Vogel: "If we win tonight we'll win the series."

Vogel: "If we win tonight we'll win the series."

[Your Game Five HYPE. Pretty empty gesture from Vogel (similarly, Darren Collison doesn't feel like they're down 3-1). For one, they're not going to win tonight so nobody will care what he said. And if they did win, nobody will care what he said as much as them actually winning the game. But I appreciate creating...something...all the same. Latest on Rose is that he didn't participate in practice, but will play. Gametime at 7 -ed.] Mike Wells (Via Twitter)

If anyone needs a reminder on why we hate Rondo, just go to the 1:25 mark on this video.

Bulls by the Horns: Eat it Ziller!

(Pretty awesome rebuttal to the people that are killing Rose right now. I felt like clapping at the end. Shout out to yfbb for linking to this on Twitter.)

"And give New Orleans and New Jersey credit as well. The same year he had three opportunities, and the moron took the one that paid the least with the least amount of years guaranteed. But he got the best player so guess what? It's all good. Who would have known that they would be a high-50-win team. When you consider all the injuries they've had. I give the lion's share of the credit to Rose and Tom in conjunction."

Jeff Van Gundy on Thibs Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I didn't know we got outbid by two small market franchises. Kinda embarrassing. Extension after the season?

Simmons' podcast with Steve Kerr

Steve Kerr was on Simmons' podcast, and I thought it was a really good listen. They go over a bunch of topics, and around the 40 minute mark start talking about how awesome Rose is. Really good stuff. Gotta give Simmons credit cause you can tell that he really does love basketball, he's not just a total Celtics homer.

Pretty much the best thing ever.

But the most telling sign may have been the postgame news conference. Even after an epic defensive performance in the second half, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau showed no signs of happiness. "You want to play 48 minutes," Thibodeau said. "I liked our defense in the second half. I didn't like the last 1:16." The Bulls reserves gave up 3 easy baskets in the final minute; otherwise, Atlanta managed just 20 points in the first 23 minutes of the second half. Mike McGraw Thibs is insane. Discuss. [Bumping this (I can do so with FanShots now!) to highlight this article from KC about Thibs demands (and I don't mean that in a bad way). -ed.]

Noah hanging out with Rodman

Sweet, what's next, Derrick Rose playing blackjack with MJ?

Stacey King's Calls Visualized

I was just lurking over at Real GM, when I came across this thread. Gotta hand it to those guys, this is some pretty hilarious shit.

You hear Dwight Howard as one of the next big free agents to escape in 2012, and then you hear that if the Magic sense that maybe they do a peremptory strike like the Jazz and move Howard. And where else can you get a center but, say, Chicago with the University of Florida’s Joakim Noah? Howard to the Bulls? Never happen, I assume. It’s always why Michael Jordan didn’t want to play with a player like that. Derrick Rose’s strength is driving to the basket. Howard lives at the rim and doesn’t play pick-and-roll. It’s one reason the Magic have difficultly. Of course, Howard is better than Noah, but you need pieces that fit together, and I’d be surprised if the Bulls ever wanted to put a player like Howard with Rose.

Sam Smith Sorry, I know this isn't exactly fanshot worthy, but this may have been the dumbest basketball related thing I've ever read. I feel it needs some sort of platform.

Juwan Howard (Lebron's teammate) picks Rose for MVP

I know it's not trade talk, but it's still pretty cool

‘‘I can truly say that Derrick Rose is not only the best teammate I’ve ever played with — I believe...

‘‘I can truly say that Derrick Rose is not only the best teammate I’ve ever played with — I believe he is the best I will ever have,’’ Scalabrine said.

Sun TImes I know we see a lot of these quotes lately, but I thought this one was pretty interesting considering Scalabrine just got here, and he's played with some pretty great players in his career: KG, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, E.T., Jason Kidd, Vince Carter, and I'm sure there are others...

D Rose selected for Skills Challenge

He'll be competing against Westbrook, Wall, Steph Curry and CP3. Now that he's in the big boy game, stuff like this isn't as interesting, but this should be kinda fun.

Did the Bulls make the wrong decision on T-Mac?

