Bulls Get Pounced by Denver
The Denver Nuggets were in town on a stormy Tuesday night in Chicago as they faced off against the Bulls at the United Center. It was a tough night at the office for Bulls star Jimmy Butler. The 3-time All-Star never got going, shooting 3-for-13 from the floor and only registering 8 points. Butler only... Read more »

Evaluating the Bulls' Trade Deadline

Evaluating the Bulls' Trade Deadline
There were a lot of questions surrounding the Bulls around the trade deadline. Would they move Jimmy Butler and start a rebuild? Would any of the number of role players involved in rumors over the last month or so fetch anything in return? Now that the deadline has passed we have answers, and they aren’t... Read more »

Who is Bobby Portis?

Who is Bobby Portis?
With the 22nd pick in the 2015 NBA draft, the Chicago Bulls selected 6’11 PF Bobby Portis out of Arkansas. What was thought to be a “steal” selection at 22, Bobby Portis hasn’t begun his career the way the Bulls Front office envisioned when Adam Silver called his name. The Bulls front office has had...

Stop Pretending Paul George is Better Than Jimmy Butler

Stop Pretending Paul George is Better Than Jimmy Butler
As we approach this year’s trade deadline, the annual buzz around the Boston Celtics and their plethora of assets has reached a fever pitch. If the notoriously stingy Danny Ainge found himself willing to part with his prized draft picks, many believe that he could land one of the top two-way stars in the Eastern... Read more »

The Bulls Shouldn't Ignore Felicio's Progression

The Bulls Shouldn't Ignore Felicio's Progression
Cristiano Felicio is doing something that’s quite foreign to most Bulls’ fans–he’s progressing. A young player actually developing in Chicago’s system? Shocking, I know, but once the initial surprise wears off this is a one of the few things to be optimistic about. So as teams search the league for good, young, and affordable talent... Read more »

Struggles (Douggles)

Struggles (Douggles)
Doug McDermott has had a rough go of things. After a reasonably decent sophomore campaign last season that saw him bounce back from a disastrous rookie year, many expected the four-year Creighton star to take another leap. Instead, McDermott has flatlined, with both his numbers and minutes diminishing as of late. What’s going on with... Read more »

Piecing Together The Point Guard Puzzle

Piecing Together The Point Guard Puzzle
The Chicago Bulls have had many problems in this very confusing 2016-17 season. But perhaps the most obvious is the starting point guard position. That starting guard spot next to Dwyane Wade and All-Star Jimmy Butler has been a revolving door that has featured 29 starts for disgruntled veteran Rajon Rondo, 15 starts for Jerian... Read more »

Appreciate Taj Gibson While You Still Can

Appreciate Taj Gibson While You Still Can
This is a love letter to Taj Gibson. He isn’t the flashiest, he’s a tweener, and can’t stretch the floor–but he’s ours. Consistency hasn’t been the calling card of the Bulls over the years, but Gibson has always been there. On a night to night basis, no one has questioned his effort, and that’s because... Read more »

This Writer's Pain: Jerian Grant Still Doesn't Start

This Writer's Pain: Jerian Grant Still Doesn't Start
I labeled this post, “This Writer’s Pain” because I am literally in pain thanks to the Chicago Bulls organization’s decision making. Thankfully, right now it’s only emotional pain, but it could develop into physical pain quite quickly. That’s because I will slap myself upside the head if Fred Hoiberg doesn’t make the obvious rotation decisions that... Read more »
