The magic slipper Sunday will be orange, Florida orange as it were, the color of the Adidas sneakers Derrick Rose will wear to start for the Eastern Conference in the NBA All-Star Game.
One of the most enduring tales in literature is the story of the unfortunate but pious and dutiful child who remains humble and virtuous amidst the greed …

To Bulls fans, Derrick Rose appears to be a super hero. So what if he were really a super hero? What would be his power?
“I’d want to be invisible,” said Rose.
His sneaker company might not think was too good an idea. But that’s what it was like Friday as the NBA All-Stars, with Bulls representatives Rose, Luol Deng …

Derrick Rose was named to his third All-Star team Thursday and second as a starter for the Eastern Conference as one of the most popular players in the NBA.
Rose was the leader among East guard in votes and second on the East team in votes to Dwight Howard. LeBron James was third and Dwyane Wade fourth. Rose will start …

One of the fun stories of the NBA season could be a game show: Are you smarter than an NBA general manager?

In basketball, as in life, there occasionally are times like the Bulls’ unusually uncompetitive 109-94 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
Call it: Saturday happens!
“In this league,” offered Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, “you usually get what you deserve.”
It was stunning in many respects as Derrick Rose with eight points, six assists and five turnovers likely had the poorest game …

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 …

What would it have been like if LeBron James came to the Bulls last summer?
Let me say despite what you may have heard or believe, Derrick Rose did nothing to discourage James. But had he come to Chicago, Rose might have turned into a shooting guard.
Because for much of Sunday’s fairly mundane NBA All-Star game won by the …

If there’s something to this All-Star snub/revenge thing, then the Bulls should be going to Kyle Korver Wednesday when they play the Utah Jazz.
That’s because Korver seemed to be the most egregious omission from the three point shootout contestants announced Tuesday.
Defending champion Paul Pierce will face Ray Allen, Kevin Durant, James Jones, Daniel Gibson and Dorell Wright in …

The coaches in the Eastern Conference pretty much decided Derrick Rose is carrying the Bulls and no member of the Boston Celtics deserves league MVP consideration.
At least that is one way to interpret the results for All-Star reserves announced Thursday with four Celtics being voted by the coaches to the All-Star team, while Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng were …
