He’s back?

Derrick Rose Tuesday in his first official NBA game in 18 months since reconstructive knee surgery shot four of 15 with one of seven on threes, added four assists but five turnovers in a 107-95 loss to the Miami Heat in which the Bulls trailed by 25 points in the fourth quarter.

“If anything I’m disappointed in the …

The Bulls preseason, really, their whole season, was to be the story of Derrick Rose’s return from knee surgery and his subsequent play.

That, remarkably, has become something of an ancillary concern with the team’s 104-95 victory Wednesday over the Thunder in Wichita, Kansas and another superlative Rose game. Rose scored 26 points including 13 in the fourth quarter with …

OK, the Bulls are ready. Anyone else?

Still another week until the regular season begins and two more exhibition games? Geez.

The Bulls Monday made quick and painless work of the Milwaukee Bucks, leading by 16 points less than six minutes into the game, by 23 at halftime and by fewer than 10 points for all of 5.2 seconds late, …

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 …

Here we go again?

“It flared up on me,” Joakim Noah said before Friday’s preseason game against the Indiana Pacers after the Bulls earlier in the day said he would be held back another week due to his groin tweak. “Just need a little bit more time. I wanna be out there; we’re looking good. I gotta be healthy. It …

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.

“Wooooooooo,” …

Nazr Mohammed has heard all this talk about the hole in the donut that is the Bulls’ upcoming season, a mound of sweetness with something missing in the middle, presumably a backup center.

But Mohammed says the Bulls should not worry.

“That’s how I look at it,” says the 15-year veteran from Kenwood Academy who’ll turn 36 next month. “That …

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 …

Probably someone in this stats infested sports world measures it, though I haven’t seen it yet. But the Bulls probably just completed the best ever 45-win regular season with a second round playoff loss.

Of course, they knew they’d be missing for part, and it turned out all, their best player and a former league MVP, Derrick Rose. But then …
