Rasual Butler sat on the bench along the side of the court in the new Amway Arena in Orlando Friday morning after his first practice with the Bulls. It’s probably a place Butler will be getting accustomed to with his new team.
“I have to be honest with myself,” Butler told Chicago media. “These guys are 41-18. They’re already a …

Butler, a 6-7 nine year NBA veteran, is expected to sign a contract for the rest of the season and join the Bulls in Orlando Thursday in time for Friday’s game with the Magic.

I don’t get many questions anymore about John Wall vs. Derrick Rose, and there’ll likely be even fewer after Monday’s Bulls 105-77 win over the Washington Wizards with Rose dominating a mostly invisible Wall.
Did you even know he was in the game?

It looks like that D-League stint will give James Johnson a chance to play.
Just not with the Bulls.
Johnson, the 2009 Bulls’ first round pick at No. 16, was traded Tuesday to the Toronto Raptors for the Miami Heat’s 2011 first round pick the Raptors held from the sign-and-trade deal for Chris Bosh.

As an aside, by the way, I had a long conversation with a veteran Warriors executive before Saturday’s Bulls loss in Oakland, and he wanted to …

Well, that didn’t go so well.
No, not Derrick Rose missing the second of two free throws with 0.8 left Saturday that enabled the Los Angeles Clippers in Vinny Del Negro’s return to escape with a 100-99 win over the Bulls and end the Bulls’ seven-game winning streak.
“I thought I was going to hit them,” Rose said quietly after …

So what now?
Although the Bulls have not been notified, it appears likely now the Orlando Magic will match the $20 million/three-year free agent offer for shooting guard J.J. Redick.
The Orlando Sentinel and Fanhouse with former Sentinel reporter Tim Povtak both reported late Thursday the Magic intend to match the offer and make an announcement Friday.
Orlando hasn’t been …

So why can’t they do that all the time?
Which exactly is what everyone has been asking about this schizophrenic Bulls team that Saturday absolutely dominated one of the league’s best teams and players, the New Orleans Hornets and Chris Paul, in a 97-79 runaway in which the Bulls led by 30 with more than 10 minutes left in the …

So imagine you are on Bourbon Street in New Orleans and no one has actually vomited on you. Surprise, surprise. You’d gone there to listen to the greats of Jazz and Cajun, immortals like Fats Domino and Louis Armstrong and Pete Fountain and Buckwheat Zydeco and Dr. John and who shows up but K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Barry Manilow …
