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

https://twitter.com/highkin/status/1009953283413196800 I don't agree with the comp, but it sucks that there might be some truth to this... Carlos Boozer was a very good player, especially at his peak with Utah. I'd be more than happy if that were his outcome. That said, it's kind of a weird comp IM...

I think this pick is boring as hell but I'm also fairly confident he'll be a solid player.

Yeah, the whole acceleration of perceived time as each moment becomes smaller in proportion to your life is a bitch and definitely not something I was warned about.

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

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 ...

Chatwood is almost certainly the other. And they still have one of the most talented rosters in the game and they still have the money to drop a bunch of cash on Harper's doorstep. a few posters there were so relieved when they signed darvish, convinced that it meant there was no way they could go ...

Someone explain why this dude is all hung up on PER. That, WS or BPM (and VORP way behind, I guess) all seem like ways to try and cumulatively judge one player's overall value vs. another, and LeBron tops Jordan in all of those except for PER, where Jordan JUST edges him out.

Re: 2017-2018 NBA Season

I have no problem saying that, adjusting for era, jordan was the greatest player of my lifetime. LeBron is better but plays in an era where the competition is FAR superior. This very well could be true, but a washed up Jordan did go for 20/6/4 against the guys that were LeBron's contemporaries. The...

Meh. It's the All Star team, not the All-VORP team. Stars drive in runs and hit dongs.
