Dwight Howard? Really?

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports writes that the Los Angeles Lakers might have the best shot at trading for Dwight Howard…but the Bulls are also quietly in contention: What’s more, the Chicago Bulls are still a sleeper for Howard, several league executives believe. “Chicago may tell Orlando to take any two players – or three […]

And things get much worse: Magic 111, Bulls 82

Realistically, the Bulls didn’t have much of a chance to beat the Magic. Orlando came into the game on a six-game winning streak, while Chicago stumbled into the Magic’s Kingdom on a season-worst five-game skid. The Bulls were without Joakim Noah (plantar fasciitis in his left foot) and Luol Deng (strained calf muscle), and both […]

“Loving” it Live

Ugh. Double ugh. Triple ugh. Etc. The Bulls have lost a season-worst five games in a row. Joakim Noah is out (plantar fasciitis). Luol Deng is expected to miss at least the next two games with a Grade 1 or 2 calf strain. Brad Miller (thumb) and Taj Gibson (plantar fasciitis) both missed practice yesterday, and Taj […]

Not a chance: Magic 107, Bulls 87

I’m not quite sure what to say about this loss. For all intents and purposes, the game ended two minutes and 24 seconds into the first quarter. That’s when Derrick Rose drove the basket, elevated, ran into Orlando’s Dwight Howard, and fell. Hard. Probably not the way Derrick wanted to celebrate his selection to the […]

Four in a row: Bulls 101, Magic 93

Again I say: who are these guys and what have they done with the Chicago Bulls? Or maybe the team we’ve been watching most of the season — the same one that coughed up a 35-point lead at home to the Sacramento Kings — was the imposter. Maybe now that Tyrus Thomas is back from injury and […]

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’ […]

Mauled by the Magic

From “A Game To Remember” to “A Game I Want To Forget As Soon As Humanly Possible” in less than 48 hours. Losing to Dwyane Wade’s superhuman performance was painful, sure, but it provided some small sense of hope. I mean, it took a handful of mini-miracles from an MVP-caliber player to beat the Bulls. That had to […]
