But, part of the Bulls problem is/was that outside of Rose, no one else was really great at getting their own points without help from...well, Rose. I dont think Hamiliton addresses that problem, and the Bulls may still be a few points short...
I feel the same way because if he was then he would still be in Detroit where he won a title. Everyone gets older and slows down and now Hamilton can probably contribute a little off the bench but we will see that player from 2004/2005.

I was mainly thinking of Horford...and also in error forgot Johnson was getting up there.

That man's a freaking nightmare to try and score against!

lol....at #30 in the draft.....pretty decent draft class. Cleveland got KI and Thompson, Bulls got Mirotic and Butler. Spurs got Kwahi,GS got Klay etc. etc etc.

2011 NBA draft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's not hard to spot the perennially good and bad teams, this draft really makes the point as you see Kwahi, Klay and Butler down the list way past inferior players.
