The year 1949 was a turning point in the life of 13-year-old Jerry Reinsdorf. In the Jewish religion, a boy has his Bar Mitzvah at age 13. It is considered the time honored traditional age of manhood, when by Jewish law being responsible for your actions passes from the parents to the child.

Young Jerry realized there also was an …

Jerry Reinsdorf says, as we all understand, it’s never like the first time. There was little with the ownership of the Bulls that could surpass that first Bulls championship in 1991, the uncertainty, the anticipation, even the relief after the Game 3 win in Los Angeles that the team would at least be able to get back to Chicago to …

Dwyane Wade is no Michael Jordan. In fact, when Wade Friday met reporters for the first time since signing to play for the Bulls, the Chicago native who grew up in southwest suburban Oak Lawn reiterated he, like all the kids, wanted to be like Mike. And the Bulls.

“This is one of those moments for me that is a …

Nate Thurmond was the missing piece, the final brick for the Bulls first NBA championship tower. Everyone was sure of it, and certainly Bulls owner Arthur Wirtz, who agreed to include the then stunning amount of $500,000 to the Golden State Warriors along with center Cliff Ray and a No. 1 draft pick in trade for Thurmond.

The Bulls had …

The start of the last season of that old Bulls gang we came to both love and despair over so much probably went something like this message, perhaps more understated, unsaid, if also apparent.

It was that you guys have been in this run for five or six years. You haven’t gotten there. We added a center with a championship …

It wasn’t how the Bulls hoped it would be eight years ago when they drafted Derrick Rose and with a future league Most Valuable Player were soon on the verge of the NBA Finals and perhaps another, at least, mini-dynasty.

But it officially ended Wednesday after a 115-105 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers that gave the Bulls a 42-40 record, …

He was one of the brightest young men to come into the NBA, a star, a player who thrilled the Los Angeles franchise, a man admired by his peers and beloved by fans. And Wednesday night that apparently was the end of a marvelous career.

Yes, it may be the final NBA game for…

Young Jerry Reinsdorf was like a lot of kids growing up in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn in the 1940s, pretty much devoted to stickball and the Brooklyn Dodgers. His dad was an itinerant salesman and tinkerer and his mom taking care of the kids. There was extended family around in a crowded household where life was the front stoop …

The Bulls arrived in Houston for Thursday’s TNT nationally televised game—talk about your preseason scheduling assumptions—and basketball was the talk of the city. Not the Bulls and Rockets, though, even with the Bulls’ superior 37-37 record to the Rockets’ 37-38.

Hey, if you are disappointed in the Bulls season, this Rockets team, mostly healthier than last season, also is just …

It’s easy to conclude it was just the woebegone Lakers whom the Bulls defeated impressively Sunday, a 126-115 victory mostly overshadowed by Kobe Bryant’s final game in Chicago. The Lakers are 11-46 and just trying to get all of this over.

So perhaps the Bulls shooting 55.7 percent and 13 of 19 on threes with 30 assists is merely the …
