The last night of the NBA season may not be the most exciting, but it may be the most intriguing.

Because it may be more like a John le Carre novel, something of the Season that Came in from the Cold, and not just because it’s finally becoming warmer outside.

The Nets supposedly are easing off with the speculation that …

The first award of the 2014 NBA awards season goes to former Bull Luol Deng.

Deng was named winner of the 2013-14 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award. It is voted on by the 175 members of the Professional Basketball Writers Association, similar to the media group that votes for the NBA post season awards. The honor goes to a player, …

There’s a famous story from Illinois in the 1948 presidential campaign. Incumbent and underdog Harry Truman was giving a speech in Downstate Harrisburg in which he was coming hard and relentlessly at his Republican opponent. Suddenly, someone from the crowd yelled out, “Give ‘em hell, Harry.”

Let’s see how these NBA playoffs are about to set up for the Bulls: They’re currently the No. 4 seed, which would mean a first round series hosting the Brooklyn Nets, though the Nets still could fall behind Washington to No. 6.

How does that slogan go about the NBA playoffs? Forty days and forty nights? No, that’s the Noah movie. And no, there’s not a movie about Joakim Noah, who had yet another triple-double Wednesday in the Bulls’ 102-87 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Not yet, anyway. Come see our big, sweaty ballerinas? No, that’s not it.

You remember mid-January, don’t you? Actually, it’s not a very pleasant memory for those of us in the Midwest. There was about 25 inches of snow on the ground already for the month and we were learning the phrase “polar vortex” in also a most educational month. It was, by all accounts, a vortex to forget.

The Bucks stopped here Friday in the Bulls 102-90 victory over Milwaukee. Nah, been used too much.

The Bulls passed the Bucks, and outrebounded them and outhustled when as well with 13 steals, equaling a season high they also matched in Atlanta Wednesday. Don’t really like that one, either.
