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.

Derrick Rose Bulls

The Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose has made headlines this NBA preseason for saying essentially “why can’t I be MVP? Why not Derrick Rose becoming the best player in the league?”

Awareness of this video comes to us via Docksquad Sports. The ad features Ken Jeong, and as we all know, anything with the Spanish teacher on “Community”/the L.A.I.R.E King in “Role Models”/crazy naked guy in trunk from “The Hangover” equals pure awesome.

After the from the snow Chicago’s historic blizzard melted, a hybrid of “Roses” bloomed in the middle of the brutal winter.

Then he went out and showed why they made a wise decision. It was another pretty rose for the bouquet. Here are my top ten.

Rose, Bulls About to Elevate Another Level as Boozer Returns

derrick rose bulls

It’s been a long time since the Chicago Bulls have entered December in a position as favorable as this. They’re in first place by a game over the surprising Indiana Pacers, their biggest threat to the division, the Milwaukee Bucks, have spent most of November east bound and down, and they actually finished the dreaded circus trip with a winning record of 4-3.

Usually, the circus road trip is like the set-up of a George Lopez joke: you just know complete failure in the task at hand is about to occur.

And on top of all these good vibes, the Bulls’ superstar, Derrick Rose is elevating his game to another level. This NBA season will only get better for Chicago as Carlos Boozer may return Wednesday night versus Orlando. With Booze now being served, Rose and company have that dynamic second option in place, and things are about to take off.

Chicago Bulls should draft OSU’s James Anderson

james anderson

The Chicago Bulls could use a good perimeter scorer, someone who can really light it up from deep. Even though Kirk Hinrich played out of his mind for a couple games of the first round series loss to Cleveland, he’s not that guy.

John Salmons was not that guy, and the Bulls haven’t had “that guy” since Ben Gordon left town. Chicago doesn’t really shoot a whole lot of threes, because there isn’t anyone truly dependable out there beyond the arc to consistently drain them. New coach Tom Thibodeau will be looking to add this dimension to the offense next season.

Oklahoma State’s James Anderson, who should be available when the Bulls pick in the NBA Draft, could just be “that guy.”
