So what happens next?

The Bulls Tuesday in losing the opening round playoff series to the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 concluded what generally was a successful season with a second straight 41-41 record and first round playoff elimination. Yes, even with another first round out. This was to be the appetizer.

But given injuries that cost Joakim Noah 18 games and …

Derrick Rose had just made one of those plays in the Game 1 loss to the Cavaliers Saturday, a double move, slipping the trap on top, driving into the lane, changing direction, getting banged again by Shaquille O’Neal, who got credit for a block.

Rose paused and bent a bit, as if saying to himself, “What do I have to …

I remember one time asking the late Cotton Fitzsimmons, the garrulous and popular longtime coach of the Suns, Hawks, Spurs and Kings, what he’d do when one of his teams had one of those nights like the Bulls did Saturday in losing 100-90 to the Indiana Pacers.

When from the opening tip they had virtually no chance of winning the …

The Bulls have been good, winning a fifth consecutive road game Friday in New Orleans thanks to 26 points from Luol Deng, 18 points from Derrick Rose and 13 points and 18 rebounds from Joakim Noah.

And they’ve also been lucky, the Hornets with the game effectively won throwing the ball away with seven seconds to go. That enabled the …

The newest Bull, Devin Brown, is ready, willing and, he believes, able, but it may be a bit more time until he’s a regular for the Bulls.

Brown joined the team in Oklahoma City Wednesday. He attended morning shootaround, but wasn’t able to participate because the final paperwork on the trade hadn’t cleared the league office yet.

Brown, who was …

The Bulls got a nice surprise before the game when Joakim Noah decided he could play after a brief pregame workout.

Then they got an ugly surprise when the Spurs jumped out to an 11-2 lead that left the Bulls reeling into a timeout. But Noah seemed to be running reasonably well and stayed in until there was 4:16 left …

I caught up with Aaron Gray Monday afternoon on his last day with the Bulls. He seemed happy.

“It will be a great thing,” said Gray.

Not that he was mad at the Bulls, but the third year center believes he’ll get a better chance to play now that he’s headed to the New Orleans Hornets for shooting guard Devin …

The Aaron Gray Era came to an abrupt end on Monday, when the Bulls dealt the third-year center to the New Orleans Hornets for guard Devin Brown. Brown will make his Bulls debut on Wednesday night at Oklahoma City.

Brown, 31, brings averages of 9.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 24.8 minutes per game to …

We know Vinny Del Negro is no huge fan of the end of his bench, but he may have to do some introductions when the Bulls play the San Antonio Spurs Monday.

Hello, Aaron Gray, Jannero Pargo, you down there?

It seems doubtful Joakim Noah, suffering with plantar fasciitis, will play. Plus, Derrick Rose left Monday’s shootaround early because of …

The Bulls reach the halfway mark in the 2009-10 season Friday in Phoenix with Game 41 and an 18-22 record, the same as last season after 40 games and headed in the same direction as the Bulls would lose their next five last season to fall to a season low of 18-27

Help was on the way, however unknown at …
