Tony Snell, The Forgotten Man

Tony Snell, The Forgotten Man
It’s easy to forget that Tony Snell remains a Chicago Bull. I did it yesterday when listing all the plus defenders on the Bulls roster. His name didn’t even register a thought. Perhaps it’s because he’s softly spoken and coy both on and off the court, that Snell has become a forgotten man. More likely,... Read more »
