RUMOR: John Calipari To The Chicago Bulls Makes Perfect Sense

Let’s get this party started. No seriously. The Chicago Bulls are in the market for a new head coach, that’s no secret. The turmoil between Tom Thibodeau and management has pretty much boiled over.

Thibodeau Is Like A Cranky Billionaire, He Runs His Butler To Death!

Woooo, Jimmy Buckets is back!  And Tom Thibodeau does what Tom Thibodeau does...  Runs his guys to death.

Chicago Bulls: Time To Start Kirk Hinrich

  (Source: Stephen Dunn/Getty Images North America) By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff.. My fellow Chicagoans, we are all aware of what kind of player Kirk Hinrich is in his 30’s.

ESPN Trade Machine-Approved: What Can Derrick Rose Net Chicago in Return?

The Chicago Bulls are in the midst of a bit of a funk, but for once during the Tom Thibodeau era, it’s not due to a lack of scoring; rather, it’s a lack of an interior defense with Pau Gasol at center and Joakim Noah playing out of position at the four.
