Perhaps it will work. After all, the Bulls might have the NBA’s best combination of overall team depth and interior defensive strength. So maybe in this unusual season of 66 games in 124 days, they can endure longer.

So far, it’s been remarkably effective with Monday’s 92-68 victory over the Detroit Pistons. The Bulls are 8-2 and in their three …

It was the kind of night Wednesday in Detroit for the Bulls to keep it simple: Get a win over a non-playoff team and get out healthy.

Well, they accomplished the winning part. And hopefully the other, though there’s always breath to hold and prayers to say when it is Derrick Rose heading for X-rays.

The Bulls rather easily, never …

The NBA generally tries to set the premier Christmas Day game matchups as possible Finals previews. So, predictably, the Miami Heat play the defending champion Dallas Mavericks and the Bulls play the Los Angeles Lakers.

And how delicious would that encore be once again after 20 years when the Bulls won their first NBA championship in Los Angeles in 1991.…

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.

Can the Bulls acquire more shooting, just a …

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 …
