Things look great for the Bulls!!! They have two lottery picked rookies with alot of potential, one of the premiere shooting guards in the league, and the #2 pick in this years draft!!!

Things look kind of scary for the Bulls, they have alot of young talent, but will it be wasted with no mentor? What if their talented youth go nowhere and end up as immature as Randy Moss in Minnesota?

Things have more uncertanty for the Bulls than any other team right now. I would go somewhere in between those first two statements. I think they have alot of potential to be great again, but I think if they had a player like Stockton, or Malone, or Jordan, or even a player like Camby, just SOMEONE that HAS been a great, to add to their team. Once they do that, the sky is the limit for the Bulls.:)

ahem... Jalen Rose is a Point Forward, not a Shooting guard, and he will be the mentor and star player which you speak of. (although he may be moved to SG if he is played along side ERob, that doesn't change the fact that he's a SF)

Randy Moss had character issues before being drafted, and obviously they are still an issue. Neither Chandler nor Curry fit such a characterization. Hassell, and JC are also good people.

Bill Cartwright is also a no nonsense type of coach. He'll keep his solders in line, and you can count of that. He did an admirable job managing the disruptive Oakley at the end of the season. I don't see our youth going bad under his careful watch.

no, you see, Jalen Rose is really a SG, but becuase the bulls dont have a good PG right now, they moved him there. There is no such thing as a point forward.

I agree with most of the other things, but you can never eliminate the possibility that rookies will go astray with no one to mentor them.

Point Forward is a term coined for players who are natural 3's but display the playmaking ability more often seen in Point Guards. Rose is often refered to as a Point Forward, I'm not just making stuff up. (can someone please back me up on this?)

Rose is, and has always been a SF. If he plays SG he's out of his natural position, and he's never been played by Cartwright as a Point Guard. Not that I can remember at least.

Your right SUS. Rose is a point small forward. Clear and simple. Sting he can play SG but in reality he is a sf. He played that in Indiana and he will play both here but mainly sf and a little bit pg but not that much.
