Bears Dan Wiederer at the Chicago Tribune interviews Bears head coach Mark Trestman. Its pretty evident that Trestman is reticent about talking relationships with individual players. But ask him about team building and you get a soliloquy. I thought this section was particularly interesting: "And when we play on Sundays, if the talent is the same throughout the league — which it arguably is — which games ar ...

Maximizing the Potential of McDermott

Doug McDermott is a Chicago Bull, get used to it. The Bulls took a huge risk trading picks 16 and 19 in the draft and a 2015 second-round pick to the Denver Nuggets for Dougie McBuckets and Anthony Randolph (whose $1.8 million contract was thrown into the deal to sweeten the pot even more for the Nuggets).
