Let The Good Times Roll

Let The Good Times Roll

For the here and now Chicago Sports are the envy of the rest in the United States and it all centers around West Madison Street. The Chicago Blackhawks last night took a commanding 3-0 series lead and appear as though they’re headed to their third straight conference finals. The Chicago Bulls quickly gained home court advantage in their best of […]

This is the return everyone’s been waiting for and Derrick Rose was extremely Derrick Rose like in Game 1 versus the Bucks at the United Center on Saturday. Not only did the Bulls clobber the Bucks, but Derrick Rose shined in the win putting aside all his injury fears by being aggressive and determined in the lane. Roses’s final stats […]

The Bulls…

The Bulls…

…Suck! End of Article. No I’ll get fired if I leave it at that, but in all honesty how did that happen? Rose wouldn’t have prevented the debacle. The Bulls – in a win-or-go-home game – scored a measly 69 points, while constantly being out-rebounded when they were supposed to have a strong advantage in that aspect of the game. […]

In a sport that’s predominantly home-court slanted, these NBA Playoffs of 2014 have seen a massive buck in the trend. The NBA betting lines in Vegas almost always make the home team favored unless the case is severe, but even then the point spread is very much geared towards the home team making a run at some point in the […]

Heat on Thin Ice

When Lebron James showed up in Miami he was given a primetime special to make his decision and even a lights spectacle upon his arrival at American Airlines Arena. Now after two consecutive trips to the NBA Finals, and one championship he and his cast of characters are again facing the prospect of not fulfilling their promise to be 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 […]

On the lookout for a series win

Bulls Even Series at 1-1

The Chicago Bulls managed to do what all road teams want to do in the playoffs – a split. The Bulls played a game that was more their style and grabbe a 90-82 victory in Brooklyn to send the series back to the United Center knotted at 1-1. The 82 points were a testament to the stellar defensive scheme of […]
