Chicago Bulls face the one who got away

There's been no shortage of words for my belief that the Bulls should have pursued O.J. Mayo. While at times he looked like the second coming of Larry Hughes [the bad one], he possesses the athleticism, scoring instincts and all around game the Bulls desperately need long term at the shooting guard position...

Derrick Rose said the Bulls are looking for a two guard, who will it be?

While there were many interesting nuggets of information to pull out of the Derrick Rose interview on youtube, the two that might be most interesting to me were related to the makeup of the team. I was left with an impression that he wasn't too happy about the break up of the bench mob and that the team promised to get him a better perimeter creator to play along with him...

The case for and against O.J. Mayo

I view O.J. Mayo as one of the most overhyped prospects in the NBA. He was viewed as future NBA superstar in high school. He played well in his single season in college, and was drafted with the third overall pick in 2008. Due to a huge amount of minutes and possessions, he posted strong raw numbers his first two seasons in the NBA...

Making sense of Chicago's free agency options

Either the Bulls haven't contacted any free agents yet, or they've kept a lid on whom they're talking to. The Bulls are in a difficult spot in terms of what they can get done this season in terms of adding people and may quickly have to come to deal with the loss of Omer Asik who looks likely to get an offer that prices him out of what Chicago wants to pay...

Bulls return home 3-1 to face Grizzlies 7pm on CSN
The Chicago Bulls kicked off the 2011-2012 season with a successful road trip, and now they'll return home for a couple of tough opponents before heading out on the road again. The schedule hasn't exactly been murderers row, but in their first nine games, seven will be on the road, and only two or three of them are against teams expected to miss the playoffs...

Bulls rejected Omer and Brewer for Mayo at the deadline will talks be revisited?

I was talking to one of my Bulls sources the other day, and he told me that the Bulls were in talks for O.J. Mayo at the deadline.   K.C. Johnson had reported that the Bulls offered up two firsts, and a second for Mayo. But according to multiple league sources, the Bulls aggressively pursued... Read more »

Bulls preparing to go conservative due to new CBA?

Nick Friedell: It’s doubtful the Bulls will make a major move on draft night. The last thing they want to do is add another high-salaried player because of the uncertainty of the impending lockout and new collective bargaining agreement. The safer bet is the Bulls will decide to make both selections. Yes, first-round contracts are... Read more »
