  • The Chicago Bulls have a helluva weekend to round out their current road trip. Tonight sees them in Orlando and on Sunday they head on down to Miami. The prior is fresh off a win against the latter, hopefully meaning the prior is a bit tired and the latter’s confidence is lacking. Regardless of the prior and latter, these are two important games for the Bulls for two reasons. First, they are in the thick of a battle to get the one-seed in the East. Second, the Bulls are only a game over .500 on the road. As good as they are at home, the Bulls are going to have to win on the road in order to have success in the playoffs. This is a great opportunity to do just that against two of the East’s top four teams.
  • New signing Rasual Butler is available for tonight’s game against the Magic.
  • Here is a monster story on Derrick Rose in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated. In it he reveals the text he sent to LeBron during the recruiting campaign this summer. SPOILER ALERT: It was, “OMG! I was soooooooo drunk last nite 🙂 LOL!!!!!! I cant beleve u went home wit that creepy dude ;)” The quote of the article comes from (who else) Joakim Noah. Regarding Rose’s take on the LeBron decision, “That showed you what kind of guy he is. If you want to come here and be part of this, that’s cool. If not, we’re going to try to kick your ass.”
  • Derrick Rose on his poor shooting as of late, “”Keep shooting, that’s the only way I see it. Me not shooting, that plays in their hands, so as long as I keep taking those shots, they’ve got to fall one day.” [Gulp] Um, alright.
  • In today’s post, Bulls official blog writer (la ti da!) Sam Smith wrote, “And the Bulls remain on pace for some 55 wins, well above the projection of everyone.” Let the record show that DJ HatesYou predicted way back in July that the Bulls would win 56 games. That man is good. Dalton good. I am just surprised that Smith did not remember reading the post.

    "I used to predict guys like you in prison."
