Chicago Bulls Announce They’ve Exercised Third-Year Option on Tony Snell
October 27th, 2014 at 6:54 PM
***PHOTO1*** The Chicago Bulls have announced that the team will pick up Tony Snell’s third-year player option for the 2015-16 season. The 22-year-old Snell is scheduled to make $1,535,800 next year (per Basketball Insiders), and the move by the team to bring Snell back was pretty much expected. For a first-round...

Chicago Bulls (32-25) Vs Philadelphia 76ers (22-33) Game Preview
February 28th, 2013 at 3:27 PM
After dropping their eighth game in twelve games against the Kyrie Irving-less Cleveland Cavaliers, the Chicago Bulls look to, once again, bounce back. Tonight's opponent: the Philadelphia 76ers. Both teams come into tonight's game limping as they both continue to miss the presence of their franchise players. The 76ers continue to...

Chicago Bulls (11-9) at Philadelphia 76ers (12-9) Preview: Answering the Liberty Bell
December 12th, 2012 at 3:47 PM
When last the Chicago Bulls visited the city of brotherly love, CJ Watson made a stupid pass to Omer Asik, who missed two free throws and was forced to foul Andre Iguodala, who made the game-winning free throws to vanquish the Bulls form the playoffs. Now, 7 months later, precisely none...

Rip Hamilton Diagnosed with Torn Plantar Fascia; Expected to Be Out at Least One Week
December 2nd, 2012 at 7:54 PM
Rip Hamilton, who left the Chicago Bulls' 93-88 win over the Philadelphia 76ers with what was initially diagnosed as a foot sprain, tore the plantar fascia in his left foot and will be out for a minimum of a week.  It's theoretically possible that Rip could only miss a week, but...

Chicago Bulls 93, Philadelphia 76ers 88: That is So Bulls
December 2nd, 2012 at 1:55 PM
I'm going to describe a series of plays that helped a team clinch a win. You tell me which NBA team you think made those plays. Up two points with 15 seconds left, an above-average free throw shooter is fouled. He makes the first, but misses the second. The miss is...

Rip Hamilton Injured in Chicago Bulls 93-88 Win Over Philadelphia 76ers
December 1st, 2012 at 9:38 PM
Well, the inevitable has happened: Rip Hamilton finally got hurt. Hamilton appeared to land awkwardly after throwing an entry pass to Carlos Boozer in the third quarter against the Philadelphia 76ers. He was taken back to the locker room and diagnosed with a mild foot sprain. He would return at the...

Chicago Bulls (7-7) V. Philadelphia 76ers (10-6) Preview: Oh, It’s You Again
December 1st, 2012 at 1:10 PM
When last the Chicago Bulls saw the Philadelphia 76ers, the Sixers had just finished crushing what was supposed to be the Bulls' best shot at a championship in recent memory. Game six of that series should have been a crushing loss. And it was, to some extent. But even as CJ...

Chicago Bulls 2012-2013 Season Preview: Whither Thibs Goeth, There Also Goeth Many Wins
October 22nd, 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...

Memphis Grizzlies at Chicago Bulls Preview: They’re Baaaaaack…
October 8th, 2012 at 10:22 PM
At 7 PM Central Daylight Time on October 9th, NBA basketball returns to the United Center for the first time in five months. It's the first time the Chicago Bulls have taken their home court since they won game five of their first round series with the Philadelphia 76ers on May...

Omer Asik Offer Sheet: to Match or not to Match?
July 5th, 2012 at 8:36 PM
***PHOTO1*** It's been a few days since Chicago Bulls restricted free agent Omer Asik and the Houston Rockets came to terms on a three-year, $25.1 million deal, and I'm still not totally sure what the right call would be here. My initial reaction was "no way in hell do the Bulls...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Derrick Rose
June 21st, 2012 at 10:07 PM
After a dynamic 2010-11 season that saw Derrick Rose become the youngest NBA MVP ever at age 22, everybody wanted to see what he had in store for an encore. We heard stories about his summer workouts and the talk of a newly refined post game. I don't know about...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Rip Hamilton
June 20th, 2012 at 7:23 AM
After the disappointing defeat at the hands of the Miami Heat in the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals, pretty much everybody knew the Chicago Bulls would be looking for an upgrade at shooting guard. The trio of Keith Bogans, Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver did an admirable job in the regular season,...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Carlos Boozer
June 16th, 2012 at 9:05 AM
Year two of the Carlos Boozer experiment. Coming into the season, many didn't expect much from Boozer due to what happened in 2010-11. During last year's regular season, Boozer was missing in action for a large part due to his various injuries. During the postseason, Boozer was noticeably missing in...

All Signs Point to Chicago Bulls Attempting to Avoid Luxury Tax in 2012-13
June 8th, 2012 at 7:10 AM
The luxury tax. It's something the Chicago Bulls have avoided like the plague for almost as long as I can remember. And since the Bulls are likely not title contenders next season due to the injury to Derrick Rose, all signs point to them doing all they can to get...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Ronnie Brewer
June 3rd, 2012 at 7:50 PM
***PHOTO1*** In the 2010-2011 season, we all learned that Ronnie Brewer can only really be relied on for his defense. That didn't change much this season, despite a very hot shooting streak in the beginning of the year that whipped some people into a frenzy. However, as the year wore...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: C.J. Watson
June 1st, 2012 at 8:29 PM
After a fairly average year in the 2010-2011 season, Chicago Bulls point guard C.J. Watson came into this shortened campaign with fairly low expectations, or, at least to me he did. But regardless of the expectations anyone had, they undoubtedly increased the moment Derrick Rose began dealing with what would...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Omer Asik
May 29th, 2012 at 9:14 PM
***PHOTO1*** When the Chicago Bulls first announced that Turkish center Omer Asik would be joining the team for the 2010-2011 season, the news was greeted with a collective shrug and a grunt of "meh." After a free agency period that had already seen "The Decision" and the subsequent forming of...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Jimmy Butler
May 22nd, 2012 at 11:49 PM
When Jimmy Butler was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the 30th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, I really had no idea what to think. I had not seen much of him at Marquette, so I was pretty unfamiliar with his game. After reading more about him, it was...
