Do the Bulls have any All-Stars?

Well, not the way they’ve been playing lately, you might say.

But they have some players who will be able to make a good case for the Eastern Conference team in the next month.

The NBA Thursday released the first fan balloting results for the Feb. 16 All-Star game in New Orleans. And the …

1. Oct. 29: Heat in Miami. It doesn’t get much hotter. For a ticket, anyway. Perhaps the most anticipated game of the 2013-14 season. There’s obviously not much significance to the first game in an 82-game season. But this is the Heat getting their championship rings from commissioner David Stern presenting them for the final times as he retires this …

The Bulls preseason, really, their whole season, was to be the story of Derrick Rose’s return from knee surgery and his subsequent play.

That, remarkably, has become something of an ancillary concern with the team’s 104-95 victory Wednesday over the Thunder in Wichita, Kansas and another superlative Rose game. Rose scored 26 points including 13 in the fourth quarter with …

OK, the Bulls are ready. Anyone else?

Still another week until the regular season begins and two more exhibition games? Geez.

The Bulls Monday made quick and painless work of the Milwaukee Bucks, leading by 16 points less than six minutes into the game, by 23 at halftime and by fewer than 10 points for all of 5.2 seconds late, …

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo suggested Monday the way is being cleared for Derrick Rose to return to USA Basketball for the 2014 basketball World Cup in Spain and the 2016 Olympics in South America.

“Had he not been injured, he would have very likely been a member of the roster for the (2012) Olympics,” Colangelo said on a conference …

How’s that old joke go about the condemned man facing a firing squad and asking if he has one last request?

“Can the Bulls players shoot?”

At least not Sunday night in Oklahoma City as the Bulls established an NBA season low 29.1 percent in a game that was mostly uncompetitive throughout as the Bulls were behind 10 late in …

It wasn’t the block for Joakim Noah against Zach Randolph early in Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game won by the Western Conference All-Stars 143-138, or dunking that pass from LeBron James on the pick and roll, or the crossover drive for a basket, the defensive stand against eventual game MVP Chris Paul or the exasperation with the officials for not getting …

Joakim Noah, collegiate champion, iconoclast, innovative wardrobe manager with a career 8.9 scoring average his first two seasons, once suspended by his teammates, anthropology who clearly has evolved and is fond of talking about “swag,” is now an NBA All-Star.

Noah landed his first All-Star appearance and was joined by Luol Deng, making his second All-Star appearance.

Yes, the Bulls …

It looks like the Bulls are better than the Lakers, which would have been a good thing in 1987 or before the start of this season.

“We have a good team,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau after a fun night at the United Center with a howling, stomping, dancing crowd that enjoyed more than a 95-83 win over Kobe, Dwight, …

The Bulls should be represented at the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 17 in Houston.

The question is by whom.

My guess is it will be Joakim Noah, but it won’t be determined until next week when the Eastern Conference coaches select the All-Star reserves.

The NBA Thursday on TNT announced the starters for the 62nd annual event.

The Eastern …
