Since Krause was in the stands at the Dallas summer league game, I'm guessing that he'll be at all of the games. I"m going to try to sit next to him and pop a question or two towards the end of the games and see if I can get a response.

What should I ask? (please no Krispy Cream questions:laugh: )

why dont you ask him why he didn't try to get better value than Roy Rogers in the Pippen deal?

Or why he was stupid enough to introduce Floyd as the head coach before Jackson made his final decision?

Or why he didn't offer MJ part ownership of the Bulls?

Please try to be a bit more constructive. I'm not likely to get an answer if I ask those types of questions, which simply translate into heckling. Aren't you at all pleased with the team he has assembled? I'm a big Krause support just so you know, so much so infact, I'm going to try to get him to sign a bulls basketball for me.

In retrospect the Floyd hiring was a bad one. But his first two years here, he got props from his players and from other coaches, he simply had no talent on his team. Last season everything fell apart and I was happy to see him go. The way I look at it, the Floyd hiring protected BillC's mental health in that he didn't have to endure all that losing as a head coach, not to mention that BillC wasn't ready to coach the Bulls at the time of Floyd's hire. This in and of itself made the Floyd hire worth while. In effect he kept the seat warm for BillC.

As for your last question, offering part ownership would be Reinsdorf's call not Krause's. And even then, Reinsdorf would need to get approval by the owners of the Bulls.

Floyd was the "rebound guy"...

No matter who coached after PJ, he was going to be hated and run out of town. That was Floyd's function, and he served it. The fact that he did so well at being hated is another matter. In a way, we can thank Floyd for a lot of the talent we've assembled. If he'd have been a better coach...... ;)

You won't get an answer, SettinUp!, but it would be nice to find out about potential trades involving Fizer this season. I'm guessing he plans to go into the season with Fizer on the roster, but as Baxter continues to show him up on the defensive end, Fizers' "me first" career with the Bulls will be over.

If you really want an answer about Fizer you will have to be creative. To find out the likelyhood of a Fizer trade etc you should ask about Baxter.

"Baxter has looked really good so far. Will he have much of a role next year or just be an IR guy? If he says anything more positive than "Baxter's a real nice player and I'm sure he'll get some minutes" then Fizer might be traded. I think thats about as good as it will get.

I'm not sure JK will be that open to talking to you, but if there was ever a time to do it it would be this summer. Everyone keeps saying how he's beaming with pride.

****I'd like to know****

"Is Rose going to play a lot more SG this year? And is that why you might be looking to add another SF?" Not really sure if he'll give you a straight answer on the follow up question though. But I think he would answer the first one honestly.

The Pippen deal was driven by Pippen and the salary cap. Krause wanted as little as possible back, and it made total sense under the CBA in place at that time.

History Lesson: Krause hires Jackson as an assistant, promotes him to head coach and PJ eventually asks for Krause's job. Kudos to Krause for pursuing AND retaining Floyd. I'd do exactly the same if some punk I hired tried to take my job.

MJ WAS offered an ownership interest, but he wanted Krause out of the picture, which was something that Reinsdorf refused to do.

As long as the history lessons are being doled out, can you tell me where such knowledge was acquired in the first place. Where was it/ is it documented that PJ asked for Krause's job?

My History Lesson for you: Reisdorf viewed Jordan's biggest contribution after his career as a good-will ambassitor (sp). Jordan thought he could contribute just a little more than that. So did at least a few NBA owners (Charlotte & Wash). I think that he has done a nice job for the Wiz. While it would have been tough to keep Krause and add Jordan given their bad blood, it's too bad Reisdorf that underestimated what Jordan could do and did not create a real role for him in the organization.

Why is it too bad? We have managed just fine without him....

Ask him why Fizer is working on his 3 point shot.

Dear Krause;

I promise to stop thinking of trade ideas involving Fizer IF he stops trying to be a 3 and focuses on playing 15 feet and in at the 4 spot ONLY!

Cordially;

First, let's just ignore the miserable teams that Bulls fans have had to watch over the last 4 years.

And, I will not dwell on the fact that our last championship team was not able to defend the title.

The Bottom Line: Anyone that I would consider to be a true Bulls and Chicago sports fan that followed our *6*championship teams has to hate seeing Jordan, the greatest player of all time, lacing it up and managing another team.

It sure seems to make most people pretty hot whether they blame the 2 Jerrys or Phil or MJ or something else.

The key is to butter his nuts up .

Tell him we love him and the side he has assembled and that he is doing a heck of a job

Then tell him his namesake , FJ, wants to know if he foresees Chandler and Curry sharing the 5 spot this season , based on:

1. The necessity to play Fizer and get his value up
2. The intriguing Lonny Bax
3. The ability to get a veteran more easily with capability of filling at the "4" than the "5"

Much obliged if you can can get an answer

Thanks

Fatticus Jerricus Esquire ( FJ )

This was about Reinsdorf offering Jordan a managerial position. Not about who's fault it was that the dynasty broke up. If Jordan was the GM instead of Krause, would we have had any more success? Doubtful. Krause has assembled nice young talent. No point in dwelling on the past.

This post is directed to all moderators only. this type of attacking should not be allowed. It is not important how intelligent it might seem to someone else or how much it entertains someone....freedom of speech without fear of sarcasm, namecalling or ridicule is all I would expect for myself and others. thank you. all the arguing, which in this case was initiated by realfan, makes this board resemble realgm in my mind. all questions by all the posters on this thread I found entertaining and/or amusing with the exception of realfan. GO BULLS!!!

See what? I don't see any ridiculing or name-calling in anything that RealFan said in the above post. Did you delete something that I am missing?
