I don't want to be the Chicago Bulls

Remember the baby bulls?  Youngest team in NBA history.  Yea they sucked, 21-61.  But ended up giving up on some good young players like Tyson Chandler, Brad Miller, Ron Artest, and Elton Brand.  Now the current version of the Chicago Bulls is the opposite spectrum, holding out on the hopes for their young draft picks to mature.  Ben Gordon, Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich, and Andres Noicioni.

Paxson refused to trade their young players hoping they would improve and mature their games together.  Now look at the the Bulls team, not quite good enough to be a contender and not quite bad enough to blow it all up.

I'm not advocating blowing up the team while we're going through a tough stretch.  But I hope that Pritchard is mindful of the lessons from the Bulls.

Evaluating a young team is one of the difficult things to do.  Especially this season since I like the chemistry between the players and the hard working culture.  When is the right time to give up on a young player and move on?  Which players need to step up and which players should be given more leeway?
