Chicago Bulls Play the Knicks on Christmas Day


Christmas just got a little sweeter. The Bulls will be playing the Knicks at noon on Christmas Day. They’ll also get Kevin Durant and the Thunder on MLK Day. Here’s what former Bull Steve Kerr had to say about his old team:

“I actually think that (the Bulls) are the most well-rounded team in the East. Obviously, Miami has the most talent but when you look at Chicago’s mix, they’ve got two unbelievable frontcourt defenders with (Joakim) Noah and Taj Gibson, they’ve got the great point guard play of Derrick Rose and now you’ve got the low-post scoring that Chicago has been lacking for years with Boozer. I just really like that mix. They’ve done a nice job of quietly putting some pieces in there on the wings with Kyle Korver and Brewer. They’ve got a really deep mix of players and I think they are going to be really good.”

Here is the rest of the national schedule:

    Steve Kerr is a bit bias due to his properious run with the Bulls but I think he is being honest. Chicago has quietly made all the right moves, not quite the same as getting Lebron but filled all the right holes we had. Inside scoring with Boozer and the long ball with Korver. Brewer will be better than his stats says he is, just look at Williams comments when he was traded to the Griz.

    I’d still like an bench guy who could be an offensive dynamo, but other than that the Bulls could be the sleeper hit of the East.

    Looks like they play Rudy Gay and the Griz, not K. Durant and the Thunder on MLK day.

    I think weekend fans don’t but the bulls will be a lot better and will give the sun shine kids a run for their money!
