1. Who will have the most 30 point games of any player on the team?

- Eddy Curry

2. Will any player get 40 points in a game?

- Yes

3. Will any player get 50 points in a game?

- No

4. Who will be the leading scorer (PPG) on the team?

- Eddy Curry (19 ppg)

5. Will AD get more or less minutes than Chandler?

- Less

6. Will AD get more or less minutes than Curry?

- Less

7. Will Deng get more or less minutes than Nocioni?

- Less (I think about they'll play about the same minutes though)

EDIT:

8. Will the Bulls win any of the circus trip games?

- Yes, even if only one or two. The Kings and Lakers arent as good as they used to be, which makes the whole circus trip not as difficult as it used to be. Games against Golden State, Pheonix, Utah and Denver arent unwinnable, and the Kings/Lakers are nowhere near being 1st tier contenders like in previous years.

1. Who will have the most 30 point games of any player on the team? Eddy

2. Will any player get 40 points in a game? Yes, Ben will do it once and Eddy will do it twice.

3. Will any player get 50 points in a game? No.

4. Who will be the leading scorer (PPG) on the team? Eddy w/ about 21 ppg.

5. Will AD get more or less minutes than Chandler? Far less.

6. Will AD get more or less minutes than Curry? Far less.

7. Will Deng get more or less minutes than Nocioni? He'll start out playing significantly less, but after a couple months, Deng will move ahead of Nocioni in the rotation and will finish with more minutes played.

8. Will the Bulls win any of the circus trip games? Yes, call me crazy, but I see them winning 3 of them (GState, Phoenix, Utah).

I think most are going to be pleasantly surprised with this team in many ways this season.

Great thread.

1. Three players will have 30 point games: Curry and Gordon will probably do it more than once, Kirk maybe once or twice. Chandler has a shot, but I say he doesn't do it, mainly because I'm still scared he's not going to be on the court much this year. Eddy does it the most.

2. No.

3. No.

4. Gordon will have a chance to take the most shots, but I still say Curry.

5. AD gets more minutes than Chandler when Tyson misses many games due to reoccuring back trouble :eek: .

6. Curry gets more minutes than AD. Hopefully he can stay out of foul trouble to make that happen.

7. Nocioni gets more minutes than Deng for this year but only for this year. Deng still gets about 20 minutes per game.

8. We win a grand total of one game on the circus trip, which though totally lame is still an improvement.

1. Who will have the most 30 point games of any player on the team?

Eddy. He will likely have around 10 or so games of 30 or more. After all, he is the best offensive player on the team.

2. Will any player get 40 points in a game?

I think Curry will have one game of 40+ against a team like Bucks, Dallas, Wizards.

3. Will any player get 50 points in a game?

This is hard. Not many players can do this even the good ones.

4. Who will be the leading scorer (PPG) on the team?

This is an easy one. Eddy Curry. He will average around 18-20 ppg. That's too much for Gordon to do.

5. Will AD get more or less minutes than Chandler?

This might be posible. It also means we are sinking and to be bad again.

6. Will AD get more or less minutes than Curry?

This is hard. Curry will likely get 33 or so minutes. Unless Chandler is hurt, it's hard to imagine AD averaging more minutes than Curry.

7. Will Deng get more or less minutes than Nocioni?

I think Deng will get more minutes simply because he can play a little SG.

Gordon. His scoring will be hot/cold and won't be consistent but when it rains, it pours.

2. Will any player get 40 points in a game?
Gordon, once.

3. Will any player get 50 points in a game?

I don't think so.
4. Who will be the leading scorer (PPG) on the team?
*crosses fingers*
CURRY!
20.8 ppg

5. Will AD get more or less minutes than Chandler?
Less.

6. Will AD get more or less minutes than Curry?
Less.

7. Will Deng get more or less minutes than Nocioni?
More, but only slightly.

Re: Pargo time

The obvious choice is Jannero Pargo.

2. Will any player get 40 points in a game?
If it happens, you know it's got to be Pargo.

3. Will any player get 50 points in a game?
You mean, other than Jannero Pargo?

4. Who will be the leading scorer (PPG) on the team?
With all those 50+ point games, how could it be anyone other than Pargo?

