First things first ….. I am true Chicagoan. I have not been born there, but I have been there most of my life. Been there when I was about a year old from Korea and been there until I went to college at Michigan State. After that I lived there until 1999 and then moved back in 2005, been there since ….
All the Bulls fans knew that Tom Thibodeau was not going to be back next year, this morning it was official by the Bulls. I know that there is a mixed feelings about him in Chicago. There are some of the people that don’t like him, and there are others that do. There are others that like him but feel that it is time for him to leave. I mean his job was to bring a title to Chicago, and after the embarrassment a few weeks ago, everyone knows that its over.
Myself feel that the window was about 5 years ago and its has been closed since then. I am sorry but the MVP D. Rose will never come back. And even though Butler heading to become a NBA star, that is not enough. I don’t think that he is going to be a superstar and the team and the city has just been holding that team too long.
For me, I do not blame everything to Coach Thibs. I actually blame more to the Bulls management. For the last five years its pretty much the same team, and every year the fans hope (pray) that the Bulls are going to the NBA Finals. That is not going to happen. The Bulls are not that good, sorry. First things first, they are in the WEAK East, and because of that, on record they look good with W and L’s. If the Bulls were in the West they would not look that good. Still, that is not it ….
The Bulls the last few years, they get in the play offs and they just …… stink. For the last few years you would think that the Bulls would re load or make the team better, but thats not what they do. Pretty much they just wait for Rose to come back and they assume that when he come back it means FINALS. News flash – NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ….
The fans have seen “The Return” and what happen, he just get hurt again. It was bad enough that he took the LONGEST REHAB EVER for ACL injury; its just it did not same to come back. He was there and you blink and next thing you know, he was injured again. Plus his comments about his future son’d graduation and going to meetings was not great. I used to be a Rose fan, but after his 18 month rehab, I just lost interest. He is just like any other NBA player that only care about himself and thats it. Yeah, he should worry about his health and everything but you know what, you are paid to play basketball for the Bulls and his his salary, that means he is suppose to be the best. I am sorry, he is not the best on the team and they way he thinks, he does not care. Its all about dollars …..
PLEASE BRING FREE AGENTS OR TRADE TO MAKE THE BULLS BETTER!!!! ….. For the last few years not never happen. The Bulls just bring in second trier players in the city and they just assume thats enough. They bring in Pau Gasol, sure he is a good player but he is not in the top list of players that are out there. Butler became a great player but a few years ago when they drafted him, did they think he was going to be the player that he is now? They drafted him because he was a great defensive player. NOONE thought that he was going to a player that he is now.
I am tired of people that think that the regular season does not matter. YES IT DOES!! The Bulls became worse not better during the season. They used to be a great defensive team, but during the season they forget how to play defense. The team and the players thought that they could have beat anyone at will, they just have to turn in on or off. You know what, they can’t
The firing of Coach Thib and the Bulls is just a fail example that the Bulls are just a NBA team. Not a great team ….. and Bulls Dynasty in the 90’s will probably never come back again for a long time
