TBLA. 2-10

I had to wait a few hours to cool down after seeing the bulls lose their fourth straight game. The road trip was a complete disaster with the bulls picking up one win in six tries. I am completely embarassed to call the bulls my team and I am thisclose to packing it in for the '07-08 season.

I think it's safe to say that this week should be Scott Skiles' last week as coach of the bulls. I am sick and tired of reading the same inept quotes from him, game after game. This team is obviously learning nothing from its past mistakes and continues to find new and more embarassing ways to lose.

Yesterday, we caught an L against the Knicks. The Knicks. The muthaphuqin' Knicks. I don't even know where to begin with analysis of that massive L. We didn't even crack 80 points against the Knicks. The Isiah Thomas-led Knicks. Stephon Marbury's Knicks. The supermassive-payroll-havin', sexual harassment case-catchin' Knicks. When your team loses to the Knicks, go ahead and start booking hotel rooms in Secaucus.

Z-Bo and Eddy Curry are ready to slaughter an all-you-can-eat buffet after slaughtering the bulls:

The bulls brass thought it would be a good idea to hold the untradeable Luol Deng out of the game against the Knicks because they didn't think his back would hold up under the grind of back-to-back games. You know, since in the NBA you only have to play your best guys when they're perfectly healthy and the games that you sit them out don't really count. Anyways, Luol managed to work his way back in the line up and put up 21 and 9 in the losing effort. I guess that plan worked, eh Skiles?

Chris Bosh gleefully reviews the score in the final seconds of the Raptors' win over the bulls:

Let's see what else happened with our "best" players in the past two disgusting losses:

-Kirk Hinrich: 84 minutes, 26 points on 11-29 shooting, 3-9 from 3 point land, 1-1 from the free throw stripe; 6 rebounds, 11 assists, 5 turnovers, 8 fouls.
-Ben Gordon: 78 minutes, 30 points on 11-35 shooting, 1-6 from 3 point land, 7-7 from the free throw stripe; 6 rebounds, 7 assists, 7 turnovers, 4 fouls.
-Ben Wallace: 79 minutes, 8 points on 4-10 shooting, 0-1 from 3 point land, 0-2 from the free throw stripe; 17 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 turnover, 5 fouls.
-Andres Nocioni: 72 minutes, 34 points on 11-30 shooting, 5-15 from 3 point land, 7-13 from the free throw stripe; 17 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 turnovers, 7 fouls.
-Tyrus Thomas: 34 minutes, 11 points on 4-13 shooting, 3-5 from the free throw stripe; 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 turnovers, 7 fouls.

These numbers are feces.

It is very safe to say that the bulls will not be among the elite teams in the NBA this season. I don't know where it all went wrong but it is very disturbing and very sad. The management of the bulls failed to address the teams' weaknesses coming into this season and those weaknesses have been exploited at every opportunity. The strengths that the bulls once had have vanished into the past and the only thing looming on the horizon is a shot at the number one draft pick in 2008. It is possible that the bulls can turn things around but there have been absolutely no signs that they are capable or even willing to get back to their winning brand of basketball.

If you'll excuse me, I will now eat my bulls fitted cap.
