Game 24 Recap: Bulls 110, Raptors 93

I’ve never felt so bummed after a team I’m rooting for just won in a blowout. As many of you already know, Joakim Noah is scheduled to have surgery this morning. The procedure will repair a torn ligament in his right thumb, which means a lengthy vacation for Noah. In NBA terms. And Chicago fans thought […]

In short, Cleveland is a championship-caliber team. The Bulls are not. The Toronto […]

A trade rumor I could get behind

Trapped by the Raptors

Me and my big metaphorical mouth. Yesterday on Basketbawful, I made what was, in retrospect, a rather rash and foolish statement regarding Philadelphia’s loss to the Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen-less Celtics: “The defeat will almost certainly cost the Sixers the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs (unless the Bulls lose at home to the Raptors […]
