The Bulls finally had their full roster for Sunday’s game against the Knicks in New York. Fat lot of good it did them.
Their offense looked worse than ever and their help defense was a joke. I mean, by the end of the first quarter, I wanted to stop...

Blow up this Bulls thing right now.
Or at least take it apart piece by piece the way Derrick Rose’s body and greatness are being removed.
Rose underwent another knee surgery Monday. This one repaired the medial meniscus in his right knee. The...

Tom Thibodeau said the Bulls have to play to their strengths, and I’m wondering, do they have any left?
After that miserable Game 2 of the Bulls’ playoff series with Philadelphia, Luol Deng repeatedly said “Derrick’s not here,&...

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...

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...

So, I’m reading that Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer will have to put up another combined game of 40-plus points and 20-plus rebounds if the Bulls are going to win Game 6 in Philadelphia on Thursday night to force a deciding game at home.

Dribbling around with the Bulls at the break . . .
I know the Bucks were missing Andrew Bogut -- gads, the Bucks are always missing Andrew Bogut -- but to give up a triple-double to Joakim Noah in three quarters is embarrassing even for a Milwaukee team....

The Bulls said the decision to return from ACL surgery on his left knee is up to Derrick Rose.
The team also said it wouldn’t pressure Rose to return.
But yet, the story the Bulls planted last week in an online report felt oily and appeared to...

Toe, back, groin, ankle and now foot -- that’s Derrick Rose’s starting five.
The Chicago Bulls’ only hope for a championship suffered another injury to another body part while playing another meaningless game. Fun, huh?
A lot of people...

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...

The Bulls couldn’t hit from the floor and couldn’t hit from the free-throw line. What else you got? Nerf basketball, anyone?
Derrick Rose was bad. Carlos Boozer was awful. Luol Deng was useless in the second half. Everybody else followed....
