OK, so Rip Hamilton's probably no longer a huge impact signing, certainly not as big a story as Chris Paul or Dwight Howard. I'd just hate to be the one to break the sequence.
Rip Hamilton, who was released by the Pistons, yesterday agreed to a three-year deal with the Chicago Bulls.
Y'know, even as a Pacers fan I always liked and respected Rip Hamilton, even though I generally wanted to kick the Pistons in the head. I think he'll be a good fit in Chicago, and deserves to spend this part of his career on a championship-contending team.

Winning tends to solve everything and this team will be doing a lot of winning. I think this makes the Bulls the favorites. If there's one thing they were missing last year, it was that veteran presence. This team was too young and it showed when they wilted in the playoffs.
I had this whole long post extolling the virtues of Carolina, but I don't really think it's needed. Suffice it to say: I disagree. I don't think that three years of sub-par play by the Heels suddenly makes Maryland the top dog.
