James hurt his elbow in the 1st Q of Game 4 and his shooting seemed off tonight because of it. He still almost had a freaking triple double (19, 10, 9), but that’s what makes guys like him special and guys like me not.
Another first round exit, combined with the tension between the head coach and the front office, should put an end to the Vinny Del Negro era within hours. However, in my opinion, by not getting a real head coach before now, it will be tough to lure the elite free agents to an unstable situation despite the salary cap dough available. Chris Bosh? Meh. He’s not getting anyone out of the first round.
Isn’t, ahem, Phil Jackson’s contact up in a couple of months? A triumphant return of the Zen Master may be the only thing to save Derrick Rose’s fledgling career in Chicago. Even great players in the NBA change teams pretty often and unless John Paxson and Gar Forman can compliment Rose with another superstar this offseason, he will not finish his career as a Chicago Bull.
