Is Derrick Rose pure, dagnasty evil?

Rick Telander of the Chicago Sun-Times sure seems to think so. He further suggests that anyone who isn’t horrified by the “fraudulent test score” allegations — in addition to the fresh allegations that a grade was changed on his high school transcript — can go “live in your world of beer-can-on-the-belly sports relativism.” Personally, I think Mr. Telander […]

“The Inner Workings of a Creator”

It has the Bulls logo, says “Chicago Bulls” and the serial number is CHI (CHICAGO) 23…in honor of MJ’s jersey number! Heck, it even has Mike’s signature.

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 […]
