It was the first round of the playoffs, the Bulls on the road and with a chance to get on an underdog run in the playoffs despite losing the opening game. It seems if they just had that one more guy who was sitting there on the team bench, looking pretty good, but still not playing. If only get could …

Really, what is more appropriate for this Bulls 2012-13 season than to open the playoffs with Chicago defending the Brooklyn Nets’ only All-Star with one of the league’s oldest players, Nazr Mohammed, who barely played the first half of the season when he averaged less than a point and shot 19 percent before the All-Star break.

“It was the master …

One of the most successful and unexpected NBA champions didn’t have a so-called star player.

The leading scorer averaged well below 20 points per game, though they had four players averaging in double figures. The best player and only All-Star was a center who couldn’t score. Their power forward preferred to shoot jump shots and their best perimeter defender was …

The Bulls will open the 2013 NBA Playoffs 7 p.m. CT Saturday in Brooklyn at the new Barclays Center, the Nets’ first ever playoff game in Brooklyn and first major professional sports playoff game in Brooklyn since the 1956 World Series.

While the Bulls have been to the playoff seven of the last eight seasons with a conference finals appearance …

This Bulls team never quite has been the fancy Ferrari or Lexus or Corvette, the dynamic machine that exudes grace and style with extraordinary speed.

It could motor, especially when Derrick Rose was at the controls. But it’s been mostly reliable and strong, perhaps a little lumbering like a Volvo or Buick. But effective, nonetheless, until lately with some sputtering …

The Bulls’ 97-88 loss Friday to the Toronto Raptors, in a sense, celebrated a great American tradition. Some 200 years ago, Americans invaded Canada in the guise of liberation that even then former president Thomas Jefferson declared would be little more difficulty than “a matter or matching.”

So coming off one of their most impressive wins of the season Thursday …

Carmelo Anthony is one of the elite players in the NBA, a top contender for league Most Valuable Player and one of the NBA’s highest paid players at almost $20 million annually. J.R. Smith is one of the league’s top athletes, a sometimes erratic personality who is considered a strong candidate to be the league’s top sixth man.

Nate Robinson …

Didn’t we just do this? Hottest team in the league on an historic winning streak in the United Center with a top MVP candidate.

This time Thursday on national TNT it’s the Knicks with 13 consecutive wins and with perhaps the hottest individual player as well in Carmelo Anthony, leading the league in scoring after five straight games of at …

Not that the Bulls should have won Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Raptors with their three best front court defenders, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Luol Deng, all out injured and the Raptors leading by double digits every quarter and by 16 points with 8:22 left in the game.

But when Nate Robinson fired up a desperation three pointer from …

If this Bulls/Detroit Pistons series of recent years becomes a TV show, perhaps they can call it “Eighteen is Enough” as the Pistons Sunday finally ended the Bulls 18-game winning streak with a mostly unremarkable 99-85 victory.

And if this Bulls regular season should get TV treatment, perhaps it becomes “Thirteen is Enough,” which is the number of different starting …
