Will Fred Hoiberg’s palming gripe get NBA officials’ attention?

The Zen Master was also the master of zebra manipulation. Phil Jackson publicly griped about NBA officiating for decades, once saying, “This was Munich in ’72 revisited,” and alleging that the Pat Riley-coached Knicks were playing “football, not ba…

The fashion answers behind Rajon Rondo’s sleeveless suit

Does Rajon Rondo have another wardrobe trick up his sleeve (or lack thereof)?

Lottery pick Denzel Valentine hasn’t cracked Bulls playoff rotation

Since Rajon Rondo’s injury, Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg has played rotation roulette to the point Isaiah Canaan is now starting. Yet lottery pick Denzel Valentine can’t get off the bench. “A lot of it is we’re shortening the rotation, as most teams do…

Bulls’ point guard woes continue — will Isaiah Canaan start Game 5?

Someone tell Fred Hoiberg to shut up and get his team ready to start a playoff game

Five things off Game 4 of Bulls-Celtics:

1. Look at Fred Hoiberg, trying to channel his inner Phil Jackson.

That’s just so cute.

After his team blew another home playoff game, Hoiberg blew up at the refs, such as the metronomic Hoiberg can blow up, over what he believes is Isaiah Thomas’ palming…
