Yes, that was a cute little group of players the Bulls had coming off the bench last season. Even gave themselves a whimsical nickname and sold some t-shirts.
But how about having a real, productive group of reserves, players who actually average double figures, which no Bulls reserve has done the past two years. How about 13 of the Bulls’ …

The Bulls now can say they’ve only been uncompetitive twice this season. But when they are it really looks bad as the Atlanta Hawks Saturday overwhelmed a seemingly tired and surprisingly casual Bulls team 92-75.
It was the second fewest points the Bulls scored this season, and not exactly against one of the better defensive teams.
It was so bad …

Defeat isn’t a tragedy, though no one among the Bulls’ players was feeling particularly sanguine Monday about a 27-point third quarter lead at home that turned into an inexplicable 93-92 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
“I’m stunned by simple fact that we have a 25 point lead (even he didn’t know it was worse) and the way we defend we …

It was Joakim Noah who made the “arrive home safely shot” for the Bulls Wednesday, the clinching 18-footer with 29.5 seconds left that sent the home fans to the exits in a Bulls’ 112-106 overtime victory over the Phoenix Suns.
Yes, Noah of the counter-clockwise spinning “tornado” jump shot, of the hook shot launched sometimes from his waist, the guy …

If Thursday on TNT’s national TV and in the United Center was an assessment for the Bulls against the Western champion Oklahoma City Thunder, the Bulls may be better than anticipated but not as good as they hope they can be.
“We were right there in the game,” said Luol Deng, who carried the offense with 27 points, including two …

Who says the Bulls couldn’t finish third in the Eastern Conference without Derrick Rose? Well, they just did. Oh, right. Preseason. But the Bulls finished a good one for them with a 97-90 victory over the Central Division favored Indiana Pacers at the University of Notre Dame Friday night.
“It was great to play a really good team,” said Carlos …

First place, baby!
OK, perhaps it’s a bit too soon to celebrate being undefeated after the Bulls sweat-it-out 92-88 win Tuesday at the United Center over the Memphis Grizzlies in the preseason opener.
“Choppy,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau offered about a stuttering start and then a big third quarter before a group of regular irregulars shot one for 21 in …

When the Bulls took the court and opened the preseason against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday at the United Center, they did so with a different look.
The most significant change, of course, was that Derrick Rose remains on the sideline as he rehabs a torn ACL. With Rose out, Kirk Hinrich started at point guard in his return to …

How about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 21st at home against the Lakers? Nah, too early.
What about the Heat’s first trip into the United Center right after the All-Star break February 21? Probably still too soon.
OK, what about Derrick Rose playing his first game of the 2012-13 season at home Saturday, March 2 against the Brooklyn …

Well, maybe it doesn’t look that bad for the Bulls in the 2012-13 season, after all.
It’s not good, mind you, at least as long as Derrick Rose is recovering from knee surgery, which should be at least half the season. You lose the league MVP or your star and you get worse.
There are no shortcuts: Bulls go from …
