Bulls sign Dwayne Wade

Thu Jul 07, 2016 8:16 am

So much for getting younger and more athletic. Wade is a bit past his prime. He will do OK, but too bad this wasn't 2010. good to see a big name not use the organization as leverage.

Bulls have no idea what they're doing. They say they're getting younger, then sign some 30+ year olds past their prime who don't fit their coaches scheme.

all I can think is they want a couple of known (former) big names to sell tickets while they gut the team around them and rebuild ... that's the only scenario that makes sense to me

and now, he's gone :

Dwyane Wade out for the rest of the regular season with elbow sprain/fracture
Dwyane Wade’s career in Chicago has likely come to an end, after what will eventually be remembered as 1,722 embarrassing minutes with the franchise. An injured right elbow initially diagnosed as a “hyperextension” awaiting an MRI turn, during Wednesday’s loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, has now been classified as a sprain and fractured elbow, and the future Hall of Famer will be done for the season.

The injury is the latest in another long line of blows for a Bulls team that, with each passing week of the 2016-17 season, appears to have deserved every one of them. It will be a shame to see Wade and his 18.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game done for the season, but a far weaker disappointment than the one that would have arisen should those contributions been taken away from the ascending and potentially playoff-bound Miami Heat.

Those Heat, a club that Wade left after 13 years due to a contract dispute in 2016, are currently tied for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. They sit a game above the No. 10 Bulls in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year for Miami. The Bulls, who signed Wade to a two-year, $47 million contract last offseason, were expected by the team’s front office to approach contender status in the East, but Chicago sits out of the postseason bracket with 14 to play despite a spectacular season from Jimmy Butler.

Team is dead. I enjoy the franchise implosion, personally.
