Some Bulls draft thoughts

With the NBA draft two days away…I have no idea what to expect from the Bulls. Chicago has the 28th, 30th and 43rd picks. The team needs an athletic shooting guard who can create his own offense, nail jumpers from long range, and (of course) defend. That would basically complete the championship package. So how […]

Say goodbye to Captain Kirk and the 17th pick…say hello to cap space

Draft Day: LiveBlog-O-Rama-Rama

First things first. Shaq is officially off the board, and so is Scoop Jackson’s master plan for a Bulls roster featuring Derrick Rose, Tracy McGrady or Ben Gordon, John Salmons, Tyrus Thomas, Shaquille O’Neal; with a bench of Kirk Hinrich, Joakim Noah, DeJuan Blair, Wayne Ellington, Brad Miller, Anthony Roberson and DeMarcus Nelson.

Damaging drafts

We’re only one season into the Derrick Rose Era, and I think it’s pretty safe to say he was the right pick. Unfortunately, not every draft has been sunshine and puppy dogs for the Bulls. In fact, there have been some downright painful draft day failures over the last decade. Here are the worst. Jay […]
