Boozer needs Korver: Follow-up

Editor’s note: The following comment was written by By The Horns reader uber_snotling in response to the Carlos Boozer needs more Kyle Korver post.

Carlos Boozer needs more Kyle Korver

During the Pacers-Bulls series, Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau called Boozer a “lightning rod.” When things are going poorly, Booz gets the boos. That’s life. Derrick Rose can go 11-for-27, miss seven of eight three-pointers and commit 8 turnovers but get a pass. He’s already earned respect from the fans. Boozer? Not so much. He can’t […]

Game 3 Recap: Bulls 88, Pacers 84

Danny Granger got his wish. Before the series, Granger (rather infamously) said: “Chicago, they go as Derrick Rose goes.

Kyle Korver: Team Chemistry = Good

From SLAM: “I think we’re going to be really good. We didn’t land the “big name” pieces, but we got a lot of pieces that fit really well together and at the end of the day I think chemistry is something that’s really overlooked and I think it’s going to be one of our strongest […]
