Beyond The Buzzer:
Brian Scalabrine on ESPN Chicago Radio made some very strong statements regarding his former teammate Derrick Rose and the final four minutes of a basketball game:
“I believe Derrick Rose fresh, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, I would take at the end of a game, Derrick Rose, over those guys…over any player in the NBA. Last four minutes of a game, I would.
Have you ever seen things like getting double-teamed at halfcourt to get the ball out of his hands? Not even LeBron had seen that before. Derrick is so explosive … LeBron guards typically the worst offensive player which is understandable because he carries the load. Derrick Rose, defensively, he’s guarding the point guard. Most teams are aggressively running pick and roll. He’s fighting through picks. At the end of the game he’s carrying the team offensively, he’s running 60 pick and rolls.
My whole point is can Derrick Rose have enough in the tank at the end to sustain where I believe he is the best player in the world when healthy.”

Bulls big man Joakim Noah will no longer do his customary "six-shooter" celebration after scoring in light of the tragic events that occurred in Newtown.
League sources indicate that veteran shooting guard Richard Hamilton has been offered in trade scenarios, efforts that could intensity as the Feb. 21 trade deadline nears.
With a minimal guarantee on a team option for next season, Hamilton’s salary is in essence an expiring contract, which could make him attractive to teams looking to add scoring punch near the deadline.

Athletes across all major sports have recognized the Sandy Hook tragedy in a multitude of ways, ranging from paying respects on game-worn gear, to personal statements on social media. Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah is no exception, weighing in over the weekend about the shooting that took the lives of 27 innocent people, including 20 children. After Chicago’s 80-71 loss to the...
Joakim Noah‘s six-shooter celebration was always a little unsettling, especially considering the Bulls center plays in Chicago, where there is just way too much violence.
However, the Florida alum is putting away his guns for good, and he’s saying he now realizes that it’s insensitive, especially given recent events.
Noah says he’s done with the imaginary gun celebration...
Taj Gibson tweaked his ankle early in the Chicago Bulls' matchup against the Boston Celtics last night. Fortunately for the injury-riddled Bulls, Gibson was able to play through the pain and contribute a solid 13 points. Even better, the ankle shouldn't keep Gibson from playing Wednesday against the New York Knicks.According to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago, the ankle injury...
Not that the world was going to voice it’s outrage over Joakim Noah’s patented “Wild West” type finger guns celebration on the court, but instead of taking any chances of offending anyone after the horrific school shootings that took place last week in Connecticut, Noah has decided to retire his signature on-court celebration.
Noah’s gunslinger routine was a celebration...

In last night’s loss to the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo broke out some kicks that were definitely deserving of a win. Rondo debuted the Nike Air Foamposite One “Fighter Jet”, a sneaker that isn’t set to release until February 9th, 2013. This was the 4th time in 2012 that he wore a pair of Nike Air Foamposites on court. Below, check out some of...
Marquis Teague returned to the Bulls' bench on Monday after two strong games with Kirk Hinrich injured.
The Bulls may waive Nate Robinson and his non-guaranteed contract by Jan. 10 if Marquis Teague continues to play well in his extended minutes.
On Tuesday night the Celtics were in Chicago to take on the Bulls in the final game of their road trip. The Bulls were without their franchise player, Derrick Rose, but have still be solid this season fueled by their tenacious defense. The team also faces two familiar faces in former Celtic, Nate Robinson and former Celtic coach, Tom Thibodeau. Coming into tonight they looked...
Another game, another Celtics loss. It's not time to panic but I sure would love to see them get it together. Bulls fans display their usual Rondo hatred and there's the obligatory wheelchair mention. I've highlighted my favorites in bold. What are yours?
I don't know about tonight, but we will beat these dudes in the post season if we meet.
