Chicago just wrapped up Lollapalooza yesterday, so in the spirit of the event: here’s shout-out-palooza!
Great content is being pumped out across the BN universe, so make sure you go follow everything over at BN Bears, BN Cubs and BN Bulls. Luis has been hitting up Bears training camp bringing plenty of great coverage and live-tweeting. Meanwhile, Brett and Michael are walking us through the NL Central war as the Cubs try to hold onto first place.
Go follow everyone, if you don’t already!
Wow, so many great people to go follow! I hear if you follow all of them, you’ll become a certified Bleacher Head (I totally made that up and it means nothing, but doesn’t sound half bad, right?)
- Bulls fans actually grew quite fond of Wayne Selden after last season, but – and with no disrespect to him at all – if he’s starting even 13 games for you right now, then your team needs to make some big adjustments. Here’s what next for him:
Wayne Selden on verge of signing deal with Shangdong in China, source told @stadium. One-year deal worth close to 3.5 million.

- The 24-year-old guard was most likely on his way to accepting a minimum deal in the league anyway, one that would pay him less than this supposed $3.5 million one-year deal in China. So that’s not a bad outcome, all things considered. And, hey, Lance Stephenson decided to go this route earlier this offseason as well, and if the players are getting more money, why not! Get yours, dude.
- New Bulls point guard Tomas Satoransky looks like he might be playing in the FIBA World Cup on the Czech National Team. Sure, more time overseas means less time with his new teammates, but this might give us an opportunity for a greater preseason look at what Satoransky can offer to the Bulls.

- Nate Robinson was balling-out in Chicago again, but this time as a member of the Big-3. The former Bulls (and basically every other team) point guard showed off a classic Robinson-move going in between the legs of the defender to blow right past him and finish around the rim.

- Oh, Chicago-native Will Bynum also set the Big-3 single-game scoring record by dropping 33 points. Do you know who would easily beat that? Michael Jordan. That’s my transition to point out that Ice Cube (the league’s creator) told the Sun-Times he thinks if Jordan wasn’t the owner of the Hornets, he would be playing. Um, Jordan, sell the dang Hornets and get yourself in the Big-3!
- Luke Kornet made a Seinfeld joke. The Chicago Bulls made a good decision.

- We already knew Joakim Noah was an absolute beast, but I guess we now see where he got it from. Watch as Noah’s father jumps into the water and bites a fish. Yes, you read that right.

- For the pure love of basketball, this needs to be included in bullets. My goodness, Marina, that woman has a family!
