Unexpected: Jimmy Butler is considering taking the five year offer

Unexpected: Jimmy Butler is considering taking the five year offer
From K.C. Johnson last night: http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/basketball/bulls/ct-jimmy-butler-free-agency-bulls-spt-0701-20150630-story.html After originally expressing hesitation over signing the Bulls’ five-year, roughly $90 million maximum offer, Jimmy Butler is finding the option more appealing with a player option for the final season, sources said. This was confirmed by Marc Stein today: Hearing Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler is leaning strongly toward taking... Read more »

Changing Pau Gasol's role

Changing Pau Gasol's role
There is something you need to know about me. I like jump shooting. I really, really like jump shooting. Like, a lot. I still miss you, Kyle. The drafting of Nikola Mirotic got my excited. Watching it come to life years later, especially against Memphis on Dec 19, where he rained in six bombs from... Read more »

I guess I'll ask: Is Jimmy Butler being premature with his plans?

I guess I'll ask: Is Jimmy Butler being premature with his plans?
When NBA stars plan and scheme their futures to maximize their earning power, it doesn’t register a bleep on the general radar for fans anymore. It’s become the norm to position oneself for major paydays, in part due to the realization that an athlete’s career is short and sweet, thus possessing a shell life that... Read more »

Jimmy Butler wants A LOT of money - And maybe not from the Bulls

Jimmy Butler wants A LOT of money - And maybe not from the Bulls
in a new #WojBomb, Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Jimmy Butler not only will seek out a shot-term offer sheet (which makes financial sense for him), but maybe even prefer the Los Angeles Lakers when he becomes an unrestricted free agent. As Butler spends time in Los Angeles this summer, a stretch that’s included an... Read more »

A mixed bag of thoughts

A mixed bag of thoughts
With all that’s happened this season, and since the season ended, now would be a good time to get some closure on things, as well as look ahead to what will be a very different future. The Bulls under Fred Hoiberg will be more entertaining Sure, I could beat around the bush, but I believe... Read more »

Internal improvements: What to expect?

Internal improvements: What to expect?
Since the season ended for the Bulls, this is the questions that’s been lingering in my mind the most, ignoring the whole Thibodeau debacle. Just how far can the likes of Tony Snell, Nikola Mirotic, and Doug McDermott go if given the minutes and the chance to develop? Mirotic and Snell obviously both have a... Read more »

Rose V Butler - Dawn Of Justice

Rose V Butler - Dawn Of Justice
Sorry. The Batman V Superman reference was right there. I couldn’t help myself. Fanboy tendencies aside, let’s take a look at the latest story surrounding the Chicago Bulls. Dan Bernstein of CBSChicago.com wrote a piece in which he noted there is potential tension between Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler. Rose was never asked directly why... Read more »

Replacing Joakim Noah's role

Replacing Joakim Noah's role
I could have chosen to talk about the upcoming Game 3, but I’d much rather talk about an increasing problem that needs to be figured out somewhat in a hurry if the Bulls are to compete again in the near future. That problem, is Joakim Noah. Now, before I go into this, let me preface... Read more »

What's the plan for Game 2?

What's the plan for Game 2?
You can look at Chicago’s Game 1 in two different ways. One being the Bulls coming through and getting the job done, which they did. Or, them acquired two solid big leads, only to have them both drop back to Earth before closing it out. The pessimist in me is concerned about that last view,... Read more »

Game 6 should include more Taj Gibson

Game 6 should include more Taj Gibson
While Nikola Mirotic brought tears of joy to millions of Bulls fans worldwide during the regular season, his playoff performance too has brought tears, only stemming from a very different place. His PER of 6.0 and TS% of .377 makes the 18.8 minutes he receives a night a major negative for the Bulls overall, especially... Read more »