5. Will AD get more or less minutes than Chandler?

6. Will AD get more or less minutes than Curry?

7. Will Deng get more or less minutes than Nocioni?

EDIT:

8. Will the Bulls win any of the circus trip games?
I don't see what the rest of these questions have to do with Jannero Pargo at all ...

Curry will score over 30 points 30 times? Did anyone in the NBA come close to that last year? That's MVP type numbers.

Curry constantly gets into foul trouble, or gets pulled because he can't play "D" or rebound. For him to stay on the floor long enough to average 20 a game he will have to make a miraculous improvement on his defense, as well as earn the respect of the refs so he doesn't get called for touch fouls.

8. Will the Bulls win any of the circus trip games?
I already answered, but I'll add some commentary.

1. Curry is the only current Bull, other than perhaps Pippen, who's scored 30 points in a game. He's done it maybe 3 times in his career.

2. No. It's easy to make Curry disappear in a game he gets a hot start in. We've seen it over and over again before. Crawford scored 40+ last season. I don't think we have as prolific a scorer, streaky or not.

3. Crawford scored 50+ last season. Again, I don't think we have that prolific a scorer this season. BTW, Rose didn't score 50+ for us either, and I know he didn't score 40+ for us in our 30 win season, either.

4. Leading scorer is probably going to be Curry. He has a track record of scoring 15 PPG for a season, and that's about where I think he'll end up this season, +/- 3 PPG. The problem is the Bulls may end up as the league's lowest scoring team, and there's not really enough ball to go around between Nocioni, Deng, Gordon, Hinrich, and Curry. Maybe they all will score 10+ PPG, but they won't all score 15 PPG. I don't see anyone on the team as being a go-to kind of scorer, or one who's going to regularly lead the team in scoring every night.

5. I think Chandler's going to be healthy all season. I also think he didn't regress last season, he just wasn't in playing shape, nor did he fit into Skiles' system. I expect this to change, as Chandler's been working out, and Skiles gets to see him healthy and working in the system during summer camp.

6. The only way our biggest contract player gets more minutes than Curry is if Curry is a complete flop. My thinking in asking these two questions (#5, #6) is that our defense is going to be putrid with the two big fellas in the lineup at the same time - that's a historical fact.

7. I think people overestimate how good Nocioni is and underestimate how good Deng is going to be. Nocioni may end up getting 12 minutes per game by the end of the season as Deng's backup.

8. None. Forget about the quality of the teams on the west coast, even though they are still better than all but two teams in the east. We have guys like Gordon, Deng, and Nocioni we have to count on to win games, and they're going to be playing more games in a short period of time than they're used to. They're also going to be playing in "strange" gyms, as they've never played on the west teams' home courts before.

Curry will have a handful, Gordon might get one or two, and Hinrich might get one if he has a great night shooting the 3.

2. Will any player get 40 points in a game?
Doubtful. Curry has an outside chance.

3. Will any player get 50 points in a game?
Nope. Jamal did it once, but he played absolutely out of his mind that day. Hard to replicate that. Some day Curry might be able to do this, but not this year. Our guard play isn't experienced enough to feed him the ball all game and he'll need our perimeter guys to keep defenses honest by making shots. He also needs to add another move or two to his arsenal.
4. Who will be the leading scorer (PPG) on the team?
Curry, about 18ppg. Could be higher if he can rebound and play help defense enough to stay on the floor for 30-35 minutes/
5. Will AD get more or less minutes than Chandler?
fewer. I'm optimistic that Chandler will stay healthy this year.

6. Will AD get more or less minutes than Curry?
Fewer. If not, we're in real trouble.

7. Will Deng get more or less minutes than Nocioni?
More. Nocioni will be a solid stopgap starter, but Deng's all-around game and court-savvy will get him on the floor right away and he'll gradually take Nocioni's minutes away until he's close to 30mpg.


8. Will the Bulls win any of the circus trip games?
I think this is the year we pull out one or two. If Pax and Skiles are right, the new guys are a lot tougher mentally and won't go into a funk after losing a couple games. If they come out actually believing they can win every night of the trip, they can win one.
