Do the Bulls suffer when Thomas and Noah play together?

As part of the TrueHoop Network 2009-10 Season Preview, Henry Abbott published a post about shooting. How does this affect the Bulls? Well, as Henry explains, stat guru Wayne Winston theorizes that “a consistent theme of many bad NBA lineups is that they include two or more players who can’t shoot.” Can you think of any starting […]

Preseason Game Five: Bulls vs. Timberwolves

Let’s hear it for your 4-1 Chicago Bulls. Can we carry over the preseason record? No, probably not. Anywhere, here are some high and lowlights from last night’s 99-94 road win over the Timberwolves.

Joakim Noah: Lovin’ the offseason

Any defeat-related agony that Joakim suffered over that Game 7 loss to the Celtics is apparently long forgotten. He can now be found in beautiful St. Barts, surfing, clowning, drinking, flexing Hulk Hogan-style, burying people in sand and (NSFW) frollicking in the ocean with busty, topless beach babes.

Game 6: Are you kidding me?!
