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 …

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 …

How about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 21st at home against the Lakers? Nah, too early.

What about the Heat’s first trip into the United Center right after the All-Star break February 21? Probably still too soon.

OK, what about Derrick Rose playing his first game of the 2012-13 season at home Saturday, March 2 against the Brooklyn …

Well, maybe it doesn’t look that bad for the Bulls in the 2012-13 season, after all.

It’s not good, mind you, at least as long as Derrick Rose is recovering from knee surgery, which should be at least half the season. You lose the league MVP or your star and you get worse.

There are no shortcuts: Bulls go from …

The Bulls will not match the restricted free agent offer to Omer Asik, allowing Asik to join the Houston Rockets.

“We have decided not to match Houston’s offer sheet for restricted free agent Omer Asik,” Bulls general manager Gar Forman said Tuesday morning. “It was a difficult decision because Omer did a nice job for us. Matching the offer for …

He wishes he were more like Amar’e Stoudemire, and he’s told he could be another Taj Gibson. But Bulls summer leaguer Malcolm Thomas is just trying to be a defensive role player who finds a spot on the end of the Bulls bench this season.

And he probably has the best chance among the Bulls NBA Summer League players, who …

And nooowwwwwwwwww, the starting lineup for your Chicago Bulls:

At forward from Duke, 6-9, No. 5, Carlos Boozer!

A 6-8 forward from Mt. Zion Christian Academy, No. 6, Tracy McGrady!

The man in the middle from Florida, 6-11, No. 13, Joakim Noah!

At guard, 6-7 from Connecticut, No. 32, Richard Hamilton!

From Chicago, a 6-2 guard, No. 2… Jannero Pargo?…

In the end for the Bulls Thursday and for the 2011-12 season, it was a game they weren’t supposed to win that they left shocked they lost.

Sort of the way this whole season went.

The Bulls had lost Derrick Rose, were still without Joakim Noah, had Taj Gibson playing through a sprained ankle, saw Luol Deng leave early in …

Maybe this star crossed Bulls season, played so much without its stars, could not have ended any other way Thursday than with the Bulls letting a three-point lead with 25.8 seconds left disintegrate in a maze of missed opportunities, questionable circumstances and numbing decisions.

The result was a stunning 79-78 Philadelphia 76ers win with Andre Iguodala, a 45 percent fourth …
