All that was missing was the shrug. Sorry, wrong year.

It was the 20th anniversary celebration Saturday in the United Center of the Bulls’ first championship, and 2011 looked a lot like the 1990s with a 68-point first half in which the Bulls led by 30 points and equaled an all-time NBA record with thirteen first half three pointers made …

For former Bulls guard and current TNT analyst Steve Kerr, the transition from the Suns front office back to the world of television wasn’t exactly all that challenging.

LeBron James was waiting for it, the subtle knuckleball of a question coming his way after his Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday eliminated the Bulls in five games with a tough 96-94 victory in the opening round playoff series.
