There’s the story of the guy who walks into the bookstore and asks where he can find the self help books. The salesman says he’d tell him, but then that would defeat the whole purpose, wouldn’t it?

And so it was for the Bulls Friday night at the United Center in a 112-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. They’re …

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 …

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.

It’s not written on your All-Star ballot, and perhaps not in your heart. But it’s on the NBA’s list now. Friday he will be in that makes-you-blanch wine …

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 …

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 …

At least there’s not going to be any more guessing games about Derrick Rose’s return from knee surgery.

Rose’s surgery for a torn meniscus, the Bulls announced Monday morning, went well and he will rehabilitate and be out for the rest of the 2013-14 season.

Bulls general manager Gar Forman discussed the Rose injury and the franchise going forward …

The Bulls were grieving.

But life and the NBA doesn’t stop for that. So about 36 hours after Derrick Rose sustained yet another serious knee injury, though this time not quite as severe, the Bulls players had to put it all out of their hearts and minds and commit their skill, energy, effort and enthusiasm to the basketball court. Perhaps …

Clippers coach Doc Rivers, the Maywood native and one of the league’s top coaches, says, for now, the Bulls likely have to improve from within.
