The year 1949 was a turning point in the life of 13-year-old Jerry Reinsdorf. In the Jewish religion, a boy has his Bar Mitzvah at age 13. It is considered the time honored traditional age of manhood, when by Jewish law being responsible for your actions passes from the parents to the child.

Young Jerry realized there also was an …

Dwyane Wade is no Michael Jordan. In fact, when Wade Friday met reporters for the first time since signing to play for the Bulls, the Chicago native who grew up in southwest suburban Oak Lawn reiterated he, like all the kids, wanted to be like Mike. And the Bulls.

“This is one of those moments for me that is a …

The Bulls have a chance to be much improved, and what’s wrong with that?

That Thursday was the message from General Manager Gar Forman, who spoke to reporters at the Advocate Center following Rajon Rondo’s introduction as the Bulls’ new point guard. Forman was not permitted comment by league rule about Dwyane Wade, who is expected to sign soon with …

It’s Jimmy Butler driving into the lane, passing cross court to Denzel Valentine, who then off the dribble finds a cutting Jerian Grant to the basket for a layup. Or perhaps a pass out to Doug McDermott or Nikola Mirotic for a three.

Perhaps the opponent ledger says it all—even if it’s mostly indecipherable—about this 2015-16 Bulls season that remains one Bulls loss or Indiana Pacers win from being eliminated from the playoffs. With Saturday’s 105-102 win over the conference leading Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bulls finish 7-1 against against the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, 3-1 over the Cavs.

But the …

Look, the Bulls fired Jerry Sloan, after all.

And so probably ends the Bulls career of Kirk Hinrich, as close as any ever have been to the original Mr. Bull, the personification in many ways of what the Bulls represent, from the snort of the mascot to the floor burn.

Kirk Hinrich may not be remembered as the greatest Bulls …

Taj Gibson hasn’t started packing yet.

“It could be worse,” Gibson told reporters after Bulls practice Wednesday about his name again in trade rumors. “People could not be saying your name at all. But it comes with it when the team is underachieving; you’ve got to kind of shake up things. I see what’s out there. I’m no stranger (to …
