    "Instead, the Pistons may opt to beef up their backcourt and to move to a more up-tempo style with Rasheed Wallace at five and Antonio McDyess at the four."

    And they are absolutely delusional if they think this will work for an entire season.

    eh, pistons won't be hurt that much. wallace is a vastly overrated defender and is no longer a dominant rebounder (fourth in the league last season). the bulls will regret the deal next season. $13 mil to play four-on-five offense and all you get are a few flashy weak-side blocks. just a terrilble deal.

    The absolute truth!
    One of the most overrated players in the NBA. No way worth $60 mill over 4 years.

    The Bulls were 41-41 this year. They'll be 46-35 next year. And in three years, they'll be wondering what the hell they were thinking.

    Are they going to wonder why they only played 81 games? :D ;)

    When Sacramento comes to town, Wallace will throw Artest to the ground. Then the Chicago fans will show those Detroit pussies how to fight with NBA players.

    After that, the game will be cancelled.

    Yeah, and in four years the Knicks still will be digging themselves out of the Isiah-Layden quagmire. :D

    The Bulls are rolling the dice for the next two years, much like Miami did when it traded for Shaq. How did that work out for them? And the Bulls get the Knicks' lottery pick next year, which figures to be high.

    Oh, here's Sam Smith's take:

    the difference between shaq and ben:

    shaq -- on his last legs -- averaged 20 and 9.
    ben in hs prime? 7 and 11

    and then there's the little matter of the bulls not having dwyane wade.

    let's clear something up here. the bulls are NOWHERE CLOSE to winning an nba title.

    hinirich, gordon, nocioni, deng, wallace, thomas, chandler? not a championship club. they may hold opponents to 80. but they are scoring 70.

    They gave Miami fits in the first round. If you'd read the column, you'd realize that the Bulls are on the verge of trading Chandler to the Hornets for P.J. Brown, a proven front-line veteran. And Hinrich, Gordon, Nocioni, Deng and Thomas will be a year older and wiser. They may not be a championship team yet, but how many teams have a brighter future than the Bulls.
