However, how did the Bulls take Sefalosha over Roy?  Thabo was the 13th pick and Roy was the 5th  :ponder:

i was confused about that one as well  :icon_biggrin:

I'm sorry, Ishould have said Tyrus Thomas over Aldridge and Roy. Roy is turning into a superstar.

Yeah that was a pretty dumb azz move. Here are a few others by the Bulls.

1) Bulls waived Artis Gilmore on Christmas Eve in 1987
2) Traded Reggie Theus
3) Steve Johnson in 1984
4) Fired head coach Jerry Sloan in 1982
5) Traded Nate Thurmond to Cleveland in 1975

I hear lots of complaints in the media and talk shows about Kenny Williams, but he hasn't received a vote. this must mean we are much more unhappy with the other GM's here.
Still crazy

At least Kenny tries. I get the distinct feeling with Williams, as opposed to several others on this list, that he's not happy to just be there, at the playoffs/ championship game/ division title/ wild card/, he has to win it all. And while he may make the occassional bonehead trade, like getting Todd Ritchie for three of your best pitching prospects at the time, he's not all wrapped up in potential. He is willing to give equal value to get a trade done, and he doesn't overvalue his players, ala Aaron Rowand.
