The Bulls have 99 problems and the Heat is just one.

Derrick Rose’s Chicago Bulls have been eliminated from the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals at the hands of the Wade/LeBron-Bosh Miami Heat, 4-1. Chi-Town is fighting through some pain right now, but there shouldn’t be any. At the beginning of the season, there were not many people on the Bulls’ bandwagon. The hype grew as the wins piled up. The bandwagon grew yet many were not convinced. Rose won MVP and that’s when all hell broke loose. Tom Thibodeau received Coach of the Year. Beating Indiana and Atlanta were good. However, facing Miami caused the bandwagon to break. People keep saying that getting an upgrade at the shooting guard position over Keith Bogans is all that is needed to get the Bulls over the top to win it all.

Rumor: Bogans in, Fernandez and McGrady out with Chicago Bulls?

The Bulls have reached agreement with Keith Bogans on a two-year contract. The second season will be partially guaranteed.


HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Adding Keith Bogans doesn’t mean the Chicago Bulls won’t get Rudy Fernandez or Tracy McGrady.

It does mean the club wants role players, not scorers. Translation: lockdown defenders, like Bogans, and shooters, like disgruntled Portland Trail Blazer Rudy Fernandez, get preference over Tracy McGrady.

Bogans can slow opponents’ top perimeter player, while Fernandez, if the Bulls successfully land him, could use his shot to punish defences for double-teaming Derrick Rose and Carlos Boozer.

What role would McGrady play?

Rookie coach Tom Thibodeau must show T-Mac video of his time with the Toronto Raptors. Back then, he stuffed the stat-sheet, with points, blocks, steals, rebounds, and assists. Oh, and he defended, too.

Over the years, McGrady has become little more than a fragile scorer. And this doesn’t seem a fit for Chicago.
