  1. LeBron's free agent tour to begin in New York, fan backlash soon to follow

    Jun 4, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    It could be worse. The rumor that Nike was going to make a LeBron James free agent tour shoe series — with the date he was in each city on it — is not true. Nike shot it down. Maybe because they see where this is headed. James is going to do a free agency…

  2. Wither Tom Thibodeau?

    Jun 4, 2010, 8:21 AM EDT

    New Orleans has made their offer and wait. Chicago had an interview and now is deciding what to do. New Jersey and the Los Angeles Clippers are waiting in the wings. Tom Thibodeau is a very popular man these days. It seems clear he will not be back on the Celtics bench next year, even…

  3. Report: Thibodeau turns down Hornets, or not. We don't know yet.

    Jun 3, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:45 pm: Now it appears that there is no decision, but the deadline is looming for one this afternoon. At least that’s what Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski said on twitter. Tom Thibodeau is still in play for Hornets job and clock’s ticking toward an afternoon deadline to accept or reject offer, sources tell Y! We…

  4. Kevin McHale considers himself in the running for the Bulls' coaching job

    Jun 2, 2010, 12:09 PM EDT

    The name ‘Kevin McHale’ can elicit a number of different reactions. Among Celtics fans (or simply low-post enthusiasts), the man is revered as an NBA legend of the highest order. One of the all-time greats, McHale was an instrumental part of three Celtics championships. Ask a die-hard Laker fan however, and the responses likely range…

  5. Might Lakers Brian Shaw bring the triangle offense to Chicago?

    May 31, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    The triangle offense can win — 10 of the last 19 titles have gone to teams running the offense, and another triangle team is in the NBA finals this season. Of course, there’s a few other minor factors that go into that — Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Phil Jackson.…

  6. What LeBron would mean to Chicago: $$$

    May 31, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James isn’t just a basketball player. Well, he is that, a damn good one. But he’s grown beyond that into a brand. A franchise unto himself. Someone that takes a team to manage. The man prints money. So with “LeBron fever” rivaling or surpassing “Blackhawks fever” in Chicago right now, the Chicago Business Journal…

  7. Hornets enter negotiations with Tom Thibodeau to become head coach

    May 31, 2010, 9:40 AM EDT

    Right now Tom Thibodeau may be the prettiest girl in the bar, and the Hornets are stepping up to make their move. New Orleans has entered negotiations with Thibodeau to become their new head coach, according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski. This means that Hornets General Manager Jeff Bower has exchanged offers with CAA, the firm…

  8. Today's coaching carousel: Hawks interview Mark Jackson, Bulls chase after Thibodeau

    May 29, 2010, 1:34 PM EDT

    Mama, their goes that wanna-be coach. Mark Jackson — the former All-Star point guard and current NBA analyst for ABC/ESPN — is getting an interview for the Atlanta Hawks head-coaching job, according to FanHouse. The Hawks waited until Jackson was done with his responsibilities covering the Eastern Conference Finals before conducting the interview. (Off topic…

  9. Bulls GM Forman to Wade: We are a very loyal organization

    May 28, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    In a recent interview, Dwyane Wade shot down the idea of returning to his home town to play for the Bulls, questioning the loyalty of the organization that did not keep Michael Jordan or Scottie Pippen around. Even though those two chose to distance themselves from the Bulls. Whatever. Bulls General Manager Gus Forman stepped…

  10. Dwyane Wade is not going back to Chicago

    May 27, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    Earlier we talked about the upcoming Apalachin Meeting with all the top NBA free agents conferring with each other. But in that same Chicago Tribune article where Wade spilled the beans on the meeting, he also pretty much ruled out returning to his hometown of Chicago to elevating the Bulls to elite. It sounds as…

  11. Phil Jackson would like to have a vodka with Mikhail Prokhorov

    May 26, 2010, 9:44 AM EDT

    Like sands through the hourglass, so goes the daily Phil Jackson speculation, reality be damned. I guess we have to dive in again today… Phil Jackson has not had anyone reach out to him through back channels about coaching in Chicago or anywhere else next year. And he is not going to Chicago. But new…

  12. Nets join Bulls, also reach out to Phil Jackson through back door channels

    May 25, 2010, 7:04 PM EDT

    UPDATE: 7:04 pm: Rod Thorn, the man with the power in New Jersey, said, “are you kidding me?” Well, not exactly those words, but that is basically what he told FanHouse. “It’s not true,” Thorn said Tuesday in an interview with FanHouse about an ESPN report that said the Nets have made “back-channel inquires” about…

