    Cavs-Bulls deal at least piques interest on ChicagoSports.com

    What would the Cavs do with Varjeo AND Ben? Too many energy guys with big hair for one team.

    Looks like as long as they can ship Hughes out of there, they're ready to experiment. :pound:

    Not sure I'd like to see that.

    Hinrich could really help the Cavs, taking pressure off LBJ to bring the ball up, and spotting up for loads of open threes. Question would be if he is that much of an upgrade over an up and coming Boobie.

    Ben at the 4 spot roaming all over the place while Z held down the middle could also be pretty interesting. On the other end, toss the ball to Z down low and if the double comes, drop it off to Ben for a dunk. And Ben would be POed enough at being traded to get seriously fired up.

    They would be worse.

    Hinrich and Ben are horrible this year.

    Gooden is a pretty solid contributor for them right now. 13 pts/9rebs per game.

    Bulls need a new GM. They would be a terrible deal for them. Great for Cleveland.

    Bulls needed a new GM for a while.

    i'm likin Sam Smith comments and answers to the Bulls woes much more than Chris mccoskys nonsense. Especially the comment about Kevin McHale working for two teams, Minnesota and Boston...classic. When Mchale gets fired, he will be working with Garnett and Ainge again...in Boston.:)

    Watching the Blazers and Bulls tonight, Ben's defense has really fallen. Of course, he has no offense, whatsoever. Doug Collins just pointed out what a liability he is on offense because they don't even guard Ben. Joe D made a great move by not breaking the bank signing the guy.

    I am watching this game also, and this is certainly not the Big Ben we witnessed in a Piston uni. I have come to the conclusion it`s because of the talent around him. Let`s face it, there is a serious drop off with the current Bulls roster and the Piston team Ben left.

    Asking Ben to be the same as a Bull might be impossible.

    I was checking Rodman's offensive numbers to see how they compared to Big Ben's

    Rodman had an amazing offensive statistic

    In his 14 years in the league his points per 40 minutes fell from the preceding year 9 times out of 13 possibilites and rose only twice!!!

    In his rookie year he averaged 17.3 points per 40 minutes and in his last full season he averaged only 5.3 points per 40 minutes

    Dennis Rodman Statistics - Basketball-Reference.com

    :hoops:

    Man, Roy is tough. It's no surprise they named that Rookie Of the Year award after him last season.

    What a weapon Ben Gordon would be on a team that had a player that demanded a double team in the post...............Wow!

    Ben keeps leaving Aldridge wide open. He should have learned his lesson 4 or 5 jump shots ago...

    Joe Smith with 30 points tonight. That surpasses the total that he scored in one full season with the Pistons....

    double OT!!! Ben Gordon and Joe Smith Smith 30 points!! each... His career high was 38 in 1997, but I doubt that he has topped 30 since the new millenium:)
