Screen Shot 2014-08-13 at 5.50.52 PM

The NBA released the Bulls schedule for the upcoming season (as well as the rest of the league, obviously), and while I have a hard time getting excited about an 82-game schedule, there was one aspect of it that concerned me.

The Bulls will play on consecutive nights 19 times next season.

Some Helpful English Phrases For Nikola Mirotic

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 11.48.41 AM

During his introductory press conference with the Chicago Bulls, Nikola Mirotic confessed that his “English is not so good.” Which is understandable, as he was born in Montenegro and has spent his entire professional career in Spain.

So he does speak Spanish, and seeing that I have a passable knowledge of the Spanish language, I thought I could help Nikola make the transition to English.

A Eulogy For Carlos Boozer

Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

I come here tonight to say goodbye. The Bulls announced Tuesday night that they would be using the amnesty provision on Carlos Boozer, just like we all figured they would. For some the news was a moment of celebration.

I am not shedding tears over it, either, but you know what? While saying goodbye to Boozer is absolutely the right move for the Bulls, I want to make one thing clear.

Are the Bulls putting a backup plan in place, or do they have something larger planned?

That’s the question I had to ask myself when I saw the latest report from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski about the Bulls pursuing a trade for Orlando’s Arron Afflalo. For months we’ve heard all about the Bulls and their interest in guys like Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love, but as any Bulls fan knows when it comes to bringing a top player to Chicago, backup plans are a must. So is that what Afflalo is? Here’s what Wojnarowski wrote.
