If You Want A Good Look Inside The Bulls Locker Room, Go To Argentina

I've always typed there's too much text here. Hey, Veektor can smile!



And the only time someone gets a pass for mispronouncing the Captain's name.



I'd like to thank the local media for portraying the PaxSkiles built, pre-Noah roster as a group of pouty introverts. Fans love stuffy.

But can we forgive him for calling Adrian Griffin 'Eddie'?? (I think he did say Adrian but the subtitles messed it up)

These vids are a goldmine. Gordon clearly sees himself as a point guard. Let the contract sniping begin, heh

I see your point on how this team is portrayed, but I don't think the y ever grouped loveable 'chapu' amongst the stuffy crowd. And none of the others really distinguished themselves as the next Scott Pollard or anything.

I guess, but headbands and "free money" sure put a damper on this type of thing for the whole team. All I'm asking for is entertaining puff, and a break from the rhetoric. That Baron Davis quote wouldn't have come out of a postgame interview regarding defense and energy. Comcast coverage and the beat articles were getting stale after the All-Star break.

(ugh, wrong 'identity')

I thought you always shat on puff pieces. Or only if it's about Juwan Howard :)

As much as they got crap for their underealized potential, I bet the media probably misses Eddy and Tyson quite a bit.

Oh, and I agree the rhetoric is tiresome. But I think that's every sports team everywhere. It takes too much effort and risk to say anything interesting, so the cliches serve as a quick language between them and the press. To 'energy'!

Wasn't that second video posted on Blog-A-Bull a month or so ago?

Not by Matt, or anyone nearly as important. That's as good as a no, by the way.

I wonder if some of the reason for this is the stale "professionalism" of the U.S. sports media, in general. I can't imagine a U.S. reporter gleefully showing off his press pass to the camera, much less discussing the photo on it with Ben Gordon. It seems to me our coverage would be a lot more entertaining if they let more "amateurs" in to these locker rooms and let them just shoot the shit with the players.

Note to Comcast execs who might be reading: I'm available.

BG is so pumped about the championship balls. Hilarious.

And yeah, even our fluff journalism is Ahmad hanging out at Shaq's house. There's no crazy-ass interlude music.
