NBA balloting for the All-Star team started Thursday, and for just the second time in franchise history it would appear the Bulls have a chance to have three All-Stars.

It’s happened just once in franchise history and it didn’t involve Michael Jordan. It was the 1993-94 season after Jordan’s first retirement when Scottie Pippen, B.J. Armstrong and Horace Grant made …

Get Derrick Rose going more aggressively. Check.

“That’s my game (being aggressive),” Rose said Wednesday after he led the Bulls with 23 points in a second half domination win over the Brooklyn Nets 105-80. “They gave me a lot of open shots tonight, but (I was also) driving and getting guys (shots); being in condition to take those shots is …

There was a lot of disappointment to go around for the Bulls Saturday in their 112-102 loss to the Golden State Warriors. There was the home record falling to 2-5 and 12-8 on the season, yielding more than 100 points for the sixth time in the last nine games and a career high for Draymond Green with 31 points and …

This Bulls team that rebounded Wednesday with a tough 102-95 victory over the Charlotte Hornets is much decorated and accomplished. Derrick Rose is a former league Most Valuable Player; Joakim Noah is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year and first team all-NBA center; Jimmy Butler is an all-league defender and Wednesday was named the league’s first Player of the …

If it’s Charlotte, it must be Wednesday. Short night for the Bulls players arriving in Charlotte about 3 a.m. Wednesday after the double overtime loss to the Mavs Tuesday. No beds in the locker room for pregame naps, though Doug McDermott remained out with his minor knee problem and Taj Gibson would be missing his sixth consecutive game with his …

The final result Tuesday, a 132-129 Dallas Mavericks double overtime win over the Bulls, wasn’t exactly the presentation the Bulls or the United Center fans preferred. But on a cold early winter’s evening in a season bound for perhaps somewhere, this game was a gift that wasn’t about to let anyone sleep.

It had aces, like Derrick Rose’s banked in …

One test for Derrick Rose will be Wednesday in Charlotte, the first back to back since Rose left at halftime in the second of the back to back in Denver last week. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said before Tuesday’s game, predictably, he was only concerned about what might occur in the next few moments. But Thibodeau said he was pleased …

Jimmy Butler’s story is well known, homeless at 13, junior college, Marquette taking a chance on a kid no one wanted, bottom of the first round, 30th, in 2011, then barely playing for almost two years. And then last summer, back to his beloved Texas with a training routine that may now become the rage of kids everywhere, or, at …

The Bulls got some wonderful individual performances Friday in a big time comeback victory over the Boston Celtics, 109-102 that gave them a 10-6 record and 3-3 on the long, circus road trip. It closes Sunday in Brooklyn.

Jimmy Butler led with 22 points, including six points in a late fourth quarter stretch when he was the only Bull to …

It’s still the first month of the NBA season, so no time to panic about Derrick Rose sitting out the second half of the 114-109 Bulls loss to the Denver Nuggets Tuesday; no great concern about the loss that dropped the Bulls to 9-6 and 2-3 on this long road trip.

Better to celebrate perhaps the birth of a star, …
