HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — All streaks must come to an end.
Chicago Bulls fans would love it if their team was the one to put an end to the Miami Heat’s streak at 27 games tonight at the United Center. Anything to punch a hole in the championship aura of the LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh-led Heat, whose rise has come at the Bulls’ expense.
Plus, what better way to make the pain of the ongoing Derrick Rose saga (will he or won’t he play this season …) go away, at least for a few hours?
Long-time Chicago Tribune Bulls beat writer K.C. Johnson joins us to break down the Bulls, the Rose drama and plenty more on Episode 110 of the Hang Time Podcast.
We also discuss the rash of injuries making the rounds around the league with just a few weeks left in the regular season, whose March Madness bracket is the ugliest heading into this weekend’s Sweet Sixteen, the pros (Nicole Eggert and HT fave Keshia Knight-Pulliam) and cons (Hall of Famers (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and comedian Louie Anderson) of a celebrity diving competition, why Heat coach Erik Spoelstra deserves to be Coach of the Year and why it’s so tough to stomach coaches who are more emotional than their players.
Check out all of that and more on Episode 110 f the Hang Time Podcast.
