SORT BY Relevancy
On this edition of The Versus Podcast, we're honored to have a personal friend and respected personality of Chi-Town on the line as Bryan Crawford, Bulls Insider for NBC Chicago and a contributor for Chicago Tribune's RedEye, chops it up with Bonta and Ed to talk about Derrick Rose's latest injury and how it's sobering to not only Bulls fans but Chicagoans as a whole.
Also, the three of us have a conversations about the current state of advanced analytics in the NBA and what it means for all basketball fans. Oh, and Ed has a terrible story to tell about the time Crawford challenged him to a game of basketball while on a broken leg.
Produced by Bonta. Hosted by Ed. Let's make some fun history.
The Chicago Bulls announced Derrick Rose had an MRI which showed a medial meniscus tear of the right knee that will require surgery. A timetable for Rose’s recovery will be given following his surgery.
That leaves Chicago with Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich as the current options at point guard.
Nate Robinson is an intriguing option for Chicago on the free agent market. Robinson played well for the Bulls during the 2013 playoffs where he averaged 16.3 points per game.
With that in mind, Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops.com joined Yahoo! Sports Radio and host Anthony Pepe to discuss the immediate future for Derrick Rose, whom the Chicago Bulls will target as a potential replacement and the future of coach Tom Thibodeau.
