November 21st, 2012 at 10:27 AM

Chicago Bulls (3-1) Vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (2-2) Preview: Primetime
November 8th, 2012 at 12:52 PM
Raise your hand if you had the Chicago Bulls with a better record than the Oklahoma City Thunder, even through just four games. Now, anyone who just raised their hands, put them back down because you are lying. To be fair, the Bulls have yet to play a team that could reasonably...

October 23rd, 2012 at 6:30 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...

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...

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...

June 13th, 2012 at 12:04 AM

Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder Should Provide NBA Finals to Remember
June 11th, 2012 at 11:21 PM

June 7th, 2012 at 12:26 AM
***PHOTO1*** At some point during the 2010-11 NBA season, I felt compelled to hop on board the Oklahoma City Thunder bandwagon. Kevin Durant soon became my favorite non-Bull, while I also derived much enjoyment from watching Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Serge Ibaka develop as players. Things did not work out...
