John Supowitz | May 19th, 2020

The Goat vs a Tiger: A Battle Between Michael Jordan and the Tiger King?

Alex Kielar | May 17th, 2020

I know what you’re thinking, this year has been crazy and weird enough without a hypothetical meeting between the greatest basketball player of all time (sit down LeBron riders) and a crazy tiger zoo owner. It’s May 2020 and I thought I would be writing about the Yankees being already at least ten games ahead in the AL East, not whatever this is. But here we are. “The Last Dance” and “Tiger King” have been the two most-watched shows during this quarantine, making this only right.

Chicago Bulls 2020 Season: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Garrett Brooks | May 16th, 2020

The Bulls (finally) brought in a new front office to turn the franchise around, hiring Arturas Karnisovas to lead the charge. This offers a much needed fresh look in the front office, and the sky is the limit moving forward. The Bulls 2019-20 season has had glimpses of a bright future. It has also been frustrating to watch at times. Many things can be taken away from this season, and here we are going to break down the good, the bad, and the ugly. Continue reading

Let’s take a look at some of the top 4 rookies that have been spectacular this season.

NBA DFS March 10. Studs and Values

Brandon Braasch | March 10, 2020.

NBA DFS last night was so sickening that it caused our usual writer, Josh Livi to feel under the weather. Hopefully, you were able to avoid the mess the Milwaukee Bucks caused last night. If you were able to avoid that then hopefully, unlike me, you faded Norman Powell. If not, chalk it up to a bad night and hopefully, my players hit big tonight. I’ll provide you with two studs and two values on this big nine-game slate tonight. Continue reading

Deep Dive: Coby White, Consistently Inconsistent

Troy Pierce | February 28th, 2020 

Coby White has been one of the few bright spots for the Chicago Bulls this year. A rocky first ten games set the tone for most of what we’ve seen from the young guard. He is inconsistent on a consistent basis. Perhaps, that will change following White’s third straight 30-plus point performance.

Chicago Bulls Look to end First Half on a High Note

Troy Pierce | February 11th, 2020

There has not been much to be excited about this season if you are a Chicago Bulls fan. All-Star Weekend should have been a cause for celebration, and for the most part, it has been; it’s the first time in 35 that NBA All-Star Weekend has graced the Windy City. Continue reading

Bulls vs Heat reaction

Jacari McRae | December 9th, 2019

For the first time this season, at home, the Miami Heat had to break a sweat to come out victorious. Despite their record, the Chicago Bulls threw the first punch and lead the Heat by nine after the first period. Even though the Heat won the next two quarters, the game was still in doubt. But in the end, the Heat prevailed. Miami moves to 17-6 for the season.

Here are my takeaways from the team’s 110-105 victory over the Bulls.

Factor Five: NBA Daily Fantasy Picks For DraftKings, FanDuel (Friday, Dec 6)

Chris Giordani | December 6th, 2019

Holiday shopping season has come into full stride for 2019, and with the first weekend in December upon us, I’m certain that a number of us will be out in Winter [foot] traffic trying to compile a multitude of gifts for a number of different personalities and preference-types. This is despite the fingertip-driven, Amazon-same-day society we currently live in that requires we go outside of our typical comfort zone of online orders and pause buttons.

“What might this have to do with Friday NBA Daily Fantasy, Chris?” you may be asking.

We’re forced by the simple science of laziness prevailing over all else to make the easiest pivots and secondary options in life. And when forced outside of our realm of tortoise-paced timeliness and 21st century First World conveniences, we’re immediately befuddled with indecision or haphazardly hair-trigger reactions.

NBA Power Rankings- Withering away in the Crowd

Pranav Ramasubramanian  | November 29th, 2019 

It’s almost December and at this point, the NBA season has shown what teams came to play to start the season and those that didn’t. It’s no debate who some of the top teams are in the league right now and who needs to reevaluate their approach before it’s too late. Here’s where the teams that need to go back to the drawing board rank. Continue reading

NBA: Central Division Preview

Coach Treal | October 22nd, 2019 

The Central Division might not leap off the page as the best division in basketball from top to bottom, but with the reigning league MVP playing in the conference and so many talented young players looking to turn the corner and potentially have a breakout season, the Central Division is one to keep a close eye on for the upcoming season.

