Video: Jimmy Butler Slams Sick Alley-Oop Inbounds Pass From Mike Dunleavy

Jimmy Butler

Thursday night’s match between the Toronto Raptors and the visiting Chicago Bulls proved to be as entertaining as advertised. The Bulls entered the evening with a perfect 4-0 road record, while the Raps had protected their home-turf with a 5-0 home record. The Raptors got off to a great start in the first half, as James Johnson’s thunderous tomahawk against his former team nearly blew the lid off of the Air Canada Centre. Read More »

Video: Mike Dunleavy Gets 10 Stitches & Comes Back On Fire

Mike Dunleavy

Maybe it’s all that time on the New York City subway, but Mike Dunleavy showed some cojones Thursday night in a Bulls blow out of the Rockets. With a little over seven minutes left in the second quarter, Chandler Parsons caught “Dun Dun” (â„… Joakim Noah) and opened up a bloody gash above his right eyebrow. But Dun Dun didn’t let the team down, and he was back on the court for an amazing third quarter. Read More »

Taj Gibson Says Mike Dunleavy Is A “Gangster” For Riding The Subway

Taj Gibson, Mike Dunleavy

The pale specter of Mike Dunleavy resembles a frightful ghost in pigment alone. The 6-9 wing out of Duke nicknamed “the Natural” doesn’t usually inspire a lot of dread in opposing players, but maybe he should. That’s because teammate Taj Gibson recently told the Chicago Tribune‘s K.C. Johnson Dunleavy was a “gangster” for riding the subway. Read More »

Mike Dunleavy Responds To DeMarcus Cousins Calling Him A “Clown”

Mike Dunleavy

When informed by ESPN Chicago’s Mike Friedell yesterday that DeMarcus Cousins had called him a “clown” who was “scared” (presumably of Cousins), Mike Dunleavy responded with a joke about, well, clowning. “I mean, I’d like to respond but clowns can’t talk. So (I can) mime or (give him) some animal balloons or something. Oh man.” It gets better from there. Read More »

DeMarcus Cousins Says Mike Dunleavy Is A Scared Clown

DeMarcus Cousins

The Kings – Bulls game featured all sorts of weird subplots despite the Kings winning handily on their home court, 99-70. There was the epic Joakim Noah ejection and the missed Derrick Williams dunk. But DeMarcus Cousins‘ post-game question and answer with reporters at his locker might have been the best subplot of them all. When asked whether Cousins would send Mike Dunleavy a Christmas card, Cousins called him a clown before adding that Dunleavy was scared. Read More »

Video: Taj Gibson Hits Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater

Ryan Kelly, Taj Gibson

The Lakers and the Bulls provided an entertaining and back-and-forth game in Chicago on Monday night. Nick Young, who finished with 31 points, drained three free throws to force overtime, and hit a step-back jumper to tie the game at 100 in OT. With 0.9 seconds ticks remaining on the clock, Mike Dunleavy had to find and make the perfect pass, and he did not disappoint. From under Chicago’s basket, Dunleavy bounce-passed the ball to Taj Gibson, who cut to the rim, received the dish from Dunleavy, and laid it in at the rim to beat the buzzer. Read More »

Mike Dunleavy, John Wall

The Wizards and Bulls battled it out at the Verizon Center on Friday night, with the Wiz winning a nail-biter, 96-93. Washington’s leader, John Wall, led six Wizards in double-figures with 23 points and 11 dimes. Of his nine field goals, though, one was a whole lot more spectacular than all the rest. Read More »

The first came courtesy of Mike Dunleavy, to force a second overtime. The second featured Glen Davis pulling up well beyond the arc to force a third overtime. In the end, Chicago was victorious in their second Triple OT game of the season. Read More »
