The absolute worst sports fan in America has officially filed a lawsuit against the best player on his favorite team, Derrick Rose. From HopHop365:
A 25-year-old Peoria Illinois man filed a lawsuit Thursday against Chicago Bulls Superstar Derrick Rose. Matthew Thompson, a self-described long-time Bulls fan, and electrician claims Rose missing the entire 2012-2013 NBA regular season has caused him to have mental breakdowns and emotional distress, which ultimately led to obesity issues.
According to reports, Thompson claims Rose displayed negligent behavior by refusing to return to the court, despite having been cleared by team doctors. He blames his health issues on the MVP’s refusal to return.
This frivolous lawsuit epitomizes the entitlement mentality of so many. This man’s inability to handle the struggles of a sports team led him to blame a highly talented professional for not entertaining him to his liking. This is sickening. Buck up, dude! The lawyer(s) taking up this case should absolutely serve some sort of penalty for filing such a frivolous lawsuit. Something should be done to prevent this sort of lawsuit from ever happening. It is a mockery to the US justice system.
Although I was apathetic before, now I’ll be looking forward to watching Derrick Rose overcome his injury and return to the court. I am pulling for him and hoping the report from HipHop365 is false.

The Chicago Bulls are fighting to steal a game from the Brooklyn Nets during Game 2 of their Eastern Conference matchup; they’re doing fairly well at it by producing some efficient offense, while limiting Brooklyn’s shots. However, that’s not the exciting part, it’s the bench celebration from the Chicago. Joakim Noah has the best reaction. [...]The post Chicago Bulls’...
Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah started yesterday’s playoff opener against the Brooklyn Nets, even after it looked like he may not be available. He played 12 minutes – as he continues to be hampered by a foot injury – and he told reporters – including Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago – after the game that he will be able to suit up for Game 2.Noah was questionable for yesterday’s...
Not all tattoos turn out as masterpieces.Take this guy for example, who decided he wanted an image of diminutive Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson stamped on the left side of his back. Not just any image, though. He got an image of the 5-foot-9 player about to throw down a between-the-legs dunk.There are three things (maybe more) that make this tattoo less than stellar.First, the...
The Brooklyn Nets C.J. Watson accounted for 10 of the teams 82 points in their Game 2 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday.
Three of them happened to be prettier than the rest as Watson nailed a three point buzzer beater to end the first half.
The story of the evening was Joakim Noah’s courageous performance despite his foot injury.
Noah chipped in nine fourth quarter points...
The sneaker game has become a part of the competition for NBA players, both on and off-court. Many have an affinity for footwear, striving to amass the newest releases, player exclusives and limited-edition finds. Chicago Bulls guard, Rip Hamilton, recently took to twitter to showcase his Jordan collection. A collection that required two U-Haul trucks to move the footwear into...
I wonder does the fan know that Robinson plays for the Bulls now?
I am just at a loss of words, I have no explanation.
No more excuses. The time for Derrick Rose to stand up and come forward is right now.
That became self-evident Saturday night, when a Chicago Bulls team lacking its star player and worn weary by a season without him was utterly overwhelmed by the Brooklyn Nets, 106-89, in the opener of their seven-game series.
So much wrong with this Bulls team was on display. Head coach Tom Thibodeau...
Bulls backup point guard, Nate Robinson, who was signed to replace former backup, C.J. Watson who was waived last summer, says their is mutual animosity between the two guards who are matched up with one another in the first round Bulls-Nets series.

Joakim Noah, against most reports stating the opposite, played on Saturday night for the Bulls, but was ineffective as he dealt with a bum foot. A big question for Game 2 of this series is how the injured Noah will play

What a weird coincidence, two losing teams sharing a hotel.
Boston.com reported that the Chicago Bulls and the Boston Celtics shared the same hotel last weekend after they both got beat in their game 1's of their series.
‘‘This was a quiet, dark hotel last night. The New York-area teams didn’t treat the guests very well,’’ Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Sunday.
Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says Luol Deng, Kirk Hinrich and Derrick Rose will sit out Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat on Friday night.
Thibodeau spoke at the team's morning shootaround.
Deng became sick during the first-round series against Brooklyn and has been dealing with complications stemming from a spinal tap. He will miss his...
