    No more free agent frenzy. No more preseason games. Time for the real thing.

    The Bulls dominate this year!!!!!

    Not so sure about the bulls dominating with a center who doesn't score, but it should be a good year.

    If Shaq and Zo have gas left in the tank, I don't see why there wouldn't be a repeat. The central division in the east is a beast though. There could be some suprises along the way...

    Bullish market: Chicago signs Hinrich to extension
    ESPN.com news services

    It wasn't too long ago that free agents only stopped in Chicago to catch connecting flights to other, more competitive cities. How things have changed.

    After landing the marquee free agent of the offseason in Ben Wallace, the Bulls have convinced point guard Kirk Hinrich to sign a long-term extension -- and for a hometown discount.

    The Chicago Tribune cited league sources on Tuesday saying that the Kansas product has agreed to a five-year deal worth $47.5 million. The extension kicks in for the 2007-08 season and escalates from approximately $7.8 million in the first year to $11.42 million in the last.

    "Kirk Hinrich is imperative to the foundation of our organization and we are extremely pleased to have him with us long term," Bulls executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said. "We are attempting to build a team based on character and commitment and these are both traits that Kirk possesses at a very high level. This is a very good day for the Chicago Bulls organization."

    In his third season in the league last year, Hinrich averaged 15.9 points and 6.3 assists and established himself as one of the top defensive guards in the league. He was a somewhat surprise edition to the U.S. National team that played in this summer's FIBA World Championship.

    Hinrich and his representatives had been asking for money similar to the six-year, $66 million deal Tony Parker signed with the Spurs on the eve of the 2004-05 season, but a look around the league revealed that not many teams could fit him under the salary cap for that kind of money.

    The Tribune reported that Hinrich and Paxson recently had a private meeting where it is thought that the former Bulls guard convinced his current one that he could be part of something big in Chicago.

    As it turns out, money wasn't such a sticking point.

    "I'm comfortable financially right now," Hinrich told the Tribune recently. "I don't spend a lot. ... And when you're talking numbers like we're talking, it's almost surreal."

    Several reasons have been mentioned, I'll run through a few, and if anyone else knows more or whatever, chime in...

    He changed because this is a 'new beginning', or a 'fresh start' for him. I guess he realizes he is closer to the end that the beginning, and since he has cleaned up his image, put the Shaq stuff behind him, and is on an entirely different team expected to make noise, it was a chance for him to show that physically (and numerically)

    As far as why 24? Because it was his first high school number. He has also mentioned in interviews that one of his favorite shows is 24, so people have been running with the Jack Bauer parallels...
