How about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 21st at home against the Lakers? Nah, too early.

What about the Heat’s first trip into the United Center right after the All-Star break February 21? Probably still too soon.

OK, what about Derrick Rose playing his first game of the 2012-13 season at home Saturday, March 2 against the Brooklyn …

Well, maybe it doesn’t look that bad for the Bulls in the 2012-13 season, after all.

It’s not good, mind you, at least as long as Derrick Rose is recovering from knee surgery, which should be at least half the season. You lose the league MVP or your star and you get worse.

There are no shortcuts: Bulls go from …

The Bulls will not match the restricted free agent offer to Omer Asik, allowing Asik to join the Houston Rockets.

“We have decided not to match Houston’s offer sheet for restricted free agent Omer Asik,” Bulls general manager Gar Forman said Tuesday morning. “It was a difficult decision because Omer did a nice job for us. Matching the offer for …

Maybe Luol Deng should go ahead and have that wrist surgery. Yes, it’s just NBA Summer League. But Bulls second-year small forward Jimmy Butler showed in Tuesday’s 79-74 opening loss to the Boston Celtics in Las Vegas he may be ready to take that big first step toward being an NBA producer.

“The coaches tell me I have to stay …

In the end for the Bulls Thursday and for the 2011-12 season, it was a game they weren’t supposed to win that they left shocked they lost.

Sort of the way this whole season went.

The Bulls had lost Derrick Rose, were still without Joakim Noah, had Taj Gibson playing through a sprained ankle, saw Luol Deng leave early in …

Maybe this star crossed Bulls season, played so much without its stars, could not have ended any other way Thursday than with the Bulls letting a three-point lead with 25.8 seconds left disintegrate in a maze of missed opportunities, questionable circumstances and numbing decisions.

The result was a stunning 79-78 Philadelphia 76ers win with Andre Iguodala, a 45 percent fourth …

It seems fashionable lately to not care much about the Bulls. Yes, they are trailing the Philadelphia 76ers just 3-2 in the opening playoff series with Game 6 in Philadelphia Thursday (6:00 p.m. CT | CSN & NBA TV | ESPN 1000 AM).

But the notion is without Derrick Rose, gone for the playoffs with a torn ACL and Joakim …

So after all that–losing Derrick Rose to that catastrophic knee injury in Game 1, losing Joakim Noah to that horrendous sprained ankle in Game 3, and then with Taj Gibson limping to the locker room Tuesday in Game 5 with his own sprained ankle, after the team filing a missing persons report on Richard Hamilton, after it appeared the Bulls …

This season mostly has been one beautiful view for the Bulls with the league’s best record and confidence they could reach the top of the NBA mountain. Now, one more bad step backward and it’s all over. Yes, the Bulls have found themselves on the edge of the NBA playoff cliff with nowhere else to go.

It’s either all the …

May 5

How could this happen?

How after a second straight Bulls best record in the NBA could first Derrick Rose go out in the first game of the playoffs, and Joakim Noah, certainly for the rest of this series with the Philadelphia 76ers, in the third game?

So the Bulls, the No. 1 seeded team going into the playoffs, suddenly are …
