Welcome back, NBA. I missed you. Oh, to read a box score again. That was sweet. The NBA returned Friday with four exhibition games, including the Bulls’ 95-86 victory over the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis.

It wasn’t a great effort by the Bulls, who fell behind quickly and rallied thanks to a fairly awful Pacers’ bench. The Pacers are a …

It’s been 203 days since that discouraging, draining May 26 night in the United Center. But now: They’re back!

The Bulls Friday again play NBA basketball, the first of two preseason games before the opening of the labor-shortened, 66-game season Christmas Day against the Lakers. The Bulls Friday visit the Indiana Pacers, whom they defeated in a rugged five game …

I can probably come up with a better historical figure to quote and don’t suggest any particular resemblance to anyone living or dead or in the Bulls offices, but after spending Sunday afternoon at the Bulls’ annual Berto Center media day to officially open camp for the 2011-12 season the overwhelming vibe was to quote Alfred E. Newman from Mad …

I’d grade the Bulls draft pretty well, though incomplete for now given we won’t know for a few years what they have in Nikola Mirotic, the 6-10 scoring forward from Montenegro whom the Bulls acquired for their Nos. 28 and 43 picks.

So they add for their roster just Marquette’s Jimmy Butler, a rugged big/guard small forward defender.

And the …

The Bulls unlikely 2010-11 season came to a stunning end Thursday night, perhaps fittingly, as it began. The 83-80 loss to the Miami Heat, who now go onto the NBA Finals to play the Dallas Mavericks, was as unexpected as the Bulls regular season as the NBA’s best team.

But in the end, the Bulls were not the most talented …

It was the day after Game 3 in Miami, the Joakim Noah apology day, a film session for the Bulls without a practice, a chance to recover physically and mentally after losing two straight to the Heat.

The NBA arranged the player interviews in a ballroom in the team’s hotel, and after everyone had finished, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, …

It was both the cruelty and beauty of sport Tuesday in Miami when the Miami Heat beat the Bulls 101-93 in overtime in a classic playoff game, less for its artistry than its absolutely breathtaking tension and willful desire by both teams.

“I think you could tell that neither team wanted to lose,” said Dwyane Wade, who overcame a horrid …

Sometimes the other guy is just better.

Which is not saying the Miami Heat is better than the Bulls and hardly that this Eastern Conference finals series is over with Miami having a 2-1 lead with Game 4 in Miami Tuesday.

But the Bulls have lost two straight after a brilliant opening game win, and while they were in Games …

They used to call it the Archangel offense for the Bulls at times like this. You know, save us Michael.

It’s probably unfair and not what this Bulls team truly has been about all season in winning 62 games. But with Sunday’s Miami 96-85 victory to take a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference finals, the Bulls probably are looking …

Perhaps never have the Bulls been as popular as they likely will be for the next two weeks in the Eastern Conference finals starting Sunday in the United Center.

Can you measure a whole basketball world rooting against one team?

Human emotion is both difficult to predict and often irrational. And if everyone is not fully sure why, they don’t …
