(a.k.a: stretching for Bulls updates to the point where I go to ex-Bulls)
Holy smokes. A dutiful blogger like me likes to go through his RSS feed a couple times a day. You could say that a truly dutiful blogger wouldn't use RSS at all and just use twitter, but if that's you: screw off. Anyway, in this lockout hell, I can now go a day or more without checking, and with little fear of it building up too much. I just went through 4 days worth...and there wasn't much out there. To the point where I'm putting in this introductory paragraph for no reason.
To the stuff!
- This is old but I don't think I ever posted it here: A talk with CJ Watson. The usual lockout fare of talking to teammates, not being able to talk to coaches, possibility of playing overseas, and so on.
- Kyle Korver is gearing up for his annual charity dodgeball game.
- Zach Lowe at SI is doing the smart thing: not waiting for news, but making it up by way of ranking things. That usually works, and he's usually good so it really works. This entry in his top-100 players in the league features 3 Bulls: Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, and Joakim Noah. It's way more than merely a statistical ranking and worth checking out. Similarly, there was a FanPost last week that had good Deng discussion, and Bulls Confidential recently tackled the concept of Boozer's expected productivity.
- Maybe some former Bulls? Would that interest you? No, not dynasty-era, go post a Michael Jordan mix for the 15th time in the fanshots if that's your bag. I'm talking more the likes of Ben Gordon, who won't be joining Deng on Team Great Britain this summer. Or Tyson Chandler, who in a Q&A with TrueHoop reflected on his BabyBull-mate Eddy Curry. Or Tyrus Thomas, wwho answers some fans questions with exciting results (via) if you believe him (looking inward for improvement? a post game?). That's right, in to put this moronic internet debate terms: BaB era > Dynasty era.
