Butler is in Florida, visiting world-renowned orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on his sore left knee.

Paying the NBA luxury tax for a winner- the truth behind the myth

Paying the NBA luxury tax for a winner- the truth behind the myth
I guess to the untrained eye, it makes sense that the team that spends the most money on players and pays the NBA luxury tax will have the best team. After all, the best players make the most money, so if your team spends the most money, they should have more good players, right? Wrong.... Read more »

With Derrick Rose injured, why the Bulls should (and will) tank the 2012-13 NBA season

With Derrick Rose injured, why the Bulls should (and will) tank the 2012-13 NBA season
Much like the Bulls’ 2012 playoffs, their 2012-13 season basically went up in smoke when Derrick Rose tore his ACL in the first game of the post-season. Because of the timing of Rose’s injury, the Bulls lost two season’s worth of competing for a championship with the current roster. It’s nice to dream that Derrick... 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.
