Ricky O'Donnell of BlogaBull.com returns to the show to discuss the hottest team in the league on the heels of dismantling the New York Knicks. Naturally, we also discuss Melo's impending free agency, Jimmer's potential impact on the Bulls, and Joakim's award-worthy season.
We reflect on the Bulls' loss to the Heat and what was going right before their 5 game win streak ended Sunday afternoon. We also examine the trade deadline and how the buyout market may impact the Bulls.
We react to the recent reports speculating Carmelo Anthony to the Bulls, but before diving into the polarizing all-star, we break down the last two games and try to figure out what's wrong with Jimmy Butler.
We discuss how the Bulls continue to thrive led by Joakim Noah and DJ Augustin. Could the Bulls actually be better without Luol Deng? Is Derrick Rose simply a product of Thibs' system? Despite potential eye rolls, we also dive into the possibility of Derrick Rose returning this spring and whether poor minutes management is a fire-able offense.
We analyze the streaking Bulls, winners of 5 straight and sitting in 5th place of the Leastern Conference. We also dissect Joakim Noahâ€™s recent comments against tanking and predict where the Bulls go from here now that the dust from the Luol Deng trade has settled.

The Bullsâ€™trade of Luol Deng is reason enough to bring you our first pod of the new year. Listen as Mitch, Nillz, and E express their disappointment (or excitement?) about Dengâ€™s departure. Are friends ready to weather managementâ€™s rebuilding effort?
Nillz is back, still not emotionally recovered from the devastating loss of Derrick Rose. He joins Mitch to identify and discuss the current trends of this godforsaken season. Listen in to hear the root and silver linings of the Bulls' latest struggles. We also take a look around the league in another thrilling segment of"The Fastbreak."
The Bulls made it four in a row on Saturday and we invited Jason Patt (@Bulls_Jay) of Blog-a-Bull and SB Nation to break it down. We talked Derrick's three point barrage against Indy, Thibs' crazy rotations, and a ton more. We even mourned our beloved Illini's worst week ever.
