January 14th, 2015 at 1:28 PM
At this point, would anyone take exception to the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards being considered rivals? If anything, Bulls-Wizards being a rivalry makes a lot more sense than, say, Bulls-Cavaliers. Chicago’s rivals during the Jordan era (Detroit, New York, Boston) have combined to win 32 games this season, so...

Joakim Noah Recovers from Offseason Knee Surgery
October 4th, 2014 at 1:49 PM
In Chicago, knee surgeries are like quarterbacks in Cleveland: when a new one pops up, you can’t help but think about the scarred memories associated with the last one. Bulls All-NBA center Joakim Noah underwent arthroscopic knee surgery to remove cartilage from a troublesome right knee in May, which left...

Washington Wizards 86, Chicago Bulls 73: Capital Punishment
January 27th, 2013 at 3:04 PM
It's official. It took me three months, but I finally figured out this team. ***PHOTO1*** On Friday, facing a quality team at home, where they've struggled, it made sense for the Chicago Bulls to roll over and get blown out, or perhaps to fight it out in a close game. What did...

December 30th, 2012 at 3:28 PM

Chicago Bulls 87, Washington Wizards 77: Nothing Magic About It
December 30th, 2012 at 7:00 AM
Here's the thing about the Chicago Bulls this year: They're not that good. They're a ridiculous defensive team. Nobody denies this. But they can't score to save their lives if the jumpers aren't falling, and they tend not to fall much. The defense will keep them in most games, but without...

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...

September 2nd, 2012 at 12:30 PM
Towards the end of my senior year of high school, my English teacher informed us that we would be doing a final research paper for him. A senior thesis, of sorts. I seized upon the opportunity to write about the Bulls, and this was the result. Now, because my bosses...
