Derrick Rose is coming back to play his first real game in 18 months.
But he is not bringing another superstar with him. Drive home safely, Chicago.
Rose has looked terrific in exhibition games, attacking the basket as fearlessly as we remember and...

I have received several angry emails from people who don’t particularly care for the “We’re Not Going To Tank’’ Bandwagon that I’ve organized as I encourage the Bulls to drive toward the draft lottery.

The Miami Heat returned to AmericanAirlines Arena on Wednesday night seemingly in first place in the NBA in hashtags.
In the wake of a turbulent July were born #HeatLifer and #HeatNation. Even Pat Riley, who has a Twitter account that does not...

Is Carlos Boozer so weak that he can’t come up with a good game after a bad start?
In the first half of Game 3 of the Bulls’ playoff series against the Pacers, Boozer managed only two points, same as the number of fouls he committed.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau probably will hammer his team for allowing 73 points. Heck, he’d hammer his players for allowing two.

This was a supernova in short pants.
This was downright Jordanesque.
Drives, floaters, dunks, threes – Derrick Rose gave the Hawks every part of the video game.
Derrick Rose gave everyone an MVP performance....

At times, I don’t know how either of these teams could win a game, much less a playoff series.
The Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers offered a painful exhibition of bad shots, bad shot selection, bad defense and bad ball handling.
But someone had to...

Derrick Rose, fourth quarter. Fourth quarter, Derrick Rose. Why don’t you two kids get reintroduced.
Should Rose get outplayed by Mike Miller in the fourth quarter? I mean, really.
Rose had to be the best player in Game 4. Didn’t happen. Not...

Now the Bulls know what great looks like when great is required.
The Bulls put together a great regular season. They played hard every game. They played good or great a majority of those nights.
But great matters in the playoffs.
Great matters in the...

Many observers feared sloppy play early in a lockout-shortened NBA season, and they got it in Bulls-Lakers.
Thing is, the Bulls weren’t supposed to be one of those teams. They had almost everybody returning, from the MVP to the “Coach of...

Now that’s the way to tank a season.
Beep, beep, make way for the Bulls’ “We’re Not Going to Tank’’ bandwagon as it screams down the lottery express lanes.
The Bulls traded the regularly injured Luol Deng, one of...
