CJ Watson Undergoes Foot Procedure

Derrick Rose isn't the only Bulls point guard to get work done this offseason. For the second summer in a row, CJ Watson has had a procedure done on both of his feet to address his plantar fasciitis. He played the entire season, including the playoffs, battling the injury. In the regular season he averaged 22 minutes per game, and with Rose out for the playoffs, averaged 28 minutes per game. Fortunately, he ...

2012 Was Never The Year Of The Bull, But We’ve Still Got Something To Root For

With 1:20 to go in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Playoff’s first round, Derrick Rose drove to the hoop, planted his feet and hit the floor. Rose tore the ACL in his left knee, all but ending the Bulls’ playoff run just as quickly as it had began. But let’s be honest with ourselves. Did anyone really believe this was the year the Bulls would overtake the Heat in the Eastern Conference, en route to hanging ...

Without Rose, Bulls Drop Game Two

With Derrick Rose lost for the season, the Bulls weren't ready to call it quits. Rose went down with a torn ACL with just over a minute to play in Saturday's 103-91 Game One victory in the team's opening round series with the Philadelphia 76ers. After the game, the mood in the locker room was not that of a team who had just kicked off their playoff run with a win. The Bulls were down, understandably, but ce ...

Bulls too Much for Suns

Derrick Rose was out again, but the Bulls had Watson and Richard Hamilton back in action. The Phoenix Suns are in some strange form of a rebuilding phase. Trying to both balance loyalty to veterans like Steve Nash and Grant Hill, with a mix of tall guys that can bring some one-dimension to the floor with any change on the floor. Needless to say, they have been little threat to any contending teams, but that ...

C.J. Watson Is Not an Option for Shooting Guard

One of the more perplexing rumors to come out of the Chicago Bulls offseason originated from Chicago Tribune report K.C. Johnson who wrote that guard C.J. Watsonmay be an option at shooting guard. Don't get me wrong. I think Watson is a fine backup point guard, but a starting shooting guard on a team looking to win an NBA championship he is not. Watson, in his first year with the Bulls after three seasons w ...

A New Era for NBA Shooting Guards And Why The Bulls Wont Sign One

The traditional shooting guard has slowly been going away in the NBA. Teams find themselves using more combo guards and point guards to cover their needs at the two. We also see a newer mold, that I would rather describe as a Shooting Forward, rather than the traditional swingman. Between rule changes and modern coaching styles, certain positions change. Sometimes there aren't enough players that fit a mold ...
