We look at which guys on the Bulls had tough looks, which had easy ones, and how difficult the team's shots were as a whole. The problem with evaulating an NBA player's shooting ability is that it is very closely tied with the quality of looks that a guy gets from his team's offensive system. This is the argument that Seth Partnow makes over at Nylon Calculus when talking about ranking Draymond Green (ICYMI, Ricky O'Donnell noted where Bulls players sit on SI's top 100…

    The Bulls have been great in close games for the past five years. What is behind their success, and can they maintain it under new coach Fred Hoiberg? It takes a lot of little things to win close games in the NBA. Part of the formula is smart coaching decisions, another part is players who can perform in the clutch, and it doesn't hurt to have random chance on your side as well. For the past 5 years, the Chicago Bulls have been lucky to possess all of the above. The team has been great in close games, and here's why: The Right Coaching Tom Thibodeau's regular season record in games decided by…

Possibly the Bulls could finally do some trading to potentially get Rudy Gay from the Sacramento Kings. To match up the contract of Rudy Gay, the Bulls could trade Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott. That’s not saying the Kings or the Bulls would agree to the trade, that’s just a trade that makes the contracts match up.

  • LeBron James Is The Social Activist That Michael Jordan Never Was Or Wanted To Be

    LeBron James can’t touch Michael Jordan as a player. It doesn’t matter how his career unfolds from this point forward. There are too many marks on The King’s career resumé for him to ever measure up to His Airness in minds of the masses. James might very well be better at basketball than Jordan, and perhaps the former will even match the latter’s six Larry O’Brien Trophies some day, too. But James has already lost in the NBA Finals on four separate occasions. His decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat disenchanted a sizable portion of…

    The Cubs will be without rookie Kyle Schwarber for three to five days while he is treated for a mild right rib strain he sustained prior to Wednesday's game, the team announced. Recently acquired outfielder Austin Jackson took his spot in the order Friday against the D-backs as Chris Coghlan filled the void in left field.

    There will be no words of wisdom from Cubs manager Joe Maddon for Jake Arrieta before he takes the mound to face the D-backs on Saturday afternoon at Wrigley Field. Arrieta, who threw a no-hitter against the Dodgers in his last start, will square off against Arizona left-hander Robbie Ray.

    A pair of rookies are adding pop to a Los Angeles Dodgers lineup that has been all over San Diego pitching this week. Corey Seager and Scott Schebler have fit into a suddenly hot Los Angeles offense through the first two games of a four-game series against the Padres, which continues Saturday night at Petco Park. The Dodgers (76-58) combined for 19 hits and 15 runs in the opening two games compared to the 27 hits and nine runs they totaled in their previous four.

    That was fun. LOTS of fun. If I could have written a script for the type of game the Cubs needed after the tough losses to the Reds, Friday's 14-5 win over the Diamondbacks would have been exactly, precisely what I would have proposed. (Well, maybe without the five Arizona runs, but you get what I mean.) The Cubs walked. The Cubs hit. The Cubs took advantage of errors as the D'backs played a poor game in just about every aspect of baseball. Four walks, a pop-fly single by Chris Coghlan and a sacrifice fly in the first inning off former Cubs prospect Zack Godley produced three runs. They added…

    Currently I’m reading Aziz Ansari’s book “Modern Romance,” and it’s a frighteningly real, fascinating and frustrating look at how romance and dating has changed since our parents were “courting.” But before I started that, an article on Mashable caught my eye about the CEO of Tinder getting pissed about an article in Vanity Fair (Tinder and the Dawn of the Dating Apocalypse) where the brand was mentioned, and subsequently went on a tirade on Twitter blasting the magazine and article. Naturally, this only solidified that I would read that article.

And when I started working professionally, and did so for a long time, I got used to finally treating myself to nicer things. Or just treating myself in general and not feeling guilty about it. That’s the thing about being told regularly that you don’t deserve nice stuff, you feel guilty buying it. But eventually I got a little more lenient about that. I still lived on a budget and put money in savings,…

    After itself being acquired by Verizon earlier this year, AOL made a move today to beef up its mobile presence (we know how important mobile will be, right kids?) with a purchase of ad network Millennial Media. Millennial — once thought by investors to be worth $1.87 billion — has had a tough go in mobile ever since marketers started taking Facebook ads seriously. The company’s stock closed at $1.74 today, after opening at $23.50 in 2012. For them, selling to AOL will hopefully put the brakes on the company’s slow decline, while also providing the network some valuable ad…

    With O.A.R.’s Back to Rockville Tour coming to Ravinia Fest this weekend, we caught up with Benj Gershman to discuss The Rockville LP, Chicago memories, and almost 20 years of O.A.R. We caught a few laughs along the way too. Hey Benj, how’s it going today? I’m great! I’m on tour with the band in Michigan. We’re playing at a beautiful spot called Meijer Gardens, and it’s a great day here. Awesome! Thanks for taking the time to meet with us. Let’s kick things off by telling us a little bit about yourself and what you do. No problem, we love Chicago. We’ve been playing shows…

Honestly, we don’t know, so we’ll let Max do the talking for us: “This is timelapse footage that was shot on the evening of the The Great Chicago Fire Festival put on by the Redmoon Theater along the Chicago River on 10-4-14.

Honestly, there are so many activities that we can’t even list them all. Still, here are our top 6 reasons to attend the Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival: 1) Umm… Shopping Like, duh.

    Baseball season is in full swing, and it’s a good year for Cubs fans. Still, the iconic Wrigley Field has more to offer than bats, baseballs and cheering fans (though those things are great as well). Here are 8 Reasons to Visit Wrigley Field: 1) The Cubs If you bleed Cubbie blue, but have yet to make it to a game, GET TO WRIGLEY FIELD!
