How much for Ben Gordon?!

The Off-Season Easy-Bake Rumor Oven continues to cook up some tasty treats. Here’s the latest. According to Sam Smith of Bulls.com: “Gordon’s agent allegedly has been saying he has an $11 million promise from the Pistons.” Wow. That’s a lot of money. Unless Gordon’s agent means $11 million in Schrute Bucks…which I highly doubt. And here […]

Moving past the Pistons

What a crazy, wild, unthinkable ride this season has been. A few months ago, the Chicago Bulls were an awful mess. GM John Paxson was accused of mismanaging the team and at one point was rumored to be stepping down in semi-disgrace. Vinny Del Negro was declared a coaching bust; people were calling for his […]

A bad time to be hurtin’

I know it’s simply life in the NBA — just ask the Boston Celtics – but this sure is a lousy time for so many Bulls players to be banged up: John Salmons (left groin), Kirk Hinrich (sprained left ankle), Derrick Rose (bruised wrist), Tyrus Thomas (sore shoulder and flu-like symptoms) and Tim Thomas (back spasms) are all […]

It was the first missed game of […]

NBA.com staff reporters: “Sorry, Detroit Pistons. But it just wasn’t gonna happen. Not on Johnny ‘Red’ Kerr’s big night. And Ben Gordon made sure of that. On the night Kerr received the 2009 Hall of Fame Bunn Award for over 35 years of contributions to Chicago as a player, coach, administrator and broadcaster, the Bulls […]

An awesome ending to a special night

Let me start off by saying that tonight’s game against the Pistons was a footnote to Johnny “Red” Kerr’s moving halftime tribute (which you can watch again or for the first time at Comcast SportsNet Chicago). It’s probably the closest I’ll ever come to not caring about whether the Bulls win or lose. (But not really; I […]
