Rose being sued for missed season?

Video: Deron Williams no-looks to Brook Lopez for the smash dunk

The Brooklyn Nets saw to it that the Chicago Bulls had a rough night on Saturday. Game 1 of their Eastern Conference playoff series was not a game as much as it was a beating. The 106-89 score does not even do much justice to how poorly Chicago played on Saturday. The sloppy, uneven mess was uninspired as they allowed Deron Williams and Brook Lopez to score a combined  43...

Rip Hamilton needed two U-Haul trucks to move his sneakers (Video)

Chicago Bulls guard Richard "Rip" Hamilton apparently had so many shoes in his home that he had to fill two U-Haul trucks to move them somewhere else. We're taking his word for it based on the photo Hamilton posted on his Instagram account which shows one of the trucks filled to the ceiling with shoe boxes. The real question that needs to be answered is who has...

In the SNL version of the story, John Tesh (played by cast member Jason Sudeikis) brings his brother Dave (played by Tim Robinson) to present the song to some NBC executives, and Dave provides a different dimension...

Bulls Won’t Rule Out Derrick Rose Returning for Playoffs

This is why fat guys are suing Derrick Rose for depression. I don’t think the majority of people have a real problem with Rose sitting out for the entire year. A lot of people think it is the smart way to go. I believe fans get annoyed though, when the Bulls release comments like this. “He’s most likely out but you never know,” Thibodeau said. “The playoffs are stretched...

Keys to a Chicago Bulls victory in the first round

Pitted against a Nets team that is making its first appearance in the playoffs under the bright lights of Brooklyn, the Bulls face a tough task in securing a victory against their first round opponents. While Tom Thibodeau pushes his squad to the brink of exhaustion (and often over), he often gets the most he can out of his players. With some favorable matchups and an everlasting...

Bulls’ Joakim Noah could miss opening round

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah returned for the team’s regular season finale, playing limited minutes off the bench in preparation for the playoffs. There was thought that he could fill a similar role as the postseason began, but now there’s question if he’ll participate in the first round at all, according to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago.The Bulls are considering Noah as day...

Nets Joe Johnson asks court to move paternity suit date because of playoffs

The Brooklyn Nets seem to have a potential foe that will knock them out of the playoffs before the first jump ball is called. Nets guard Joe Johnson, like his teammate, Kris Humphries legal obligations are in direct conflict with the playoffs. Kris settled his divorce suit with Kim Kardashian and now Nets Joe Johnson is attempting to reschedule his legal obligation until after the...

Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries finally divorced

A year and 8 months after the wedding and almost one year and six months after filing for divorce, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are single again. Kris basically walked away with everything he entered into the situation with, no annulment, no settlement money but at least he has his last name back… wait did she even utilize it? Of course, the details are confidential, but...

Rose's absence requires answers

No more excuses. The time for Derrick Rose to stand up and come forward is right now. That became self-evident Saturday night, when a Chicago Bulls team lacking its star player and worn weary by a season without him was utterly overwhelmed by the Brooklyn Nets, 106-89, in the opener of their seven-game series. So much wrong with this Bulls team was on display. Head coach Tom Thibodeau...
