Winning 29 games last season, a 13-win improvement, was enough for the Minnesota Timberwolves to decide that they have a good enough team, and all it needs is a bit more experience and getting older to become a formidable power in the Western conference. That seemed to be the way they approached the 2016 offseason, relying on Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins to simply be better next season. More

Chicago Bulls – The Best Team in the NBA When Everyone is Healthy

Posted on 2 Dec, 2014, by in NBA

The team most synonymous with injuries in the NBA over the last few seasons are the Chicago Bulls. However, when their regular lineup of Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Mike Dunleavy, Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah is healthy and playing, they just might be the best team in the league. More

Chicago Bulls – Can Win the NBA Championship, But Will They?

Posted on 25 Oct, 2014, by in NBA

The Chicago Bulls aren’t giving up on building a championship team around Derrick Rose. The addition of Pau Gasol to the improving Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler make for the best supporting cast assembled around the former MVP since he won the award. Now all that’s left is actually staying healthy and carrying on his preseason form into the NBA’s regular season. More

The Chicago Bulls looked like a team that can win the East due to the weakness of the perceived two favorites, but two close losses to the Washington Wizards have changed that notion in most people’s minds. But a team that relies on defense and effort, not on hot shooting or a certain player getting hot, can’t be counted out, when the talent gaps aren’t that big if they’re there at all. More

Chicago Bulls – Tom Thibodeau Unhappy About Luol Deng Trade

Posted on 8 Jan, 2014, by in NBA

Are the Chicago Bulls tanking? It’s hard to say, but they aren’t exactly setting themselves up to win a lot this season. Unlike other teams with that kind of plan in mind around the NBA, no one expected this from the Bulls, which leaves Tom Thibodeau as the most frustrated person from the trade that sent Luol Deng away, while the team mostly gained draft picks and financial relief.
