The Knicks are supposed to be the second best team in the Eastern Conference, even beyond their 23-13 runner up record to the Miami Heat. The Bulls Friday in New York defeated the Knicks 108-101 for the third consecutive time this season, and in a game Knicks’ players have been saying they had circled after the beating they took from …

Derrick Rose will be there in Miami Friday when the Bulls get their first crack this season at the defending champion Miami Heat. But it’s not quite the same, obviously, with Rose sidelined likely another few months recovering from his knee injury and surgery.
These were the kind of games you circled the calendar for the last few years, the …

Will Joakim Noah be an All-Star this season?
It’s looking like it will be a close call with the NBA Thursday releasing the second voting returns.
Noah remains seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. The fan voting is for three front court players as the center position was eliminated this season and two backcourt players.
The second results were similar …

It was a good thing Joakim Noah didn’t add Houston to that list of questionable vacation cities, like Cleveland and Philadelphia, when the Bulls were there last month.
Because based on the first All-Star game returns released by the NBA Thursday, my guess is Noah has a good chance of being added to the team that will play in Houston …

The Bulls moved their record to a pedestrian 10-8 with a Saturday matchup in the United Center against the East leading New York Knicks.
But Friday’s win was more a moment in time to savor, a …

We knew the Bulls would miss Derrick Rose’s scoring and ability to make big plays. And it was obvious again in Monday’s 101-95 loss to the Boston Celtics when the Bulls came back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit to within three and then missed five shots and committed three turnovers.
“We had our chances,” agreed Joakim Noah, who had …

Hello, this is Gar Forman. Is Derek Fisher there? No. Well, how about Mike James? OK, what about Chris Quinn? Zabian Dowdell?
I don’t think the Bulls are quite there yet. But in defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder 94-89 Tuesday in the United Center, the Bulls endured the worst of all tweaks.
This being the one to Kirk Hinrich, the …

Well, maybe it doesn’t look that bad for the Bulls in the 2012-13 season, after all.
It’s not good, mind you, at least as long as Derrick Rose is recovering from knee surgery, which should be at least half the season. You lose the league MVP or your star and you get worse.
There are no shortcuts: Bulls go from …

It is said that history often repeats itself and on June 28 at the 2012 NBA Draft, it will happen once again if Commissioner David Stern announces Anthony Davis as the first pick.
It was four years ago when Derrick Rose, a Chicago kid who earned McDonald’s All-American honors as a senior before playing one season of college basketball for …

You don’t get to jump up from No. 29, but it wasn’t a bad night for the Bulls in Wednesday’s NBA Draft Lottery.
The New Orleans Hornets hit the jackpot by jumping up from No. 4 and will get the chance to select Chicagoan Anthony Davis, the 6-10 center from the University of Kentucky.
Davis is regarded as a potential …
