Bulls Trade Pick and Kirk

June 24, 2010

Star date 2010, the Chicago Bulls, have, decided to, trade, Kirk Hinrich and their first round pick, to, the Washington Wizards.  What, does this mean, for the Bulls future, and what does it mean for the free agency class.

You were supposed to pause everytime I had a comma.  It was suppose to sound like Captain Kirk from Star Trek aka William Shatner.  Get it?  Good.  So yeah anyway, that happened.

I’m going to make this post pretty short because I’m tired and I want to go to bed.  As I wrote that last sentence I thought of this scene from Jaws. Put that has literally nothing to do with post.  I just really like that scene of the movie.

So anyway (awkward pause)….  the Bulls have a deal in place to get rid of Captain Kirk to free up even more cap space for the free agency bonanza that starts July 1st.  With this deal done, the Bulls would be able to afford not 1 but 2 top tier free agents.  That would mean that theoretically Lebron James and Dwayne Wade could both come to Chicago.  W.O.W.

I don’t think that will happen, but it’s technically possible with this deal.  In reality, I think this deal sets up a Chris Bosh/Joe Johnson signing.  It makes much more sense and would still make this Bulls team a top contender in the Eastern Conference.

As much as I love Kirk, and I do because I always felt he had a presence on the team unlike anybody else, I love this deal.  IF we get 2 top tier free agents.  IF we don’t then we lose a proven team leader.  A solid defender.  And a team and fan favorite.  Then again getting both Chris Bosh and Joe Johnson would make this team freakin’ fantastic and close up pretty much every weakness.

The starting lineup would be Derreck Rose, Joe Johnson, Loul Deng, Chris Bosh, and Joakim Noah.  That puts this team right up there with the Celtics, Magic, and Cavs (2009/2010 version).

    Yeah, probably a good move. Why not? This is the NBApocalypse and the Bulls need to get them some big-time players if they plan to survive the assault of worthless zombie teams they will be facing for the next 5 years.

    At this point, I’m on the Lebron-or-Bust bandwagon. The Bulls have made (and continue to make) all the concessions to get this guy. They are a major market city with a winning a tradition and a star player in D-Rose who LeBron has never been paired with. Needless to say, I’ve convinced myself this is a realistic possibility.

    He hits it long. His shoulders are impressively quick through the ball. That’s where he’s getting his power from. He’s young and has great elasticity.
