Derrick Rose injures (fill in the blank)

Derrick Rose injures (fill in the blank)
Derrick Rose missed the second half of the Bulls’ 114-109 loss to the Nuggets in Denver on Tuesday. Yeah, I know, big surprise right? Let me first point out that my headline (and the following template) are stolen from a Facebook post by my buddy Paul M. Banks, the brains behind The Sports Bank: Become... Read more »

Nikola Mirotic should ask for a trade

Nikola Mirotic should ask for a trade
Nikola Mirotic paid a $3 million buyout so he could come to the NBA this season to play for the Bulls. He should either ask for a trade, or ask Tom Thibodeau to reimburse his expenses. Thibs is wasting away his rookie season, when he should be the runaway leader right now for Rookie of... Read more »

Thibs watches officials hand Kings a win over Bulls

Thibs watches officials hand Kings a win over Bulls
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau must be a closet Sacramento fan, because he stood there and let the officials hand the Kings a victory over the Bulls Thursday night. At least Joakim Noah showed that he has a pair, picking up a well-deserved technical after getting called for his complete bullshit fifth foul on a Demarcus... Read more »

Derrick Rose played in back-to-back games for the first time this season as the Bulls went into Toronto and overcame a horrible defensive first half to leave Canada with a 100-93 win over the Raptors Thursday night.

Related Post – Taj Gibson needs to sit Aaron Brooks had his best game as a Bull, giving his new team game-highs of 26 points and 8 assists in 28 minutes, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Tom Thibodeau’s apathetic, stubborn coaching as the Bulls dropped a 106-101 decision to Boston in the United Center....

    Bullsville

    Don Ellis started covering sports professionally when he was 15. The same year (1980), as a student assistant at Seeger Memorial High School in West Lebanon, IN, he was one of the first in the world to use, study and implement analytics in basketball. He attended Daytona State College and Ball State University, and some of his past credits include InsideHoops (NBA Runaround: The NBA According to Ellis) and ESPN Florida (The Florida Sports Reporters), where he was fortunate enough to work with many rising stars, including NFL Network's Dan Hellie, Redskins coach Jay Gruden, Magic radio and TV personality Dante Marchitelli, and WSB-TV (Atlanta) Sports Director Zach Klein. In addition to running the Bullsville blog and officiating basketball, baseball and football for the KHSAA, he is also a bass player and vocalist who writes and produces music in his spare time (you may remember his internet hit "I Hate Eddy Curry"). He's a 3rd-generation Cubs fan, a Bulls fan since the days of Van Lier and Sloan, and a life-long New England Patriots fan. He's seen Primus 9 times and thinks Les Claypool walks on water. By far his greatest accomplishment is being a father of three and grandfather of one.
