If you've wondered whether Chris Carter was the first HR champ to get nontendered...correct! ESPN Stats & Info says the only thing close is the 1974 White Sox selling Dick Allen to the Braves because he said he was going to retire. Then the Phillies talked him into unretiring.

A couple days after their worst loss of the year, the Bulls get their most important win of the season to date. This is the most complete I think I've ever seen Taj Gibson play. He was great throughout the night.

So often this season Jimmy Butler sets an early tone for the Bulls. Tonight, Taj Gibson has dominated early. He has 10 points already and is more confident offensively than he's ever been.
