The Chi-Town Shake Up

This was supposed to be Chicago’s year. Their former MVP, Derrick Rose, was coming back fully healthy from another ACL tear. The team signed Pau Gasol, who has championship pedigree.

Why Optimism With The Bulls Next Season Is Okay

Having to watch another quality season go down the drain is tough for Chicago Bulls fans and has begun to pull at that compulsion that maybe it’s time to blow the whole thing up and start from scratch.

Doug McDermott: “I trust The Bulls Organization To Make The Right Hire”

Doug McDermott probably thought he was in a great spot when he found out he would begin his NBA career with the Chicago Bulls. A top draft pick and on a contender? Seems ideal for any rookie who wants to play and was an elite scorer in college, especially with a team that finished last in scoring the year before. Poor, McDermott, he was completely wrong. I must admit, I bought in...

Tom Thibodeau’s expiration date has passed

When a milk carton sits in your fridge for a while, you always check the expiration date because you don’t want the sour taste that comes once it passes your lips. That was the feeling I had Thursday night at Game 6 in the meeting between the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Chicago Bulls bid farewell to the playoffs and the will to win

I like to think I know a good deal about basketball. I’m not an amazing NBA Historian. I can’t tell you Michael Jordan’s season averages from 1997 like some sports writers can. But I do pride myself in knowing how the league works today, what teams are good, and what teams are bad. So how was I so wrong in thinking the Bulls were a championship-caliber team? I know sometimes...

The Bulls, Fred Hoiberg, Tom Thibodeau and rumor vs. reality

Injured, banged up, with rumors of an impending firing of Tom Thibodeau whenever the season was to be over, the Chicago Bulls are no longer in the NBA playoffs. Sad face, right? Well, maybe not if you are management, which has reportedly been wanting to fire Thibodeau when the season was over.

With their backs up against the wall against the Cavaliers on Thursday night, the Bulls looked like the fat and/or skinny kid in dodgeball. Despite Cleveland missing two of its top three players — one of them for the entire series — Chicago proved to be a much easier out than anyone could have imagined, meekly ending their season in a 94-73 Game 6 loss.
