The Chicago Bulls finished 62-20 to secure the No. 1 seed in the NBA last season, advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals and Derrick Rose became the Bulls’ first league MVP since Michael Jordan played for Phil Jackson in the 1990’s.
What does all of this mean to Jackson?
“I think they overachieved last year as far [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
On Thursday, Phil Jackson provided some trenchant if benign analysis that mirrored the sort of comments Basketball Hall of Famers down (or sometimes up) to message board denizens have been spouting for years. Derrick Rose can't carry the Chicago Bulls to a championship by himself, Phil sez. Shock horror.
Because Jackson was the coach of the Chicago Bulls from 1989 to 1998,...
Phil Jackson said the Chicago Bulls overachieved last season, and he subscribes to the conventional thinking that the Bulls need to add pieces to help Derrick Rose.
The Zen Master is approximately the 859th million person to point out that Derrick Rose, offensively speaking, is basically all alone in the Windy City. Via USA Today: “Phil Jackson thinks Bulls guard Derrick Rose should be hanging out a ‘Help wanted’ sign. Appearing on the Waddle and Silvy Show on ESPN 1000, Jackson said the team overachieved last year and need to get some...
With under a week until the start of the NBA’s 41st season, we’re previewing all 25 teams. Whatchu say? Twenty-five teams? Yup. We’re looking at every franchise in addition to shining a light on the new Eastern Conference expansion Charlotte Hornets and Western Conference expansion Miami Heat. And if Charlotte’s more East than Miami, I’ll apparently be previewing the new...
Like the man with no name from a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. Benetton Treviso gun for hire Brian Scalabrine lights up Avellino of the Euroleague for 18 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal in 34 minutes of work — and it wasn’t even in garbage time!
For the first ever B.Scal highlights I’ve ever witnessed, he definitely went H.A.M or at least Prosciutto on Avellino.
This is competition #2 in the Eastern Conference.Three years after taking Derrick Rose as their first overall pick in 2008, the Chicago Bulls did something they haven't done since a guy named Michael Jordan was electrifying the Windy City and the NBA...getting to the Eastern Conference Finals. They only lost 3 times in their first 11 games of last year's playoffs going...
A nice little interview on Hoopshype today with former Celtic Brian Scalabrine. Worth the couple of minutes to read as he gives his take on the best team he's played for, how life in Italy is and how "Dwyane Wade and LeBron James both have been in the Finals and Dwyane has performed in the Finals."
It's really interesting hearing what he says about the 2010 and...
Let us take a trip back to 1993, when the Chicago Bulls faced off against the New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference Finals. During game four, a fly had found a resting spot on the head of Michael Jordan during a time-out and teammate Scottie Pippen decided the best way to deal with it was to kill it:(Courtesy of Sportress of Blogitude)
