Duhon Oversleeps, Misses Practice

Chicago Bulls point guard Chris Duhon missed a Sunday morning shootaround. The Bulls are expected to fine Duhon for his actions.

This is the second such incident for Duhon while with Chicago. On January 15, 2007, the Bulls suspended Duhon one game for missing a practice. "I overslept and just got to deal with the consequences," Duhon said in 2007. "The team expects you to be there and you are not there, so you have to man up and take full responsibility of it and make sure it doesn't happen again." Sure enough, he failed in making sure it did not happen again.

Duhon attended the Duke-North Carolina game, played in Durham, North Carolina, with former Blue Devil Jay Williams on Saturday night. He then hopped on a plane and flew back to Detroit for the game. Subsequently, Duhon overslept, missing the team bus for the practice.

This is the second time this week a Bulls player missed a team function. Tyrus Thomas finished serving his two-game suspension on Friday night for missing a practice and is expected to dress for Sunday night's game against the Pistons. According to K.C. Johnson, it is being viewed as unintentional, unlike Thomas' situation.

Duhon, the well known party goer, has seen his playing time decrease dramatically since the acquisition of guard Larry Hughes. Yes, that should be viewed as an accurate indication of Duhon's basketball ability.


About the Undrafted Free Agent

Ron Crimson was the only player on the high school roster to not get in a game. He couldn't argue with the decision, because he sucked. Needless to say, yet stated anyway, when he entered the NBA draft following his sophomore season in college, he went undrafted. Now, Ron Crimson is the Undrafted Free Agent.

There's nothing here; I just needed to fill some space. Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! Space eater! I also needed to balance it out a bit.
