E’Twaun Moore has got to be some kind of super hero, at least the way he played Wednesday in the Bulls 107-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

There’s a famous book about an alleged patient who had multiple personalities, sometimes self assured, assertive and successful and then the next day listless to the point of being fatigued, anxious and distracted.
