Asik is worth his contract but at the time when he was offered the money I don't think he was worth it. A player averaging 15 minutes per game with career averages of 3 ppg and 3rpg was a gamble for the Rockets that is paying off so far and is looking like a steal.

But if we were to re-sign him he most likely would of had the same role he had with us and paying a back up C 8 million per year would have been a mistake. Too bad we couldn't give him a Gortat type of contract.

He's still overpayed But at the end of the day, they HAD to overpay him in order to sign him. Yea he's playing well, doing things that most Bulls fans already knew he could do and has done off the bench for us. But that doesn't take away from the fact that he's still overpayed.

It's the NBA, with only 15men rosters, sometimes you have to overpay for a solid center, but lets not pretend he isn't.

No way in hell would I walk into 2014 FA summers with 2 bench players on guaranteed contracts... Not being cheap, it's about protecting the future. We also got Mirotic who should be over by 2014, another stud European who's 6'10 that can dribble and shoot and gave Gasol and Randolph fits in the pre season, also played well against the Raptors.. The Bulls european league scouts are pretty solid, netting us prospects like Nocioni to Thabo to Asik and now Mirotic.. Bulls are fine, we not worried about Asik, wish him the best though.

so basically your saying you understand in basketball terms why he got paid that much, but you're not mad at Asik for getting that much?

Can't be upset or mad, but am I disappointed that he's not coming off the bench for us? Of course, but he was offered a starting spot and a lot of money.. Something he simply would not have gotten in Chicago.

It's no different from the Gortat situation in Orlando. Our front court depth took a hit with his departure, but losing a player like Asik doesn't set your franchise back, especially with the role he had and the minutes he played.

so my question is... if bulls fans arent angry that the Rockets paid up to fill a need at Center, why is the world so mad that they paid up that exact same amount to fill a need Point Guard?
Isn't that the Rocket's money to spend and nobody elses?

Again, who said the Bulls fans are mad? Thats a conclusion YOU came up with. In every post, I've said we don't care we are not worried. How does that equate to us being upset?


If you are referring to some of the other Bulls fans post, I doubt any of them are mad, and only responding to the notion that we some how "lost", by losing a 15min per game big man who would have never gotten a larger role with us.

I knew you and bulls fans werent mad....I heard nothing from yall when it happened, the Bulls even took and an out for Asik in the Chicago paper thanking him for his time being on the team.... I was just trying to set up a premise thru my questioning.. mainly...

hypocrisy about feelings of one player getting a contract they didnt deserve, compared to feelings of another player getting that exact same contract on the same team...which they also didnt deserve...but I guess I didn't make it clear enough.
