Madden franchise still hates Jay Cutler and the Bears — The player rating numbers have been leaked for weeks, but when Madden '17 hits the public on Tuesday, the continual disrespect for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler by the gaming franchise will be official. Cutler's overall ranking to start the season will be an 80.

No shortage of drama as NBA announces the regular-season schedule — Dwyane Wade isn't much into expectations. A new area code isn't about to change that. "There's no expectations right now,'' Wade said recently. "That's you guys' [the media] job to come up with what our record is going to be or what our shooting percentage is going to be.

Dwyane Wade says the Bulls offense will find a way to get it done — It will work. How? What it will exactly look like? The "three alphas'' couldn't say. But what Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo promised was that they would make it work. They have to make it work.

Gar Forman admits that outside criticism falls on deaf ears — It became evident at the end of last season that the Bulls front office is all but fireproof, and on Friday it was obvious that they are also an insulated group when it comes to criticism.

Dwyane Wade clears the air and calls it 'Jimmy Butler's team' — Jimmy Butler can't hide from it anymore. The two-time All-Star has spent the last few weeks downplaying the idea that the Bulls are his team now that Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah have changed addresses, even getting frustrated with the persistent questions on that topic on Thursday.

Diva? Jimmy Butler doesn't think he is, and doesn't care who does — Jimmy Butler isn't blinking. Whether it's in the face of his own front office talking about trading the two-time All-Star last month or the perception that the Bulls guard has turned diva in helping escort Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah out of town this offseason. Not a blink.

Wanting more shooters, Bulls make Isaiah Canaan signing official — The Bulls continued to all but finalize their fall camp roster, making the Isaiah Canaan signing official on Wednesday afternoon. The two-year deal was reported last week, but with most of the front office in Las Vegas for Summer League there was a delay in the process.

Bulls make it official and sign rookie Denzel Valentine — Plans change. No team knows that this summer like the Bulls. When they selected Denzel Valentine 14th overall in the June draft, the feeling right away was the combo guard/small forward was going to be penciled in as a starter. That's how highly they thought of the 6-foot-6 former Michigan State standout.

Bulls add to the frontcourt by signing draft pick Paul Zipser — Last week in Las Vegas, Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg reiterated that come fall camp, there "will be a lot of competition for spots.'' The team threw another name in the mix on Friday afternoon, announcing that they had signed forward Paul Zipser.

Bulls hope to help out outside shooting by signing Isaiah Canaan — Shooters wanted. The Bulls are hoping that Isaiah Canaan can help fill that vacancy. According to a league source, it was confirmed that the Bulls have reached a two-year agreement with the 25-year-old guard, hoping the volume shooter can give them a backcourt threat from the outside.

Relax Chicago, the Bulls will get as far as they were going to get with Rose. Still a team that can get to the ECF.

Just read Deadspin. Very well done. A blog site built on satire doesn't get satire. Maybe I can e-mail a QB penis picture into them now.
