Stan Van Gundy Raises Scary, Yet Legitimate Question About Rose's Future

Stan Van Gundy Raises Scary, Yet Legitimate Question About Rose's Future
The outspoken and recently fired Orlando Magic coach went on AM 740 “The Game” in Orlando yesterday and raised a very scary thought into Chicago Bulls fans’ minds. Will Derrick Rose go “LeBron” on us and join forces with superstar players to win a championship like James did in 2010? Or when Carmelo Anthony left... Read more »

Rose's All Access Coverage Relieves Bulls Fans' Angst

Rose's All Access Coverage Relieves Bulls Fans' Angst
Derrick Rose is a fairly guarded individual.  He has been since he played High School basketball at Simeon. Rose’s guarded nature evolved from a rather mediocre interviewee since his rookie year to an engaging, articulate individual who shows signs of being capable to become the face of the NBA. Most recently, Rose peeled another layer... Read more »

The Bulls and Heat Had Eerily Similar Games In Back-to-Back Nights

The Bulls and Heat Had Eerily Similar Games In Back-to-Back Nights
Call it whatever you’d like. Lackluster, disinterested, or maybe relentless, these types of adjectives could summarize the Bulls’ and Heat’s play in the past 24 hours. As lucky as I was last evening to have an opportunity to watch the Heat’s 99-95 win versus a very hot Phoenix Suns team, I was luckier to watch... Read more »

My Response to a Fellow ChicagoNow Writer: Derrick Rose and Jeremy Lin are Both Good Role Models No More, No Less

My Response to a Fellow ChicagoNow Writer: Derrick Rose and Jeremy Lin are Both Good Role Models No More, No Less
One of the things I love about ChicagoNow is how it provides a forum of well-articulated people to profess their thoughts and opinions. A great article from this website, which made the front page of the ChicagoTribune.com website is done by Chicago Chivalry. If you haven’t read @gwillchi’s article yet, please do so before you...

Thibs Will be the East Head Coach, Don't Expect Luol Deng to be Nominated, and David Stern Gives Chicago the Shaft - Quick Hits: 2012 All-Star Game Edition

Thibs Will be the East Head Coach, Don't Expect Luol Deng to be Nominated, and David Stern Gives Chicago the Shaft - Quick Hits: 2012 All-Star Game Edition
What’s up world. I apologize for the lack of posts, especially from the Bulls-end as of late however it’s difficult to give great insight when the Bulls are playing arguably, the three worst teams in the league. I know the distribution of playing time Tom Thibodeau has given is a hot button issue as of... Read more »

If the Bulls Refer to History, Expect a Huge Run For Dwight Howard

If the Bulls Refer to History, Expect a Huge Run For Dwight Howard
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” – George Santayana Republican vs. Democrat. Pro-life vs. Pro-choice. Cubs vs. White Sox. You can’t be in the middle, you gotta pick one, and you better be ready to defend your choice. While two of the three mentioned above are more serious discussions and... Read more »

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 Demolish Suns 118-97; Rose Injury Update

Quick Hits: Bulls Demolish Suns 118-97; Rose Injury Update
Back again with the Quick Hits after a 3 game absence. After a thrashing in Memphis, the Bulls dominated and everyone who wore a Bulls jersey was on fire. The Bulls are entering a much needed two days rest after playing 7 games in 9 days. No one needs the rest more than Derrick Rose who... 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
