When putting together a basketball team, unless you’re fortunate enough to have a star like LeBron James or Kevin Durant, the most traditional approach to take is to build the team around the two rarest and most valuable pieces a team can have: a great point guard and a great big man. And when you look around the NBA, there’s just not many “greats” at either of those positions. Everybody knows the Chicago Bulls have the point guard to build a team around in homegrown superstar and MVP Derrick Rose. However, not many people give them credit for having a top-of-the-line big man, which, they may indeed have currently blossoming in the windy city.

Thibodeau added that he would like...

Last night the Houston Rockets put a hurting on the Chicago Bulls. It was painful. But not as painful as this missed dunk attempt by this Santa Claus at halftime. I don’t think it was very merry for Father Christmas here. Watch below:
