Bulls Kyle Korver Saves Life of Snapping Turtle

“I like turtles.”

the famous YouTube sensation kid who was given a “web redemption” on Tosh.0 this past season. Here’s the remix of the turtles kid.

Who says there’s no new Chicago Bulls and NBA news. We have media sensations like the heart-warming tale of Bulls two-guard Kyle Korver and his saving of a snapping turtle’s life

via A turtle, a DJ, an ex-76er, and a second chance – Philly.com.

It was Kyle Korver, an ex-76er who plays for the Chicago Bulls. Korver, a friend of Robert’s who still spends time in the area, coincidentally was driving by.

“There was blood everywhere,” Korver said in an interview. “I didn’t think [the turtle] was going to make it.”

Korver fetched a shopping bag from his SUV. Robert picked up the snapping turtle – a dangerous maneuver, Schubert later told him – and put it in the bag.

Chicago Bulls Looking for Game 2 Vengeance on Atlanta Hawks

Yay. Derrick Rose won the MVP. Let’s celebrate. Yay.

Okay, time to get back to things that are actually, you know, important. Saying the Bulls laid an egg in Game one is an insult to laying eggs.

The Bulls absolutely dominated the Hawks in the regular season winning two out of three games with a margin of victory of 25.5 points. In the game they lost, the Bulls blew a double-digit lead.

The Bulls are better than the Hawks. But No one would believe that if they watched the game Monday night. So what do the Bulls need to do to rebound from their horrid performance in the series-opening game? Let’s discuss.

Kyle Korver Lights Up Bobcats; Stephen Jackson Still Trashes his Game

Last season the Chicago Bulls finished dead last in the NBA in three point field goal percentage. In the summer they went out and got Kyle Korver from Utah. All he did was lead the league in three point shooting percentage. Actually he broke the NBA season record for three point percentage, with a .536 eclipsing that of former Bull Steve Kerr and his .524 in 1994-95.

This year Korver’s in the top 20 in 3 pt% and the Bulls have a team have improved all the up to 12th in the league. In their 106-94 win over the Charlotte Bobcats Tuesday night, Korver went 5-5 from the field, 3-3 from distance.

But it didn’t stop Bobcats star Stephen Jackson from giving Korver’s abilities an extremely back-handed compliment that came off like a blatant insult:

What’s up with the Bulls Shooting Guard Options?

keith_bogans

I never thought the Chicago Bulls would miss Kirk Hinrich this much. But four games into the NBA season, (that means we’re 1/20th of the way through the season already) you can see how he mattered more than we thought he did last summer.

Keith Bogans, the second oldest guy on the Bulls behind Kurt Thomas, is the starter at the shooting guard position. Two new wings imported from Utah, Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver, can also play at that spot.

All have their respective strengths and weaknesses, and so far no single player looks complete enough to be the true “first-string” two guard.

Maybe the Bulls Will Start Making some 3s Now?

Problem solved? Not yet, but it’s getting there.

Korver articulated the key to shooting the three ball.

“It’s practice. It’s mental, you got to believe in in your shot and shoot it like crazy and a short memory helps a lot,” he said.

“We are pleased to welcome Kyle to the Bulls.  He will be a great addition to our team and he will provide another dimension to our offense,” said Chicago Bulls General Manager Gar Forman today.

Korver (6-7, 212), a seven-year veteran of the NBA, spent the last two-plus seasons with the Utah Jazz. He broke into the league with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2003, where he played for four-plus seasons after being drafted in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft (51st overall).
