The Deal: 4 years, 38 million dollars
This is a great deal for both parties as the Bulls simply could not let their best bench player and one of their best defenders get away. He is also very solid on offense, explosive to the rim and has a very smooth jump. Once the Bulls amnesty Boozer, Gibson will be the starter, but for now he gives the Bulls everything they ask of him off the bench, being their sixth man. Nine million a year for a great two-way player is more than reasonable.
They simply could not let him get away, his energy, hustle, and defense is very important to the team. There have been countless times over the last two years, when the Bulls would look sluggish and the very presence of Gibson and his energy sparked the Bulls. There is a reason why last year’s “bench mob” was successful and that was because of the spark that Gibson brought to that unit.
The fact that he is almost always in the game, with a close score, late in the fourth quarter says a lot about how the Bu...

KNOW YOUR ROLE
Rasheed Wallace knows his best days are long behind him, but he's more than comfortable with his bench role on the Knickerbockers.
Let this be a note to all NBA fans, it's not the greatest idea to heckle a player not having a good game unless you want them to go on a scoring spree.During Friday's Cavs/Bulls affair, a Cavaliers fan started heckling Bulls guard Richard Hamilton in the third quarter and as you may figure, Richard heard him and took issue with it:"In the third quarter, I decided to...

CLEVELAND - Don't shed any tears for the Chicago Bulls. Sure, they are missing their best player, point guard Derrick Rose, who is recovering from a torn ACL. But this is still a formidable opponent.

It was an ugly, ugly game.
Well, that sure was discouraging.
I wasn’t expecting much from the Cavs on Friday night. While I enjoyed the Cavs opening night win against the Wizards, the Bulls are an entirely different basketball beast. The Bulls have veteran players who know what they’re doing on both ends of the floor. Chicago is patient on offense and they move the ball to...

That’s the rumor.
Now of course, any deal would be at the vet min but Rich wouldn’t mind after being let go by the Orlando Magic.
The Bulls are actual contenders (sorta) and any job is better than no job, right?
