On the disappointing Bulls (13-31 at week's end):
"The only guy worth keeping from the Jerry Krause era is Tyson Chandler, who lacks toughness but at least seems willing to work. Eddy Curry began this season well but is back to his old unproductive self. The way he plays makes you question his desire. He's only 21, and he still could develop into a solid NBA center; it just doesn't look like that's going to happen while he's in Chicago. I would also look for them to unload Jamal Crawford, who isn't a true point guard, and bring in more guys like rookie point guard Kirk Hinrich—resilient players in the mold of G.M. John Paxson and coach Scott Skiles who can bring some toughness to the team."
