Should add DeRozan is not a superstar. No one currently on the Bulls is a superstar. It's hard to contend for a championship without one.
Kind of my point.. This is a 3 year deal.. they could move him down the road if they're aren't improving or improve elsewhere around him. The FO is just not gonna stand pat for 3 years and be like "this is our team."
The Spurs roster wasn't ever really a contending roster once Leonard got hurt (and then traded). The Raptors certainly thought they could contend, but couldn't beat LeBron.
I don't expect the Bulls to contend for a championship next season.
Carlos Boozer was the starting PF, not Gibson. Boozer was a two time All-Star who's best days were behind him at that point, but still a solid signing (though disappointing after not getting any of LeBron-Wade-Bosh).You think:
Is better than the proposed starting 5 next season?
(EDIT: NVM YOU ALREADY ANSWERED)Carlos Boozer was the starting PF, not Gibson. Boozer was a two time All-Star who's best days were behind him at that point, but still a solid signing (though disappointing after not getting any of LeBron-Wade-Bosh).
Rose was a superstar at that time giving that lineup another bump. Noah and Deng hadn't yet reached their low tier All-Star levels, but would shortly. The bench of that team was better than this team now.
So overall, I think 2010-11 wins, but that's also because we know what 2010-11 did.
Ball is not Rose, Lavine is leagues better than Bogans, but not a superstar. Getting DeRozan is kinda like getting Boozer, thoug totally different style of players... Vuc at this time is better than Noah (again, also very different games). Deng is better than PWill at this time.
I keep saying that the idea is that PWill needs to be that superstar. He has the tools, and now with this surrounding cast he will have much less pressure and can just play.Should add DeRozan is not a superstar. No one currently on the Bulls is a superstar. It's hard to contend for a championship without one.
So with the first wave of moves... We are looking at:
Lauri (VERY likely gone)
Troy Brown Jr.
Need a few more backup bigs.
Meh. Giannis is jumping over everyone. He’s unstoppable. Bulls weren’t going to end up as title favorites after this off season. I think they surpassed expectations though. AKME slayed it4 guys under 6'7 in the starting line up. I get positionless NBA BB, but Giannis is jumping over everyone, including Vuc. Hopefully Marko can play or the Bulls are getting beat to death in the paint.
Drafting is the best way to acquire a superstar. The vast majority of superstars are drafted in the Top 5, with #1 having the most, #2 and #3 are the next most. Generally, if you draft a superstar, unless you truly run your team into the ground Sixers style, this superstar is going to massively improve your team to knock you out of draft position to acquire a second superstar.I think this team is just a 5-6th seed with this roster. They get an A for effort though for putting this team together. It is what it is there were no big time stars available, no big time star demanded to be traded to the bulls, and still no indication a big star wants to even come here anyways. So this is prob the best they could come up with instead of sitting on picks hoping they draft the next super star
