Jim Calhoun, who took UConn from just another basketball program to one of the best in the country, seemingly against all odds, officially announced his retirement Thursday.
"I always said that I would know when it was time, whenever that might be," said...

Derrick Rose returned, and everything was right in the Chicago Bulls’ world.
Well, right enough, anyway.
Rose looked out of rhythm early after missing the previous five games because of problems brought on by an earlier toe injury....

As fun as the first half of the compressed NBA season has been for the Bulls, nothing on the court surpassed the significance of Derrick Rose signing a $94 million contract extension.
To Rose, the preseason moment represented the fulfillment of a son's...

After reaching all those dizzying heights and unfurling countless acrobatic moves in his first three spectacular seasons, Derrick Rose's fourth ended with an awful image.
A jump stop. A clutch of his left knee as he rose two feet into the air. A...

Take the observational layup and agree with the Chicago consensus that coach Tom Thibodeau stubbornly sticking with his starters Monday night in a game in which the Bulls blew a 27-point lead reinforces how little he values his reserves.
