Maybe Roy Hibbert, who is an All-Star, and David West? Really don’t score that much. Same with Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter. Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe? Too young. Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic? Maybe too ineffective. Dwight Howard and someone? But who? Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Got to make more free throws.

With Joakim Noah, who had his …

Joakim Noah is going back to the NBA All-Star Game again, and this time he may try to remember something about the game.

Not surprisingly, Noah said in a conference call with Chicago reporters after the All-Star reserve selection announcement Thursday, he couldn’t recall much about the last year’s game. He paused a bit and thought. No, still couldn’t.

Probably …

The Bulls will take second billing Wednesday in San Antonio because they are following the best ongoing story in the NBA.

Chicago open its Western Conference road trip against the Spurs on national ESPN following Kevin Durant and Oklahoma City visiting Miami in the faceoff of the top two contenders for league MVP. And it’s Durant edging ahead of LeBron …

Joakim Noah is having the best season in his seven-year NBA career.

He’s averaging 11.7 points and a career-high 11.4 rebounds, one of 10 NBA players averaging a double-double. Plus, he’s averaging 14.4 points and 15 rebounds in 11 games in January.

If not for Kevin Durant, he’d be making a case for player of the month. He’s in the …

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ Luol Deng remains eleventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players in the latest NBA All-Star Game fan balloting released Thursday.

There, I said it.

Luol Deng is a Cleveland Cavalier.

It’s not written on your All-Star ballot, and perhaps not in your heart. But it’s on the NBA’s list now. Friday he will be in that makes-you-blanch wine …

Luol Deng was probably in my speculative trade scenarios more than any other Bulls player. Not because he wasn’t a talent, but as I often would tell Deng because he was and how much he might be worth and even be in a better position for himself. None of them obviously occurred. So then I began to hope with the …

Will the Bulls be looking at immortality Saturday when they play the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center? Will the Bulls be defending the greatest shooter in the history of the NBA, Kyle Korver?

It’s certainly a debatable issue given the various criteria to rate shooting in the NBA.

But no one can claim what Kyle Korver can. Korver has …

The Bulls’ hopes of having a player in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game took a bit of a hit in the latest NBA fan voting returns released Thursday.

It’s now looking as if center Joakim Noah may have the best chance among the Bulls players as he held onto seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. Deng, who was ninth among …

There’s ice and there’s electrical stim and there’s massage and there’s ultrasound and there’s heat and manual therapy and soft tissue and joint work and muscle relaxation and all the conventional remedies for treating injuries.

But now with Jimmy Butler Thursday on crutches after a sprained ankle during the 107-95 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Luol Deng in a …

Noah? Present.

Deng? Absent.

Boozer? Present.

Hinrich? Absent.

Augustin? Anyone got a play book?

Just the right time for the Bulls Thursday to be on national TNT to play the league’s hottest team, the Oklahoma City Thunder who have won 15 of the last 16 games. And that’s with only four games against Eastern Conference teams.

Anyone for watching A …
