So now what about Booz?
Derrick Rose on Thursday became the 12th Bull and first since 1998 to be named a starter for the NBA All-Star team with the official announcement on the TNT pregame show.
Rose, an All-Star reserve last season, joins Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire and Dwight Howard as Eastern Conference starters. Boston’s Doc Rivers has …

That was a very big win for the Bulls on Monday, 96-84 in Memphis.
Not necessarily because it was Martin Luther King Day, though it’s an honor to win at the site of the primary celebration. And, really, it’s not a particularly good Grizzlies team, just 19-22 and riddled with selfishness that’s likely to lead to the team’s breakup after …

With all the elements of Tuesday’s exciting win in Houston and Derrick Rose’s transcendent fourth quarter, no one quite got around to getting into that last sequence when Rose was shooting a free throws with .08 left and the Bulls ahead by two.
Rose missed the first, so he couldn’t close the game. Kyle Korver then went up to Rose …

The United States sometimes can be a baffling place of mixed messages. We condemn cigarette smoking. Yet, we subsidize tobacco farming. We scream for business incentives, yet watch quietly as the same businesses outsource jobs all over the world to enhance their corporate profits.

Hey, it was a classic of a sort.
And perhaps that is the most appropriate reference because this Great Free Agent Chase of 2010 has become something of a farce.
Now, the Bulls, Miami Heat, New York Knicks, …

Talk about your fireworks. This July 4th weekend may be about to produce some huge sparks—and duds—around the NBA as the free agent beauty pageant is about to conclude with LeBron James Saturday closing his series of free agency meetings in Akron with the hometown Cavs and finally the Bulls.
He’s expected to be wearing his best sweatpants.
The big …

Free agency Day 1: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
Yes, I believe that was first written when Charles Dickens was unable to lure the top free agent chimney sweep at the time as he instead moved into a high-rise condo near the Bastille.
This big LeBron free agency is actually becoming a tale …

As the Great One said, “And away we go.”
No, not LeBron, the real Great One, Jackie Gleason. Of course, that may be bad karma here as he went to Miami.
No, I don’t believe LeBron is going to Miami to form some superhero trio of Flash, Batman and Robin, also known as Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh, …

So what happens next?
The Bulls Tuesday in losing the opening round playoff series to the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 concluded what generally was a successful season with a second straight 41-41 record and first round playoff elimination. Yes, even with another first round out. This was to be the appetizer.
But given injuries that cost Joakim Noah 18 games and …

Eight is enough. But the losses look like they will keep coming for the Bulls.
The losing streak reached eight Tuesday in Memphis in a curious 104-97 defeat to the Grizzlies without the Bulls’ four top scorers. Yet, the Bulls came back from 25 down to get within four with 3:39 left and twice had chances to cut the lead …
