View Full Version : How is Chicago not a "superteam"?

People seem to pick on the Knicks, Heat and other teams for deliberately forming "superteams" and for Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Deron Williams to be next to follow suit.

How did the Bulls not do the same? They signed Boozer to a massive contract in the offseason and without him, they wouldn't be nearly where they are now. He's an All-Star (even though he didn't make it this year) and the main reason (besides Rose) the Bulls are elite this season. Arguably, he's played better than Bosh too this season.

Putting an elite PF next to a elite PG sounds like "teaming up" to me.

Boozer is the only star player they didn't draft.

Knicks traded for their best players, Miami signed two star players, Boston traded/signed for their players. The Bulls developed a majority of their starters through the draft.

Signing a Free agent doesn't then make you a "superteam". It is the process of how it went down in Miami, and how it could be going down in New York that separates it. Boozer isn't a superstar in the very least either. He is a borderline all-star who is an undersized PF. Nice player, they had money and needed to make an addition. Since they didn't land LBJ, Wade or Bosh and Amare, Joe Johnson were already signed, Boozer was the best fit left on the market. The rest of their main "stars" or contributors are draft picks (Rose, Deng, Noah).

I think its because of the way Chicago's team was formed. They didn't go out and trade for a superstar to become instantly better like New York who brought in Amare or Miami with Bosh and Lebron. Instead they drafted their superstar and built around him over the past few seasons, similar to what OKC has done with Durant. This offseason the bulls primarily added role players. Boozer is a great addition to the team, but he's essentially a role player that provides the team with low post offense.

Boozer is hardly a superstar. No one buys Boozer shoes or sees him in commercials every other night.

The Bulls built most of their team through the draft. Deng, Rose, Noah, etc. are home grown.

There is no comparison here.

well for much of the year most on here wouldnt call either player elite,so it has to go alot on their personal feelings of our players.to call us a super team is admitting we have good players,something most people on this site would rather die than do

I don't see how the Bulls can be considered a Super Team or whatever the hell you wanna call it. They really just added ONE high priced player in Boozer and then a bunch of good role players in Brewer, Korver, Watson & of course the missing piece Brian Scalabrine. Most of their young core (Rose, Deng, Noah, Asik, Gibson) was drafted though.

Also with these other Super Teams you have 3 players that are usually considered elite and it's hard to distinguish whose team it really is. This is clearly Rose's team and it's a very good team.

I think this thread is missing the concept of a "SUPERTEAM". I would say a "superteam" is a combination of 3 or more stars on a single team.

Like Boston, Miami, San Antonio, and eventually NYC.

Chicago is a great team. But Boozer is a borderline allstar and honestly when the game is on the line.....Derrick Rose is the only true option to go to.

Chi is still a great team, it is just by definition a superteam is a team of stars.

We have maybe a top 5 player and a top 20 player in Boozer. We don't have multiple top 10 players.

Furthermore, we didn't buy all of our guys in FA. Wade was, of course, a Heat the year before and his whole career so I guess he doesn't count. But the thing that makes Miami unique and (to an extent) NY is that they got rid of basically everything they had to have a couple of top 10 players (and in Miami's case a couple of top 5 players).

And the reason Miami takes so much **** is the way they went about it. They knew months in advance this was quite likely to happen Bosh said it in that ****ing parade they threw. They dragged other teams along for Wade's stupid as **** documentary. Then they threw themselves a parade. Wade proclaimed them "likely the greatest trio ever" LeBron said, "It's gonna be easy." Etc, etc, etc. That's the reason people ****ing hate them.

I do think the Bulls have a big four just like the Celtics have a big four. But they didn't put together a superteam through free agency or trades. Boozer was the only allstar level player they brought in. The rest were good role players, like Brewer, Korver, Asik, Thomas and I guess even Bogans. The other big three were all top 10 draft picks in Rose, Noah and Deng. The difference is these three don't get talked about like Pierce/Allen/Garnett or Wade/Bosh/Lebron or Melo/Amare do. Because Deng, Rose and Noah have always played together. They weren't on other teams as the main guy, like those other players were.



