Carmelo Anthony is not going anywhere as a free agent this summer. That’s because next summer LeBron James is going to join him in New York.

Yes, the heck with leading stories four months in advance of free agency. I’m going with 16 months. After all, it’s then easier for everyone to forget if you get it wrong.

Talk about your New York minute.

It’s been said as the time between the light turning green and a New Yorker blowing the car horn. It’s lately been the time between when an NBA game starts and the Knicks contemplating the postgame meal.

It was the time Sunday in the Bulls’ eventual 109-90 victory that Joakim Noah had three assists …

One of the most popular players in Bulls history returned Friday in the final preseason game. He didn’t start much for the Bulls and his name won’t appear on any banners.

But the United Center audience greeted Nate Robinson warmly when he entered the game to open the second quarter.

“This is something special to me just because of the …

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.

It may not be the best of times for the Bulls Saturday in Brooklyn, but Game 7’s are the best of times in sport. No more time to improve, no backs to the wall or it being a long season or another game. You can get rid of the worst of times quickly.

It reflects the best—or perhaps worst—in sports …

The NBA, really, features more great plays than any other sport. They’re fun, and, after all, it is a game and games are entertainment. But there are different kinds of great plays. Some are, “Hey, look at me,” great plays,” fabulously acrobatic dunks that leave you gasping in amazement at the sheer individual ability and splendor.

And some are, “Hey, …

It looks like the Bulls are better than the Lakers, which would have been a good thing in 1987 or before the start of this season.

“We have a good team,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau after a fun night at the United Center with a howling, stomping, dancing crowd that enjoyed more than a 95-83 win over Kobe, Dwight, …

It felt like Bulls/Knicks Friday all over again when it really mattered. When Michael Jordan was in the face of Xavier McDaniel when he was bullying Scottie Pippen. When Pippen was dunking and stepping over a supine Patrick Ewing and then screaming invective at Spike Lee. John Starks dunking on Jordan and then Jordan, Pippen and Horace Grant stuffing Charles …

Maybe Saturday’s Bulls 93-85 victory over the East leading New York Knicks wasn’t quite as good as it gets, but it was as good as it’s been this season for the Bulls.

Not only was it just the second victory over a team with a winning record. But it was the team coming off a blowout win in Miami and …

It was the talk of the offseason in the NBA, the incredible accumulation of talent in Los Angeles. The Bulls Saturday get a look at it, yes, when they play….the Clippers?

“We have a chance,” former Bull and Clippers leading scorer Jamal Crawford was saying after Clippers practice Friday. “This is one of the best teams in the league, honestly. …
