Robinson made it clear he wanted to return to the Bulls in 2013, but without much money to spend, they chose not to do it and Robinson got a two-year deal in Denver. Even so, he was happy to be back at the United Center. "It's always lovely to come back here," Robinson said. "I tell people Chicago's my second home. Everybody's like, 'We'd love to have you back.' Just to hear that, you can tell they really appreciate what I did here and what I brought to the table, because I did it from my heart and did it for the fans." Arlington Heights Daily Herald

Aaron Brooks played pee-wee football with fellow Seattle native Nate Robinson, starting when he was 7 years old. "We never lost, every age group," Brooks said before Thursday's game. Brooks and Robinson played AAU basketball and ran track together, but there's one sport Robinson refuses to play Brooks. "Aaron's a heck of a bowler," Robinson said. "He's probably the best bowler in the NBA, left or right handed. Him and his family have been doing bowling leagues since he was 2 or 3 years old." Arlington Heights Daily Herald

Mike McGraw: Nate is one year older than Brooks. They went to different high schools in Seattle but have been friends for a long time. Nate also said he's hoping Brooks isn't a one-and-done with the #Bulls, like a couple other successful backup PGs. #Bulls Twitter @McGrawDHBulls
