Bill Wennington said the players from the 1995-96 Bulls team that set a record with 72 wins don’t sit around and wait to drink Champagne once it’s clear the record will stand another year.

Heck, he said he didn’t even know Miami Dolphins runner Mercury Morris made that an annual, infamous ritual to mark the continuation of the record for …

They have been three amigos, even if they don’t exactly spend all their time together. They have been good, bad and ugly on occasion, but hardly stooges. They have become the Bulls Big Three, the current version of the team’s Three Headed Monster: Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Carlos Boozer.

It may be the offseason for the Chicago Bulls, but that hasn’t stopped numerous prominent members of the organization from showing up at the United Center on game nights.

From former and current players to coaches and executive staff, several with Bulls ties have come to support their neighbors across the hall, the Chicago Blackhawks, as they make a run …

There’s no complaining this season — or shouldn’t be — about the annual November road trip starting in Phoenix Wednesday. The Bulls play just four games in the Western Conference over eight days before a final road game in Milwaukee Nov. 24.

I assume Frank Sinatra, the great singer from New Jersey, is rolling around in his grave after that one.

No, the Knicks and Celtics are not a rivalry, as the Knicks wanted to make it a week ago or so when they played Boston and Paul Pierce laughed about it. The Bulls and Knicks, yes, that’s a rivalry.
