Now, this has nothing to do with the Cavs losing to the Celtics on opening night Tuesday. Actually, LeBron James was terrific, if very much alone, in a magnificent fourth quarter in trying to rally the Cavs back in a game the Celtics mostly dominated. Hello, Mike Brown! Are you awake yet? Put in a play. Enough of the LeBron …

So what’s the view of the Bulls from the outside coming into this season? It seems actually a bit more optimistic from the Vegas guys than it does from the NBA guys. Which I actually think is a good thing for the Bulls as the Vegas guys’ jobs depend on paying closer attention to all the teams.
The NBA released …

Bulls and Bucks Saturday night in Green Bay. Derrick Rose may miss his second straight pre season game with an achilles and ankle injury. No need to rush him back in the lineup if he’s not 100%.
We’ll have updates and tweets throughout the game and it will be televised on WGN.

Though that also raises the …

The Bulls Saturday had a moment of silence for their first coach and longtime broadcaster Johnny Kerr and one of the stars of their great 1970’s teams, Norm Van Lier. Both died Thursday, and the Bulls players they so loved and agonized over couldn’t have provided …

It seems a waste, sometimes, to go up to some of the Bulls players after a loss, like Tuesday’s 107-100 defeat in Houston.
Invariably—and this time it was Luol Deng—someone will say, as Deng did, “We weren’t getting enough stops.”
And everyone will write it down as if it is some profound declaration.

Bulls practice here Monday morning, in the wake of a three game winning streak, seemed serious and intense with plenty of competitive noise. Afterward, coach Vinny Del Negro had Derrick Rose aside, demonstrating a shooting technique.

Chris Paul was incredible assisiting on the Hornets opening seven baskets and 9 of the first 11 buckets. He is so good, he is worth the price …
