They’d been talking about it for a few weeks, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah, though more Noah, as they bounced around the United States, from Brooklyn to Atlanta to Denver, Utah and Boston.
They were headed to the All-Star game together, the Bulls teammates who’d gone through so much together the last six years and who seemed like such unlikely …

You don’t figure much that happens in the first three to five minutes of an NBA game is going to matter all that much or be worth repeating. It’s supposedly that last five minutes that matters.
And in defeating the Boston Celtics Tuesday 100-89, the Bulls weren’t even leading in the first five minutes.
They basically blew open the game …

Now, no one is likely to argue with Joakim Noah if he still insists “Cleveland sucks.”
Of course, that was one of the highlights of last season’s first round playoff series, and now with LeBron James gone, the Cavs, well, are not very good.
The Bulls face them Wednesday with the Cavs back from Philadelphia with another blowout loss, now …

So who said he can’t make the big one?
Derrick Rose continued to add pages to his scrapbook of thrills Saturday with a straight away 25-footer as the regulation buzzer was sounding to save the Bulls from a third consecutive defeat.

It’s now official. Derrick Rose is unguardable.
We kind of thought so before. But when Rose also makes the three-pointer, as he did three times in the fourth quarter Tuesday when he scored 17 of his 33 points in the Bulls’ 95-92 win over the Houston Rockets, it’s time to git along little doggies.
How ’bout them Bullies, now 6-3 …

Day 1 of the Bulls longest trip of the season. So it’s a morning shootaround at the arena, some lunch back at the hotel and then back to the arena for the 7:30 game.
There are two buses to the arena with some of the players coming to shoot early. Luol Deng and Brian Scalabrine were on the floor about …

Denver Nuggets coach George Karl put an interesting spin on the Carlos Boozer injury that has sidelined the Bulls’ prize free agent acquisition for what will likely be the first two months of the season.

Well, I was excited about the beginning of the Bulls 2010-11 season. Until, at least, I saw the full schedule released by the NBA Tuesday.
Yes, yes, I know. Everyone has to play 82 games, though not Shaq, for sure. And everyone plays the same amount at home and on the road.
But this schedule will get you to be …

The Bulls late Thursday filled out their front court rotation by agreeing to a one year deal with veteran center/forward Kurt Thomas, NBA sources confirmed.
Thomas joins Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, Taj Gibson and Omer Asik in what should be a solid five-man interior rotation.
Thomas agreed to a deal for slightly more than the veterans’ minimum, which means the …
