Hardly up-and-coming

As a big-time Bulls fan, I must say I'm a little disappointed in where the team is going.  I do like Derrick Rose and think he'll be a solid pro.  But I don't think he's necessarily a team centerpiece like LeBron or Kobe.

Too many "complimentary" players like Luol Deng, Ben Gordon, and Tyrus Thomas.  They added some vets in Brad Miller and Tim Thomas, but I think those are just short-term fixes.

It'll be interesting to see where they go in this summer's draft.  I guess logic would say they'll target a big man to play the yin to Rose's yang.

I can only rate them as +3 right now.  If they draft a nice big man, I'll up my rating and get excited about Bulls basketball again!

If they did, it likely would be a sign-and-trade deal. Here's what I'd like to see: sign-and-trade Gordon, plus Tyrus Thomas, and one of their two 1st round draft picks for Amare Stoudemire.  &nb …
