We know the Lakers are not going to win 70 games. But what about the Bulls?

It’s 2-0 now with Friday’s dominating 115-86 win in Cleveland. And it’s now five consecutive home games ahead with the Hornets Saturday, without rookie sensation Anthony Davis after he suffered a mild concussion Friday, rebuilding Orlando Tuesday and then a national TNT game against …

I’ll admit I had trouble with that sneaker commercial some years back that referenced Dwyane Wade. You remember: Fall seven times, stand up eight.

How, after all, was he getting up that eighth time when he hadn’t fallen yet? I probably should have consulted Phil Jackson, given the apparent Zen interpretation of struggles that require resilience and perseverance. And that …

Derrick Rose could possibly play Thursday against the Boston Celtics, though I personally doubt he will. And there’s apparently no misunderstanding between the Bulls and coach Tom Thibodeau regarding the discussions on Thibodeau’s future with the team.

Those were some of the issues that Bulls General Manager Gar Forman addressed before a private team fundraising auction and dinner at the …

Who knew March NBA Coach of the Month Tom Thibodeau also was an amateur theologian? Though perhaps that’s what happens when you lose a second game in a row for the first time in almost 14 months, which the Bulls did Monday in a 99-93 loss to the Houston Rockets.

Although Richard Hamilton returned from his shoulder injury to start …

The Bulls’ 83-71 win over the Detroit Pistons Friday is one of those NBA games that might be termed ugly for relatively poor shooting by both teams, few fast breaks, five of 23 on threes combined by both teams and limited enthusiasm from the home crowd as the Bulls didn’t trail after the first quarter.

But the game was really …

The C.J. is for Charles Jr. I looked it up for the first time after the Bulls’ 89-80 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night in which Watson led the Bulls with 20 points and four of eight three pointers.

I’m getting the feeling the way things are going we better get to know Watson a little better as he …

Late Tuesday afternoon, Derrick Rose was rear-ended by a Saturn. Later that evening, the Miami Heat felt like they had rings run around them in an overtime loss to the Orlando Magic.

Welcome to the next chapter of the battle for the Eastern Conference universe Wednesday at the United Center. The Miami Heat are already moaning about having to play …

The NBA’s annual midseason gala is going to have a distinct Bulls tint with Derrick Rose among the Eastern Conference starters, Luol Deng in his first All-Star appearance an Eastern Conference reserve, and Tom Thibodeau coaching the East team.

Joining Thibodeau will be his staff of assistant coaches, Ron Adams, Adrian Griffin, Mike Wilhelm, Ed Pinckney, Rick Brunson and Andy …

The Bulls concluded their first half of the 2011-12 season Wednesday with a dominant 110-91 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in which Joakim Noah had his first ever triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists, the first triple-double for a Bulls center since Artis Gilmore in 1977.

Call it “party time,” as Noah left with his teammates to …

I know the Bulls love to talk about having enough to win no matter who is out. It’s coach Tom Thibodeau’s mantra, and it’s been one of the best things he’s done. So there are no excuses, no feeling sorry for yourself, showing that all things are possible no matter what anyone says. It may be the biggest reason the …
