In the old days with Michael Jordan when there was a crisis they used to call it the “Archangel offense.” You know, save us, Michael.

So with Carlos Boozer out with a broken hand (surgery Tuesday) and Ronnie Brewer still unable to recover from lingering hamstring issues, thus 40 percent of their planned starting lineup sidelined, the Bulls likely will …

The lesson here, kids, is when your mom says to clean up and put things away because you could fall and get hurt, she wasn’t kidding.

And, yes, you could take an eye out, too. No running with scissors.

The Bulls will be without Carlos Boozer, likely for about eight weeks with a broken right hand above the pinky, because …

Last week, I wrote my main story from Bulls training camp.

I called it “The indispensable man: Carlos Boozer.”


Yes, there’s still almost a month before the beginning of the season, and it’s not a knee injury or a season ended. But it was a huge blow to the Bulls when the team announced Sunday afternoon that Boozer had …

Anything to the story about Carmelo having the Bulls on his trade wish list?

– John Jenkins

Well, here we go again. Me, too. I was getting ready to restart my Ask Sam feature once the USA team concluded. But here we go again with the NBA’s newest distraction: Which superstar is planning to leave his team next?

It’s been …

Our long national (basketball association) nightmare finally is over.

LeBron James left Cleveland with about as much sympathy and gratitude as the way Richard Nixon left Washington. James is moving his kingdom to Miami to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to form the most impressive basketball threesome since the last most impressive one.

How many Big Threes are allowed …

So what happens next?

The Bulls Tuesday in losing the opening round playoff series to the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 concluded what generally was a successful season with a second straight 41-41 record and first round playoff elimination. Yes, even with another first round out. This was to be the appetizer.

But given injuries that cost Joakim Noah 18 games and …

LeBron James was waiting for it, the subtle knuckleball of a question coming his way after his Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday eliminated the Bulls in five games with a tough 96-94 victory in the opening round playoff series.

James, who held together a shaky Cavs group that was feeling the pressure down the stretch with 19 points, 10 rebounds and nine …

The Bulls Thursday play Game 3 of what may be the most important playoff series in franchise history.

And thus far, even though the Bulls trail 0-2, the series with the Cleveland Cavaliers may be going very well.

That’s because based on what LeBron James has seen in the first two games, especially in the Cavs 112-102 Game 2 victory …

The Bulls made the playoffs. Great. Now what do they do? Or more precisely, how do they beat LeBron James, surely the league’s MVP, and the Cavs, the NBA’s winningest team?

I’m glad I asked because I know how to do it. Unfortunately, I am not coaching the Bulls, so I cannot be responsible if the Cavs win, as everyone …

So here we are–game 82 against the Charlotte Bobcats. Win or go home. Can it get better than that?

OK, the Toronto Raptors could lose, and that would send the Bulls to the playoffs as well. But you can’t count on that against the Knicks.

Hanging above all that is change.

If the Bulls don’t make the playoffs, especially given …
