Bulls fire coach after play-off failure
In practice for play-off fever I have been keeping an eye on my Chicago teams in their end of season endeavours. The Bulls
eventually succumbed to a LeBron James inspired Cleveland Cavaliers 4 games to 1 in the 1st Round of the NBA Championship play-offs. As a word of warning to Phil Parkinson, Bulls head coach Vinny Del Negro was last night thanked for his efforts and then fired
Meanwhile the cities hockey team are doing better and are involved in a Conference Semi-Final with the Vancouver Canucks. On Saturday I tuned in to see the Blackhawks
get stuffed at home by the Canucks 5-1 following an absolutely listless performance, but in Game 2 last night with the game heading to overtime with just 90 seconds left first Kris Versteeg and then Patrick Kane scored for the Bulls to take the game 4-2 and level the best of 7 series.
The winners will play San Jose Sharks or Detroit Red Wings in the Western Conference Final. Don't worry the NHL play-off's might just be finished by the time the World Cup Final kicks off.
