Derrick Rose says he has fixed his shot in advance of Slovenia game
Derrick Rose has shot the ball about as well as my 6-year-old daughter in Team USA’s first six games of the FIBA World Cup of Basketball in Spain. But according to ESPN’s Marc Stein Derrick Rose is vowing to break out of his shooting slump Tuesday when Team USA meets Slovenia in the quarterfinals of... Read more »

5 reasons the Bulls still have a chance

5 reasons the Bulls still have a chance
I’m pretty sure the overwhelming majority of Bulls fans have already written off their series against the Wizards, and if you’ve watched the first two games, it’s pretty hard to argue with them. The Bulls defense has been atrocious, and late in games, their offense has been downright offensive. But I’m an optimist at heart,... Read more »

Bulls vs Wizards series preview

Bulls vs Wizards series preview
Game 1 Tickets It’s almost hard to believe I am writing this Bulls playoff preview- first Derrick Rose tears his meniscus, and he’s out for the season. Then Luol Deng gets traded for nothing other than draft picks on January 6, and a very vocal majority of Bulls fans were calling for the team to... Read more »

Stupid, idiot, moron Bulls fans, and Bulls vs Cavs tonight

Stupid, idiot, moron Bulls fans, and Bulls vs Cavs tonight
I want to start this off with a really, really stupid comment made by a Bulls fan. This is courtesy of the RealGM.com message boards- formerly the no-doubt best Bulls board on the internet, but over the last few years taken over by idiots who don’t understand basketball and who can’t get simple facts straight. The... Read more »

What I would tell Don Ellis in 1993

So this is the “give someone advice” Blogapalooz-hour? Giving myself advice 20 years ago is so easy, I figured I’d make a contest out of it and do it in 20 minutes, just to give everyone else a chance. I don’t say that with my normal huge ego, it’s just that I fucked up so much when I was... Read more »

Bulls at Sixers Game 4: Time to earn a paycheck?

Bulls at Sixers Game 4: Time to earn a paycheck?
We all know who the highest paid players on the Bulls roster are. One is the MVP. One is the starting center, the one guy who really stepped it up in Games 2 and 3 in the MVP’s absence. The other two are the starting forwards, an All-Star and a former All-Star. Between them, their... Read more »

Bulls vs Sixers Game 3: Defense, rebounding are the keys, but Deng needs to step up

Bulls vs Sixers Game 3: Defense, rebounding are the keys, but Deng needs to step up
Forget Derrick Rose, the Bulls could have had Jordan and Pippen and Rodman and Kukoc and Kerr and they don’t win games giving up 59% shooting and getting outrebounded in playoff games. CJ and JL3 did a great job of replacing Rose’s production, combining for 27 points and 7 assists with two turnovers, shooting 11/23... Read more »
