- Fans must temper expectations for Derrick Rose September 18, 2014One of the hardest things to cope with in sports is realizing that a beloved athlete may have lost his edge. It’s such a natural reaction to ignore all signs that indicate otherwise, especially when the athlete is a highly favored one. This is especially true in the case of Derrick Rose, who is certainly […] The post Tempering Expectations For Derrick Rose appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.
- #TBT: Derrick Rose Plays For The Bears, According to ESPN September 18, 2014#TBT – Earlier this year, ESPN made quite the blunder. Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bears have been in the headlines a lot lately. After winning the gold metal in the FIBA World Championships, Rose is healthy and ready to go for the 2014-15 Bulls season. The Chicago Bears sit at 1-1 after a big win in San Francisco over the weekend. ESPN … well they’re continually messing **** up. During a broadcast in February about the NFL, ESPN featured Derrick Rose as a member of the Chicago Bears when they showed the graphic. As fast as Rose is, I don’t think his knees are built for football.

- Chicago Bulls Should Ink Jimmy Butler Now September 17, 2014As the highly anticipated 2014-15 NBA season quickly approaches most aren’t looking ahead to next year and what it could mean for the possibility of keeping popular swingman Jimmy Butler. Where He is Now Butler has progressed very well over the course of his first three years in the league, especially on the defensive end where he was voted to the NBA All-Defensive second team for 2013-14. That defense came in handy especially after Luol Deng was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers as Butler was expected to immediately fill the void left by the departure of Chicago’s most elite wing defender. As a result, an increased role on defense inevitably forced Butler’s offensive growth to not only suffer but regress terribly as he ended up shooting a putrid 39.7% from the field– down from 46.7% the year before. Where He Could Be With the return of Derrick Rose and the additions of Doug McDermott, Nikola Mirotic and Pau Gasol taking most of the scoring burden off his shoulders, Butler should be able to pick up wh
- The 90’s Bulls: Where Are They Now? Pt. 1 September 17, 2014Chances are, if you care what the members of any team are doing twenty years later, they were pretty damn good. In the case of the 90’s Bulls, they weren’t just good, they were some of the greatest teams in NBA history. Even if you’re not necessarily a Chicago Bulls fan per se, you can’t argue the cultural significance of the Bulls on an international level. The long shorts, sneakers, and the birth of the modern day endorsement took those Bulls to another stratosphere in terms of exposure. As for the most famous of them all, Michael Jordan, if you even remotely follow the NBA you know what he’s doing; but what about the rest of the guys that helped to bring six rings to the Windy City? Let’s take a look. Horace Grant Well known for his absurdly large goggles and tenacious rebounds, as well as dating Juanita before MJ wifed her, Horace “the General” Grant was an integral piece of the Bulls first three-peat of the 90’s. Seeking a larger role and to finally be recognized as something other
- Chicago Bulls Sign Guard From Magic September 17, 2014According to Priority Sports & Entertainment, the Chicago Bulls have signed former Purdue guard and three-year NBA veteran E’Twaun Moore to a free agent contract Tuesday. According to the report, Mary Stevens of Sports Talk Florida reported in mid-August that Moore would sign with the Bulls “in the next few days,” but the deal apparently did not transpire until this week. Congrats @ETwaun55 on signing with the @chicagobulls. Nothing like staying at home! — Priority Sports (@PrioritySports) September 16, 2014 Moore has averaged 6.3 pts, 1.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.7 turnovers in his three-year career. After spending the last two seasons in Orlando, the Magic declined to submit a qualifying offer to Moore. The Chicago Bulls finished 4th in the Eastern Conference last season, with a 48-34 record.

