Tough week? Who says it was a tough week for these Bulls? No stinkin’ tough week for these Bulls and Joakim Noah in a performance Saturday worth its weight in gold.

The heck week concluded with a 94-87 victory over the Sacramento Kings. And this is what Joakim Noah, after 23 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, five blocks and three …

It hasn’t been a perfect week for the Bulls, though on national ABC Sunday Joakim Noah’s play overshadowed that of LeBron James in a Bulls overtime win. And on national TNT Thursday, Noah missed a triple-double by one assist in the 111-87 victory over the Houston Rockets and an uninspiring Dwight Howard.

Mike Dunleavy came back from a 10-stitch …

Coming off a hard fought, emotional overtime victory against the Miami Heat, a challenge for the Bulls will be to sustain the right mentality and come ready for their next opponent, which happens to be a formidable one.

“It’s not easy,” said Joakim Noah as he and his teammates prepared to host the San Antonio Spurs, owners of the league’s …

Joakim Noah isn’t the best player in the NBA. We know that. Nobody is saying he is. But what exactly is a Most Valuable Player? Someone whose passion, enthusiasm and model inspires an entire team, if not a city? Someone whose will, desire and determination helps a team become more than it is supposed to be and perhaps eventually as …

Before Friday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau went over the Grizzlies plays, as he always does, and his team’s priorities.

Thibodeau drew on a dry erase board, but it might have been a mirror as there is no team in the NBA that more duplicates the Bulls than the Grizzlies, also in the top three in …

Joakim Noah in Wednesday’s 105-94 victory over the Detroit Pistons had his second triple-double this week and third of the season, more than LeBron James and Kevin Durant combined.

Jimmy Butler had 18 points and a game-high 12 rebounds as the Bulls overwhelmed one of the league’s top rebounding teams on the boards, 43-32.

Taj Gibson came off the bench …

Talk about your New York minute.

It’s been said as the time between the light turning green and a New Yorker blowing the car horn. It’s lately been the time between when an NBA game starts and the Knicks contemplating the postgame meal.

It was the time Sunday in the Bulls’ eventual 109-90 victory that Joakim Noah had three assists …

Get ready for eight minutes of Jimmer-mania?

Perhaps as Jimmer Fredette late Saturday afternoon cleared waivers after a buyout from the Sacramento Kings. Fredette, according to sources, tentatively agreed to sign with the Bulls. It’s still unofficial. If it finally occurs, it would be a prorated minimum for the remainder of the season for the former college player of the …

The Bulls aren’t this good, are they?

They’re in Dallas Friday night, and they’ve fought back from 16 points behind to take an 84-80 lead early in the fourth quarter, the highlight occurring with Joakim Noah literally diving over Dirk Nowitzki to corral a loose ball and call time out. But the Bulls then have five empty possessions, one with …

They have been three amigos, even if they don’t exactly spend all their time together. They have been good, bad and ugly on occasion, but hardly stooges. They have become the Bulls Big Three, the current version of the team’s Three Headed Monster: Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Carlos Boozer.

“We bring the juice for this team,” Boozer said following …
