The start of the last season of that old Bulls gang we came to both love and despair over so much probably went something like this message, perhaps more understated, unsaid, if also apparent.

It was that you guys have been in this run for five or six years. You haven’t gotten there. We added a center with a championship …

It wasn’t how the Bulls hoped it would be eight years ago when they drafted Derrick Rose and with a future league Most Valuable Player were soon on the verge of the NBA Finals and perhaps another, at least, mini-dynasty.

But it officially ended Wednesday after a 115-105 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers that gave the Bulls a 42-40 record, …

The ball, shot by Doug McDermott bounded high over the rim where Cristiano Felicio glided in, jumped, and as the ball reached its zenith like a balloon floating away, cupped it in his large right hand and in one motion slammed it back through the basket. Then Justin Holiday, step back 14 footer, transition three from Jimmy Butler. And then …

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.

And then there was one, one Bulls loss or Indiana Pacers’ win separating the Bulls from a destiny they and most everyone else around the NBA never considered possible six months ago.

“Just (not) the way we wanted the season to end up, not (what) we wanted,” said Jimmy Butler with 25 points as the Bulls were overrun down the …

And just like that after trailing by seven points with 43.3 seconds left in perhaps the most important game of the Bulls season Saturday, there was Jimmy Butler hustling over in front of a driving Reggie Jackson for what looked like an offensive foul, an amazing chance to get the ball back with 20.4 seconds left and a chance to …

Pssst, pass it on. Derrick doesn’t like Jimmy.

Did you hear, Pau doesn’t like Derrick.

Did you know Jo was mad at Pau.

Hey, how about Jimmy hating Fred like that!

“They need to just shut up,” an exasperated Taj Gibson told reporters after Bulls practice Friday when asked about reports in nmedia that coach Fred Hoiberg didn’t fit with …

As the Bulls jet traveled back to Chicago following the disastrous 111-89 loss to the Orlando Magic, a somber Saturday night transitioned into Easter Sunday, and it was a Bulls team seeking a resurrection of its own.

A lively playoff chase has quickly become a death spiral with Saturday culminating perhaps the Bulls’ worst week in a decade, three consecutive …

The Bulls pressured into the ball, forcing so many tough shots they were able to hold the Utah Jazz to 40 percent shooting and 30 percent on threes in Saturday’s 92-85 Bulls victory over the Jazz.

Yes, those Bulls.

The Bulls guards fought over screens and their big men flushed out to force the Jazz guards away from the lane …
