Posted on 8 Feb, 2017, by in NBA

The NBA teams of the three biggest TV markets can’t seem to get it right. The Chicago Bulls are mediocre and unsure whether to build around Jimmy Butler or dump him, and what to do with the current management. The New York Knicks seem to be realizing that Carmelo Anthony is only hurting them, but Phil Jackson may not be the one who can bring this group into the playoffs and contention again.

Posted on 28 Oct, 2016, by in NBA

The Chicago Bulls opened the Jimmy Butler-Rajon Rondo-Dwyane Wade era with a win over the Boston Celtics, which had an interesting combination of some terrible shooting efficiency, surprisingly accurate 3-point barrage and mostly using their size to bully their way to a meaningful home win, which probably sets something of a blueprint going forward, until everyone is on the same page.
