There's a lot of ink being wasted about why the Bulls suck so much, so perhaps it requires someone who watches virtually every NCAA tournament game but not really any pro games to clear things up. Let me see if I can make this as succinct as possible.
Summer, 2006: The Bulls possess a young, athletic team that lacks a low-post presence and a reliable scorer.
June 2006: The Bulls draft Tyrus Thomas, a young, athletic PF with unreliable, underdeveloped offensive skills.
July 2006: The Bulls sign Ben Wallace, a great defensive PF/C with no appreciable offensive skills.
July 2007: The Bulls call in a do-over on the Tyrus Thomas pick with Joakim Noah, a young, athletic PF with unreliable, underdeveloped offensive skills. He is, however, taller.
January 2008: Leading all of the above in MPG and PPG, and second in rebounds, is Joe Smith, a 32-year-old journeyman heretofore known for being one of the more disappointing #1 picks in recent history.
