The Chicago Bulls clinched the number one seed and aim to take a shot at the best record in the NBA, but at what cost? They should do well in hte post-season awards, and I examine the various potential playoff matchups.

Bulls Beat #184 -
The Chicago Bulls appear to have locked up the #1 seed witha magic number of four and only six games to play. Now the only question is whether they can catch the Spurs and stay ahead of the Lakers for home court in the finals. However, they still have a couple of problems that might trip them up in the playoffs. Derrick Rose looks like your MVP, but can he hold off a late charge from Kobe Bryant. I also discuss why John Hollinger's argument for Dwight Howard really isn't all that sound.

Bulls Beat #183 -

Bulls Beat #178 -
I discuss everything Bulls with K.C. Johnson, from trade deadline action, the MVP vote, how the Bulls stack up against elite competition and just how good Derrick Rose is. Unfortunately, my mic stopped recording mid interview, so I had to re-record my parts to the interview, so excuse a little bit of occasional choppiness. K.C. gave some great answers though and really surprised me with a few of his views.

Bulls Beat #177 -
Derrick Rose proves he's the best point guard in the NBA by crushing his rivals in head to head match ups on the road. I also discuss the Bulls fight for seeding in the playoffs and how they can prove they're worthy of Jerry spending luxury tax dollars on improving the team.

After two well played losses, the Bulls pick up two ugly wins.

Bulls Beat #165 -

Bulls Beat #127 -
I return to the podcasting world after a 1 day retirement with sad personal news along with some discussion of the Bulls.

Bulls Beat #126 -

Bulls Beat #115 -
Okay, I've reverted to song for the second time to shock you out of your game seven hangovers. I give my closing thoughts on the players, the season, the coaches, and preview what's to come on the Bulls Beat in the coming months.

Bulls Beat #114 -
The Bulls gut out a triple overtime win against the Celtics to send the closest playoff series ever to a deciding game 7. Several Bulls weren't as happy as you'd think they would be while the refs did us no favors an the commissioner will probably pass on doing us one today as well.

Bulls Beat #113 -
The Bulls lost a heartbreaker, but they gained all the experience you could hope for in a playoff series to build hunger for next year. I take a look at game 5 and preview game 6 where the Bulls attempt to even the series. Also, the Bulldpodcsters T-Shirts are finally here, and on sale now through the website.

Bulls Beat #112 -
Doc Rivers is now the one with no timeouts at the end of the game as the Bulls shorten this to a best of three series with a game four win. Derrick Rose plays well, Brad Miller's a hot head, and a look at the critical game five in Boston on Tuesday

Bulls Beat #111 -
The closest a series can be after three games is two to one. The Bulls may find themselves on the wrong side of that two to one, but a single victory will fix everything. I discuss what the Bulls need to do to make that happen in game four.

Bulls Beat #110 -
Derrick Rose grabs superstardom by the horns and has launched himself into the national conversation with LeBron, Howard, Wade, and Bosh as rising stars of the East while Vinny Del Negro almost turns a win into a loss.

Bulls Beat #108 -
The Bulls clinch a playoff spot in unheralded fashion as Charlotte loses to Oklahoma City on the road. I go over the different tiebreakers, in confusing fashion, and try to figure out what seed we'll land on. I make cases for VDN and John Paxson as coach/GM, and discuss your emails this week.

Bulls Beat #104 -
The Bulls have given you a roller coaster ride over the past four games, and as the season winds down there are two things on the mind of Bulls fans. Will we make the playoffs and will Derrick Rose win rookie of the year honors.

Bulls Beat #103 -

Bulls Beat #102 -
Matt from stops by to discuss the latest Bulls news. He was the lucky attendy of the Derrick Rose bust-out-athon against Houston, so we discuss that, Rose's progression, Luol Deng's latest issues, VDN's coaching stint and so mcuh more.

Bulls Beat #101 -
The Bulls raise your hopes by destroying the Nuggets and then send them crashing back down with a loss to the Pacers. A quick look at our new players in their debut, and I defend Vinny Del Negro, sort of. Also, my hot topic of the day is how to keep Ben Gordon a Bull next summer without paying the luxury tax. It isn't pretty, but there are solutions. All your email questions answered as well.

