Thibodeau gets four year extension and other media day goodness

It felt like a black cloud was hanging over media day on the way there. A series of questions on uncompleted extensions, underwhelming off-season moves, and Derrick Rose's ACL. The Bulls pulled a circus trick to turn a potential negative day into a veritable fun fair breaking the news of a four year extension for Tom Thibodeau...

Kyle Korver - "I'm a wing player. SG, SF, I play both."

Kyle Korver didn’t take long to impress Bulls fans putting up 22 points in his pre-season debut for the team.  Korver’s impact exceeds his statistical output as well due to the spacing he adds to the floor for the other players.  He scored coming off back screens, catch and shoots, and even finding his way...

I caught up with James Johnson at media day, and if you didn’t listen to my podcast then let me say this about James Johnson.   He’s the one guy on the team who completely treats you like you’re just any friend he has.   He never big times you, is extremely friendly, actually wants to talk...

John Salmons media day interview and impressions

I caught up with John Salmons at media day and discussed his recovery from the groin injury as well as his shift from SF to SG this season for the Bulls.

Jannero Pargo represents the sole free agent added to the team this year.   I caught up with him at media day to ask him about this return to the Chicago Bulls.  Pargo was great fun to talk to and one of the happier guys at media day.  I’ve always liked him due to some of... Read more »

Joakim Noah media day interview and impressions

I caught up with Joakim Noah at media day for an interview.  As with most of my media day interviews, not all of the questions are mine, and the fight for Joakim’s attention was far more fierce than most of my interviewees.   For a guy who’s probably walking a bigger landfield than most players at...
