Joakim Noah, collegiate champion, iconoclast, innovative wardrobe manager with a career 8.9 scoring average his first two seasons, once suspended by his teammates, anthropology who clearly has evolved and is fond of talking about “swag,” is now an NBA All-Star.
Noah landed his first All-Star appearance and was joined by Luol Deng, making his second All-Star appearance.
Yes, the Bulls …

The Bulls should be represented at the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 17 in Houston.
The question is by whom.
My guess is it will be Joakim Noah, but it won’t be determined until next week when the Eastern Conference coaches select the All-Star reserves.
The NBA Thursday on TNT announced the starters for the 62nd annual event.
The Eastern …

That’s it! That’s all you got?
Well, nobody on the Bulls actually said that after a convincing and impressive 96-89 road win Friday over the defending champion Miami Heat. But the Bulls in going to 18-13 essentially said that with their dominant play.
No one is quite writing off the Heat yet as they still lead the Eastern Conference with …

Derrick Rose will be there in Miami Friday when the Bulls get their first crack this season at the defending champion Miami Heat. But it’s not quite the same, obviously, with Rose sidelined likely another few months recovering from his knee injury and surgery.
These were the kind of games you circled the calendar for the last few years, the …

Will Joakim Noah be an All-Star this season?
It’s looking like it will be a close call with the NBA Thursday releasing the second voting returns.
Noah remains seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. The fan voting is for three front court players as the center position was eliminated this season and two backcourt players.
The second results were similar …

Back in Brooklyn, we used to call them “the M&M Boys.” They weren’t actually beloved by all, but we respected them. The Dodgers and Giants had left and the Mets hadn’t come yet. So it was M&M, Mantle and Maris, making the big plays when they were needed.
They’re not likely to be as celebrated, and certainly not in Brooklyn. …

It was a good thing Joakim Noah didn’t add Houston to that list of questionable vacation cities, like Cleveland and Philadelphia, when the Bulls were there last month.
Because based on the first All-Star game returns released by the NBA Thursday, my guess is Noah has a good chance of being added to the team that will play in Houston …

This isn’t looking very good for the Bulls, who fell Tuesday to 8-8 after an 80-76 loss to the Indiana Pacers that, nevertheless, left them in a three-way tie for the Central Division lead.
That would be somewhat the equivalent of being the star of The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas movie. Nice to get top billing, though no one …

It’s been an uncertain start to the season for the 5-5 Bulls, though hardly unexpected without the rehabilitating Derrick Rose. So after one game recently back on the team plane, Joakim Noah, averaging a career high 38.8 minutes per game, was looking for some relaxation and distraction. Noah eyed his favorite backgammon set.
And then he thought, “Where’s Omer?”

It’s a rematch Thursday for the Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Only this time, unfortunately for the Bulls, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are planning to play.
It was just over two weeks ago in the preseason that the Bulls managed a 94-89 win over the defending Western Conference champions who were resting their two main stars. They may have …
