    Bulls-Related Question Thread

    Post all question-type stuff in here boiz. No need to open up new threads throughout the year like "Should the Bulls trade _____" when there haven't been rumors for it, and no need for a single thread devoted to other questions like "When Should We Amnesty Boozer?"


    So, I thought it was a good idea to have a "Bulls-Related Questions Thread" for all of those miscellaneous inquiries we stumble upon but that don't really fit in any other thread (like the Trade/Acquisition Thread or the Around the NBA Thread) and something that doesn't deserve it's own thread.



    I'll start us off with a question that some might open a whole new thread for that has yet to be asked:


    Question #1: If Derrick Rose retired today, would his #1 be retired in the rafters?




    Now Go!

    One could argue that Rose is:

    1) a Chicago-kid who is (just guessing here) already the 2nd most important player to ever play in terms of revenue and bringing attention to the team and city
    2) he's been an MVP and has set multiple records for the Bulls
    3) he's the perfect role-model for all kids

    to me, that would be enough to retire his number because he's the perfect professional, has proven to be a top-10 player when healthy, and has won an MVP. When you think of the Bulls, you think of Derrick Rose nowadays. And when you think of Derrick, you think of the Bulls. In the hypothetical, I think a lot of fans would want his number retired.

    Who ever is in charge of it? Every number that bulls have retired have been with bulls organization for 10 or more years.

    Definitely in the rafters. The youngest MVP guarantees it. Not to mention he's from Chicago.

    I wouldn't put it up there. MVP is nice but I would at least wait to see if he can make it to the finals.

    I like the idea of this thread because not every question deserves it's own thread.

    --

    The Bulls get a lot of tip ins off a missed shot, sometimes 3 tips before it falls in, does each tip count as an offensive rebound?

    What is the +/- stat on NBA.com?

    I can't for the life of me figure out how Boozer got -10 last night, no matter what it could mean. It has to be a very terrible stat if it isn't just a typo
