A scene familiar enough to make Chicago basketball fans wistful for the glory days of the '90s unfolded in a cavernous gym on an unseasonably cold March morning. No. 23 on the Bulls pushes the ball upcourt against the Pacers, sees an open man and lofts a crisp pass that finds him underneath the hoop in one fluid motion. Ball meets net. Two points go on the board. "For us, we're always pushing and we're always using our arms," he said. "Shooting gets difficult. " All of 10 miles in with roughly 20,000 or so fewer fans in the stands separate Edgewater's Broadway Armory Park from the...

They kick and scream. They shout for help from the minor leagues. They can't deal with the pathetic display before them. "They" are the majority of Cubs fans. Watching games has been more painful in 2012 than in any other year, they say. Psha! Sometimes I wonder if these fans have had their memories erased. I agree - this team is horrible. However, people need to understand that this starting lineup consists of players who would be lucky to find the bench on a pennant contender.

When LeBron James took the court wearing a black mask to protect his broken nose, the Internet nearly exploded. It looked so badass that before the game was over, there were already photoshopped images of LBJ as Zorro and Batman floating around. Unfortunately - or fortunately. if the hype surrounding the mask annoyed you - it was a one-shot deal for "The King" as the NBA forced him to ditch the black mask for something a little more see-through. And how did LeBron respond? He dropped a career- and franchise-high 61 points on Charlotte in only his third game wearing a mask.

Kevin Ware's tibia fracture during Sunday's Louisville-Duke game was a gruesome injury and a sad one. Though his teammates rallied around him and defeated the Blue Devils to earn a trip to the Final Four, Ware will miss the rest of his sophomore season because of the compound fracture. As jeopardizing and serious as the injury looked, Ware was reportedly moving around on crutches already today. That's not unusual, said Dr. Mark Hutchinson, an orthopedic surgeon and head team physician at UIC Hospital.

Sunday marks the one-year anniversary that the Bulls franchise was set back at least a year with Derrick Rose's ACL tear in his left knee. Rose suffered through the lockout-shortened season with a string of injuries that ended with one of the more devastating things that can happen to an athlete. Bulls fans may remember what the day was like, April 28, 2012, in Chicago: Cold, damp with overcast skies. With the city feeling like the team was on a collision course in the Eastern Conference finals with Miami, nobody could've imagined how the weather that day would...

Here's the situation. You are a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. (You're not, but just go with it.) Your boyfriend is a Buffalo Bills wide receiver. The two teams are playing each other Sunday. Whom do you cheer for? Kelsi Reich, the Cowboys cheerleader in question, was faced with that dilemma Sunday. For her, though, it just might have been a win-win. Her team won easily. And her boyfriend, David Nelson, caught a touchdown pass for the Bills. Hip, hip, hooray.   Oh yes Tony Romo Dallas quarterback Romo wasn't impressed with Nelson's...

Hall of Fame basketball writer Sam Smith probably has forgotten more about basketball than most people remember. But when it came to Derrick Rose's knee injury and the backlash he took for sitting out the 2012-13 season, Smith saw something he hadn't witnessed in 30 years covering professional sports: fans turning on the homegrown star of the hometown team. RedEye talked to the co-author of "The Jordan Rules" for his take on Rose's injury and the 2013-14 Bulls. Talk about why you were upset by the backlash toward Rose.

This was a big game. The players knew it. The fans knew it. Everyone knew it. And the way the Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings played Tuesday night at the United Center proved it. In what played out like a heavyweight title fight, the two Original Six teams played exciting hockey, unloading shot after shot on their opponent. Goalies Corey Crawford of the Blackhawks and Jimmy Howard of Detroit absorbed the blows, for the most part. The Central Division-leading Red Wings drew first blood 2:22 into the game, when Valtteri Filppula...

Daylight saving time ended this weekend, which leaves us bracing for four months of early sunsets. The Bears are also entering their own traditional period of darkness, which this year involves a groin injury to Jay Cutler and a still-aging and still-injured defense that despite a bye week is still old and still hurt. We understand that periods of bone-deep malaise are a part of any Bears season. Last year gave us the Jason Campbell Monday night game in San Francisco, when a porous Bears offensive line coughed up five and a half sacks to an out-of-his-mind Aldon Smith, and as a result the...

Bears tight end Martellus Bennett showed off his artwork publicly for the first time at a reception Monday for The Dinner Party, a monthly talk show at City Winery. And while proceeds from the show will benefit After School Matters, Bears fans wanted to talk about only one thing: the injuries to Jay Cutler and Lance Briggs. "We'll take it one game at a time," Bennett said. "There's a lot of ups and downs just like a theme park. There's a lot of roller coasters in the football season.

At the risk of making the understatement of the year, the Bears' bye week likely could not have come at a better time. First Jay Cutler left Sunday's game in the second quarter with a groin injury. Then Lance Briggs went down with a shoulder issue. Then Charles Tillman and Major Wright were sidelined. Briggs' backup at linebacker, Blake Costanzo, needed X-rays. Even Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery looked shaken up at one point. After all that, the Bears' 45-41 loss to Washington, dropping them to 4-3 on the season, is almost an afterthought.

"I don't look around and see [backups]," Lance Briggs told reporters after last week's win over the N.Y. Giants. "I look around and see Chicago Bears out there. " That's the spirit, Lance! While that might be the greatest teamwork-related quote ever, it's also one of the most depressing of 2013. Because by the end of the Giants game, the Bears defense had - ahem - backups playing on the defensive line, at linebacker and in the secondary. The Bears get a bye after their game against Washington, so they'll have time to get healthy.

Busy with my life of slinging brilliant insight and watching as much NBA playoff basketball as I can manage, I'd pledged to catch only the second half of Tuesday night's Memphis-San Antonio game, and in doing so completely forgot to watch the draft lottery. Therefore, my phone practically blew up in my pocket, sending shards of iPhone glass into my thigh, when every basketball fan friend I have from Ohio texted me simultaneously as the league revealed that the Cleveland Cavaliers, for the third time in a decade, would have the #1 overall pick.

The NBA Playoffs got off to an unfortunate start this weekend with major injuries to key players, including a torn ACL for last year's MVP. Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose suffered a season-ending injury with 1:10 left in the fourth quarter of Game 1 against the Philadelphia 76ers. I hate to be cold-blooded, but if the Bulls were a smart organization they would trade Rose immediately this off-season. Let's dispatch with a few obvious points before we get into the meat of this very unpopular opinion.

The Bulls completed the first "half" of their lockout-shortened 66-game season Wednesday night with a 110-91 win over the injury-plagued Milwaukee Bucks. Yes, they're even more injury-plagued than the Bulls. And while it's true that the Bulls technically have played more than half their games already - 35 of 66-- the All-Star break is the symbolic halftime of the NBA season. It's also the time when sports publications all over the country hand out their awards for first-half awards.

There's a disturbing pattern that emerges when star athletes get hurt. Just about anytime sports fans question an injury to a player, the first thing that is questioned is that player's "manhood. " The player is even more scrutinized when the injury occurs before or during a playoff game. Next, fans run to social media questioning that player's mettle without having all the facts. And once they learn the facts, there are still those who are not as forgiving as they should be. Now Luol Deng has entered the category of "questionable" sports injuries along with Derrick Rose and Jay Cutler.
