Mike Miller? No thanks

According to the Bleacher Report, the Minnesota Timberwolves — who have three first round picks in this year’s draft — might want to package a pick and Mike Miller for either Ben Gordon (in a sign-and-trade) or Kirk Hinrich. It seems unlikely that the Bulls would do a sign-and-trade for BG, because that would mean they’d […]

Derrick’s hot car

Check it: That sweet, sweet ride is the Maserati Gran Turismo owned by none other than Chicago Bulls Rookie of the Year Derrick Rose. One note of caution. If you want to cruise down the mean city streets like D-Rose, I suggest you start saving your pennies. The Maserati GranTurismo has an MSRP of $110,000…and I’m […]

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 […]

Post-playoff numbness

I’ve given myself more than a day to recover from that Game 7 loss to the Celtics in Boston, and it still feels like my emotions are packed in a block of ice, Encino Man-style. I probably will always remember that game not for the poor shooting, the turnovers, the many botched defensive assignments/rotations, or […]

Game 7: Wakeup call

Well, that was a bummer. The Celtics shut us down (39 percent). They also enforced their will in the paint (44 points). Eddie House lit us up (16 points, 5-for-5 from the field, 4-for-4 from three). So did Brian Scalabrine, sort of (8 points, 2-for-3 from downtown). Ben Gordon was broke (7-for-23). The Bulls never […]

Game 6: Are you kidding me?!

No, seriously…are you kidding me?! I don’t even know where to begin. Really. I have no freaking idea. Remember that scene in The Princess Bride when Inigo Montoya said: “Let me ‘splain. [pause] No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Buttercup is marry’ Humperdinck in a little less than half an hour. So all […]

Rondo’s foul and other thoughts

The ruling is in: NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson believes that Rondo’s ear-boxing of Brad Miller was just a plain old foul. Said Stu: “We felt Rondo was making a basketball play and going for the ball after a blown defensive assignment by the Celtic team. In terms of the criteria […]
