Bottom line on the Bulls: Thank goodness that’s over
April 28th, 2017 at 11:18 PM
***PHOTO1*** I've played enough bad defense to know bad defense when I see it. And what I saw in the Celtics series was enough bad defense by the Bulls to send a defensive-minded coach into therapy for years. It's a good thing Tom Thibodeau wasn't here to witness it. He would...
