An open letter to Scott Skiles,

O.K. Yes, I have seen the light. The Bulls look for real, but how necessary was it to play ALL FIVE STARTERS, or Ben Gordon, your first player off the bench and leading scorer, with a 22 point lead and only 5 minutes left? Saunders had emptied his bench, threw up the white flag. You had Luol Deng diving for loose balls, Andres Nocioni basically spraining his ankle going for a tough rebound, and Ben Gordon driving to the hole to dish to a player to launch a 22 footer at the buzzer so we can win by 17 instead of 15. The fans at the United Center were more excited by their free Big Mac's at that point anyway, and anyone who disputes that last remark need only compare the cheers at the century mark with the cheers at the final buzzer. Were you trying to prove a point? You think maybe that's also what happened when Isiah Thomas went bat shit crazy and had Mardy Collins cripple J.R. Smith's season and Carmelo Anthony's by proxy as well? Enough already, we know your team knows how to close out a big game, but let's not lose our best players because you need to let Flip Saunders know you have no respect for his team.

I didn't get to see the game, I was at work. Glad they won. I can only guess that Skiles was sick of seeing games get lost late. I hope no one gets injuried.

Thanks for reading, Anon.
