December 25th, 2012 at 12:01 AM
In the spirit of Christmas, I'll keep this short. Omer Asik is making his triumphant return to the United Center as a member of the Houston Rockets. Pretty much everything I wrote the last time the Chicago Bulls took on the Rockets still applies. However, the Rockets seem to have kicked...

December 12th, 2012 at 3:47 PM
When last the Chicago Bulls visited the city of brotherly love, CJ Watson made a stupid pass to Omer Asik, who missed two free throws and was forced to foul Andre Iguodala, who made the game-winning free throws to vanquish the Bulls form the playoffs. Now, 7 months later, precisely none...

Chicago Bulls (5-5) at Houston Rockets (4-7) Preview: Old Friends
November 21st, 2012 at 10:27 AM
Omer Asik wasn't the first domino to fall in the Chicago Bulls' depressing offseason, but he was the largest. Faced with potentially paying the luxury tax for the first time ever, the Bulls had a decision to make when Asik signed a 3 year, $25 million offer sheet with the Houston...

October 22nd, 2012 at 7:00 AM
Hello there! For the second consecutive year, I am putting entirely too much effort into previewing the NBA season. Last year, I tried to cram everything into two parts — three, actually, if you include the preview for just the Bulls — but that was impractical and not particularly well...

All right, the schedule's out. We know when and where the Bulls will be playing this year. Let's face it, though: After the events of this offseason so far, we pretty much know how the season will turn out. The Bulls, behind the genius of Tom Thibodeau, will compete and...

Bulls’ Free Agency Dominos Starting to Fall
July 23rd, 2012 at 1:53 PM
Things are starting to happen for the Bulls. Not necessarily good things — although that depends mostly on your point of view — but things nonetheless. After it was reported that Nazr Mohammed would be signing with the Bulls on Saturday, the Bulls officially announced the signing of former Bull Kirk...

Nazr Mohammed Reportedly Joining Chicago Bulls; Omer Asik Out?
July 22nd, 2012 at 5:32 PM
So, good news, better news and bad news. The good news is that a Bulls free agent target is actually intending to sign with them. The better news is that the signee is not Darko Milicic, but rather Nazr Mohammed, a veteran center formerly a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The...

July 20th, 2012 at 10:53 PM
Hey, remember how the Bulls were going to get OJ Mayo to be their shooting guard? Yeah...about that... ***PHOTO1*** That was Monday evening, and things have really only gone downhill from there.

July 12th, 2012 at 2:24 PM
As the Chicago Bulls continue to try to trade Kyle Korver, wait for Omer Asik to sign his offer sheet and show no interest in Dwight Howard, they did release a bit of news that some may or may not find interesting. That would be the roster that will participate in...

Omer Asik Offer Sheet: to Match or not to Match?
July 5th, 2012 at 8:36 PM
***PHOTO1*** It's been a few days since Chicago Bulls restricted free agent Omer Asik and the Houston Rockets came to terms on a three-year, $25.1 million deal, and I'm still not totally sure what the right call would be here. My initial reaction was "no way in hell do the Bulls...

Chicago Bulls Bullets: Free Agency Rumor Round Up
July 2nd, 2012 at 11:06 PM
So after 30+ hours of not having any power, I'm finally back in business. Considering this is currently one of the craziest times in the NBA, it was certainly not the most ideal time to lose power. Sure I was able to get brief updates on my phone, but that...
