Memo to Pax: Just say “No” to Amare

If you can believe the NBA rumor mill, the Phoenix Suns have apparently jammed a “Yard Sale” sign in front of Amare Stoudemire’s locker. It seems that Suns GM Steve Kerr has finally realized that, despite Amare’s wicked-awesome talent and immense athleticism, he’s still a big man without a post move who couldn’t protect the paint (short of the occasional high-flying swat) if his […]

I’ll take it

You know, a lot of people predicted that the Bulls would come back from their Western Conference road trip with an 11-game losing streak, particularly after they kicked the journey off with an overtime loss (of the “fourth-quarter collapse” variety) to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Instead, the team will return to the United Center on Tuesday for Johnny “Red” Kerr Night after a 4-3 […]

Fresh ink: February 5, 2009

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune: “When Tyrus Thomas played here last season, he purchased approximately 100 tickets and sent them to his mother for distribution. But he still had to deal with the inherent stress of who got what. Not this season. ‘I’m not doing that again,’ the Baton Rouge, La., native said, shaking […]

Not all losses are created equal

I was hesitant to admit this in the game preview, but my gut told me it was unlikely that the Bulls would (or even could) extend their longest winning streak in almost two years on the road against a quality opponent. They’ve made progress on this seven-game Western Conference safari, there’s no doubt about it. But the NBA is a “baby steps” league, […]

Superman III: Starring Tyrus Thomas

I already posted a video of T-Time’s amazing In-Your-Face-Disgrace over Jermaine “The Drain” O’Neal, but the gentlemen at Didn’t Draw Iron added a nice little visual effect to that brutal posterization. So, with all due respect to Supermen I and II (Shaq and Dwight Howard), here’s Superman III* (via Ball Don’t Lie): *For the record, I think […]

Raptors-Bulls: At a glance

The result: The Raptors (17-28) snapped their seven-game losing streak at the Bulls’ (18-26) expense, blowing the home team out by the score of 114-94. The good: Well…the earth didn’t open up and swallow the Bulls. So there’s that, I guess. Oh, and Tyrus had a highlight reel dunk over Jermaine O’Neal: The bad: Suffering […]

Et tu, Ben?

I was halfway through my “Let’s try to stay positive everybody!” post when I read about Ben Gordon’s tiff with Vinny Del Negro. (More details in today’s fresh ink). The gist of it is that Ben, upset over a fine levied because he was late for a team flight, lodged a strongly worded (of the four-letter variety) complaint with Vinny in […]

Trending downward

When I started this blog, I decided to write a short recap of every game the Bulls have played this season. To be completely honest, I just wanted to generate some content because the site is brand new. I figured it would be give readers something to look at. However, reading summaries and perusing box scores for 40+ […]

Hawks-Bulls: At a glance

The result: The Hawks (25-16) beat the Bulls (18-25) in Chicago by the score of 105-102. The good: The Bulls pounded the glass like they were Ivan Drago and the poor ball was Apollo Creed (“What are you guys doing?! This is supposed to be an exhibition!!”): They won the rebounding battle 48-34 and ripped down 20 offensive […]

Final Result: The Bulls (18-24) lost to the Knicks (16-24) by the score of 102-98. The Good: Derrick Rose had a strong game with 20 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 2 blocked shots. Chicago’s starting big men played like, well, big men – Vinny Del Negro got double-doubles out of both Tyrus Thomas (19 […]
