One of my favorite Western movies is an 80’s campy film, Silverado, with a lot of stars who were not stars yet. There’s a wonderfully understated scene in which the bad guy sheriff played by Brian Dennehy shows up at the site of a jailbreak where the good guys got away and took out a few more of his corrupt …

Butler said he spoke with …

Derrick Rose is having surgery again.
Call it the six most feared words for Rose, the Bulls, their fans and the NBA community.
The Bulls’ media release Tuesday night arrived, once again with stunning disappointment and despair:

There was some very good news for the Bulls Friday in their 100-91 loss to the Detroit Pistons, their 10th loss this season to a sub.-500 team with eight of them to teams at least 10 games below. 500.
None of those teams will be in the playoffs.
Yes, you better laugh after this one. Or you’ll cry.
The Bulls, …

Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler Sunday were hardly the main attractions in the annual mid season circus and skills competition the NBA calls its All-Star game.
Amidst a near record 41 points for MVP winner Russell Westbrook in the Western Conference’s 163-158 bowling score event that was an alltime record for points, there were the usual assortment of alley oop …

Derrick Rose sliced and diced, he slashed and dashed. The warmth from the community covered him like a familiar blanket in the verbal salutes. The Bulls Thursday on national TNT dominated the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-98, and if it wasn’t exactly like old times, it sure seemed a lot like it and felt awfully good for the Bulls.

The Bulls are back! Well, perhaps that may be a bit premature given how they endured in New Orleans after Anthony Davis was injured and survived in Orlando because a young team with an interim coach panicked. And then Tuesday the Bulls pulled away from a deteriorating Sacramento Kings team apparently within days of playing for its third coach this …

The Bulls Sunday with a strong start defeated the Orlando Magic…No, wait! The Bulls Sunday blew a 16-point lead and lost to the Orlando Magic..No, wait! The Bulls Sunday went on a 7-0 run in the last 32.6 seconds to defeat the Orlando Magic…No, wait. Yes, they actually did!

The Bulls Saturday certainly made the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce proud. Their stay in New Orleans was the most fun, perhaps the only real fun, the team has had in weeks.
“I’m just happy that we won the game,” said Derrick Rose.
A game. For the Bulls, just like the definition for a change, an activity providing amusement and …
