Should the Chicago Bulls go for Jamal Crawford or O.J Mayo?

Asked by RafayeSheikh (15 points ) August 17th, 2011

Chicago is in dire need of a shooting guard. All Bulls fans know this. O.J is a 44% shooter from the field and 38% from deep.
Crawford shoots 41% from the field and 35% from deep.
O.J is only 23 years old and will continue to improve over the years. Crawford is 31 years old but is a veteran in the NBA with 11 years of experience. Finally, O.J averaged 11.3 PPG last season as a bench player. Crawford averaged 15.4 PPG as a bench player. O.J Mayo was runner-up for the Rookie of the Year in 2008, while Crawford was named Sixth Man of the Year in 2009–2010. Which guard do you think will bring Chicago another title?

They shouldn’t go for either player. O.J. is a joke and plus, shouldn’t the bulls be worried on how to end the lockout, instead of worring about the rights to players? If they want to have a season at all next year, they need to worry about fixing the lockout, instead of which player to go for. On the other hand, they would benefit better from a 6th man than a guard who is bust. But with Korver in the mix, I don’t think they need either one of them.

Korver is unreliable. While I think he is extremely clutch, he could never be inserted into the starting lineup. What makes O.J a joke?

Oj is not a big preformer, he doesn’t do anything for his Griz, and how can Korver be exremely clutch yet unreliable? That makes no sense. No Korver may not be starting material, but OJ couldn’t replace anyone on the starting lineup for the Bulls, so he would never go to the Bulls if he is going to ride the bench.

Korver is clutch, meaning you bring him out in late game situations. He would never fit the starting rotation because of his lackluster defense and inconsistent jumper.

I know why you don’t bring him in a starting line up. Hence why I said “No Korver may not be starting material…”. All I’m saying is, no one in their right mind should pick OJ or Crawford when it isn’t even certain that there will be a season.
