Firing A General Manager Is The Easy Part

Firing A General Manager Is The Easy Part
No matter where, when or who I converse with on all matters pertaining to Bulls basketball, one theme consistently permeates through all discussions – fire Gar Forman. In the wake of 10 losses through their last 15 games, the Bulls’ inept play has emotions running high among the fan base, and with it groans of... Read more »

The Free Agents Of 2016 Won't Save Us

The Free Agents Of 2016 Won't Save Us
Cyclical in nature and routine as ever, the offseason of 2016 will see the Chicago Bulls opt for the NBA draft and the free agency period as the saving grace to infuse the staling roster with youth, athleticism and more Hoiberg-friendly ball players. As the main mode of roster improvement employed by the Bulls’ front... Read more »

Derrick Rose in Attack Mode?

Derrick Rose in Attack Mode?
Derrick Rose began the season excruciatingly bad. Statistically one of the worst players in the league, Rose’s poor performance could easily be summed up by his -5.32 RPM rating and Bulls worst -3.6 DRE/game. Never a reliable outside shooting threat, he inexplicably struggled to convert shots at the rim. Without being able to draw very... Read more »

Bulls Defensive Numbers Don't Necessarily Match the Eye Test

Bulls Defensive Numbers Don't Necessarily Match the Eye Test
When the Bulls fired Tom Thibodeau, they abandoned their devotion to being an elite defensive unit. They wanted to stay hip with the times, so they brought in an offensive minded, mild-mannered, anti-Thibs in Fred Hoiberg. Most people thought the Bulls’ defense would completely crumble under Hoiberg, but some remained hopeful that the Thibodeau-forged unit... Read more »

To Trade Or Not To Trade?

To Trade Or Not To Trade?
In a 31-point thumping to the reigning NBA champions, the Chicago Bulls reached the halfway mark of their 2015-16 season with a 24-17 record and more questions raised than answered. Despite being the owners of the league’s eighth best record, the Bulls find themselves right in the middle of mediocre in net rating, placing 14th league-wide.... Read more »

Game Break: Bulls vs. Warriors

Game Break: Bulls vs. Warriors
After watching the Bulls play the Warriors, I wanted to go through some of the themes I saw in the game in a “Game Break” segment. Guarding the Pick-and-Roll The Warriors are basically a cheat code. They have at least 4, but often 5 guys on the court at all times that you can’t leave,... Read more »

The Loss of Joakim Noah

The Loss of Joakim Noah
At the start of the year, the Bulls had a 5-man front court log-jam. Nikola Mirotic was supposed to double-up on major success in minimal minutes during his rookie year. Joakim Noah was supposed to overcome his previous year’s knee problems and get back to standard Noah Basketball. Pau Gasol was promised minutes in a... Read more »
