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...
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.
Former Celtic and NBA Dunk Contest champ Nate Robinson had a pretty sweet dunk during last night's Bulls-Bucks game. Stacey King (who played 5 games for the C's), was doing commentary on the game and goes nuts after Nate's dunk, mentioning that he has been waiting for little Nate Robinson to dunk this year.
I would love to see Nate Robinson in the dunk contest this year...
Nate Robinson explodes to the rim for a one handed dunk off a back door cut during the Bulls victory over the Bucks on Wednesday evening. It was the 5’9” 3x dunk champion’s first dunk since the 2010-2011 season as he is heard yelling after the throw down “I want my money” to Rip Hamilton who he made a bet with that he would have one this year:
Robinson was a late Bulls addition this season and said he wasn’t concerned before Thibodeau contacted him as he thought he’d play in the NFL this season if he didn’t land with and NBA.
It’s Nate’s world.
”I was going to (try for a) tryout (with the Seahawks) and play football,” said Robinson. “If no team wanted me for basketball I was going to play football.”
The plea from Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng to British Prime Minister David Cameron has worked: Funding will be restored to the country's Olympic basketball program.
Britain's men's and women's basketball squads were told in December they'd receive no funding for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. UK Sport distributes the money and on Friday said basketball...
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...
Nate Robinson scored 16 of his 24 points in the second quarter, leading the Chicago Bulls to a 104-88 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
Jimmy Butler, a second-year pro from Marquette, had 18 points and five rebounds in a return to the arena where he played college basketball.
Samuel Dalembert had 14 points and a season-high 13 rebounds for the Bucks. Ersan Ilyasova...
MILWAUKEE -- There would be no comeback this time. After surrendering double-digits leads in their last two losses against Milwaukee, the Chicago Bulls put a halt to every attempt at a surge Wednesday, holding on to beat the Bucks 104-88 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Nate Robinson scored 16 of his game-high 24 points in the second quarter, and five other Bulls players scored...
Celtics (37-13) vs. Chicago (18-33)
January 29, 1980
The Celtics continued to build some momentum before the All Star break with a 103-99 victory in Chicago over Jerry Sloan’s Bulls.
The win was anything but easy. A 23-minue delay in the third quarter due to a broken clock allowed Bill Fitch some extra time to devise a plan to pick apart the Bulls’ defense...
