Not that long ago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau stood at a podium after a rare lousy performance and implored players in his own inimitable way.
"Do. Your. Job.'' Thibodeau barked in his baritone voice April 16 after the Bulls lost at home to the Wizards....

From now on, whenever someone wants to dispute the connection between confidence and winning in pro sports, I will offer the example of the 2012 Bulls, suddenly reduced to slumped shoulders and brittle spines.
Monday at the Berto Center convinced me...

With the Bulls on the brink of elimination, Richard Hamilton said they have to make it personal, and I’m wondering, why didn’t that start after Game 2?
The Bulls got torched in that second half the last time they played in the United Center....

Thank you, Dwyane Wade. It’s good therapy for America that your over-celebrating Heat have nothing but regret and embarrassment today.
A country shot off fireworks to mark the death spiral of an arrogant bunch of guys who shot off their mouths...

Q: All the “experts” say the teams with fewest roster changes (system familiarity) will benefit most from the shortened season. Isn't this one more reason to keep Mike Miller, who can play three positions? — Jack. A: Are these the...

Jason Richardson has never played in the NBA Finals, and now on the South side of 30, he realizes the team that signs him in free agency could be the last team he ever plays for. That’s why he recently said playing for a championship contender is...

A year ago, one of the NBA’s best teams signed J.J. Redick to be its starting shooting guard. The Chicago Bulls offered Redick a 3-year, $19 million offer sheet they assumed was too expensive for the Orlando Magic to match. The Magic, of course,...
