Random Bull

Stress fracture. Not even a real broken bone.
Tibia—what is that, a genus of flowers? The implication in some of what you read and hear about Luol Deng's injury is that it's not much of an injury. And if it's not much of an injury, then it doesn't take a GPS device and a full tank of gas to reach the conclusion that he's being a baby.

Still not over D-Wade - 

What the hell? Seriously, what the hell?! The Bulls played one of their best games of the season, but Wade went all God Mode on them, scoring 48 points on 15-for-21 from the field [!!] and 5-for-6 from downtown [!!!]. And let's talk about those threes. One was a 32-footer to beat the halftime buzzer. One tied the game with 11.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. And his final triple -- which came off a steal that robbed the Bulls of their final possession and a chance to win it at the end of the second overtime -- was a crazy running lightning bolt of a buzzer beat that won the game. This wasn't just crazy, it was crazy-insane.
Re-sign BG.

Bull signed Linton Johnson to a 10-day contract.

Dreaming big

Next year, Wade will be a free agent. Thanks in part to their deadline deals, the Bulls have available cap space. Wade grew up in Robbins dreaming of being Michael Jordan. Here’s his chance. If he signed with the Bulls it could be 1991 all over again. Imagine it.

Derrick Rose and Wade, two local boys, the modern day Jordan and Pippen, leading the Bulls back to glory.

It not only seems plausible but logical until you realize it almost never happens. Sadly for the Bulls, superstar free-agents rarely leave their teams. Rules have been established to discourage it. As much as we want it to happen it rarely does, as much as we like to think it’s not all about the money it almost always is.