Boozer isn't a superstar in the very least either. He is a borderline all-star who is an undersized PF. Nice player, they had money and needed to make an addition

I wouldn't say superstar, but he's an all-star player not borderline allstar. I know Bulls fans are a bit down on him because he's slumped the past month. But he will get rolling again, just like he was in December and Janauary. Remember a month ago, tons of Bulls fans were upset he didn't make the allstar team because he was performing so well at the time. Ever since that Febuary 9th game in Utah he hasn't really performed at the same level for whatever reason. He's still averaged over 15 PPG and 8 rebounds during his struggles, but it's not the 20/10 guy we saw early in the season. Boozer has been a quality allstar level player for a while though, so he will get hot again. It seems like either he's not getting enough shots some game or when he does he struggles shooting.



because they don't have a superstar

Yep the likely 2010-2011 MVP isn't a superstar :facepalm:

This is my sentiment exactly! We aren't star powered outside of Rose/Boozer, we are team oriented and based of plays and role players. I love this team. Now if only they could get a 2 guard that could knock down the wide open 3's Bogans so often misses lol.

I agree I see the Bulls have a Spurs type team in the East. They have three pretty good players in Rose/Boozer/Deng like the Spurs had Parker/Duncan/Manu, with Noah being spark plug guy like Bruce Bowen was. Sure Noah not a lockdown defender as Bowen was, but he's the energy type player who will get tons of rebounds, play good d and score a little. But both teams are deep and play strong defense. But yes we need to hope Bogans(who was the Spurs starting SG last year in the same role) is hitting those open threes come playoff time.



He missed a few today, but over the two months he has shot very well. So hopefully that's the guy we get in the playoffs, and not the Bogans we saw in November and December. If he is struggling with his shot hopefully Thibs decides to give Butler a try out in that spot then. But the combo of Bogans,Brewer,Korver could be a enough, if Korver/Bogans are shooting well. Because remember Bogans starts, but he plays less then Brewer/Korver. So Brewer/Korver play is also very important for that spot as well. I think Thibs likes to start Bogans, because he likes his defense/outside shooting ability combo with the rest of the starters. Sure he's not a great shooter, but he is much better outside shooter then Brewer, and better defender then Korver. But that's why Bogans plays mostly only in the 1st and 3rd, and he flips flops Korver/Brewer in the 2nd and 4th quarters a lot. Since in crunch time you want your best shooting option on offense and best on defense. Not the guy who's a ok shooter and solid/good defender.

Ehh don't even bring up Boozer and Eddy Curry in the same sentences. Boozer is a two time allstar, who should be a 3 or 4 time allstar really. When you consider he got snubbed last season and the only reason he didn't make it this year is because he missed too many games. There's probably only 10-12 so called superstars in the NBA right now(at this stage of their careers) in my book. Boozer isn't one of them, either is Bosh and the Celtics have none. But that doesn't mean they aren't all really good players.

I don't like this Bulls team being compared to the Heat or Knicks. They are better than both of them. And the Celtics are a Big 3, but not as much of a super team. The only way in which the Bulls are a super team is that they are one of the top teams in the NBA. We have an MVP candidate, low-post threat, energy center that plays defense and rebounds, a wing that can slash, hit the mid-range J and play D, as well as a deep bench suited to fit our starting line up. You could just say our GM knows how to put together a team.

I see Superteams as being made up of at least 2 elite players.

Boston has Garnett and Pierce while they have an allstar in Allen.
Miami has Wade and Lebron with an allstar in Bosh
New York with melo and Amar'e with Billups.

Chicago has 1 elite and one allstar type player in Boozer. The thing with them is they are very well rounded. Better build than NY and Miami and close to Boston.

If I'm a Chicago fan I'd be thrilled that the Bulls aren't considered a superteam. You did it the right way. Via draft mostly and filled actual need in free agency.

Knicks traded for their best players, Miami signed two star players, Boston traded/signed for their players. The Bulls developed a majority of their starters through the draft.

thats easy to say when you have a number 1 pick...

Yes we are a super team. Rose, Boozer, and Bogans. Arguably the greatest trio of all time. The superteam celebration was awesome in Grant Park. The fans got to see them be interviewed and walk down the catwalk. Talk about how many championships they were going to win. It was simply put, awesome.

:laugh:
Yeah I went to that celebration. Bogans dance really set it off.

Sure, we got Rose with the first pick, but we also drafted Deng and Noah, a lot of our important players are homegrown players, our role players are the ones we picked up over the summer.

People seem to pick on the Knicks, Heat and other teams for deliberately forming "superteams" and for Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Deron Williams to be next to follow suit.

