It's finally over. The Miami Heat's winning streak is finally over at 27 and joy to the world it came at the hands of the Chicago Bulls with a 101-97 victory. To be honest, I didn't really expect last night's win. In my game preview I openly admitted that I...

March 19th, 2012 at 11:55 AM

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah signed a five-year, $60 million extension before last season started. And at the beginning of the year, he backed up the Bulls' belief in him by playing the best basketball of his career. However, the rest of Noah's season was injury plagued, and he spent the...

2010-11 Chicago Bulls Player Grades: Kyle Korver
August 19th, 2011 at 9:30 AM
***PHOTO1*** My expectations for Kyle Korver might have been unrealistic going into the season. After watching the Bulls struggle mightily from long range in 2009-10, I viewed Korver as the answer to the Bulls' shooting woes. Unfortunately, that didn't necessarily come to fruition. And I blame Tom Thibodeau and the coaching staff...

Bosh’d: Miami Heat 96 – Chicago Bulls 85
May 23rd, 2011 at 9:47 AM
I'm done (for now) taking shots at Chris Bosh. After dominating the Chicago Bulls for 34 points in the Miami Heat's 96-85 victory in Game 3 last night, I'm running out of reasons to hate on him. He's still a soft rebounder, but his offensive display last night was incredible (and...
