Bulls fans, you can open your eyes again.

“Win or lose,” Joakim Noah was saying in a relaxed Bulls locker room late Friday night after a dominating 113-95 victory over the Golden State Warriors, “that was the best we’ve played in a long time.”

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

Sometimes when things are going badly—as it was for the Bulls Sunday in a national TV 90-81 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers—you have to be thankful for the positives.

Which were, well actually, they were, when no, well not that…

Oh yeah, no one else got hurt and none of the Bulls many, many missed shots injured any spectators.…

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.

So when Deng takes the court Sunday in Houston for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, he will be one of the senior guys …

The Bulls took a look in the NBA mirror Monday at the United Center and didn’t like much what they saw in a 103-89 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

“We have to grind,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, pretty much defining this Bulls team without Derrick Rose. “That’s what allows us to be successful. If we don’t, we’re not …

It’s not exactly a crisis. Actually, it’s a pretty good thing for the Bulls as they ponder their 93-85 victory Monday over the Charlotte Bobcats, their seventh win in the last nine, to go to 27-17. But with the emergence of second year man Jimmy Butler, who led the Bulls in scoring off the bench with a career high 19 …

You want to listen to a man when he’s an All-Star. Because then he’s achieved the respect of his profession with the assumption he embraces the gravity of a situation, the need to express the proper thoughtfulness and solemnity to inquires about performance.

“Kirky Worky, huge for us,” Joakim Noah was enthusing in the Bulls locker room after the Bulls …

Joakim Noah, collegiate champion, iconoclast, innovative wardrobe manager with a career 8.9 scoring average his first two seasons, once suspended by his teammates, anthropology who clearly has evolved and is fond of talking about “swag,” is now an NBA All-Star.

Noah landed his first All-Star appearance and was joined by Luol Deng, making his second All-Star appearance.

Yes, the Bulls …

It looks like the Bulls are better than the Lakers, which would have been a good thing in 1987 or before the start of this season.

“We have a good team,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau after a fun night at the United Center with a howling, stomping, dancing crowd that enjoyed more than a 95-83 win over Kobe, Dwight, …
