The man in the middle from Spain…? From Florida?

“It’s not that I see myself starting,” Pau Gasol was saying Thursday during a media conference call from Africa, where he is participating in the NBA’s first ever Africa game. “I’m going to work and earn (my spot). I don’t take anything for granted no matter how well I played or …

Cameron Bairstow never quite tried to hold up 196 fingers to signal his national ranking as an incoming freshman power forward at the U. of New Mexico, one of only two U.S. colleges that offered the Australian a basketball scholarship. And Bairstow did play to his ranking, averaging 2.6 points and 1.8 rebounds as a freshman and 3.7 points and …

Bobby Portis, welcome to the NBA. Well, sort of the NBA. The part of the NBA where the likes of Lucas Nogueira, Bruno Cabocio and Norman Powell can make you look bad.

That group of Toronto Raptor wanna-bes did Sunday as the Bulls trailed the entire game and lost 81-66 to the Raptors’ hopefuls. It left the Bulls 1-1 in …

The Bulls are putting the band back together. But will it be able to hit the high notes?

That’s the big question as the Bulls, according to league sources and published reports, agreed Wednesday to contracts with their new Mr. Fabulous, Jimmy Butler, and fellow sole man Mike Dunleavy.

No need to beware of Razorbacks bearing gifts, except perhaps if you’re the Bulls opposition.

Wearing a dark suit with a red bow tie, a red Bulls baseball cap and delivering three boxes of doughnuts (the traditional morning duty for rookies), Bulls first round draft pick Bobby Portis Monday announced his arrival in Chicago, both symbolic and hopeful.

“I’ve always …

And then there was one, or as the Bulls hope, two more games.

“I feel like we’re a confident group of guys,” Jimmy Butler insisted late Tuesday night in a subdued Bulls post game locker room after Cleveland’s 106-101 win to take a 3-2 lead in the conference semifinal series. “We like the chances we have; obviously we’ve got to …

There are a lot of great stories in these NBA playoffs, which are as wide open to produce a champion since perhaps anytime in the late 1970s. Here comes Memphis and the Clippers and even Washington, and few are going to dismiss anyone.

There was the Boffo Buzzer Beater weekend with Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce and LeBron James as the …

This one really hurt for the Bulls, Sunday’s 86-84 Cleveland Cavaliers victory to even the conference semifinal series at 2-2.

Not because LeBron James beat them with a 21-foot corner buzzer beater on an inbounds play with 1.5 seconds left after a frantic Bulls rally from six behind with two minutes remaining.

“It was a tough shot,” agreed Derrick Rose, …

LeBron James killed the Bulls in the Cleveland Cavaliers Game 2 victory. But mostly James has been killing the Cavs in this conference semifinals playoff series. Perhaps the question now with Game 4 in the United Center 2:30 p.m. Sunday is whether the Cavs are better off playing with or without James.

Maybe he’ll tell me was insulted like he …

The Bulls Friday by a 99-96 margin, again beat the Cleveland Cavaliers with a buzzer beater from their star. Call it The Shot Jr.

“I was supposed to get the ball in the corner,” said Derrick Rose, who banked in the most unlikely of three pointers to give the Bulls a 2-1 lead in the conference semifinal. “When I ran …
