Who are the real contenders for a title this season?

It's fairly rare that a season starts where you can't identify the team that will ultimately win the championship given a few teams to pick from. Unlike the NFL where probably 50% of the teams could win the superbowl in any given year, the NBA is more consistent in figuring out in advance who has a shot to win the title...

Morey vs GarPax and the luck involved in putting a team together

So lately, I've seen quite a few people discuss what a genius Daryl Morey is and how if only the Bulls had such an aggressive GM that would make big moves and plan ahead to strike at the right time then they'd have a title. Perhaps. But the Bulls front office is more aggressive than you think and just a tad less lucky...

LaMarcus Aldridge and Thomas Robinson attached to the Bulls rumor mill

LaMarcus Aldridge wants to land in Chicago, and the Bulls covet Thomas Robinson. Chicago is also discussing an extension with Luol Deng, except that they're not...

Bulls clobbered by Rockets, try to regroup against the Pacers

What can we say about that Rockets loss? At least it was fun watching Nate Robinson single handedly try to bring the Bulls back from a 30 point deficit and do an admirable job of at least providing a glimmer of hope in the game. That said, the Bulls were simply crushed due to a defense that let them down for once...

Will the Bulls supply Christmas joy?

The Chicago Bulls come off two days of rest after they looked visibly worn out in a blowout loss to the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta on Saturday. Chicago struggled to get back on defense, struggled to defend the paint and overall looked like a team who's starters play too many minutes, something they've avoided in the past despite a heavy workload...

Chicago Bulls pay a visit to Omer Asik and the Houston Rockets

The Chicago Bulls swore up and down they'd do whatever it takes to keep Omer Asik. They made their 2012 trade deadline decisions envisioning Omer on the roster as they could have traded him away for value but opted to keep him. In the end, they grossly miscalculated the market for Asik which seems foolish in retrospect...

Bulls couldn't have gotten involved in James Harden deal

The trade of James Harden to the Rockets shakes up the power structure of the NBA. On the surface, Kevin Martin seems like a fair replacement for Harden in a scenario where OKC needs to save cash. Martin's one of the few players in the league who scores with high volume and efficiency, much like Harden and has done so without two more dangerous scorers next to him to relieve the pressure...

What to do with Omer's three year 25.1 million dollar offer

What to do with Omer's three year 25.1 million dollar offer
Omer's contract offer will test the Bulls seriousness in paying for a winner. If the Bulls are willing to pay the tax and do whatever it takes to win, then this is a pretty easy deal to match. If not, then this is a pretty difficult deal to match...

Yesterday was the first day that signings were leaking around the league including several players the bulls were "targeting", and the league nixing a trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers...
