Living in a hotel near the Bulls' practice facility, Kyrylo Fesenko recently wanted to check out downtown Chicago. So the affable Ukrainian, who never has had a driver's license,did what he has done at his two previous NBA stops: He took a cab. One small problem: The Chicago area is a bit larger than Salt Lake City and Indianapolis. After spending $140 for a ride, Fesenko found new motivation. "I'm actually thinking about getting my license now," Fesenko said. "I was like, '$70 each way? Uh, uh, that's not going to happen.'" Chicago Tribune

Fesenko is getting serious. Well, at least in the moments he isn't sticking his hairbrush into the phalanx of microphones surrounding Kirk Hinrich after a recent game. "Don't get me wrong: I will never, ever stop joking. That's who I am," Fesenko said. "But now, I just understand more when to joke. When it's time to do hard work and when it's time to have fun. "In that case, I really adore Coach Thibs (Tom Thibodeau). He's really hard on us. But when we have a water break, he's OK to crack a couple of jokes. It's pretty cool. I'm watching him and trying to absorb everything I can. A defensive-minded player and a defensive-minded coach, what could be better for me?" Chicago Tribune
