Would Zion Fit The Bulls?

Would Zion Fit The Bulls?
Zion Williamson is the most exciting college basketball player of my lifetime. His combination of size, speed, power, and athletic ability is something we collectively as the human race have never seen before. A Shawn Kemp/Charles Barkley/Vince Carter hybrid, North Carolina fans can’t even deny the entertainment value Williamson brings to the basketball court. He... Read more »

I Am Thankful For Mack, Lauri, And A Whole Lot More

I Am Thankful For Mack, Lauri, And A Whole Lot More
As I sat at my dining room table yesterday, surrounded by my family and copious amounts of food, we began to go around the table and say what we were thankful for. Admittedly, I was rather annoyed. For the record, I have nothing against the exercise of discussing what everyone was thankful for at all.... Read more »

This LaVine is the Hero Chicago Deserves

This LaVine is the Hero Chicago Deserves
The Chicago Bulls valued him as a franchise player when they traded for him last summer and they paid him like one this summer with a 4-year $78 million contract. I questioned the trade when it happened and I questioned the undeserved nearly $20 million a year contract when it was given. The 24 games... Read more »

Jabari Parker Is Coming Home

Jabari Parker Is Coming Home
Same city. Same high school. Same injury. Hopefully, different story. Former Chicago Bull and NBA MVP Derrick Rose came home to the Windy City following his prestigious career at Simeon high school after just one season away at  Memphis.

The Bulls Are A Middle School Dance

The Lakers signed LeBron James. Boogie Cousins signed with the Warriors. Paul George shocked the world and resigned with the Thunder. DeAndre Jordan took his talents to Dallas. The Lakers signed Lance Stephenson and Rajon Rondo (what the hell?). Trevor Ariza left Houston for Phoenix. BOOGIE COUSINS SIGNED WITH WARRIORS (I still can’t comprehend this).... Read more »

Is Wendell Carter Jr. Our Ideal Selection At Seven?

Is Wendell Carter Jr. Our Ideal Selection At Seven?
I have a confession; I watched a lot of Duke basketball this past season. Yes, I still feel dirty about it and yes, this may be a sin Mother Theresa herself wouldn’t have forgiven me for. I get it; I am a monster. Like most reasonable people, I was programmed from an early age to... Read more »

Bullish on the Future of the Bears and Bulls

Bullish on the Future of the Bears and Bulls
Over the weekend, I flew out to Salt Lake City, Utah for my cousin’s bachelor party. That sentence may seem confusing, as “Salt Lake City” and “Bachelor Party” go together like ketchup on a hot dog, but Salt Lake City was not my final destination. In fact, Salt Lake City wasn’t even in the same... Read more »

College Basketball In Chicago Feels Right

College Basketball In Chicago Feels Right
In our sports crazed city, the local college basketball scene has been almost non-existent during the 28 years I have lived here, which is quite hard to believe when you really think about it. I mean, despite being one of the only major US cities to have a declining population, 2.7 million people still call... Read more »

Lucky to have Lauri

Lucky to have Lauri
On Monday, Chicago Bulls rookie power forward Lauri Markkanen connected on the 100th 3-pointer of his young career, making him the fastest player to hit the century mark in NBA history. Yes, we knew Lauri had a great shot coming out of the University of Arizona, but no one besides Donald Trump would claim to... Read more »

The End is Near for Nikola Mirotic

The End is Near for Nikola Mirotic
Who am I? I earned a spot in the starting lineup for the Chicago Bulls during training camp I had my face broken in practice before the season started because I tried to pick a fight with a teammate who is from the gang-ridden streets of Little Rock, Arkansas (not a smart decision to start...
