Some thoughts on Bulls-Clippers

So we all know already that the Bulls’ next two games — against the beatable (read that: terrible) Clippers (10-34) and Kings (10-36) — are the team’s best (read that: only) chances to avoid returning home on February 10th (versus the Pistons) with an 11-game losing streak and a mob of angry fans rioting outside […]

Superman III: Starring Tyrus Thomas

I already posted a video of T-Time’s amazing In-Your-Face-Disgrace over Jermaine “The Drain” O’Neal, but the gentlemen at Didn’t Draw Iron added a nice little visual effect to that brutal posterization. So, with all due respect to Supermen I and II (Shaq and Dwight Howard), here’s Superman III* (via Ball Don’t Lie): *For the record, I think […]

Larry Hughes trade scenarios

The Bulls have run into a problem in their mission to dump Larry Hughes and his ginormous contract, the problem being: Nobody wants him. But, to me, that simply means John Paxson isn’t trying hard enough. That’s where I come in, because some times the best Trade Machine…is the human mind. To: The Bueller family. […]

That’s as good a place as any to start the discussion on the team’s woes, which include too many turnovers, poor defense and the inability to execute even […]

More than just a flesh wound

With away games against the Suns, Rockets, Hornets and Mavericks looming darkly on the horizon like the creeping shadows of Mordor – yes, it’s a Tolkien reference, deal with it – this weekend’s two matchups were about as critical as they come. Friday’s game against the Raptors was the Bulls’ last at home until February 10th while Sunday’s battle with the Timberwolves was the first of […]

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune: “Poor late-game execution once again doomed the Bulls, whose season-long losing streak extended to five games after a 109-108 overtime loss to the Timberwolves. Leading by as many as 16 in the first quarter and shooting 57.6 percent through three quarters, the Bulls collapsed down the stretch by shooting […]

Raptors-Bulls: At a glance

The result: The Raptors (17-28) snapped their seven-game losing streak at the Bulls’ (18-26) expense, blowing the home team out by the score of 114-94.
