Derrick Rose carries the Bulls to victory

Derrick Rose carries the Bulls to victory
Through three periods the Chicago Bulls scored 42 points. No one deserves to be in a basketball game when they've scored 42 points through three periods. Not in the NBA. However, their defense played fairly well over that stretch holding the Hawks to 56. 14 points, a lot to overcome...

If options dry up, trade for J.J. Redick

If options dry up, trade for J.J. Redick
The Bulls need another SG, they were obviously highly interested in J.J. Redick last season as they were willing to bed three years and twenty million dollars on him. The Magic, in an attempt to go for the ring, matched the offer...

Would you take on Joe Johnson's contract?

The Chicago Bulls needed more perimeter scoring. They needed more ball-handling. They needed more play making. Joe Johnson can provide these things...

Putting this Bulls season into perspective

Going into the season, I felt the Bulls had maybe a 10% chance of losing in the first round, 40% of losing in the 2nd, 30% of losing in the ECF, 10% of losing in the finals, and 10% of winning the whole thing.   The Bulls managed to make it to the ECF which... Read more »

Adjustments for game five - play with speed, seriously

I noted this as the title of the game three adjustments, and we saw the Bulls attempt to do it in game four.  We saw them do it with tremendous success.   We saw them get out in transition a bunch.   We saw them build up their lead and play well while doing it.... Read more »

Predicted adjustments for game two

With the Miami Heat getting blown out against the Chicago Bulls, there’s definitely going to be adjustments.   After watching the game again last night and trying to break down the offensive play making for Chicago, I came up with my best guess as to how Miami decides to adjust to Chicago, and what Chicago...

Derrick Rose our only hope and greatest concern

The Chicago Bulls evened up their series against the Hawks with a win at the United Center, and while they still played fairly poorly, they manage to head down to Atlanta tied up 1 to 1. Things aren’t looking so great though, as it seems more and more evident that the Bulls haven’t played their... Read more »

Bulls vs Hawks 7pm on TNT - 6% of teams come back from 0-2

An 0-2 deficit isn’t an impossible hole to climb out of, but it’s close enough that Chicago knows they certainly don’t want to have to buck the odds.   Start throwing around whatever cliches you want to describe the importance of this game, for Chicago, it’s true.  Losing to Atlanta would be a humiliating way...

A Tribute to Keith Bogans

Keith, I don’t think that you’ll be getting many of these, so you might want to save this one…maybe even buy a frame or something. You came to the Bulls this past summer, signing for about $400,000 over the league minimum and about 1/3 of the amount that your fellow new Bulls’ shooting guards, Kyle... Read more »

Tom Thibodeau went all Phil Jackson on us, and it worked

Tom Thibodeau went all Phil Jackson on us, and it worked
Remember the start of the season when Carlos Boozer was out, and many of us were simply hoping not to get annihilated on the western conference road trip?    Tom Thibodeau kept going deep to his bench, and everytime the bench unit came out, the Bulls were destroyed. I remember writing article after article about... Read more »
