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 …

The Bulls 126-115 victory Sunday over the Los Angeles Lakers was the undercard of the main event, the Kobe Bryant Farewell Tour marking Bryant’s final game in Chicago.

So if you think the Bulls defense has been bad….

Consider that the best defender on the floor Sunday night in the annual NBA All Star game probably was the Bulls’ Pau Gasol, shooting four of the seven total free throws taken in the game and second in rebounds per minute in the abomination 196-173 Western Conference victory.

The total …

The story in some respects Sunday at the first NBA All-Star game played outside the United States is the story of the international sports icon, NBA champion and perennial All-Star who probably is playing in his last NBA All-Star game.

Yes, Kobe Bryant, also.

”Just proud, proud and humbled by everything I’ve been able to accomplish,” Bulls center Pau Gasol …

E’Twaun Moore has got to be some kind of super hero, at least the way he played Wednesday in the Bulls 107-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

First, there was ‘Twaun to the rescue with Jimmy Butler missing his first game of the season with a sore knee, Moore scoring 13 of his career high 24 points in the first …

There’s a famous book about an alleged patient who had multiple personalities, sometimes self assured, assertive and successful and then the next day listless to the point of being fatigued, anxious and distracted.
