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.

Derrick Rose sliced and diced, he slashed and dashed. The warmth from the community covered him like a familiar blanket in the verbal salutes.

The new Jimmy Butler was introduced Thursday to start against the Lakers.

You know, All-Star Jimmy Butler.

“It’s an honor,” Butler told reporters before the game in his first comments about being named a first time All-Star. “I think everybody would love to make the All-Star team in their career. I feel like I’ve come a long way since I …
