While the Chicago sports scene is overly excited about the recent Blackhawks win, there are many who are already looking to next NBA season now that the 2013 season is over, to see how the Chicago Bulls will perform. While the Bulls are making headlines after letting their assistant coach Adams go, they are also getting a great deal of attention about their recent draft picks. The Bulls took Tony Snell is the first round of the NBA draft, using their 28th pick to select the New Mexico wing. The group also chose the 49th pick to choose Erik Murphy in the second round. Both new additions are big shooters that are expected to add to the team and help them finally get the shooting game they have been looking for.

While many Chicago fans are looking both forward and back at the past and upcoming seasons of their favorite teams, most fans are focused on the only Chicago team still in season; the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs have been struggling to get a better performance from their bullpen, after losing the last 16 out of 32 games. It seems as though with better pitching the Cubs could turn their season around before they head into the All Star break. After the Cubs reliever James Russell began his season with 17 sequential scoreless outings, however has struggled lately. This pitching issue on top of the injury of Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney has the Cubs looking to make some major changes in their line up so they can go into the second half of the season prepared for a long run that will take them into World Series playoff territory or NOT..
