Chicago Bulls Struggle in Season Opening Loss to Miami Heat

The Chicago Bulls were obviously going to be rusty. There was no question about that. Derrick Rose returned for the first time in over 550 days. The Bulls' starting played together for the first time ever. There was going to be rust. Against the Miami Heat however, you can't have that. Instead of coming in and upsetting the defending champs like so many hoped they would, Chicago allowed Miami to go on a 17- ...

George Hill takes offense to Rose’s comments

After the butt kicking the Bulls gave the Pacers last Friday night, Rose was asked about the rivalry between the two central division teams by everyone’s favorite Bulls insider, Nick Friedell. Here’s what Rose had to say: “People say that it's a rivalry, but I don't really see it. I say the team that is more like a rivalry is when Darren Collison was on the team. That one was more like a rivalry, but this t ...

Four predictions for the 2013-2014 NBA season

The wait is finally over. We can finally wash the taste of another LeBron ring out of our mouths and forget that Ray Allen three pointer ever happened. An irregularly active offseason (along with the final series of Breaking Bad, of course) made the three months since the season ended go by fast. We saw Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce get shipped to Brooklyn, Doc Rivers take over the Clips, Anthony Bennett ta ...

Love to hate the Heat

Insecurities are a (insert expletive here). Most of us deal with them on a daily basis. We are insecure about our appearance, our careers, our finances and our relationships. In my opinion, that’s all normal and something we as humans naturally deal with. And having insecurities about your favorite sports team is normal too because, let’s face it, not every team is always winning championships. Teams have b ...

Derrick Rose is Bulls #1 asset, versitility is a close second

Derrick Rose is the Chicago Bulls’ greatest asset. That’s not an opinion, it’s a fact. But believe me, I’ve came across some who believe the Bulls are better off without him. Yeah, if there was ever a time to call someone basketball stupid, that is that time.  I don’t have to waste our time by explaining to you all, my readers, why Rose is the Bulls’ greatest asset. You are all smart. I know that because yo ...

The Bulls decision to stand pat this summer could come back to haunt them

Sometimes in life it’s better to stand pat. Whether it’s backing down from someone who could clearly take you in a fight or folding on a big hand of poker, there are certainly situations where the best choice is to quit while you’re ahead. The 2013-14 Chicago Bulls are not one of those instances. OK, maybe if the Bulls were the defending champs or at least runner ups than I could understand the front office ...

With Robinson gone, Teague needs to step up: other notes on Camby, Bulls-Heat opening day

I know Derrick Rose will be back next year, but I still can’t help but think the Bulls will regret this. On Monday the Bulls let yet another quality bench player leave via free agency when Robinson signed a two-year, $4 million deal with the Denver Nuggets. Yes, the same guy that was second on the team in PER (17.4), fourth on the team in win shares (5.9), and had one of the best performances in Bulls playo ...

Despite controversial no-calls, Spurs handed Heat historic Game 6 win

In the 2011 World Series, the Texas Rangers were one strike away from defeating the St. Louis Cardinals not once, but twice. After a couple of hits, that one strike eventually turned into a legendary walk off home run for the Cardinals’ David Freese and the rest was history. The Spurs just like the Rangers were one strike away from a title heading into the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the NBA Finals leading ...

Why the Miami Heat’s Struggles are a Good Sign for the Chicago Bulls

With star point guard Derrick Rose out this season, the Chicago Bulls were playing with house money during the 2012-13 season. They were not expected to go far in the playoffs, or especially get past their main competition, the Miami Heat, without Derrick Rose playing at 110 percent. However with Rose scheduled to return next season, and Miami showing major cracks in the armor, Chicago may be closer to a ti ...
