It's not just the shoe company being Derrick's mouthpiece. It is also BJ Armstrong - former Chicago Bull turned nemesis. BJ has always had an axe to grind with the organization. Cut twice by Reinsdorf. Back when the Bulls sucked (post Jordan, 1999-2005 ish), Jerry Kraus was running the show. Kraus hired BJ Armstrong, former Bulls player, to be a scout. Well, BJ wasn't exactly scouting much. He read philosophy books on company time in his office and chose to do other things unrelated to the job.

Fast forward a little bit, Reinsdorf fires Jerry Kraus and is looking for a new General Manager and front office team. BJ is interim GM in some sense, meaning Reinsdorf has him run day-to-day operations while Reinsdorf puts together a list of candidates he would like to interview. It's during this time that BJ Armstrong trades Elton Brand, rookie of the year and best Chicago Bulls player to where a uniform since Michael Jordan (Elton was really an excellent player in his younger years before injuries) for Tyson Chandler and Eddy Curry.

Neither Tyson nor Eddy worked out. Tyson was giving the guys to the city by BJ and was counted on to be the next Kevin Garnett, straight out of high school. It didn't work out, but Reinsdorf was frustrated with an epicly horrendous trade that changed the outlook of the franchise. Reinsdorf calls BJ into the office, tells him to pack up all his belongings and to NOT return again. Since BJ never had the power to make a decision himself with checking with his superiors (Reinsdorf), Jerry launches some type of investigation, that is dropped later on, into BJ not abiding by internal control procedures Jerry set forth.

Today, Rose is represented/advised by not only his very own brother, Reggie, but also by BJ Armstrong and his management firm. And BJ has as much to do with this whole ordeal as Adidas.

Consider yourself enlightened by MY POST.

Re: #DwightHowardsDad

Also, for what it is worth, Rose has said publicly that he can't dunk "off stride". I'm not going to imply that he is being deceptive, but Stacey King has confirmed on a radio show here locally that he has watched Rose dunk in shoot around on numerous occasions.

LeBron needs to lose some muscle, refs starting to treat him like a big now.

Re: D-GOD or D-DEVIL? #BAHGAWD #COUNTONKOBE

I really have no care for the rest of the season if D Rose chooses to not play for the entire season. Yes I want him to be fully fit and healthy, but if I was a member of the Bulls, after playing their hearts out and grinding it out. I'd be quite disappointed if Rose doesn't come back.

Dont know if it was mentioned or talked about but did anyone read the article or interview where Jordan said Kobe is better than Lebron and all he basically used was the ring argument.

If Lebron wins a title this year and is MVP again would anyone of you have them even. Ppl always bring up Kobe's 5 but rarely bring up only 2 finals mvps.

Re: D-GOD or D-DEVIL? #BAHGAWD #COUNTONKOBE

This kinda pisses me off. So should Harden not come back this season since they don't have a chance to win a championship? Deron Williams? Should all best players sit out for the season if they get injured because what's the point if their team isn't likely to win the championship? This line of thinking is getting a little absurd. If he is ever 100% healthy, he (or anyone else) should play, unless there is a medical certainty that re-injury is more probable with an early comeback.

If LeBron wins MVP and wins another title this year, he surpasses Kobe IMO.
