There was no formal invitation. Reporters from Chicago and a few from around the country began slowly to encircle USA Basketball assistant coach Tom Thibodeau following the conclusion of Tuesday’s opening session of the three-day mini camp. There were no cheers, but there were no boos. Nor did anyone declare forcefully they had the privilege and distinct honor of presenting …

One of my favorite Western movies is an 80’s campy film, Silverado, with a lot of stars who were not stars yet. There’s a wonderfully understated scene in which the bad guy sheriff played by Brian Dennehy shows up at the site of a jailbreak where the good guys got away and took out a few more of his corrupt …

Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler Sunday were hardly the main attractions in the annual mid season circus and skills competition the NBA calls its All-Star game.

Amidst a near record 41 points for MVP winner Russell Westbrook in the Western Conference’s 163-158 bowling score event that was an alltime record for points, there were the usual assortment of alley oop …

The Bulls shooting guard, who is up for a new contract this month, was money in the Bulls bank Thursday with a buzzer beating three for an 85-84 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Butler with 20 fourth …

We know the sports axiom that a player doesn’t lose his starting job when he is injured.

Except perhaps if his team needs that player to help stabilize its reserve unit and depth.

The Bulls Saturday held on for their first win of the preseason, 91-85 over the Milwaukee Bucks. Pau Gasol led the Bulls with 20 points, 11 rebounds …

The Bulls Monday opened the 2014-15 preseason with an 85-81 loss to the Washington Wizards. Though, unofficially, make it 1-0 for the Bulls.

Derrick Rose with 11 points and four assists in just under 14 minutes and one-of-two on threes was the best player on the floor, albeit as little he played and only in the first half.

“I thought …

BARCELONA–Is the Derrick Rose we are seeing in Barcelona the new Derrick Rose as Rose Saturday was scoreless with four assists in about 16 minutes in the USA’s 86-63 win over Mexico? Or really the old Derrick Rose, the Rose we are going to see instead of the Rose we had seen?

Got that?

“Oh hell yeah,” Rose said when …

After four games in pool play for USA Basketball in the FIBA World Cup of Basketball, Derrick Rose is averaging 5.8 points on 26.1 percent shooting, two assists and two turnovers in 17.5 minutes per game.

No MVP chants. But Rose in Wednesday’s USA 106-71 victory over the Dominican Republic was arguably the USA’s most efficient and aggressive guard and …
