The year 1949 was a turning point in the life of 13-year-old Jerry Reinsdorf. In the Jewish religion, a boy has his Bar Mitzvah at age 13. It is considered the time honored traditional age of manhood, when by Jewish law being responsible for your actions passes from the parents to the child.

Young Jerry realized there also was an …

Jerry Reinsdorf says, as we all understand, it’s never like the first time. There was little with the ownership of the Bulls that could surpass that first Bulls championship in 1991, the uncertainty, the anticipation, even the relief after the Game 3 win in Los Angeles that the team would at least be able to get back to Chicago to …

The start of the last season of that old Bulls gang we came to both love and despair over so much probably went something like this message, perhaps more understated, unsaid, if also apparent.

It was that you guys have been in this run for five or six years. You haven’t gotten there. We added a center with a championship …

Bill Wennington said the players from the 1995-96 Bulls team that set a record with 72 wins don’t sit around and wait to drink Champagne once it’s clear the record will stand another year.

Heck, he said he didn’t even know Miami Dolphins runner Mercury Morris made that an annual, infamous ritual to mark the continuation of the record for …

Young Jerry Reinsdorf was like a lot of kids growing up in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn in the 1940s, pretty much devoted to stickball and the Brooklyn Dodgers. His dad was an itinerant salesman and tinkerer and his mom taking care of the kids. There was extended family around in a crowded household where life was the front stoop …

This past weekend was the first time in a long time I thought the Bulls sounded, if not looked, like a championship team. Jimmy Butler complaining about the coach, the media heating up about locker room drama and discord, sources disclosing internal discomfort, the whole thing about to implode!

Reminds me of when Scottie Pippen on that road trip in …

On Halloween eve in Auburn Hills Friday, the Bulls and Detroit Pistons dressed in very clever costumes that made them look like the greatest athletes in the world. It was a heck of a disguise.

“We came out lackadaisical,” said Jimmy Butler. “Can’t happen. Not in this league. Every team, especially on the road, you are going to get their …

One of the great teams in NBA history was the late 1980’s Los Angeles Lakers. When they won the NBA title in 1987, they gave up the 12th most points in the league. When they repeated in 1988, they gave up the 11th most points and were ninth in shooting defense.

Welcome to the 2014-15 Bulls: Showtime II?

NBA balloting for the All-Star team started Thursday, and for just the second time in franchise history it would appear the Bulls have a chance to have three All-Stars.

It’s happened just once in franchise history and it didn’t involve Michael Jordan. It was the 1993-94 season after Jordan’s first retirement when Scottie Pippen, B.J. Armstrong and Horace Grant made …

It’s Comeback III for Derrick Rose starting Monday in Las Vegas with the USA Basketball World Cup team training camp. Yes, it’s Roman numerals now because it is that significant.

And it’s also time to begin setting the record straight regarding Rose.

He’s joined an elite group in NBA history, stars who have been demeaned in their own community. For …
