Deng-on!

Deng-on!

The Bulls and Cavs are interdivisional rivals and they completed the biggest trade in the NBA this season. The Bulls sent Luol Deng to the Cavs for C Andrew Bynum and three draft picks. While this trade looks like a slam dunk win for the Cavs, the real question is, Why are the Bulls doing this? It seems to be […]

Derrick Rose's MVP says so much about how good this team could be with a balanced attack and Rose driving to the basket

Rose Done For Year Again!

Derrick Rose tore his meniscus during the loss to Portland Friday night. Now the Bulls have lost four in a row after having won their previous six. This whole thing wreaks of Jabari Parker and another team turning its attention to the apparent lottery of superstars. The Bulls are resplendently mediocre at 6-7.  While they’ve showed flashes of winningness before the most recent Rose injury, […]

Bulls Bouncing Back

Bulls Bouncing Back

The Chicago Bulls are rebounding in a nice way after a shaky start to the promising season and have now run their win streak to five games. The Bulls started the season at 1-3, but are now 6-3. Last night Chicago played poorly to beat the lowly Bobcats at the UC 86-81 behind a strong performance from Luol Deng who […]

Bullied

Bullied

Bullying is the hot sports topic.   At first it was hard for me to swallow the possibility that an NFL player could be bullied by a teammate.  Really, a professional player in a violent sport can be bullied?  This kind of undermines the lectures I give to kids about the evils of bullying. Now, I don’t profess to know what’s going on between Joe Philbin, Jeff Ireland […]

Derrick Rose’s Return Disrupted by Blaze

Derrick Rose’s Return Disrupted by Blaze

The hyper-hyped NBA opener between the Miami ring-bearers and Your Chicago Bulls was much ado about nothing other than a stark reminder that the Heat are, in fact, the champs and the Bulls are, also in fact, still a long way from threatening them.  The pre-game ring ceremony was pretty cool as the court was transformed into a large projector screen, but all was anti-climactic once the game started.   […]

Where’s D-Rose Going to Point His Team?

Basketball season’s back and with it a renewed sense of excitement from the United Center that over rely on the Blackhawks. Chicago’s favorite son is back in game shape after taking a year off, and now the Bulls appear ready to give the Miami Heat a run for its money in the top-heavy Eastern Conference. The Bulls’ route to the […]

Bulls Draft Forward Snell at 20

Bulls Draft Forward Snell at 20

The Chicago Bulls really lacked in depth scoring this past year and with the absence of Derrick Rose Bulls’ GM Gar Forman looked to address the situation. He tried his best by adding 6′ 9″ Tony Snell from the University of New Mexico out of the Mountain West Conference. Snell will be considered a role player for Chicago in the […]

Curtain Call in Miami

Curtain Call in Miami

The Chicago Bulls won Game 1 of their highly uneven matchup against the Heat and after that it was all she wrote.  While I’m known to have dissed the Bulls’ post-season chances, I have to say I’m quite proud of these Bulls.  After all, they crossed the line into the playoffs, which was hardly a gimme. They then cleared the Nets […]

Bulls’ Tall Order

Bulls’ Tall Order

If there ever was a must win game when the team who needed to win was up in the series that time would be now. But even if the Bulls were 3-0 I’d still bet on the Heat. No NBA team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit, but if the Heat were faced with those odds I’d bet […]

The Heat Through Rose-Colored Glasses

Derrick Rose will not be playing tonight as the Bulls take on the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the second round.  As of this moment, Rose has not played in a competitive basketball game in 373 days, which is nearly 9 thousand hours.  He has teased us with his pre-game shootarounds, his courtside mentorship, and his convoluted regular status updates.  Bottom line: Rose will not be […]
