Chicago Bulls

  1. Derrick Rose will win MVP. There are better choices.

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    Stan Van Gundy is right — Derrick Rose is going to win the MVP award this year. He has everybody including Michael Jordan’s endorsement. Influential media members are lining up behind him. The question is: Does he deserve it? Or, more accurately, do others deserve it more? You can make a good argument for Rose…

  2. Tom Thibodeau’s social life is worse than yours

    Mar 23, 2011, 10:29 PM EDT

    Image (1) Thibodeau_presser-thumb-250x375-14397.jpg for post 2710

    As a professional blogger, I am required by law to work in my mother’s basement and never see the light of day. Even though my parents’ house has never had a basement. Still, it’s the law. But even still, my social life blows Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau’s out of the water. At least that’s what…

  3. Video: C.J. Watson does his best Derrick Rose imitation at rim

    Mar 23, 2011, 12:58 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Derrick Rose has an ability to knife through the defense and find a way to get off a shot when none seems to exist that is second to none. Bulls backup point guard C.J. Watson has been watching that all season and apparently it has rubbed off a little. Take a look at this shot…

  4. PBT Wednesday morning one liners

    Mar 23, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Chicago Bulls

    Scottie Pippen hosts a yard sale. Some interesting notes on NBA union head Billy Hunter and the ongoing NBA labor talks from Henry Abbott at TrueHoop. The players are essentially the same but the results are worse this season in Atlanta. So new coach Larry Drew’s seat is getting a little warm. Larry Brown wants…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago, Portland make it look easy

    Mar 23, 2011, 8:17 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while wondering why, if aliens were going to abduct and study some of us, they would choose Sammy Hagar… The Lakers/Suns triple overtime thriller was our game of the night. Bulls 114, Hawks 81: What an absolute thrashing (starting right about the end of the first quarter). If this game were a…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago’s offense is as awesome as the Kings defense is horrid

    Mar 22, 2011, 7:40 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Keith Bogans

    What you missed while getting busted for polygamy due to Facebook (damn you Zuckerberg)…. The Celtics beating up and coming from behind to beat the Knicks is our game of the night. Bulls 132, Kings 92: For a night, there were no questions about the Bulls offense. For a night it was an unstoppable force,…

  7. Winderman: Still time to add good player (or Eddy Curry) to playoff roster

    Mar 21, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    ecurry_beard

    Yes, there still is time. With all of its deadlines, be it the mid-February trading deadline or the March 1 buyout deadline, the NBA is surprisingly lax when it comes to its playoff-roster deadline. Spend at least one game on the roster prior to the postseason and you’re playoff eligible, provided you were not on…

  8. Carlos Boozer expected to return to Bulls Monday

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    Carlos Boozer, after missing the Bulls last five games with a sprained ankle, took part in the team shootaround and is expected back on the court Monday night when the Bulls host the Kings Monday night, according to KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune (via twitter). The timing could not be better, as Taj Gibson…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: The Lakers look like the Lakers again

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Notice that two of the top three are from the West? That’s because the East is stumbling toward the playoffs. 1. Lakers (50-20, LW #3). Four wins in a row and just one loss since the All-Star break. They won Monday without Andrew Bynum and will have another game without him Tuesday, but with his…

  10. Bulls sign Jannero Pargo, John Lucas as insurance

    Mar 20, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls had a couple of roster spots open, so they filled them Sunday with a couple of point guards just to have some practice depth behind Derrick Rose. Veteran journeyman Jannero Pargo (who was with the Bulls last season) and John Lucas III (who has been with the Bulls on a 10-day contract…

  11. Stumbling to the playoffs in the East

    Mar 19, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    Interesting post put up at Hoopdata, simply looking at playoff team’s records since the All-Star Break (coming into Saturday’s games). What you notice is some team’s stumbling to the finish line in the East. Chicago 11-3 Philadelphia 10-4 Boston 8-5 Orlando 8-5 New York 7-7 Miami 6-7 Indiana 6-9 Atlanta 5-9 We knew the Bulls…

  12. Best bench lineups in NBA? Stats say look at contenders.

    Mar 18, 2011, 2:35 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Depth can matter more in the regular season than the playoffs, when rotations tighten and stars get extra minutes because games are not as stacked up on top of each other. But depth does matter in getting top seeds and home court, and it does matter in giving a coach matchup flexibility in the playoffs.…

