FINAL FOUR & MORE
A rather chalky Final Four this year. I have GTown, UCLA, Memphis and UNC. But where I differ is that I have GTown taking the championship. Anyone have any great upset picks or sleepers?
Guess who has been playing very well since coming to the Bulls? Drew Gooden. Gooden is averaging over 14 points a game on 47% shooting. He is pulling down 9.5 boards and 1.6 blocks per game. He makes his free throws. He does a little of everything. He’s not the most athletic guy, but I can see him being a part of the next solid Bulls team. I never thought he was that good coming out of Kansas, but I never thought he was as bad as people were making him out to be when the Bulls acquired him from Cleveland. And he has been effective off the bench and as a starter. I like him.
Tyrus Thomas has played 37 minutes in the last 3 Bulls games. Sure they want to make the playoffs. Sure Jim Boylan is trying to secure this job or a different one. But you have to play Thomas as much as possible.
And Al Gore can rest easy. Homer Derby tells us that Steve Trachsel is the cause of global warming.
