Deng the Destroyer (of Bosnia and Herzegovina)

Thanks to their 94-85 overtime win over Bosnia and Herzegovina, Great Britain improved their record to 6-1 and earned a spot in next year’s European Championships. I know stats can lie, but I’m pretty sure that victory wouldn’t have been possible without Luol Deng’s 38 points and 13 rebounds. Said Deng: “I just wanted to come out […]

Ranking Luol Deng

According to Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo!’s Ball Don’t Lie, Luol Deng is the eight-best small forward in the NBA, behind LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Gerald Wallace, Andre Iguodala, Danny Granger and Paul Pierce. Here’s Dwyer’s commentary: “After a year or two in the wilderness, Luol finally got his wits about him in 2009-10, […]

Forget about Carmelo Anthony…

As you probably already know, Carmelo Anthony is available…insomuch as he has yet to sign a contract extension with the Nuggets and reportedly wants out of Denver. Since this news broke, ESPN’s Trade Machine has been getting worked so hard it just applied for the witness protection program. Naturally, one of the hot rumors is a potential ‘Melo-to-Chicago […]

Bulls limping toward the end

Amid speculation that coach Vinny Del Negro could be standing in an unemployment line as early as tomorrow — said Joakim Noah: “How about we just focus on the game tomorrow and see what happens.

Game 3: Bulls 108, Cavaliers 106

The Bulls snuck into the NBA playoffs on the final day of the regular season. Given the number of injuries and the amount of drama they went through during that 82-game gulag, that accomplishment was nothing short of amazing. However, their efforts merely earned them the right to face soon-to-be-MVP LeBron James and his league-best Cleveland […]

Game 2: Cavaliers 112, Bulls 102

The Bulls nearly played a perfect game last night. No, they didn’t shoot the ball well — 44 percent as a team, including 4-for-13 from three-point range — but they’ve been a limited offensive team all season. (And in some ways, “limited” is being generous.) However, the Bulls scrapped hard enough to make their fans proud. Chicago reversed […]

Loul Deng: Hurting

More bad injury news for the Bulls: Luol Deng — Chicago’s primary LeBron James defender — is hurting. Again. Or still. Or whatever. Said Deng: “I don’t feel good at all. The calf strain took a lot out of me. And it’s still bothering me. I missed 12 games, but I wanted to get back into it […]

James Johnson: Talkin’ tough

Since I’ve posted lots of injury news for various Bulls players this season — Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, rookie Taj Gibson, etc. — it seems only fair to give the other rookie his due. To wit: James Johnson started and logged 25 minutes in last night’s game against the Pistons despite a partially torn plantar fascia […]
