Re: RE: Re: Bears 2018 Offseason: Matt Nagy Hired as Head Coach

Sounds like Anthony Miller is impressing early in camp So is Kevin Tolliver. He could be nice insurance if our CBs can't stay healthy... which is probable Be really nice if Toliver could become something. One of my biggest issues with the last 2 offseasons is that Pace hasn't brought in any young C...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I wanted Parker at the beginning of the offseason. I didn't realize he was more of a 4 than a 3 though, as I haven't seen him play recently like most of the world. But he's still young and not far removed from being a 20ppg scorer, a freshman all American at Duke, and an elite HS recruit. And in eve...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

With this contract, LaVine will NOT be in the top 40 highest paid players, which seems fair. He's getting paid about the same as George Hill which sounds like a steal. But he's also getting about the same as Jimmy Butler, which makes Andy's statement as accurate as they come.

This might be anti-big-man bias, but I'm struggling to see a best case scenario for Bamba where he's better than the 3rd best player on a championship caliber team. Like Spongeworthy, when you get the chance to draft this high I think you need to spend it on a guy who could be Option A or B on a ti...

I really want Memphis' pick Who do you want. I by no means follow the draft as closely these days, but had kind of resigned myself to one of Bamba, MPJ, or Young being there at 7 and each offering a similar boom/bust profile (granted all in uniquely different ways). It seems possible a trade up to ...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

I've decided I like just 7 guys for the Bulls first pick in this draft and if we get 1 of the 7 I'll be happy. Obviously some of these like Ayton won't happen. Roughly in order: Ayton, Doncic, Bagley, Porter, Bamba, Young, Jackson I see mock drafts having the Bulls taking Wendell Carter, Kevin Knox...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Trading down would suck. If anything, they need to move up. If we found our way into 4, I'd take Bamba, or Bagley, if he's still there. At 7, you have a chance at getting an elite guy, but the odds lower obviously..... My final 7 is Ayton, Bagley, Doncic, Bamba, then MPJ, JJJ, and Carter- with the ...

Any 20-40 sleepers you guys like? Hate the guy's guts, but I actually think Grayson Allen could be a decent pick at 22. He's a guy that should be able to crack a rotation as a rookie, and can shoot the ball or do some slashing. May be a similar player to what the Bulls were hoping McDermott would b...

Any chance the Bulls package both picks and get into the top 4? Would that even matter? I really like the idea of Porter. Obviously, his back has to check out. Usually 19 year olds with back problems don't end well, but I like his fit for the Bulls moreso than any other player that's going to go out...

Allen Robinson had one season three years ago where he led the league in receptions and was 6th in receiving yards. He wasn't particularly close to the top 10 in either his last full season.

I hate giving out A's when you didn't add any unquestionably elite, impact talent. I'd call it a B+, he filled a lot of holes and he did it admirably. But that's just semantics about how letter grades translate. I guess Robinson isn't unquestioned, but he's as close as anyone could reasonably expec...
