The Bulls' bleak future makes the recent past hurt so much more

A great era of Bulls basketball is now officially behind us. You won't want to see what comes next. Let's start with Joakim Noah. On the day he became a Bull, Noah seemed like the last player Chicago would fall for. I remember his draft day look being aptly describe as "every Batman villain rolled into one" and I remember a heavy chunk of the fanbase earnestly wishing they had selected Spencer Hawes instead. Back then, Noah was among the most reviled athletes in the country as the brash weirdo that powered Florida to back-to-back national championships. Nearly a decade later, he exits the...

This seems like a good time to mention the Knicks' medical staff has improved

Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose are Knicks. (Full disclosure: This post used to contain sentences about Eric Gordon, and now it doesn't, and I feel good about that.) Noah's career is peppered with knee tendinitis, ankle soreness, and a recent shoulder surgery. Rose, of course, has had surgeries in both knees, and he smashed up his face to start last season. I've seen it said that New York has focused on injury history as a market inefficiency. I'm ... not sure that makes sense, since the Knicks have paid top-dollar for these guys with little competition to speak of, but I do buy the idea that...
