There are a lot of things speculated about the Bulls summer that I haven’t exactly been a big fan of. I don’t like the idea of Pau Gasol if they miss out on Carmelo Anthony. Hell, I’m not even that big of a fan of the idea of Carmelo Anthony. I also live in constant fear of Kirk Hinrich coming back.
But these are all things I could live with were they to happen. I wouldn’t be happy, but it’s just sports, man. It isn’t that big of a deal.
There’s really only one thing the Bulls could do this summer that would cause me to lose my mind, but it’s a good thing there’s no chance of that happ…oh? What’s that?
Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.
If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.
And now that you know how to do it, let’s get to the this week’s questions.
It was hard to find a silver lining in the Bulls blowing another one late Tuesday night but it was there.
You see, in the final seconds, there were the Bulls running their offense, needing a basket to tie the game and send it to a second overtime. It was the most important possession of the year because, while it wouldn’t officially end the season, getting down 0-2 in a series with the next two games on the road is a daunting task.
So what did they do on that final possession? The same thing they’d done on what felt like the last 15 possessions. The Bulls gave the ball to Kirk Hinrich and said “go do something, guy who shot 39% this season!”
LeBron James was never planning on coming to Chicago this summer. Now that Phil Jackson is running the Knicks, the odds of Carmelo Anthony leaving the Big Apple for the Windy City are slimmer than ever before.
Which means that Bulls fans need a new white whale, because ever since Michael Jordan left for good, and took Scottie and Phil with him, that’s what Bulls fans have done. They’ve looked longingly at the horizon over Lake Michigan hoping for a new superstar to appear.
