In the spirit of Christmas, I'll keep this short. Omer Asik is making his triumphant return to the United Center as a member of the Houston Rockets. Pretty much everything I wrote the last time the Chicago Bulls took on the Rockets still applies. However, the Rockets seem to have kicked...

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...

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.

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.
