No one will ever confuse today's Chicago Bulls with the good ol' days of Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant.
These Bulls wont typically get pumped by the NBA as Must-See TV.
And no three players on the roster will ever be referred to as The Big Three.
But they have something good going for them. Something that might be considered less-than-sexy. Something that might not increase the ratings, something that doesnt lend itself to headlines about their star player wanting to move to another franchise, something that could be considered a real downer when it comes to so many things that make the NBA popular today.
These Bulls, it seems, are merely a team.
All they have in the way of pop icons is a young player by the name of Derrick Rose, the NBA's reigning Most Valuable Player.
All they do is defend and rebound and work the ball for the best possible shot. Thats far from the drama of Hollywood or becoming a hot topic of discussion based on star power alon...
BEST OF MAXIM
CLEVELAND -- With Derrick Rose missing his third straight game because of the injury to his big left toe, the Chicago Bulls shot 59.1 percent and led the Cleveland Cavaliers 63-44 at halftime Friday night.
Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose said he has a little "regret" about playing two games last weekend on an injured toe that now threatens to keep him out of a third straight game.
Luol Deng scored 21 points, Carlos Boozer added 19 and 14 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls managed easily without superstar Derrick Rose, embarrassing the Cleveland Cavaliers 114-75 on Friday night.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Luol Deng scored 21 points, Carlos Boozer added 19 and 14 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls managed easily without superstar Derrick Rose, embarrassing the Cleveland Cavaliers 114-75 on Friday night.
Rose missed his third straight game with a strained left big toe, but the Bulls barely missed the NBA's reigning MVP and handed the Cavs their worst home loss. Cleveland...
[Derrick Rose] is a great point guard, the best probably in the game, [but] it’s just another game. I’m not really facing Derrick Rose. I’m facing the Chicago Bulls. It’s the Cleveland Cavaliers versus the Chicago Bulls. That’s what I’m looking forward to.
- Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving on Friday’s opponent Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls. Rose is questionable...
Oof. Cleveland fans, this was not a good showing by the Cavaliers. Kyrie Irving got the Cavs started early with 11 quick points. It was all downhill from there as the Cavaliers shot 30% while allowing the Bulls to have their way in the paint. Chicago finished shooting 55.4%.
Oh, and Derrick Rose didn’t play.
