Chicago Bulls 96, Miami Heat 89: Taking Their Talents to South Beach
January 5th, 2013 at 1:53 PM
Raise your hand if you truly expected the Chicago Bulls to beat the Miami Heat on the road last night. You're lying, but congratulations to all of you. This game came as a surprise to most people. The Bulls had been playing extremely poorly of late, with their only wins coming against...

Southeast Division 2012-2013 Season Preview: Let It Go, Guys, Let It Go
October 24th, 2012 at 7:00 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...

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...

Miami Heat Barely Hang on in 100-96 Game 2 Victory Over Oklahoma City Thunder
June 15th, 2012 at 12:40 AM
***PHOTO1*** In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat jumped out to a early 13-point lead before being reeled in by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Game 2 started in similar fashion, with Miami blitzing Oklahoma City from the get-go and holding a double-digit lead throughout the majority of...

Big Second Half Helps Oklahoma City Thunder to a 105-94 Game 1 Win Over Miami Heat
June 13th, 2012 at 12:04 AM
The Oklahoma City Thunder had been in this position before. In fact, it was Game 6 against the San Antonio Spurs where they faced an 18-point first half deficit and came back to win the Western Conference.  This time around in Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat,...

Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder Should Provide NBA Finals to Remember
June 11th, 2012 at 11:21 PM
Before the shortened 2011-12 season started, many thought the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder were on a collision course for the NBA Finals. And even though both teams finished second in their respective conferences, plenty of folks still believed that we were destined for a heavyweight bout between the...

Big Fourth Quarter from ‘Big Three’ Propels Miami Heat to Second Straight NBA Finals
June 10th, 2012 at 12:10 AM
Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics. Game 7. 73-73 heading into the fourth quarter. What else could you ask for with the Chicago Bulls out of the playoffs? Well, when it got down to winning time, the Heat's "Big Three" delivered one of their finest performances since so boldly joining forces in...

Miami Heat’s LeBron James Silences Critics for One Night
June 7th, 2012 at 11:35 PM
***PHOTO1*** I really had no idea what to expect in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat. My heart told me the Celtics would dispatch the Heat and advance to the NBA Finals to face the Oklahoma City Thunder, but my head simply...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Taj Gibson
June 5th, 2012 at 8:25 PM
I love Taj Gibson. I figured I'd just start with that, get it out there so you all know what you're getting into. Taj is probably my third favorite player on the Bulls, behind only Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. Having watched him since he came into the league for the...

With Chicago Bulls Out, These Conference Finals All NBA Could Ask For
May 27th, 2012 at 6:54 PM
It was rather difficult for me to watch the second round series between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers for two reasons. One, it just was not entertaining basketball. Sure there were some moments of brilliance, but for the most part, the brand of hoops was hideous. And second, I...

What Does Future Hold for Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler?
May 23rd, 2012 at 3:12 PM
Chicago Bulls wing Jimmy Butler may have played only 363 total minutes in his rookie season (including playoffs), but that's not going to stop me from gazing into the crystal ball and taking an educated guess on how he will perform going forward. It's obviously hard to predict how much...

Chicago Bulls Clinch One Seed in Eastern Conference Thanks Boston Celtics Win
April 24th, 2012 at 10:02 PM
The Chicago Bulls clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference without even breaking a sweat on Tuesday night.  ***PHOTO1*** The Miami Heat's 78-66 loss to the Boston Celtics secured the one seed in the East for the idle Bulls. The Heat still had an outside chance at that top spot if...

Chicago Bulls Week in Review: Fight to the Finish
April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 AM
With the conclusion of this past week of NBA hoops, we have reached the final week of the season that almost never happened. It was just about four months ago that the Chicago Bulls started a 66-game regular season journey that has certainly tested their mettle, although I doubt many...

Chicago Bulls Number One Seed Watch: Magic Number Down to One
April 21st, 2012 at 10:40 PM
After the Chicago Bulls' rough loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night, there was legitimate concern that the one seed in the Eastern Conference would be wrestled from Chicago's grasp. The Bulls still had two tough matchups left on the schedule, while it would not have been out of...

Some Final Thoughts from Chicago Bulls’ 83-72 Loss to Miami Heat
April 20th, 2012 at 1:16 PM
Let's face it. The Chicago Bulls played extremely poorly in their ugly and especially chippy 83-72 loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night. After starting out hot, the offense devolved into dribble-fests that often resulted in tough, contested jumpers. Only 24 of the Bulls' 70 shots came from the...

Chicago Bulls Suffer Disappointing 83-72 Loss to Miami Heat
April 19th, 2012 at 11:22 PM
Those of you who have been reading my stuff and/or following me this year know that I do my absolute best not to overreact to anything; whether it be good, bad or in between. So if you've come to this page looking for confirmation of your belief that the sky...

Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat Set to Square Off in Final Regular Season Meeting
April 19th, 2012 at 5:56 AM
Thanks to the Chicago Bulls' surprise loss to the Washington Wizards on Monday, the fourth and final regular season meeting between the Bulls and Miami Heat on Thursday (7 p.m. CT on TNT) still holds quite a bit of importance. The Bulls are currently 2.5 games ahead of the Heat...

Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose Upset with ‘Cheap Shots’
April 16th, 2012 at 9:21 AM
***PHOTO1*** Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose is usually not one to be too outspoken or demonstrative. The whole "Humble-Bot" thing has taken on a life of its own (I think we can credit Blog-a-Bull for this one), so it's certainly very surprising when Rose does speak out about something.  After Sunday's...
