It’s a sad day for Bulls fans.

Yes, plenty of them wanted Luol Deng traded once Derrick Rose was hurt and out for the season with the possibility of a championship lost, Deng a free agent and possibly leaving after the season for a better contract or weather. Plenty of fans wanted a shot at a young player in the …

So yes, our long national nightmare finally ended, or at least the TV networks’. Never have so many paid so much attention to those who will play so few playoff games.

The 2012-13 NBA Playoffs begin Saturday with the Knicks and Celtics, which probably is the premier first round matchup given the media markets, the history, the recent terrorist bombing …

Considering the circumstances, the Bulls’ 94-89 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers Tuesday wasn’t all that bad. Look, it was the likes of some of the greatest athletes in the NBA today, like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, helping the Clippers to 10 dunks while George Yardley, Togo Palazzi, Harry Gallatin, Max Zaslofsky and Bobby Wanzer just couldn’t keep up.…

It’s not really a mob because they’re from Los Angeles, where, to quote the great philosopher Neil Diamond, the sun shines most the time and the feeling is lay back.

So call the Los Angeles Clippers’ reserves, who rank among the most substantial in the NBA, the Bench Coterie.

They’re in the United Center with former Bulls coach Vinny Del …

Defeat isn’t a tragedy, though no one among the Bulls’ players was feeling particularly sanguine Monday about a 27-point third quarter lead at home that turned into an inexplicable 93-92 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

“I’m stunned by simple fact that we have a 25 point lead (even he didn’t know it was worse) and the way we defend we …

It was the talk of the offseason in the NBA, the incredible accumulation of talent in Los Angeles. The Bulls Saturday get a look at it, yes, when they play….the Clippers?

“We have a chance,” former Bull and Clippers leading scorer Jamal Crawford was saying after Clippers practice Friday. “This is one of the best teams in the league, honestly. …

We know the Lakers are not going to win 70 games. But what about the Bulls?

It’s 2-0 now with Friday’s dominating 115-86 win in Cleveland. And it’s now five consecutive home games ahead with the Hornets Saturday, without rookie sensation Anthony Davis after he suffered a mild concussion Friday, rebuilding Orlando Tuesday and then a national TNT game against …

Well, maybe it doesn’t look that bad for the Bulls in the 2012-13 season, after all.

It’s not good, mind you, at least as long as Derrick Rose is recovering from knee surgery, which should be at least half the season. You lose the league MVP or your star and you get worse.

There are no shortcuts: Bulls go from …

So after all that–losing Derrick Rose to that catastrophic knee injury in Game 1, losing Joakim Noah to that horrendous sprained ankle in Game 3, and then with Taj Gibson limping to the locker room Tuesday in Game 5 with his own sprained ankle, after the team filing a missing persons report on Richard Hamilton, after it appeared the Bulls …

The Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers open the NBA playoffs Saturday at noon Central time in the United Center. And if the first round doesn’t hold all that potential suspense—though there is some with Miami and the Knicks—then the answer to the ultimate question certainly does.

Because the identity of a potential champion is as uncertain this season as it’s ever …
