Lotto results should help the East, may help the Bulls

The Cavaliers will be picking #1 again for the third time in four years after hitting on a 1.7% chance to win the lottery.  I suppose the conspiracy theorists will say the NBA just wants to make up for that whole LeBron James thing by putting a dominant team in one of the crappiest markets in the NBA instead of in Boston or L.A...

Bulls still don't seem to care about players health

Bulls still don't seem to care about players health
Jimmy Butler was limping badly in the locker room again. Coming off a 46 minute performance in a game the Bulls were losing by 20+ points for virtually the entire night, 30+ for a good chunk of it as well.

Tom Thibodeau turns in coach of the year performance but will it translate to the playoffs?

If we were just going to go off the regular season results, Tom Thibodeau again deserves some credit in the coach of the year polls. Just remember that Vinny Del Negro won 41 games with the Bulls twice... with Derrick Rose...

The L.A. Lakers, despite sucking, still scare me

Maybe they shouldn't. Maybe I'm living in fantasy land instead of reality. Maybe my pre-season thoughts that they'd be 2nd or 3rd best team in the league just can't be shaken despite the fact they're unlikely to even make the playoffs. Whatever the reason, I still fear the Lakers...

Tom Thibodeau gets fewer best coach votes than Erik Spoelstra and other fun NBA GM Survey results

The annual NBA GM survey has been released, and as always, there's a few ridiculous votes on it. It's not surprising that NBA GMs are emotional beings with irrational thoughts, but Erik Spoelstra gets a "best coach in the NBA" vote while Tom Thibodeau does not? Come on guys...
