The last two games against the Knicks were really fun to watch. It's nice to finally have a sports team in Chicago to be paying attention to again.

2005-01-18 12:46:26 AM  
Through thick and thin, baby!

All the hype about the Suns hitting 70 or even breaking 72-10...not on Nash's best day, hahahaha!


2005-01-18 12:48:14 AM  
Doesn't change the fact that the NBA SUCKS!!!

/Baseball and Football. There is no inbetween.

"deeeeeeeeee Bulls"
2005-01-18 12:49:50 AM  
On second thought, maybe the Bulls should put out shirts with the "Through thick and thin" slogan on it...hmm. It'd at least shorten conversations with the "they've sucked for almost 10 years now, HAW!" jerks.



/I'd definitely pick one up
2005-01-18 12:50:26 AM  
woohoo!!! Go Bulls!!!

/finally something to watch in Chicago
2005-01-18 12:50:48 AM

Chicagoan here, and I love my chicago sports teams, but if there is one thing I know, it's don't count your chickens before they're hatched. The bulls are still under .500 people. Nothing to see here.....move along. Call me when they are 10 games over.
2005-01-18 12:59:45 AM  
Um, would now be an appropriate time to say "Go Hornets"?

/(they) got nothin'
2005-01-18 01:01:48 AM  
Wait, people still watch basketball? I thought that was like lacross now.
2005-01-18 01:04:14 AM  
10 years? They were still kickin' ass in '98 when everyone left.
2005-01-18 01:04:40 AM  
Their schedule the last 7 games:

Wed 5 at New Orleans
Fri 7 Utah
Sat 8 Boston
Mon 10 Golden State
Wed 12 Philadelphia
Sat 15 New York
Mon 17 at New York

Not exactly the cream of the crop. But, better than nothing I guess.

Wu Deng Clan and Noc are really steppin up. They will also get even better when AD comes back. It's too bad they got rid of the JYD.

/gotta love Red and Dore
2005-01-18 01:21:29 AM  
The only reason the Suns are losing is because Nash is hurt.

/he is the future
2005-01-18 01:24:50 AM  
Don't worry, Chicago. Even if the Bulls suck, at least you still have the Cubs ...

...Bears ...

...Blackhawks ...

...White Sox ...

...Belushis ...

...World's tallest building ...

... the Field Museum of Natural History!!!!! Isn't that cool?

I know I need to switch to a different brand of crack, but gawd I am sick of ESPN kissing Michael Jordan's ass.

Okay so they made one quick reference to him in the article, but every time he stepped on a basketball court to play a pickup game or practice with others, ESPN would have these headlines teasing another Michael Jordan comeback.

Someone in baseball could be on the verge of breaking DiMaggio'shiat streak and ESPN would first run something about Michael Jordan contemplating playing again while taking a dump at a Morton's.

The guy has been a hack when it comes to management in the NBA, yet ESPN treats it like he's some patron saint. Yeah, the guy was good on the court, but he's a failure at operating an NBA franchise. His ability to shoot a three-ball over Craig Ehlo does not translate into ability to run a franchise.

MJ this...MJ that...ESPN and Ahmad Rashad should have just get it over with and publicly kiss his ass on live TV.

/end rant
//where's the Tylenol?
2005-01-18 01:36:51 AM  
uh less02, i guess you are too young to actually see MJ dominate the game....not the office.
2005-01-18 01:38:53 AM  
Son of That Guy - I'm sorry, but your mother and I spent all that money we promised you'd get when we die. Our bad.

Back on topic, the Bulls are still owned by Reinsdorf, right? Then they'll continue to suck.

/White Sox fan
//grew up in Chicago suburbs, now in Portland (speaking of craptacular basketball teams)

Krause is no longer the GM there, is he? If so, they may have a shot at keeping their young talent around this time (Brand, Miller, Artest, etc.). Chicago has some great sports fans, so it would be nice to see *one* of their teams in a playoff setting.

Oh well, at least they can cheer for Donovan McNabb when he makes it to the Super Bowl this year, right?

2005-01-18 01:51:17 AM  
We still are the nation's murder capital.

