You could almost hear the rippling of applause, like it was a presidential State of the Union address. Except it was Bulls general manager Gar Forman. And if you could get past the part with Forman wearing shorts, it was somewhat presidential.

The state of the Bulls, as Forman told it Wednesday after USA Basketball practice at UNLV, is sound …

Media members were only allowed in for the last half hour of USA Basketball scrimmages Tuesday in Las Vegas. I watched carefully, and Derrick Rose did appear fast, though not faster than a speeding bullet. He was powerful, though not more so than a speeding locomotive and Rose’s jumping ability seemed untainted, though not quite ready to leap a tall …

It’s Comeback III for Derrick Rose starting Monday in Las Vegas with the USA Basketball World Cup team training camp. Yes, it’s Roman numerals now because it is that significant.

And it’s also time to begin setting the record straight regarding Rose.

He’s joined an elite group in NBA history, stars who have been demeaned in their own community. For …

It was late in the second quarter Saturday of the Bulls’ summer league opener and Tony Snell actually looked like he wanted to play basketball. It is not a scene that played out much in Snell’s disappointing rookie season.

The laconic 6-7 swingman who sometimes could be mistaken for a birdwatcher on the court, started with a couple of gracefully …

As much as ever, NBA teams value talented and able shooters for the way they can affect the game.

That’s just part of why Creighton product Doug McDermott believes he is capable of making an impact as he enters the professional ranks.

Deng was named winner of the 2013-14 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award. It is voted on by the 175 members of the Professional Basketball Writers Association, similar to the media group that votes for the NBA post season awards. The honor goes to a player, …

There’s a famous story from Illinois in the 1948 presidential campaign. Incumbent and underdog Harry Truman was giving a speech in Downstate Harrisburg in which he was coming hard and relentlessly at his Republican opponent. Suddenly, someone from the crowd yelled out, “Give ‘em hell, Harry.”

The feisty Truman, who was the most surprising of presidents, looked out and happily …

There didn’t seem anything extraordinary in the Bulls’ 105-92 victory over the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday, a sweep of the season series that was the Bulls’ fifth win in their last six to move to a season best 43-32.

The Bulls still remain tied with Toronto for third in the Eastern Conference and two and a half games ahead of fifth …

Sometimes basketball can be like poetry, its interconnected movements evoking a dramatic and creative art.

Often it is not, like in the last few minutes Tuesday of the Bulls’ 107-103 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Let me count the ways to the depths, breath and heights of old and new griefs which enabled the Bulls to salvage the win, their …

Maybe Roy Hibbert, who is an All-Star, and David West? Really don’t score that much. Same with Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter. Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe? Too young. Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic? Maybe too ineffective. Dwight Howard and someone? But who? Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Got to make more free throws.

With Joakim Noah, who had his …
