Complete and Utter Domination: Bulls 114, Hawks 81

You know what I took from this game against the Hawks? People better start listening to what Derrick Rose has to say. And beware. Rose is a both humble and quite, which borders on amazing when you stop and consider his current stature among the NBA greats. His “aw schucks” attitude and respectful demeanor aren’t acts. In a […]

Game Recap: Bulls 132, Kings 92

Last season, the Bulls lived through a waking nightmare. With 8:49 left in the third quarter of a home game against the Kings, John Salmons — remember him? — drilled an 11-footer to help the Bulls go up 79-44. For those who enjoy simple math, that represented a 35-point lead with less than 21 minutes to go. Completely and utterly insurmountable, right? Sadly, […]

Bulls sign “injury insurance”

ESPNChicago’s Nick Friedell writes: “As expected, the Chicago Bulls signed guards John Lucas III and Jannero Pargo on Sunday, and both players practiced. The pair are expected to provide injury insurance and depth in practices.” I’m sure Brian Scalabrine and Rasual Butler are relieved to know their Gatorade-and-towel handing out duties have been effectively cut in […]
