The Chicago Bulls of 2001-2002: Will they come back?

The team, being 9-33 or .195 or so, is the absolute worst team in the entire league. Will they have a chance to rack up some wins in the second half of the season?

Considering that some of their players, namely Ron Artest, are not that bad, many would say 'possibly'. But the future does not look very bright for the Bulls. They are also getting problems from a guy we know from Toronto, Charles Oakley. With five players averaging over 10 points a game, the Bulls would normally be playing a little better. I'm guessing there's a problem, but what?

I think they need to keep losing so they can have a shot @ getting the No. 1 pick in the lottery, that way they can get Duke's Jason Williams.

Chicago Bulls 2002-2003
PG - Jason Williams
SG - Ron Artest
C - Tyson Chandler
F - Ron Mercer
F - Charles Oakley

Bench - Guyton, Fizer, Curry, Robinson

Not a bad team. Could be a really good team in a few years.

That's not a very good strategy.
Some of the players will want to leave and will be demoralized. Losing to get a first pick won't work. Besides, if they lose, they'll be too poor to sign anyone from the rest of the league.

They have to make sure that they get a nice draft pick though. However, they also may need to get a veteran player, because most of their team are high schoolers are rookies.

Um... that was a little sarcasim, but serously, it would be good for them to get a top 3 pick.
