The Bulls are BACK 

Last night the Chicago Bulls played in, and won, their first playoff game since Michael Jordan's last championship team in 1998. This edition of the Bulls has a long way to go to reach the championship level, and will likely be vanquished by Shaquille O'Neal and the Miami Heat (assuming they survive the Washington Wizards in round 1). Still, it has been a long hard slog for the franchise and they deserve some recongnition.

Since MJ's departure the Bulls have traded Elton Brand for a high school player and seen the promising career of Jay Williams end before it got started. Opening this season 0-9, it looked pretty bleak for this group as well. But coach Scott Skiles brought the team together, and they finished the season with 47 wins, one of the more interesting stories in the NBA this year. While young star Eddie Curry sits out the playoffs with a heart murmer, this young group, lead by Kirk Hinrich and Ben Gordon, should be fun to follow this post season, and in seasons to come.

Does this mean the Superfans will return soon to SNL?

We further note that Scott Skiles is a former Spartan... with all due apologies to Tigerhawks.

Wasn't Skiles busted for drugs while he was in the NBA? I always thought of Skiles and Lenny Dykstra as twins separated at birth.

I was surprised when he was made a head coach.

Actually, if I recall correctly, I think Skiles coke bust came when he was still at MSU. (I recall discussing this on my sports talk show back in the winter of 1986.) I believe Skiles was a good citizen during his NBA career.

He seems to be a hell of a coach, and I am glad he was not excluded due to his youthful infraction. Hey, it was the 80s.
