2007-10-02 13:33:14.0 naz_21: Kwame just doesn't have a feel for the game
2007-10-02 13:33:36.0 CuevaGold: Kobe said in an interview that Dr. Buss was "hands off" regarding b-ball decisions for the last two years and that now he was going to be "back in the mix". Does this mean that Dr. Buss has finally realized that Jimmy the horse trainer has no clue about basketball?
2007-10-02 13:33:39.0 Brian Kamenetzky: theishy- Someone between Farmar and Crittendon is going to get minutes, for sure. Initially, it'll likely be Farmar, but I don't think the gap is very big. Wouldn't surprise me to see that fluctuate a lot this year, in terms of PT with the backup PGs. In terms of a wild card, Vlad Rad is certainly one. They got literally nothing from him last year, and thus any contribution is a bonus. Obviously Bynum. And to some extent Fish, who has leadership bonafides, but it's reasonable to qeustion how good he'll be on the floor.
2007-10-02 13:34:06.0 Brian Kamenetzky: Not to say he'll be bad, but I think a lot of people wonder the level he still has.
2007-10-02 13:34:22.0 naz_21: Phil prefers Critten type guards
2007-10-02 13:34:32.0 Brian Kamenetzky: Currently, I have him as a lower end starter at PG. But it was still a good, and needed pckup.
2007-10-02 13:34:45.0 Brian Kamenetzky: naz- if Crittendon can play some D, he'll find his way onto the floor.
2007-10-02 13:34:52.0 Andrew Kamenetzky: Cueva... Either that or Dr. Buss is secretly jealous of how well his son has done, so he wants to reassert his presence before his legacy shrinks. But that feels like a stretch.
2007-10-02 13:34:59.0 doug: How big an effect do you think the Bulls' willingness to allow Ben Wallace to wear a headband will have on the Eastern Conference Standings this year? I think more than Kobe or KG, this is the final piece of the puzzle for them. Title #7 is on the way.
2007-10-02 13:35:31.0 naz_21: yes he will......but thinking ahead a i believe farmar should be moved once his stock goes up a little
2007-10-02 13:35:51.0 naz_21: hes undersized
2007-10-02 13:35:55.0 naz_21: his shot is questionable
2007-10-02 13:36:02.0 naz_21: *Questionable
2007-10-02 13:36:30.0 Andrew Kamenetzky: Doug... I think if ben Wallace wants to wear a headband, let the guy wear a headband. Don't the Bulls have more important things to worry about than what players strap on their melons? It was a dumb rule to begin with.
2007-10-02 13:36:38.0 naz_21: i was wrong when i had the mike bibby comparisons with farmar
2007-10-02 13:36:44.0 LArez: Nothing has really changed in the Laker's roster, and from everything i read they seem to be in their usual "we'll give our best shot" mentality....but those are the opening words to every losing season. Do you think this season is over before it even gets started?
2007-10-02 13:36:46.0 Brian Kamenetzky: Sure. I think many on the blog have a higher opinion of Farmar than opposing GMs. Not that it's thought that he sucks, but the notion that he's going to become an elite NBA PG is a stretch.
2007-10-02 13:37:10.0 naz_21: Farmar isn't fast enuff or have a convincing enuff of a shot
