It’s like the Beatles song “Hello, Goodbye.” The Chicago Bulls today signed guard Mike James minutes ago to a 10-day contract.  This will be his third stint with the team. James theme song really is “you say goodbye, I say hello…I say stay, you say go.” The Bulls are also James’ 11th NBA team.

Eleventh time is the charm, right? Yep, because James is here to stay. The Bulls signed him for the remainder of the year…well, that’s only a few games, but still.

It’s like the Beatles song “Hello, Goodbye.” The Chicago Bulls today signed guard Mike James minutes ago to a 10-day contract.  This will be his third stint with the team. James theme song really is “you say goodbye, I say hello…I say stay, you say go.” The Bulls are also James’ 11th NBA team.

Eleventh time is the charm right.

James, (6-2, 190), will be in uniform tonight when the Bulls take on the Miami Heat at the United Center at 8:30 p.m. (CT). This will be a “bit of an important game” in regards to NBA playoff seeding. However, don’t read too much into the results. As we learned last year, the team that wins the regular season meeting doesn’t exactly indicate who wins the playoff meeting.

Heat 85, Bulls 75: Miami Takes Boring Slogfest in Game 2

Now that the series shifts to Miami, I’m ready for all of my media brethren to run one of these two cliches into the ground. Either a.) Will Smith’s song from 1999 “I’m going to Miami, Bienvenidos a Miami” or last summer’s “I’m taking my talents to South Beach.” Either way, I’m about to throw up on my shoes.

-Don’t act so shocked that Chicago Bulls dropped this one. You knew this series was going 7, or at least 6 whether the Miami Heat win it or not. I did say in my game 1 reaction “there’s NO WAY Chicago keeps up their 10-21 from 3pt range for this series.” I’m not calling myself Bankstradamus for that. Too easy, too obvious. However, I didn’t think the  Bulls would revert to an UGLY 3-20 from behind the arc.

-If there was any NBA playoff game that you had to miss, this would be it. Chicago set a playoff record with just 10 4th quarter points. Lebron James had 9 in the 4th all by himself.
