Go Bulls?

Apparently the Chicago Bulls aren’t terrible again. Here’s what’s odd about it to me:– I thought they were still terrible, so… good.- I guess the Mavericks are really good, and have been for like a long time?- I cannot name a single freaking person on the team, except for coach Scott Skiles, who you could have tricked me into thinking was still actually playing for the Orlando Magic.I followed the NBA pretty closely when I was a kid and early teen, but at some point I stopped enjoying it and moved on. I think it was because my favorite teams were the Golden State Warriors and the Minnesota Timberwolves… and they never won. Sam Mitchell, he was on the Timberwolves, he ended up on the Bulls at some point right? What’s Christian Laettner up to?I own a Christian Laettner jersey.

    Dan, yes they are playing pretty well. It’s obvious that your interests have changed over the years. This is not the Blackhawks that we’re talking about. The Bulls get the front page of the sports section every day. How could you not have heard of Ben and Ben, Luol, Kirk and Andres?

    Wait, one of the Bens is Ben Wallace right? From the Pistons? He lost his afro right? That was what I used to like about him.

    My knowledge of the NHL is also locked in a 1993 snapshot. Jeremy Roenick and That One Famous Goalie are all I remember about them.

    Christian Laettner is buying up pro sports teams (Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA, DC United in Major League Soccer) with a couple of partners.

    The Bulls haven’t been terrible for three years now, although the last two still were nothing to write home about, and were generally viewed with skepticism by believers in a superstar-driven NBA.
