Your friendly Bulls Blogger of Blogabull.com stops by to discuss the major story lines heading into to the regular season and what the preseason has taught us, if anything. Listen to find out our expectations for Rose, Pau, Jimmy and more before the Bulls' begin their 2014/15 campaign Wednesday night.
Jay Patt of BlogABull&SB Nation joins Nillz to bask in the glory of Derrick Rose's performance vs. the Cavs, and whether any aspects of the preseason contest will translate into a playoff match-up. We also discuss Jimmy Butler's sprained thumb and preseason trends we like or hate.
After nearly a month long hiatus, the Bulls Show is back with Nillz catching up with Jay Patt of Blogabull.com. We reflect on the FIBA World Cup, discuss media day anecdotes/optimism, and analyze Jimmy Butler's value.
Ricky&Nillz try to explain why we shouldn't stress over Derrick Rose's struggles with Team USA and then define reasonable expectations for the former MVP. After basically dismissing Rose's sub-par play, we revere (perhaps hypocritically) Pau Gasol's FIBA showing and how it should translate for the Bulls.
After 5 minutes of talking Beyonce&Jackie Robinson West, Nillz&Ricky rein it in to discuss Rose's soreness and performance last week as a member of Team USA. We also discuss the final roster set to compete for the FIBA World Cup in Spain and run a"Bulls vs. Cavs"Fastbreak now that the Kevin Love trade is official.
Ricky O'Donnell is back to share his experiences over the weekend at Team USA training camp, the World Basketball Festival, and the United Center for Derrick Rose's return. Listen to him and Nillz discuss everything from Coach K's apparent beef with the SB Nation writer to a potential friendship with Jahlil Okafor to the stage presence of Doug E. Fresh. We also run a Bulls forecast edition of the"Fast Break."
We celebrate the milestone with a roundtable discussion featuring Doug Thonus of the Bulls Beat and BullsConfidential.com. We react to the reported Cavs trade for Kevin Love and how the Bulls now match-up with the new Eastern Conference favorites. The 2nd part of the show is a retrospective"fast break"talking about our favorite moments in the podcast's 100 episode history.
Fresh from the Vegas black jack table, ESPN's Nick Friedell joins Nillz to discuss the fallout from Paul George's devastating injury and the implications on Derrick Rose. Listen to Nick also talk about Rose's return to playing at an elite level and whether (of course) the offseason acquisitions are enough to put the Bulls'"over the top."
