Chicago Bulls fans, already reeling from the loss of Derrick Rose for the 2012 NBA Playoffs due to a severe knee injury, will be crushed by the latest blog post from noted sports kinesiologist Zig Ziegler. After reviewing Rose’s injury history and game tape Ziegler pointed out the extreme risk of another injury Rose faces given his style of play:
Now, one thing to keep in mind...
With the Chicago Bulls’ only high-profile star sidelined due to injury, the Bulls/Sixers series will be bumped to ESPN2 on Friday night. Friday’s Game 3 of the Bulls/Sixers first round NBA playoff series has been moved from ESPN to ESPN2. The game will remain at 8 PM ET. As a result, Hawks/Celtics Game 3 has been moved from ESPN2 to ESPN. The game will remain at 7:30 PM ET. Unfortunately...
Yes, 76ers fans cheered Joakim Noah’s ankle injury during last night’s Game 3 against the Bulls. From the look of things these assholes are going to win this series by default and set up a tremendous 2nd round against Boston. The thought of these two teams and their fans meeting this year has us giddy.
Anyway, some guy was watching the end of last night’s game and caught this...
Joakim Noah injures ankle in Sixers win over Bulls
You never want to see someone get hurt, but there's no denying that went Derrick Rose fell to the floor last weekend that it helped the Celtics' title chances, even if just a little. With Rose out of the picture, the No. 1 Bulls are far from invincible, meaning the Eastern Conference is there for the taking. Sure, the Heat look good as they take a 3-0 series lead against...
If you consider the fact that reigning MVP Derrick Rose missed almost half the season to various injuries, the Chicago Bulls had a hell of a season. The Bulls still would've had a hell of a season even if Rose hadn't missed all those games. They finished with the same record as the San Antonio Spurs and looked great, especially on defense even when Rose was out. Much...
Your hustle was admirable, Luol Deng, but you probably would’ve been wise to let this one go. Once Andre Iguodala’s got that ball cuffed and loaded both the rim and whoever stands in his way will inevitably be destroyed.
Oh yes he did, Reggie Miller.

It was a Titanic development for the Chicago Bulls and their fans.
The Chicago Bulls took flight for Philadelphia without both a series lead and superstar guard Derrick Rose.
They counted on having both after the first two games against the 76ers.
Rose's torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee cost him the postseason and any chance the Bulls had of sweeping the Sixers in the best-of-seven series.
Rose's absence in Game 2 was...
PHILADELPHIA—Spencer Hawes scored 21 points, grabbed nine rebounds and hit the go-ahead jumper late in the fourth quarter to help the Philadelphia 76ers rally to beat the Chicago Bulls 79-74 on Friday night and take a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference playoff series.
Hawes scored 10 clutch points in the fourth to give the eighth-seeded Sixers the surprising series lead.
On Friday night, the eighth seeded Philadelphia 76ers took a 2-1 series lead on the number one seeded Chicago Bulls. Although the Bulls are without their star player Derrick Rose, the Bulls are still a dominant threat. With the series being split after the first two game in Chicago, the series headed to Philadelphia.
The Wells Fargo Center was electric on Friday night as 20...
