Well, I had my opportunity to ask Krause a question while he signed my ball (and if you look at that old thread you will notice that my question was given to me by a fellow poster), and I don't think I want to hassle him again with questions, so now I'm moving to my next target. Bill Cartwright. I'll ask him to sign the same ball, and while he does (assuming he does) I'll ask a question based on your questions... I might be able to get more than one in this time too!!

So here's what I'd like to ask now... I'd like to ask him to sign his name with a written prediction of the Bulls success. Be that a number of wins next season, or how many years it will take to make it to the finals. Something of that nature would be nice - or do you think saying something like that might Jinx them. I wonder if Cartwright is superstitious.

Fire away guys...

I wouldn't ask that. Guys don't like to be put on the spot like that. Ask one of the players if you want a response to that question. They will gladly tell you I'm sure.

If you want a guess at the Bulls success next year... Say something like "Do we have any chance at making the playoffs?" He'll probably give you a 2 sentence answer. Hopefully more than just "yeah". If you want to get more specific you can say something like "is 30+ win season a success or is it really playoffs or bust?"

How about a Hassell question..... "Trenton plays such good defense. Does he still have a shot a starting?"

Damn! I like your second question. That's a damn fine one, but I think for reason's you mentioned above he wouldn't want to answer that one either. Why start a Shooting guard controversy? He's already got a point guard controversy. I think BC is one heck of a coach, though I've only seem a couple of games he's coached. Maybe I'll ask him what his greatest weakness as a coach is (after complementing him profusely ofcourse.) :)

:) Yeah I guess I'd just be stirring up trouble. I guess I'm still a holdout in the defense wins philosophy. We lost our defensive leader in Artest. We need someone to replace him at the SG spot. Too bad Hassell isn't 6'7" like Artest. I bet if he was he'd be the starter easy. I'd love to see him get a shot at least though - I know his talent level isn't up there with the others but a little hustle/heart mixed in with some talent can win you alot more games than just talent alone sometimes.

The Artest question is good. I'd ask one of 3 questions:

Does he think a BIG trade is going to happen this year? (I'm not sure he'd answer).

Is Erob's toe 100% healthy?

How much longer do we have to put up with Dali? (it could probably be worded a little bit better, though).

I don't necessarily believe JK, but I suppose BC would repeat the company line.

Ask him if he's heard whether or not Kraus and Floyd are still planning their annual fishing trip together this year.

Oh, and if you get a chance to ask a second question, ask him if he thinks Jalen will be OK with playing primarily SF.

SO, R we to understand that there is no reason why EROB should not be a starting SF and Rose at Guard?? At that rate, Jay Williams would be filling in at PG and SG off the bench, right? EROB should NOT be sitting the bench making $5mil a year, no? IF, he is healthy that is.:no:

Bama, All I have heard is that E-Rob is healthy. I expect him to be the starting sf next season unless we add Harpring or Miller and they beat him out.

SUS, glad that gave you a laugh!

Ask Bill who his most competitive practice player is - who most hates to lose a single scrimmage?

What head-to-head matchup is most fiercely contested in practice?

ooo, that's a good one, agent911. good work! i'd imagine it to be jay and chandler and hassell as the most competitive.

seeing jay and JC go at it would be sweet, as would curry vs chandler.

I'm thinking Baxter v. Fizer will be fun. If anyone can light a fire in Marcus, I think it will be Lonny banging away at him.

Very good insight Agent911. Just out of curiosity, what does your name mean?

Some players if they get beat while on defense, simply try to get back at you when they're on offensive, which doesn't necessarily mean that they increase there intensity on defense - which is what they should be doing. Fizer has a tendancy to do that, which would make this match-up less exciting IMO.
