Generally Managing The Search For A General Manager

As a life-long Chicago Bulls fan, I know the pain of watching a franchise without a plan. I also know how that pain is closely associated with the two-headed managing team of Gar Forman and John Paxson. While fans have been vocal about wanting GarPax gone, I haven’t seen a ton of chatter about who... Read more »

Despite Butler's Return, Bulls Fall Flat in Phoenix

Despite Butler's Return, Bulls Fall Flat in Phoenix
The Chicago Bulls had scored over 100 points in four straight games before Wednesday’s deflating 123-92 loss to Golden State. So with the lowly Phoenix Suns on the schedule, I thought it would be safe to assume the Bulls would return to their newfound high-scoring ways, right? Of course, I couldn’t have been more wrong....

Piecing Together The Point Guard Puzzle

Piecing Together The Point Guard Puzzle
The Chicago Bulls have had many problems in this very confusing 2016-17 season. But perhaps the most obvious is the starting point guard position. That starting guard spot next to Dwyane Wade and All-Star Jimmy Butler has been a revolving door that has featured 29 starts for disgruntled veteran Rajon Rondo, 15 starts for Jerian... Read more »

The Chicago Bulls Play Their Best Game of the Season

The Chicago Bulls Play Their Best Game of the Season
I have no problem making the proclamation that the Chicago Bulls 128-100 victory at Chesapeake Energy Arena was their best performance of the season so far. In a game that left me more perplexed than I have ever been about a Bulls team, Chicago dominated in all facets of the game from start to finish.... Read more »

Appreciate Taj Gibson While You Still Can

Appreciate Taj Gibson While You Still Can
This is a love letter to Taj Gibson. He isn’t the flashiest, he’s a tweener, and can’t stretch the floor–but he’s ours. Consistency hasn’t been the calling card of the Bulls over the years, but Gibson has always been there. On a night to night basis, no one has questioned his effort, and that’s because... Read more »

How To Win The "Rondo Wars"

How To Win The "Rondo Wars"
Rajon Rondo has officially done it. It took him a grand total of 29 games to ruin his welcome on his fourth team in his decade long NBA career. But I warn Bulls fans to not fear, because there’s always a trade partner in today’s league if you look long enough. At this point, it’s... Read more »

Four games in five nights. Bulls fans knew this would be a daunting task, especially with head coach Fred Hoiberg starting to show a considerable lack of faith in his bench. On Tuesday night the Bulls fell short 102-91 to the Detroit Pistons. The loss saddles Chicago with their second three-game losing streak of the... Read more »

Rebounding Key To New-Look Bulls Identity

Rebounding Key To New-Look Bulls Identity
The Chicago Bulls finished last year as the 9th seed in the Eastern Conference. Their 42-40 record was accomplished through a confusing brand of hero-ball blended with a middling defense, middling offense, and over-matched coaching. But Chicago was able to hang their hat on one of the few statistics they’ve consistently held their own: rebounding.... Read more »
