Bears 2014 Rookie Class Review

The Bears have 14 rookies on their roster right now. 12 of which have been on the roster for extended periods of time and have played. I know that it is early to look at the returns on a draft class, but this class has shown enough that I think it can be discussed. After so many drafts that we have preached patience, and wait 3 years, only to not have them pan out, so let’s look at a draft that appears to b ...

Shannon Scott Q & A

If you don't know who Shannon Scott is, he's that pesky, relentless defender on Ohio State that isn't Aaron Craft . Scott is entering his senior season with the Buckeyes and has already made consecutive Big Ten All-Defensive teams.

The complexity that is Pau Gasol’s twitter handle

Pau Gasol signed a 3-year, $22 million deal with Bulls this summer, and the love fest in Chicago has already commenced. Gasol is the big, seven foot presence the Bulls have been missing for years. Most importantly, Carlos Boozer will be screaming “Gimme Dat!” and “And One!” in another uniform. Gasol is off to a solid start, averaging 10.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3 blocks per game in the preseason. He’s a s ...

Three players poised to make “the leap” in the 2014-2015 NBA season

There’s a lot of questions going around about the NBA season this time of the year. Other than predicting an NBA champion, the biggest question mark is—who’s gonna make the leap this year?
