The Charlotte Bobcats could not have had a worse season. Actually, if winning 7 of 66 games isn’t embarrassing enough, it would be even more embarrassing if the Bobcats didn’t end up getting the #1 pick in the June draft. This team has a lot of improving to do and it starts with cleaning house. … [Read more...] about NBA Draft: Where Do The Charlotte Bobcats Go From Here?
So many failed experiments, and finally the Chicago Bulls have found their big man. By my count, I have ten failures by the organization at the power forward position: Elton Brand, Tyrus Thomas, Tyson Chandler, Drew Gooden, PJ Brown, Andres Nocioni, Michael Sweetney, Lonny Baxter, Antonio Davis and Donyell Marshall. Almost all were expected at one point to deliver the … [Read more...] about Carlos Boozer can be Robin to Derrick Rose’s Batman
The Chicago Bulls traded Tyrus Thomas to the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for Ronald “Flip” Murray and Acie Law. Chicago also received a future first round draft pick from Charlotte. … [Read more...] about Breaking: Bulls Finally Jettison Tyrus Thomas
By Paul M. Banks Did you hear the Chicago Bulls are close to dealing embattled forward Tyrus Thomas (and next year's second round pick) to the Boston Celtics for Glen "Big Baby" Davis? No?

By Paul M. Banks The young season has certainly been very rough for Tyrus Thomas so far. Although we're just 5 games in, he's already had a spat with Coach Vinny Del Negro over playing time, and seen his contract extension with the Bulls declined. On the exact same day he was told there was no long term place for him in Chicago, he also missed a game versus Milwaukee with … [Read more...] about TYRUS THOMAS EXPECTED TO MISS 4-6 WEEKS
By Paul M. Banks Last season, the Chicago Bulls experienced a dramatically positive growth spurt. A team that actually lost at home to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the early part of the season grew together and gelled enough to qualify for the postseason. And in those playoffs, they gave the defending World Champion Boston Celtics all they could handle in a physical … [Read more...] about Vinny Del Negro’s Chicago Bulls Preseason Assessments
By Paul M. Banks Did the Chicago Bulls send a message to incumbent starting power forward Tyrus Thomas Thursday night by drafting two power forwards? By using both of their first round draft picks on prospects who play the four, the Chicago front office seems to be telling us one of two things. Either a.) Coach Vinny Del Negro, GM Gar Forman and company are unhappy with … [Read more...] about Bulls Send Message to Tyrus Thomas in Draft
By Paul M. Banks When the magical Bulls-Celtics first round playoff series started, most of Chicago just wasn’t very excited. I mean who gets all warm and tingly about a 41-41 team sneaking into the playoffs? This was the same squad that resided in the bottom rung of the league in February, and had a joke of a head coach and an ugly home loss to the OKC Thunder on their … [Read more...] about 2009 NBA Off-Season: Chicago Bulls
