In the annual NBA Draft Thursday, the Bulls selected the potential replacement for Marco Belinelli.

The Brooklyn Nets apparently added two of the top players in NBA history, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

Edge Bulls?

The story of the draft was less the surprise of Anthony Bennett going No. 1 to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Nerlens Noel falling to No. …

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 …

And so it has come to this, Thursday for Game 1, the expected Miami Heat back in the NBA Finals for the third consecutive season, and the unexpected San Antonio Spurs back for the first time since 2007 after being pretty much dismissed before the season, as usual, as most expected a rematch with the Oklahoma City Thunder or a …

There have been tougher games to win for the Bulls against the Miami Heat than Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

There was the one when the team was late and Benny and the Elevators had to match up with the 1986 Celtics. And there was the time Shaler Halimon and Kennedy McIntosh took on Jerry …

Probably, and shockingly given recent events and a 42-point loss in Sacramento Wednesday, that was one …

The Brooklyn Nets are supposed to be good. They have the NBA’s second highest payroll and are committed to the biggest for next season. They have four current and former All-Stars in their starting lineup. And Saturday at the United Center the Bulls absolutely dominated them in a 96-85 dismantling that included a paralyzing 19-0 run.

So just how good …

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 …

One time can be a fluke, not that it was for Luol Deng when the Eastern Conference coaches sent Deng to his first NBA All-Star Game last year. But not twice; twice selected you are a star.
