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 […]

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 […]

YouTuberiffic: Luol Deng

One of the biggest things Bulls fans have to look forward to next season is the return of the Man from Sudan, Luol Deng. Only he was injured for so much of last season — and his play was so average prior to the injury — that it’s easy to forget why he could be […]
