I know you had a reputation as a flopper. Have you seen any effects of the league's crackdown on flopping?

I haven't seen it at all, but again you're talking to someone who made a career out of it. I'm not necessarily calling it flopping, I'm calling it selling. I sold plays. Now if the official is in the right position and missed it, that's not my problem. Looking at the videotape that the league sent out that showed some of the flopping, I haven't seen it the first week of the games. Obviously guys know what the fines are and they're going to be good at masking things.

What do you expect from the Bulls?

(Coach) Tom Thibodeau has some interesting decisions to make this season with Derrick Rose out until the end of February. Can his teams find ways to score enough points to win? I know how coach Thibodeau attacks defensively that they will be in most games. In past years in close games, what they had at the end of the day was to throw the ball to Derrick Rose and he could go make a play. There is no one on this team who can go make their own play. Can they stay afloat with their defensive effort?
