A Case for Trading Jimmy Butler

A Case for Trading Jimmy Butler
Jimmy Butler is in the midst of a phenomenal season–averaging 25.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game. He has continued to provide stellar defense, he’s a lock for the All Star game, and has singlehandedly dragged the Bulls to a number of wins. With a true star like Butler, you would expect a...

Game Thread: Bulls @ Celtics 11.03.2016
If you’re a Chicagoan, or anyone with an affiliation to Cubs baseball, the Bulls trekking to Boston on a Wednesday evening for game four of the regular season may seem highly trivial at present.

Past Connections Can Trump Issues, Make Season Worth Watching

Past Connections Can Trump Issues, Make Season Worth Watching
By making the World Series, the Cubs are doing a fine job at making the other major franchises in Chicago look bad. The White Sox can’t decide on a direction, the Blackhawks can’t kill a penalty to save themselves and do we even need to say what’s wrong with the Bears? But what about the... Read more »

Luol Deng steps up, but the defense fails Chicago
As expected, the Bulls could not stop Rajon Rondo and that doomed them to defeat. Chicago made big runs when he left the game, but neither Marquis Teague or Nate Robinson had any hope of slowing him down while he was in it. Rondo scored 20 with 10 assists and was just a rebound shy of a triple double. However, there were some positive to take away from the loss for Chicago...

Balance of power in the East

The Bulls have finished with the best record in the NBA over the past two seasons, but no one expects that to happen again due to Derrick Rose's injury and the potential weakening of the supporting cast. However, the end record is less relevant than how well is capable of playing come playoff time. Where does this healthy Bulls team stack up in the East...

Luol Dengerous leads Bulls past Celtics

Luol Dengerous leads Bulls past Celtics
It wasn't pretty for the Bulls or Luol in the first half. It looked like the Bulls offense would once again fall apart without Derrick Rose to bail them out, but there was no rope dropping last night. The Bulls came back through sheer effort and will power, dominating the Celtics on the glass, frequently getting multiple offensive rebounds per possession on misses and playing suffocating defense which gave Boston little room to do anything whatsoever...
