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

    Mar 14, 2011, 2:54 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 13, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 13, 2011, 1:15 AM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 11, 2011, 1:18 PM EST

    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…

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

    Mar 10, 2011, 3:13 PM EST

    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…

  6. Michael Jordan says Derrick Rose is the MVP

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:18 AM EST

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Well, that’s about as big an endorsement as you can get. The five time MVP. The guy with the statue outside the United Center. The one and only Michael Jordan says that Derrick Rose is the MVP, according to ESPN Chicago. “MVP of the season,” Jordan said about Rose after the Bulls’ 101-84 win over…

  7. Video: Boozer leaves game after fall; team says ankle sprain, X-rays negative

    Mar 9, 2011, 11:45 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer injured

    UPDATE 11:45 pm: Looks like we’re going to have to wait until Thursday for any definitive answers on Boozer’s leg. Here is what coach Tom Thibodeau told the Associated Press after the game: “X-ray was negative and we’ll have to wait and see (Thursday) what type of swelling he has,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. 10:33…

  8. Bulls owner predicts four championships for Derrick Rose

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    derrick Rose bulls

    No pressure Derrick. It’s just that the owner of the Bulls Jerry Reinsdorf — who paragraphs before admitted he thought they might win one title with Michael Jordan back in the day — told the Chicago Sun Times you could win four. ‘‘If you don’t see something special in Derrick Rose, then you’re blind,’’ Reinsdorf…

  9. Tom Thibodeau had Obama in his corner for Bulls job

    Mar 9, 2011, 11:38 AM EST

    Don’t mess with Tom Thibodeau, the man has supporters in high places. The highest of places. The story goes back a few years. Thibodeau coached for a while at Harvard as a young assistant, and one of his charges was a younger Arne Duncan, co-captain of the team. Thibs impressed Duncan, and that paid off…

  10. Dwight Howard says Bulls are best in the East right now

    Mar 7, 2011, 11:50 PM EST

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    Dwight Howard said what a lot of people have been thinking (and was willing to go farther than we were) when he was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning (via CSN Chicago, they have the video clip where Howard talks about a range of topics). Patrick asked him who was the best team in…

  11. Spoelstra makes mistake in saying Heat players cry after loss

    Mar 6, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat

    There is no crying in basketball. Well, there is, but we don’t really talk about it. Basketball is an emotional game. Well, it is if you care. So not for Andray Blatche most nights. But if you are invested — as any professional player should be — there will be wild emotional highs (we all…

  12. What does another Miami Heat loss tell us? That Chicago is good.

    Mar 6, 2011, 4:45 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer

    For many this s going to be about Miami losing again in a close game against an elite team (87-86 to the Bulls). About the Heat players crying in the locker room afterward. About how the Heat are now 1-16 this season on shots to tie or win in the final 10 seconds of the…

  13. It’s official, Dwight Howard suspended game for 16th technical

    Mar 5, 2011, 5:46 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    We told you last night this was coming, today the NBA league office worked on Saturday to make it a reality. Dwight Howard has been suspended for Monday’s Magic game against the Trail Blazers after picking up his 16th technical foul this season, announced Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President and disciplinarian. League rules call…

  14. Video: Dwight Howard is stronger than the Bulls

    Mar 5, 2011, 10:01 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Dwight Howard has developed a nice arsenal of post moves. But his best asset remains that he is just stronger than you. Which Omer Asik learned the hard way. Asik played a good game overall — his defense and 13 boards were a key part of the Bulls win — but on this play he…

  15. Welcome to suspension time: Dwight Howard picks up 16th technical

    Mar 4, 2011, 9:50 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    Take a seat, Dwight Howard. It took exactly one week for Dwight Howard to pick up his 16th technical — which means an automatic one game suspension. The league will review it but I’d sit Howard from your fantasy team Monday night when they take on the Portland if I were you. Howard picked up…

  16. Stan Van Gundy, no fan of team buyouts

    Mar 4, 2011, 2:09 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Boston picked up Troy Murphy. Miami picked up Mike Bibby. Chicago picked up Rasual Butler. Three of the four teams considered contenders in the East picked up a veteran for their bench that was bought out at the deadline by another team. Orlando stood pat. Want to guess what Stan Van Gundy told the Orlando…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago gives one up to Atlanta

    Mar 3, 2011, 9:36 AM EST

    Bulls Hawks Basketball

    What you missed because you have tiger blood…. Atlanta 83, Chicago 80: Chicago was going to win ugly — this was not a pretty game as both teams struggled to score. However, the Bulls raced out to a 14-0 lead to start the game and held that lead for the first 47:31 of this game,…

  18. Derrick Rose says he did pitch LeBron last summer

    Mar 2, 2011, 5:26 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    I know, I know. We’re all trying to move on forget the Summer or LeBron ever happened, just like we’re trying to forget that night we broke out the bottle of Mescal. Best if it just isn’t discussed anymore. But Derrick Rose wants to make it clear that he did, too, reach out to LeBron.…

  19. Agent confirms Rasual Butler headed to Bulls

    Mar 2, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

    rasual butler

    The Bulls are going to get a little more depth at the wing — as expected Rasual Butler will sign with Chicago once he clears waivers. Butler’s agent Andy Miller confirmed that to CSN Chicago’s Aggrey Sam Wednesday. Butler was bought out by the Los Angeles Clippers as they want to give minutes to younger…

  20. Video: Derrick Rose turns John Wall around with between legs assist

    Mar 1, 2011, 1:19 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is playing well for a rookie point guard. Derrick Rose is playing well for anyone. Monday night on a fast break Rose turned Wall around with the sick assist between his own legs to Joakim Noah for the dunk. Just teaching the rookie a couple of things (on the Bulls way to a…

  21. Appears Chicago is Rasual Butler’s kind of town

    Feb 28, 2011, 9:51 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We told you last night Rasual Butler got bought out by the Clippers, now it appears he will be playing out on the wing for the Chicago Bulls. ESPN’s Ric Bucher is reporting Butler is expected to sign with Chicago as soon as he clears waivers. CSN Chicago says there is strong mutual interest. The…

  22. Clippers buyout Rasual Butler, veteran buyout wave starts

    Feb 27, 2011, 10:15 PM EST

    rasual butler

    Rasual Butler is the first, but you are going to see a rush of these stories in the next few days, followed up with speculation about where they will land. Now is when teams try to negotiate buyouts of contracts for veterans that the team is not going to play. The player takes a little…

  23. Well, that’s awkward — O.J. Mayo stays with Memphis

    Feb 25, 2011, 1:25 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    Hey, we traded you to Indiana as part of a… hold on a sec….. oh, never mind. It has to be a little weird for O.J. Mayo. It’s one thing to hear your name circulated in trade rumors for months, it’s another to hear about a done deal and have the owner telling the Commercial…

  24. Scottie Pippen to become Bulls broadcaster for playoffs

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: When you talk contenders, Chicago wants to be mentioned

    Feb 25, 2011, 4:19 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    What you missed while out doing some naked joyriding… Bulls 93, Heat 89: We won’t know until May, really, if the Chicago Bulls are contenders. If they can hang with Miami and Boston for seven games. The defense definitely can, but the ball sticks too much on offense, leaving Derrick Rose to create one-on-three (or…
