Has Jimmy Butler become LeBron?

Has Jimmy Butler become LeBron?
I know a lot of folks are going to freak out, but the one thing I noticed in this lost Bulls season is that if you take away Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler morphs into LeBron James. I understand that many Bulls fans still believe that Derrick Rose can return to his MVP form, but it... Read more »

Rose was incredibly efficient, scoring his 30 on 12/18 from the field, including 4/5 from behind the arc. ESPN and ABC NBA analysts... Read more »

Deng, Teague lead Bulls past Heat

Deng, Teague lead Bulls past Heat
No tank for you!! That was certainly the message the Bulls sent on TNT Thursday night, thoroughly dominating the final 47 minutes of a 107-87 win over the Miami Heat. LeBron James came out looking to send a message, taking a rebound all the way for a layup and then grabbing a steal and going all... Read more »

Hey Kobe: Forget the Dream Team, 2012 Team USA couldn't beat the 1996 Bulls

Hey Kobe: Forget the Dream Team, 2012 Team USA couldn't beat the 1996 Bulls
Forget about the Dream Team Kobe, your current squad couldn’t beat the greatest TEAM ever, the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. First of all, the ’96 Bulls’ offensive team was unstoppable- with three-point shooting from Kerr (52%), Jordan (43%), Kukoc (40%) and Pippen (37%) with Rodman to chase down the misses? The two greatest point forwards of... Read more »

Rose is done for the playoffs- are the Bulls?

Rose is done for the playoffs- are the Bulls?
No, they aren’t. Can they still win an NBA championship this spring? Almost certainly not. Can they still win this series against the Sixers? I fully expect them to. Can they still beat either Atlanta or (most likely) Boston in the next round? Yes, they can. Can they still beat the Heat and get to... 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.
