    I assume Rip will be traded, which is not bad minus the injuries he’s a pretty good pick up for a playoff contender. We can get Lebron for him.

    On a serious note, Jimmy Butler is the real deal out there.

    too bad because last year when everyone was healthy, before Rose went down they were playing GREAT ball together. The group has real potential with Rip as the two but Reinsdorf would rather pay a little less tax then give them a chance.

  • roscoe

    you sound like a used car salesman w/ that Jimmy B attribution. why don’t you dangle Deng like an unneeded warranty.

  • Redd

    How about that Jimmy Butler, with his rebounding huh?

  • Redd

    I don’t think he’s the solution at the 2, he’s getting old and injured a lot. Marco would more so be a solution. We actually don’t even need a 2, we have a shot creating 3-4 coming soon in Mirotic.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Gilbert/100001749589586 Mike Gilbert

    Mirotic is not coming soon…what in like 3 years? Why think about that when we have a core that can contend now. For the next 3 years we need a 2. Marco is not bad by any means but he could without a doubt be improved upon. As long as Rip stays healthy he can be that guy. But who knows if that is possible so I’m fine with whatver move they decide to make. If he does go, it will be nice to see Jimmy get a little increase in mins

  • Redd

    He won’t stay healthy.

    But Mirotic is coming, he’s said so himself but the question is when not if. He’s eligible for a buyout next year I believe if not the year after. He will come however.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Gilbert/100001749589586 Mike Gilbert

    If they don’t trade him I believe he can stay healthy and be the answer….but cmon man don’t be already looking to Mirotic who isn’t coming for 1-3 years (I doubt he comes until 3 but i’ll humor you)!!!…..we have a solid contender of a team if Rose can come back strong. Worry about the Now!

  • Redd

    I by no means think we should be hanging our hats on Mirotic but he definitely is star potential. I feel Jimmy is too but he isn’t as likely as Mirotic to break through.

    But it’s definite that Rip won’t stay healthy. You can’t even try to argue his durability at his age. It’s just not there.

    I think the bulls will make a go at JJ Reddick. From what I understand he’s going to be on the market around the deadline. He’s not really part of Orlando’s rebuilding plan.

  • Mackenzie Kerridge

    Marco is not the solution, period. Guy can’t defend a parked car.

  • roscoe

    i will have to watch him a little more before i pass judgement…

  • Redd

    Nor in the Bull’s plans. He’s a small guard, doesn’t fit alongside Rose unless he’s playing back up PG which I doubt.

  • Redd

    Nor is Rip, I’d take Marco on D over Rip any day.

  • Redd

    You should, hes insane with his reboundingz always seems to pull in boards, including on Offense.

  • Josh

    Teletovic from Nets is to good to be sat on the Bench! A stretch 4!

  • https://twitter.com/jasontichenor Mr. Wet

    Well, he did fit in the Bull’s plan beside rose. Since the contract he’s playing on was drafted by the Bull’s and was matched by Orlando.

  • https://twitter.com/jasontichenor Mr. Wet

    And back up point guard? Really?

  • Redd

    Not at the 2 spot, it was probably to back up Rose but not alongside Rose.

  • https://twitter.com/jasontichenor Mr. Wet

    Do you know who JJ Reddick is?

  • chauncey

    are you kidding me? do you watch any bulls games? marco plays pretty good defense, he pressures up very tight on his defense, and marco is a better defender than hamilton.

  • Redd

    Yes, he’s too small for Thibs’ ferocious want at D. At the 2 spot there’s plenty guys who can out muscle him. Redick at the 2 is idiotic, you can find someone way better at the 2.

  • K Dub

    @Red7252:disqus are you like a blogger for the Bulls? You seem to know alot about them and have really good insight. Secondly do you have a twitter? I would like to follow you

  • Redd

    No, im not but wow I’m humbled man thanks. I been watching this team since before Rose and watch every game. This comment made my day tho unless I’m being trolled lol. I don’t have a twitter tho sorry man.
