Will Joakim Noah be an All-Star this season?
It’s looking like it will be a close call with the NBA Thursday releasing the second voting returns.
Noah remains seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players. The fan voting is for three front court players as the center position was eliminated this season and two backcourt players.
The second results were similar …

Each time you watch the Bulls you can feel proud of them and their behavior. Just like Tuesday, Christmas Day, in the United Center. The Bulls players honored the holiday like most Americans by taking the day off.
Unfortunately, the NBA had the gall to schedule the Bulls to play a game. Well, the Bulls showed the NBA and the …

The Bulls now can say they’ve only been uncompetitive twice this season. But when they are it really looks bad as the Atlanta Hawks Saturday overwhelmed a seemingly tired and surprisingly casual Bulls team 92-75.
It was the second fewest points the Bulls scored this season, and not exactly against one of the better defensive teams.
It was so bad …

It was a good thing Joakim Noah didn’t add Houston to that list of questionable vacation cities, like Cleveland and Philadelphia, when the Bulls were there last month.
Because based on the first All-Star game returns released by the NBA Thursday, my guess is Noah has a good chance of being added to the team that will play in Houston …

Early in the Bulls’ 93-88 win over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday, Joakim Noah bit the head off a live rooster. Later in the first half, Noah drew a technical foul for explaining to 76ers forward Evan Turner how one man launches another to the moon. And before the evening was over, Noah operated on himself without anesthetic.
Well, he did …

How’s that coaching bromide go? You’ve got to know when to hold em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away, know when to take Nate out…
Or something like that.
Not to blame Nate Robinson for the Bulls 93-89 loss to the Houston Rockets Wednesday. Actually, if not for Robinson’s second half boost and one of the …

It’s been an uncertain start to the season for the 5-5 Bulls, though hardly unexpected without the rehabilitating Derrick Rose. So after one game recently back on the team plane, Joakim Noah, averaging a career high 38.8 minutes per game, was looking for some relaxation and distraction. Noah eyed his favorite backgammon set.
And then he thought, “Where’s Omer?”

There was a lot of “expert” speculation the Bulls were a .500 team without Derrick Rose. They are now at 5-5 after a 102-94 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday.
Though the way the Bulls are playing, a fourth consecutive game giving up more than 100 points for the first time under coach Tom Thibodeau, a rare back to …

We knew the Bulls would miss Derrick Rose’s scoring and ability to make big plays. And it was obvious again in Monday’s 101-95 loss to the Boston Celtics when the Bulls came back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit to within three and then missed five shots and committed three turnovers.
“We had our chances,” agreed Joakim Noah, who had …

It’s a rematch Thursday for the Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Only this time, unfortunately for the Bulls, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are planning to play.
It was just over two weeks ago in the preseason that the Bulls managed a 94-89 win over the defending Western Conference champions who were resting their two main stars. They may have …
