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?”

“He …

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 …

Training camp is past with the two-a-day practices. There are no more relatively meaningless preseason games. It’s a normal 82-game season. Yes, it’s time to begin the regular season for the Bulls Wednesday in the United Center against the Sacramento Kings. And while everyone is relieved, perhaps no one will be more so than Taj Gibson.

Because once the Bulls …

After all those mostly underperforming “M’s,” — Minnesota, Milwaukee and Memphis — the Bulls get a look at a real contender Tuesday at the United Center, the Western Conference champion Oklahoma City Thunder.

Though mostly overshadowed by the Lakers and their high profile additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, most around the NBA still consider the Thunder the favorites …

First place, baby!

OK, perhaps it’s a bit too soon to celebrate being undefeated after the Bulls sweat-it-out 92-88 win Tuesday at the United Center over the Memphis Grizzlies in the preseason opener.

“Choppy,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau offered about a stuttering start and then a big third quarter before a group of regular irregulars shot one for 21 in …

Oct 9

When the Bulls took the court and opened the preseason against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday at the United Center, they did so with a different look.

The most significant change, of course, was that Derrick Rose remains on the sideline as he rehabs a torn ACL. With Rose out, Kirk Hinrich started at point guard in his return to …
