Now the fun begins, finally.
It’s LeBron, Wade and Bosh–the so-called Three AmEgos–at the United Center Saturday, following one of those rare, meaningful regular season games, as the Bulls disposed of the Indiana Pacers Friday, 99-86.

Derrick Rose, the 2008 No. 1 overall draft pick, outplayed the 2010 No. 1 overall draft pick John Wall in front of their college coach, John Calipari. Kirk Hinrich was unable to contain Luol Deng in a curious defensive matchup, Joakim Noah and rookie Omer Asik formed a nice pair of defensive skyscrapers working together, and the Bulls got their …

It’s been a long, and somewhat, uncertain journey for Derrick Rose, who helps lead the USA Basketball team as it begins play Saturday against Croatia in the World Basketball Championships in Turkey.
A year ago at the early tryouts in Las Vegas, Rose was uncertain and badly outplayed head to head by Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, who also is on …

Derrick Rose may not have had a big game statistically speaking when the USA National Team took on France in an exhibition game Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, but it didn’t bother him in the least.
“I feel good about how we played and we got the win. That’s the biggest thing,” said Rose of USA’s 86-55 victory, in …

It turns out the first call Bulls General Manager Gar Forman made to start his coaching search could have been his last. Just five to six days into the process, Forman reached out to Tom Thibodeau, who on Wednesday was named the team’s 18th head coach in franchise history.
“All of us know about his defensive credentials, but as we …

Stupid time officially began about seven minutes after the Cavs were knocked out of playoffs Thursday in losing 94-85 to the Boston Celtics to fall four games to two in the Eastern semifinals.
Chad Ford of ESPN reported he’d heard from three league general managers who said they now believe James will leave the Cavs as a result of the …
