When the Bulls took the court and opened the preseason against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday at the United Center, they did so with a different look.
The most significant change, of course, was that Derrick Rose remains on the sideline as he rehabs a torn ACL. With Rose out, Kirk Hinrich started at point guard in his return to …

The NBA officially opens its season, as it did Monday, with so-called “media day,” which is not unlike baseball in February. You know, when the Cubs believe they can win a World Series and Ozzie Guillen isn’t going to say or do anything stupid this year.
It’s the time when anything is possible, and sometimes it is.
So why can’t …

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 …

The Bulls will not match the restricted free agent offer to Omer Asik, allowing Asik to join the Houston Rockets.

Call it: Saturday happens!
“In this league,” offered Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, “you usually get what you deserve.”
It was stunning in many respects as Derrick Rose with eight points, six assists and five turnovers likely had the poorest game …

A long road trip, like the Bulls begin in Los Angeles Wednesday, can be a turning point for an NBA team because you hear it’s a terrific advantage for team bonding. Players can get spend more time together and continue to develop their team continuity.
That is unless they lose. Because then it will be more important to be home …

The Bulls figured they might have an All Star this season for the first time in a decade.
They didn’t figure it could be Joakim Noah.
But Noah Saturday again was indispensible, scoring a career high 21 points and grabbing 16 rebounds to help lead the Bulls to a 93-90 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats and raise the team’s record …

I feel Derrick Rose’s pain, though it seems he’s fine and will play Tuesday with 10 stitches from inadvertently flopping onto a knife he said he’d had in his bed he was using to cut an apple. Of course, this is one problem Eddy Curry never had as you rarely suffer injuries eating Twinkies.
That was hard to resist, though …

Did you ever see one of those movies where there’s a giant and a little guy and the little guy wants to fight? So the giant puts his open palm against the little guy’s forehead and the little guy starts wind milling punches and doesn’t hit anything because he can’t reach the giant.
That, worst of all, was the story …
