The first half Sunday in Miami, a 39-32 Bulls lead on the way to a 93-75 Bulls victory, was painful for so many. Little babies cried, women fainted, men lost their hair. Thibs paced, but Mike Dunleavy, scoreless at the break, relaxed.

Life, no how much we may otherwise prefer, becomes what occurs. Almost as if it’s preordained. Especially in sports. The team that wins is supposed to win, correct? So we will never know what could have happened if the Bulls kept Luol Deng last January. Would the Bulls have been out in the first round of the playoffs last season? …

NBA balloting for the All-Star team started Thursday, and for just the second time in franchise history it would appear the Bulls have a chance to have three All-Stars.
