Bulls Win 1, Lose 2 Over the Last 4 Nights + Iverson Goes to the Pistons

By Sean Mackey

Friday night was terrible. The Bulls were manhandled by the Celtics, Rose looked great though. I think VDN waited too long to put him back in during the 4th quarter. The Celtics defense is just ridculously sufficating. Yeah, all teams could be like that, but in all seriousness, it's a bore to watch. Bill Walker didn't play so we didn't get to see if him and Tyrus would jaw it out. Oh well.

Saturday evening the Bulls played the Grizzlies and won by 10. Rose had 27 points and Gooden had 20 rebounds, not bad. I totally forgot this game was going on and didn't catch a minute of it.

Last night, unforunately I had to work and didn't get to catch the game against the Magic. Dwight Howard is the most dominant center in the game, trying to stop him is impossible. The Magic only won by 3 but personally, I think they're on the decline with the exception of Howard.

The Bulls need to make a trade sometime soon, we need a post up guy really bad. I've been saying this for 3 years. Why oh why did we not trade Luol Deng for Pau Gasol? Seriously, in retrospect it seemed risky but we'd be winning sooo many more games with that man.

Speaking of trades, Nuggets all-star Allen Iverson was traded yesterday to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess. McDyess will likely be waived because he refuses to put on a Nuggets jersey for the 3rd time in his career. This move was a steal for the Pistons, Iverson and Wallace come off the books after this season so they'll have room to sign Lebron or Bosh in 2010 which is some serious wishful thinking. I have no reason to believe LeBron will spend his prime in Detroit, Bosh maybe, not LeBron though. For this season, Iverson will do just fine, the guy can pass but he definitely is a shoot first kind of dude. I've always liked AI though so if he does win a title with the Pistons, good for him, he deserves it.

The Bulls next game is tomorrow against the Cavs. It'll be nationally broadcasted on ESPN, so hopefully they don't make complete asses out of themselves.
