My Second Favorite NBA Team

For many years, the Phoenix Suns under Mike D’Antoni were (almost) everyone’s “second favorite team,” and why not? They were fun, exciting, joyful, and kinetic.  But ever since Steve Kerr took a wrecking ball to the roster and D’Antoni moved east, sentimental favorites have been slow to surface. As NBA rosters are beginning to flesh […]

The Bulls 2009-10 Schedulapocalypse

The NBA has officially released its 2009-10 schedule…and it looks pretty grim for the Bulls. They open the season on October 29 at home against what should be a much-improved San Antonio Spurs team. The next day they travel to Boston for a tea party with their old friends the Celtics. Only unlike last season’s […]

Top 7 hopes for the 2009-10 season

Vince Carter. Shaquille O’Neal. Rasheed Wallace. Hedo Turkoglu. Ron Artest. All of these players were acquired by teams intent on making major improvements. Heck, even the New Orleans Hornets dealt the oft-injured Tyson Chandler for Emeka Okafor. Meanwhile, the Bulls lost their leading scorer and then signed Jannero Pargo (back from Europe!) and Lindsey Hunter (kept alive by the dark […]

Tim Thomas: Bought out

First the Bulls signed a backup combo guard. Then they re-signed their backup-backup point guard. And now they’ve reached a contract settlement with Tim “The Human Coffee Break” Thomas. Exciting times in the Windy City folks…banner number seven here we come! Okay. Sarcasm over. For now. Thomas had one year remaining on his contract at $6,466,600, which […]

James Johnson: The Highlights

Here’s a fun little highlight video of James Johnson, whom the Bulls selected with the 16th pick in last week’s NBA draft. I find his ability to take opponents off the dribble and his variety of left-handed finishes to be particularly impressive. However, I am mildly concerned that his low post repertoire seemingly consists of […]

Introducing your new Chicago Bulls

As it turns out, the Bulls did not trade up in the draft (i.e., no Gerald Henderson), nor did they pull off any blockbuster trades, ala the Cleveland Cavaliers (who acquired Shaq) and Orlando Magic (who got Vince Carter). Instead, they opted to add toughness, depth and versatility to the front court…while maintaining a little financial flexibility for next summer. With […]

Congratulations, Phil

Phil Jackson won six NBA championships during his nine years as head coach of the Chicago Bulls. And yet many of his critics were always quick to point out — often with an almost sadistic glee — that his success was due as much (or more so) to luck than his coaching acumen. And by […]
