Though the team hasn't been able to sport a healthy frontcourt (though they've fronted a healthy sport coat, from the bench) all season due to injuries to both Carlos Boozer(notes) and Joakim Noah(notes), the Chicago Bulls are rolling.
The team is 25-12 even after working through one of the tougher early season schedules of the NBA's first half, it seems a lock to win the Central Division, and both the in-house and, um, out-house media following the team have developed a sense of humor along the way.
Nicely done. Keith Bogans'(notes) turnover rate of 13.6 percent is actually one of the lower marks on the team, but he's easily the worst starter on a playoff team as it stands now. He works his butt off and is a great teammate, but, come on. It's Keith Bogans.
And then there's Bulls.com, which is now giving us endless streams of hilarity with its Stacey King soundboard. Sure, soundboards are a little 2003-ish, but wouldn't you like to just presume that the next wave of junior high crank callers are annoying local businesses with King shouting "Freeze it right now!" and "OK, go ahead and roll it!"?
