Thibs finally had his full lineup at his disposal Monday night vs. the Pistons, and Nillz&Ricky highlight who and what looked good in the Bulls' victory. A vintage performance by D.

It isnâ€™t officially Bulls basketball without a few injuries and financial decisions.

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 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.
