Why the Bulls should not trade Taj Gibson

Why the Bulls should not trade Taj Gibson
I must remind myself that it’s only preseason, but to date, the Chicago Bulls have been a complete mess defensively. As per NBA.com, through seven preseason games played, the Bulls currently have a 107.5 defensive rating. Put simply, that is bad. Real bad.

Interesting tidbit on the starting line-up from Sam Smith
For months, Bulls fans have sighed heavily at the thought of pairing Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol in the starting line-up. Therefore, this paragraph from Sam Smith should instil plenty of optimism: Perhaps the biggest question coming into the season is who will start at center. The Bulls have two All-Star centers in Gasol and... Read more »

Aaron Brooks is returning, which will be interesting
For the first time in years, the Bulls will have a continuous flow of personnel backing up Derrick Rose. Not since C.J. Watson has a point guard, outside of Rose, played in consecutive seasons or the team, but now Aaron Brooks gets the chance. It’s an interesting development for several reasons.

What's the plan for Game 2?

What's the plan for Game 2?
You can look at Chicago’s Game 1 in two different ways. One being the Bulls coming through and getting the job done, which they did. Or, them acquired two solid big leads, only to have them both drop back to Earth before closing it out. The pessimist in me is concerned about that last view,... Read more »
