Do the Bulls have any All-Stars?
Well, not the way they’ve been playing lately, you might say.
But they have some players who will be able to make a good case for the Eastern Conference team in the next month.
The NBA Thursday released the first fan balloting results for the Feb. 16 All-Star game in New Orleans. And the …

Derrick Rose still is healthy.
But the Bulls Monday in running away from the Memphis Grizzlies 106-87 for a second consecutive preseason victory are feeling good and pretty much are making this Rose watch theme moot.
“The first half I was kind of jittery,” said Rose, who played an uneventful 23 minutes with once again 13 points and four of …

It’s tough to be the next great one. Grant Hill and Vince Carter never much cared for that Next Jordan label, and many others have tripped up being advertised as the next Wilt or Russell or Oscar or Magic or Bird.
Mike Dunleavy Jr. as well since being a good shooting, unselfish, ball handling white guy, well, you have to …

It seemed to Jimmy Butler that life in the NBA was his life all over again, ignored and rejected as a child back in Texas, overlooked by all the big basketball schools when he so much wanted to play, secondary at Marquette as a backup role player when he arrived and then watching, watching, watching all the time even as …

Is Charles C.J. Watson the fulcrum in this Bulls/Nets series?
No, not because Joe Johnson also has plantar fasciitis and is a game-time decision for Thursday’s pivotal (they all are, but we like to say it, anyway) Game 3 of this first round series now tied 1-1. Though if Johnson can’t play, Watson likely would move into the starting lineup.…

Really, c’mon now. This is getting ridiculous. And I better not hear anyone in the NBA complain about the second of a back-to-back on the road ever again.
In fact, the Bulls’ relentless 93-76 victory over the Atlanta Hawks Saturday could be one of those seminal moments in NBA history, like the first morning shootaround.
Playing the second game of …

Joakim Noah is not a morning person. You, of course, can just about tell by his looks. But really, few in the NBA are. After all, they really are second shift workers, needing to be at their best around 9 p.m. So 9 a.m. is a bit early for a lot of noise to say nothing about adjectives.
But that’s …

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 …
