Windy City Sports Report – 1/21/13


“The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That’s real glory.” -Vince Lombardi

Hello sports fans, Carlos here with your Windy City Sports Report. In this edition, the Bulls keep rolling; the Bears get their man; we finally have hockey.

The return of Derrick Rose is near, but the Bulls are too busy winning games to be concerned about that. They had four games this week, trying to gain on the Central-leading Indiana Pacers. They played the overtime game this week, having three of them in a row. Read the rest of this entry »

Windy City Sports Report – 10/22/12


Hello sports fans, Carlos here again with your Windy City Sports Report. In this issue, how are the Bulls looking in preseason? Are the Bears sleeping in the den? Is the ice melted for the Blackhawks?

On Tuesday, the Bulls were at home to face the Milwaukee Bucks. Nate Robinson started for Kirk Hinrich, who did not play due to a sore thumb, and he played flawless basketball. He led the Bulls with 24 points and 13 assists, and more importantly, zero turnovers. Rip Hamilton pitched in 23 points and 3 steals in a 100-94 victory.

Bulls Show they are Road Warriors


by Carlos Nazario

Last Sunday, the Chicago Bulls finished up a grueling nine games in fourteen days road trip, the longest they will have this season. They lost to the Boston Celtics, but finished the trip 6-3.

It was pretty amazing they had such a good trip, considering they were without the services of Rip Hamilton for all but the opener against the Miami Heat, and were without the services of Derrick Rose for the last two games.

In the middle of that trip, the Bulls did something that has never been done in the history of the NBA-they won four consecutive games on the road by 20 points or more. They beat Milwaukee (113-90), New Jersey (108-87), New Orleans (90-67), and Charlotte (95-64) on their way to history.

No Bull: This is One Good TEAM


by Carlos Nazario

The key to the Bulls D is everyone playing together and not deviating from that.

The NBA season is about a quarter done, and we are finding out that this Chicago Bulls is a great TEAM. No, the Bulls do not have the Big 3 like the Miami Heat or Boston Celtics. They do not have an iconic superstar (yet) like the Los Angeles Lakers. There is just no sizzle or flash to the Bulls.

The Bulls own the best record in the NBA at 15-3. No Bull is in the top 10 in any category except assists (Derrick Rose-4th). All they do, to steal the words of DJ Khaled, is win, win, win.

What they do have is a singular focus on team success. Their coach, Tom Thibodeau (a man not many heard of until last season), has a philosophy of team everything, and the players have bought into it. Of course, it helps that the best player, Derrick Rose, is the first to buy it. It can be the most difficult thing to do but Rose puts it simply: “His job is to come up with the game plan, my job is to execute it.”

Thibodeau has the Bulls playing every minute of every game. Guard Ronnie Brewer acknowledges that the players want to use their instincts and gamble, but Thibodeau preaches against it. “It’s tough for us, because it’s all instinct. You want to go gambling and go get the ball. For the good of the team, you can’t really pick your spots, and you’ve just got to play the defense.”