  13. Video: Derrick Rose celebrates St. Patrick’s Day with monster jam

    Mar 18, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Deron Williams

    I have not delved into Derrick Rose’s ancestry, but for one day at least he and the rest of the Bulls were Irish, wearing the green and everything Thursday night against the Nets. Rose decided to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a huge dunk off a give-and-go from the top of the key. Just watch…

  14. JaVale McGee does not care what you think of his triple-double

    Mar 18, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Washington Wizards

    JaVale McGee got his first career triple-double against the Bulls Tuesday night — 12 rebounds, 12 blocked shots and 11 points. And he has taken heat for it. He got there because the Wizards — down 18 points on their way to a big loss — left their starting center in and ran 3 minutes…

  15. Scottie Pippen to get statue inside United Center

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    Michael Jordan has the iconic statue outside the building, Scottie Pippen one inside. Yea, that sounds about right. The Bulls announced that they would honor Pippen with a statue, to be unveiled next month when the Celtics are in town. The statue will be on the 100-level concourse inside the building. “Words really can’t express…

  16. Bulls expect Noah back Thursday, Boozer less likely

    Mar 16, 2011, 5:32 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah

    You wouldn’t know it by their 9-1 record in the last 10, but the Bulls are battling injuries. Thursday night (while you are watching your NCAA bracket self destruct), the Bulls expect to get Joakim Noah back. He was ill and missed their last game, but he practiced with the team Wednesday and is expected…

  17. NBA playoff picture slowly starting to come into focus

    Mar 16, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    At this point, nothing would really surprise me when the NBA playoffs start in a month. Well, Indiana winning the NBA title — heck, more than one game — would surprise me. So that is not totally true. But it’s hard to remember a more wide-open year. Every potential contender has enough strengths that you…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Your Chicago Bulls are on top of the East

    Mar 16, 2011, 3:06 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose 3

    What you missed while pouring out a 40 for Nate Dogg… Bulls 98, Wizards 79: And with that score, the Bulls move into first place in the Eastern Conference. The game itself was pretty much all Bulls, they took an early lead on a 20-5 run (despite Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah being out), although…

  19. Derrick Rose: Thanks for all that added pressure Mr. Jordan

    Mar 14, 2011, 8:05 PM EDT

    derrick Rose bulls

    Michael Jordan was throwing all sorts of bouquets at Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls over the weekend. Jordan said Rose was his MVP. Or when Jordan said this at the United Center over the weekend. “You guys are in store for a lot of other championships… don’t be surprised if you have six more…

  20. Carlos Boozer likely out Tuesday, back later in week

    Mar 14, 2011, 6:29 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer injured

    Carlos Boozer is a cagey veteran, he’d not going to get pinned down into some timeline of when he will come back from a sprained ankle then have to face questions when he doesn’t meet said deadline. Call it Andrew Bynum syndrome. So while Coach Tom Thibodeau was saying he expected Boozer back “probably within…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: How about a Spurs vs. Bulls NBA finals?

    Mar 14, 2011, 2:54 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    It still feels like with the top six teams you could flip a coin week to week on who is playing the best at any given moment. This week the coin came up Spurs. 1. Spurs (54-12, Last Week #4). After a loss to the Lakers a week ago Sunday they put together three nice…

  22. Phil Jackson: Kobe is not Jordan, nobody is

    Mar 13, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Michael Jordan

    Phil Jackson has been there, he has played golf with Michael Jordan. He has had dinners with Kobe Bryant. He has coached them both. He has won championships with both. His perspective on comparing the greatest player of his generation (if not all time) and his heir apparent may have the most insight. And he…

  23. Jordan reflects on ’91 championship team, and sees same future for Rose’s Bulls

    Mar 13, 2011, 1:15 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls celebrated the 20th anniversary of the 1991 championship team Saturday night. Looking back on it, you could tell Michael Jordan still wishes he was living in that time when the world was his. It’ll always be that way for Jordan, looking back on when his body enabled him to dominate every living…

  24. Scottie Pippen says Michael Jordan could score 100 points today

    Mar 11, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan Scottie Pippen Flu Game

    Back in the Jordan era, defenders out on the wing could “hand check” — put their hands on the guy with the ball — and there was no call. A little grab, a little push did not elicit a whistle. Nor did Jordan pushing off to create space. Today (for the last decade almost), you…

  25. Bulls coach says Carlos Boozer out a few days to a week

    Mar 10, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer injured

    Carlos Boozer had some swelling in his ankle and will be out a few days to a week, according to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. He is officially listed as day-to-day. That is the official line (as tweeted by K.C. Jones of the Chicago Tribune and Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald). Aggrey Sam of CSN…
