The Bulls Friday finally opened training camp for the 2010-11 season, two months late because of the NBA labor dispute but still with the same questions hanging over the team as when it walked off the court in the United Center last spring after the conference finals loss to the Miami Heat.
Can the Bulls acquire more shooting, just a …

The Bulls are a potential championship team for the 2011-12 season.
But they’ll be fortunate to win 50 games.
And maybe not that many early in a brutal stretch of 30 games in 50 nights, the Frightening Fifty days.
It will include seven of the first nine on the road, 19 games in January and a nine games in 12 …

I’d grade the Bulls draft pretty well, though incomplete for now given we won’t know for a few years what they have in Nikola Mirotic, the 6-10 scoring forward from Montenegro whom the Bulls acquired for their Nos. 28 and 43 picks.
So they add for their roster just Marquette’s Jimmy Butler, a rugged big/guard small forward defender.
And the …

Sometimes the other guy is just better.
Which is not saying the Miami Heat is better than the Bulls and hardly that this Eastern Conference finals series is over with Miami having a 2-1 lead with Game 4 in Miami Tuesday.
But the Bulls have lost two straight after a brilliant opening game win, and while they were in Games …

They used to call it the Archangel offense for the Bulls at times like this. You know, save us Michael.
It’s probably unfair and not what this Bulls team truly has been about all season in winning 62 games. But with Sunday’s Miami 96-85 victory to take a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference finals, the Bulls probably are looking …

To paraphrase the old joke about the condemned man with a last wish, he was asked his preferred method of execution. He picked the Bulls since that made it less than a 40 percent chance they’d hit anything.
Derrick Rose: 37.8 percent
Luol Deng: 40 percent
Carlos Boozer: 40 percent
Joakim Noah: 34.8 percent
Keith Bogans: 33.3 percent
Those are …

Welcome back to the Miami starting lineup, Zydrunas Ilgauskas.
No, it’s hardly official and no scoop that I know of. Plus, in a Pat Riley organization treason clearly is associated with speaking frankly to the media. They know nothing!
But the Miami Heat coming into Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Wednesday in the United Center trailing 1-0 probably …

They’re supposed to come up with nicknames for games like this, the Bulls stunningly impressive 103-82 Eastern Conference finals Game 1 rout Sunday of the Miami Heat.
Sunday Night Smackdown!
May 15 Massacre!
It’s Cryin’ Time Again for Miami!
“We took it on the chin tonight,” acknowledged Miami coach Erik Spoelstra. “Virtually all the effort areas, obviously, the glass, second‑chance …

Perhaps never have the Bulls been as popular as they likely will be for the next two weeks in the Eastern Conference finals starting Sunday in the United Center.
Can you measure a whole basketball world rooting against one team?
Human emotion is both difficult to predict and often irrational. And if everyone is not fully sure why, they don’t …

Nobody said it among the Bulls Thursday after they defeated the Atlanta Hawks 93-73 to move onto the Eastern Conference finals starting Sunday night in the United Center against the Miami Heat.
Of course, had anyone said it coach Tom Thibodeau would have wrestled him to the ground before having the chance. And one look at Thibodeau and you know …
