Christmas morning is one for surprises, and starting at 11 a.m., the NBA is getting one.
No Derrick Rose, no Brook Lopez, Paul Pierce barely avoiding a suspension, Luol Deng likely out with an Achilles problem, Carmelo Anthony uncertain with a sprained ankle, Kevin Garnett calcifying.

There’s ice and there’s electrical stim and there’s massage and there’s ultrasound and there’s heat and manual therapy and soft tissue and joint work and muscle relaxation and all the conventional remedies for treating injuries.

Just the right time for the Bulls Thursday to be on national TNT to play the league’s hottest team, the Oklahoma City Thunder who have won 15 of the last 16 games. And that’s with only four games against Eastern Conference teams.
Anyone for watching A …

The best thing about the Bulls’ 91-90 win over the Milwaukee Bucks Friday was not Mike Dunleavy’s banked in three-pointer with 5.8 seconds left.
Though it was pretty kooky.

Do the Bulls have any All-Stars?
Well, not the way they’ve been playing lately, you might say.

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 …

With Derrick Rose, now after four Bulls preseason games, it’s perhaps just about looking for flaws. And, amazingly enough, there don’t seem to be any.
“As long as I’m playing the way I’m playing and we’re winning games, I couldn’t care less about getting back to my regular self,” Rose said Wednesday after the Bulls’ easy 96-81 victory over the …

Bulls summer league thus far, with a 2-0 record after Monday’s impressive 93-81 victory over the Denver Nuggets, has been something of a fairy tale start.
Call it Goudelock and the Four Bulls.
And then Goudelock proclaimed:
“This shot is too short.”
And then he hit another and said,
“This shot is too long.”
And finally he made another in …
