  1. Winderman: What 29 other teams? League hops on Heat hype express, too.

    Oct 19, 2010, 10:50 AM EST

    LeBron_moscow

    So exactly how embarrassed is the NBA about the rest of its product? How uncomfortable is the league with its other 29 teams that after an offseason of decrying the arrogance of the Miami Heat and the team’s Big Three, the league jumps aboard the hype express? If you haven’t seen yet, TNT announced it…

  2. Korver misses practice with ankle cyst

    Oct 18, 2010, 5:48 PM EST

    It looks like Kyle Korver has the “weirdest injury of the day” award locked up. Take it away, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune: The disjointed nature of Bulls camp continued with Kyle Korver sitting out practice because of a cyst in his ankle. Korver said he recently had a cortisone shot to address the…

  3. Carmelo still wants to be traded… but not to Clippers or 76ers

    All’s quiet on the Carmelo Anthony trade front. And Anthony is not happy about that, according to a Denver Post source. You couldn’t tell it on the court — he scored 30 and was one assist shy of a triple-double against the Clippers Thursday — but he wants out. So long as out isn’t to…

  4. Bulls are not investigating Boozer injury. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Carlos Boozer has what in layman’s terms is a “boxers fracture,” a break in the hand often associated with punching. Not tripping over a gym bag and breaking the fall with your hand, which is what Boozer told the Bulls and the press. The Bulls are good with that, coach Tom Thibodeau told the Chicago…

  5. Are the Bulls investigating Carlos Boozer’s injury?

    Oct 10, 2010, 12:30 PM EST

    boozerbulls

    When Carlos Boozer was lost for two months after breaking his hand at home, the usual questions arose. How did it happen? When did it happen? Why was there a bag on your floor? What kind of bag? Did it have a floral print? You know, the essentials. Well, after Monta Ellis’ little rodeo with…

  6. Ronnie Brewer was the one guy who wanted to be in Utah, had to go to Chicago

    Oct 7, 2010, 4:50 PM EST

    brewer_Bull_intro

    All summer long there was talk about players trying to get to Miami or New York or Chicago — nobody wanted to be in the small markets, everybody wanted to go big time. Not Ronnie Brewer. He wanted to stay on Utah, but they didn’t want him, Brewer told Chris Tomasson of FanHouse. So he…

  7. Carlos Boozer gets beat in HORSE by a high schooler

    Oct 7, 2010, 1:38 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer has range for an NBA big man, and if this was a game of one-on-one it would be over. But HORSE…. the kid has a chance. This was part of the Gatorade Replay series, which Boozer was helping out on (hat tip to Ball Don’t Lie).

  8. Report: Nuggets find market drying up for huge Carmelo Anthony deal

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:40 PM EST

    The Nuggets are asking a lot for Carmelo Anthony in a trade: good young players and draft picks for the future, enough established talent to keep them in the playoffs now, plus cap relief that keeps them below the luxury tax. And a date with Scarlett Johansson. And a DeLorean that can travel through time.…

  9. Phoenix, Chicago this week's frontrunners for Erick Dampier

    Oct 6, 2010, 6:55 PM EST

    Let’s be honest, we got annoyed with the LeBron James decision process that seemed to drag on and on, but at least there was a franchise-shaping decision coming at the end of it. The Erick Dampier decision-making process? It just drags on and on. Dampier will meet this week with Chicago and Phoenix, according to…

  10. Carlos Boozer fractures hand, out two months

    Oct 3, 2010, 4:29 PM EST

    All the hope surrounding the Chicago Bulls just took a punch to the gut. Carlos Boozer fractured the fifth metacarpal bone in his hand on Saturday, an injury that will require surgery and keep him out eight weeks, the team announced. The injury happened on an off day for the Bulls. ESPN is reporting that…

  11. The Saturday Starting Five: Your Season Assured

    Oct 2, 2010, 2:00 PM EST

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Our…

  12. The 1997 Chicago Bulls vs. Genghis Khan. Who ya got?

    Sep 29, 2010, 3:12 PM EST

    This may be the best of the NBA 2K11 promo commercials yet…

  13. Derrick Rose thinks he can be MVP material

    Sep 28, 2010, 11:38 AM EST

    Derrick Rose has serious game. He has the work ethic. He knew the biggest hole in that game was a consistent three-point shot, so he spent all summer working on it. He was certainly more confident with the shot at the FIBA World Championships. Of course, he only hit 27.5 percent of his threes (from…

