Ricky O’Donnell of BlogaBull.com returns to the show to discuss the hottest team in the league on the heels of dismantling the New York Knicks. Naturally, we also discuss Melo’s impending free agency, Jimmer’s potential impact on the Bulls, and Joakim’s award-worthy season.
We reflect on the Bulls’ loss to the Heat and what was going right before their 5 game win streak ended Sunday afternoon. We also examine the trade deadline and how the buyout market may impact the Bulls.
We react to the recent reports speculating Carmelo Anthony to the Bulls, but before diving into the polarizing all-star, we break down the last two games and try to figure out what’s wrong with Jimmy Butler.
We discuss how the Bulls continue to thrive led by Joakim Noah and DJ Augustin. Could the Bulls actually be better without Luol Deng? Is Derrick Rose simply a product of Thibs’ system? Despite potential eye rolls, we also dive into the possibility of Derrick Rose returning this spring and whether poor minutes management is a fire-able offense.
We analyze the streaking Bulls, winners of 5 straight and sitting in 5th place of the Leastern Conference. We also dissect Joakim Noah’s recent comments against tanking and predict where the Bulls go from here now that the dust from the Luol Deng trade has settled.
I’m back! …As a special guest on a new episode of The Bulls Show. I linked up with Mitch, Nillz, and E last night to look for the positives after the second straight Bulls loss in which we haven’t scored at least 80 points. The Bulls have lost 9 of their last 11 (7 of 9 without Rose) and so we look ahead to the Bulls’ chances of making the playoffs in the weak Eastern Conference and also discuss what we all thought of last week’s Derrick Rose press conference.
So what are those positives? Well, we dream ahead about the “Euro Hero” Nikola Mirotic and provide the internet with the most in-depth breakdown of this week’s viral video from Knicks fan Billy to feel better about the loss to New York last night. In fact, watch that below (and you’ll understand the episode cover art), then zoom ahead to the 45 minute mark if you can’t wait for said breakdown.
PLUS, this isn’t the only show we recorded last night — we broke off on an extended tangent and extensive discussion about Kanye going from Nike to adidas and Drake signing with the Jordan Brand that it’s going to be its own (and first) sideshow.
