So after all that–losing Derrick Rose to that catastrophic knee injury in Game 1, losing Joakim Noah to that horrendous sprained ankle in Game 3, and then with Taj Gibson limping to the locker room Tuesday in Game 5 with his own sprained ankle, after the team filing a missing persons report on Richard Hamilton, after it appeared the Bulls …

And then there was one.
Perhaps just one game left in this most remarkable and unusual — if not ultimately fulfilling — Bulls season ever. The Bulls after Sunday’s 89-82 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers trail 3-1 in the opening round playoff series. Game 5 is 8:30 p.m. CT Tuesday in Chicago.
Cue the NBA music, perhaps a dirge for …

How could this happen?
How after a second straight Bulls best record in the NBA could first Derrick Rose go out in the first game of the playoffs, and Joakim Noah, certainly for the rest of this series with the Philadelphia 76ers, in the third game?
So the Bulls, the No. 1 seeded team going into the playoffs, suddenly are …

The Bulls’ championship hopes for this season likely ended last Sunday when Derrick Rose suffered that torn anterior cruciate ligament late in the Bulls Game 1 playoff victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
But there seemed hope against the 76ers and possibly in the conference semifinals. Though that seems all but gone now with Joakim Noah sustaining a severe ankle sprain …

Joakim Noah probably has been the Bulls’ best player in this opening round playoff series with the Philadelphia 76ers, certainly with Derrick Rose out injured.

Now that 109-92 Philadelphia 76ers win Tuesday over the Bulls to even the first round playoff series at 1-1 is a game in which the Bulls could certainly have used Derrick Rose.
Yes, I know, we’ll be thinking that often for a long time to come, and it’s also time to get past that. Reporters in the wake of the …

Doug Collins had several messages for his team as the Philadelphia 76ers prepare for Game 2 of the first round playoff series with the Bulls Tuesday trailing 1-0.
Yes, the big story is the absence of Derrick Rose after his awful anterior cruciate ligament injury that put him out of the playoffs and well into next season. So Collins showed …

Everything was going so well… and then he was gone.
That’s what it felt like in the wake of the Bulls’ 103-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs when Derrick Rose fell clutching his knee in what was later confirmed to be a season ending torn anterior cruciate ligament.
It felt like a death, …

The Bulls Saturday opened the NBA playoffs with the definition of a Pyrrhic victory, that being a win at such unpleasant consequences that it mitigated the effects and muted any celebration.
“It might be one of the saddest wins we’ve ever had,” said Carlos Boozer.
That perhaps best summed up the Bulls dominating 103-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in …

Saturday at noon in the United Center for the Bulls begins what they’ve been waiting for, the 2012 playoffs with the Bulls hosting the No. 8 seeded Philadelphia 76ers, the team with the poorest record in these NBA playoffs.
But before beginning what the Bulls believe can be another march to an NBA championship—really, they do—it’s worth taking some time …
