Chicago Bulls Trying to Make the Playoffs and Redefine ‘Happy Ending’

Posted on 12 Apr, 2017, by in NBA

This has been a weird season for the Chicago Bulls. A team built without thinking about the future or about the now, that fell apart along the way only to be put together near the end. This might be over with a playoff appearance, but in the long run, losing to the worst team in the NBA that’s going to rest six rotation players could be the best thing for the Bulls. More

The Chicago Bulls have bullied their way through their opponents on the first week of the new NBA season. No problems on the Butler-Rondo-Wade front. Very good big-man combination between Gibson and Lopez. Excellent shooting all around. Mirotic and McDermott sizzling off the bench.

NBA Rumors – Chicago Bulls With a Big Jimmy Butler & Derrick Rose Problem

Posted on 12 Apr, 2016, by in NBA

The Chicago Bulls have one more game before the season is over. They won’t make the playoffs for the first time in eight years. Fred Hoiberg failed to implement his offensive philosophy with a roster that doesn’t fit it. They seem to have too many big men in Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson. And there’s the Derrick Rose-Jimmy Butler elephant in the room. More

NBA Rumors – Golden State Warriors, Chicago Bulls Season Maintains Opposite Direction

Posted on 11 Apr, 2016, by in NBA

The Chicago Bulls didn’t play on Sunday, but their fate on a couple of levels was determined by results. From a present day angle, they lost all hope of making the NBA playoffs due to the Indiana Pacers winning their game. On a historic, franchise level kind of angle, they no longer hold sole possession of the NBA record for most wins in a regular season, now sharing it with the Golden State Warriors. More

Posted on 27 Mar, 2016, by in NBA

While the Chicago Bulls still have 10 games left, it looks quite difficult for them to make the playoffs the way they’re playing right now, injuries and form. Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler will continue to be the focal point of this team next season, but around them (and they themselves) a lot of things have to change. More

NBA Rumors – Chicago Bulls, Jimmy Butler Leave Derrick Rose Fend on his Own

Posted on 25 Mar, 2016, by in NBA

Posted on 3 Mar, 2016, by in NBA

While the notion has been hanging around the heads of the Chicago Bulls players and staff for quite some time, the understanding that this season isn’t just going to be about missing out on a championship or even contending but actually missing the playoffs, seems to be finally hitting them and dragging them further down.
