Brian Bahr — Getty Images Chicago sports in general are in a very bad place right now. Not one major franchise is expected to contend for a championship anytime soon, and fans are beyond fed up. They tweet, call into sports radio, vent to their friends and do whatever else gets other people to listen to them. But as easy as it is to be critical of the present and apparent lack of a promising future, it’s even easier to complain about past misdeeds. The breakup of the Bulls’ dynasty remains a very sore spot for Chicagoans, and they’ve never forgiven or forgotten those who were behind ..read more

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports 2023 was an overall frustrating season to be a Bulls fan. The underachieving team somehow made the 2023 Play-In Tournament but couldn’t make the actual playoffs. After an offseason that barely moved the franchise’s needle, the new season began with more underachieving, but the final month of the year saw the team try to dig itself out of the hole it had created. We’ll cover all this and more in our six biggest Bulls stories over the past 12 months: Photo by Dean Mouhtaropoulos/Getty Images Bulls win in Paris The Bulls had the opportunity of a l ..read more

The Chicago Bulls Are Fun Again: Will It Last?
Chicago Bulls Confidential
by Michael Walton II
7M ago
Increased ball-movement and a commitment to 3-pt shots made the Bulls look like a different team, but how long will this last? If you took a shot for every time someone from the Chicago Bulls organization mentioned their “shot profile,” you would be quite drunk right now. It was their common mantra, an “improved shot profile” and playing with pace would fix issues with a Bulls offense that felt more doomed because of the personnel. But it was commendable, because if you weren’t going to change the roster, you simply had to do something to juice an offense that is among the worst in the NB ..read more

Unfortunately for younger Bulls fans, nostalgia season is never over. Michael Jordan and Jerry Reinsdorf during MJ’s retirement ceremony, Jan. 13, 1999. The Bulls have not reached the NBA Finals since then, with only five playoff series wins. (Getty images) You deserve more than an old fan’s nostalgia. Unfortunately for you, nostalgia season is never over. The high season? Sure, the high season ends. It starts April 24, picks up at Memorial Day weekend and runs to June 20. The peak of high season is June 14, the day of the ‘92 comeback and The Last Shot. You weren’t around for those ..read more

All Credit To Coby: Key Improvements Fuel Solid Year 4 For White
Chicago Bulls Confidential

1y ago
The Bulls have had a rough go of it —honestly, a bit of an understatement — when it comes to developing young talent. A quick survey of the league and it does not take long to find several young players who have made large strides after leaving Chicago, Lauri Markkanen’s 2023 All-Star rise being the most recent example. The Bulls are hoping 2019 №7 overall pick Coby White doesn’t fall to a similar fate of hitting his stride outside of Chicago. Of course, keeping White on the roster will largely be up to the Bulls front office–yes, we know, realistically, ownership is making this cal ..read more

Scouting Report: Bulls vs. Knicks Part 3 by Michael Walton II

1y ago
Chicago has lost their last two games vs. New York by a combined score of 242–211. Can they avoid the season-sweep in the third and final matchup? The first two Bulls games against the Knicks this season had very different game flows but — unfortunately for Bulls Nation — the same result. Two losses, one in OT and another one where New York dismantled the Bulls offense, holding them to 91 points. New York is certainly improved with 2015 Illinois Mr. Basketball Jalen Brunson leading the charge, but — if Chicago still plans to be a serious postseason threat — this Knicks team should n ..read more

The Bulls’ offense ranked 26th in Offensive Rating over their recent 4-game losing streak. We put together a few ideas that could give the Bulls a spark moving forward. 1. More Postups For DeMar DeRozan I know, I know, I know…it’s not 1996 more postups is not the solution to every offensive problem, but in this specific case…it could help. Michael Walton on Twitter: "This but for DeRozan please https://t.co/AeRnY8QBmu / Twitter" This but for DeRozan please https://t.co/AeRnY8QBmu Last season, DeMar DeMar’s post-up frequency was around 6.3%. That figure is down to 5.4% so far in ..read more

2022–23 Bulls Player Previews: Backcourt
Chicago Bulls Confidential
by Geoffrey Clark
1y ago
Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports The Bulls enter the 2022–23 season with a group of guards that can best be described as variety. You have a proven star that was just locked up, a very good player who just wants to be healthy enough, a couple of reliable veterans and young players who are looking to prove themselves. Basically, if you’re looking for any type of player known to exist, the Bulls’ backcourt is the place to find them. In addition to the variety of guards, each one of them is intriguing in their own way. Take a look at this list and say you wouldn’t want to find out mor ..read more

Could Patrick Williams Succeed In A Long-Term 6th Man Role?
Chicago Bulls Confidential
by Michael Walton II
1y ago
Patrick Williams’ 6th Man Audition vs. Denver Nuggets Billy Donovan downplayed the decision to bring Williams off the bench but if it continues, it could be a key point in his development. Patrick Williams was only a somewhat known commodity in the 2020 NBA Draft. Williams was the reigning 2020 ACC 6th Man of the Year and had the obvious measurements, attitude and shooting touch to project as an effective, long-time NBA forward. That being said, his relative lack of experience — especially in a lead role — brings up plenty of fair questions about what is a reasonable expectation for ..read more

Who Is The Best Starting PG Option For The Bulls?
Chicago Bulls Confidential
by Michael Walton II
1y ago
Best Starting Option For The Bulls in Lonzo Ball’s absence? Lonzo Ball’s uncertain status puts the Bulls in a familiar spot, searching for answers at PG as the season starts. There has been much made about who should be the Bulls starting point guard in the seemingly indefinite absence of Lonzo Ball. To some degree it won’t matter because he will be back one day–but, of course, it does matter to a great extent–because any regular season success the Bulls have over the 2022–23 season will be in large part because of the job done by Ball’s replacement in the starting lineup ..read more
