I'm Out For Presidents To Represent Me

(Say what?)

I'm out for black presidents to represent me.

And to keep the theme going, why in the hell is Tyrus Thomas suddenly playing basketball like he's John Frickin' McCain? With apologies to Matt, it wasn't only his TOs that demanded VDN bench him, but even more the fact that he apparently couldn't guard Rashard Lewis in transition if his life depended on it. The missed jump shots are one thing; he's taking too many maybe, but for the most part they haven't been forced. But to let Rashard Lewis absolutely embarrass you? Come on, Ty! We want to love you. I think even Vinny wants to love you. But you gotta love us back.

He's thinking too much. Someone in the organization needs to get through to Tyrus or he'll be another flash in the pan.

The sad part is I don't think Tyrus can take people telling him what to do. I wish the Bulls could find a Scottie Pippen type or Ron Harper to get through to him.

Remember when he could dunk on almost anyone? What happened? Has he lost some of his vertical already?

Last why the fuck can't the Bulls run the alley op for this kid?

It's fucking simple Rose has the ball Noah sets a pick, lob it up and let him do all the work. Why is it so hard?

Tyrus not playing creates a whole lot of other problems, too, like having to play Noc minutes at the SF where he gets abused by the Pierce's and LeBron's of the world. And it's just not justifiable to play Noc and TT at the same time if TT isn't bringing anything to the table.

But this is a rebuilding year, so take the lumps and see if Tyrus can learn how to adapt his play from game to game. Otherwise, he is going to tantalize us every fifth game like he has been for the last few years.
