Bulls Doing Just Fine Without Melo

Mike Dunleavy meets with the media

Since Tom Thibodeau has taken over as head coach of the Chicago Bulls, they have never been a team to look back and wonder, “What if?” — not that anybody would blame them if they did. Two major knee injuries to Derrick Rose have robbed Chicago from a legitimate chance to compete for a title, […]

Bulls Look to Get Back on Track

Joakim Noah talks to the media after Tuesdays practice.

The Chicago Bulls have definitely improved offensively so far this season. With the addition of Pau Gasol, and departure of the smaller/less effective Carlos Boozer, the team has upped their points per game average from 93.7 to 102.6. Strangely enough, it has been the defense that has struggled at times. The Bulls (12-8) are allowing […]

Mavs edge Bulls in 2OT, 132 – 129

Pau Gasol talks to the media after the loss

The highest scoring team in the NBA, the Dallas Mavericks, were the spoilers for the Bulls homecoming after a 4 – 3 circus trip. The Mavs (13-5) and Bulls (11-6) were evenly matched as they played like playoff bound teams from their respective conferences. The first quarter flew by with each team shooting 20+ shots […]

Celtics vs Bulls

Thibs

This was a tired Bulls team after their 118 – 115 victory over the 76ers last night in Philly, as every starter played over 31 minutes. A rested player would have been a nice reinforcement for the Bulls but Derrick Rose sat for the 2nd straight game with two sprained ankles. The Celtics also had […]

Bulls 2014-15 Season

Mirotic & Gasol

It’s hard to describe the feelings I have when talking about this upcoming Bulls season. I would compare them to a first date… with a girl you have known for a while but have never had the stones to ask out. You two have flirted off and on for years, but have never given a […]

Bulls Welcome Mirotic and Gasol (Full Audio)

Gasol

The Chicago Bulls came into this summer’s blockbuster free agency period with one big target on their minds, unfortunately for them, they came away with a “Plan B operation.” While it was disappointing not to land one of the most proficient scorers of the past decade, it may go down as the best alternate plan […]

In what looked like a match made in Heaven, the Denver Nuggets drafted Doug ” McBuckets” McDermott with the 11th pick in Thursday night’s 2014 NBA Draft. The Nuggets are known for their run and gun style, high scoring, and lackadaisical defense. McDermott is known for his offensive instincts, terrific 3 point shooting, and at […]

As we say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014, it is tradition to begin to think about our goals and aspirations for the New Year. We often formulate a list of resolutions, a plan of attack, for the upcoming year. I decided to team up with my good friend and fellow NBA addict Nolan […]

Bulls Early Warning Signs?

Coach Thibs Yelling

The Chicago Bulls improved their record to 2-3 after Friday’s win against the alarmingly horrific Utah Jazz. Utah presented the perfect opportunity for the Bulls to gain confidence and quiet some of the chatter about their slow start to the season. The reasoning behind Chicago’s poor start has been widely discussed: Derrick Rose is still getting […]

elton-brand

Joakim Noah put it rather succinctly.  “We got our asses kicked today.” The Philadelphia 76ers took advantage of a third quarter meltdown by the host Chicago Bulls. The ensuing collapse wiped out a 55-47 lead, and which morphed into an 83-69 deficit after three periods. The 109-92 victory enabled the visitors to tie their first […]

1996-Chicago-Bulls

first in a three part series…. The 1995-96 basketball season began with more anticipation than normal.  The season started off with the Houston Rockets celebrating their second straight championship and one of the game’s greatest players would be making his return for a full season.  That player is Michael Jordan.   Jordan had taken an eighteen-month […]
