With the exception of the Las Vegas oddsmakers, most people are writing the Chicago Bulls out of playoff contention for this season thanks to Derrick Rose's torn ACL and MCL. But are they still playoff contenders in what is a lopsided Eastern Conference? Reserve power forward Taj Gibson think told ESPN Chicago he thinks the Bulls can contend even without Rose for at least most of the regular season.
"Our mindset hasn't changed. It's about staying focused and taking one game at a time. We understand it's going to be up and down at the beginning of the season. We can't look forward to the end. We got to look forward to one game at a time and playing to our strengths and just listening to coach (Tom Thibodeau). I know it's going to be a long season, but I'm really optimistic about what's going to happen."
What else is he going to stay? Of course Gibson thinks the Bulls can compete, especially when the Bulls have a fairly succ...

Rose's quotes from the video above:
“The whole time the playoffs was going on I only watched a couple of games from every series, but I wasn’t into it like I was if I was playing. I know that’s going to push me to work even...

The former power forward has turned down a coaching offer from the Chicago Bulls in favor of broadcasting games this season with Comcast Sports New England, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. While it's not entirely an admitting that he is retired from basketball, Scalabrine...
Chicago Bulls : NBA Draft Grade B
29) Marquis Teague, PG
The Bulls could have been in the NBA finals but that all change when Derrick Rose torn his ACL. The Bulls really need a backup point guard to Rose. Especially with Rose’s status to begin the season unknown. With their only pick in the draft, that got that point guard in Teague. I was shocked that the third best...
Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook are two of the brightest young stars in the NBA. Rose was expected to take the Chicago Bulls deep into the 2012 playoffs before suffering an injury in the first round. Westbrook helped lead his team to the NBA finals last season. If you had to pick one player, which one would it be?
Let’s begin the discussion with an overview of their...

According to ESPN Chicago, Scalabrine will join Comcast New England as a broadcaster. The White Mamba will commentate Bostic Celtics games this coming season.

White Mamba Brian Scalabrine announced yesterday that he was retiring from the NBA and returning to the television booth as color commentator for Celtics games. In choosing to join the C's broadcast team, Scal turned down a seat beside Chicago Bulls head coach and old friend Tom Thibodeau as an assistant.

Instead of suiting up on a nightly basis for Tom Thibodeau as part of his Bulls coaching staff, Boston favorite Brian Scalabrine will suit up for CSNNE. Choosing the Boston TV gig over the Chicago coaching gig wasn’t easy… especially since he wanted to keep playing. But, sadly, no one wanted him.
”I had zero opportunities. Not some, but zero.”
I’m sure Scal’s...

Brian Scalabrine has decided to accept a color analysis and studio job with Comcast Sports New England instead of a coaching position with the Chicago Bulls.
Much respect for this Hoopster rocking a Bill Cartwright Chicago Bulls jersey. In the order of which throwback Bulls jersey that most fans would get this definitely comes after MJ, Scottie, Rodman, Ho Grant (even though I’ve never seen a Ho Grant jersey), BJ Armstong, John Paxson, and Steve Kerr. Only then would you probably start considering Bill Cartwright and even then I might...
I have been tasked with eulogizing Brian Scalabrine's career. And I'll be honest, I'm not 100% sure how to properly do that. I've have a unique perspective on it because I just happened to be paying attention to it at the critical swing of the pendulum from "nobody" to "hated because he's overpaid" to "could be mayor if he wants...
