New Hall of Fame Prediction Model

We maintained a Hall of Fame prediction model that, overall, works pretty well. This looks like a good list, yes?   However, keep scrolling and you'll see that a few players are slipping through the cracks. Miller is already in and good money is on both Mutombo's and Nash's eventual inductions.     So we've tweaked our model a little bit. It's no less...

Cavs Dribbles: Are Bulls a legit threat?

Random observations on the Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls, who meet in a preseason game Monday at Ohio State: 1. It's only the preseason, but a lot of folks expect the Bulls to be the Cavs' biggest threat in the Eastern Conference. I'm not so sure about that. I think Wizards will be up there, too.

Pau Gasol, Bulls Believe He Can Thrive Defensively In Thibodeau's System

Pau Gasol believes the Chicago Bulls' system on defense will maximize his attributes on that end of the floor.
