Preseason Notes: Bulls Defeat Bucks 91-85

The Bulls got their first win of the preseason on Saturday night in Milwaukee, though as everyone knows, the score is among the least meaningful parts of a preseason game. Here are some thoughts on the players and where they stand so far: -Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Pau Gasol, Jimmy Butler and Kirk Hinrich all […]

Bulls-Pacers Preseason Preview

It’s been an interesting preseason so far. Without Derrick Rose, it was obviously going to be fascinating to see what the Bulls did. But this has been curious for different reasons. First, it was interesting to find out that Carlos Boozer was still alive. Boozington has put in two straight good preseason games. As I’ve […]

Bulls-Thunder Preseason Preview

The Bulls have won two straight preseason games, which if you’re counting at home means absolutely nothing. Especially considering their most recent win came against the Timberwolves who were playing without Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. It’s going to be a lot tougher this time around. The Bulls take on the defending Western Conference champs, […]

Timberwolves-Bulls Preseason Preview

Since the last time the Bulls played the Timberwolves things have changed for Minnesota. And not for the better. You have to feel bad for them, with Ricky Rubio in the same place as Derrick Rose with a torn ACL (although a few months ahead) and now Kevin Love breaks his hand. (I would take […]

Bulls-Bucks Preseason Preview

I didn’t get to watch the last Bulls game against the Timberwolves. Once again it didn’t look like I missed much. The bench continued to struggle. Chicago didn’t have Luol Deng or Rip Hamilton.

Cavaliers-Bulls Preseason Preview

The Bulls won their first tune-up game in their Derrick Rose-less quest, but all wasn’t bright. One of the most upsetting things was Jimmy Butler’s 1-11 night. He took a big step back after a promising summer, something I was afraid of when the competition got tougher. The rest of the bench wasn’t great either, […]

And the preseason begins…

The Bulls begin their preseason schedule tonight at home against the Memphis Grizzlies. So what are we likely to see? Probably not much of note. Preseason openers usually feature light duty for the projected starters (which, in the Bulls case, will likely be Kirk Hinrich, Rip Hamilton, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah). It’s […]

That Rip Hamilton signing could work out pretty well…

The Rip Hamilton signing didn’t cause shock waves in the NBAverse. Not with all the hubub surrounding Chris Paul. Even Miami signing Shane Battier got more positive press. After all, it was felt that the Heat needed only one or two little tweaks to get over the hump. Meanwhile, the Bulls won 62 games last season, […]