Bulls Beat #100 -
It's the 100th episode of the Bulls beat, and it couldn't have come at a better time. The trading deadline has passed, and the Bulls are definitely the winners. Not Amare winners, but winners none the less. I break down all the trades with a special guest who hasn't appeared on the show in quite some time. We also discuss the Paxson press conference as well as rumors of his retirement, and the Chris Bosh rumors as well as destroying all your hope for Ben Gordon staying (and then reigniting it just for fun).

Bulls Beat #99 -
The Paxson retirement has blown over somewhat and seems to be blown out of proportion by Vescey and too quickly confirmed by Hanley. KC and Mike McGraw give a story of nothing major to report. The Amare trade rumors continue to descend on the city, and I give you my take on how likely a deal is to come to fruition. Also, Derrick Rose wins the skills contest, but the rookies are unable to top the sophomores in the rookie/sophomore challenge.

Bulls Beat #98 -
John Paxson is resigning as reported by Peter Vescey and confirmed by Brian Hanley. What effect will this have on the trade deadline and what is the real reason that Paxson is leaving the Bulls? Speculation abounds on these topics. Also the shocking news doesn't stop us from reporting the worst end game sequence I've seen in years, who's dumber VDN or Thabo Sefolosha? You decide. Plenty more Amare talk thrown in for fun, as all your emails are answered.

Bulls Beat #97 -
It's a great day to be a Bulls fan as we just saw one of the best games of the year as the Bulls have a thrilling come from behind victory against the Pistons. We saw Chicago honor one of it's legends in Johnny Red Kerr, and we still get to be excited about the prospects of adding Amare Stoudemire, he of the worst nickname in the NBA, to our team via trade. All of this as well as some discussion of other trade rumors on this edtion of the Bulls Beat.

Bulls Beat #96 -
It's Amare mania, and I'm going to break it down for you like no other. The positives and negatives to acquiring Amare. The steps that need to be taken before he'll be traded anywhere, and the individual things that have to happen before he could become a Bull. The cap consequences, and best offers that I believe the Bulls could make. I'm breaking it down as much as I can. Also, the Bulls lose to the Mavs in OT after Derrick Rose drives the lane 100 times without getting a foul call all night, and of course, all emails answered.

Bulls Beat #95 -
The bulls have won four of their last five and clinched a winning record on a big road trip for the first time since the Jordan era. Everyone is playing well, and Larry Hughes has been banished. Things really couldn't be going any sweeter until that is rumors that Amare and Bosh may be availble for trade offering up opportunities to get that elusive star big man. I discuss all of the latest news including my belated discussion of Reinsdorf's problems with the team and answer all your email questions on this edition of the Bulls Beat.

Bulls Beat #94 -
The Bulls have won two in a row and attempt to break the three game win streak barrier again this year. I leap on the opportunity to do a podcast before that third game in order to still have something nice to say about the team. Noah and Tyrus are showing improvement, Deng is the man again, and Derrick Rose is setting up dunks in two blowouts on the road. I also get into some trade discussion, some who do you blame the most, and answer all your email questions.

Bulls Beat #93 -
The Bulls are playing better ball, but it's not showing up in the record books as the losing streak rolls on after the first game of the road trip. I've got a little good news on Joakim Noah to boost my hopes that he's going to take basketball more seriously this off season, and I answer all your email questions relating to VDN's tenure, Gordon's odds of staying, as well as if we'll be able to trade Larry Hughes.

Bulls Beat #92 -
The Bulls are what we thought they were. Unfortunately, that's what we thought they were after the Oklahoma City loss and not the Cleveland and Toronto wins. Closing out games is the greatest issue this team faces right now. Also, Joakim Noah, he's not so bad as you think. Really. I'm the only one who believes this, but it's true. Some fun personal stories, and finally, I answer your voicemail questions (bad Doug, bad for taking so long).

Bulls Beat #91 -
Did I just take a Zoloft or did the Bulls beat the Cavs last night while shutting down LBJ? Okay, he was sick, they were missing guys, and the offense still struggled, but who cares? After a couple downer episodes, I finally get to give you some feel good Bulls talk focused around the return of Hinrich, Deng, and maybe I'm finally entering the acceptance stage of Ben Gordon's fate. All this and all of your email comments on this edition of the Bulls Beat.

