These crippled Bulls were not going to beat the Heat.
The decomposing depth of a team built on depth was not going to win the NBA title.
In fact, it didn’t look as if the Bulls even cared to make tipoff for one last game.
The Bulls came out...

And so it ends. No more basketball. No more games. No more 2013 Chicago Bulls.
The season started with fans talking about who wasn't there. It ended with fans talking about who was. It started with hope for The Return. It ended with the return of hope....

The crowd arrived late. The Bulls didn’t arrive at all. Ba-bum-cha!
Each seat in the United Center held a poster proclaiming “Next Man Up.’’ There just weren’t enough men -- or women or children -- to hold them up.

The Bulls were in an almost-must-win situation against Miami on Monday at the United Center. Win, and they turn it into a best-of-three series. Lose, and they're practically sunk with Game 5 on Wednesday in Miami.
Well, it was the second scenario that...

Is Dwyane Wade still whining to the refs from Game 1 or has he launched an early crybaby offensive for Game 2?
I tweeted that question Tuesday, and the most common response was any combination of “Yes,’’ “Both,’’...

May 4, 2013: the day the Chicago Bulls made history.
That's a remarkable statement for a franchise with six NBA championships, six NBA MVP awards, four All-Star MVPs and a boatload of All-Stars, and so on.
But watching the Bulls gut out a Game 7...

In NBA playoff parlance, we call this a gift.
The beaten-up, struggling, Derrick-Rose-less Bulls get a first-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets, perhaps the dumbest team in the league.
The Bulls won three of the four games against the Nets...

ATLANTA — The pregame chatter centered on a swollen foot, an infected elbow and a sore hamstring.
But reflecting their hard-driving, no-excuses coach, the Bulls kept their focus Saturday night on points, rebounds and assists. And, of course,...

It never should’ve been that difficult, but the Bulls finally put away the dogbreath Charlotte Bobcats at home Monday night.
At least they didn’t lose, right? The Bulls dumped a game to those Charlotte chumps at home earlier this season, and...

Joakim Noah was taking one of those shots.
You know the one I’m talking about. It’s the one that opponents dare him to take. It’s that elbow-extended, alien-looking thing. It’s the one that we all treat like one of our golf...

I know there’s a point to this Bulls season that starts without Derrick Rose.
I’m just not sure what it is.
Nobody on the Bulls can be Rose, and nobody should try. The Bulls can’t win a title without Rose, nor can they do it with him...
