The Bulls concluded the 2011-12 two-game preseason technically tied for the preseason championship at 2-0 with Tuesday’s more-impressive-than-the-final score 93-85 victory over Indiana.

Richard Hamilton made his Bulls debut convincingly with 13 points and six assists, running the fast break beautifully with Derrick Rose and hitting his only three point attempt. Rose, who is expected to join the Bulls in …

Richard “Rip” Hamilton concluded his first practice with the Bulls Thursday, then joined the team headed for Indianapolis for the opening of two preseason games before the Christmas Day opener in Los Angeles.

Hamilton, in a light and jovial mood after a three-hour practice, said he was thrilled to be joining what he considered a title contending team in the …

Perhaps the question for the Bulls should be whether Richard Hamilton will help them Rip through the Eastern Conference on the way to an NBA title or whether he’ll Rip up the fabric of a potential championship team.

The Bulls announced Wednesday night an agreement with the former Detroit Pistons All-Star known as Rip. Hamilton, who negotiated a buyout with …

The Bulls Friday finally opened training camp for the 2010-11 season, two months late because of the NBA labor dispute but still with the same questions hanging over the team as when it walked off the court in the United Center last spring after the conference finals loss to the Miami Heat.

Below is my pick-by-pick reaction to the 2011 NBA Draft as it unfolded live on June 23.

1. Cleveland: Kyrie Irving As expected. I still have my doubts, though not because I dislike Irving. The tactic, to me, was to pick Derrick Williams and get a point guard at 4, either Knight or Irving as Minnesota isn’t taking a point …

It sounds like one of those April Fool’s jokes.

You know, telling people there are two weeks left in the NBA season and with Joakim Noah out yet again, this time missing his 33rd game with a sprained ankle, with Carlos Boozer having a pair of such sprains himself and missing eight games to add to the 15 in …

Let’s get this straight. Wasn’t Thibodeau supposed to be the defensive guru?

But there the high scoring Bulls go again Tuesday, this time with a 114-81 thumping of the Atlanta Hawks. On the road in the second of a back to back no less against a fifth seeded, a playoff team. It was the Bulls second straight win by more …

FIBA, the world governing body for basketball, announced on Sunday that Great Britain’s men’s and women’s basketball teams will compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London after being granted automatic qualification.

Bulls forward and Great Britain national team member Luol Deng, via his Twitter account @LuolDeng9, reacted to the news that day, saying, “Got the great news we will …

It’s difficult to explain Derrick Rose. Which is a good thing, because there’s really never been a basketball player like him. And it was manifest Monday in the United Center during the Bulls 95-82 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Ronnie Brewer, the hustling guard, was trying to explain. And he was a good one given he delivered the pass of …

It’s nothing special anymore, Ben Gordon back in the United Center, one of the best shooting guards in franchise history.

“I have a lot of good memories here,” Gordon was saying before Monday’s game. “Even though the fans boo me now.”

Reporters probably miss Gordon as much as any former Bull given he’s always one of the most accessible, friendly …
