The preseason (that won’t happen) schedule has been released

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune writes:

“The Bulls are scheduled to open [the preseason] against the Michael Jordan-owned Charlotte Bobcats on Oct. 10 at the United Center. Other home games are Oct. 14 against the Timberwolves, Oct. 21 against the Pacers and Oct. 27 against Scott Skiles and the Bucks. The Bulls’ road schedule calls for them to travel to an undetermined location to play the Pacers on Oct. 13, Sioux Falls, S.D., to play the Timberwolves on Oct. 19 and Oct. 25 to conclude their schedule in Charlotte against the Bobcats.”

You know, when I was seven years old, my mom planned a family trip to Chicago. The big event was to see a Cubs game at Wrigley Field. Unfortunately, mom made my sister — who was 11 years old — the primary navigator.

Handing an 11-year-old a giant map of Chicago and telling her to “get us to Wrigley” went about as well as you’d expect. We got horrifically lost and never made it to the game. On the bright side, we ate at the Ground Round in Elmhurst, and they had a very cool magician going from table to table doing the disappearing sponge ball trick. It was some solace.

Anyway, for years and years, my mom kept the Cubs tickets from the game we never made it to in the family photo album. It was kind of a sad relic of what might have been. That’s already how I feel about this preseason schedule. Maybe I’m being overly pessimistic, but I don’t think there will be a preseason. I’m not very hopeful for a regular season. So take this list of potential games for what it’s worth.

A grain of salt.

    You’re right the preseason may not happen but the regular season will start on time no maater what because I can guarantee any last one of yall that there will be a 2011-2012 season no matter what, especially after the football counterparts have already declared football season after such a long lockout. GO BULLS AND I LOVE THIS GAME.

    Your mother put her 11 year old daughter in charge of a map and told her to navigate? Jesus Christ. I couldn’t even finish the rest of the article my mind was so boggled by that.

    On an unrelated note, SI ranked CP3 and Deron ahead of Rose in the top 100 NBA players.

    someone shoot that memo to Rose, so he can tear it up next season (whenever that may get underway)

    Derrick Rose has some bold predicitions

    In an interview with HoopsHype, Rose was asked about his feelings on the MVP award and responded by saying “It was great, but I’m not satisfied. I won’t be satisfied until I win a championship. I’m not satisfied at all. There’s not a doubt in my mind that I’m not going to win a championship. I’m going to win multiple championships. It’s not a doubt in my mind.”

    It getting closer to September and it’s doubtfukl that the league and its players will come to an agreement anytime soon. Hopefully we will not be in for a crappy post lockout season as with what happened in 1998/1999
