No Truth to Bulls/Knicks Trade Chatter?

Peter Vescey says there’s absolutely nothing brewing between New York and Chicago: “The mind boggles and the mouse Googles: A comedic acquaintance, poetically licensed to twist the truth, finds it incredulous the Knicks supposedly would consider swapping essentially Al Harrington for Tyrus Thomas. ‘The Bulls knew Eddy Curry was a bum. They knew Tyson Chandler was a high-energy, injury-prone bum. Why would anyone want Tyrus? The Bulls may not be good at drafting players, but, for the most part, they have a pretty good bum detector.’ In fact, there’s absolutely no truth to it. The Bulls may want to go that route, but Walsh has not had a single conversation with them regarding such a swap.”

    i think the knicks at least match the bulls when it gets to draft some bums or give them a huge contract.

    i think the viper could have used a “no homo” there

  • Tommy Patron

    We’ll see.

    I just don’t believe any trade rumors involving the Knicks. Seriously, there’s always a thousand of them floating around and no one ever turns out to be true.

    Yeah there bum detector must of been defective when drafting derrick rose and joakim noah

    viper sucks

    everyteam drafts mistakes

    Still can’t quite understand how rumors like this emerge out of thin air. Where there’s smoke, there must at least be a smoker.

    Tim, you’re not calling Derrick Rose & Joakim Noah bums are you? Cause Rose is ont of the top PGs in the L & Noah’s #2 in the L in rebounds and averaging a double double so far this season. Those are the top 2 players in the Chi!!!

    As far as them having a pretty good “bum detector” where was it at when they decided to draft Dickey Simpkins, Jason Caffey, Travis Knight, Khalid El-Amin, Keith Booth, Corey Benjamin, Marcus Fizer, Chris Mihm, Jay Williams, Kirk Hinrich, and trade LaMarcus Aldridge for Tyrus Thomas??? I guess the bum detector’s been broke for the past 10 years or so. I bet Jerry Krause’s fat ass sat on it and broke it!

    Good, Knicks need Al and Bulls need Tyrus to block sh!t again; we suck now man!!!

    I think writers concoct random trade scenarios when there isn’t much else to write about. After awhile you just can’t write any more articles about A.I. having difficulty adjusting to certain roles, or Greg Oden being injury-prone. At some point, writers need to write about something new, so they make up random trades in order to analyze them and have more ideas to spin off. Half the time, if you just look at the salaries involved, you know the rumored trade is crap because it won’t work under the cap rules.

    ReppinChi-Town, I’m quite sure he is not bagging Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah.

    trade artest, becomes all star
    trade brad miller, 2 time all star.
    traded elton brand for chandler. don’t even have to explain that one…
    but chandler was an all star as well. probably would’ve worked pretty well with rose.
    i think chicago’s scouts were quite the opposite from bum detectors. they were pretty oblivious for a good span. more krause than anything.

    Bum detector.

    @airs: Chandler wasn’t an all star.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Chicago’s management is nowhere near as bad as New York’s. Okay, the Bulls management is pretty bad, but they were smart enough to KEEP THEIR FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICKS. What do the Knicks do for rebuilding? Screw a draft, they send away every decent play they have and wait for Free Agents who don’t even have any reason to come to New York! Oh, and they draft Renaldo Balk–woops, I meant Jordan Hill.

    A bum for a bum. I don’t see what’s the problem. Al Harrington is just an aged bum. That all.

  • jpen

    i dont see any problems with the players.. the problem is within the management, fire Garfield and Vinnie the pooh!! Lets hire Byron Scott as head coach as he may help in the development of DRose.

  • awhitey

    memyselfand9 you are retarted if you think rose and noah are bumbs!!!!

  • ilovekemp

    I really really love shawn kemp…

  • mems

    if zeke was still there this would be done by now and tyrus would be signed to a 10 year $500 million extention

    he would have also included the knicks next 6 first round picks if the pot was sweetened with jerome james.

    this trade wouldn’t make sense anyways. why trade one bum for another? why would anyone want to do any sort of deal with the knicks that doesnt include david lee? that is their one decent player and maybe chandler.
