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 …

You don’t get to jump up from No. 29, but it wasn’t a bad night for the Bulls in Wednesday’s NBA Draft Lottery.
The New Orleans Hornets hit the jackpot by jumping up from No. 4 and will get the chance to select Chicagoan Anthony Davis, the 6-10 center from the University of Kentucky.
Davis is regarded as a potential …

And now, it’s back to Miami for the Bulls in not exactly the condition they’d like to be in, though getting closer.
The Bulls Wednesday dominated the awful Charlotte Bobcats, 100-68, in an efficient bounce back effort behind 22 points from Richard Hamilton and a vital bench output of 42 points with no starter playing more than 24 minutes.

No Derrick Rose and no Luol Deng Wednesday against the Bobcats, which raised the question about whether either would play in the second part of the back-to-back Thursday against the Heat.
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau before Wednesday’s game, predictably, declined comment since the Bobcats appeared in his pregame report to somewhat resemble the ’96 Bulls.
But given there would be …

I’ll admit I had trouble with that sneaker commercial some years back that referenced Dwyane Wade. You remember: Fall seven times, stand up eight.
How, after all, was he getting up that eighth time when he hadn’t fallen yet? I probably should have consulted Phil Jackson, given the apparent Zen interpretation of struggles that require resilience and perseverance. And that …

The Bulls wanted to get a veteran player like Richard Hamilton for the playoffs. It looks like that’s what it might be.
Not really, as the Bulls Tuesday confirmed Hamilton had suffered just a right shoulder bruise and sprain and contusion instead of, as feared, something more serious when he collided with Roy Hibbert just over a minute into Monday’s …
