Arguing With Myself: Just How Good Are These Bulls?

Arguing With Myself: Just How Good Are These Bulls?
Kram — my inner-most condescending, arrogant and cynical self — and I have been on good terms of late. We both agreed that the Bulls wouldn’t be much good this season. Turns out that they’re exceeding expectations, starting the season with a 9-6 record. One of us is now more optimistic, while the other still... Read more »

On a night when Derrick Rose hit a clutch jumper for the New York Knicks, the Bulls had a chance to create their own late-game magic Tuesday against the Denver Nuggets.

Bulls Shake Off Lakers, Get to 3-1 on Circus Trip
This year’s incarnations of the Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers are not what they were for a long time as far as franchise faces.

Reacting To Rondo: A Look Into Rondo's 1st Ten Games As A Bull

Reacting To Rondo: A Look Into Rondo's 1st Ten Games As A Bull
The new era of Chicago Bulls basketball has gotten off to an exhilarating start. But if you look very closely through all of the Jimmy Butler dominance, the Dwyane Wade bravado, and the amazing offensive rebounding numbers, there is one obvious problem on this team: Rajon Rondo is not producing. He was brought in to... Read more »

Bulls Give Blazers No Chance

Bulls Give Blazers No Chance
The very last circus trip could not have started better for the Bulls Tuesday against the Portland Trail Blazers. Never mind that Rajon Rondo and Doug McDermott were absent. The Bulls scored the game’s first 10 points and played with such force on both ends, forcing Portland to burn two timeouts before the first quarter... Read more »

Bulls Destroy Magic, Move To 4-3

Bulls Destroy Magic, Move To 4-3
If the Bulls are going to return to the playoffs, they need to make the teams that don’t belong know just that. The Eastern Conference is bad now as it’s ever been. And the Orlando Magic proved they’re part of the problem by getting trashed 112-80 Monday at the United Center. The Magic, led by... Read more »

Bulls Lose 3rd Straight Game In A Blowout To The Pacers

Bulls Lose 3rd Straight Game In A Blowout To The Pacers
The Bulls did not play well against New York. They looked all out of sorts on the offensive end aside from a bombardment of Dwyane Wade threes, and found themselves slow cooked by a Knicks team that had almost exclusively performed poorly to that point. “Oh well”, I thought. “It’s just one game. The Bulls... Read more »

Game Preview: Bulls at Pacers

Game Preview: Bulls at Pacers
The NBA schedule is weird sometimes. The Bulls and Pacers just played each other one week ago exactly. The season is only a little more than a week old. That won’t stop the teams from meeting again on Saturday however. The Bulls’ 3-2 record is an inverse of the Pacers’ 2-3 mark. Exactly one week... Read more »

Bulls Game Notes: Rose, Noah And The Loss To The Knicks

Bulls Game Notes: Rose, Noah And The Loss To The Knicks
This game was never just going to be about basketball. It can’t be when two former stars of a franchise make their return, dressing in different uniforms other than the red and white we’ve been accustomed to, instead donning blue jerseys that have symbolized a heated rivalry for decades. Now that they’ve gone, we’re not... Read more »
