Chicago Bulls

  1. Thibodeau defends Asik’s play

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:25 PM EST

    Omer Asik

    After Chris Bosh got injured in a collision with Chicago Bulls forward Omer Asik during Saturday’s game, he was critical of Asik after the game for diving after a loose ball that was close to Bosh’s legs. Asik didn’t come all that close to the ball, but he did end up making contact with Bosh’s…

  2. Carlos Boozer out Monday with sprained ankle

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:52 AM EST

    Carlos Boozer, Antawn Jamison

    While we were all listening to Chris Bosh whine about his ankle being sprained, Carlos Boozer walked out of the United Center Thursday night with a boot over his left foot due to a sprained ankle. Boozer will be out Monday afternoon when they take on the Grizzlies, according to Sam Smith on Bulls.com. If…

  3. LeBron sits out against Bulls Saturday night

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:34 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    UPDATE 7:35 pm: It’s official, LeBron is out for a second straight game due to his sprained ankle suffered against the Clippers last Wednesday night. This really shouldn’t be a surprise, Miami is expected to be cautious during the regular season when it comes to injuries with its big three. It just puts more on…

  4. How do contending teams perform in the fourth quarter?

    Jan 15, 2011, 12:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Always Be Closing. That’s the name of the game, isn’t it? Great teams close out strong. They finish well together. They’re able to end games with finality. It’s that ability to lock down in the fourth quarter and finish teams off that separates the men from the boys. Young, weak teams can’t get it done,…

  5. The Bulls miss Joakim Noah on offense. Seriously.

    Jan 13, 2011, 3:39 PM EST

    Joakim Noah

    Do you want to know one key reason advanced statistics have found a foothold in the NBA front offices? Because they give you evidence to challenge your beliefs and understanding of the game. It can confirm or make you re-evaluate what you think you know. And a good GM is always questioning everything. For example,…

  6. Scottie Pippen thinks Dennis Rodman should get a Hall call

    Jan 11, 2011, 10:40 AM EST

    Dennis Rodman #91

    Dennis Rodman is close — he is on the list of players being considered for induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. That should happen. Not just because of what would promise to be a spectacular induction speech (not to mention post-induction party) but because the man deserves it. Scottie Pippen (already a Hall…

  7. Heat take over top spot in East, Celtics should be worried

    Jan 11, 2011, 9:40 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    Last season it was all about Boston being healthy. Doc Rivers sacrificed games — Boston was 11-11 in their last 22 — to get healthy and have players rested for the playoffs. Boston fell to the four seed, but Rivers got the physically ready veteran team he wanted. They came within a quarter of getting…

  8. Carlos Boozer benched in fourth quarter, not sure why

    Jan 6, 2011, 10:05 AM EST

    Carlos Boozer, Kurt Thomas

    For the entire fourth quarter of a close game Wednesday — a game Chicago lost — Carlos Boozer sat and watched. Coach Tom Thibodeau had benched Boozer, the Bulls second best player. And he was none to pleased about it, as ESPNDallas reports. “You got to talk to Thibs about that,” Boozer said. “That was…

    What you missed while listening to Josh Groban sing the tweets of Kanye West… The Celtics and Spurs were our Game of the Night. Nets 96, Bulls 94: Tom Thibodeau has turned the Chicago Bulls into one of the best defensive teams in the league. He has them winning despite injuries to key players. He…

  10. Maybe revenue sharing isn’t the answer for owner, players

    If there is one thing that both the players and owners almost, kind of agree on in the new Collective Bargaining Talks is the concept of increased revenue sharing. The players see it as a way to help make small market teams competitive — allowing those teams to pay higher salary and avoid issues such…

  11. Kings talking trades for Omri Casspi, Carl Landry

    Jan 3, 2011, 9:12 AM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Sure the Kings have the worst record in the NBA, but there is talent on that roster. The kind of roster and situation other GM’s are looking to exploit and pick over like vultures on a carcas. Some of that talant is not available — Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins — but some of it is……

  12. Anderson Varejao breaks cheekbone, to miss time

    Dec 31, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Image (1) varejao-thumb-250x218-21449.jpg for post 4424

    Wednesday night, DeSagana Diop’s elbow accidentally caught Anderson Varejao’s face during the Bobcats win over Cleveland. After the game Varejao’s face swelled and doctors have determined the shot broke Varejao’s cheekbone. The Brazilian will be out at least Saturday’s Cavaliers game against the Bulls, reports Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal (via twitter). Varejao’s…

  13. Report: Bulls not likely to trade for shooting guard

    Dec 31, 2010, 9:43 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    Because of injuries — first Carlos Boozer in the preseason now Joakim Noah — it’s hard to know exactly how good the Bulls are with this roster. But when Bulls fans and people around the league start speculating about trades to improve the club, it often starts at the shooting guard. That’s where Keith Bogans…

