...Bulls lose to Clippers...,11-9, 1st in Central...

Monday, July 23, 2012


Well, the Bulls big free-agent acquisitions so far have been Kirk Hinrich, Vladimir Radmanovic, Nazr Mohammed and Marco Belinelli.

Malcolm Thomas was impressive in summer league so if they don't sign him then I'm not sure why they even bother to bring in FAs for summer league.

They traded Korver to Atlanta for cash and opted not to bring Watson and Brewer back. Asik's offer sheet from Houston will likely go unmatched.

So, as of right now, the Bulls' opening day roster will look much like this:

C Joakim Noah       Nazr Mohammed
PF Carlos Boozer       Taj Gibson                     Malcolm Thomas
SF Jimmy Butler       Vladimir Radmanovic
SG Richard Hamilton     Marco Belinelli
PG Kirk Hinrich       Marquis Teague

IL Derrick Rose        Luol Deng

Captain Kirk Returns

Reports from around the web have indicated that Kirk Hinrich has agreed to a two-year deal with the Bulls. His addition makes CJ Watson's departure more likely.

So dust off those old #12 jerseys and rejoice, my friends. Captain Kirk is coming back to Chi-town.

Today in Bulls History: 6/11/97- The Flu Game

June 11th, 1997:  A sickly Jordan puts up 38 points and hits the game clinching 3 to lead the Bulls over Utah in Game 5 of the 1997 Finals. Classic shot of Scottie holding a weak Jordan as they leave the court.

"Slap the Wrist" Technique?

I stumbled upon this video on youtube that shows Mr. Jordan slapping his own wrist in an attempt to get a foul called. I was never aware of this technique and can't believe I never noticed it during all my years of Jordan watching. What a sneaky SOB that Jordan fellow was. Sneaky indeed.

ESPN Michael Jordan Commercial

Just saw this commercial on ESPN. Pretty funny.

Until Next Year...

I am a die hard Bulls fan. I watched 70+ games a year during the Tim Floyd and Bill Cartwright eras. I own Eddy Curry, Tyson Chandler, Elton Brand and Ron Artest jerseys.

I'm sorry  to say that I've lost interest in this Bulls/Sixers series. 

With one snap of a knee, the Bulls went from championship contender to second-round hopefuls.

If Kyle Korver was as good at basketball as he is giving heartfelt speeches to the Chicago media, the Bulls would be in much better shape.

The Bulls are down 2-1, and even if they manage to beat the Sixers in the first round, they face certain doom in the second round, likely against the Celtics. Imagine the damage Rajon Rondo would do to a Rose-less Bulls team for four games. John Lucas III would likely retire after such a vicious raping. 

I don't know where I'm going with this post anymore. I guess I'm just bummed out about such a promising season going down the toilet so quickly. I just try to remember that Mr. Jordan missed almost a full season at Rose's age with a broken foot. We all know what Jordan did when he healed and returned to the court.

Farewell for now, and Go Bears!

Who just bought this shirt for $3? 

This guy right here. 

Notice the authentic NBA apparel sticker. This gem is fourteen years old and has never been worn. Well, never washed at least... 

Anyway, God bless you Salvation Army. God bless you indeed.

Bulls vs Raptors (1995)

I stumbled upon this video on YouTube today and boy is it fun to watch. The 1995-96 team was sick. Check it out. Pippen scored five points in less than 2 seconds!

I just wanted to share my delightful ESPN NBA playoff simulation. I must admit that the center image gets me slightly aroused. http://espn.go.com/nba/playoffs/predictions
