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. Guys who looked good: The Player of the Game? Actually, it might have been…Chris Richard. No, really. Richard came off the […]

Preseason Game Four: Bucks vs. Bulls

The Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 87-86 at the UC last night. I’ll take it. After all, Chicago was playing without three of its big guns. Oh, and it’s the preseason. Guys who looked good: Okay, Joakim Noah was the Player of the Game…but first let me say a few words about Taj Gibson. I’ve […]

The Bulls are getting along splendidly

Last week, I said it seems like the players on this year’s Bulls squad really like each other. Well, I must have been onto something, because Mike McGraw of the Daily Heraldjust wrote an article about how much the players really like each other: “Since training camp began, players have been emphasizing how well they’ve […]

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. I guess “working on my post game during the offseason” […]

Game 6: Are you kidding me?!

No, seriously…are you kidding me?! I don’t even know where to begin. Really. I have no freaking idea. Remember that scene in The Princess Bride when Inigo Montoya said: “Let me ‘splain. [pause] No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Buttercup is marry’ Humperdinck in a little less than half an hour. So all […]

Game 5: What a waste

Early on in this series, I could have accepted and might even have been pleased with a moral victory. But that was then, and right now all I can see is a wasted opportunity that — in my mind, if not yet in fact — cost my team its last best chance of advancing to […]

So close to 2-0! And yet so far…

Holy crap! You wanted playoff drama, you got playoff drama. This game had everything: Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles… Okay, okay. That was actually The Princess Bride. But this game sure had its share of fairytale-like elements. A proud but ailing champion. A fierce and determined underdog. Mortal combat. […]

D-Rose vs. the World (Champions)

On Friday, Zach Lowe of Celtics Hub revealed: “Rose scares me. … If Derrick Rose can break down the defense either through one-on-one penetration or screen/rolls, I worry that as the C’s big men help, Thomas and Noah will be able to find the right spots on the floor before Davis/Powe/Perkins can get back to […]

Fresh ink: April 5, 2009

Kurt Helin of NBC Los Angeles: “Remember back around the All Star break, when Bulls were an unmitigated disaster? Rose looked like a rookie — a promising rookie, but one who turned the ball over and was still learning to play in the clutch. The team gave away fourth quarter leads like Jim Cramer gives […]
