In what can only be described as ****** basketball, the Chicago Bulls beat a rec-league team from Philadelphia Wednesday night in overtime.
Hold on – they weren’t a rec-league team? Oh, I guess those were the Philadelphia 76ers, which are still considered an NBA team despite having a 14-50 record.
Wait, c’mon, they chucked up 41 threes! Jason Richardson was like that kid in...

My fellow Chicagoans, we are all aware of what kind of player Kirk Hinrich is in his 30’s. He isn’t that much of a scorer or distributor, but he can still defend and is a leader on the court. With Derrick Rose injured last season he took the job of the starting point guard...

Kirk Hinrch is old and bad.
On Friday night, he’ll suit up for the first time since Feb. 7, when the Chicago Bulls beat the New Orleans Pelicans. He missed the last three games before the All-Star break with a turf toe injury – just another injury piled on to the Kansas guard’s career.

During last night’s Cavs- Bulls game, the SM crew came to a startling conclusion that the Bulls may have the most “unique” looking team in the NBA.

No qualitative research was officially done to confirm this bold statement, but...

Kirk Hinrich pretty much lost this game.
With 3 seconds to go and the Bulls up 3, Monta Ellis (a good 3-point shooter to be sure) drove up to the right side of the court to take a desperation 3 as time expired. Hinrich fouled as Ellis went into his shot, with 1.2 seconds left. Ellis seemingly had no chance to make the 3, but he had a chance to make all 3 free throws. Obviously, he...
