November 13th, 2012 at 1:50 PM
The Chicago Bulls worry me right now, and it has nothing to do with Kirk Hinrich's injury or the lack of anything resembling consistent bench production. No, the source of my worry is one Derrick Martell Rose. Specifically, Derrick Martell Rose's left knee. ***PHOTO1*** With reports surfacing that Rose has started cutting in...

So, good news, better news and bad news. The good news is that a Bulls free agent target is actually intending to sign with them. The better news is that the signee is not Darko Milicic, but rather Nazr Mohammed, a veteran center formerly a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The...

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...

Report: Former Illinois Guard Demetri McCamey to Play with Chicago Bulls Summer League Team
June 29th, 2012 at 4:07 PM
I watched Demetri McCamey for four frustrating years at the University of Illinois. The kid has talent, but he's also pretty much the epitome of inconsistency. Played like a first round draft pick one night, and then slogged through a miserable performance the next. Combine that with some attitude issues...
