The Bulls Monday lost 108-104 in overtime to the Charlotte Hornets, a relatively insignificant outcome given that both teams finished the game with lineups that included D-league and European prospects.

But even if Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg remained inscrutable regarding his plans, it seems virtually certain now that Monday’s starting lineup of Dwyane Wade, Rajon Rondo, Robin Lopez, Jimmy Butler …

Wearing Number 1 for the Bulls, at point guard….

…from Hamilton, Massachusetts?

“I was No. 1 in college at Syracuse,” said the Bulls latest point guard, Michael Carter-Williams, acquired Monday for Tony Snell. “I’ve been No. 1 a lot. The discussion is probably going to be D. Rose, that was his old number. It has nothing to do with D. …

So it was mostly against DeAndre Liggins, Cory Jefferson, Jonathan Holmes, Jordan McRae and Kay Felder, who of course also scored 63 first half points and led by nine. But the Bulls Friday in riding Rajon Rondo’s strong third quarter play, the playmaking of Dwyane Wade and the force of Taj Gibson drove ahead and defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, or …

We all wondered in 2010 why LeBron James and Dwyane Wade went to Miami with Chris Bosh when they could have come to Chicago to play with Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah Luol Deng and Taj Gibson. It seemingly would have been a much better and more complete team than the one in Miami, which had to be rebuilt around them, …

Dwyane Wade is 34 going on amazing.

“Obviously I’m not flying over the top of people,” Wade said Saturday after leading the Bulls to a 121-105 win over the Indiana Pacers with 22 points and eight assists. “If I was I probably would be getting tested at 34, getting drug tested a lot. One thing I try to do is …

Keep repeating: The games don’t count, the games don’t count, the games….

And so the Bulls Thursday recorded their second consecutive loss to open the 2016-17 NBA preseason, 115-108 to the Indiana Pacers. It really didn’t mean too much with Jimmy Butler sitting out the second half with just one shot for the game and Rajon Rondo, who was the …

Dwyane Wade Monday was hearing “Chicago,” but perhaps he was thinking Cleveland and you know who.

“Great to get out there in front of the fans for my first game, for me to be here my first moment getting in that starting lineup being called, ‘Here from Chicago, Illinois;’ that felt great,” said Wade after his first game in a …

It’s been a steady, if unlikely, climb for Jimmy Butler, one scratch-your-head, is-that-really-Jimmy-Butler moment to the next from a college basketball scholarship to first round pick, if barely, to NBA All-Star, maximum contract and now an Olympian.

NBA champion?

Butler wasn’t quite ready to declare that as USA Basketball Monday opened its training camp for the 2016 Olympics in Rio …

The Bulls have a chance to be much improved, and what’s wrong with that?

That Thursday was the message from General Manager Gar Forman, who spoke to reporters at the Advocate Center following Rajon Rondo’s introduction as the Bulls’ new point guard. Forman was not permitted comment by league rule about Dwyane Wade, who is expected to sign soon with …

It’s Jimmy Butler driving into the lane, passing cross court to Denzel Valentine, who then off the dribble finds a cutting Jerian Grant to the basket for a layup. Or perhaps a pass out to Doug McDermott or Nikola Mirotic for a three.

The Splash Platoon! A lineup that can kill? You know, a Death Lineup.
