Bruce Levenson's email, racist, capitalistic, or both?

Bruce Levenson's email, racist, capitalistic, or both?
Bruce Levenson self reported (or didn't depending on sources) a "racist" email to the league's office and now will sell his stake in the Atlanta Hawks. Quite honestly, I question how racist this email is though...

Bulls Beat #336 - Derrick Rose kind of stinks right now
If you're a fan of Derrick Rose and can't listen to some criticism, I suggest you don't download this episode of the Bulls Beat, because well, he's playing some awful basketball...

Derrick Rose finishes fifth game in six nights with a lot of shots

Derrick Rose took nine shots in the game against Ukraine, the most he's done so far. He knocked down only two baskets including this up and under drive to the basket. ...

Team USA beats Dominican Republic, Rose with another pedestrian effort

Team USA beats Dominican Republic, Rose with another pedestrian effort
Derrick Rose played in a back to back, and he should make it a back to back to back later on today against the Ukraine. Rose was again poor with passes that were just a bit off, finishes that he inexplicably missed, and defense that looks quite a bit better than it is...

Derrick Rose needs to be a high usage player

Derrick Rose needs to be a high usage player
Derrick Rose is now shooting 4/18 in international play against some of the lower caliber teams in the tournament. While Bulls fans debate about whether Derrick Rose is rusty, has lost it, or can't play FIBA ball, I'll throw out one more alternative. He simply can't play as a low usage player...

Derrick Rose was quoted a few weeks back noting that this was the best team he's ever played with. While I think it feels good on the surface, it's worth actually comparing the various players on it, their ability levels, and seeing how good they really are...

Derrick Rose doing just about nothing for Team USA

Derrick Rose doing just about nothing for Team USA
It appears that Rose has lost his starting job to Kyrie Irving, and it also appears much of the early hype about Rose playing great in Team USA camp was vastly overstated. We've now seen Rose play in three games, and we haven't seen much of anything...

This is the Bulls best chance to vanguish LeBron

Let's face it, the Cavs are younger and flat out more talented than the Bulls. They have the best player in the NBA, a top 10 player, and another all star caliber player on the squad. Unlike Miami they have plenty of depth, and that depth isn't just a bunch of older ring chasers, they have some young talented players as well...
