Luke Schenscher’s game-used shorts!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of anything I’d rather spend my hard-earned cash on than a pair of game-used shorts that once adorned the sweat-soaked man region of Chicago Bulls legend Luke Schenscher. Just think: For only $26.99 — plus shipping — these babies could be yours. (Presumabaly, the seller either washed […]

What If: Game 2

This post continues the multi-part tale “What If…the Chicago Bulls had defeated the Boston Celtics in the first round of the 2009 NBA Playoffs.” Following the Bulls’ 123-95 Game 1loss to the Magic, Vinny Del Negro decided that what his team really needed — rather than, say, key coaching adjustments –was some rest and relaxation, […]

What If: Game 1

The Bulls have been eliminated from the playoffs and their season is over you say? That kind of talk is for quitters and wimps. For me, Chicago’s postseason stampede is still alive and well. It’s going on in the world’s most powerful basketball simulation computer: My mind. So, in the proud tradition of Marvel Comics’ […]

Air Gordon versus Captain Kirk

Anyone who follows the Bulls will tell you that the team’s biggest and most immediate offseason concern is what to do with Ben Gordon: Re-sign him…or let him moonwalk out of town? The main problem is that, to avoid the dreaded luxury tax — the Dr. Doom of the NBA – John Paxson probably won’t be […]

Random pre-game thoughts

This Bulls-Celtics series has had more unexpected twists and turns than an M. Night Shyamalan movie. Except, unlike an M. Night Shyamalan movie, I could watch these games over and over again. (Sans Game 3, of course.) I have no idea what to expect from Game 5. (Although I have a sneaking and somewhat paranoid […]

Updated! MRI looming for BG’s hammy

Chicago’s shot-making superhero is scheduled to undergo an MRI today. The reason: He strained his left hamstring in the first half of yesterday’s double-overtime thriller against the Celtics. Said Gordon: “I was driving and I heard something pop. It’s sore; hopefully it’s not too serious. I’m going to do what I need to do.” I couldn’t […]

Q&A with Celtics Hub

Update! You can now read my Q&A at Celtics Hub. Zach Lowe of Celtics Hub was kind enough to answer a few Leprechaun-related questions leading into the Bulls-Celtics playoff series. 1. With Kevin Garnett, the Celtics surrender only 90.8 PPG. Without him, they’re giving up 99.4 PPG and (gulp) 107.5 PPG versus playoff teams. Why […]

Drew Gooden’s game-used shoes!

Would you build a motorized bar stool out of an old lawn mower? Are you suffering from a crippling  case of dementia? Do you have a spare $165 — plus $10 S&H — just burning a hole in your pocket? If you answered “Yes, yea gods, yes!” to all three questions, then eBay has just the auction for you: A pair […]

Repelled by the Raptors

Let me be frank: When your opponent shoots over 54 percent and (according to the game recap) sets a new franchise high for points scored, chances are you didn’t win the ballgame. And the Bulls did not, dropping a 134-129 overtime decision to the Raptors in Toronto. It’s called “a hand in the face,” guys. […]

Shaq on Brad Miller

One of the great constants of Shaq’s career — right up there with his habit of giving himself nicknames — has been an ongoing reluctance to say nice things about other big men. This is mostly because Shaq sees himself as “the CEO of centers in this league” and, as the reigning shogun, “the rest of the […]
