    if sam smith writes it, it more than likely isn't true. and if it is? whoopee. the bulls get an offensively challenged 37-year-old center on his last legs to back up the offensively inept 32-year-old free-agent splash. or maybe the bulls will play them together and it will be a 3-on-5 offense! sweet.

    more good news? wallace's rebounding numbers have declined each of the past four years.

    How many teams in the NBA have a brighter future than the Bulls? I can think of only three -- DAL, PHX and LAC.

    Four, counting the Knicks.

    definitely better
    mavs, clippers, phoenix, spurs, cavs, heat, raptors

    maybe better
    rockets, magic, kings, blazers, nets

    future is a dangerous word. who knows what it holds? how can the bulls' future be that good if they depend on a 37-year-old and a 32-year-old?

    let's all remember: the bulls lost in the first round of the playoffs as a seventh seed. they weren't close to anything.

    the bulls don't have a superstar on the roster. most titles teams need two. most.

    Okay, seriously, do you know anything about the NBA? The Magic, Nets, Blazers, Kings and Rockets may be better than the Bulls? And the fucking Raptors are definitely better? I'm no longer discussing this with you, since you obviously have no clue.

    $60 million for a defensive specialist? I'll pass.

    Chicago better hope it made the right move, there's probably not much room for error. Cleveland and Milwaukee should improve, Toronto and Atlanta have already made significant moves. Boston could add Iverson.

    I think the Bulls are a four-seed at best next season.

    you said brighter futures. the only player in the bulls' roster with superstar potential is possibly tyrus thomas, and we just don't know.

    in the nba, it's all about the franchise players. the bulls don't have one.

    the magic have dwight howard, who most GMs talk about in the same hushed tones they reserve for lebron and wade, as far as potential.

    the raptors have chris bosh and bryan colangelo. colangelo's acqusition of tj ford tells me he will do his best to create the canadian version of the suns.

    the nets got to the second round of the playoffs, and got marcus williams and josh boone in the draft. williams is the ideal understudy for jason kidd, and boone is 6-10 and can run the floor. that's all you need to finish alley-oops with kidd.

    before yao broke his foot, he was the best center in the nba. look at the numbers. and t-mac, when healthy, is a good player. the bulls don't have two players better.

    the blazers got lamarcus aldridge and brandon roy on draft night, and have promising youth in jarrett jack, martell webster and travis outlaw. they are on the path to be just like the bulls.

    the kings? they gave the spurs all they could handle, blah, blah, blah, to use your argument. bibby, artest, miller are good players, and they have promising youth in douby and garcia and kevin martin.

    i also like the lakers' future with kobe, odom, vlad rad and bynum. bynum has a chance -- in three or four years -- to be a monster.
    but again, that's the future.

    remember when the suns came out of nowhere to be good, and the heat won the title? the nba can be full of surprises. but if you believe predictable pap like the stuff that sam smith writes, well i can't help you there.

    you know, the celtics are loaded with young talent too. if they ever get a clue, they could really do something down the road.
