The Chicago Bulls
of the National Basketball Association have been on a major roller coaster ride this season and it is pretty baffling to figure out why. They started out the season playing pretty well and they have consistently been one of the top three or four teams in the Eastern Conference for the entirety of the season, but Derrick Rose came out last week and said he was incredibly frustrated with his teammates and felt that the team was not playing the type of basketball that they needed to play, due to the deep roster that he feels they possess. They turned things around in a big way and started winning convincingly throughout the next week and capped it off by taking down the Golden State Warriors in overtime, giving Golden State just their seventh loss of the entire season. Fans like Lee Slaughter
were shocked when it looked like things were going in the right direction for Chicago, but then they lost to the astonishingly bad New York Knicks. Although they lost to the Knicks, something is different in New York and they have actually won four of their last five games, which is mind blowing when you think about the fact that they had five wins at the midpoint of the season. Chicago dropped another head scratching game last night, as they fell to the Los Angeles Lakers, who have been struggling all season and just lost Kobe Bryant.