  14. Bulls looking for shooting guard: Jackson, Mayo on radar

    Dec 29, 2010, 9:58 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Chicago Bulls have some pieces — a dynamic point guard, a power forward who can score inside and out, a rebounding and defense focused center (who is out injured), some quality role players. What they want is a shooting guard who can fit next to Derrick Rose. That’s what they are working hard to…

  15. Derrick Rose, knocking down threes but missing in the midrange

    Dec 27, 2010, 4:23 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    You know what Derrick Rose was doing this summer? Well, besides eating a lot of Skittles? Working on his jump shot and three point shooting. He would tell anyone and everyone around Team USA about the new form and how it was going to help. And it has helped. When he uses it. Rose is…

  16. Some Derrick Rose to whet your appetite

    Dec 25, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    derrick_rose

    There are only a small handful of players right now putting on as good a show as Derrick Rose every time he takes the the court. And he is your opener on Christmas — Rose’s Bulls visit the Knicks starting at noon eastern. Tune in for what may well be the most entertaining game on…

  17. Chicago Bulls sing “12 days of Christmas”

    Dec 21, 2010, 9:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    The singing is so bad in this video that we almost feel bad bringing it to you. Almost. Below you can hear the Chicago Bulls sing their version of the “12 days of Christmas.” Sure they are not exactly vocal stylists, but in the holiday spirit of acceptance we will call them singers and thank…

  18. Bulls lose to the Clippers — think they miss Joakim Noah now?

    Dec 20, 2010, 12:25 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_noah_250.jpg for post 22

    For all of you out there insistent that the Bulls should put Joakim Noah in the offer package for Carmelo Anthony — did you watch your team Saturday? The Bulls lost at home to the Los Angeles Clippers. Yes, those Clippers, who picked up their seventh win of the season that night. Blake Griffin went…

  19. Joakim Noah set to have thumb surgery

    Dec 15, 2010, 10:40 PM EST

    Image (1) noah_tired-thumb-250x166-21051.jpg for post 4327

    According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Bulls center Joakim Noah will undergo thumb surgery and could be out of the lineup for as many as 10 weeks. From Johnson’s report: Noah played with the injury Wednesday night against the Raptors after team physicians determined he could do no further damage to the injury.…

  20. Bulls evaluating Joakim Noah’s thumb injury, surgery not out of question

    Dec 15, 2010, 3:13 PM EST

    Joakim Noah

    Wednesday night Joakim Noah will put on his Bulls uniform and likely have a good game against what passes for interior defense by the Toronto Raptors. Thursday, back in Chicago, he will see a specialist about a thumb injury that has the Bulls concerned there is ligament damage, according to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago.…

  21. J.R. Smith to Chicago? Maybe. (And what that means about Melo.)

    Dec 15, 2010, 12:43 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_smith.jpg for post 394

    The theory goes like this: If the Denver Nuggets are going to trade Carmelo Anthony, then they are going to strip the roster down and rebuild. That means Chauncey Billups is gets moved, it means J.R. Smith is out and maybe more. In the NBA you sell the fan base one of two things —…

  22. Fan starts Dennis Rodman for Hall of Fame Facebook page

    Dec 14, 2010, 7:25 PM EST

    Bulls v Magic Rodman

    I think this is exactly what Mark Zuckerberg had in mind in his Harvard dorm room. Use of Facebook for the greater good. A fan of The Worm — not the one at the bottom of a Mescal bottle but Dennis Rodman — has started a  a Facebook page to urge inclusion of Rodman in…

  23. Derrick Rose sprains right wrist

    Dec 14, 2010, 11:09 AM EST

    James Posey, Derrick Rose,Taj Gibson

    With two minutes left as the Bulls were pulling away from the Pacers Monday night, Derrick Rose had happen to him what happens to every guard who fearlessly drives the lane in the league — a nasty fall. He got a push from behind as he went up and that led him to fall over…

  24. Pacers Jim O’Brien doesn’t think Roy Hibbert is having a good season

    Dec 14, 2010, 9:35 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Phoenix Suns

    The best coaches know how to pick their spots. When to praise, when to criticize, when to ride the hot hand of guys off the bench and when to get the starters back in to keep a run going. Honestly, the last couple days I have no idea what Indiana’s Jim O’Brien is thinking. None.…

  25. Baseline to Baseline Weekend Edition: The hits just keep on coming

    Dec 13, 2010, 9:34 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    What happened while you were falling backwards into the endzone…. Friday Bulls 88 Lakers 84: I’m just saying. At some point, maybe, if the Lakers are in a one-possession game with less than 40 seconds remaining, two-for-one or no, maybe the Lakers should work for a quality shot instead of giving Kobe Bryant the ball…
