Derrick Rose is having surgery again.

Call it the six most feared words for Rose, the Bulls, their fans and the NBA community.

The Bulls’ media release Tuesday night arrived, once again with stunning disappointment and despair:

“Derrick Rose reported today with right knee pain. An exam and subsequent MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear of the right knee.

Surgery …

It was no surprise one of the early wire service reports Monday after the Bulls 87-71 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks began, “Ian Snell scored 20 points, Nikola Mirotic had 16 points and a career high 14 rebounds, and the surging Chicago Bulls…”

I know, I know. Who is that guy?

It couldn’t be the Tony Snell we know, timidly …

The Bulls saw the Suns Saturday night in the United Center. The question is with a 112-107 victory have the Bulls started to see the light.

“I look at the standings,” said Pau Gasol, who led the Bulls with 22 points and 14 rebounds and hit the effective clincher, a running half hook for a four-point lead with 31 seconds …

You’ve heard the questions and the lament as Taj Gibson dropped balls, wasn’t always able to finish at the rim, played well, but, well, not as well as expected. His scoring well down. Must be pouting because he’s not starting, went one theory. Upset with trade rumors went another. Jealous of contracts other players are getting.

There was some very good news for the Bulls Friday in their 100-91 loss to the Detroit Pistons, their 10th loss this season to a sub.-500 team with eight of them to teams at least 10 games below. 500.

None of those teams will be in the playoffs.

Yes, you better laugh after this one. Or you’ll cry.

The Bulls, …

The Bulls remained resolute as the NBA trading deadline passed 2 p.m. Thursday. And with good reason. The Bulls don’t really have any major holes to fill and have not even effectively used all the players they could, like Tony Snell and Doug McDermott. So there wasn’t much need for change.

Actually, few of the teams in the league with …

Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler Sunday were hardly the main attractions in the annual mid season circus and skills competition the NBA calls its All-Star game.

Amidst a near record 41 points for MVP winner Russell Westbrook in the Western Conference’s 163-158 bowling score event that was an alltime record for points, there were the usual assortment of alley oop …

The 2015 NBA All-Star game Sunday in New York City brings with it some of the best visual delights the game can offer with the defending league MVPs in LeBron James and Kevin Durant, the special shooting and panache of Stephen Curry and James Harden and the veteran savvy of Tim Duncan and Chris Paul.

But there are only two …

Perhaps there never would have been a Bulls dynasty without Rod Thorn. After all, the longtime NBA executive was running the Bulls when the team drafted Michael Jordan.

Or maybe things would have been even better if during Thorn’s six years as Bulls general manager the Bulls hadn’t messed up chances to draft Magic Johnson, Maurice Cheeks and Sidney Moncrief …

It was another tough night for American exceptionalism Friday in Brooklyn.

A team of first and second year NBA international players, including Bulls rookie Nikola Mirotic with a game high four three pointers, defeated a team of similar U.S. players 121-112 in the annual All-Star weekend rookies and sophomores game, now known as Rising Stars.

“I was trying to play …
