I’ve been hearing the Bulls talk about this new offense this season, about motion and read and react and subtle alternations of their schemes.
Pssst, c’mere. I’ll tell you a little secret.
The offense is named Derrick Rose.
“I’m not holding back,” said Rose, who was brilliant in the Bulls’ second half 103-98 comeback win over the Indiana Pacers with …

With Derrick Rose, now after four Bulls preseason games, it’s perhaps just about looking for flaws. And, amazingly enough, there don’t seem to be any.
“As long as I’m playing the way I’m playing and we’re winning games, I couldn’t care less about getting back to my regular self,” Rose said Wednesday after the Bulls’ easy 96-81 victory over the …

Derrick Rose still is healthy.
But the Bulls Monday in running away from the Memphis Grizzlies 106-87 for a second consecutive preseason victory are feeling good and pretty much are making this Rose watch theme moot.
“The first half I was kind of jittery,” said Rose, who played an uneventful 23 minutes with once again 13 points and four of …

Joakim Noah isn’t quiet much. He’s not Nate Robinson loud. But there’s often some sort of cacophony rising around Noah, as there was almost throughout Saturday’s Bulls opening night exhibition game win in Indianapolis.
“Woooooooo,” Noah bellowed as he sat on the bench with his blue blazer over, well, an outfit that traditionally doesn’t blend with a blue blazer.

Now that you’ve seen Derrick Rose challenge 7-2 Roy Hibbert at the rim, get knocked down and bounce up to shoot his free throws in Saturday’s 82-76 Bulls win over the Indiana Pacers.
Now that you’ve seen him crossover George Hill, leaving Hill reaching and the entire Pacers’ defense coming at Rose and Rose pounded …

Bulls second year point guard Marquis Teague is going to be doing a little pitching Wednesday.
He’ll be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Cubs/Reds game at Wrigley Field. But his best and most important pitch will come a few hours before when Teague addresses about 100 youngsters at the James Jordan Boys and Girls Club as part …

Bulls second round draft pick Erik Murphy used to be Johnny Manziel. Well, without the Heisman trophy, of course. And he didn’t exactly run quite as fast. But he can identify with the talented Texas A&M quarterback better than most.
“You’re 20 years old, a young kid just having fun, like 95 percent of college kids are doing. But some …

Tony Snell, the Bulls’ first round draft pick, was talking about his game and how he expects to play in the NBA.
“I feel I’m a shooting guard,” Snell was saying. “I can play both the shooting guard and small forward. But I feel I’m more a shooting guard for now until I get bigger and stronger and then can …

Bulls summer league thus far, with a 2-0 record after Monday’s impressive 93-81 victory over the Denver Nuggets, has been something of a fairy tale start.
Call it Goudelock and the Four Bulls.
And then Goudelock proclaimed:
“This shot is too short.”
And then he hit another and said,
“This shot is too long.”
And finally he made another in …

It’s tough to be the next great one. Grant Hill and Vince Carter never much cared for that Next Jordan label, and many others have tripped up being advertised as the next Wilt or Russell or Oscar or Magic or Bird.
Mike Dunleavy Jr. as well since being a good shooting, unselfish, ball handling white guy, well, you have to …
