The NBA draft overall has not been particularly kind to the Bulls.

Sure, it did help them to all their six championships with the drafting of Michael Jordan in 1984. And it did produce the only other MVP in franchise history with Derrick Rose in 2008. There was a big one with Scottie Pippen in 1987 and later residuals from …

The Bulls are getting the band back together. At least with a few new members.

The Bulls Sunday agreed to terms on a two-year deal with veteran point guard Kirk Hinrich. Former first round draft pick Nikola Mirotic also posted on his Twitter account–as Pau Gasol did Saturday–that he was signing with the Bulls. Mirotic’s deal is estimated at three …

I’ve been to a lot of bad Bulls drafts. Mark Randall, Byron Houston, Travis Knight, Marcus Fizer and Tyrus Thomas come to mind. Thursday night was a very good one as the Bulls pulled out a minor coup and traded their Nos. 16 and 19 draft picks for the rights to national player of the year, Doug McDermott of Creighton.…

The Bulls 2013-14 season ended Tuesday with that 75-69 defeat to lose 4-1 in the playoff series to the Washington Wizards.

Wednesday began Melo Watch 2014, Day 1: He’s having dinner.

So what’s next for the Bulls after yet another disappointing close to the season, a second first round exit losing to a lower seed.

In 2012, it was Derrick Rose’s devastating injury in the first game of the playoffs and then the six-game loss. Last season, it was the thrilling first round series and seventh game victory in Brooklyn before …

As playoff slogans go, the Bulls have completed half. They’re going home after Sunday’s discouraging 98-89 Game 4 loss to the Washington Wizards. Now the Bulls have to win.

“You can’t put it on any one guy,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau as his team was badly outplayed, especially from the start, for the fourth consecutive game. “It’s our team, …

Joakim Noah was, as usual, the last one to leave the Bulls locker room after Friday’s breathless 100-97 victory over the Washington Wizards. It had been both an emotional and pivotal day, Noah earlier at shootaround involved in an expletive-filled dispute with an antagonistic Wizards’ employee and then fouling out late in the game. But as Noah scrubbed out his …

This is what you’d say is a must win for the Bulls Friday in Washington trailing the first round playoff series 2-0 with only three teams in NBA history having come back to win after losing the first two games at home.

Dare we say backs to the wall as no team in NBA history has ever won a playoff …

Perhaps the Bulls have the Washington Wizards right where they want them after Tuesday’s 101-99 overtime loss left the Bulls trailing 2-0 in this first round playoff series.

No Bulls team ever has recovered to win a series after losing the first two games at home, and only three teams have done so in NBA history.

But doesn’t it fit …

Love is what truly makes Joakim Noah who he is.

Love of his family, who was there Monday when Noah received the Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year award, love of his teammates, whom he credited for his success, love of the fans, who thrill to his passion, and love of the game, a love that is on display …
