Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler Send Warning Shot To Eastern Conference

There are a lot of doubters out there of just how far the Chicago Bulls can go in the NBA playoffs this year.  It can be understood given the almost laughable number of injuries they’ve suffered to star players like Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah and of course Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose.

Chicago Bulls: Why They Will Beat The Bucks

(Source: Christian Petersen/Getty Images North America) By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… Yes, I live in Chicago and am biased when it comes to the Chicago Bulls, but I don’t need to be a Chicagoan to tell you that this will be an incredibly easy series against the Milwaukee Bucks. Yes, the Bucks could steal a game or 2, but regardless of the health of Derrick...

Can Derrick Rose lead the Bulls to a championship?

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports Derrick Rose went down with yet another knee injury this season, but has returned and looked very good in his first four games back from his meniscus tear. He chose to have his meniscus trimmed rather than repaired, which helped his recovery time and confidence in coming back from an injury knowing that it couldn’t happen again. Now the question...

Jimmy Butler plays best game show ever, ‘Taylor or Failure’

We love Taylor Swift, as we have mentioned multiple times. But our love may be exceeded by Chicago Bull all-star Jimmy Butler.

Who Can Beat The Chicago Bulls? West Coast Edition

When I look into my NBA crystal ball, the future of the Western Conference is very hazy. The conference standings are a jumble of teams shifting around the No. 2-6 seed positions but unlike the past few years in the Western Conference, there is a little more space between the records of the No. 1 seed and the No. 8 seed. Currently, the Golden State Warriors possess the top spot...
