Chicago looms below him seemingly awaiting an answer as Derrick Rose sits there into the night in his downtown high rise apartment seeking his own answers, about his future, his game, the next great moment.

Remember when the Bulls looked like potential NBA champions, scoring impressively, shooting the ball as well as they have in years, a deep bench coming in to grab the baton from the starters and race ahead to finish off teams, a conference best record with the only loss in overtime?
Oh, right. That was Friday.
And then came Saturday when …

The NBA sure knows how to start a party. This one is the 2014-15 regular season NBA celebration, and for the Bulls it begins with a bang in New York against the Knicks October 29 and then for the Bulls’ home opener against LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers Halloween night, October 31.

The NBA draft overall has not been particularly kind to the Bulls.
Sure, it did help them to all their six championships with the drafting of Michael Jordan in 1984. And it did produce the only other MVP in franchise history with Derrick Rose in 2008. There was a big one with Scottie Pippen in 1987 and later residuals from …

This 2013-14 Bulls season that ended Tuesday night at the United Center in a 75-69 loss to the Washington Wizards — the third straight Bulls home loss in this 4-1 Wizards’ playoff win — probably couldn’t have ended any other way.
The overachieving, hard working, never-give-up band had Joakim Noah limping through 43 minutes on a swollen knee and Taj …

So what’s next for the Bulls after yet another disappointing close to the season, a second first round exit losing to a lower seed.
In 2012, it was Derrick Rose’s devastating injury in the first game of the playoffs and then the six-game loss. Last season, it was the thrilling first round series and seventh game victory in Brooklyn before …

As playoff slogans go, the Bulls have completed half. They’re going home after Sunday’s discouraging 98-89 Game 4 loss to the Washington Wizards. Now the Bulls have to win.
“You can’t put it on any one guy,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau as his team was badly outplayed, especially from the start, for the fourth consecutive game. “It’s our team, …
