Young Jerry Reinsdorf was like a lot of kids growing up in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn in the 1940s, pretty much devoted to stickball and the Brooklyn Dodgers.

It’s not time to write the obituary for Joakim Noah as a Bulls player.

This season likely is over for Noah after he suffered a dislocated shoulder Friday against the Dallas Mavericks. The Bulls disclosed Saturday Noah was evaluated at Midwest Orthopedics at Rush, where it was determined that he will undergo surgery. His recovery time is estimated at four …

The Bulls Friday made very merry in Oklahoma City with a thunderous present for themselves and their fans, a 105-96 victory that not only represented a season sweep of the powerful Thunder, but the most dominant victory for any team over 20-10 Oklahoma City this season.

“We knew what we were capable of,” said Jimmy Butler, who led the Bulls …

Already, Fred Hoiberg is proving a coaching iconoclast.

Hoiberg Tuesday will coach his first NBA game, albeit exhibition, in the United Center against the Milwaukee Bucks. Yet, Hoiberg boldly is risking the Bulls chances for the preseason championship that the Bulls last won in 2013 with an 8-0 preseason.