Bulls Beat #90 -
After going 2-2 after four home games against four of the worst teams in the NBA, it's oficially time to panic about this season. It's really hard to imagine things being a whole lot worse than this. What happened to the team that was a game under .500 after playing the toughest schedule in the NBA? They played a bunch of creampuffs and lost. Grab your hard liquor, turn on the blues and listen to the Bulls Beat.

Bulls Beat #89 -
The Bulls are blown out by two good opponents, and then lose to one of the worst teams in the league. At home. The sky actually is falling, and the finger pointing and internal problems are obvious. VDN has lost the team and needs to go, and John Paxson may not be the right man to try and fix this mess. Wholesale changes are required at this point, and Paxson needs to prove he's not too attached to the players he drafted. My prediction of the 6th seed indeed looks pretty weak right now.

Bulls Beat #88 -
In this edition of the Bulls Beat I lightly cover the past three games, and spend a lot of time discussing the Bulls rotation as Hinrich appears to be possibly ahead of schedule in his recovery. Luol Deng and Drew Gooden should also be returning to the lineup soon, and a big time minute crunch seems inevitable. What do we do with this roster both short term and long term? This and other rambling thoughts in a somewhat disjointed edition of the Bulls Beat.

Bulls Beat #87 -
The Bulls were destroyed by three refs in Detroit on the onset of a tough six game stretch (5 on the road). The most surprising thing about the month of December may be the reimergence of Tyrus Thomas and the continued mediocre play of Loul Deng. A lot of discussion centered on those two players. Some discussion about our other front court options as well as all your email questions being answered.

Bulls Beat #86 -
The Bulls Beat is joined by Fred Pfeiffer of the Chicago Bullseye Podcast to discuss the latest on the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls get a big win over the Jazz, but will be without Drew Gooden until at least January. Tyrus has yet to suit up, and we get into the debate of what to do with Luol Deng and Ben Gordon as well.

Bulls Beat #85 -
The Bulls finish up their stretch of easy games the same place they entered it. One game under .500. Derrick Rose has looked mortal all of a sudden, but no reason to push the panic button on Rose yet. Tyrus and Joakim are starting to look promising, and the Bulls get to go to Boston to attempt to finally get to the breakeven point.

Bulls Beat #84 -
The Chicago Bulls have gone two and three since the last podcast with quick summations of the important notable points from those performances included. However, the real treat is a few tidbits I've gleaned from some sources regarding a bunch of your favorite Bulls players (okay not so much your favorites, since I didn't get anything special about rose), but plenty of info on our frontcourt and backcourt and recent happenings behind the scenes. Of course, all your email questions are answered as well on this edition of the Bulls Beat.

Bulls Beat #83 -
An Around the Horn style podcast hosted by Mark with special guests Brian Kush from Running with the Bulls, Nick and Adam from Bullscast, and Fred Pfeifer of the Chicago Bullseye along with myself debating hot topics about the Chicago Bulls.

Bulls Beat #82 -
The Bulls beat up on the Wizards, manage to almost blow the game at the end and continue their pattern of completely ignoring their youth. The season of development is completely off as the Bulls continue to throw out gimicky lineups in an attempt to get around the fact that their front court is worthless. Andres Nocioni redeems himself, at least a little bit while Drew Gooden does not.

Bulls Beat #81 -
The Bulls drop two games to mediocre team dimming the light at the end of the tunnel I've seen. Gooden and Nocioni are the primary culprits, but who do we really have to replace them? The Bulls have another six matchups on the easy part of the schedule and will need to win five of them to restore my faith in them.

Bulls Beat #80 -
The Bulls finish the circus trip with a 3-4 record and are 8-9 on the season entering a stretch of games which should allow them to surge quite a bit past the .500 mark into positive territory. Derrick Rose punctuates the whooping of the 76ers with two huge plays, and Larry Hughes manages to play reasonably well over a five game stretch. All your email questions are answered in this feel good edition of the Bulls Beat.

Bulls Beat #79 -
The Bulls stand at 7-8 overall, and they're 2-3 on the circus trip. All things considering an admirable start. Larry Hughes is contributing in a positive factor while Rose has been good enough to create a whole new rating system. Nocioni's not getting a pass from this show, and it seems like the Bulls have completely given up on the player development theory that was discussed so much in the off season. Plus, all your email questions have been answered as always.

