    Appreciating Deng amid ugliness of Rose-less Bulls

    LeBron gets Rose, Bulls get beat, story gets old
    Same old shift. Bulls-Miami. Close game. LeBron James now guarding Derrick Rose. Ballgame. Same old shift. Beep, beep, drive home angry, Bulls fans. You could argue that Rose choked against the Heat, and you’d have a good case. Rose missed 17 of...

  • Pretty good news in bad Bulls ending

    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...

    Excruciating and epic, maddening and miraculous
    Game 4 of Bulls-Nets should’ve been over early in the fourth quarter when the Nets had a 14-point lead with 3:45 to go. It never should’ve required overtime. Game 4 should’ve been over in the first overtime when Nate Robinson hit an...

    And it only gets uglier
    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,&...
  • Any chance Bulls' plan for Game 6 won't embarrass NBA?

    Any chance Bulls' plan for Game 6 won't embarrass NBA?
    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. Yes. Well....
  • Is Thibs' sky falling and are his players listening?

    Is Tom Thibodeau right about his team's unpreparedness or is he Chicken Little? Or is he nearing the end of his shelf life as Bulls coach? “The regular season will be here before we know it,’’ Thibodeau said, and not in a manner that...
  • Bulls' playoff plan: Wait till Nets turn stupid

    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...
