The Chicago Bulls Need Sister Jean

The Chicago Bulls Need Sister Jean
Dear Sister Jean, I hope you have been well since we all last saw you at the end of Loyola’s improbable run to the Final Four. You inspired a team that no one outside of Chicago had heard of to reach a place that they hadn’t been since you were in your early 40s!  Now... Read more »

Bullish on the Future of the Bears and Bulls

Bullish on the Future of the Bears and Bulls
Over the weekend, I flew out to Salt Lake City, Utah for my cousin’s bachelor party. That sentence may seem confusing, as “Salt Lake City” and “Bachelor Party” go together like ketchup on a hot dog, but Salt Lake City was not my final destination. In fact, Salt Lake City wasn’t even in the same... Read more »

March Madness Week 2: Players To Watch

March Madness Week 2: Players To Watch
Last weekend not only destroyed brackets, hopes, dreams, and the belief that Jim Boeheim’s 2-3 zone will ever be solved, but also greatly hampered my ability to write about some of the top NBA prospects you should watch in the tournament. As great of stories it has been for teams like Kansas State, Loyola, Florida... Read more »

March Madness Week 1: Players To Watch

March Madness Week 1: Players To Watch
The greatest sporting event of the year began this week and thankfully, after just one day of madness in the books, I have almost completely forgotten about the dumpster fire that was Selection Sunday (TBS single handily caused the unemployment levels in the US to spike Monday morning). With one day down and the first... Read more »

Lucky to have Lauri

Lucky to have Lauri
On Monday, Chicago Bulls rookie power forward Lauri Markkanen connected on the 100th 3-pointer of his young career, making him the fastest player to hit the century mark in NBA history. Yes, we knew Lauri had a great shot coming out of the University of Arizona, but no one besides Donald Trump would claim to... Read more »

The End is Near for Nikola Mirotic

The End is Near for Nikola Mirotic
Who am I? I earned a spot in the starting lineup for the Chicago Bulls during training camp I had my face broken in practice before the season started because I tried to pick a fight with a teammate who is from the gang-ridden streets of Little Rock, Arkansas (not a smart decision to start...

You Miss a Lot in Six Months

You Miss a Lot in Six Months
To subscribe to my weekly Friday post, please submit your email in the “Subscribe By Email” text box above. Would you consider six months a long amount of time? This ran through my mind as I sat down to write my first post since the end of June and I think it simply depends on... Read more »

2017 NBA Draft Live Journal: What Started As A Journal Quickly Became A Jimmy Butler Therapy Session

2017 NBA Draft Live Journal: What Started As A Journal Quickly Became A Jimmy Butler Therapy Session
Last year I kept a live journal as I watched the 2016 Draft. Had a blast doing it and got a lot of positive feedback (plus it’s hilarious to look back at a year later), so I decided to do it again. Starting with the draft coverage that began at 6pm and going all the way... Read more »

NBA Draft Preview: What Does One Do With The 16th Pick?

NBA Draft Preview: What Does One Do With The 16th Pick?
Guerschon Yabusele, Terry Rozier, Jusuf Nurkic, Lucas Nogueira, Royce White; If you don’t recognize most of the names on this list, I wouldn’t hold it against you. If you were to ask the person next to you (if no one is next to you, walk to the next room, locate the nearest human, and that... Read more »

Will the Olympics Break Jimmy Butler?

Will the Olympics Break Jimmy Butler?
My first love is basketball, but like the NFL preseason, I don’t usually don’t ever care about the Olympic men’s basketball games because I find them to never be competitive. In the 2012 London Olympics, the US team won by an average of 32 points per game. The 1992 team would beat teams by 700... Read more »
