David Thorpe prefers Stephen Curry to Rose: Az (Chicago) Are you still standing by your statement that you'd rather have Steph Curry over Derrick Rose? Or would you like to apoligize for making such a ridiculous statement? David Thorpe (12:42 PM) I'd still choose Curry, call me whatever you want. But I'd rather have Rose with the game on the line in an iso.

Thorpe says Holiday should model his game after Deron Williams

114
"At the pre-draft camp in Chicago last year, I received a number of texts from NBA scouts and executives (and one from Chad Ford) that all said basically this: Holiday looked like a power forward when all the point guards were put together. And he was still 18 years old at the time. Now that he's starting for the Sixers, we see Holiday's frame and strength do give him advantages at his position. However, he's far from being ready to use those advantages like a hammer the way Williams does." -- David Thorpe

"Too often, most of Rose's energy is sapped by what he has to do on offense, so there isn't enough left in the tank to use on defense. For Rose to be able to compete better on defense, he has to lighten his load on offense. For instance, maybe he can pass the ball outside more (which requires less energy) instead of forcing shots on drives in traffic (which require great energy)."

Credit Tyrus' good game last night to David Thorpe

Tom (Chicago): Coach, I saw you at the Bulls game last night, and then Tyrus has his best game of the year. What did you say to him? David Thorpe: (12:09 PM ET ) We had dinner the night before and just discussed being energetic and competitive. Playing with passion is requisite for him to be good. He did last night, and has for 5 straight games. But this is still something that has to be done for a lot longer before the Bulls are ready to hug him and be proud of their drafting decision.