I'm watching a little Pistons-Blazers at the moment (don't ask me why), and it made me think about a pretty big topic of discussion around here from earlier this year: T Mac.  He's playing pretty...

If he does leave, Howard has his eyes on two teams -- the Lakers and Knicks -- as the big-market destinations where he'll chase down his championships and marketing opportunities if things don't work out in the Sunshine State. The Nets, who are supposed to be in Brooklyn by then, also are in the mix, the person said.

Simmons' podcast and other things

I was flipping through some random Bulls and NBA articles and things (Hi Vinny), and I thought a few were fanshot worthy.  But rather than risk the scorn of yfbb by bunching them together, and/or...

Stacey King is on Twitter

Everyone's favorite memo giver is now on Twitter. It's been verified by the Bulls and the Swirsk, among others, so it's definitely him.

More voting!!!

This time it's for the Skills challenge. Fans have to vote on 4 players to go up against Chris Paul (wtf?) on All Star Weekend. Obviously D Rose is one of them, hence the fanshot. Personally, I'd almost rather see him not in it, but it's hard not to vote for the guy. Other contestants include: Baron Davis, Derek Fisher, John Wall, Russell Westbrook, Tony Parker, Tyreke Evans and Stephen Curry. No Rondo. You don't want to scare the kids :)

Simmons' Chat (Bulls questions)

Bill Simmons had a chat today.  When he wasn't completely discounting the Bears-Packers as a real rivalry (ugh), he was answering a lot of basketball questions.  Including several about the Bulls....

The Bulls continue to conduct exploratory talks to upgrade at shooting guard, however nothing is imminent. They have scouted Rockets guard Courtney Lee, a favorite of the coaching staff.

KC Johnson KC also mentions that it's unlikely Boozer plays tomorrow. (I opted to delete my worthless editorializing rather than make a fanpost, if that's ok)

Rajon Rondo's biggest assist of the year

It's been discussed on here quite a bit, but Sham points out a specific instance where that little creep gets some pretty big help from the hometown scorekeepers. I wonder how often stuff like this happens with him...

Carlos Boozer will not make the trip with the Bulls to Memphis for Monday's Martin Luther King game because of his sprained ankle

Sam Smith (Via Twitter) Well, that's not good. Hopefully he doesn't miss more than that.

Bulls-Heat Postgame/Sunday Around the League/Go Bears! thread

    Usually yfbb doesn't post much on weekends, so I thought it might be helpful to throw up a new thread, rather than continuing the conversation in that stuffy game thread.  Maybe this can...

In depth look at Rose what really makes an MVP

I was just checking out Real GM and I came across this thread. One of the members made a really interesting (imo) breakdown of how Rose stacks up against past MVP's. It doesn't paint a very pretty picture for his chances. Although most of us probably knew that already. But he's still having a great year, and this was really cool to take a look at.

"Derrick Rose is an outstanding basketball player," Pistons head coach John Kuester said. "I enjoy...

"Derrick Rose is an outstanding basketball player," Pistons head coach John Kuester said. "I enjoy everything about him. Not only is he gifted as a player both offensively and defensively, but he has a passion for the game. His body language for the entire game was the same whether they were ahead or behind. That is the mark of a great one."

ESPN Chicago Feel free to delete if this is seen as just another quote about Rose's greatness. But I really liked this one, from John Kuester.

Ric Bucher defends Rose's honor... again.

Just a link to the NBA Today podcast from today (12/27), but there was a lot of Bulls talk. Including mention of a rumored trade for Eric Gordon (wtf?), and Ric Bucher putting his Rose love on full display once again. The final 3-4 minutes are basically Bucher just counting the ways that Rose is awesome. Pretty good if you haven't heard it. Keep fighting the good fight, Ric!

Orlando acquires JRich, Hedo, and Arenas.

[Editing this fanshot to encompass all the Orlando dealing, with a nod to SBN bro-site Orlando Pinstriped Post (twitter) for being first on this and working it throughout. Chris Broussard has the full deal with Phoenix: hx sends Hedo/J Rich/Earl Clark to Orlando for Vince/Gortat/Pietrus, 2011 first round pick and cash considerations. Arenas-for-Rashard Lewis, also. -ed.
