Jimmy Butler injury to keep him off USA National Team practice roster

A few tweets have come out in the last few minutes relating to the latest Jimmy Butler injury: Jimmy Butler Injury... Read more »

Johnson reported that Jimmy Butler has been added to the U.S. Select team that will practice against the Men’s National Team starting July 28. Jimmy Butler joins Doug McDermott on U.S. Select team that will practice against national team next week in... Read more »

Arron Afflalo Bulls SG target? He should be

Arron Afflalo Bulls SG target? He should be
The Arron Afflalo Bulls era is possibly less than a month from beginning. Afflalo is an absolute perfect fit for the Bulls, for several reasons: At 6’5″, 215 pounds, he has good size for a shooting guard He is an outstanding 3-point shooter (over the last six seasons, he has shot .402, .434, .423, .398,...

Melo as a free agent AND trade for Love? Bulls can do it

Melo as a free agent AND trade for Love? Bulls can do it
Can the Bulls sign Carmelo Anthony as a free agent (without a sign and trade) and then have enough assets left to trade for Kevin Love? A reader sent me that question (kudos to Jay Sparkz), but when he asked, it was with the attached condition that Melo sign for the same salary as Derrick... Read more »

Wizards 98, Bulls 89- Bulls refuse to score, Thibs refuses to adjust

Wizards 98, Bulls 89- Bulls refuse to score, Thibs refuses to adjust
At this point, I am not sure what Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is waiting for. Hinrich can’t make a shot, Augustin is afraid to shoot a 3, and Butler refuses to drive strong to the basket, preferring to keep firing away from behind the arc. He has one of the best shooters in the world-... Read more »

Nene suspended for Game 4, Bulls must win this one

Nene suspended for Game 4, Bulls must win this one
The NBA announced that Wizards’ forward Maybyner Rodney Hilario (commonly known as Nene) has been suspended for Game 4 of the Bulls/Wizards Eastern Conference 1st-round playoff series. Nene was ejected with 8:28 left in Game 3 for head-butting and grabbing the neck of Jimmy Butler. I’m not sure which is bigger- the fact that Mr.... Read more »

Bulls 100, Wizards 97- Dunleavy saves the season, Bulls win in spite of Thibs

Bulls 100, Wizards 97- Dunleavy saves the season, Bulls win in spite of Thibs
Box Score Just for the record, I started writing this with 1:35 left in the 4th quarter, and Taj Gibson shooting the 2nd of two free throws (after he missed the first) to tie the game, so I’m not sure the Bulls lost this game yet. But even if they wind up winning, I’m officially... 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 Game 1 recap- Thibs blows it

Bulls vs Wizards Game 1 recap- Thibs blows it
Box Score It’s not often you’ll hear me say this about Tom Thibodeau, who is the second best coach in the NBA behind Gregg Popovich. But his refusal to take DJ Augustin out of Game 1 in the 4th quarter was the Bulls’ downfall as they lost home court advantage in a 102-93 Washington victory.... Read more »
