A Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Curse?

Three games deep into the Chicago Bulls' infamous "Circus Trip" and we already know one thing: the Bulls are who we thought they were. Sure, Dennis Green's comments were in regards to the Windy City's lowly Chicago Bears team, but his words perfectly exemplify the Bulls' road trip, as well as season, so far.

After starting the trip with a 101-87 victory of the Sacramento Kings, who were without leading-scorer Kevin Martin and former Bull Andres Nocioni, the Bulls traveled to Los Angeles and Denver in hopes of having the same result. Needless to say, the "desperately in need of a low-post scorer, and scorer in general" Bulls squad came back down to earth after dropping a 108-93 and 112-93 contest to the Lakers and Nuggets, respectively.

Following the back-to-back blowout losses, Bulls head coach Vinny Del Negro finally had something to say.

"You have to continue to bring the effort, energy and professionalism," he told the Chicago Tribune. "And I didn't think we did that in the second half. That's what is most disappointing."

I know Vinny is new in town, but someone should really inform him about the team's "Circus Trip" record this decade, which currently stands at 9-56. While that's no excuse for a Bulls team struggling to put the ball into the basket, it shouldn't come as a surprise.

As often as he was exposed on the defensive end, Ben Gordon knew how to score. It's just a shame his talent didn't rub off on any of the players before he fled to Detroit.
