Why aren't we looking @ Jimmy Butler? Wesley Mathews?

Demare Carrol is a 3 and thats it, not a "big" 2... I'm not seeing Phils vision at all.

And Greg Monroe? A front court with him Porzingus and Melo would be eaten alive... All of Phils moves have been contradicting thus far. We honestly had the worst backcourt in the league last year, especially on defense, then he claims that were set at "lead gaurd". He should be hell bent on gettin Robin Lopez or Deandre Jordan. Why draft Porzingus then spend max money on someone who plays the same position? (Lamarcus or Monroe)

I like the interest in West as far as leadership and bringing accountability/winning attitude bench role but west just opted out of 12 milli, how much does Phil plan to spend on old news?

@fwhite Because the Bulls are going to match Jimmy Butler and Wes Matthews has a blown Achilles which is not a kind injury. Very few players return from it at the same level of success.


Also, Phil hasn't made ANY FA moves yet so I can't see how they are contradictory unless you believe Phil Jackson is running around the Internets telling everyone of his plans just to see how people like you will support them.

Butler wants to go to LA. Bulls won't let him go but Rose doesn't like anyone taking away from his stats.

Who knows what Phil is telling whoever, im going off what's reported Just like you saying that the Bulls are gonna, pretty sure Pax didn't tell u that himself. All of us go off what is widely reported, and what has been widely reported in the past regarding Phils moves and current moves (the draft) yes they have been contradicting. He didn't go BPA (that can step in and start) which he said he would and didn't. He said he's looking for defensive help upfront, Monroe and Porzingus are the polar opposite of what he's claimed to be valuing.

People in his inner circle told him to say positive stuff. So when he starts pushing for a trade he will not look like the bad guy

Knowing our luck, one of them will probably get injured during the workout

He didn't need to go against Isola's article. SAS was the one that gave this more attention. Melo wouldn't dare go at SAS because he knows SAS has the biggest platform to challenge him and Melo doesn't want that for PR reasons. 


If all of this was BS, he should have called out SAS directly. But we know why he didn't do it.

@dogmanx23 national sport writers have more leverage then players. They have a fraternity with other sport writers across the nation. They have to power to make someone look like a cancer or look like God himself. Their words hold more weight then the horses mouth. athletes are not believable. writers who make predictions can be 90% wrong but that 10% right makes up for all of it. Remember these are the same sources that said Melo wanted THJ gone last yr after an argument. Melo going after Smith would be foolish for his public image which has taken a beating every time Smith opens his mouth. Giving Smith more reason to hate would get him bigger ratings for his show.
