This TimberBulls thing is really getting out of control.
Luol Deng became the latest member of the 2012 Bulls to join the Minnesota Timberwolves, agreeing to a one-year deal on Monday.
He joins a roster that's simply littered with former Bulls, beginning with head coach Tom Thibodeau. That list from the 2012 Bulls also includes Jimmy Butler, Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson, and it wouldn't surprise anyone if Joakim Noah eventually latches on if/when he's bought out by the New York Knicks.
There would be some serious irony if this Timberwolves team, which also features Karl-Anthony Towns, matched up against against LeBron James - who is now in the Western Conference for the first time in his career as a member of the Lakers - in the postseason. James ended Thibodeau's Bulls season three times.
