What the Bulls are Saying

On KG not playing in first round:

”I’ll believe it when I see it,” Bulls forward John Salmons said. ”I’m not buying it.”

‘Kevin could say all of a sudden he feels better and wants to play 20 minutes, [so] we’ll prepare for both ways just to cover our bases,” coach Vinny Del Negro said. ”That’s the smart thing to do.

Like most coaches on the eve of a playoff series, Del Negro had kind words for a lot of guys in green:

“There’s a lot to worry about, not just Kevin. [Kendrick] Perkins has hurt us. Leon Powe, Glen Davis, Mikki Moore — they have a very strong team. Kevin missed 20-some games, and they still won [62]. They’re the defending world champs. They’re battle-tested. They have home court. We haven’t played well there at all. We have our hands full. But we’ll prepare and get after it.”

Mikki Moore? That’s proof Del Negro is full of it. Just kidding Mikki – we love you.

  1. Del Negro pulling old school statements LOL Nice try Vinny

  2. If we can rest KG and make it all the way to the ECF, I still have a feeling we might see some play time for KG, unless we are playing really well without him… haha

  3. Yea Double P – KG Who? LOL Kidding Kidding.

  4. I’ve heard the “”I’m not buying it” sentiment from a few people on the interwebs. People are so hungry for conspiracy theories these days

  5. I don’t want to know how KG is feeling right now. He must be in some serious health trouble, no way he would sit out a playoff game with a minor injury.

  6. Maybe John Salmons believes in Big Foot, Alien abduction, money falling from trees, and Angelina Jolie calling him at 2am for a bootie call.

  7. Here’s what the Bulls will be saying in about another week: “Jesus…Perkins really is a Beast..” “Powe was just punishing us down low..” “We just had no answer for Pierce..” “Eddie just had one of those nights where everything went in…” “Rondo just gets better and better each game……” “Ray Allen is the consumate professional-the guy just takes care of business……..”

  8. LOL @ salmons i thought it was only celtics fans still thinking kg might suddenly appear to play
    LOL @ the mikki moore references didn’t he foul out after a so-so game and leave pierce to play back-up center?

  9. why do people think if we make the ECF, theres a chance KG will comeback? that would be stupid. he wouldnt have played competive basketball in what, 4 months? hed be on a bum knee (hello its not healing people) and at that point we’d be better off playing 100% glen davis and not risking KGs career and possibly set him back for next season. I dont even want to see KG until training camp.

    lets go

  10. Also, why would John salmons think we’re bullshitting everyone ?

    hello, that would be playing mind games with our entire team more then it would the bulls…..

    Also I am entirely sick of people basically saying this team is nothing without KG, KG can do no wrong, KG is the greatest defender ever, noones ever scored on him and we’d sweep the playoffs with him, and hes by far our best player
    Bullshit ( KG had a bad year even when healthy, and was having the worst year of the big 3) KG also needs this team to win, KG has never carried a team by himself, and he never carried this team. lets get it done without him

  11. I agree, just get the surgery already.

  12. ^ My thought exactly!

  13. In related news, at least to those of us not as ridiculous as Mr. Salmons, Big Baby is ready to become a legend in this town….

    “Don’t count the Ticket Stub out. You might need the ticket to get into the game but you leave with the ticket stub because you’ll never forget this game. You’ll need it as a souvenir.”
