Looks like good timing for the MJ vs. Bulls matchup this week. MJ is looking incredible as of late, and the Bulls after a 2 game win streak and a solid performance against Dallas, the hottest team in b-ball right now, are looking like they might not embarass themselves as often as usual. Perhaps this game might not be only worth watching for the gawk value of seeing Michael against his old team. I just hope the Bulls are learning how to throw those Cartwright elbows in preparation for Michael.
I just hope one day they release this and the Jan. 19 game in Chicago on DVD with a multi-angle option where I can have the game in a little box in the corner, and the main part of the screen just a camera showing Jerry Krause's reactions to watching the game.
...Damn. Reinsdorf is a freaking MORON, refusing several years ago to let Jordan have a piece of the team. Now the spectre of MJ has come back to haunt the Bulls.
What's worse is that with Kukoc on the Hawks and Horace Grant on the Magic, the Bulls are getting whooped by their old players all the time.
In a few years, when the Bulls get decent again, the same thing will happen once more. Reinsdorf will want all the credit, instead of giving it to the coach and players where it's due, and will feel the need to rebuild his team once more. And as long as people keep coming to the United Center, that's what's going to happen. Forever, and ever. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
And that, as they say, is that.

They've become an even more interesting soap opera than usual lately... first off the incident with Rafer Alston and Sam Mitchell, and GM Mike Babcock taking Alston's side: http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Basketball/NBA/Toronto/2005/02/08/924624-ap.
