the Bulls seem to be one of my top 5 teams to watch for this upcoming season. Great depth, great talent, great potential.

The first 15 - 20 games are going to blow - any judgement thereafter is just bound for disappointmentville

You said it all.....I'm with your opinion as well...
They are the Future and the future maybe just NOW!!!
They will be very exciting to watch next season, they have a good foundation and a good mix of youth and a few young Vets. Keep this team together, let them gell as a unit and let the Running of the Bulls begin - :eek: :D

Thats the first time since 98 i heard anybody say "The running of the bulls" it feels real good to hear that. I sure hope the Bulls start running again, cuz the past 4 years they've just been cooped up in a petting zoo. Let em out already. All great teams have a transition period after their dynasties, the lakers of the 80's, celtics and so on. I dont think its gonna be a whole decade before we become a championship quality team. We very well may be in a couple years.

The Bulls can easily start out 4-15 this season. That's a rough stretch right there.

This is a very interesting time in Chicago Bulls history right now. I do not expect a great deal of wins this season, nor do I expect to make the playoffs but this is the first time in 5 seasons we've had something to be excited about. I mean, I was excited when we drafted Brand but at the same time I knew that there wasnt any pieces of the puzzle put together. In fact, the plan of the puzzles design hadnt even been created yet. Now we have 3 players who could very well be in our starting line-up and be stars for 10 years, and maybe even longer. Jwill, Curry, and Chandler are all 19 and 20 years old. 10 years from now they will only be 30 year olds. They all have the tools to become elite players at their respected positions. Rose will be effective for at least another 4 or 5 seasons. These next 2 years I expect he'll be the man but after that he may take on a different role. Fizer is a 6th man type of player. Hassel could be a solid starter in the future. We dont necessarily need marquee names from the draft anymore, we just need to set a structure for the team and pick players who will fill that. If we are in the lottery this year I think we should get a back up C or a shooting guard. If Crawford works out well have a line up like this for about 5 or so years.

PG Williams, Crawford
SG Hassel, (2003 lottery pick?)
sf Rose, Marshall
PF Chandler, Fizer
C Curry, (2003 draft pick?)

this is going to be a scary team. Next year I think they'll make the playoffs and possibly be a second round team then after that the skys the limit.
