  • Derrick Rose we used to know would make tonight 'The Return'

    Derrick Rose we used to know would make tonight 'The Return'
    Greatness comes to the United Center on Wednesday night. LeBron James will be in concert. He will be backed by the Miami Heat symphony. The Heat are the reigning champions, they own a remarkable 27-game winning streak and James is the MVP, it’s...
  • Before you blame it all on Thibodeau...

    Before you blame it all on Thibodeau...
    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...
  • Spurs' JV team exposes joke that is Eastern Conference

    Spurs' JV team exposes joke that is Eastern Conference
    The Choice (and remember, death is not an option): The NBA’s regular season or the NBA’s Eastern Conference? Except for Miami, of course. The Heat are so good they should be in the West. The rest of the East is the junior varsity. And that...

    Rob Riggle's advice for ESPYs host Drake
    Rob Riggle doesn’t want Drake to make the same mistake he made when the “Started From The Bottom” rapper hosts the 2014 ESPYs Wednesday at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Riggle – known for his roles in “Step Brothers&...
  • Uh-oh: LeBron chooses the Bulls' division

    Uh-oh: LeBron chooses the Bulls' division
    Bad enough that the Bulls couldn’t get past LeBron James in the Eastern Conference. Now they won’t get past him in the Central Division, either. Beep, beep, drive home safely. James made his choice Friday and made his announcement far...
  • Free agency a rerun for the Bulls

    It was about a week before free agency opened that Carmelo Anthony told the Knicks he would opt out of his contract, and I wrote we might be seeing the earliest the Bulls had ever been used in a contract negotiation. And now, with Anthony returning to...
  • From excruciating to ecstasy

    From excruciating to ecstasy
    Game 5 was looking like a killer. With a chance to eliminate the defending champion Kings and advance to the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday, the Blackhawks took home ice the way you’d dream, scoring two goals before Los Angeles managed a shot....
  • Review: Lady Gaga's twisted take on fame at United Center

    Review: Lady Gaga's twisted take on fame at United Center
    There was a bearded nun and 6-foot-plus drag queen in hot pants and stacked heels. There were bunny ears, pig noses, military officers caps and a dominatrix in fishnets and leather. Glitter? Check. Tutus? Check. Tie-dye boas? Check. Christmas-light...
  • Have a seat for rest of season, Derrick

    Have a seat for rest of season, Derrick
    If Derrick Rose is fine with missing the rest of the season, then so am I. In fact, I’d declare him done right now. Look, the Chicago Bulls aren’t winning anything this season even if Rose does make it back from surgery on his left knee. I...
  • Building the perfect Chicago hot dog

    Building the perfect Chicago hot dog
    Of all the regional foods out there, the one that's mystified me the most is the hot dog. Yes, hot dogs have deep roots in Chicago. A version was served during the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition; they were popularized on countless street carts...

     Blackhawks assure future in present
    With due respect to Carmelo Anthony, his was not the signature a winter tenant of the United Center simply had to have to make this Chicago sports summer complete. Whereas the Bulls can find a way to stay competitive in the Eastern Conference without...
