Luol Deng always has been a man, a United Nations Refuge Humanitarian of the Year award winner, the NBA’s Sportsmanship award winner, an ICON role model award from a major entertainment publication and various community service commendations.

Now Deng has to be, “the Man,” that much identified, if somewhat of a contradictory designation in a team sport.

“It’s something I’ve …

Well, at least they didn’t have to go by bus.

Then it really would have been a zoo compared to the bizarre circus the Bulls just endured over the last two weeks.

The Bulls Saturday concluded their annual November road trip, almost 7,000 miles through the Rockies, Derrick Rose’s second season-ending injury, which left a much greater mountain to climb, …

Luol Deng never really had a summer like this where he was so excited about basketball. Deng traveled extensively, but more than ever he spoke regularly with his buddy and teammate, Derrick Rose. Rose mostly continued his rehabilitation from ACL surgery in Los Angeles, and while Deng did clinics and appearances all around the world, he was constantly on the …

The Bulls were grieving.

But life and the NBA doesn’t stop for that.

That’s what we may know soon as Derrick Rose undergoes knee surgery Monday, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday before the Bulls played the Clippers.

And then he was gone, again.

So now we know. It’s bad for Derrick Rose, but not the worst, not the dreaded anterior cruciate ligament tear like Rose suffered in April 2012 from which he’d made a gallant recovery.

Until Friday in Portland, anyway, when Rose, as the Bulls announced Saturday afternoon after an MRI, sustained a medial meniscus tear …

The Bulls were chased out of Chicago by the circus, and what do you know, they couldn’t get away from the clown.

Yes, it was Nate Robinson, the team’s favorite former prankster from last season, whose two three-point shots to open the fourth quarter led to a 13-0 run and a 97-87 victory for the Denver Nuggets.

“We got caught …

If you think Toronto mayor Rob Ford had a bad week…

Well, the Bulls’ next week is looking like it may have some cracks in it as well.

The starting lineup changes with the news that shooting guard Jimmy Butler is out “week-to-week” with a turf toe injury. Butler did not accompany the team for the Western Conference road …

It’s the run and shoot NBA again. Thirteen teams for just the second time in the last 19 years are averaging at least 100 points per game.

There are more than 20 players averaging at least 20 points per game. Last season there were nine. Contending teams like the Clippers, Thunder, Rockets and Heat are playing games to 120 points. …

Time to start over now, Derrick Rose was saying after the Bulls Friday completed an 8-0 preseason with a 94-89 come from behind victory over the Denver Nuggets.
