The Chicago Bulls were expected to be pretty good this year with the emergence of Jimmy Butler and a healthy Derrick Rose (well as healthy as he’s gonna get apparently).  Instead they’ve had a disastrous season.  They’re currently sitting at 37-37, the No. 9 spot in the Eastern Conference and out of the playoffs if things don’t change in the remaining eight games.  The Bulls haven’t gelled under new head coach Fred Hoiberg and with Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol becoming free agents, the team could look different next year.  In fact, they may not be the only ones gone; their new franchise player could be on the way out as well.

Just a few days ago, the San Francisco 49ers decided to announce they will keep Colin Kaepernick on the roster, saying they plan to keep him past the April 1st deadline where his almost $12 million dollar salary becomes guaranteed for next year.

NBA: Report, Lakers Open To Basically Trading Everyone Except Kobe


It is safe to say this is another year to forget for the Lakers and their fans. The only saving grace at all is every game is important simply because it is Kobe’s last hurrah. Other than that, nobody would be showing up at Staples Center and damn sure nobody would show up for their away games. The front office clearly knows they stink and with that said it appears damn near the entire team is on the trading block!
