You hate that this is happening to the seemingly decent kids playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, who lost their 22nd consecutive game Wednesday, this time 102-94 to the Bulls.
This 76ers team, which did compete hard, is the basketball version of a train wreck in the making. You can’t bear to look as the crash is coming and you weep …

The Bulls were right there, trailing the powerful Oklahoma City Thunder by a point with 10 minutes left.
“I thought we were in a good situation,” said Taj Gibson, who led the Bulls with 16 points in their 97-85 loss to Oklahoma City. “It was one of those games you want to take back. It was just one of those …

Tough week? Who says it was a tough week for these Bulls? No stinkin’ tough week for these Bulls and Joakim Noah in a performance Saturday worth its weight in gold.
The heck week concluded with a 94-87 victory over the Sacramento Kings. And this is what Joakim Noah, after 23 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, five blocks and three …

It hasn’t been a perfect week for the Bulls, though on national ABC Sunday Joakim Noah’s play overshadowed that of LeBron James in a Bulls overtime win. And on national TNT Thursday, Noah missed a triple-double by one assist in the 111-87 victory over the Houston Rockets and an uninspiring Dwight Howard.
Mike Dunleavy came back from a 10-stitch …

These are some things I was thinking about during Tuesday’s Bulls/Spurs game: If a mime is arrested, are they told they have the right to start speaking?

Joakim Noah isn’t the best player in the NBA. We know that. Nobody is saying he is. But what exactly is a Most Valuable Player? Someone whose passion, enthusiasm and model inspires an entire team, if not a city? Someone whose will, desire and determination helps a team become more than it is supposed to be and perhaps eventually as …

Before Friday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau went over the Grizzlies plays, as he always does, and his team’s priorities.

Joakim Noah in Wednesday’s 105-94 victory over the Detroit Pistons had his second triple-double this week and third of the season, more than LeBron James and Kevin Durant combined.

There are worse days. After all, you could be driving behind a police car and your horn gets stuck. Someone asks you if that’s your car sitting on concrete blocks. You say you’ve got a pair of black and brown shoes at home just like the ones you are wearing.
You get behind the Brooklyn Nets by 14 points eight …

Talk about your New York minute.
It’s been said as the time between the light turning green and a New Yorker blowing the car horn. It’s lately been the time between when an NBA game starts and the Knicks contemplating the postgame meal.
It was the time Sunday in the Bulls’ eventual 109-90 victory that Joakim Noah had three assists …
