Stupid, worthless, no good. Retarded, big mouth, know-it-all...... Bulls fans

You forgot ugly, lazy and disrespectful. - John Bender, "The Breakfast Club".

Yes, I'm a huge fan of "The Breakfast Club". I'm assuming that many of my readers are as well - it was set in Chicago, after all. While there are thousands and thousands of Bulls fans who don't live in Chicagoland, there are lots and lots of Breakfast Club fans all over the world, and odds are that some of them are also Bulls fans.

Bullsville is the home of the intelligent Chicago Bulls fan - it started out as a catch-phrase, but it has become reality. I am truly humbled when I read the comments to my articles, because they are so... intelligent. Seriously, I am honored to reply to the comments I read, because they often challenge me and make me do more research on the subjects I write about.

Arron Afflalo Bulls SG target? He should be

NBA Images

The Arron Afflalo Bulls era is possibly less than a month from beginning. Afflalo is an absolute perfect fit for the Bulls, for several reasons:
  • He is a very accomplished defender
  • At 6'5", 215 pounds, he has good size for a shooting guard
  • He is an outstanding 3-point shooter (over the last six seasons, he has shot .402, .434, .423, .398, .300 and .427 from behind the arc)
  • He has a very reasonable salary ($7.5 million this season)
  • He has 5 postseasons worth of playoff experience

Melo as a free agent AND trade for Love? Bulls can do it

Can the Bulls sign Carmelo Anthony as a free agent (without a sign and trade) and then have enough assets left to trade for Kevin Love?

A reader sent me that question (kudos to Jay Sparkz)but when he asked, it was with the attached condition that Melo sign for the same salary as Derrick Rose (who will make $18,862,876 in 2014-15). That answer is... well, I can't tell you in the second paragraph, where's the fun in that? I'd rather explain the reasons on the way.

Paying the NBA luxury tax for a winner- the truth behind the myth

Image by Midgejong

I guess to the untrained eye, it makes sense that the team that spends the most money on players and pays the NBA luxury tax will have the best team. After all, the best players make the most money, so if your team spends the most money, they should have more good players, right?

100%, absolutely, positively, wrong.

It's a myth. An untruth. A fallacy.

Having the highest payroll in the NBA only guarantees that your team won't be accused of being cheap.
Unfortunately, for the vast majority of folks who believe this nonsense, it just isn't true.

Bulls avoid luxury tax, but it was NOT their #1 priority

NBA Images


Bulls avoid luxury tax is not really news, since it has been widely reported for over two months that the team would almost certainly stay under the tax threshold as soon as Erik Murphy was claimed by the Utah Jazz after the Bulls waived him.

Please pardon the mess

As you can see, Bullsville.net has really grown over the last week or so, and I am still working out the kinks.

I've been spending most of my time getting the new Message Board set up, but I am also working on a few new features for the website. (The big one I'm working on involves TicketMaster, but that's all I can say for now).

Thanks for your patience, and thanks for all the comments and compliments you've been sending. As always, if there is something you'd like me to add to the site, feel free to post it on the message board, or email me anytime you want. If not for the readers, all of this would be a waste of time, and I truly appreciate all the input.
