08:52 AM ET 11.22 | Where has Rip Hamilton gone? At first, it seemed like a byproduct of last season's injury-plagued campaign. Now, with the Bulls struggling and not executing in close, late-game situations, the fact that [Hamilton] has been nailed to the bench just seems odd. Sure, in Wednesday night's loss to Houston, Hamilton only shot 2-for-10 from the floor, making it somewhat justifiable that he didn't see any fourth-quarter action. ... But when coupled with the fact that after he went 7-for-10 in another narrow defeat at Portland, the team's previous loss in their current three-game skid, it's more puzzling. "You're going with the group that's playing well at that particular time. It's not about individuals, it's about the team," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau explained.

The bulls roster is a mystery.
Rose won't lead the bulls to a seventh title with the likes of Nazr, Bellenelli and Boozer!

Wake me when Rose is back in action, otherwise this is a snoozer of a team; Kirk Hinrich - you can't be serious?!?
