Keith Bogans may not be a fan favorite, but he's starting for a reason

Breaking Down The Bulls: Keith Bogans

Ahhh, Keith Bogans….yup.

As much as I rag on Bogans and dawn the nickname Bogus Bogans on him, he is nevertheless more of a contributor to the team than me. He may not always hit the right shots, or play defense the way he is suppose to, or look like a player who has the experience he has, but he is the starting Shooting Guard for the Bulls for some reason.

That reason, I’m not sure.

Kyle Korver or Ronnie Brewer are far more qualified to fill the starting role, but Tom Thibodeau must see something in Bogans that none of us do.

And if the Bulls were as down on Bogans as the fan base and writers are, then they would have bent over backwards to make a deal at the deadline to replace him. Instead they merely added Rasual Butler who poses no real threat to take the starting job from Bogans.

Bogans is scoring just 4.3 ppg, but again, Tom Thibodeau is using him in his defensive schemes and if it’s working and it ain’t overall as a whole broke, then why fix it?
