Chicago Bulls should roll dice on DeMarcus Cousins

Chicago Bulls should roll dice on DeMarcus Cousins
While the Bulls may have the “heart of a champion,” they don’t have the talent of a champion.  This was evident in their matchup with the defending champion Miami Heat.  Even with a healthy D-Rose, the Bulls don’t have what it takes to defeat the Heat in a seven game series.  What the team needs...

Derrick Rose nearing “hate” level with Chicago sports fans?

Derrick Rose nearing “hate” level with Chicago sports fans?
If you were to ask a Chicago sports fan who’s on their Mt Rushmore of hated Chicago athletes, the most common responses would include Jay Cutler, Carlos Boozer and Alfonso Soriano.  All three players entered this city with great promise and “love” from the fans, but currently walk around with a negative connotation.  If Derrick...

If LeBron James is soft, what is Derrick Rose?

If LeBron James is soft, what is Derrick Rose?
Just two years ago, the Heat met the Bulls in the Eastern Conference finals for a chance to go to the NBA finals.  The series featured the marquee matchup of the Bulls Derrick Rose; the no nonsense hard worker who would do anything to win vs. the Heat’s LeBron James; the ultra-talented, but “soft” superstar. ...

Chicago Bulls must pull trigger on any Carlos Boozer deadline deal

Chicago Bulls must pull trigger on any Carlos Boozer deadline deal
Carlos Boozer for Andrea Bargnani? Pau Gasol? Josh Smith? It’s hard to believe what one year can do for a player, but Carlos Boozer actually has a little bit of trade value this year. Just last year, if the Bulls would have been offered Eddy Curry, heck even “Mr. Cooper” Mark Curry(I’ll take Mark in... Read more »

Joakim Noah, Brian Urlacher, and Julius Peppers: These are the faces of Chicago sports today.  What do all of these athletes have in common?  All three are known for their defense, not their offense.  Chicago continues to be a backwards thinking sports town.  Gone are the days where defenses ruled supreme.  The last three NFL...

    I'm what they call a Chicago sports junkie. I'm a season ticket holder for the Northwestern Wildcats and Chicago Bears and go to a ton of games at Wrigley, US Cellular, and the United Center. I live in suburban Elmhurst with my beautiful wife who also love sports. Unfortunately for me, she is a Cowboys fan (still working on changing that). Even though her allegiance is to the Cowboys, she too loves all of the Chicago teams. We even had Staley Da Bear at our wedding, and let me tell you, Da Bear can play the drums. There isn't a Chicago game that either of us miss! I graduated from Elmhurst College and was a four year starting pitcher for the squad. Baseball is what I know and what I love. Although my playing days are behind me, I still coach both at the college level (Elmhurst College) and legion level (Gurnee Riverdogs).
