The changing perspective on Bulls management

The changing perspective on Bulls management
With the drama between Tom Thibodeau and Bulls management reaching its end last week, expectations of a quieter and more steady franchise are once again at a high point. At least, this is what the Bulls tell themselves. The conclusion of the aforementioned rift, has created another one, and one with much higher potential for... Read more »

Bulls top Raptors in game with a playoff feel

Bulls top Raptors in game with a playoff feel
Neither team played particularly great for any stretch with both squads going through long stretches of offensive dominance and offensive ineptitude. Chicago blew a 15 point lead in the first half and a 13 point lead in the second, but hung on to win on Jimmy Butler's block with two seconds to go...

Luol Deng calls the Cavaliers a mess

Luol Deng is getting a valuable lesson before he free agency. When picking out a future destination, the culture of the team is awfully important. It also may be difficult to ascertain without actually being inside a locker room. A team can have A+ facilities and still have players that aren't exactly on the same page...

Bulls players may miss Luol Deng, the team? Not so much

Bulls players may miss Luol Deng, the team?  Not so much
We all saw Luol Deng in that hideous yellow uniform last night and wondered, did this game settle a debate amongst Bulls fans? Luol Deng, the ultimate glue guy or an over-rated non-impact player...

Deng trade too little, too late, and mostly about money

Deng trade too little, too late, and mostly about money
The Bulls may have insisted they wouldn't trade Luol Deng in a salary dump and demanded assets back, but that doesn't necessarily appear to be the case. This is a move that had to be done, a move which likely couldn't have been done earlier, but the protection on that Sacramento pick makes the move somewhat dicey for Chicago...

Chicago Bulls and Cavaliers talked Bynum for Deng will one side flinch?

Chicago Bulls and Cavaliers talked Bynum for Deng will one side flinch?
The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to part ways with Andrew Bynum whose contract can be waived to save someone six million dollars. The Bulls, presumably, would like to get under the luxury tax this season to avoid potential future repeater penalties as well as to save some serious cash in a year that has no chance of ending with a parade...

Bulls still don't seem to care about players health

Bulls still don't seem to care about players health
Jimmy Butler was limping badly in the locker room again. Coming off a 46 minute performance in a game the Bulls were losing by 20+ points for virtually the entire night, 30+ for a good chunk of it as well. It was never close, the Bulls never had a chance, and yet here is Jimmy Butler trotted out to play 46 minutes with a bad wheel...

Bulls front is a facade for the fans

Bulls front is a facade for the fans
Jerry Reinsdorf sent out a letter, Gar Forman did a Q and A, and Tom Thibodeau knows we have more than enough to win. However, the front put up by the owner, GM, and coach is merely that. Everyone knows the season is over and reading between the lines it looks more likely than not that the Bulls will act that way...

Luol Deng stars, Derrick Rose scrubs

Luol Deng stars, Derrick Rose scrubs
Up is down? Down is up? Cats and dogs living together? It's the end of days. Derrick Rose's 9.4 PER heading into this game? Yeah, it went down. Luol Deng? He's playing like he wants one more big pay day. The Chicago Bulls edged the Bobcats in a fairly ugly affair...

Will Luol Deng and Jimmy Butler knock down the three?

The Bulls might just be on the cusp of greatness, they'll need a few things for that to happen, but they aren't unreasonable things. They'll need Derrick Rose to prove he's still a top five player in the NBA, they'll need overall health of the roster, and they'll need Jimmy Butler and Luol Deng to knock down open shots...
