Yo when read that thing about Beal I didn't realize it said "rest of his career". I want no part of that. We should let him go in the offseason. Let someone else take a chance on him. I've seen this movie before with Agent 0 paying broken down players.

Meh, they completely missed a foul call on Lebron's dunk in regulation that would have gave the cavs the win.

 

Calls are made, calls are missed

He's had stress reactions in his right fibula literally every year of his career because he can't handle big mins. mean.gif

Very disappointing. And it's not like he rushes back from these issues either.

He hurt it at the end of his rookie year & didn't play for three months. And has sat out for weeks whenever they came up in the following years. He just can't handle the workload.

Bradley beal for 6th man ? 

 

No more starting position for him. 

post #40843 of 93193
it's wild too because with Beal's genes you'd think he'd be a savge. But he's frail. His brothers are all big af and played football. But homies joints cannot take the stress.

He's still effective but fragile. 6th man may be the best spot for him not only for us but any team.

We'll take him in the Bulls as a 6th man. 

Might as well.

Fred Hoiberg's first year with the Chicago Bulls was always going to be complicated. Whereas most new head coaches are brought in to fix floundering teams, Hoiberg was asked to take over for an admired head coach in Tom Thibodeau, who led the Bulls to five straight playoff berths.

But Bulls management pried the 43-year-old Hoiberg away from Iowa State because they thought he could add some spice to their often-stagnant offense. As part of that effort, Hoiberg has moved Joakim Noah out of the starting lineup.




Noah has played good solider thus far, but according to a report from Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, the veteran big man is far from pleased with his current role.


A source said on Tuesday morning that Noah remains unhappy with his current standing in the organization, and "still hasn't moved past losing his starting job'' late in training camp. The source went onto say that Noah "hasn't been a distraction by any means, but isn't the biggest [coach Fred] Hoiberg fan these days.''

Not only is Noah now coming off the bench, but he's also playing just 22 minutes per game, his lowest total since his rookie year. His overall output has dropped -- he's hitting just 38 percent of his shots and averaging just 4.3 points to go along with 8.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists -- but the move has failed to boost Chicago's offense, which is no doubt frustrating him. The Bulls are scoring just 101 points per 100 possessions this year, the 10th-worst mark in the league. Last year, with Noah playing in tandem with Pau Gasol up front, they scored 104.7.

Of course, there's still logic to Hoiberg's decision to shift Noah to the bench. Noah is 30 with a lot of mileage on his tires and has already missed nine games this year due to a shoulder injury. (The Bulls went 7-2 in those games, which adds to Hoiberg's case). Also, his jump shot is completely broken and he still has trouble finishing near the rim. The Bulls are 4.1 points per 100 possessions better offensively when Noah sits, per NBA.com, and about even defensively.




But Noah, a two-time All Star and 2014 Defensive Player of the Year who's spent his entire career in Chicago and played a key role in the team's rise, is a competitor. It's understandable and not the least bit surprising that he believes the Bulls are better off with him on the floor.


This is not the first time that this has been brought up this season, with Noah feeling like he would be better served as a starter or at least on the court more often in crunch-time.

Privately, the Bulls have hoped that winning games would cure a lot of Noah's woes, but that hasn't necessarily been the case. It also didn't help that the Bulls went 7-2 without Noah during a recent shoulder injury, and that he's been the subject of trade talk.

The Bulls aren't really winning games, at least at the level they hoped. The Bulls are on a three-game losing streak and have repeatedly been unable to separate themselves from the rest of the crowded East pack. Chicago is in fourth place in the East at 22-15, but are just three-and-a-half games ahead of the ninth-seeded New York Knicks and Boston Celtics.

That's probably why Noah's name has slowly been popping up in trade rumors. The Bulls may think they're better off dealing him for a wing player, as Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski recently suggested. He'll also be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the Bulls may prefer to recoup an asset as opposed to just letting him walk for nothing next summer.

Whatever the reason, the Bulls are in for an awkward four months. The Bulls were able to overcome the last internal strife involving one of their key players and Hoiberg, but adding a popular player like Noah to that list is only going to make Hoiberg's already difficult job even more complex.

The Lakers really are going to win too many games and not keep their pick.

 

They really aren't as bad as some of the other cellar dwellers in the league. Idk. I haven't thought about it much but I genuinely think they won't keep their pick for that reason.
