Teams, though usually more media and fans, talk about certain games as so called measuring sticks, like when you play the best. It’s a look at perhaps where you rank in the league, how good you really are, your needs. A long road trip, particularly across multiple time zones to the opposite conference, also can be as meaningful and illustrative. …

That’s it? That’s what that vaunted West Coast offense looks like, the famed pace and space for three pointers? That’s what they’re all excited about, this new NBA of three pointers raining down like another damp day in Portland? Well, it was a stormy night for the Portland Trailblazers Tuesday as the Bulls with a deluge led by the lightning …

We all wondered in 2010 why LeBron James and Dwyane Wade went to Miami with Chris Bosh when they could have come to Chicago to play with Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah Luol Deng and Taj Gibson. It seemingly would have been a much better and more complete team than the one in Miami, which had to be rebuilt around them, …

Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo? It’s become one of the big surprise questions of the NBA and perhaps one of the principal curiosities of the coming season.

Can that work? Will that work? Is it a three-car pileup or just the beginning of a smooth, comfortable trip?

But it’s been a case of the missing …

That Thursday was the message from General Manager Gar Forman, who spoke to reporters at the Advocate Center following Rajon Rondo’s introduction as the Bulls’ new point guard. Forman was not permitted comment by league rule about Dwyane Wade, who is expected to sign soon with …

It’s Jimmy Butler driving into the lane, passing cross court to Denzel Valentine, who then off the dribble finds a cutting Jerian Grant to the basket for a layup. Or perhaps a pass out to Doug McDermott or Nikola Mirotic for a three.

The Splash Platoon! A lineup that can kill? You know, a Death Lineup.

The Bulls can only …

Jimmy Butler Wednesday didn’t quite say the Miami Heat has no chance Thursday against the Bulls. But to paraphrase the Bluto speech from the Animal House movie that was been used—unsuccessfully, mostly–for motivation this season, “He’s not taking this anymore! Wade, he’s a dead man! Whiteside, dead. Deng…”

Of course, the only actual dead man walking anyone has seen around …

When the Bulls showed up Tuesday in Indianapolis, it seemed like a funeral and they’d be in a casket. The four consecutive losses dropped them below .500, they’d suffered humiliating blowout losses to non contending teams, and the obituary was being written.

And then they sat up and declared, “We ain’t dead yet!”

That was with Jimmy Butler’s 10 footer …

The Bulls 126-115 victory Sunday over the Los Angeles Lakers was the undercard of the main event, the Kobe Bryant Farewell Tour marking Bryant’s final game in Chicago.
