Okay, now it’s Bosh to Chicago…

The latest in completely unsubstantiated trade rumors involving the Bulls has Chris Bosh coming to Chicago in a three-team deal. The other particulars are Amare Stoudemire going to the Toronto Raptors with the Phoenix Suns getting Drew Gooden’s Expiring Contract (worth $7.2 million off the books this summer), Tyrus Thomas and a first-round draft pick (plus some other random […]

Fresh ink: February 17, 2009

Brian Hanley of the Chicago Sun-Times: “The Amare Stoudemire trade talk still has the Bulls among the teams most involved, but a new scenario making the rounds has the Bulls taking part in a three-team deal that would bring Toronto Raptors star Chris Bosh to Chicago. The rumored swap would send Stoudemire to Toronto and […]

What does your game say?

Check out this new Michael Jordan “commercial” (via TrueHoop via Docksquad Sports). Note the utter lack of Jordan-as-a-Wizard highlights. I’m so glad that our society as a whole simply pretends that whole thing never happened. Kind of like the Nazi moon base of World War II.

The Skills Challenge

Tony Parker, Mo Williams and Devin Harris might be All-Stars, but none of them were better than Derrick Rose in the 2009 Skills Challenge. And honestly, Derrick made winning look pretty easy. (He never needed more than two attempts at any station in either round. Half the time, it takes me at least that many […]

The Rookie Challenge

In his Rookie Challenge preview, David Thorpe said: “If Rose didn’t have to fly in after his Thursday night game, I’d expect him to dominate much of the action with his dribble-attack game. Or his improved midrange game. Plus his acrobatic finishes at the rim. But since he plays so many minutes for the Bulls, […]

Congratulations, Shanon

I swear this isn’t (only) a gratuitous picture of Luvabulls dancer Shanon Lersch. It’s actually meaningful, because Shanon — the Luvabulls’ team captain — was selected to join dancers from 10 other NBA teams in a pictorial featured in the the 2009 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Go check them out in SI.com’s Web gallery. Feel free to […]

Melissa Isaacson of the Chicago Tribune: “Given two chances in the final 6.5 seconds to defeat the Bulls on Thursday night at the United Center, the Miami Heat knew precisely what it was doing the second time around. Watching what the Bulls did not do defensively on Miami’s previous inbounds play, the Heat was smarter […]

Well, that stung a little

To borrow a line from Clerks: Shawn Marion wasn’t even supposed to be here today! But I’m getting ahead of myself. Last night after work, I met up with Graydon Gordian of 48 Minutes of Hell at a little dive called Stocks & Blondes. We shared three buckets of beer, a couple plates of random […]

That whole rosin powder thing

When LeBron started that whole ”throw rosin powder in the air and jump into it” thing, it was pretty obvious that he (in conjunction with LRMR Marketing) had made the conscious decision to imitate Michael Jordan while also upping the drama of the moment, no doubt in the continuing effort to reach his “ultimate goal” of becoming a “global icon.” My initial […]
