First place, baby!

OK, perhaps it’s a bit too soon to celebrate being undefeated after the Bulls sweat-it-out 92-88 win Tuesday at the United Center over the Memphis Grizzlies in the preseason opener.

“Choppy,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau offered about a stuttering start and then a big third quarter before a group of regular irregulars shot one for 21 in …

When the Bulls took the court and opened the preseason against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday at the United Center, they did so with a different look.

The most significant change, of course, was that Derrick Rose remains on the sideline as he rehabs a torn ACL. With Rose out, Kirk Hinrich started at point guard in his return to …

How about Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 21st at home against the Lakers? Nah, too early.

What about the Heat’s first trip into the United Center right after the All-Star break February 21? Probably still too soon.

OK, what about Derrick Rose playing his first game of the 2012-13 season at home Saturday, March 2 against the Brooklyn …

Well, maybe it doesn’t look that bad for the Bulls in the 2012-13 season, after all.

It’s not good, mind you, at least as long as Derrick Rose is recovering from knee surgery, which should be at least half the season. You lose the league MVP or your star and you get worse.

Chicago’s Jimmy Butler and Malcolm Thomas were among 13 players selected to receive 2012 NBA Summer League All-Star status. Voting was done by NBA TV and various NBA scouts as the games came to an end this past weekend in Las Vegas.

For Butler, it may have been an early indication that he’s ready to take on a bigger role …

He wishes he were more like Amar’e Stoudemire, and he’s told he could be another Taj Gibson. But Bulls summer leaguer Malcolm Thomas is just trying to be a defensive role player who finds a spot on the end of the Bulls bench this season.

And he probably has the best chance among the Bulls NBA Summer League players, who …

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 …

In the end for the Bulls Thursday and for the 2011-12 season, it was a game they weren’t supposed to win that they left shocked they lost.

Sort of the way this whole season went.

The Bulls had lost Derrick Rose, were still without Joakim Noah, had Taj Gibson playing through a sprained ankle, saw Luol Deng leave early in …

It seems fashionable lately to not care much about the Bulls. Yes, they are trailing the Philadelphia 76ers just 3-2 in the opening playoff series with Game 6 in Philadelphia Thursday (6:00 p.m. CT | CSN & NBA TV | ESPN 1000 AM).

But the notion is without Derrick Rose, gone for the playoffs with a torn ACL and Joakim …
