Don't Miss This
(WSCR) Today we meet Bob from Highland.
Bob called into The Boers and Bernstein Show to voice his displeasure with the Bulls’ decision to sign veteran point guard Mike James to his second 10-day contract with the team.
With injuries to Derrick Rose and C.J. Watson, the Bulls have had no choice but to look outside the team for a fourth-string point guard.
“Aren’t there other options out there besides Mike James?” Bob asked. “I think he’s too old for the position.”
You see, in three games since signing his second 10-day contract with Chicago, James has averages 10.3 points and 4.3 assists — not bad for your fourth-string, 36-year-old point guard.
This question sparked an immediate reaction from co-host Dan Bernstein who responded with this: “He’s a fourth-string point guard! The acquisiton of Mike James was out of pure need. The injury to Derrick and the injury to C.J. Watson — they needed another point guard. … Who would you rather have as a backup point guard than a veteran who has stepped up and player terrific for you? … What in God’s name are you expecting from a call-up as a fill in?”
