LeBron James to the Chicago Bulls. And how.

June 25, 2010

Since we have spent the last year or so wading through the murky waters of free agency, don’t you think it’s about time we started drawing some conclusions?

But before we come to any real conclusions, a little role play. Imagine yourself as Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant. In just your second week on the job you are faced with the prospect of having to trade away the best player in franchise history in a do or die sign and trade, or watch the two time and defending league MVP simply leave town as an unrestricted free agent. Of course, there is also the possibility of resigning him, but I think the chances of that are very small.

Glad I’m not that guy.

Conclusion #1: The only one that really matters.

Prospects of Bronze

May 4, 2010

The Chicago Bulls are subject to various free agency rumors, be it from the big three (LeBron, Wade, Bosh) to the “lower” tier of players hoping to cash in this offseason (perhaps Amar’e and Joe Johnson). The needs are glaring, the foundation efficiently solid, the upper management situation a little more than hazy. Still, this is Chicago and it remains a prime destination for prospective players.

Are the Clouds Closer?

April 23, 2010

First off, this isn’t surprising and quite frankly is expected. Everyone knew or believed that the Thunder would take at least one game and everyone knew that Chicago would be competitive, especially after the first two games. And I wouldn’t consider either of these games a “steal” by the 8-seed, they were most certainly victories. Read the rest of this entry »

I Believe in Wind

April 20, 2010

The playoffs so far have been far from surprising. The only real surprising thing so far has been Phoenix’s poor showing against a wounded Portland. However, game 1 is the easiest to steal and easiest to recover from. One of the least surprising things about the playoffs has been the fact that the Chicago Bulls haven’t backed down from the heavily favored Cleveland Cavaliers and can actually compete.

It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World

April 9, 2010

Derrick Rose came up huge last night in a much needed win for the Bulls over the LeBron-less Cleveland Cavaliers. His jump shot looked much improved and his quickness was nothing short of scorching. I am desperately hoping for the Bulls to make the playoffs instead of the hapless Toronto Raptors, who are now without Chris Bosh. While the Bulls have no realistic chance of winning against the Cavaliers, they would still be entertaining as long as they can stay healthy.

When They Were President: One Liners

Baron Davis would certainly have a great presidency.

You Only Get What You Give

November 6, 2009

Okay, so I watched the Cavaliers and Bulls game and had a couple thoughts, actually a lot of thoughts, not all of which is directly related to the actual play of the game. I could have just done a list of random thoughts but I thought it might be better if I explained my thoughts as to leave no confusion about exactly what I am saying. Read the rest of this entry »