/come talk trash over here
2005-01-18 01:53:59 AM

Go Wolves.

Be nice, Riensdorf had minor heart surgery today.

/insert "Riensdorf had a heart?" joke here.
//insert "well maybe there will be a new owner" joke here.
2005-01-18 02:02:38 AM  
i've watched every bulls game this season with the exception of one; and been to two. these kids are going to the playoffs.
i will be using "Wu Deng Clan" in my next conversation with at least 5 of my friends.

2005-01-18 02:16:27 AM  
monkeyknuts Where exactly are the Golden State Warriors? That is something that has always bothered me whenever I see them on ESPN or something, but then I forget a few seconds later.
2005-01-18 02:31:42 AM  
I believe the Warriors play out of Oakland, if I'm not mistaken.
2005-01-18 02:48:35 AM  
No, Jerry Krause FINALLY retired due to health reasons that basically amounted to him being a disgustingly obese person. Enter John Paxson, the early-90s version of Steve Kerr who, like Kerr did in '97, sunk a championship-winning shot. Paxson did it in 1993 with a three-ball having 3.9 left against the supposed "Team of Destiny" that year, the Suns; Kerr shot a jumper at the free-throw line in '97. I am a FAN, baby.

Under Pax, they've immediately turned into a near (and soon to be) .500 team. Not something that ordinarily makes people ooh and aah, but considering from where the Bulls have come...it's amazing. Like The Sports Guy, Bill Simmons, wrote in his 33 things I love about the NBA column underneath no. 16 - the resurgence of the Bulls: "You mean we should take proven college players over teenage projects who only do well in one-on-one games? Do I understand this correctly?" Paraphrased, of course, but eh.

John Paxson for Executive of the Year!


2005-01-18 02:51:03 AM  
Oh yeah, to the above FARKer who called Michael Jordan "good" on the court:


You score Understatement of the Millennium (Thus Far).

Idiot. And the shot over Ehlo was a jumper at the charity stripe. Although you may be thinking about something else, Craig Ehlo was Jordan's 80s biatch and it was PAINFUL at times, much like it became against Jordan's 90s biatch, Patrick Ewing.


2005-01-18 02:51:07 AM  
Yeah, the Warriors play in Oakland. Chris Cohan should be beaten for what he's done to the team, btw.
2005-01-18 02:56:37 AM  
I'll take Dirk vs. the entire Bulls team, thanks.
2005-01-18 03:11:33 AM  
fantasy basketball has changed my life. now whenever i am watching any game where i have a player involved i find myself screaming at the TV as though they can hear me (don't miss this free throw Zydrunas... don't miss... don't... ZYDRUNAS YOU'RE THE MAAAAANNNN!!!!! WOOOOO! ILGAUKAS UP IN THIS biatch!!!!!). on the other hand if i'm gonna be crazy anyways (read: game with the pistons) it just makes Ben Wallace destroying shots even better.
speaking of which, the pistons are 10 of their last 12 i think (could be even better). i'm really pleased to see my favorite team play so well and especially put the hurt on the suns earlier today (or yesterday depending on how you look at it).

/they still lost to the bulls
// and atlanta
/// i mean seriously... they dominated the suns but couldn't beat atlanta?
2005-01-18 03:18:42 AM  
It's basketball season?
2005-01-18 03:29:10 AM  
I think in order to be more accurate, one would need to say that *every* opposing player was at one time or another Jordan's biatch. He was so dominant that I have no choice but to remain highly skeptical when people say LeBron James will be the greatest NBA player who has ever lived. He's exceptionally talented, but he has some big shoes to fill.
2005-01-18 03:42:05 AM  
Go Lakers!!!

/hope Luke Walton is ok...
2005-01-18 03:54:46 AM  
LeBron's got miles to go until he sleeps as Jordan's successor, thanks. And point taken on everybody being Jordan's biatch, but...you have to be a Bulls fan to know how Craig Ehlo became the stand-in for everyone against Jordan in the 80s, and how Ewing's frustrations with never being able to beat him defined other players in the 90s.
