    Jordan treated like a saint? Look at the hate he gets in this very thread. The same people applauding James for being a complete douche are the ones ripping on Jordan, probably because they know there hero will never be even within close distance of as good as Jordan was.

    Melo basically saying "I value the money more then ever winning a title" which is his perogative so no point ripping on him for that...as an NBA fan I'd rather see him going to a team that could compete, but what can you do.

    I forgot, for every negative thing you say about Lebron James you have to say 20 "Hail Lebron's" I better get on that.
    Remember folks, this guy likes lebron! Also you seem to think people care if you like Lebron, I doubt anyone does. I find people respond when someone post opinion as fact, like most of your post. For example to have any sort of proof that someone else wrote the letter?

    So do they plan on playing Gibson at the 3? Otherwise the Pau signing seems strange to me. You have Noah at center, taj and pau at PF and they are tringing to bring that kid over from Spain. who I thought was a PF. Where do all the minutes go?

    I never ONCE said I liked Lebron. I just said I didn't hate him, huge difference. Do you REALLY think that Lebron wrote that? If so I weep for the state of our educational system.

    Paul Pierce to Wizards for 2 years 11m..interesting decision there. Could be nice to have veteran leadership on that team.

    NOOOOO WE LOST PP?!

    That's not even a bad contract. Only $5.5 a year.

    Actually I'm not gonna lie. PP had a little too much confidence for game winning shots. However, I do feel bad that him and KG had to play so many minutes for the Nets since others were injured. That wasn't nice.

    Did I say any of these things? No. Drop your infantile sense of superiority.

    High school is completely different then a professional league, sorry.
    You realize teams hold pep rallies for fans all the time right? The Heat did the same thing when Shaq showed up. They did the same thing after they won in 2006. 2012. 2013. It's their thing. Toronto held pep rallies during this past season's playoffs. Not sure why this is such a sticking point for you. I'm done talking about this.

    You think players disliking each other and wanting to tear each others throats out on the court is fake drama, comparable to that crap? Please..
    Does it matter if it's "fake" or "real"? It's still drama. It still sells. People sure as hell didn't watch games between intense rivals because it was a reflection of their own lives, or a matter of coming of age.

    I think I know quite a bit about the sour bitterness of rivalry, the putrid taste of defeat that comes with it. The Heat couldn't buy a god damn win against the Knicks in the 90s when it came to the post-season. This despite our higher (sometimes significantly so) seeding. These teams hated each other passionately. Where has that led them ultimately? None of these players hate each other anymore. Hell, these teams don't even hate each other anymore.

    The only place where this bitter 90s rivalry resonates is amongst the fans who witnessed it. Is it real because it was cursory? Does it matter? The outcome was still WWE spectacle. I don't care for it.

    Jordan treated like a saint? Look at the hate he gets in this very thread. The same people applauding James for being a complete douche are the ones ripping on Jordan, probably because they know there hero will never be even within close distance of as good as Jordan was.
    This is really desperately grasping at straws... Jordan from the overwhelming majority is treated like a saint. What some random dudes say on what is effectively an irrelevant forum does not reflect the public discourse in the slightest. I have made it a point not to compare the two, or many other players for that matter. You end up losing sight of why you love the game. You've made this mistake before but you seem to apply what other people have said while regarding me. Stop.

    I forgot, for every negative thing you say about Lebron James you have to say 20 "Hail Lebron's" I better get on that.
    There's a difference between dickriding a player, and engaging with someone who is apparently incapable of holding rational discourse.

    I think the Idea is not to have to ride Noah so hard. He has a history of injuries, plantar fasciitis in particular. If they're not going to pay him what the Lakers offered it's not a bad deal. If they're paying him what the Lakers were willing to, then it's a bad deal for the Bulls. I think Gibson will be starting Pf Noah is starting center, with Mirotic backing up Gibson, and Gasol backing up Noah. I don't know much about Mirotic but he may be able to play at the 3.

    I'm still expecting them to attempt a trade this year.

    I started reading this quote, and half way through I was like "I bet Gumboy wrote this". Sure enough I was right. How sad is that?

    Starting to wonder if the Bulls wont just keep Boozer on the roster. His expiring contract could be valuable in a trade later this year.

    I absolutely died laughing when Melo said some shit like "my heart was still in New York"

    Im not sure thats it buddy. Pretty sure your wallet was aching even more
