I’m with Tom Thibodeau on this one.
I’d have kept Derrick Rose in the game, too.
I expect a lot of screaming about the oft-injured MVP playing late enough into a game that he would be forced to leave injured. I expect Thibodeau to get...

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....

Have the Bulls stopped listening to Tom Thibodeau?
It’s one thing to lose to the Heat and Thunder when you’re playing without Derrick Rose, but losing at home to Cleveland makes this 4-8 February seem like a death spiral.
The loss to the...

I think we can understand why John Paxson jumped Vinny Del Negro a couple years ago.
Paxson didn’t like the way the Del Negro was playing Joakim Noah after his injury. The Bulls’ inadequate basketball honcho was worried that the Bulls’...

The Bulls without Derrick Rose have become mostly unwatchable.
It’s hard to care about this team without their only hope for an NBA title. It’s harder still to sit through it.
I’m not blaming the remaining Bulls players. Bless their...

David Stern owes Jeremy Lin. Same goes for Mike D’Antoni. The Knicks point guard is saving the NBA Commissioner’s season and his coach’s job.
Lin might be doing it only for the moment, but man, what a moment.
It’s not just that...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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,&...
