Taj Gibson’s contract has been extended

The Bulls celebrated Halloween with some very good news. And I’m not talking about their season-opening win over the Sacramento Kings. Taj Gibson and the Bulls have agreed to a four-year contract extension worth $38 million. So we don’t have to worry about Gibson pulling an Omer Asik next summer. Said Gibson: “You just do […]

Kings-Bulls Preview

I have an old video game, “The Lion King” for Super Nintendo. In the opening scene of the game, it begins with Timon saying “it starts.” But he isn’t excited about the start, he seems dejected, as if he knows what’s coming isn’t good (spoiler alert Mufassa dies). That’s how I feel about this Bulls […]

Bulls-Pacers Preseason Preview

It’s been an interesting preseason so far. Without Derrick Rose, it was obviously going to be fascinating to see what the Bulls did. But this has been curious for different reasons. First, it was interesting to find out that Carlos Boozer was still alive. Boozington has put in two straight good preseason games. As I’ve […]

Is a Luol Deng breakdown inevitable?

Luol Deng recently admitted he was planning to have surgery on the torn ligament in his left wrist…but then stated his rehab program had essentially solved any problems. Said Deng: “I had the injury before (in 2004), and for some reason, maybe because it was my first time and I first had it, it felt a […]

Preseason Game 6: Bulls 94, Thunder 89

The Thunder played without Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Translation:  Take this win with a grain of salt. Even by preseason standards. Still…it felt good to see Carlos Boozer have another strong game (24 points, 11-for-20, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals). In fact, the entire starting unit seemed to be really syncing up before […]

Bulls-Thunder Preseason Preview

The Bulls have won two straight preseason games, which if you’re counting at home means absolutely nothing. Especially considering their most recent win came against the Timberwolves who were playing without Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio. It’s going to be a lot tougher this time around. The Bulls take on the defending Western Conference champs, […]

Preseason Game 5: Bulls 92, Timberwolves 81

So…Carlos Boozer is alive after all. After going 13-for-37 over his first four preseason games — that’s 35.1 percent “accuracy” for those who enjoy simple math — Boozer finally broke out of basketball purgatory by shooting 10-for-17 from the field for his game-high 24 points. Boozington also added 9 boards, 4 assists and 4 steals […]

Preseason Game 4: Bulls 100, Bucks 94

After three consecutive offensive performances that put the “lack” in “lackluster,” the Bulls finally reached the century mark and notched their second preseason victory. Here’s what I noticed: Nate Robinson has energy: How many Red Bulls do you suppose Little Nate chugged down before the game? Five? Six? Robinson started at point guard because Kirk […]
