This Bulls team took a hard right cross with Derrick Rose’s season ending injury and then a stunning uppercut when Luol Deng was traded. The mantra was to go out and play the games. They didn’t admit it, but they wondered. Was it too much of a beating? Was a knockout looming?

“Yeah, I did have doubts,” Joakim Noah admitted …

Derrick Rose not only said he wasn’t depressed about his latest injury setback, but he wanted to know who even said he was. He didn’t say anything about disliking the Bulls’ rebuilding plans going forward, which was suggested in anonymous reports a few months back. He didn’t seem upset about the Luol Deng trade, said he wasn’t really even thinking …

Maybe Roy Hibbert, who is an All-Star, and David West? Really don’t score that much. Same with Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter. Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe? Too young. Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic? Maybe too ineffective. Dwight Howard and someone? But who? Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Got to make more free throws.

With Joakim Noah, who had his …

The Bulls Sunday were about to blow a 19-point late third quarter lead to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Lakers on a 7-0 run to open the fourth quarter to cut the Bulls lead to 77-69. And though the Lakers were depleted with injuries, they’re fourth in the league in three pointers made and can erase leads quickly.

But what …

You may be able to find happier people than Taj Gibson.

Perhaps someone sitting in their Redondo Beach condo facing the ocean and the beach volleyball players in February. Maybe a mother holding her baby for the first time. Maybe Thibs with game tapes and an empty Berto Center.

But there aren’t many beaming these days quite like Gibson, who …

The Bulls Tuesday recorded one of their more unlikely wins, 101-92 over Phoenix Suns, coming off one of their most unsightly losses, the blowout in Sacramento when they were close to franchise lows in shooting.

But even with the third game in four nights on the road against a rested team not only with five consecutive wins but which had …

Joakim Noah is going back to the NBA All-Star Game again, and this time he may try to remember something about the game.

Not surprisingly, Noah said in a conference call with Chicago reporters after the All-Star reserve selection announcement Thursday, he couldn’t recall much about the last year’s game. He paused a bit and thought. No, still couldn’t.

Probably …

Bulls center Joakim Noah has been selected by NBA coaches to represent the Eastern Conference in the 63rd NBA All-Star Game.

The announcement was made on TNT during its pregame show Thursday night.

“It’s an unbelievable honor to be selected for the All-Star Game and play against the best players in the world,” said Noah on a conference call with …

It’s one win and all that, but it was a pretty darned nice one for the Bulls in San Antonio Wednesday, 96-86 over the second ranked team in the Western Conference.

It marked the Bulls’ seventh win in their last eight on the road and 14th in the last 20 overall. With an 11-4 record, they are the winningest team …

The Bulls went into this season believing they had a pretty good chance with three All-Stars, Derrick Rose, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah.

It’s difficult to say, even though you’d get an argument from Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, that the Bulls had an equally good chance Monday against the Minnesota Timberwolves with Taj Gibson playing center for the ill Noah, …
