The Chicago Bulls are being conservative with injuries this season, and Rose's absence likely will extend to next week. "When one guy is out, the next guy step in and get the job done," Tom Thibodeau said. "That’s the way it’s been. My first year here, Joakim (Noah) missed three months...

Chicago Bulls Season Preview

As if we planned it this way, the Bulls kick off their season just as the Bears enter their bye week amidst their most disappointing season in recent memory. I’m as excited as I’ve been for a Bulls season. I think this is the best, deepest roster they’ve had in the Tom Thibodeau era.

Bulls 100, Raptors 93 (11/13/14)

I’m getting ready to see Tom Thibodeau lose his job, honestly. There are some things that are inexcusable, and using a 7-man rotation on November 13, 2014 is certainly one of them. I realize that the Toronto Raptors were 7-1, and a likely playoff team that you want to beat. That being said, you have to plan for the actual meaningful games, especially when you know you are a 50...

The State of the Frontcourt: Analyzing the Celtics front court Saturday night and moving forward

Let’s preface this article by saying that the Chicago Bulls team the Celtics just beat is not the Chicago Bulls team that many expect to make a deep playoff run.  Playing in their 4th game in 5 nights, the Bulls were without their star point guard Derrick Rose.  Joakim Noah is clearly not himself yet, especially on the defensive end of the floor, after missing two games with...
