Talk about Chicago Regional Teams

Last Resort

Posted by Decker on 7th July 2010

The Chicago Bulls have officially missed out on Amare Stoudemire, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh. And, it looks like LeBron James will be added to that list on Thursday night. Now, they need to make a move. It looks like Carlos Boozer will be the next one to target. The Bulls would potentially add him to a lineup that includes Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and Luol Deng. But even if they get Boozer, Chicago fans will feel left out. But that’s the way it works.

Bulls Need Johnson

Posted by Decker on 3rd June 2010

In a big sports city like Chicago, good performances are expected. For a team that has been exiting first round lately, it is time for the Bulls to step up. Derrick Rose is an excellent player, but he clearly needs help. With the 2010 free agency coming, the Bulls need to target one man: Joe Johnson. Sure, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and Amare Stoudemire are all better plays. But the odds of any of them coming to Chicago are very slim. Joe Johnson is in his prime, and is 28 years of age. By the time a long-term contract would end, yes, he will probably be a little out of his prime. But someone with his shooting ability will be a valuable asset until his career ends.

Joe Johnson is likely frustrated with the under whelming playoff performances that Atlanta put on. And just like everyone else, Johnson will be eager to see what is out there for him. If the Bulls reach out to Johnson immediately, he will likely be very receptive. A backcourt of Rose and Johnson would likely be the best in the entire league. It is up to Chicago to make it happen.

Noah leaves Cleveland media hanging

Posted by GameSetMatch on 19th April 2010

A day after making derogatory comments about the city of Cleveland, Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah did not address reporters following a morning shootaround in advance of Monday night’s Game 2 against the Cavaliers.

Noah told reporters on Sunday that he was not enjoying his time in Cleveland. When asked by a reporter whether the boos he endured during a 96-83 Game 1 loss on Saturday bothered him, he responded: “What? That Cleveland sucks?”

On Monday, a large horde of reporters waited for Noah off to the side of the Quicken Loans Arena court. After initially appearing to walk toward the group, Noah was escorted to the visitor’s tunnel by a Bulls spokesperson. It was believed that he had to tape a segment for the TNT telecast and would be back out in 10 minutes.

But soon after another Bulls spokesperson came out and said Noah would not be address the media. Several Cleveland media members expressed displeasure.

Bulls keep up the fight

Posted by GameSetMatch on 14th April 2010

After six months and 81 games, this roller coaster of a season for the Bulls comes down to the regular- season finale tonight in Charlotte.

A win will send them to the playoffs for the second consecutive year and the fifth time in six years. A loss could send them into the offseason.

The Bulls set up the drama with an impressive finish in a 101-93 victory Tuesday over the Boston Celtics at the United Center.

Derrick Rose led the way with a career-high 39 points on 15-for-22 shooting, and Kirk Hinrich added a season-high 30 points on 11-for-20 shooting, including 4-for-7 from three-point range.

”Derrick just kept attacking, and Kirk hit some big shots down the stretch,” coach Vinny Del Negro said. ”[Hinrich] stepped up big for us, and our energy was fantastic. Everyone contributed.”

Bulls need quick turnaround with familiar rivals on schedule

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th November 2009

History has shown that it’s never too late for the Bulls to turn things around.

In 2004-05, they started 2-13 and recovered to win 47 games. Last year, they won 12 of their last 16 to finish with a .500 record.

So to call the coming week a critical stretch for the Bulls would be an overstatement. But it would help if they could end a run of four straight lopsided losses before the team’s chemistry and confidence suffer lasting harm.

Good start on Western road trip for Bulls

Posted by GameSetMatch on 19th November 2009

Bigger challenges await them down the road, but the Bulls began their five-game Western trip with an impressive and mostly comfortable — save for a few minutes in the fourth quarter — 101-87 victory over the Sacramento Kings late Tuesday.


“That fourth quarter wasn’t real pretty, but fortunately we got some stops when we needed to and came out with the victory,” Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. “A good start to a long trip.”

This was the first meeting of the teams since that big trade last February, so it was only fitting that guard John Salmons, the key to the deal from the Bulls’ perspective, busted out of his recent shooting funk to led the team with 23 points on 9-for-18 shooting.

Bulls use balanced attack to stop Spurs

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th October 2009

Luol Deng scored 17 points and added nine rebounds as the Chicago Bulls used a balanced scoring attack to beat the San Antonio Spurs 92-85 in their season-opening game on Thursday.

Derrick Rose finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Bulls, who lost to the Boston Celtics in a hard-fought seven-game first round playoff series last year.

Tyrus Thomas also scored 13 points, while Kirk Hinrich added 14 points off the bench. Joakim Noah had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Bulls.

Tim Duncan scored a game-high 28 points and 16 rebounds for the Spurs who had only one other player in double figures. Manu Ginobili scored 12 points and had six rebounds for San Antonio, who opened the season Wednesday with a victory over New Orleans.

Bulls injury updates: Rose, Thomas still day-to-day

Posted by GameSetMatch on 13th October 2009

Because the injuries to Derrick Rose and Tyrus Thomas have lingered longer than initially expected, everyone — reporters, coaches and players — is finding new ways to ask and answer the same questions on a daily basis.



After Monday’s practice at the Berto Center, coach Vinny Del Negro was asked if Thomas ”did anything today.”

”He didn’t practice,” Del Negro said. ”He had breakfast and did a few other things.”

Rim shot, please.

Both players were injured in the Bulls’ first preseason game on Oct. 2 and were listed as day-to-day. Neither is expected to play tonight when the Bulls face the Milwaukee Bucks at the United Center.

With more than two weeks to go before the regular-season opener Oct.29 against the San Antonio Spurs at the United Center, there’s no sense of urgency to get both players back on the court just yet — but don’t try convincing Rose of that.

Johnson, Gibson look solid

Posted by rsanrel on 7th October 2009

It would be foolish to read too much from the first couple of preseason games, but right now it’s look as if rookies James Johnson and Taj Gibson will be key contributors off the bench from the start of the season.

Gibson followed up his splendid debut last week against the Indiana Pacers with another solid effort in the Bulls’ thrilling 102-101 victory over the Utah Jazz Tuesday in London. Johnson also had a good game and gave the Bulls the win with a buzzer-beating short jumper.

Both rookies are active and athletic and will give the Bulls improved front-court depth. With Johnson and Gibson playing well, Tyrus Thomas better produce or else he could find himself losing playing time.
