The signs were there it was going to be a bad day for the Bulls.

The song of the first bird outside the windows at the Bulls downtown Cleveland hotel was a vulture.

“I just had a bad feeling, seeing how we were moving around during the game, moving around before the game,” said Taj Gibson. “Just had a bad …

For a while it was a fun word play and take off on Michael Jordan’s famous two-word press release in 1995: I’m back! And so it was for Derrick Rose, though fitfully without a finish in 2012-13, then sadly after a few weeks in 2013-14 and again last summer with USA Basketball and this season until, alas, he was gone …

The Bulls Monday didn’t slay the giant, though their 99-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal was complete, efficient and impressive.

Derrick Rose had 25 points, five rebounds and five assists, Pau Gasol added 21 points and 10 rebounds, 13 points in the third quarter when the Cavaliers rallied back from a 16-point …

Perhaps you’d say Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler are a basketball version of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the daring and iconoclastic old West figures ready to shoot ‘em up and who definitely draw attention. Though it didn’t end too well for those guys. They do make sweet string music, sort of having the basketball soul of Sam and …

The Bulls will be in Cleveland the first week of May. And everyone knows what that means, 47 degrees, a cold wind off the lake, dark and dank days with heavy overcast, downtown streets torn up with construction and perhaps one or two downtown restaurants open. But no one’s complaining.

“I never thought I’d say this, but I’m very excited …

Derrick Rose says he doesn’t think about it much, and perhaps that’s a good thing. Because Rose is now just a few days away from what could be walking off the court for the first time in a playoff game since May 11, 2011.

“Being in the playoffs is an honor,” Rose was saying after Bulls practice in Manhattan Monday …

Joakim Noah was in the shower Sunday following the Bulls 99-94 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers rapping. There were lyrics that had something to do with Tony Snell. It didn’t seem like Noah was destined for a new career. Pau Gasol munched at a buffet while Jimmy Butler slipped into something with lots of black and white and gray patterns …

What did Magic Johnson call it? Winnin’ Time, right? For the Bulls, amazingly enough, it continues to be Nikola Mirotic time. It’s also enough to say with Mirotic Friday being named NBA Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for the second time this season that Mirotic should be Rookie of the Year.

Really, there aren’t many more unexpected stories this …

Yes, Derrick Rose is injured once again and facing a third knee surgery since May 2012. But, after all, the Bulls had two All-Stars this season not named Derrick Rose. They have a point guard who a few years ago averaged 19.6 per game starting and is the team’s best three point shooter. They have two reserve point guards, one …

Derrick Rose is having surgery again.

Call it the six most feared words for Rose, the Bulls, their fans and the NBA community.

The Bulls’ media release Tuesday night arrived, once again with stunning disappointment and despair:

“Derrick Rose reported today with right knee pain. An exam and subsequent MRI confirmed a medial meniscus tear of the right knee.
