Our long national (basketball association) nightmare finally is over.
LeBron James left Cleveland with about as much sympathy and gratitude as the way Richard Nixon left Washington. James is moving his kingdom to Miami to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form the most impressive basketball threesome since the last most impressive one.
How many Big Threes are allowed …

This free agency week that perhaps heralds the birth of a new dynasty or champion reminds me of the time just before my son was born.
We were at the doctor, and the doctor said it could be any day. So we were told to just go home and relax. Relax!

And now we wait.
The last time I heard that in quite this dramatic a sense was in Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.

Time to strike up the band and get Benny the Bull out to O’Hare!
Oh, right. That didn’t work last time when the Bulls met Tracy McGrady in 2000 with a carnival and he fled to Orlando.

So what happens next?
The Bulls Tuesday in losing the opening round playoff series to the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 concluded what generally was a successful season with a second straight 41-41 record and first round playoff elimination. Yes, even with another first round out. This was to be the appetizer.
