Bulls released G Mike James on Saturday.
That leaves the roster at 13 players and the Bulls are expected to sign a big man. Leon Powe and Joel Przybilla are both possibilities, as forward Luol Deng could be sidelined with a wrist injury. Jan 28 - 12:06 PM

MJ deserves a job no doubt in my mind. As a 3rd String pg I was impressed by him. I'd much much rather have him then John Lucas. The way he did pick and pop with Boozer was impressive. He'll get another job he deserved it.

Morons! There goes any chance that Chicago had at an NBA title this season, since they refuse to play the other GOAT.

Bulls made a fatal error here. Rose was clearly getting uncomfortable with James inching up to that starting spot. My sources told me the following:

"Luol Deng was so upset by the decision that he didn't play despite being healthy enough to do so against the Bucks... he will not play against the Heat either due to his frustrations"

"League MVP Derrick Rose said that "this was the last straw", and would either consider retirement or force his way to the NBDL upon hearing the news"

"One league source noted that the Bulls are ready to move on from Chicago"

:pity: And he was just getting ready to take the starting PG spot from Rose.

:nod:

Mike :worthy: James the greatest to ever lace them up. He's just too good for the Bulls. I mean it would never be right if a out of work NBDL all time greatest just showed up and took the reigning MVP spot in the starting line-up. He's just too great.

MIKE :worthy: JAMES

Tom Thibodeau announced at Bulls shoot around this morning that the team has released backup point guard Mike James. James has served two stints with the Bulls this season, most recently signing a 10-day contract in the wake of Derrick Rose's back injury. Chicago Sun-Times

Well, its that, and the fact that MJ was on a 10-day contract. JLIII is guaranteed at this point so he can't be cut.

James will probably be resigned before the playoffs I'm guessing.
