But when Kobe does try it's still pretty
worthy for me.
Kobe can activate that Lockdown Defender signature anytime he wants. I just wish he did it more often to shut up all of the kids crying "KOBE IS DONE!1! HE CAN'T GUARD ANYONE!"
Anywho, the Bulls upcoming schedule looks really bad.
The Cavs suck, and I'm not even sure we'll win that game if Noah and Deng play like they did today.
Then again, they have been playing like 50mpg the past couple, so hopefully Thibs lets his starters rest a bit.
Bench Mob has definitely improved from last year, only person we didn't replace is Asik, who is having a monster year.
With Rose back, and when he is confident in his abilities, I think we could make a legit ECF run, and maybe Finals if everyone steps up.
But if we aren't going to be a top 4 seed, just tank and sit Rose out for the entire year.
Only activate him if we have a good chance at making a run.
