2013-14 Year in Review: Tom Thibodeau

Tim Thibodeau’s 2014 coaching season can be summed up in five words uttered by Ivan Drago in Rocky IV: “If he dies, he dies.” Thibodeau’s constant push for more effort, more intensity and more wins from his roster finally reached a kind of breaking point with many fans, though his players never wavered in public.

2013-2014 Player Review: Derrick Rose

Player: Derrick Rose Per game stats: Irrelevant- a small 10 game sample size during which Rose was rusty is not worth bringing up The Good: It’s hard to find any good in a season that was as short as Derrick Rose’s was, but the major (and only) positive is that was regaining some semblance of his […]

Jimmy Butler swagged out

2013-14 Year in Review: Jimmy Butler

Let’s get the obvious out of the way immediately: Jimmy Butler did not have a great season. And that is most likely an understatement.

Tony Snell

2013-14 Year in Review: Tony Snell

Tony Snell’s rookie season was not a terribly smooth one. He spent the first 12 games or so barely playing, then was suddenly thrust into the starting lineup, then became something of a key bench cog, then went back to not playing very much. His calling card coming in was his shooting, something that never […]
