Chicago Bulls Waived Keith Bogans

Not too surprisingly, the Bulls sent Keith Bogans packing today. From the Chicago Tribune: “Bogans started all 82 games for the Bulls last season. He got pulled off the practice floor just before the first practice of training camp last week. The Bulls held a $1.73 million team option on Bogans. He is drawing interest from several teams. ‘We have great appreciation for what he did,’ coach Tom Thibodeau said. ‘I thought he had an unbelievable year for us last year. He filled his role, played great defense, knocked down open 3s. He’s the consummate professional. We wish him well.’”

    I’ma just comment on this by using some of my tweets:
    12:46 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web·-NO!!!!!!!! Not BOGANS!!!!
    12:49 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web -So does that mean Rose won’t sign his extension now since he said he’s “rolling with Keith”?
    12:49 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · Rose last week: “I’m rolling with Keith” Rose this week: “Did we sign Rip yet?”
    12:50 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · Keith Bogans: “Sh*t was all good just a week ago”.
    12:56 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · If Keith somehow lands on the Heat, I’ma be p*ssed. Anywhere else, I really don’t care.
    1:17 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · Without Bogans and Thomas, Bulls DO lose like 50% of their toughness tho, the other 50% comes from Rose.
    1:30 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · Boozer and Noah are loud, but not tough. If they were tough they wouldn’t let opposing big men push Rose around.
    1:35 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · I guess Brewer is gonna play a ton of minutes today then
    1:48 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · JANNERO PARGO TOO? OH, THE HUMANITY!!!!!
    1:49 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · December 16, 2011 – a day that will live in Bulls infamy. No Bogans. No Pargo. Gar/Pax, you two-headed monster…
    2:03 PM – 16 Dec 11 via web · @whitehoteboy Ha ha I’m just having fun with this. I will miss Bogans’ D and toughness tho.

    how many teams get to the conference finals, have the same starting SG for all 82 games PLUS playoffs, and then cut him before the next season starts? and im not even mad lol. bogans is terrible. i dont care how good is on D (his D is overrated anyways imo)

    being ‘Twitter-pals’ with Enig, you don’t have to follow Bulls updates, or comment on the boards really cause he gives ya all the info haahahaha.
    Anyways, don’t know why they’d just cut him. Though I’m not a huge Bogans fan. I appreciate D and all, but it’s the NBA, you gotta bring some offense to the table son


    I have a feeling he won’t be missed.
    Certainly not by me.
