Does Anyone Want Carlos Boozer?

As the free agency class dwindles down to just about nothing, Carlos Boozer is waiting for a phone call. The optics are against him. His best days are long behind him both on offense and defense. At best, he is a backup power forward that can log about twenty minutes, score about 14 points and…

J.R. Smith Gives Himself A Pay Cut

It’s Getting Weird In Chicago

In a game that felt like bad root canal surgery, the Chicago Bulls left the NBA stage in late May, unceremoniously whipped into dust. As a reward, the NBA is allowing the Bulls to begin the new year in grand style by kicking off the NBA season and hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers on October 27th.…
