Individually it’s easy to defend the choices the Chicago Bulls made this summer. While he’s a shadow of his old self and overpaid, Rajon Rondo may have been the best point guard on the market when they signed him. When a star like Dwyane Wade falls in your lap, you take advantage. But when you step back there seems to be no overall plan in Chicago.
Which is why it shouldn’t be a shock that Wade, Rondo, and Jimmy Butler are having a public argument. Of course, on Friday everyone played the row down, but nobody said they had any regrets either. This is a mess, and it all goes back to the big picture — or lack thereof — in Chicago.
I talk about all of this and the likely fallout in this latest PBT Extra.
