Father & All-Star, Elton Brand, Has Seen It All During His 15-Year Career

Elton Brand

It’s impossible not to picture the regal bearing of Elton Brand every time he drops another gem of knowledge on us. Whether it’s about the game, or about life in general, there aren’t many people — let alone professional athletes — who can offer up such poignant moments from their lives. During our conversation with the power forward last month, before he embarked on his 16th season in the NBA, we got a first-hand account of a career that’s spanned decades. He’s seen and done most everything, and entering possibly his final season, the man teammates simply call “OG” is finally taking some time to appreciate how unique an opportunity this whole NBA thing has been. Just don’t embarrass him by asking about his time slinging rhymes. Read More »

Tom Thibodeau Says Jimmy Butler Has Been “Incredible” And Is “A Star”

Jimmy Butler

No one can accuse Bulls coach Tom Thiboeau of fawning praise over one of his player’s performances — he expects excellence. The hardscrabble helmsman with the voice like gravel isn’t one to coddle anyone, but after Jimmy Butler tied his career high with 32 points in a losing effort to the Nuggets last night, Thibs couldn’t but praise his maturing 3&D wing.

GIF: Danilo Gallinari’s “Bella” Circus Shot That Didn’t Count

Danilo Gallinari

With a little over two minutes remaining in the Bulls-Nuggets game in Denver last night, Danilo Gallinari was pinned along the far sideline with the shot clock running down. His miracle heave beyond the three-point line fell true as the shot clock buzzer sounded; too bad a review showed he’d stepped out of bounds. Read More »

Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau Says Derrick Rose Is “Not Real Comfortable”

Derrick Rose

Good news for the Chicago Bulls: A marginalized Derrick Rose is still pretty damn good. After scoring 18 points and dishing five assists during his first game back from last week’s hamstring strain in a tough win against the Utah Jazz, Tom Thibodeau said that Rose is still “not real comfortable.” Read More »

Jimmy Butler On His Bulls: “Hell Yeah, It’s A Championship Team.”

Jimmy Butler, Terrence Ross

Thank the basketball Gods the Bulls still have a healthy Jimmy Butler — take note John Paxson and Gar Forman. The 3&D stud has upped this game this year, and helped the Bulls survive another rash of injuries that have kept Derrick Rose and free agent acqusition Pau Gasol during stretches already this season. Sure, they’d like to be in better position than their 8-5 record through the season’s first 13 games, but if it weren’t for Butler, we’re not sure they’d even be above .500. For the Chicago wing, their somewhat pedestrian record doesn’t matter because he’s pretty confident Chicago is a championship team, as you’ll see. Read More »

Video: Derrick Rose Didn’t Steal Kid’s Shirt; Just Getting Him More Signatures

Derrick Rose

Last night Derrick Rose again sat out a Bulls game — he’s missed seven of Chicago’s first 12 games (sad face emoticon) — while his team got crushed by the freight train known as DeMarcus Cousins. Despite wearing a suit on the sidelines, video surfaced of D-Rose taking a kids Bulls jersey before heading to the locker-room prompting some to speculate he stole the kid’s shirt. Read More »

GIF: DeMarcus Cousins Threads The Needle In Another Kings Win

DeMarcus Cousins

The Kings keep rolling and we couldn’t be happier for the people of Sacramento, who have waited more than a decade for a semi-return to prominence. They were even slated in to a national TV slot last night when they defeated the Bulls, 103-88, behind 22 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and one steal and block for DeMarcus Cousins. One of his dimes shows off all the things he’s improved since coming into the league in 2010. Read More »
