Luol Deng always has been a man, a United Nations Refuge Humanitarian of the Year award winner, the NBA’s Sportsmanship award winner, an ICON role model award from a major entertainment publication and various community service commendations.

Now Deng has to be, “the Man,” that much identified, if somewhat of a contradictory designation in a team sport.

“It’s something I’ve …

It hasn’t necessarily been artistic or aesthetic, and it’s raised questions and concerns. But the Bulls reach the first marker in their season long NBA marathon in competitive position after Monday’s 86-81 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.

“I will take it,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. “I told our guys that it got choppy out there.”

That’s not my metaphor. …

It may not be the best of times for the Bulls Saturday in Brooklyn, but Game 7’s are the best of times in sport. No more time to improve, no backs to the wall or it being a long season or another game. You can get rid of the worst of times quickly.

It reflects the best—or perhaps worst—in sports …

Carmelo Anthony is one of the elite players in the NBA, a top contender for league Most Valuable Player and one of the NBA’s highest paid players at almost $20 million annually. J.R. Smith is one of the league’s top athletes, a sometimes erratic personality who is considered a strong candidate to be the league’s top sixth man.

If this Bulls/Detroit Pistons series of recent years becomes a TV show, perhaps they can call it “Eighteen is Enough” as the Pistons Sunday finally ended the Bulls 18-game winning streak with a mostly unremarkable 99-85 victory.

And if this Bulls regular season should get TV treatment, perhaps it becomes “Thirteen is Enough,” which is the number of different starting …

The Bulls lost to that team? No, really, that Charlotte team? At home? By double figures? The Charlotte team whose lottery pick in the Bulls’ Friday 105-75 rout has more names than he had field goals? Whose sixth man shot zero for nine and whose perimeter shooting stretch four was one of 12? That Charlotte team beat the Bulls in …

One time can be a fluke, not that it was for Luol Deng when the Eastern Conference coaches sent Deng to his first NBA All-Star Game last year. But not twice; twice selected you are a star.

So when Deng takes the court Sunday in Houston for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, he will be one of the senior guys …

It’s not exactly a crisis. Actually, it’s a pretty good thing for the Bulls as they ponder their 93-85 victory Monday over the Charlotte Bobcats, their seventh win in the last nine, to go to 27-17. But with the emergence of second year man Jimmy Butler, who led the Bulls in scoring off the bench with a career high 19 …

Perhaps it was appropriate the Bulls closed the 2012 calendar year with a 91-81 loss to arguably one of the worst teams in the history of the NBA, the Charlotte Bobcats, who set a record for poorest ever winning percentage last season and were working on an 18-game losing streak coming into Monday’s New Year’s Eve game.

“We just have …

Who says the Bulls couldn’t finish third in the Eastern Conference without Derrick Rose? Well, they just did. Oh, right. Preseason. But the Bulls finished a good one for them with a 97-90 victory over the Central Division favored Indiana Pacers at the University of Notre Dame Friday night.

“It was great to play a really good team,” said Carlos …
