As if there was any doubt, Thibs' press conference game is in mid-season form.

Sam Smith

Thibs addressing media. Arms look much more muscular. Apparent symbol of team's new strength.

Thibs on DRose: "His confidence will come from playing. He has to play again."

Joe Cowley

Thibs calls Rose's FIBA Cup "a challenge," and acknowledged his shooting "wasn't there."

Nick Friedell

Congrats to all my friends @NewhouseSU on opening of Dick Clark Studios today. Somebody please take @Oprah to Dinosaur BBQ.

Nick Friedell

With new practice facility in place, it's a guarantee I will be a league leader for meals at the Palace. http://t.co/wwp37uWFtx

Nick Friedell

I hope the Twins make the right move and bring my man @FrankViola16 back home. No better coach in the game. http://t.co/SmR4LJJDMC

Aggrey Sam

Thanks for everything, Chicago. The city was good to me. Looking forward to living in Oakland.

Aggrey Sam

Moving out to Cali and will change my Twitter handle at some point. Don't take it personal if I unfollow. If we're cool, you have my info.

Aggrey Sam

It was a good overall experience, but this was a decision I chose to make. Hope you enjoyed the coverage over the past 5 years.

Aggrey Sam

Just in case anybody is expecting Bulls media day updates from me today, FYI: Sunday was my last day working for @CSNChicago.

Mike McGraw

#Bulls media day starts at 3 p.m. From today's paper: 5 questions as camp begins. dailyherald.com/article/201409…

Sam Smith

Everyone's got questions; it's the answers that are elusive. bit.ly/1DRosHU

Chuck Swirsky

Neil and Stacey will have the TV call for every pre season game. Bill and I will call final 3 pre season games and of course all 82 and post

Chuck Swirsky

I love NBA media day. Every organization is pumped up and excited about the season. Players and coaches are in great moods.Plenty of smiles

Nick Friedell

Pau Gasol

Amazing @alejanvalverde for the sixth medal in World Cups! Congrats!!

Chuck Swirsky

A week from tonight the Bulls first pre season game and a month from tonight the NBA opener as the Bulls play at MSG against the Knicks.

Pau Gasol

Enorme @alejanvalverde, con la sexta medalla en #Mundiales de ciclismo! Felicidades!!

KC Johnson

4 weeks after school started, our 3rd- and 1st-graders mocked me at breakfast for Bulls camp opening and back to work. Payback is a . . .

Shams Charania

Free agent D.J. Stephens, a freak athlete, has agreed to a training camp deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources tell RealGM.

Pau Gasol

Today at the @ChicagoBears game I had the honor to meet an NFL Hall of Famer, Gale Sayers! #Respectinstagram.com/p/tgubFGH2KY/

Chuck Swirsky

Tremendous job by Hawk/Steve/ Ed and DJ/ @lenandjd , Pat and Ron in the booth.Enjoy your off season. Pitchers and catchers report in 140days

Chuck Swirsky

Congratulations to @WGNRadio Awesome job bringing Cubs baseball to fans the past 9 decades!

Chuck Swirsky

A beautiful weekend in Chicago http://t.co/vzHD5uoh2E

Chuck Swirsky

Wow Bucs on the road beat the Steelers...that's just crazy.

Chuck Swirsky

Awful 2nd half for the Bears--time to hit the bottle....Mr. Pibb.

Chuck Swirsky

Bears block a fga by the Packers---there's still hope! Um..not really. Just a bad,second half. I go back to time management late 1st half.

Chuck Swirsky

Very depressing. Great start but defense was a no show.

Chuck Swirsky

If Bears lose this game..Cutler will go to 1-10 vs Green Bay..is that right?

Chuck Swirsky

Bennett is a beast---unstoppable ..one of the few bright spots today as well as Forte and the overall volume of play of OL.

Chuck Swirsky

If the Bears lose this game they'll fall to 2-2 with both losses coming at Soldier Field. What's up with that?

