Jeff Van Gundy TOTALLY RIPS Bulls over Thibodeau firing


tom thibodeau chicago bulls

In the bitter divorce between the Chicago Bulls organization and former Coach Tom Thibodeau, there’s nobody to root for. We’ll cover all of that in a bit, but first ESPN Analyst Jeff Van Gundy went “studio gangsta” on the Bulls again. Like he did during the regular season.

Maybe labeling Van Gundy a “studio gangsta” is unfair since almost all of his points are spot on.

Chicago Bulls Fred Hoiberg product rollout is Tuesday


fred hoiberg iowa state

Iowa State Coach, make that Iowa State Coach Fred Hoiberg met with the Chicago Bulls today to finalize his new deal with the club. The Bulls will hold a product rollout, or as these are formally called in the business, an “introductory press conference” tomorrow at 2pm.

Of course, this development we all saw coming since shortly after the NBA All-Star break. Everyone knew Tom Thibodeau was being dismissed at the end of the season, and everyone knew Fred Hoiberg was going to be his replacement. A failed online grass roots campaign to keep Hoiberg in Ames, Iowa couldn’t stop this transaction from happening.

Campaign to keep Fred Hoiberg at Iowa St. raises only $20


Fred Hoiberg Iowa State

Is Fred Hoiberg leaving Iowa State to become the next Chicago Bulls Head Coach? Does a bear defecate the woods?

The Bulls desire to dismiss Tom Thibodeau was the worst kept secret of the 2014-15 NBA season. The rift between Thibs and the front office was been common knowledge for years. The Bulls “coaching search” is done. It’s one name long, and we’ve all known it since February.

Fred Hoiberg favorite to replace Tom Thibodeau

Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg is the favorite to be Tom Thibodeau’s replacement, reports ESPN’s Marc Stein. Hoiberg has been rumored to Chicago for a very long time and was recently quoted as stating that his dream is to coach in the NBA.

If Hoiberg doesn’t happen, and there’s no reason to believe it shouldn’t, then the replacement for Thibs is likely to be former Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin.

Chicago Bulls championship window closed; so now what?

As long as Lebron James is healthy and in his prime, the Chicago Bulls are not going to the NBA Finals any time soon. You knew that before the series with the Cleveland Cavaliers series, but denial kept you from acknowledging it. The Bulls won’t get past Lebron next year or the year after that; unless you have a plate tectonic shift in the NBA.

Yes, the NBA Eastern Conference is the AAA affiliate of the Western Conference, which gives the Bulls a chance, but hey, there’s still that Lebron guy.

Michael Jordan over Lebron poll proves AMERICA IS DUMB


michael-jordan-yvette-prieto

Lots of people in America are REALLY DUMB. Many are dumb enough to think climate change isn’t real (looking at you Senator James Inhofe, Chairman of the Environmental committee). A lot of other people are dumb to think evolution isn’t real and the Earth is only 6,000 years old (looking at you L.A. Clippers Power Forward and Creationist Blake Griffin)

Then you have a lot of Americans who believe Michael Jordan would beat Lebron James in a game of one-on-one RIGHT NOW! Not when both were in their prime, but right now.

Pelicans favorite to land Tom Thibodeau; Magic main competition

When Tom Thibodeau is officially let go from the Chicago Bulls it will surprise……no one. Seriously, everyone knows this is coming. Even in the inhabited caves of Tora Bora on the Afghanistan/Pakistan border they’re thinking that Tom Thibodeau is not returning to the Bulls.

Well, okay, they probably don’t follow the NBA much in remote, semi-civilized areas controlled by terrorists, but you get the idea. Thibodeau and GarPax don’t get along, it’s been well documented for years, so he’ll be shown the door soon.

VIDEO: John Oliver parodies Chicago Bulls pregame intros


john-oliver-liverpool

John Oliver struck gold again last night. Before we get to him, we need to remind the reader of the origination of this segment. The Chicago Bulls were THE FIRST NBA team to dim their lights and play loud pump-up music during the introduction of the starting lineup at home games.

Other teams around the league soon followed suit. Then it spilled over into other sports. During the Bulls’ dynasty, the player introductions became world famous. Thousands of weddings during the early and mid ’90s ripped off the Bulls intro when trotting out the bridal party.
