Questions for everyone.  Let's start with Bulls' fan Rickhouse at Tremendous Upside Potential:

1.  The Bulls need a down low presence, right?  I know you are a Kobe fan (so am I), but why not trade for Jermaine O'Neal, or something along those lines?  Or do you believe that the Bulls can continue to progress and advance with not one, but two positions contributing little offensively - PF and C?

2.  Give me a review of Joe Kim Noah so far, and how you think the PF situation will play itself out. 

3.  Was it mistake to not trade for Pau Gasol last season?  Would you make the move now if it was an option?

4.  Pick one song you would want to kick ass at karaoke to.  Any song you which you could pull off.

Questions for Pacers fan The GM at Arin It Out:

1.  A 3-0 start.  How does that fit in with the plan?  I, like a lot of other wanna-be experts, predicted a last place finish for the Pacers.  Perhaps that will still happen, but what if the Pacers are competing for a playoff spot?  Do you still trade Jermaine O'Neal and try to clear cap space, or do you go for that 8th seed or whatever?

2.  Danny Granger, as you noted, has jumped off to a good start.  The entire team has, actually.  Who has been overachieving, and who is legit?

3.  If you trade Jermaine O'Neal, what do you do think is a fair offer for him?  Who would be a good matchup in a trade - the Lakers, the Bulls, someone else?

Questions for Philly fan Brian at Depressed Fan:

1.  Holy cow... with the Pacers, Bobcats and Hawks all off to good starts, and the Atlantic Conference looking as strong as advertised (meaning the Raptors, Nets, Celtics and Knicks are all looking good), are you guys the worst team in the Eastern Conference?  And, if so, is that a good thing in terms of rebuilding?

2.  What free agents do you go after with all the cap space clearing this offseason?  Or do you roll the dice, and trade for a guy like Jermaine O'Neal, and combine him with Miller and Iguodala? 

3.  Where's Ricky from Sixers4Guidos these days?  He's had like only four posts since September. 

Questions for Bulls fan Jack Cobra at Cobra Brigade:

1.  If Isiah Thomas offered you Eddy Curry back, in exchange for Joe Kim Noah and Tyrus Thomas, would you accept that trade?

2.  Do you believe that Scott Skiles and John Paxson have the Bulls on the right track?

3.  Name your three favorite Jay-Z songs.

thanks for mentioning my poor blog

I was always here, just a little break, including a hectic working period & 4 days trip to Rome with my wife

now I am back at 100% with my usual loda of BS

more posts coming soon (to anwere to your question, Sixers desperately need a PF so I would go after Elton Brand this summer, if he's 100% healthy. No J O' Neal thanks, he is good only for my fantasy team...)

bad spell, sorry, I am not THAT ignorant :-)

read it
"a 4 days trip"
"my usual load of BS"
"to answer to your question"

and now that I think about that, maybe J O'Neal isn't good even for my fantasy tea, I should have drafted Jason Smith (LOL)
