Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, currently not in the lineup as he continues to deal with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, ran afoul of the NBA’s apparently stringent dress code policies on Monday while seated on the bench during the team’s game against the Indiana Pacers.

  The Chicago Bulls had one of the best benches in the NBA over the last two years, but last off-season, for cap purposes, decided to remake the bench with cheaper options. This involved trading Kyle Korver, letting the Rockets sign Omer Asik and not picking up the team options on CJ Watson and Ronnie Brewer. The Bulls did not believe that they would be  contenders, since they...

Nate Robinson Calls Refs Lazy After Not Reviewing Controversial No-Call

At 98-94 with under 2 minutes to go, the undermanned Bulls seemed to be gaining momentum on Monday night until a 50/50 ball flew out of bounds and the refs called Indiana ball without hesitation and oddly refused to review the play, drawing criticism from the visiting locker room who ultimately succumbed 111-101. According to CSN Chicago: “What’s the rule? Under two minutes,...

Games To Watch, Week 15 (2/4 – 2/10)

Monday, February 4th: Bulls @ Pacers, 7:00 ET, NBALP: It’s an eight-game Monday tonight, which is different, but there still aren’t any choices that really stand out as far as probable entertainment value… which is pretty much what I look for in my selections.  That said, Chicago at Indiana should be exciting in the sense that it figures to be a hard-fought battle between...
