Joakim Noah is the perfect player for Chicago Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau. Both of these men have a non-stop desire for the game of basketball. They’re both intensely competitive and value winning above almost anything else. Sure, the Center position is slowly going extinct, but Joakim Noah has developed into one of the better players to man the position. Noah’s fiery competitiveness has made him an All Star.
And Joakim’s fiery competitiveness also got in major trouble last night.
Chicago Bulls legend Dennis Rodman made international waves this month due to his trip to North Korea and his attempt at diplomacy through basketball exhibition games. “The Worm” has befriended North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and even once sent out a tweet asking Kim to release American prisoner Kenneth Bae.
In a New Day exclusive, CNN’s Chris Cuomo will sit down live with basketball star Dennis Rodman.
Kate Upton is back in the sports news again. Kate Upton is back with Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander, the gossip columns are “reporting.” This time Kate Upton won’t be able to neither confirm nor deny the relationship like last time.
Chicago Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau is dealing with gossiping and rumor mongering of his own. There are stories circulating that Coach Thibs is going to bolt the Bulls and Coach the New York Knicks next NBA season. Also, everyone seems to think Carmelo Anthony is coming over from the Knicks to the Bulls. Prompting this soundbite:
D.J. Augustin is a piece the Bulls must retain this summer. Chicago needs a quality backup to their franchise player.
Through his first three seasons, star point guard Derrick Rose missed a total of six regular season games, won the league’s Most Valuable Player Award and appeared to be on his way to becoming one of the dominant players of his era. For the Bulls to prioritize a backup point guard then would have been the equivalent of the Baltimore Orioles drafting shortstops out of concern that Cal Ripken was too brittle.
However, by this season’s end, Rose, felled by injuries, will have played in just 49 of the Bulls’ 230 regular season games over his last three seasons.
Syracuse University coach Jim Boeheim, Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, and New Orleans Pelicans head coach and former USA Basketball player Monty Williams were announced as USA Basketball Men’s National Team assistant coaches for 2013-16 by USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo.
Colangelo is an Illini and a South Suburbanite by the way!
Duke “not just a basketball coach, but a leader who happens to coach basketball” Mike Krzyzewski will return to lead the USA National Team program for a third quadrennium. And no, I have no clue what a quadrennium is.
“To have Tom Thibodeau join us, I think his reputation speaks for itself. He was a great assistant who has become an outstanding pro coach, and nobody wants to play the Bulls. The toughness that they show, their togetherness, their competitiveness, and the preparation that is there, that is shown by he and his staff,” Coach K. said.
Here you’ll see an Overtime buzzer beater lay in from Taj Gibson. It gets the Chicago Bulls a 102-100 OT win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Dropping LAL to 2-2 on the “Grammy Road Trip.”
Taj Gibson is a legitimate starting four, and here he displays that he’s clutch too. The talent and ability of Taj Gibson are the reason that GarPax will have no second thoughts at all about amnestying Carlos Boozer at the end of the 2013-14 NBA season.
During the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, the focus of Chicago Bulls’ fans was singular and clear: root for the Bulls to win championships. What a difference two seasons makes with consecutive season-ending injuries to star point guard Derrick Rose and the trade last week of two-time All-Star forward Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers. What follows are three of many issues Bulls’ fans should remain focused on now that this season’s script has been altered so dramatically. [Read more...]

Behance.net seems to be the origin of this one. And it’s getting all around the sports blogosphere this week. I saw it on both Yardbarker and SB Nation. It’s NBA team logos redesigned as European football club emblems or “soccer badges,” as we would say stateside. It’s a very ambitious and creative project. That’s our Chicago Bulls above.