How did the Bulls not do the same? They signed Boozer to a massive contract in the offseason and without him, they wouldn't be nearly where they are now. He's an All-Star (even though he didn't make it this year) and the main reason (besides Rose) the Bulls are elite this season. Arguably, he's played better than Bosh too this season.

Putting an elite PF next to a elite PG sounds like "teaming up" to me.

This is funny, in the beggining of the year the rest of PSD told us we didn't even have a top 10 player, or a top 5 PG. We DEFINATELY didn't have an MVP candidate or Superstar. What a difference 61 games makes. Bulls fans were saying it all along, and the rest of the NBA told the Heat fans they would have problems with touches and drama, but they didn't listen. Derrick Rose isn't trying to team up with his buddies, but if anyone wants to "Weeein" they should hitch their wagons to his train bc this boy is here for a long long time.

I would strongly encourage Bulls fans not to waste their time responding to this post (or to anything else written by godolphins). First, it is never worthwhile to argue with someone whose viewpoints lack any reasoning whatsoever. Second, he appears to have the cognitive skills of an 8 year old. Third, he is fast becoming the Heat's "domefavors" -- the poster that is all over the place and hated by his own fan base.

Note, I am a Raptors fan, so I am not violating my own advice.

As a Blackhawks fan I went thourgh all that last season all the way up to the point when Kane scored in Game 6. Some how some way the Hawks were never good enough and they would get beat. Heard it all season long and through every playoff series. How did that work out for everyone? LOL

So you should hate a team because they got the #1 pick? Do you also hate the Clippers, Wizards (twice), Bucks, Magic, Raptors, and Rockets (plus a few other teams I'm forgetting). They've all had #1 picks in the past 10 years. Where are they? Getting a #1 pick does not make you an elite team.

Chicago has earned the right, over the regular season, to be called a contender. Now, that being said, they still haven't moved past the 1st round under the Rose era. Their season will hinge on playoff success this year, as any contenders should.

But they have shown, they are a top 5 team this season, and can compete with anyone.

So now Bulls start winning and all of a sudden they have a "Super Team"??? That is made up of a 1 All-star???

Really??

Now, go make a top 10-20 player list and see how many Bulls players show up in there? A lot of you even have D-Rose in the 8th to 10th best in that list and Boozer in top 20 while Deng would barely crack top 30.

If that is a super team, then I guess there are like a lot of super teams in the NBA.

Boozer is like Pau without as much length, tougher though.
Noah is like Bynum

Im a Hawks fan too, last season was awesome, and if they keep playing like this then we have a good shot this year too. If only the Bears could have beaten the Packers, would be the greatest year in Chi town sports history. I don't care what everyone says anymore, I already have a quote picked out I made before the season started about Derrick Rose and how we will just let his play do the talking for us. I've just gotten so angry by the stupidity, stubbornness, and ignorance that I have lowered myself to some of their levels at times.

signing a free agent doesn't then make you a "superteam". It is the process of how it went down in miami, and how it could be going down in new york that separates it. Boozer isn't a superstar in the very least either. He is a borderline all-star who is an undersized pf. Nice player, they had money and needed to make an addition. Since they didn't land lbj, wade or bosh and amare, joe johnson were already signed, boozer was the best fit left on the market. The rest of their main "stars" or contributors are draft picks (rose, deng, noah).

It's just the Miami Haters who are trying to shake some of the Heat for their teams FAILURES.

to be honest, the Bulls (a fan) kind of remind of the a modern-version of the 2001 76ers. Rose taking the role as AI, the great defense, Boozer as 2nd option (his points come off of Rose's dimes). I say "Modern" because nowadays every team has more offensive options, before there was the dynamic duo, now theres big 3 or 4 that win championships.

They are not a super team. The Bulls built a team the right way. They made the correct draft picks when needed (noah, rose, deng, gibson), they cleared cap space through trades and letting people walk (Gordon, Hinrich etc), they had space to sign an all-star callibur player (boozer), they brought in a coach that get it (thibs), and they have bought into his system. Then comes your role players.

It took a looooooong time, but the Bulls built a team.


None of these players said that they are all going to sign in one spot as FAs. None of these players demanded trades to Chicago. This was a team built through a tedious process and team chemistry.

They are a solid TEAM, and by the way only have 1 all star
