Well John Paxson and the Bulls organization proved they were willing to open their pockets to help this team move to the head of the pack and they sure did so by signing Big Ben Wallace from the Pistons.

Deal is supposed to be worth around 60 mil over 4 years

IMO the Bulls are now contenders for the Championship. They have there superstar in Big Ben now, a great backcourt in Hinrich and Deng, and solid frontcourt with Nocioni, Deng, Tyrus Thomas, PJ Brown and Big Ben bringing up the rear. Depth is also solid
I don't see the Pacers as challengers, the Pistons are now a mess, and who's going to help Lebron? Bulls are the most well rounded team in the East and are out to prove that hopefully 06-07 is there "year"

Now that Big Ben is in place, the Bulls are on the verge of trading Chandler for PJ Brown (Bulls desperately need a PF...plus he's in the mold of Antonio Davis, who really helped the bulls tremendously)-

On a one sour note, our mascot, Benny the Bull was up to no good Sunday night-

In any case, the 4th of July is a great day for Bulls and Chicago sports fans to celebrate and have a big smile on their face (as I do now as I'm writing this)

Let's go Bulls!!

The Bulls better win the title in the next two years, because Wade, LeBron, and Dwight Howard are gonna dominate all in a couple years.

This column puts a lot of things in perspective.

Wow. I am shocked by the Ben Wallace announcement. I still won't believe it until he actually signs. As one radio station put it, 'he was the face of the Detroit Pistons organization'. A shocker...and a steal for the Bulls.

Pistons are set to replace Big Ben with Nazr Mohammamed, not exactly the person I had in mind. Im still waiting for Dumars to to do something big.

The Pistons don't have a lot of cap room. They basically can't spend any money on free agents. The reason they could offer Big Ben a huge deal is because he was their own free agent. (I think this is called the 'Larry Bird rule'.) So basically, they're screwed in terms of free agents (as one sportscaster put it).

The Bulls added a premier player to their team, but they paid way too much for him. I am glad to see him leave Detroit though...

i love big ben, and he plays harder than any player in the nba.but he was exposed big time in the playoffs.the heat took the ball right at him time and time again.he is a superb off the ball defender but one on one he is iffy.tayshaun prince was the best defender on the pistons.if the bulls get into a freethrow situation in the playoffs better hope ben isent at the line.....

traderlots: u have to remember he's only 6ft 9in and doesn't weigh a hole lot playing against big guys in the east and west of course he's gonna get banged up plus that the style of play the pistons like to run slow defensive game...if u play a slow game your gonna get more half court play which is more man to man inside scoring and constant battle down low...
