    Check Out LeBron James’ Oscar-Worthy Flop (Video)

    The Stat Line of the Night wasn’t the only award LeBron James received for his performance last night during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.  He also earned an Oscar for best dramatic performance after drawing a foul on the Bulls’ Derrick Rose following this phantom face-poke. This was just one of the many […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/7/11 — Derrick Rose

    While the Chicago Bulls couldn’t officially clinch top spot in the Eastern Conference, they could make it as close as possible to a sure thing with a win over the Boston Celtics at the United Center last night.  No only would they get that win, but they would do so in a rather impressive fashion, […]

    Derrick Rose Delivers A Sweet Through-The-Legs Dime (Video)

    Derrick Rose continues to assert himself as one of the best point guards in the game and a strong candidate for this season’s Most Valuable Player award.  Some of that can be attributed to his 24.8 point-per-game average.  Some to his impressive 8.1 assists per game.  Rose was right around that mark last night when […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/17/11 — Derrick Rose

    In a battle between two of the NBA’s best teams, it was a career-best performance from the NBA’s best point guard that would prove to be the difference.  The San Antonio Spurs have three great guards of their own in Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Gary Neal, but they were no match for the Chicago […]

    Here is a statement that most NBA enthusiasts have not been used to hearing the past three years: The Bulls won a game in spite of Derrick Rose having an off night.  Not only did that happen last night, but it came against one of the elite teams in the league, the Oklahoma City Thunder.  […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/24/10 – Derrick Rose

    The Bulls are in the midst of a long road trip and were coming off a loss to the Lakers when they arrived in Phoenix. The wear and tear seemed like it was beginning to show as the Suns jumped on the Bulls early and led 36-17 at the end of the first. But Derrick […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/16/10 — Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose was not going to let this so-called “Circus Trip” start off like it had the last 12 years.  Every season the Chicago Bulls head out west early in the season for an extended road trip and every year since Michael Jordan left the trip has gone poorly, at one point even resulting in […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 11/1/10 — Luol Deng

    The NBA is under way and one of the most exciting young teams around the league is the Chicago Bulls.  They have a great young aspiring superstar in Derrick Rose, a veteran post presence in Carlos Boozer, and a high energy rebounder in Joakim Noah.  Forgotten in that mix of youth and talent is Luol […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/13/10 — Derrick Rose

    It was a strange night for the Bulls.  While off-the-court distractions involving a physical fight between the coach and the vice president were on everyone’s mind, Chicago was able to go out on the court and get a must-win.  The reason they won was because of the combined effort of their backcourt.  Both Kirk Hinrich […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 3/22/10 – Derrick Rose

    The Bulls were playing well enough to get their second straight win, and Derrick Rose was the catalyst.  With Rose out of the lineup, the Bulls stumbled into a 10-game losing streak.  The losing streak may have put a dagger in their playoff hopes, but Rose is making it clear he wants to will this […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 3/9/10 – Deron Williams

    The Utah Jazz are making a case as one of the elite teams in the NBA this year.  Although they started off slow, their point guard and leader has dragged them back into contention.  Last night was a great example of how Deron can dictate the pace and result of a game almost single-handedly.  While […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 2/16/10 – Derrick Rose

    In his first All-Star game Derrick Rose was quietly impressive, but chose to defer to his senior teammates for the most part.  Now that he’s back with the Bulls battling for playoff position, he isn’t being as timid.  Last night the Bulls took on the Knicks in Chicago and Rose showed exactly what it was […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 1/11/10 – Derrick Rose

    It’s not easy following a season in which you were named “Rookie of the Year” and led your team in one of the all-time best NBA playoff series against the Celtics. That’s hard to top. It’s even more difficult when you’re a point guard that relies on that explosive first step and you start the […]
