eh, possible if they stay healthy. The Bulls should be a 4-5 seed I would think.

Doesn't it say 30 pts better aka averaging Boozer and his PPG? I don't think he meant games.

Bulls will be good, but 71 wins? Impossible

I'm sorry but did the article changed? When I originally clicked it T-Mac said when you add me and Boozer we're 30 POINTS better. The picture and everything changed.

He meant 30 games over(more than) .500. Therefore a record of 56-26. I think thats a stretch, but its possible.

Isn't THIS what you originally posted?

http://www.chicagobreakingsports.com/2010/07/mcgrady-works-out-for-bulls.html

Where it says "I'd fit in well. I bring what I know about the game and my athleticism and versatility. Knowing my smarts for the game, leadership, anything I can add to get these guys over the edge. Without me, without (Carlos) Boozer, they're a .500 club. With the guys we added, we'll be 30 points better."- McGrady

Looks like they just misquoted him in Bleacher.

He meant 56

Then again it is Bleacherreport who last week were reporting him to the Lakers

"Without me, without (Carlos) Boozer, they're a .500 club. With the guys we added, we'll be 30 better," McGrady said

Well I agree if by "30 better" he means being a .530 club rather than .500 club (43-44 wins).....otherwise, it just defies logic although they definitely be a 50 win team if everything falls together.

On a side note, did anyone else laugh at this quote?

"I'd fit in well. I bring what I know about the game and my athleticism and versatility."

T-mac's knowledge of the game = limited to the reg. season
T-mac's athleticism = long since gone
T-mac's versatility = (see "T-mac's athleticism")

It's ok, thought I was losing my mind though lol. But on that site it says 30 points, looks like BR just took off the points part.

Why are the Bulls giving him a chance. I rather play Brewer and Korver (SF I know...) than Tmac.

Bleacher Report is not a credible source.

No mention of this anywhere else. If you find a link, I think it's probably better off being posted in the Bulls forum anyways.

We have had enough T-Mac/Chicago talk today.
