Final thoughts on Miami/LeBron/Dirk

So today, I was going to get allergy tested to purchase a new dog [yes, this ties in].   For people with severe pet allergies, there is a breed of dog called the American Hairless Terrier which many find tolerable.   However, the breed is pretty rare, and to test, you basically just play with...

Who's the MVP? I think it's Derrick Rose

This is one of the weaker MVP classes in memory which is partially why Rose has such a great chance to win, and right now, is probably the favorite.   Of course, winning an MVP in a weak class is kind of like being one of the more poor billionaires in the world.   It’s still... Read more »

Bulls dominate with defense, make a mockery of my predictive powers

I thought the Mavs would come in and blow out the Bulls, and if the Bulls won, I thought Derrick would need to dominate on offense, and I thought we’d need a great game from someone else offensively to complement him. I figured there’s no way the Bulls could match the Mavericks scoring punch, and... Read more »

Bulls vs Mavericks at 7pm on TNT

The Dallas Mavericks will look to avenge their early season loss to the Chicago Bulls and should have a much easier go at it with Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer out for the game (though Boozer was out for the first matchup as well). The Bulls struggled to get anything going on offense against Charlotte... Read more »

Bulls @ Mavericks at 8:30 on ESPN

The Bulls roll into Dallas to play their third game in four nights and the final game in the Texas triangle while the Mavs should be used to dealing with athletic point guards after playing a home and home with the New Orleans Hornets in their past two games. Much like against the Spurs, the... Read more »

Would you let a big name FA pick the coach?

I hate the idea.   Really. I was listening to the Afternoon saloon on the way home from work today, and they brought up the idea of letting a FA choose the coach, and Carmen was completely against it and gave quite valid reasons why. Still, it’s this simple, if LeBron James said “if you... Read more »

The case for Dirk Nowitzki

We’ve often viewed the summer of 2010 as the year of the big three: Lebron, Wade, and Bosh.   There’s a valuable second tier of guys like Boozer, Amare, Johnson, and Lee whom we’d all like to add but fear will be overpaid.   It begs the question, where exactly does Dirk Nowitzki fit in? Dirk’s age,... Read more »

Chicago Bulls @ Dallas Mavericks, 7:30 PM CSN-Chicago

The Bulls are without their All-Star point guard Derrick Rose, their starting center Joakim Noah and small forward Luol Deng. Without a doubt the three best players on the team. Chicago will also play their second game in two nights whereas their opponents for the evening, the Dallas Mavericks, has had three days off. Dallas... Read more »

Chicago Bulls vs Dallas Mavericks, 7:00 PM CSN-Chicago

MVP candidate, and German forward, Dirk Nowitzki and his newly upgraded Dallas Maverick make their way into the United Center tonight, hoping to extend Chicago’s three-game losing streak. The Bulls have dropped three games to Indiana, Atlanta and Memphis by an average of 14.3 points a game. The loss of Joakim Noah for the month... Read more »
