HoopsHype Chicago Bulls twitter
I guess leaving early for the extra day of transition made a huge difference Whatever
So like Bulls training camp starts in two weeks?
You know I'm a Bears homer. Love the Bears but with so many flags this game is border line unwatchable
Of course there s a flag. Let me recall my earlier tweet about this game ending in 2018. Make it 2118 .
Did the Bears bring the Soldier Field turf to SF?
That's a penalty right there on Culver. No flag
This game will end in 2018
That's a good special teams play.
Special teams ugh ugh
Special teams ugh
Forte needs 25 carries
What are you expecting tonight with Bears and 49ers?
If the Packers make the playoffs by one game they should give a share to Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg
J E T S Lol
Tons of media reports indicate Marshall AND Jeffery are playing tonight
Wow----Wilkerson ejected for punching, throwing arms, etc.....that was an every week occurrence 20-30-40 years ago...
Rose played one less game in 16 days during FIBA World Cup than he has last two NBA seasons.
Rose's plans: "Probably take a week off, come back and start things up. I don’t know yet (where to train). I haven’t decided where (yet)."
Not feelin the Bucs uniforms
Rose thinks Pau's coming to Chicago the 22nd or 24th and they'll dine: "(Giordanos) That’s a free meal, so yeah."
Thibs on Pau, who was all tournament: "I’m very pleased the way he’s moving, how he feels. We’re anxious to get started."
Thibs: "Physically (Rose is) great. Mentally he’s great. Obviously, I want him to shoot better, but this is the first time he's getting hit.
More Thibs on Rose: "He has shown he can handle back-to-backs and 3 games in a row. That’s all positive. He feels good about where he is."
Thibs says next question: "He's had 6 weeks of basketball. So I think when we get to camp, that question is no longer there."
Thibs re Rose: "The more he plays, the better he will be. He’s pleased overall. It was a grind. We had 5 games in 6 days. He handled that."
Thibs on Rose: "I knew there would be ups and downs. (It's) why I thought it would be so good for him. Real positives the way he moved."
Rose: "I still have to get my rhythm back. But as far as I’m concerned I think performed good."
Rose says it's special: "A blessing, just being able to travel around the world and play this sport that we love playing."
Rose: "This really helped me recovery-wise-off the floor taking care of my body, eating right. I felt good every time I stepped on the floor
Rose on playing: "Actually making it all the way through to the end and playing good. It let me know I’m on the right path."
Rose looking toward season: "I think everybody is excited; the city is excited, the players are excited. So I think it should be a good year
Rose: "I still have to get my rhythm. But as far as I’m concerned I think I performed good. Making this team was enough for me and (winning)
More Rose: "I think this really helped me with recovery, taking care of my body, eating right. I was feeling good every time on the floor."
Rose on the positives: "I think this was a preparation test for me. Coming here, learning my routine. Going to transfer this to next season.
Rose reaction to gold: "I feel great. I got a gold without even scoring, man (laughing). Came here with a goal; that was win a championship"
What a shock: Thibs has Bulls camp already planned out: "When you make a commitment to do this, you have to take care of all that before."
Thibodeau said one benefit to Rose playing for last 6 weeks is when he gets to camp, the question of health is no longer there.
Thibs on Rose: "Physically he’s great. Mentally he’s great. We had 5 games in 6 days. He handled that. There was a lot that was real good."
Thibodeau on Team USA: "No one cared about their statistics. They just cared about winning. And that’s what makes it special."
Thibodeau noticeably touched by USA Basketball experience. "It's been wonderful," he said.
Rose sporting gold. http://t.co/Tl1kxLjVpC
Jets 21-3 over the Packers. That is not a typo. Green Bay could start the season 0-2.
Rose officially receives his second international basketball gold medal to go with being on winning USA 2010 world championship team
Kyrie Irving wins Most Valuable Player of FIBA Basketball World Cup tournament after NBA All Star game MVP earlier in year.
Tom Thibodeau and Adrian Griffin waiting for medal ceremony. http://t.co/I9SHMhzGvJ
Onus is on Adam Silver to figure out how to limit basketball world championships to just once every 4 years, not World Cup & Olympics.
Beyond stats, this is most important for Rose and Bulls: 9 games in 16 days with no issues. Training camp in 2 weeks.
Nice for Bulls that Rose got to shake off rust & didn't get hurt. Otherwise, I'd say this tourney was a complete waste of time for US,
Rose comes through 9 games in 16 days in good health, strong and aggressive, which was his primary goal. Good head start on season.
DRose finishes 0-for-4 and fails to score as U.S. downs Serbia for World Cup gold. Rose, who had 6 assists, finished 1-19 from 3-pt range
Derrick Rose finishes the tournament 1 for 19 from 3-point range. He did have team-high 6 assists today. Irving 26 pts, Harden 23 vs. Serbia
129-92 Final. USA wins gold.Congratulations
Rose finishes scoreless in 16 mins, but with team high 6 assists as USA sweeps through Basketball World Cup w/129-92 gold medal game win
Final horn: US wins 129-92. Best news for US is only one all-star was lost for the season in pursuit of this gold medal.
Rose only USA player not to score today?
Finally, proof the U.S. is best in the world at basketball.
USA ahead 117-77 w/5:44 left. Rose, Plumlee and Drummond only USA players scoreless
Fans chanting for Scalabrine
USA rolling 105-67 after 3. But impressive tournament for a Serbian team that was supposed to be watching Spain or France in this game
USA with 100 pts
Sonny Weaver Jr is so ecstatic he s going to give a Browns game ball to Kyrie Irving.
Serbia sitting back in that zone isn't working that well as USA now with 13 threes and Irving 6-6: 91-59 USA. Probably safe to return to NFL
Kyrie Irving....best player on the court today--he, Davis, Faried have been incredible in the tournament.
USA up 31....
Saints start 0-2....wow
Could get ugly before this one's over, Cousins with hard finish that had Serbian players upset. Big Raduljica with a T; USA up 32
Cheap shots by Serbia...similar to what Lithuania did the other day
Boogie Cousins is playing well and that's a great sign for Sac.
Rose with a three in second half warmups. Yes, the ball fits. Halftime Macarena. Been awhile since we heard that one.
They just gave out awards at halftime for the Most Valuable Fan and the best country, the latter being the Philippines. Not sure who voted.
USA and Serbia combine for 38 first half goals, which is an entire season for a soccer league
USA leads 67-41 at halftime in biggest scoring outburst of tourney. Irving 18; Harden 17. Cousins 8 rebs and 2 blox.
US lead 67-41 at half. Kyrie Irving has 18, James Harden 17. Rose scoreless, hasn't played a ton since Irving has been on a roll.
USA up by 26 at half.
Thibs having trouble controlling himself after sitting much of tourney. Up yelling defensive instructions as USA staff calls for lozenges
USA 11-15 threes for 65-36 lead late in half after being one of the poorer 3 pt shooting teams in tourney. Always love surprise endings
12-for-16 from the 3 for Team USA. How do you say "Ouch'' in Serbian?
U.S. is 11-for-15 from 3-point range vs. Serbia.
Time for Serbia to start waiving the towel. And a white one at that.
Oh my USA up 27
Can't wait for Bulls-Cavs games
KIrving has 18 first-half points - Harden 3 makes it a 26-point lead for Team USA.
What a nifty touch pass by Rose to Faried
Rose back with fabulous touch, tip pass on outlet for dunk to Faried: 45-26 USA
Great pass by Rose on the dunk by the #7.
Rose with a touch pass to Faried for dunk and 3-point play chance.
