Tom Thibodeau and Derrick Rose

Schuster: Thibodeau Not Being Smart With Rose’s Injuries

Coach Tom Thibodeau has constantly stated that if a player says he can play he will. But there are times when a coach has to take control and say no.

Schuster: Bulls Facing A Tough Schedule

The Bulls tonight begin a crazy schedule that calls for them to play 3 straight nights and 7 games over the next 9 days. Crazy? You bet. But all the NBA teams are facing nutty schedules like this due to the shortened season.

Schuster: Bears Eliminated And Need Help For Next Year

The scene in the locker room after the game here at Lambeau Field wasn’t nearly as bad as I feared. I anticipated a lot of long faces and angry scowls on the Bears player’s faces but instead was met with resignation.
