Chicago Bulls: Wade’s realism is necessary for Bulls organization

The Chicago Bulls haven’t even gotten to their 4th preseason game yet (they play tomorrow at home against the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT), and I already feel better about the direction of this team than I did all of last season. And it’s not, truthfully, because they look like legitimate NBA title contenders this season. Rather, it’s because someone in the Bulls organization f ...

Landing Dwyane Wade could set up the Bulls for a big future signing

Dwyane Wade signing with the Chicago Bulls is so crazy, so anti "younger and more athletic", so far from where the Bulls need to go in terms of building a competitive team for the long term...that it just might work. Yeah, that's right. You heard me. It just. Might. Work. Yes, it goes against everything the front office was preaching this offseason, especially after trading Derrick Rose to the New York Knic ...

Dwyane Wade signing brings new and needed excitement to Bulls

The sports world was shocked on July 6 when it was made known that Dwyane Wade would be leaving the Miami Heat, the team he has played with since being drafted in 2003, with whom he won three NBA championships. His new team? The Chicago Bulls. The Bulls became a contender for Wade late in the process, and despite the dreams (or potentially nightmares) of the Bulls faithful, most people thought that Wade wou ...

Rondo a change of pace, not a savior for Bulls

Love it or hate it, the Chicago Bulls certainly appear to have stabilized the point guard position after a tumultuous couple of weeks. Following their trade of former franchise cornerstone Derrick Rose, the Bulls acquired erstwhile Boston Celtic/Dallas Maverick/Sacramento King guard Rajon Rondo to presumably take over as the team’s floor general for the next two years. And in this new salary cap era, a two- ...

Bulls D-feat Celtics in Beantown

Derrick Rose returned to the line-up after missing the last game with turf toe. He hardly showed any sign of the injury in a match-up against a head-to-head position arch-rival, Rajon Rondo. The Celtics were showing their age in many ways all game long. At the start of the game, the Bulls outran the Celtics fairly well, holding them to only 13 points in the first quarter. It would have been 11 points, if no ...

The Chicago Bulls Bounce Boston Celtics as Rose Dominates Rondo

Unfortunately for the Bulls, on this night they would fall short in OT, 110-105. Losing back-to-back games is alwa ...

NBA Notes: Chicago Bulls Deng is a Link to the Past

Sometimes in sports we lose sight of the fact that the measure of success is not only winning championships. There are around 30 teams in every league and one championship for each year. The vast majority of teams and players will never achieve that ultimate goal. In the NBA, in particular, there is a tendency for repeat winners, as well. For every Larry Selke trophy that Kobe Bryant takes home, another 600 ...
