Game No. 47: Bulls 94, Raptors 82
Joseph was unavailable to write this recap tonight and he’ll be in New York (lucky bastard) on Friday and Saturday so I’m going to be doing these next three recaps, against my will and better judgement. My lack of giving a crap about this particular Raptors season should be fairly evident by this point, but let me crystallize it for you. The only time I got fired up about anything related to the Raptors this season was when Jerryd Bayless put together a nice string of games while Jose Calderon was injured. Now Bayless is injured and there’s nobody else on this team that I particularly enjoy watching at the moment.
Full disclosure: I didn’t even get a chance to start recording this game on my PVR until four minutes into the second quarter when the Bulls were leading 32-31. I was delayed getting home tonight because I had to rectify a bonehead move from this past weekend — I put my kids’ iPad on top of my car on Sunday and then drove away. It might be one of the five dumbest things I’ve ever done, but I’m not really sure about that at this point in my life. Anyway, I met up with somebody in the Toys R Us parking lot next to Sherway Gardens Mall after work tonight so I could buy her old iPad. She brought a couple of dudes with her for protection and I handed her the money in an envelope. It might be the closest thing to a drug deal I’ll ever participate in.
I had some thoughts. Here are six of them.
