CHICAGO BULLS VIDEOS

September 15, 2014 Updates

For the 10th consecutive season, each singly-affiliated NBA team will have one NBA D-League team to which it may assign its players. The Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the lone independent NBA D-League Team, will be affiliated with the remaining 13 NBA teams (Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Bobcats, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards). To accommodate assignments to Fort Wayne, a flexible assignment system will be utilized when an independent NBA team assigns a player at a time when the Mad Ants already have either the maximum of four NBA players on assignment or two assigned players at the position of the NBA player who is being assigned. In either event, the NBA D-League will identify to the assigning NBA team any singly-affiliated NBA D-League team that is willing to accept the assigned player, and the independent NBA team assigning the player will choose a team from among those teams to assign the player. If no singly-affiliated NBA D-League team is willing to accept the assigned player, he will be assigned to one of the non-NBA-owned single affiliate teams pursuant to a lottery. NBA.com

The second part of his rehabilitation, he hopes, will arrive when he returns to Chicago next week following a brief post-tournament break. “I’m going to transfer this onto next season with the Bulls,” he said. “It’s really helped me with my recovery. Being off the floor, taking care of my body, eating right. I was feeling good every time I stepped on the floor, stretching every time, I think it’s going to help me with the Bulls season. “This has gotten my body accustomed. I haven’t been playing in a long time. I still have to get my rhythm back. But as far as I’m concerned, I think I performed well. Making this team was enough for me. The championship was the cherry on top, just coming here, performing in front of this great crowd. Just coming here. Now, sad to say, I have to put this behind me and concentrate on playing for the Bulls.” ESPN.com

Collet hopes to have Joakim Noah back with the team after three years of absence. Noah missed Olympic Games in London in 2012, Eurobasket 2013 and this year’s FIBA World Cup. “I hope Joakim Noah will return to the France NT” Collet said. “He helped us to win the silver medal at Eurobasket 2011 and I think he is now a better player. He became one of the best big men in the world” added Collet. Sportando

Gobert clearly listened. From a second-quarter dunk on Pau Gasol to almost flawless post play to helping hold two All-Star big men in check, Gobert was everywhere he needed to be. His 13 rebounds were only one fewer than the brothers Gasol and the ineffective Serge Ibaka combined, and a key factor in a 50-28 advantage on the boards. The young big man's single block of the night, on a Pau Gasol attempt, preempted France's closing 10-0 burst. "I knew everybody was expecting me to help the team," said Gobert, who averaged 2.3 points and 3.4 for the Utah Jazz last season amid two stints in the D-League. "Everybody knew I could stop them. That was just my mission. Everyone else played great offensively. I just had to stop Pau. He's one of the best players in the world and if you stop him, they're not as strong." ESPN.com

But a D-Rose is not a D-Rose if he isn’t playing his own particular style, and the talk with Coach K was the equivalent of Rose being read the riot act. Play the way you are capable of playing, and all the negativity will cease. “He gave me the green light,” Rose said. “When a coach like that tells you to be more aggressive, it gets you thinking another way. It eases you.” SheridanHoops
