I’m occasionally asked about a favorite player and it’s not an easy question because there really are mostly good guys in the NBA. But one of the joys of traveling around with the Bulls is the camaraderie around the league, and renewing acquaintances with players around the NBA.

If the Bulls could have dreamed up the pairings for the NBA playoffs starting this weekend, it likely would have come out something like it has with the Bulls opening at home Sunday against the Washington Wizards.

The Bulls with Wednesday’s regular season ending 91-86 overtime loss to the Charlotte Bobcats fell to the No. 4 seed in the Eastern …

The last night of the NBA season may not be the most exciting, but it may be the most intriguing.