  13. Bulls reach out to Phil Jackson through back channels

    May 25, 2010, 1:09 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson returning to the Chicago Bulls? It’s a long shot. It’s not like he left Chicago on the best of terms. Plus, he would have to leave a title-contending team in the warm-weather city where his once-posed-for-Playboy girlfriend lives to move to a cold-weather city where he would be chasing past glory. But the…

  14. Bulls make push to interview Celtics defensive mastermind Tom Thibodeau

    May 24, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Remember how the Bulls fired Vinny Del Negro and were going to get an experienced head coach, one with NBA playoff experience? That or Tom Thibodeau, apparently. With Thibodeau one of the finalists for the New Orleans Hornets job, the Bulls have stepped up their pursuit of the Boston Celtics defensive mastermind, according to the…

  15. Dan Majerle just wants to coach, likes the Chicago job just fine

    May 24, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Dan Majerle threw his hat into the ring for the Sixers coaching job, which is a step in the coaching dance that can be loosely interpreted to mean, “I’ll take any head coaching gig, no matter how mediocre.” So naturally, when faced with the possibility of coaching the Chicago Bulls next season — who not…

  16. Like every other Bulls fan, Barack Obama likes the look of LeBron James in Chicago

    May 24, 2010, 10:23 AM EDT

    How much pull does Barack Obama have in getting LeBron James to Chicago? Well, probably less than William Wesley. But he does want him there, and he said as much to Marv Albert in a television interview set to air on TNT on Tuesday night (at 5 p.m.). “You know, like I said, I don’t…

  17. So what's the deal with the Chris Bosh free agency list?

    May 23, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    On Friday, we told you about the report from Chad Ford of ESPN concerning a list of teams Chris Bosh’s agent had provided the Raptors. The list was for teams he was looking to sign with, and included the Heat, Knicks, Bulls, and Lakers, so that the Raptors could begin considering a sign and trade.…

  18. Report: Chris Bosh gives Raptors five teams he wants to play for, wants to play with LeBron James

    May 22, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    UPDATE 5/22 9:52 am: Bosh’s agent has denied there is a list to our own Ira Winderman (writing for the South Florida Sun Sentinel). “I haven’t closed the door on anything,” (Henry) Thomas insisted. “I haven’t given Bryan any lists. There is no list. This is a process that is ongoing.” Nobody believes that, especially…

  19. Cleveland Cavalier's nuclear option: The sign-and-trade

    May 21, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    Cleveland officials will not even discuss it. It is a thought they have banished from their minds, as if even allowing it to creep in seems to make it a little bit more possible. They don’t want admit the worst, nobody ever does. But the reality is they could lose LeBron James this summer. Smart…

  20. Rockets assistant Elston Turner interviews for Bull head coaching gig

    May 21, 2010, 8:28 AM EDT

    Do the Bulls know what they want? Rockets assistant Elston Turner sat down with Chicago Bulls brass for a four-hour interview Thursday about the team’s head coaching gig, according to NBA.com’s David Aldridge. Turner has been one of the hot assistant coaching names around the league for several years now, interviewing for several jobs including…

  21. Phil Jackson would be a perfect mentor for LeBron. But it's not going to happen.

    May 19, 2010, 1:19 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson’s team is once again peaking right as it heads deep into the playoffs. Again. Why does this surprise us? Sure, there were the injuries and the ugly last couple weeks of the regular season for the Lakers, but we should have all seen that. We should have known better. History has shown us…

  22. LeBron? Who knows? But Doc Rivers is not going to the Bulls.

    May 19, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    It was an early contender for silliest bit of LeBron speculation out there – that he was going to Chicago and Doc Rivers was going to join him. Rivers grew up in Chicago, he was going to come home to the deep-dish pizza and a Bulls team that needed him. Yea, right. Rivers himself shot…

  23. Joe Johnson to the Bulls?

    May 17, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    Free agent talk around the Bulls seems to be focusing on some other guy. Can’t quite recall his name. Pretty good player though, as I remember. But the Joe Johnson is a free agent this summer and while the Atlanta Hawks want him back, he may just fly the coop. All the way to Chicago,…

  24. Report: Lebron James, John Calipari being shopped as package deal.

    May 17, 2010, 1:46 AM EDT

    Buy one, get the second one at an exorbitant full price. And it may be worth it. May. According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls are one of the team that have been approached about interest in a LeBron James and John Calipari package deal. League sources said Sunday that noted NBA power broker William…

  25. Obama thinks LeBron James would look great in a Bulls uniform

    May 14, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Apparently Barack Obama is willing to risk losing Ohio in the next election. The Baller-In-Chief is a Chicago Bulls fan, so not a shock that he likes the idea of LeBron James playing for his team. ESPNChicago did the snooping. “He doesn’t want to tamper,” senior adviser to the president — and former Bulls season-ticket…
