Talk about your New York minute.

It’s been said as the time between the light turning green and a New Yorker blowing the car horn. It’s lately been the time between when an NBA game starts and the Knicks contemplating the postgame meal.

It was the time Sunday in the Bulls’ eventual 109-90 victory that Joakim Noah had three assists …

One of the big reasons for the success and popularity of Charles Barkley is he’s such a good sport when he faces personal joking and kidding. Compared to say, Shaquille O’Neal, who seems always wanting to beat up someone. Big guys never can take a joke.

The TNT broadcast crew has a favorite gimmick for Barkley. They give Barkley five …

It was the highest ever scoring NBA All-Star Game, a 163-155 dunk-a-thon in New Orleans Sunday won by the Eastern Conference.

Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving was named MVP with 31 points and 14 assists, while Carmelo Anthony made a record eight three-pointers and scored 30 points as the East rallied from an 18-point third quarter deficit. Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin …

The NBA All-Star Game is not Joakim Noah’s kind of game.

But not for the reasons you may think.

The Bulls passionate center is not going to dunk backward on the fast break or throw one off the backboard to himself or throw a behind the back full court pass or step aside and let someone show off a bit. …

There is a secret to the Bulls’ success, however limited it still remains, and Joakim Noah gave it away Friday.

Joakim Noah is going back to the NBA All-Star Game again, and this time he may try to remember something about the game.

Not surprisingly, Noah said in a conference call with Chicago reporters after the All-Star reserve selection announcement Thursday, he couldn’t recall much about the last year’s game. He paused a bit and thought. No, still couldn’t.

Probably …

Joakim Noah is having the best season in his seven-year NBA career.

He’s averaging 11.7 points and a career-high 11.4 rebounds, one of 10 NBA players averaging a double-double. Plus, he’s averaging 14.4 points and 15 rebounds in 11 games in January.

If not for Kevin Durant, he’d be making a case for player of the month. He’s in the …

Bulls guard Derrick Rose’s selection for the 2014-16 USA Men’s National Team pool was the first step in what could be a two-year process.

But if all goes well, it could ultimately land him on the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team which will compete in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“I’m looking forward to getting back on the court this summer and …

Joakim Noah is a big reason why the Bulls have won seven of their last nine games.

And while statistics tell part of the story—Noah has recorded 13.9 points, 14.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 2.00 blocks and 1.20 steals in 35.8 minutes over his last 10 games—it’s the intangibles that separate him as one of the elite centers in the NBA. …