  14. Bulls may not trade Noah, but can they sign him?

    Sep 24, 2010, 4:50 PM EST

    The Chicago Bulls have certainly pumped up Joakim Noah’s value. All summer they talked about him as part of the young core of reinvigorated Bulls franchise. Then they refuse to include him in a deal for Carmelo Anthony. But part two of that is signing him to an extension. Noah will play this season for…

  15. By the way, Carlos Boozer doesn't want to trade Joakim Noah

    Sep 24, 2010, 1:36 PM EST

    This all may be moot now, but for the record Carlos Boozer is good with the Bulls seeming to drop out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. “I want Joakim Noah to stay,” Boozer said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “I don’t want to see him in any uniform but a Bulls…

  16. Phil Jackson reminisces about Scottie Pippen (and his defense)

    Sep 23, 2010, 3:21 PM EST

    Phil Jackson got put on the radio — ESPN 1000 Radio in Chicago — with Scottie Pippen, and he sounded like a coach. We fans have our memories of Pippen the player, the dramatic dunks and the big games. The rings. But Jackson thinks of Pippen the defensive leader.  The other thing that I remember…

  17. Joakim Noah doesn't want to be traded

    Sep 23, 2010, 9:26 AM EST

    Be part of a powerhouse team that could be very good in Chicago or be part of a rebuilding process in Denver where you will forever be “the guy we traded the best player in franchise history for.” Shockingly, Joakim Noah is partial to the first option. Still he went to the old but true…

  18. Nuggets asking the world for Carmelo, Nets pushing to make it happen

    Sep 23, 2010, 1:05 AM EST

    The Chicago Bulls talked with Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Joakim Noah be part of the deal. So it fell apart. The New Jersey Nets talked to Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Brook Lopez be part of the deal. So it fell apart. Sensing a pattern here? Denver is listening to offers for…

  19. NBA Season Preview: Chicago Bulls

    Sep 22, 2010, 1:41 PM EST

    Last season: 41-41, same as it ever was with Vinny Del Negro Head Coach: Tom Thibodeau, the defensive guru from the Boston Celtics gets his first head coaching gig. He’s earned it, but this is not a soft landing sprt — there are expectations. Key Departures: Kirk Hinrich, Brad Miller, Hakim Warrick Key Additions: Carlos…

  20. Carmelo Anthony on the rumors: "i just want to play ball"

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:45 PM EST

    Whatever is swirling through the media, through back channels and into NBA front offices, Carmelo Anthony is going to come out at Nuggets camp and say all the right things. He’s got that down. He’ll do it to microphones next week, but he went to twitter and made these comments Wednesday night: Everyone has there…

  21. Chicago trading Joakim Noah for Carmelo Anthony? Bad idea.

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:01 PM EST

    Who knows who put this rumor out there — Denver staffers trying to up the ante, Carmelo Anthony people trying to push the deal forward — but it is the debate around the league: Should Chicago throw Joakim Noah into the deal to bring Carmelo Anthony to Chicago? No. No. A thousand times no. Let’s…

  22. Carmelo Anthony renews push for trade to New York or Chicago; Denver in no rush

    Sep 22, 2010, 8:22 AM EST

    If you’re wondering why so many — and at times conflicting — rumors are coming out about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation in the last few days, here’s your answer. Anthony and his CAA team (led by agent Leon Rose) have stepped up to pressure a move before training camp starts, according to ESPN. And…

  23. Brian Scalabrine gets make good deal with Chicago

    Sep 21, 2010, 9:48 PM EST

    We tried to prepare you for this Celtics fans — the Brian Scalabrine era in Boston has come to an end. The team’s victory cigar at the end of its bench has signed a make-good deal with the Chicago Bulls and will attend their camp, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. This came about because…

  24. Carmelo Anthony rumors update (please bring plenty of salt)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:32 PM EST

    There are almost more rumors about Carmelo Anthony out there than there are people laughing at David Hasselhoff after last night. Almost. We’re going to talk about some key ones, but first we start with the trade rumor primer, just as a reminder: Every leaked rumor has a motive behind it. Nobody at this stage…

  25. USA Basketball reached out to Joakim Noah, but he wants to play for France

    Sep 20, 2010, 10:37 AM EST

    With the thin front line USA Basketball this summer — a lot of top names said no then Amar’e Stoudemire, Brook Lopez and David Lee couldn’t play — Jerry Colangelo was calling everyone and anyone. JaVale McGee got multiple chances to make the team. Lamar Odom was the starting center. They were looking around. That…
