Yes, I broke out my White Mamba shirt.
Derrick Rose is back! *sheds tear of joy*
We're two preseason games into the new '13-'14 campaign and what better way to celebrate Rose's (actual) return than a 4-man pod?!
I was thrilled to join Mitch & Nillz as a special guest on The Bulls Show this week and above, you can listen to us and frequent contributor E, discuss all things Bulls preseason. That's more than Derrick Rose's return — we provide a fun and analytical fan perspective on the play of bulked up Taj Gibson, the grit of Kirk Hinrich, Jimmy Butler (and his haircut's) disruption on the court, and even the reported front office friction.
Plus, the guys tailored their world famous (probably) "Fastbreak" segment for me to answer some hip hop/NBA related questions. If you can't wait to hear my answer to "Which rapper personifies this Bulls team?", then fast forward to the 39 minute mark. In between, you'll have more of my analysis like that of my first point: "Derrick Rose is fast." I know, I know. Might as well play the whole thing through without skipping.
Shoutout to Mitch & Nillz for having me on. They have a lot of great things going on at the newly launched TheBullsShow.com — game recaps (Nillz was in Indiana for the opener), a fantasy basketball league, and an upcoming trivia event before the season starts with the winning team getting $500 cold hard cash. Interested? We'll be there too, I'm gettin' together a Gowhere Team now!
Whether a Bulls fan or NBA fan in general, I think you'll enjoy this episode. I can't promise you laughs... actually... I can, because anytime it's just the guys talkin' bout their favorite team, we're in for a good time. Give it a listen as work winds down on Friday, and be sure to subscribe on iTunes and/or keep it locked here on GWHH for future episodes.
BONUS: I got to pick the two songs in the episode. Here they are, hope you're not sleeping...
