He’s back?

Derrick Rose Tuesday in his first official NBA game in 18 months since reconstructive knee surgery shot four of 15 with one of seven on threes, added four assists but five turnovers in a 107-95 loss to the Miami Heat in which the Bulls trailed by 25 points in the fourth quarter.

It was like the Finals Tuesday before the beginning, the first game day shootaround before the first game of the 2013-14 NBA season.

The TV networks, TNT and ESPN, were there with cameras rolling as the Bulls prepared to play the Miami Heat in Miami’s first game since winning the championship in the same arena five months ago. The commissioner’s …

It’s not quite for the 2013-14 Bulls “The Last Dance,” Phil Jackson’s famous declaration that the 1997-98 season would be–and was–the last one together for that championship core of the 1990’s Bulls.

Don’t believe me. NBA history says this Bulls season is about to end. Eight times in NBA history a team trailing 3-1 in the playoffs, as the Bulls are to the Miami Heat with Game 5 in Miami Wednesday, has come back to win a seven game series.

That’s in the 194 times teams have trailed 3-1, making it a …

Why us? Why now? Why again? You heard it in their voices, if not always the words Monday when the Bulls lost 88-65 to the Miami Heat in probably the team’s worst ever playoff performance.

If the sentiment was determined afterward about going to Miami Wednesday to bring back to Chicago the series, now 3-1 in favor of the Heat, …