Episode 8: Nick, Gabe, and Teams We Haven’t Talked About Yet

Gabe Botero  | October 2nd, 2019 

Nick and Gabe talk about the youth movement in basketball with the young stars on the Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks, and Atlanta Hawks. There’s a Media Day roundup that has us ready for the season even more so than we were before. Has Adam Silver gone too far with the new tampering rules and is LaMelo Ball a number one draft pick? Twitter exploded when BleacherReport ranked Curry over Kobe in their All-Time list; one of us thinks this is fair but the other thinks it’s ridiculous. Continue reading

Rookie Report: 2019 Summer League Edition

Troy Pierce | July 25th, 2019

The 2019 NBA Summer League has ended, and the Rookie Report has returned!

Today I’ll be taking a look at some of the top rookies from this years’ Summer League. While the competition in Summer League isn’t close to what the NBA game has to offer, these games do still serve a purpose (even if it’s just to feed into the fans’ basketball addictions). Continue reading

The Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, and Orlando Magic all have interest in trading for DeMar DeRozan. Continue reading

Chicago Bulls Interested in Lonzo Ball

Troy Pierce | May 21st, 2019

Last Tuesdays Draft Lottery helped give a better idea of what this NBA offseason will look like for the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls had high hopes of landing one of the first two picks in the 2019 draft but, unfortunately, the ping pong balls did not bounce their way as they were projected to grab the fourth slot. However, they found themselves with the seventh overall selection. That’s an unfortunate fall when you look at what Chicago is missing out on, one Zion Williamson and one Ja Morant. Either player would have been a key piece in a rebuild that has been marginally successful but is trending in the right direction. Continue reading

Bovada Releases Odds- What Could be LeBron’s Next Destination

Jacari McRae    | May 10th, 2019

The Lakers are a mess right now.

First, there was Magic Johnson abruptly stepping down from his front office position. Then, there was the coaching stall with Lebron James’ former coach Tyronn Lue, who reportedly turned down the Lakers’ three-year $18 million offer. What’s even crazier is the idea that the Lakers should trade Lebron James, who doesn’t have a no-trade clause in his contract. Continue reading

The Definitive Winner: ’96 Bulls vs. Present-Day Warriors

David Lehr | January 21st, 2019

I know what you’re thinking: Dear Lord, make this debate stop! Truly, this is one of those arguments that is a vicious cycle and one that will never die. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a correct answer; let’s assume the 1996 Chicago Bulls and present-day Golden State Warriors are playing in the Finals, and check out how these teams stack up player-by-player.

The Weekly Nugget: January 12-19

Zach Gotlieb | January 20th, 2019

A week defined by blowouts. There were 4 games on the slate for this week, all at home and the Denver Nuggets went 3-1. Key performances came from Jamal Murray, Malik Beasley, and Paul Millsap brought huge lifts to the team. The MVP of the week, however, has to go to none other than Nikola Jokic. He averaged 23.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 9.8 assists per game. Here is your recap of each game from this week.

Seven Trade Options for the Houston Rockets to Replace Clint Capela

Mike Fanelli | January 17th, 2019

Back from the dead, the Houston Rockets have won 14 of their last 18 games and are currently the fourth seed in the Western Conference mainly because James Harden is playing like a mad man. During the winning streak, Harden is averaging 40.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 8.9 assists and 38.4 minutes per game while registering five 30 point triple-doubles. The Rockets have been killed by injuries recently and now rising star center Clint Capela is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a thumb injury.

He Fell: How Derrick Rose Came Back

Liam Romero | January 9th, 2019

When NBA fans hear ‘Derrick Rose‘ the first thing many think of is the horrendous list of injuries he’s endured throughout his career. The youngest MVP in NBA history began his ordeal with injuries right after his MVP season in 2011 with the Chicago Bulls. Every season since, Rose faced injury after injury, many of which were serious and believed to be career-ending. Now, with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Rose has blossomed into a player fans thought they’d never see again. During Rose’s return to Chicago on December 26, he was showered with MVP chants from his hometown fans. Who would have ever thought D-Rose would have such a comeback? How did he do it?

Who In the NBA Was Waived This Week?

Josh Elias | January 8th, 2019

The NBA has a lot of different deadlines. There’s the trade deadline in February, which is one of my favorite days of the year, the mid-season resigning deadline, the deadline to submit playoff-eligible rosters, and the deadline that a team can have a maximum of 15 full-time players and 2 two-way players by the end of the preseason.
