Luol Deng is one of the best players in Bulls franchise history. He is in the top 10 in franchise history in 10 major statistical categories and with this being his 10th season with the Bulls tied with Jerry Sloan and Tom Boerwinkle and behind only Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen in years with the franchise. Deng is behind only …

The Bulls were putting all the pieces in place around the kid. They added some youth, and they had veterans and hoped the way they meshed around the kid could enable them to make a big jump in the standings.

The season began well, but then, shockingly, he was badly injured and gone from the team. So what could you …

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 …

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is known for his serious nature, intense preparation, and consistent drive to make his team better.

His focus is solely on basketball and he rarely strays off topic into anything remotely personal. But a good friend of his, first-year Bobcats coach Steve Clifford, was happy to share a few tidbits on how Thibodeau has impacted his …

The Chicago Bulls know there is always room for improvement.

After a 1-3 start, that’s become even more evident, but Joakim Noah and the Bulls are hopeful that Friday’s game against the winless Utah Jazz at the United Center will help get them moving in the right direction.

“We’re a work in progress,” said Noah following the team’s Friday morning …

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 …

In the pantheon of greatly anticipated exhibition games, oxymoron that it is, Saturday’s in the Indianapolis basketball temple ranks among the most significant, a great welcome back for one of the NBA’s basketball gods.

Or at least most everyone still hopes.

“I’m just playing the same way I normally do,” Derrick Rose promised after Bulls practice Friday, displaying the sort …

It’s not quite for the 2013-14 Bulls “The Last Dance,” Phil Jackson’s famous declaration that the 1997-98 season would be–and was–the last one together for that championship core of the 1990’s Bulls.

But Jackson, the brilliant motivator and strategist, successfully was able to unite an aging Bulls team for a successful run, in part, because of the way he portrayed …

They were bursting with pride around the Berto Center Saturday morning. All the big guys were there, sitting on folding chairs at one end of the court. They all were watching the kid, their kid in a sense, though not so much a kid anymore, take his metaphorical first steps, Derrick’s Rose first true full scrimmaging with his teammates since …
