    In 2014 this is our salary as of now.

    And............................ Even if the Bulls didn't sign Taj to the extension they would still have no money to sign a free agent that would change the landscape of the franchise.

    Everybody knows the only time the Bulls can think of signing a marquee free agent is for the 2014/2015 season. This year and next year the only moves the Bulls can make are trades. That's all.

    Yet you fall in love with guys that aren't even in the league anymore? You know if we didn't sign Taj, we would have zero bench going forward and have no money to spend after we do sign a free agent in 2014 right? This isn't NBA2K. You of all people in the entire forum have no realistic opinion about anything.

    Yeah but I'm not saying sign those guys for 5+ million or anything. I said sign them for vet minimum. Making less than a million is a lot different than paying someone 8 million a year.

    I know man, I'm with you

    Bill Russell never made this kind of money

    I can't believe Taj makes this much... A role player making more then one of the greatest of all time

    It's insane

    You just don't get it. Taj does nothing for the revenue of the team. He doesn't increase the franchise's revenue and what they will make. Someone like Bill Russell makes the team more profitable and thus deserves the money he makes.

    I don't get the expectation that Taj was ever going to present a mid-range shot. It's not as if he will wake up and suddenly become Dirk - though Taj with a flowing blonde mane would be

    Taj's jump shot mechanics and face up game were among his largest weaknesses coming out of college and for some reason people are surprised they still bother him.

    What is the major reason that a team earns revenue? The answer is winning. Does Taj help the Bulls win games? Yes, he normally does. Thus, indirectly he increases the revenue of the team.

    You take things so far and grandiose that it's hilarious when you're proven wrong, yet again

    Taj will never be a good shooter. But i'm still holding out hope he'll be respectable and get up to the 38% range from 10-23 feet. That's all he needs to do... make 2/5 shots from those ranges a game. Let's hope he pulls it together and actually adjusts his mechanics because, while i don't believe mechanics have to be "right," I do believe that bad mechanics only work for certain individuals.

    We also have this guy, you might have heard of him and I hear he's good for revenue. Derrick Rose.
