The Chicago Bulls have surprised quite a few people this season.  They're 27-17 right now, and they've done it without their best player Derrick Rose.  Carlos Boozer has been one of the main guys to step up in his absence averaging 15.8 points and 9.7 rebounds.  Boozer showed last night against the Charlotte Bobcats that he can still jump with the young bucks.  He came off a pick and roll and threw down a huge left handed dunk over Bismack Biyombo.   The announcers went off, and Stacey King had a funny line when he told  Biyombo to "Get on the Booze Cruise."  No offense Stacey, but the last thing he needs after that leg shaker is a drink.  Check out the video below.

POTD 1/28/13: Carlos Boozer on Bismack Biyombo

With a couple of exceptional one-handed jams thrown down by Harrison Barnes and Carlos Boozer, there was yet another tough call to be made today.  I decided to put this one to a vote, and my friends from the InsideHoops forums chose Boozer by an 8-2 tally.  I’m pretty surprised that the polling didn’t turn up a tighter race, but I don’t necessarily disagree with the result...

How Good Is This Bulls Team?

The Chicago Bulls entered this season with a dark cloud hanging over their heads.  Derrick Rose was unavailable until further notice. Crucial role players, including C.J. Watson, John Lucas III, Ronnie Brewer, and Omer Asik had all left to pursue more money, and more playing time, elsewhere.  The year had already been a dry one in Chicago. The Cubs finished with fewer than 70 wins...

Is Ray Lewis’ Hairline Sprayed on? (Photos)

Reminiscent of Carlos Boozer’s sprayed on hairline of last year, Ray Lewis has opted for a similar solution to fight the battle against Father time. A hilarious story which was picked up from Larry Brown Sports focused on the utter ‘perfection’ that was Lewis’ hairline as he addressed the media on Monday. Let us remember that Lewis is 37 going on 38, so this is not a knock...

Derrick Rose Taking Full Contact

Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday that Derrick Rose is now taking “full contact” and the only thing left in his return from ACL surgery is putting in more time and then getting acclimated to a game situation. “He’s full contact, yeah,” Thibodeau said before Wednesday’s morning shoot-around as the Bulls prepared to face the Milwaukee Bucks. “He can...

Bobcats Well Scouted – Fall to the Bulls

Yes, Mr. Cho, plan, strategize, find the next big move for us...and make it a big man You know how everyone keeps saying that we need a big man or 2 to really help out in the paint?  No?  Perhaps you’ve noticed in the box scores that all of our points come from the Guards and seldom do our big men have to score all that much?  No?  Does anyone remember Coach Dunlap saying...
