Let's Find Robin Lopez a Home
The Chicago Bulls are stuck. Gone is the optimism that comes with a top 10 offense and defense.

Fred Hoiberg has been called a lot of things during his short tenure with the Chicago Bulls. Some nice, some things that I can not repeat on this blog (and even worse!), but one word that hasn’t been used enough when discussing Fred Hoiberg is adaptability. He’s been able to roll with the punches that... Read more »

Bulls Drop Winnable Game To Nuggets
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.

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 »

Past Connections Can Trump Issues, Make Season Worth Watching

Past Connections Can Trump Issues, Make Season Worth Watching
By making the World Series, the Cubs are doing a fine job at making the other major franchises in Chicago look bad. The White Sox can’t decide on a direction, the Blackhawks can’t kill a penalty to save themselves and do we even need to say what’s wrong with the Bears? But what about the... Read more »

Two days is all that remains until the Chicago Bulls begin their 51st regular season, playing host to the Boston Celtics on Oct. 27. As anticipation for another season builds, so do questions about the new-look Bulls. The addition of Rajon Rondo, Dwyane Wade and Robin Lopez has greatly shifted the complexion of the roster,...

Bulls Practice Overtime, Drop to Hornets

Bulls Practice Overtime, Drop to Hornets
There will be games this year in which the Bulls will have to play beyond the mandated 48 minutes. They got their first overtime rehearsal Monday against the Charlotte Hornets.  It didn’t work out in the end as they lost 108-104.

It's Always A Financial Decision, Gar
It’s become the norm to expect that any trade made by the Chicago Bulls is done so under the premise that dumping salary and saving money on luxury tax bills is a must. Partly said in jest, there is some truth that lies within that statement. It occurred with the departure of Luol Deng and... Read more »
