I read an article recently on ESPN somewhere where the writer said that, without many people noticing it, the Cavaliers are becoming the new Chicago Bulls and the Bulls are becoming the new Cleveland Cavaliers.

Do you feel that's right? Where do you see the future of the Bulls franchise heading? Will they ever be a contending team without Michael?

Yep. That's what I'm seeing this year. Cleveland is really on the up and up. They have confidence every game they go out. They don't have problems with their best players underachieving. They go out every night and play like winners. Win or not. And this second half of the season it's going to be more win than not.

That's a team that has a clear plan and a clear vision for the future. They already have a team identity.

While we are disentegrating, they are forming like voltron.

:laugh:

Yes, they really are forming an identity... toughness, defense, and unselfishness are becoming the focus. They're not equipped to be a serious contender yet, but they're establishing the right attitude in Cleveland, so that they can bring in more pieces later and have a tone set.

Do you envision a Bulls playoff team a few years down the road featuring Curry, Chandler, and Crawford? Or do you think the Bulls will have to rework everything to become successful? Will they ever get over losing Michael?

Well judging from most of the people here, Crawford and Curry won't be around much longer.

The Bulls have failed several rebuilding projects already. There is no reason to think this one will succeed. You can't turn around a losing culture like this without getting a truly special guy...and I'm not talking about Kirk Hinrich.

For a myriad of reasons no one has panned out yet. And they don't have the patience to develop players properly. We got Crawford, Curry and Chandler as projects to develop...and so far you can argue that there's been 2 failures and a Marcus Camby.

The Bulls are that guy who keeps throwing away the money he needs to feed his family for lottery tickets, saying this next one will be the winning ticket...and it never is.
