Look, there’s nothing less reliable than “basketball sources”.   I’ve scared to post any rumors I hear these days simply for the fact that of all the rumors I’ve heard through inside sources, not one has actually ever taken place.    Most trade rumors are plants by agents, management, or players to try and get...

Bulls shopping Deng too?

According to Ken Berger they are: • In addition to peddling Kirk Hinrich, sources say the Bulls also are exploring interest in Luol Deng, who has four years and $51 million left after this season.

Derrick Rose dominates Wizards; hits game winner; lifts Bulls to 2 OT win

The Bulls may have required 2OT to beat the hapless Wizards, but they got the win.   Largely due to Derrick Rose’s career high 37 points and first game winning shot [though it wasn’t a buzzer beater].   Yeah, he took a lot of shots to get his points, and yeah he needs to improve his... Read more »

After a three game losing skid, it’s nice to get a couple of laughers, and the Bulls have delivered their first two real blow outs in consecutive nights.   Sure the Pistons were without Prince, and Ben Gordon could only go a few minutes due to an injury suffered a night ago, but a win...

Vinny Del Negro hanging on; left to speak when management bailed on him

Some quotes from the Tribune: “I go on what the people I work with and the people that make those decisions tell me,” Del Negro said about his future. “They’ve been supportive.” “I don’t let it affect myself or the team,” Del Negro said. “I focus on what I can control and that’s our effort...

The pre-post game, post game, fire VDN

Look, I don’t think it’s his fault.   I don’t think his replacement will be much better.   However, I also don’t think there’s much choice left.   The team has lost 9 of 10 games and almost all of them have been blowouts.   What’s worse than anything else is that the absolute tank... Read more »

Do the Bulls have a plan?

Yes, I realize that is a stupid question given that the Bulls have contracts that expire in the year 2010, strangely connected to the same year LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and others will be on the open market.