- Can’t Boo LeBron Now: Last-Second Victory Leads Miami Heat to NBA Finals May 27, 2011Wow. Powered by a furious 18-3 comeback run down the stretch, the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls last night, 83-80, to clinch the Eastern conference title in five games. The Heat will now square off against the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals; Game 1 is on May 31. Both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were cold entering the fourth quarter. Wade’s shoulder seemed to be bothering him; by midway through the third quarter, he had committed 9 turnovers. With Chicago holding a comfortable 12-point lead, 76-64, with just under four minutes left, the Heat would have to close the series in Game 6, back in Miami. (VIDEO: LeBron James: Making the Shot) Or so we all thought. Down ten, 77-67, with 2:36 left, Wade hit a layup. James sank a deep three. A Derrick Rose twisting shot in the lane put the Bulls back up by seven points, 79-72, but then Wade hit a three, and was fouled by Rose. Four-point play. Rose forced a shot in the lane and missed: James grabbed the rebound, dribbled up the floor, and nailed another three to tie it, at 79, with about a minute left. The fans fell silent, but you could hear their minds screaming. Oh my God, what just happened? At this point, the Bulls were too scarred to recover. James knocked a Rose pass into the air, and grabbed the steal. What more could James possibly do? Oh yeah, win the game: James took a hard dribble to his left, and shot a jumper from the top of the key. Bang. The Heat had the lead, and after Rose missed a potential game-tying free throw, Miami had a trip to the Finals. Miami beat Dallas in the 2006 Finals, and it would be hard to bet against the team here. But we can save the Finals chalk-talk for later. Over the next few days, you just have to admire the Heat. And no matter what you think of LeBron and his decisions, you have to appreciate hisSean Gregory
- Bulls Player Joakim Noah Yells a Gay Slur May 23, 2011On Sunday night, the TNT cameras caught Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah exchanging words with someone — presumably a Miami Heat fan — while he was sitting on the bench, during the first quarter of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Noah appeared to bark a profanity, then a homophobic slur. Check out the evidence above. Here’s a slowed-down version: (MORE: Kareem and His Hook Shot Deserve a Statue) The clip looked pretty damning. After the game, which Miami won, 95-86, Noah admitted to saying the foul words. “I apologize,” he told reporters. “The fan said something to me that I thought was disrespectful, and I got caught up in the moment, and I responded. I said some things that I shouldn’t have said. I was frustrated and I didn’t mean any disrespect to anybody.” Noah will receive a hefty fine. He should probably be docked extra money for stupidity. In April, the cameras caught Kobe Bryant barking the same word at an official, and fined him $100,000. The NBA takes the issue of anti-gay language seriously. Even before the Bryant incident, the league filmed a public service announcement, featuring Grant Hill and Jared Dudley of the Phoenix Suns, warning about the dangers of homophobic speech. And early last week, Suns president and CEO Rick Welts came out of the closet, a move that was taken as a hopeful sign that the anti-gay vibe that has pervaded sports for years was finally fading. Guess Noah didn’t get the message. (VIDEO: Suns CEO Rick Welts Announces He’s Gay)Sean Gregory
- Watch: Miami Heat’s Udonis Haslem Dunks Twice on the Bulls May 19, 2011NewsFeed has been watching the saga of the Miami Heat since LeBron James so publicly announced that he, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would be joining forces to form a superteam. We just didn’t believe it would be a superteam. But they’re in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, folks, and they’re silencing people who didn’t have kind things to say about them last summer. One example is the two rolling dunks by the Heat’s Udonis Haslem last night at the expense of the Chicago Bulls’ Derek Rose and Keith Bogans. And not to mention, LeBron James scored 29 points and Miami took game 2 in the series…yadda, yadda, yadda. Just watch the awesome dunks.Madison Gray
- LeBron to Chicago. Or New York. Or Miami. Let the NBA’s Free Agent Frenzy Begin! July 1, 2010At 12:01 a.m this morning, the biggest free-agent season in sports history began, guaranteeing that the NBA landscape will be torn apart and rearranged. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh and a collection of other stars, no longer under contract, can be wooed by teams like the New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, and other franchises with the salary cap flexibility to spend millions. The ringleader of this bunch is James, the self-proclaimed “king.” Even before the clock struck 12, reports indicated that teams were preparing to move in as early as 12:01, filing into his hometown of Akron, pitching James on their grand plans to deliver him his first championship. The New Jersey Nets, Bulls, Knicks, Heat, Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers, his team for the last seven years, are scheduled to meet with James. (See a video of LeBron in action.) So get ready for All-Pro levels of misdirection and misinformation. The sports media is already covering this story as if it were a presidential election, and every NBA “insider” worth his salt will anonymously feed reporters the latest rumors, which will be tweeted in an endless stream of speculation. Already, we’ve heard that LeBron to Chicago is a “done deal,” though that would be pretty difficult to pull off since radio host Stephen A. Smith tweeted that “LeBron James is heading to S. Beach — with Chris Bosh — to team with Dwayne Wade and Pat Riley.” The Knicks are really focusing on Hawks free agent Joe Johnson, since they think he’s a better player than LeBron; but wait, one Knicks exec says “we still think we’re in” the LeBron sweepstakes. Exclusive: by this time next week, you’ll be sick of all the talk, and begging these guys to just pick a team, any team, and play ball.Sean Gregory
