Bulls fans really should skip (EDIT: Nerder)
 Oct 21, 2022
(EDIT to specify the "Nerder She Wrote" '22 EC preview) The Nerder 2022 Eastern Conference preview intentionally ignoring the Bulls? Oh well, the Bulls and their fanbase must be inconsequential to y'all. I guess Chicago listenership doesn't constitute much of the Athletic NBA's audience. (It's not like Bulls fandom is nationwide and takes over any away arena they play at. Oh wait....)
