Carlos Boozer Accepts Mediocrity but You Shouldn't Have to Also

Carlos Boozer Accepts Mediocrity but You Shouldn't Have to Also
About a few days ago, one of my good friends forwarded me a blog post Sam Smith wrote about Carlos Boozer,  suggesting Bulls fans may be expecting too much from him, where Carlos Boozer would be a double-double guy, only if he was given more minutes. As of late, Carlos Boozer sympathizers have been defending the... Read more »

From Doubted to Irreplaceable - Deng Vowing to Play through Injury Adds Another Chapter To His Worth

From Doubted to Irreplaceable - Deng Vowing to Play through Injury Adds Another Chapter To His Worth
I’m sure there was a time Luol Deng thought he couldn’t succeed here in Chicago. It could have been in 2007 where fans were pleading to Kobe Bryant to forget about playing with Luol Deng, let him go to Los Angeles, and play here in Chicago.  It could have also been in 2009 where the... Read more »

Derrick Rose Should Not Participate in the 2012 Olympics

Derrick Rose Should Not Participate in the 2012 Olympics
We had “the thumb” in November and now, we have “the toe” in January. Very much like Jay Cutler’s fractured thumb he sustained when he was chasing a defensive back to prevent a touchdown, Derrick Rose’s left, big toe is taking the sports media in Chicago by storm, conducting debate after debate on the timetable...

Quick Hits: Bulls Almost Give All of 20 Point Lead, But Wins 88-79

Quick Hits: Bulls Almost Give All of 20 Point Lead, But Wins 88-79
The Bulls came into Boston tonight and gave Tom Thibodeau his first win versus his old club. Very similar to Tuesday night’s win versus Minnesota where the Bulls gave up a big lead and then grinded it out to win the game. In another nationally televised game, I’m not going to dwell on the lost... Read more »

Quick Hits: Deng Carries Bulls to Victory 111-100
Tonight’s matchup vs the T’Wolves was hyped as Derrick Rose vs. Ricky Rubio. The 21 year old from Spain has sparked excitement to the league and the city of Minneapolis and tonight was no different. What started to be a rout being down by 24 to the Bulls, the Wolves came back mid-way through the... Read more »

This GM Search Feels Like 2010 All Over Again

This GM Search Feels Like 2010 All Over Again
Let’s take a walk down memory lane… It’s January 2010 and Jay Cutler just finished an abomidable 1st year as the Chicago Bears signal caller prompting the immediate firing of then Offensive Coordinator Ron Turner. With an extremely talented franchise QB in Jay Cutler, an up and coming RB in Matt Forte and a chance... Read more »

Hello all, back again from a nice weekend. Well the Bulls start the 1st game of their 1st back-to-back-to-back of the season, 1st game of 5 in 6 days. Just by looking at the number of games, it looks pretty tough but the Bulls were pretty lucky as Boston’s the only .500 team at 4-4. Tonight,... Read more »

    Q

    Born in the mean streets of Oak Park but raised in the Northwest Suburbs of Addison. I've been fortunate enough to meet the likes of Derrick Rose, Brian Urlacher, and Devin Hester to say they're world class athletes but also exceptional people. "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." - Michael Jordan
