The Bulls finally had their full roster for Sunday’s game against the Knicks in New York. Fat lot of good it did them.

The Bulls are about to start a back-to-back-to-back stretch of games. Thank you, Mr. Lockout.
This week’s Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday special is the centerpiece of seven games in nine days. Thanks again, Mr. Lockout.
