Bulls Don't Care, Why Should We?

Wade as a Recruiting Tool Doesn't Pass the Sniff Test

I Tweeted this monring that the signing of Dwyane Wade reminded me of when the White Sox acquired Ken Griffey, Jr., or when the Blackhawks got Bobby Orr. Great players, but coming to our town far too late. And while Wade may have a bit more left in the tank that those guys did at... Read more »
