It's official - Bulls own the Raptors

It's official - Bulls own the Raptors
While I haven’t been able to confirm whether it’s a cash deal or if they took out a mortgage, the Bulls now officially own the Toronto Raptors. Playing without Pau Gasol (knee), Mike Dunleavy (stomach virus) and Derrick Rose (who keeps track after all these years), the Bulls were still able to go north of... Read more »

Derrick Rose burns last bridge in Bulls 100-93 win in Toronto

Derrick Rose burns last bridge in Bulls 100-93 win in Toronto
Derrick Rose played in back-to-back games for the first time this season as the Bulls went into Toronto and overcame a horrible defensive first half to leave Canada with a 100-93 win over the Raptors Thursday night. I saved it for the second paragraph, but the entire world knows that the story of the night... Read more »

Bulls vs Cavaliers Halloween game draws huge ratings for ESPN

Bulls vs Cavaliers Halloween game draws huge ratings for ESPN
While all Bulls fans knew that the Bulls vs Cavaliers game last Friday was about as big a game as you can possibly have in the first week of the season, the game’s television ratings show that the rest of the country apparently though it was a big deal as well. ESPN’s telecast of the... Read more »

2014 NBA Playoffs 1st round predictions
As I type this, we are about 6 hours from the start of the NBA Playoffs- also known as my favorite time of year. The Bulls don’t start their postseason until Sunday evening, so I’ll have the complete series preview tomorrow morning. Today, I’ll look at the rest of the first-round series.

The Bulls owe Jason Kidd a huge debt of gratitude

The Bulls owe Jason Kidd a huge debt of gratitude
The Bulls are going to have to get together and buy Nets coach Jason Kidd one hell of a Christmas present. Kidd sat Joe Johnson, Deron Williams, Paul Pierce (his 3 leading scorers), KG, Shaun Livingston and Mirza Teletovic- and started Jason Collins instead of Mason Plumlee- for Wednesday’s game in Cleveland. Predictably, the Nets... Read more »

Bulls vs Raptors, 3/24/12, 7 PM CT, WGN America: Game Preview, Rose Still Out
The Bulls will face Toronto Raptors tonight for the second consecutive game, looking for their NBA-high 40th win of the season.

Bulls at Raptors Game Preview: 3/21/12, 6 PM CT, WCIU
The Bulls are in Toronto tonight to take on the Raptors (6 PM CT, WCIU). Derrick Rose is expected to sit out his fifth consecutive game with a sore groin, but in all honesty the Bulls should be able to win this one without him. The only question is which of the “non-big 3” are... Read more »

Bulls vs Raptors Game Preview

The Bulls have been utterly amazing on the defensive end at the United Center so far this season, allowing an average of 67.5 points per game. The most they have allowed in a game was the 74 vs Atlanta. Tonight doesn’t seem to be the night for that to change very much- Toronto comes into... 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.
