I’ve been to a lot of bad Bulls drafts. Mark Randall, Byron Houston, Travis Knight, Marcus Fizer and Tyrus Thomas come to mind. Thursday night was a very good one as the Bulls pulled out a minor coup and traded their Nos. 16 and 19 draft picks for the rights to national player of the year, Doug McDermott of Creighton.…

Bulls center Joakim Noah has another accolade to add to his best professional season thus far, this time as a member of the 2013-14 All-NBA First Team.

As much as ever, NBA teams value talented and able shooters for the way they can affect the game.

That’s just part of why Creighton product Doug McDermott believes he is capable of making an impact as he enters the professional ranks.

“I think I’d fit in great,” McDermott said of the Bulls at the recent NBA Draft Combine. “I …

The Bulls 2013-14 season ended Tuesday with that 75-69 defeat to lose 4-1 in the playoff series to the Washington Wizards.

This 2013-14 Bulls season that ended Tuesday night at the United Center in a 75-69 loss to the Washington Wizards — the third straight Bulls home loss in this 4-1 Wizards’ playoff win — probably couldn’t have ended any other way.

The overachieving, hard working, never-give-up band had Joakim Noah limping through 43 minutes on a swollen knee and Taj …

So what’s next for the Bulls after yet another disappointing close to the season, a second first round exit losing to a lower seed.

In 2012, it was Derrick Rose’s devastating injury in the first game of the playoffs and then the six-game loss. Last season, it was the thrilling first round series and seventh game victory in Brooklyn before …

As playoff slogans go, the Bulls have completed half. They’re going home after Sunday’s discouraging 98-89 Game 4 loss to the Washington Wizards. Now the Bulls have to win.

“You can’t put it on any one guy,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau as his team was badly outplayed, especially from the start, for the fourth consecutive game. “It’s our team, …

This is what you’d say is a must win for the Bulls Friday in Washington trailing the first round playoff series 2-0 with only three teams in NBA history having come back to win after losing the first two games at home.

Dare we say backs to the wall as no team in NBA history has ever won a playoff …

Perhaps the Bulls have the Washington Wizards right where they want them after Tuesday’s 101-99 overtime loss left the Bulls trailing 2-0 in this first round playoff series.

No Bulls team ever has recovered to win a series after losing the first two games at home, and only three teams have done so in NBA history.

But doesn’t it fit …

The Washington Wizards had something of an in your face strategy against the Bulls Sunday that went a long way toward the Wizards’ 102-93 victory in Game 1 of the playoffs.

The Wizards basically declared, “You guys aren’t that good.”
