For The Record...

...I would like to note that John Hollinger's extensive statistical analysis of the Bulls' woes uncovers nothing more tangible than my own somewhat more metaphysical meanderings on the topic. Or, as the more condensed version of that post might have it: We can say for certain that the Bulls are suffering, but we cannot explain that suffering.

Anyway, here's Hollinger, groping in the abyss:

The one move that would have the biggest impact is doing something -- anything -- to get Hinrich back on track. He's the one who is most off his game right now, and as the guy who has the ball in his hands on nearly every Chicago possession, that's a problem. Worse yet, I'm not sure what the solution would be, and it largely depends on whether you think the problems are physical or psychological.


It's poll-time, readers! What should the Bulls do to get Hinrich back on track?

A) His problems are physical: Feed him some steroids and put him on the rack.

B) His problems are psychological: Feed him some Prozac and send him to a hypnotist

C) It's his self-esteem: Skiles should try fondling Kirk's balls.

D) Other (Explain in Comments)

D) Marital problems.

Skiles needs to buy Hinrich an 8-ball and a hooker. He'll loosen up greatly after that.

It's B, but the remedy for C might do the trick.

Half A, Half B.

Kirk's banged up fingers are surely effecting his shooting, but the pass to Noah clearly shows his "mind is playing tricks on him" to quote the seminal rap crew Geto Boys.

I think Skiles is on the right track with his tough love approach.
Kirk does simply need to play better.

Honestly I hate this 4 day break with no games. Who made this fucking schedule?

D) Hinrich had a career year in '06-'07, so now he's overcompensating to keep expectations low.
