bulls would love his low post scoring and it would help take pressure of perimeter shooting immensely, but he plays absolutely no defense. I mean you can't give a guy guaranteed millions, upon millions to be a franchise cornerstone when you dont't a clue what is wrong with his heart after 5 months of testing by renouned doctors nation wide. Pax was willing to give him the money, but the contract he offered would've given Curry his money later on to make sure that his heart was okay. It was a tough decision and it's one of those freak accidents, or should i say freak situations you can never count on happening. Pax rules, bulls in 08!
