Bulls trade Derrick Rose to Knicks - here are your keys to the team, Mr. Butler
Derrick Rose has been traded. To the Knicks. Along with Justin Holiday and a 2nd-round pick, in exchange for Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon and Jerian Grant. Like Bullsville on Facebook My first thought when my uncle told me was “I can’t believe they did it”. Then I thought “there’s another GarPax criticism down the tubes”.... Read more »

Derrick Rose for Nerlens Noel... just do it, Gar Forman

Derrick Rose for Nerlens Noel... just do it, Gar Forman
As I pointed out in a recent article, the Bulls really need to move on from the Derrick Rose era. While he feels he is still an All-Star, all of the statistics, both traditional and advanced, show that he is, for the most part, a liability on the floor at this stage of his career.... Read more »

Derrick Rose has to go

Derrick Rose has to go
Derrick Rose has never been known as a competent orator, and Bulls fans rightfully didn’t care. After all, Rose is paid to play basketball, not teach classes on public speaking. But one specific quote that appeared in Sunday’s Chicago Tribune goes a long way toward explaining why the Bulls and Derrick Rose need to part ways... Read more »

    Bullsville

    Don Ellis started covering sports professionally when he was 15. The same year (1980), as a student assistant at Seeger Memorial High School in West Lebanon, IN, he was one of the first in the world to use, study and implement analytics in basketball. He attended Daytona State College and Ball State University, and some of his past credits include InsideHoops (NBA Runaround: The NBA According to Ellis) and ESPN Florida (The Florida Sports Reporters), where he was fortunate enough to work with many rising stars, including NFL Network's Dan Hellie, Redskins coach Jay Gruden, Magic radio and TV personality Dante Marchitelli, and WSB-TV (Atlanta) Sports Director Zach Klein. In addition to running the Bullsville blog and officiating basketball, baseball and football for the KHSAA, he is also a bass player and vocalist who writes and produces music in his spare time (you may remember his internet hit "I Hate Eddy Curry"). He's a 3rd-generation Cubs fan, a Bulls fan since the days of Van Lier and Sloan, and a life-long New England Patriots fan. He's seen Primus 9 times and thinks Les Claypool walks on water. By far his greatest accomplishment is being a father of three and grandfather of one.
