Remember when the Bulls thought they came out on top in this one? Sure, Ben Wallace may not exactly be what he once was, but hey… Via By The Horns’ Matt McHale:
There are certain things in life you can’t wait to be rid of. In-laws. The flu. Hangovers (also known as flu-like symptoms). The nasty “rash” you “picked up” during your freshman year of college. For the Bulls and their fans, Larry Hughes is that rash. He’s already dropped rock-like out of Vinny Del Negro’s rotation, and, frankly, it says something about Hughes’ character that Jud Buechler could average 10 minutes per game for a 72-win Bulls team and yet ”Big Shot Larry” is riding the pine for a Chicago squad destined for around 35 wins and another trip to the NBA draft lottery. […]
Not surprisingly, there isn’t exactly a healthy market for delusional shooting guards who are best known for taking too many bad shots while earning a cap-killing salary.
There are rumors that the Nets may have an interest in Hughes’ “services.” I know that some Wizards fans wouldn’t mind having him back, though I’m not too sure why. Perhaps it is a bit of “those were the days” type stuff? I’m not sure. I’ll let Craig take it from here. He’s usually full of wonderful Hughes-based thought.
