    Gives Amir some of that practice time that the coach is requiring before he can get on the floor.

    Amir's absence in recent games is because of an injury. If he is going to be an important piece to the team, why rush him back?

    Amir played against Orlando. He looked fine, just a little unprepared for NBA tempo action.

    I read that he had some swelling and soreness after the Orlando game. When healthy, i think Amir is NBA-ready for major minutes. I've got an AHOF membership card. I'd like to see him getting 15-20 mpg. I'd hate to see a setback because he was rushed back into action, though.

    He sprained an ankle in the pre-season against the Bucks. Maybe he has been playing through it and it hasn't healed yet.

    He's been terrible, so I hope that it is because of the ankle.

    Ben is averaging 3.7 rebounds in 30 minutes of PT. Tyrus Thomas is getting 8 rebs in the same about of time.

    Ben is shooting 36% from the floor and 38% from the line.


    He has 3 defensive rebounds in 90 minutes this year! Mugsy Bogues could do that.

    i know this is the chicago thread, but the atlanta game was not the right one to put him in. now he'll have a full 4-5 days of rest for that ankle before the chicago game.

    Ben's injury sounds like it could be worse than just a sprain:

    So now if Pistons win everyone will say that it doesn't count because Ben is injured.

    Just thought I'd look into getting tickets for this game. $275 is the cheapest seat in the lower section. About $170 for the upper deck. And at least $50 for the seats in the rafters.

    I was hoping the prices would be down due to the Bulls slow start. If this were Kobe's first game in Chi, I wonder what the prices would be.

    I like going to games, but $170-$275 for a regular season game seems way too steep. $50 seems like a lot too, compared to watching on TV for free.

    It makes you wonder who is paying that kind of money to see those games. I thought it was bad when I went to a preseason Pistons game and they were selling beers for $8.50...but then I looked around and a bunch of people were buying them. But the people who will buy Ben Wallace's cheap shoes probably won't go to many games.

    I guess I can consider myself lucky paying $55 for 2 Warriors/Pistons tickets for the 1st row in the upper bowl.

    I heard a stat the other day that there are 70,000 millionaires in Seattle (I may have heard that from the Sonics announcer). Since Chicago is so much bigger, I would assume that the number is probably closer to 150,000 here.

    I'm not saying the Bulls shouldn't be charging high prices, but I'm just amazed that they can get it.

    Golf course prices are similarly inflated here. A $50 course in Michigan is easily $100 in Chicago... and you have to drive pretty far to get to them. And the courses are packed, so the rates are justified.

    The papers out here report that stat frequently. That's quite a few millionaires for a city with just over half a million people.

    Of course, Sonics games are 15 bucks for the bleacher seats, and the arena is pretty small.

    tashawn, we went to chicago a couple years ago when hinrich and those guys were rookies, and the tickets were nowhere near that high, although they were still pretty expensive for a lottery team

    They were pretty unpopular for a few years. That is when they were playing the "through thick and thin" commercials and calling them the baby bulls.

    Everyone I talk to here says that living in Chicago through the Jordan years was pretty crazy. The United Center was THE place to be.
