Former top overall pick and leading MVP candidate, which Rudy J predicted at the beginning of the NBA season, Derrick Rose has the city of Chicago buzzing that basketball is back in the windy city. So much so that Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf made a bold prediciton yesterday that his team will likely win four NBA championships under the Rose helm.
“If you don’t see something special in Derrick Rose, then you’re blind,” Reinsdorf said. “We have an outstanding coach, an outstanding bunch of players, the team is deep, and if we stay healthy we have an awfully good chance of winning at least four championships.”
Hopefully Reinsdorf will be able to see his Bulls achieve somewhere near his four title claim that is if he isn’t talked into breaking up what they’ve built by some general manager again.
Chicago White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said he would have allowed manager Ozzie Guillen to go to the Floirda Marlins if they would have sent back a particular player in a trade.
”The Marlins asked for permission to talk to Ozzie, and we told them we’d let Ozzie go if they gave us a particular player,” Reinsdorf told the Chicago Sun-Times. “But if they would have given us this particular player, I would have let anybody go…. Everybody is available at a price. The only player I had that wasn’t available was Michael Jordan.”
Reinsdorf wouldn’t identify the player, but it’s believed to be phenom Mike Stanton which the Marlins would have no intention on ever giving up at this stage of his career.
Reinsdorf went on to say that despite the season-long rift between Guillen and general manager Ken Williams, he was never given an ultimatum to choose between the two.
Jonathan Lee Riches is suing Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Denver Nuggets superstar Carmelo Anthony, Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss and Chciago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf from his prison cell. Riches is not new to suing people as he has sued George Bush, Martha Stewart, Steve Jobs, Michael Vick, Lady Gaga and even Somali pirates in the past. In his suit he says
Carmelo Anthony told me he is going to kill me … I was his former boyfriend and we were in a sexual relationship in 2000.
Mark Cuban stole my credit cards and tried to buy the Texas Rangers with my money. Mark Cuban assaulted me serving ice cream at Dairy Queen.
Jerry Buss sold me Jeannie Buss on eBay and I was promised a Lakers janitor job when I get out of prison for less than minimum wage.
Obviously, these are all not true.
MLB Network announced that Chicago White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, General Manager Ken Williams and Manager Ozzie Guillen will be featured in The Club, an original reality series produced for MLB Network that will air this summer.
It’s a follow up to 2009’s The Pen that featured the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen and what happens in a major league bullpen. The Club will follow Reinsdorf, Williams and Guillen with unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to a Major League Baseball club’s front office. The Club is scheduled to premiere on MLB Network on Sunday, July 4 at 7:00 p.m. CST.
The Club will focus on the realities and challenges both on and off the field for the men who run a MLB franchise. Beginning this month through to the Trade Deadline on July 31, MLB Productions’ cameras will capture footage at the club’s Spring Training camp in Arizona, during roster meetings, on Opening Day, on the road for away games and to get a look at Reinsdorf, Williams and Guillen away from the ballpark.
