GARPAX is so bad, who thought Jabari Parker would be a good idea? Just plays no defense whatsoever.

I can't believe they thought this team would compete for anything, it's clearly another tanking year.

Too bad ESPN got their claws in Amin first, but hopefully he'll be happy doing the fill-in stuff for Funk when available. He's just great at everything.

Amin is doing 1 more of the next 4 Funk-less games

Friday, the Bulls announced that Adam Amin, Andy Demetra and Kyle Draper will fill in for Funk for the first five of those games.

Amin, a play-by-play commentator for ESPN, will games on Oct. 22 against the Mavericks and Nov. 14 against the Celtics. He grew up in Addison, resides in Chicago and also does play-by-play for Bears preseason games.

Demetra is from Oak Brook and currently is the play-by-play broadcaster for Georgia Tech basketball and football. He will call games on Oct. 26 against the Hornets and Oct. 27 against the Hawks. He has previous play-by-play experience with the SEC Network, Pac-12 Network and Fox Sports South.

Draper will call the Bulls' Nov. 7 game against the Pelicans. He is the Celtics' pregame and postgame host for NBC Sports Boston and an occasional play-by-play annoucer and sideline reporter for the Celtics.

The Bulls said they will continue providing updates on substitute broadcasters as they are scheduled.

I hate GarPax with a passion, but this team was supposed to and expected to suck. They knew this too. The Jabari move was basically just taking a flyer on him, over trying to find a team to take a bad contract from.

The Cubs medical staff wishes they were as incompetent as the Bulls medical staff historically. Dunn should be lucky they didn’t give him a spinal tap in the locker room

Not trying to defend the Bulls medical staff, but it's very possible to continue playing with a strained MCL/ACL and not notice it or have it affect you. Some players continue playing with a torn MCL/ACL if the inflammation and pain isn't too bad.

It sucks that he's out now because Cam Payne is horsefeathering terrible, but I want the Bulls to lose. We need to emulate "The Process" and tank -- at least for one more year.

Yeah, it sucks that it happened to a supposed 'core' player as opposed to someone less important to the future, but the Bulls losing another year is probably for the best. Signing Parker might have been a nice stealth tanking move in that regard even if it wasn't intended that way.

More GarPax incompetence

https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2018/10/bul ... -asik.html

Veteran center Omer Asik, acquired in last season’s Nikola Mirotic with the Pelicans as a salary-matching piece, was unlikely to play at all this season for the Bulls. Still, Chicago’s decision to release him over the weekend in order to sign Shaquille Harrison was “stunning” to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link), who referred to Asik’s contract one of the best trade pieces in the league.

Of course, Asik didn’t have trade value in the way that star players have trade value, but his contract was an intriguing potential trade chip for a couple reasons: It was signed under the league’s previous Collective Bargaining Agreement, and he was owed a partial guarantee of just $3MM on his $11.98MM salary for 2019/20.

Under the league’s new CBA, a team trading a player with an $11.98MM salary with a $3MM partial guarantee would only get to count that contract for $3MM for salary-matching purposes, limiting its appeal in a potential deal. However, if that same contract was signed under the old CBA – like Asik’s – it counts for its full $11.98MM for salary-matching purposes. That would have made it appealing to teams looking to cut costs during the summer of 2019.

For instance, let’s say that the Knicks wanted to make a run at Kevin Durant in the summer of 2019 and needed to move as much salary as possible to clear a maximum-salary slot. Cap rules would have allowed Chicago and New York to swap Courtney Lee (who has a $12.76MM salary for 2019/20) straight up for Asik. The Knicks then could’ve waived Asik, stretching his $3MM partial guarantee across three years and leaving just $1MM on their cap.

The Bulls might not have wanted Lee, and more parts may have been required to make such a deal acceptable for both sides, but that’s just one example of how Asik’s modest partial guarantee – and his old contract – provided some value.

It's stuff like that...... That's why GarPax needs to be fired. Granted, there's a ton of teams that are set up to have max money available anyway. This EXACT screwup likely doesn't wind up mattering.

But, they do so many of these "small" things wrong, that collectively it kills us.

I actually think they draft pretty well, with their 1st pick in a draft. But, outside of that, there's literally nothing they do well.

The Asik thing is probably overblown. The Bulls still have plenty of ways to be a salary dumping ground at the deadline or in the summer if that's what they need to do. Although I don't think the Bulls really want to be a salary dumping ground either, at least based on the current market for that sort of thing.

That's the sole reason I was OK with using the money on Jabari and not taking on the same salary for a late 20's pick in next year's draft or even later. Figures that market dried up as soon as we were ready to take advantage of it lol.

I don't totally mind the Bulls just throwing horsefeathers up and seeing what sticks. Tanking for the lotto is a lot less attractive now. The key would be is flipping whatever risks or reclamation projects actually pan out for future draft capital (of the unprotected variety ideally).