Chuck Swirsky

Hey, All is not lost....The Bulls open camp Tuesday.

Chuck Swirsky

This game has become a certified blow out.

Chuck Swirsky

That was a bad, bad call Refs are awful today Awful. Packers get TD.

Chuck Swirsky

Og great---Bears called for holding....Packers 1st down. Bostic with a hold on a FG attempt--really?

Chuck Swirsky

Plenty of blame to go around Cutler or Marshall..bottom line..it was an interception.

Chuck Swirsky

Did Geno Smith steal Cutler's uniform at halftime?

Chuck Swirsky

Bulletin just in. Rodgers is good. Wow.

Chuck Swirsky

Noooooo. Cutler not a good decision.

Chuck Swirsky

Not at the game but is the Soldier Field turf an issue today? Lot of players slipping without being hit.

Chuck Swirsky

Packers up 24-17.....

Chuck Swirsky

Sorry---I'm just a fan but time management the last 60sec was inexcusable

Chuck Swirsky

Bears wasted that drive by not calling 2nd time out earlier...horrible.

Chuck Swirsky

You make the call...TD or not?

Chuck Swirsky

The Bears-Packers game is an old school Chicago Blitz -NJ Generals USFL shoot out.

Chuck Swirsky

Oh my----on side kick + Rodgers= disaster.

Chuck Swirsky

Okkkkkk.......you want to give Rodgers the ball on his own 41? Um, I don't think so.

Chuck Swirsky

That was one the slickest and sweetest play calls I've seen by any team this season.

Chuck Swirsky

Bears back on top 17-14

Chuck Swirsky

What a play .....tremendous call.

Chuck Swirsky

Bears banged up OL is doing a tremendous job...Packers can't get to Cutler.

Chuck Swirsky

3rd down call... Bears need to fumble here to get the 1st down.

Chuck Swirsky

Rodgers to Nelson Packers take the lead.

Chuck Swirsky

Is the Bears game being officiated by replacement refs?

Chuck Swirsky

To quote Vince Lombardi, " What the heck is going out here? "

Chuck Swirsky

Good thing Hawk isn't broadcasting this game..he'd be all over this officiating crew.

Chuck Swirsky

Bears may want to cover Nelson...just saying.

Chuck Swirsky

Bears wasted a chance to score a TD..tough pass for Jeffery to handle..that was on Cutler. 10-7 @ChicagoBears

Aaron Brooks

Almost game time.... http://t.co/fuUIoblHgm

Chuck Swirsky

What a play call by Trestman !

Chuck Swirsky

Forte's final rushing yards today vs Packers 2, 327

Chuck Swirsky

Forte just trucked Burnett

Chuck Swirsky

Let's blame that last Packers score on Carlos Marmol.

Chuck Swirsky

Wow--that was too easy--Bears D got ripped up.

Pau Gasol

Happy birthday to my good friend @Jose Manuel Calderon! Have a great day and I'll see you on Opening Night at Madison Square Garden!

Chuck Swirsky

Packers nation very, very quiet on Twitter

Chuck Swirsky

80 yard drive...chewed the clock....Rodgers stayed on the sideline...Packers D is gassed. Love it.

Chuck Swirsky

Wow--too easy- Bears!!!

Pau Gasol

Feliz cumpleaños a mi buen amigo @Jose Manuel Calderon! Nos vemos en el primer partido de la temporada en el Madison! Disfruta de tu dia!

Chuck Swirsky

Long, long day at the office for the Packers folks. They can't stop the run or pass.

Chuck Swirsky

Love the play calling by Trestman

Chuck Swirsky

Wow--refs blew that call..Bears will take it.

Chuck Swirsky

Bears carving up Packers D

Chuck Swirsky

Great start for Bears offense. Get Forte going. Going to be a long day for Packers D.

Pau Gasol

Congratulations to @lorenzo99 for the victory in #MotoGP and to @maverickmack25 in #Moto2! Great job!#GPAragón
