Off and Running

Off and Running

The Bulls 2014- 2015 season has got off to a tremendous start, and unlike the football team here in Chicago, the expectations for them appear to be within reach. The Bulls won again last night without Derrick Rose for much of the night. Rose played only 31 minutes in Milwaukee, the least of any starter on the team. The Bulls […]

Fallen Chips

Fallen Chips

The dust has seemed to settle somewhat in the NBA Free Agency stampede and what has resulted is a minor consolation prize for the once optimistic Bulls. Melo’ has returned to New York as widely expected, Lebron returned to Cleveland and the Bulls got another piece to add to their already stacked front court presence. Over the weekend the Bulls […]

Brow Wow!

Brow Wow!

Chicago’s Anthony Davis poured in 40 points and hauled in 21 rebounds on way to the Pelicans one-point overtime win over the Boston Celtics. Davis, who’s nicknamed the “Brow” for his patented unibrow, was an all-everything at Perspective Charter and would go on to be the top-rated player in the United States before deciding to attend the University of Kentucky […]

Over in a Snap

Over in a Snap

The Super Bowl ended on the first play from scrimmage when Peyton Manning watched the snap sail over his head, resulting in a safety and a 2-0 lead for Seattle at the 12-second mark. The next thing I knew it was 29-0 at the half. After that…well, who cares really other than to conclude the obvious and crown the champ. […]

Rose to Represent America!?

Rose to Represent America!?

It’s been reported that D-Rose wants to play for the USA in this summer’s World Championships in Spain. The FIBA 2014 World Cup is played like soccer’s World Cup in Brazil, where national teams search for gold and glory much like the Olympics, only it’s the FIBA World Cup. I have so many issues with this report that it’s almost […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
