Bill Simmons- Memphis Grizzlies want Thibodeau, more BS on Thibs (pun intended)

Bill Simmons- Memphis Grizzlies want Thibodeau, more BS on Thibs (pun intended)
I’m a fan of Bill Simmons, he is fairly entertaining on ABC’s NBA pre-game show. But his obsession with Tom Thibodeau leaving the Bulls is getting old already. I’m not sure exactly when it started, but it was no later than December 13, 2013, when he wrote on his website: Most Interesting Subplot: You mean, other... Read more »

Chicago Bulls fans, forget Aldridge, forget Love, forget Gasol, KEEP DENG!!
Have you forgotten about that Mirotic guy they are sorta sweet to? You remember, the guy they drafted in the FIRST ROUND in 2011?

    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.
