Chicago Bulls Offseason: What’s Happened So Far
July 29th, 2013 at 6:49 PM
It’s been an unsurprisingly slow summer for the Bulls in terms of any major moves.  After coming off an injury riddled season, the Bulls look positioned to be at full strength for opening night of 2013-2014 NBA season (which also happens to be rumored to be opening up against the...

November 12th, 2012 at 2:28 PM
The Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets will play at the United Center on Christmas Day. And now, we all know what their uniforms will look like.  I'm not going to say that these uniforms — all of them, not just the Bulls — are the worst uniforms of all time, but...they're...

Pacific Division 2012-2013 Season Preview: I Can’t Stand the Lakers
October 25th, 2012 at 6:20 AM
  Hello there! For the second consecutive year, I am putting entirely too much effort into previewing the NBA season. Last year, I tried to cram everything into two parts — three, actually, if you include the preview for just the Bulls — but that was impractical and not particularly well organized. This...

July 12th, 2012 at 2:24 PM
As the Chicago Bulls continue to try to trade Kyle Korver, wait for Omer Asik to sign his offer sheet and show no interest in Dwight Howard, they did release a bit of news that some may or may not find interesting. That would be the roster that will participate in...

Chicago Bulls Stuck in Neutral as Other Contenders Improve
July 9th, 2012 at 3:17 PM
The Miami Heat have added Ray Allen for cheap. The Los Angeles Lakers have landed Steve Nash in exchange for draft picks. The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Joe Johnson and are possibly on the verge of getting Dwight Howard for very little. Countless other teams have made moves to bolster their...

Omer Asik Offer Sheet: to Match or not to Match?
July 5th, 2012 at 8:36 PM
***PHOTO1*** It's been a few days since Chicago Bulls restricted free agent Omer Asik and the Houston Rockets came to terms on a three-year, $25.1 million deal, and I'm still not totally sure what the right call would be here. My initial reaction was "no way in hell do the Bulls...

Report: Chicago Bulls and Tom Thibodeau Still Far Apart on Contract Extension
June 29th, 2012 at 1:25 PM
***PHOTO1*** I meant to get to this yesterday, but with all the draft hubbub, it conveniently slipped through the cracks. And based on the nature of the report, I almost feel like that's the way it was meant to be. Basically, K.C. Johnson reports that the Chicago Bulls and coach...

Analyzing the Chicago Bulls’ 2012 NBA Draft
June 29th, 2012 at 12:06 PM
Heading into the 2012 NBA Draft, I admitted to having no idea what the Chicago Bulls were going to do. The Luol Deng rumors that had been whipping around earlier in the week had died down, which was somewhat disappointing, yet expected. As much as I love Deng, I was...

Chicago Bulls Laying Low as 2012 NBA Draft Arrives
June 28th, 2012 at 11:15 AM
The 2012 NBA Draft has arrived, which means we're less than 24 hours away from the death of fake Twitter accounts that spew false rumors/deals that some people, even respected journalists/bloggers, somehow buy into. It was somewhat funny at first, but after awhile, it just got old. Although now that...

LeBron James Finally Gets His Ring as Miami Heat Trounce Oklahoma City Thunder to Win NBA Title
June 22nd, 2012 at 1:42 AM
I remember watching "The Decision" back in the summer of 2010, simultaneously cursing the ridiculousness of it and praying that LeBron James would choose the Chicago Bulls as his next destination. When LeBron uttered his famous "take my talents to South Beach" line, a feeling of both disappointment and rage...

Miami Heat on Brink of NBA Title After Exhilarating 104-98 Win Over Oklahoma City Thunder
June 20th, 2012 at 12:40 AM
I'm still trying to catch my breath. A Game 4 that started with the Oklahoma City Thunder running out to an early 17-point lead ended with the Miami Heat grabbing a heart-pounding 104-98 win despite LeBron James finding himself on the bench with leg cramps. With the victory, the Heat...
