There’s been a buzz lately around the Bulls and the NBA that Taj Gibson should be a strong candidate to win the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award.
And, indeed, he deserves to be among the leaders, if not the winner.
TNT broadcaster Steve Kerr suggested it during a Bulls national broadcast last month. And Gibson admitted earlier this …

One of the big reasons for the success and popularity of Charles Barkley is he’s such a good sport when he faces personal joking and kidding. Compared to say, Shaquille O’Neal, who seems always wanting to beat up someone. Big guys never can take a joke.
The TNT broadcast crew has a favorite gimmick for Barkley. They give Barkley five …

You may be able to find happier people than Taj Gibson.
Perhaps someone sitting in their Redondo Beach condo facing the ocean and the beach volleyball players in February. Maybe a mother holding her baby for the first time. Maybe Thibs with game tapes and an empty Berto Center.
But there aren’t many beaming these days quite like Gibson, who …

The Bulls may be getting a new patch to place on their uniforms, a picture of an M1 Abrams inside a circle with that diagonal line running top left to bottom right.
That’s correct: No tanking!
“Whatever your circumstances are, make the best of those circumstances,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said at the end of yet another draining day for …

Luol Deng was probably in my speculative trade scenarios more than any other Bulls player. Not because he wasn’t a talent, but as I often would tell Deng because he was and how much he might be worth and even be in a better position for himself. None of them obviously occurred.

Bulls forward Taj Gibson is known around the team, at least to his buddy Joakim Noah, as Tagy-woo.
But around the NBA these days it’s been Tagy-Wow!
The fifth-year forward is off to the best start of his career, and he’ll need to continue that as the Bulls Saturday face one of the top young front lines in the NBA …

It hasn’t necessarily been artistic or aesthetic, and it’s raised questions and concerns. But the Bulls reach the first marker in their season long NBA marathon in competitive position after Monday’s 86-81 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.
“I will take it,” said Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. “I told our guys that it got choppy out there.”
That’s not my metaphor. …

The Bulls’ face of frustration Thursday in their mostly one sided 99-89 home loss to the Portland Trail Blazers was wearing a pony tail.
“We got smacked; we got smacked,” Joakim Noah said in clipped comments after the game.
Asked what the team could do differently, Noah was direct: “I don’t know.
“It’s disappointing, it’s really disappointing,” he said. “It’s …

The Bulls lost to that team? No, really, that Charlotte team? At home? By double figures? The Charlotte team whose lottery pick in the Bulls’ Friday 105-75 rout has more names than he had field goals? Whose sixth man shot zero for nine and whose perimeter shooting stretch four was one of 12? That Charlotte team beat the Bulls in …

It’s not exactly a crisis. Actually, it’s a pretty good thing for the Bulls as they ponder their 93-85 victory Monday over the Charlotte Bobcats, their seventh win in the last nine, to go to 27-17. But with the emergence of second year man Jimmy Butler, who led the Bulls in scoring off the bench with a career high 19 …