Bulls Beat #78 -
The Bulls defeat the Warriors ending the doom and gloom of the Portland debacle claiming their first road win of the season as well as the first circus trip win this year. Larry Hughes shows up and plays well, and not only does he hit his shot, but he actually has solid shot selection. The Knicks trade Randolph and Crawford to free up cap space for 2010 creating a whole bunch of renewed 2010 discussion, and of course, all your email questions are answered.

Bulls Beat #77 -
The circus trip has not started pretty, and most Bulls fans are ready to jump ship. What does that mean? What practical moves can really be made at this point? Where are you going to go with this roster, and is Paxson going to be on the way out? I wade through the different issues effecting our team and try to figure out how management could help things move forward as well as answering all of your email questions.

Bulls Beat #76 -
The Bulls beat Dallas and Indy to reach 5-5 inspiring hope for a season to offer more than another lottery performance. Rose is a superstar, as if you didn't know it already. Ben Gordon denies Rose the ball. Larry Hughes sends Thabo Sefolosha to the bench, and our front court still stinks. All your long built up email questions are finally answered as well.

Bulls Beat #75 -
The first edition of Bulls Beat Live was released, and boy did I learn some lessons from trying to do this show. Topics covered a wide range of chat questions as well as Derrick Rose comments from my sole caller Brendan. I also got intothe Bulls past couple of games as well as a quick preview of what the next couple of games look like for the franchise.

Bulls Beat #74 -
The Bulls destroy the Suns and the offense returns to the form it displayed vs Milwaukee, but Luol Deng and Ben Gordon drop some questionable comments on the Chicago media prior to the game.

Also the information on Bulls Beat Live is re-iterated, be there, or be square!

Bulls Beat #73 -
In this episode I give you a Ben Wallace / Scott Skiles story that you won't wan to miss as well as a great story about Nocioni from our last victory against the Grizzlies.

Bulls Beat #71 -
The Chicago Bulls open the season with a win in which everyone looks good and the offense looks a whole lot more impressive in regular season than in preseason. Al Harrington is once again connected to the Bulls in trade rumors, do we send Hinrich to get him and make a play at 2010 cap space? Even when he's not playing, Larry Hughes somehow deserves a rant, and all of your email questions of the past week and a half are finally answered.

Bulls Beat #70 -
The Chicago Bulls offensive play book may still be toned down, but Mark Fish joins me to break down what we've so far in how the offense works and what plays are run. See how our floor spacing is different, what kinds of shots are generated, and find out why Luol Deng isn't off to a great start in this system. We also give a quick overview of all the Bulls players and what they look like so far in the offense and how likely they are to adapt and discuss everyone's guilty pleasure, Larry Hughes' injury.

The final Gordon post mortem including a quick discussion of all the final rumors about other offers, pulled offers, reduced offers, and all that fun stuff. A mystery quote about Derrick Rose, the latest comments about Joakim Noah, and some comments from VDN about the backcourt log jam. It's more fun than a poke in the eye, and Joakim and I can bost attest to that.

Bulls Beat #65 -
It's official, Ben Gordon has accepted the qualifying offer becoming the first above average player to do so in the league. How will this effect the Bulls this year, next year, and in the future? Will Gordon now be traded, and how much playing time will he get for the Bulls? I take a look at all the possibilities going forward.

Bulls Beat #64 -
Ben Gordon is reportedly taking the qualifying offer shaking up our long term future and creating interesting decisions on managing trades and minutes this off season. Also, some thoughts on Derrick Rose as I defend myself against the onslaught of negative feedback for daring to say something bad about him last episode.

Ben Gordon has played his last game as a bull. Or has he? He says a sign and trade is imminent and that he won't take the qualifying offer under any circumstances. Is there really a trade? How does this effect the Bulls? How does it effect Gordon. In minor news, Luol Deng can't get insurance to play for GB, and I spend a little bit more time discussing podcasts that I listen to.

Bulls Beat #57 -
The Bulls went all in with their under the luxury tax dollars, but Ben Gordon hasn't been impressed. We get some confirmation on my report last week that no one else is interested in paying him either. I also take a close look at Gordon's outlook next year if he does take the qualifying offer and weigh in on what I think will happen with Gordon this summer. On top of that, I actually get to answer your email questions as well ranging from my podcast tastes to 2010 dreams.
