Steph Curry isn’t looking for tips yet. And no one’s intimidated that he might enter the All-Star Three-Point Shootout. But Dwyane Wade’s getting his three ball warmed up and ready to go.

“My game translates anywhere,” Wade told reporters after Wednesday’s second day of Bulls training camp workouts. “I’ve played with so many different players before. I’m not worried about …

It may be time for the t-shirts. Or perhaps copyright. Maybe Pat Riley will beat everyone to it as he did with threepeat.

Get ready for the Three Alphas.

“The excitement shows around the city,” Bulls All-Star Jimmy Butler was saying late Friday night about the new look Bulls after the USA Basketball team romped over Venezuela 80-45 in a …

Dwyane Wade is no Michael Jordan. In fact, when Wade Friday met reporters for the first time since signing to play for the Bulls, the Chicago native who grew up in southwest suburban Oak Lawn reiterated he, like all the kids, wanted to be like Mike. And the Bulls.

As if Venezuela doesn’t have enough problems with food shortages and riots roiling the country in a desperate humanitarian crisis. Now the national basketball team must face a hungry USA Basketball juggernaut in the United Center 8 p.m. Friday.

It’s Jimmy Butler driving into the lane, passing cross court to Denzel Valentine, who then off the dribble finds a cutting Jerian Grant to the basket for a layup. Or perhaps a pass out to Doug McDermott or Nikola Mirotic for a three.

The Bulls can only …

The start of the last season of that old Bulls gang we came to both love and despair over so much probably went something like this message, perhaps more understated, unsaid, if also apparent.

Perhaps the opponent ledger says it all—even if it’s mostly indecipherable—about this 2015-16 Bulls season that remains one Bulls loss or Indiana Pacers win from being eliminated from the playoffs. With Saturday’s 105-102 win over the conference leading Cleveland Cavaliers, the Bulls finish 7-1 against against the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, 3-1 over the Cavs.

Who figured when Thomas Paine famously wrote, “There are the times that try men’s souls,” he may have been looking toward Fred Hoiberg and the Bulls’ 2015-16 season.

“It’s tough, tough,” Hoiberg was saying at practice before the Bulls were to play in Miami Thursday. “I’ve always been a guy that…as a long shot to make it in this league, …

Sometimes you can hold your tongue and say the right thing, the political thing, for just so long. And this was just too much for Jimmy Butler, what with the Bulls shockingly uncompetitive 115-107 loss Wednesday to the going nowhere New York Knicks, the Bulls outrebounded a stunning 53-34, giving up 52 percent shooting and 56 percent on threes, trailing …

The Bulls haven’t been kicked out of the playoffs or had their team shut down quite yet, but it’s perhaps getting dangerously close.
