Jimmy Butler Wins the Draft

Forget Lonzo and LaVar Ball speaking the Lakers into existence. Forget Markelle Fultz and the Process. Or, Jayson Tatum possibly imitating the game of Paul Pierce. Or a young Frenchman playing for his team’s title but first a short flight to NY for the Knicks to draft him. Or, all the Porzingis trade rumors that…

The Michael Carter-Williams Puzzle

When Michael Carter-Williams was traded for the second time in his young career, on the face of it, there was a huge red flag warning for the Chicago Bulls who became team number three. Why would a 6-6 point guard lottery pick be unable to stick with a team and system unless he is a…

Derrick Rose Laughing At the Bulls?

The Bulls are in full blow the house up mode with players turning on each other. What do you think Derrick Rose is thinking now?

Jimmy Butler Trade Talk Is Why You Can’t Trust The Bulls

We have been here before with Jimmy Butler (allegedly) on the trade market.

Jimmy Butler and Steve Kerr are the Bulls Last Hope

The irony of the catastrophe, that is the Chicago Bulls minus Tom Thibodeau, is that interest in the Bulls is still strong. It’s just not this Bulls team. All of the attention is on the Michael Jordan glory year of 1995-96 and their 72 win season that, at the time, seemed as unbreakable as Hank…

Bulls Fans Waiting For Their Apology

Yesterday, Clippers star Blake Griffin expressed how very, very sorry he was for the friend-on-friend violence in a Toronto restaurant when he slugged a team employee, not once, but several times, bashing Matias Testi’s face in. Griffin said, “I want to apologize to the fans.” It was refreshing to hear accountability. Griffin’s behavior put his…

Mike Dunleavy Returns But Will It Matter?

One week before the All-Star break, the Chicago Bulls, who were supposed to compete with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the top spot in the east, are floundering their way through the conference. They are currently a 5th seed in the conference and 1.5 games from being an 8th seed. They are closer to being in…
