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 …

You don’t figure much that happens in the first three to five minutes of an NBA game is going to matter all that much or be worth repeating. It’s supposedly that last five minutes that matters.

And in defeating the Boston Celtics Tuesday 100-89, the Bulls weren’t even leading in the first five minutes.

They basically blew open the game …

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 …

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. …

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 …

Maybe Luol Deng should go ahead and have that wrist surgery. Yes, it’s just NBA Summer League. But Bulls second-year small forward Jimmy Butler showed in Tuesday’s 79-74 opening loss to the Boston Celtics in Las Vegas he may be ready to take that big first step toward being an NBA producer.

“The coaches tell me I have to stay …

1. New Orleans: Anthony Davis, Kentucky. There’s been so little discussion about Davis because he’s the consensus No. 1, if not personally exciting. When Rose was top pick there still was debate about whether the pick would be Michael Beasley. When LeBron was No. 1, there was discussion about LeBron because many thought he was the king of England. Davis …

When last we left our Bulls, after a second consecutive loss for the first time in more than a year, they were dangling from a metaphorical rope that apparently represented their suddenly shaky bond of excellence. Would Derrick return and lift them? Could Lu keep it up and pull his teammates back from the brink? Was Rip torn? We had …

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 …

The conventional wisdom — and if it’s accepted it’s not particularly knowledgeable — is that Derrick Rose isn’t going to repeat as MVP. It generally seems to have been decided the Bulls played well without him and he missed too many games.

But in scoring 29 points Wednesday to carry the Bulls to a 96-89 road victory over the San …
