Nikola Mirotic Is Balling

Bulls rookie forward Nikola Mirotic went for 28 points and eight rebounds in a win against the Hornets last night, a performance that he punctuated by banking one on Jason Maxiell's head. Mirotic's minutes have been fluctuating like crazy throughout the season, but Tom Thibodeau is finally starting to give him some… » 3/24/15 10:57am 3/24/15 10:57am

Sad Derrick Rose Shrine Even Sadder After Being Vandalized

Remember that incredibly sad Derrick Rose shrine we told you about yesterday? Well, the only thing sadder than a shrine to a still living basketball player under an underpass is a vandalized shrine to a still living basketball player under an underpass. David Beltran and Brendan Carroll—the two artists who created… » 3/10/15 9:46pm 3/10/15 9:46pm

Chicago Artist's Shrine To Derrick Rose Is The Saddest

It's a common human response to erect shrines and murals in public spaces commemorating fallen heroes. One Chicago artist felt particularly moved by Derrick Rose's umpteenth injury to create one in his memory, replete with the point guard's visage wearing a crown of thorns, crutches and knee pads laid about to signify… » 3/09/15 1:49pm 3/09/15 1:49pm

Let's All Be More Like This Large Fellow Who Slapped Joakim Noah's Ass

You might be tempted to call E'Twaun Moore's game-winning three the highlight of last night's contest between the Thunder and Bulls, but I submit that the night's truly transcendent moment occurred on the ensuing possession, when a portly Bulls fan lost all notion of etiquette and got himself a big ol' handful of… » 3/06/15 11:18am 3/06/15 11:18am

E'Twaun Moore Buries Thunder With Game-Winning Three

Here's a fun look at E'Twaun Moore's three-pointer with two seconds left to beat the Thunder, which featured a cool play where the ball was inbounded to Pau Gasol in the post, and immediately thrown back out to an open Moore. That's Russell Westbrook—who stepped out of bounds on the ensuing possession, denying himself… » 3/05/15 11:10pm 3/05/15 11:10pm

Raw Video Feed Of The Bulls' Welcome Back Ceremony For Craig Sager

Craig Sager is serving as the TNT sideline reporter for tonight's Thunder-Bulls contest, his first game in nearly a year after spending the last 11 months fighting leukemia. During the first quarter the Bulls put together a nice little tribute to Sager, including Benny the Bull presenting him with a custom sports… » 3/05/15 8:59pm 3/05/15 8:59pm

Nene Plays Like Shit, Gets Taunted By Old Dudes

The Wizards, now in the midst of a 1-7 skid, got beat last night by a Bulls team that was without Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson, and Derrick Rose. The Wiz are a goddamn mess right now, but nobody had a worse night than Nene. » 3/04/15 10:06am 3/04/15 10:06am

Bulls GM Says Derrick Rose Will Be Back In Time For The Playoffs

Here Are Some Cool Derrick Rose Dunks

Given today's news and the way he was playing this season, it's kind of hard to believe that this version of Derrick Rose ever existed at all, let alone just four seasons ago. That third dunk remains one of the most absurd things I've ever seen in a basketball game. » 2/25/15 4:11pm 2/25/15 4:11pm

Derrick Rose To Undergo Knee Surgery, May Be Out For Season

David Blatt Plunked By Errant Pass

Cleveland handily dispatched Chicago tonight for their third straight win, continuing to right the ship after going 1-7 with that LeBron James fellow out injured. But while the heat on coach David Blatt's seat has somewhat dissipated—and he's not been moved around by James in a few nights—his life is still chockablock… » 1/19/15 11:54pm 1/19/15 11:54pm

Nikola Vucevic Whomps On Pau Gasol's Head With Dunk

Pau Gasol is having his best season in a couple of years, suggesting that his recent demise wasn't about physical ability but the psychic torture that the Mike D'Antoni-Dwight Howard-Old Kobe Bryant-Nick Young Los Angeles Lakers imposed upon him. But one of the cool things about the NBA is that almost everybody is… » 1/12/15 11:57pm 1/12/15 11:57pm

Jimmy Butler Is A Bad, Bad Man

We already gushed over Jimmy Butler last week so no need to repeat it, but man is he fun to watch. Here he is throwing down a backdoor cut (down the middle of the court) alley-oop, just minutes after he absolutely stuffed James Harden to the ground on an attempted end-of-quarter buzzer beater. » 1/05/15 9:25pm 1/05/15 9:25pm

Jimmy Butler And The Chicago Bulls Are Coming For The Rest Of The NBA

We expected a lot from the Chicago Bulls after the offseason. They signed Pau Gasol. Derrick Rose actually played competitive basketball for Team USA over the summer. And after a win tonight against Indiana, the Bulls' 10th in their last 11 games, it appears the plan is finally coming together. » 12/29/14 9:56pm 12/29/14 9:56pm

Kemba Walker Crosses Over, Nikola Mirotic Falls The Fuck Down

Poor Nikola Mirotic. He has no business checking Kemba Walker. Probably he learned his lesson after sucker-ass Kirk Hinrich left him hanging because he could not get over a Marvin Williams screen and Kemba crossed him out of his socks, but this is immaterial, because Nikola Mirotic is now a cluster of scattered… » 12/04/14 10:54am 12/04/14 10:54am

Kirk Hinrich Submits Contender For Dumbest Foul Of The Season

Two weeks ago I wrote that Alex Len had committed the dumbest foul of the season. Tonight Kirk Hinrich announced his challenge to the throne. » 12/02/14 11:14pm 12/02/14 11:14pm
