Derrick Rose said he’s certain he’s returning to the Bulls and will be as good as ever, that he’ll be an attacking, athletic player again, though it might not be this season since Rose admitted he’s still not able to dunk a basketball like he needs to in a game.

Rose talked to Chicago reporters in the Bulls locker room …

Just about everyone in America, it seems, has a torn ACL. Well, a lot of guards in the NBA. Derrick Rose, obviously, for the Bulls, and now Rajon Rondo and Leandro Barbosa for the Celtics.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers before Wednesday’s game was talking about the NBA guards’ greatest fear these days—Iman Shumpert, Ricky Rubio and Eric Maynor also in …

The Bulls took a look in the NBA mirror Monday at the United Center and didn’t like much what they saw in a 103-89 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Really, c’mon now. This is getting ridiculous. And I better not hear anyone in the NBA complain about the second of a back-to-back on the road ever again.

In fact, the Bulls’ relentless 93-76 victory over the Atlanta Hawks Saturday could be one of those seminal moments in NBA history, like the first morning shootaround.

It would have been a heck of a victory.

It’s one thing to have a strong bench as the Bulls have had the past few years. It’s another to make them your starters and go to guys in order to carry you against one of the top teams in the conference, which the Bulls tried to do Friday in Brooklyn …

The Bulls may be taking this first trip ever to play an NBA game in Brooklyn, which rests in the shadow on Manhattan and the Knicks, a bit too seriously.

They’re fielding their second team, though it’s difficult to tell at times as the Bulls for three seasons now have had remarkable success with reserves moving into the starting lineup.…
