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. …

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ Luol Deng remains eleventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players in the latest NBA All-Star Game fan balloting released Thursday.
There, I said it.
Luol Deng is a Cleveland Cavalier.

Luol Deng was probably in my speculative trade scenarios more than any other Bulls player. Not because he wasn’t a talent, but as I often would tell Deng because he was and how much he might be worth and even be in a better position for himself. None of them obviously occurred. So then I began to hope with the …

The Bulls’ hopes of having a player in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game took a bit of a hit in the latest NBA fan voting returns released Thursday.
It’s now looking as if center Joakim Noah may have the best chance among the Bulls players as he held onto seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. Deng, who was ninth among …

Christmas morning is one for surprises, and starting at 11 a.m., the NBA is getting one.
No Derrick Rose, no Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce barely avoiding a suspension, Luol Deng likely out with an Achilles problem, Carmelo Anthony uncertain with a sprained ankle, Kevin Garnett calcifying.
“We’ll go in there and probably think of Game 7 for a minute,” said …

Augustin? Anyone got a play book?
Just the right time for the Bulls Thursday to be on national TNT to play the league’s hottest team, the Oklahoma City Thunder who have won 15 of the last 16 games. And that’s with only four games against Eastern Conference teams.
Anyone for watching A …

Do the Bulls have any All-Stars?
Well, not the way they’ve been playing lately, you might say.
But they have some players who will be able to make a good case for the Eastern Conference team in the next month.
The NBA Thursday released the first fan balloting results for the Feb. 16 All-Star game in New Orleans. And the …

There was perhaps one offensive possession for the Bulls Wednesday in their 83-78 loss to the New York Knicks that encapsulated the frustration and ineffectiveness that has been this discouraging season.
The Bulls with a little help from their equally underperforming colleagues in short pants from New York had tied the game at 74 with 3:38 left after trailing by …
