Ok, so what did Noah do to the Suns announcers? I didn't see all of the game.
Looking at the bench production over the past couple of games, it's easy to see that a majority of the Bulls productivity falls on the starters:
Bulls: 74 minutes, 24 pts, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks
Suns: 104 minutes, 42 pts, 22 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals, 3 blocks
Bulls: 75 minutes, 18 pts, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, 0 blocks
Celtics: 80 minutes, 27 pts, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, 0 steals, 1 block
Bulls vs Minny - skewed due to injury.
Bulls: 58 minutes, 14 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 0 blocks
Thunder: 70 minutes, 29 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, 1 block
Bulls vs Magic - Nate's production won the game.
It's not much of a stretch to look at the production, particularly on the offensive end and suggest that the Bulls bench is worse. There is no real consistent offense coming off the bench leaving players to come up with streaky performances to cover for the starters and that's the real scare for this team - another starter missing extended time due to injury.
I will take a longer look at bench scoring averages and compare to last year for a closer look. I also understand how relative the minutes played are (for example: I would like to think that the fewer bench minutes the Bulls run compares just as favorably as the opponents proportion of bench minutes against Bulls starters).

Mayo never gave the Bulls the interview they had scheduled with him. He took the Mavs offer as soon as it was set on the table (signed the same day he first visited them). And, the Bulls had a hard-cap set, so the only way to acquire Mayo was through a sign & trade with Memphis who we all know deliberately refuses to deal with Chicago.
I wish we could get OJ next year, but if he continues this he will get a lot of money. I personally think it'd be worth it, but whatevs.
I think Memphis despite their feelings towards Chicago may have done a s&t cuz they were never keeping mayo so i figured they would at least take something back for him.
I wanted mayo so bad
