Derrick Rose

  1. Barkley not impressed with Joakim Noah, Thibodeau shrugs

    Jan 18, 2012, 5:01 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett, Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah is not off to a good start this season. He is shooting just 41.2 percent (down from 52.5 percent last year), he is rebounding a little less and turning the ball over a little more. His defense is still good, but feels inconsistent. He has been benched a number of fourth quarters in…

  2. Grant Hill admits he gave Bulls serious consideration

    Jan 18, 2012, 3:28 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    The Bulls had a target during the frenetic free agency period post-lockout — get a veteran upgrade at the two guard. They got one in Richard Hamilton, who has given Chicago 12.2 points per game, a new offensive option to relieve some pressure off Derrick Rose, and he has played solid team defense. But that…

  3. Report: Minnesota will offer Love four years, $60 million

    Jan 18, 2012, 10:18 AM EST

    Kevin Love, Ivan Johnson

    Minnesota may be about to screw up a good thing. They are an entertaining and up-and-coming team, one with a future behind Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Derrick Williams and more. But that comes with a price. The first of those is Love, who is eligible for a contract extension between now and Jan. 25. He…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: One half of Heat bests half of Spurs

    Jan 18, 2012, 2:13 AM EST

    Heat small forward James reacts after the Heat tied the game with the Spurs in the second half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while buying the paintings of a squirrel… Heat 120, Spurs 98: It was a tale of two halves. In the first half the Spurs controlled the tempo and forced the heat into the half court. LeBron James, fighting a cold that might have kept him home if Dwyane Wade could have played,…

  5. Derrick Rose sits Tuesday, up in air for weekend games

    Jan 17, 2012, 9:05 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, Leandro Barbosa

    Not a huge surprise that Derrick Rose sat out Tuesday against the Suns to rest his sore left big toe. Deprived us of the Rose vs. Steve Nash showdown, but it happens. After Tuesday the Bulls are off until Friday. That is a long rest in this schedule. Will Rose be back then? Read as…

  6. It may seem like it, but lockout does not equal more injuries

    Jan 17, 2012, 5:36 PM EST

    Curry injured AP

    You knew this would come — the talk around the league that the lockout and shortened training camps had led to more injuries, more sprained ankles and more traumatic injuries. anecdotal evidence seems to back that up. Al Horford is down for the season after surgery to repair his pectoral muscle Tuesday, a similar injury…

  7. GMs predict Heat to win title, Kevin Durant MVP

    Jan 17, 2012, 2:45 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    The annual NBA survey of team general managers is out and — shockingly — they think the Miami Heat are very good. Same with that Kevin Durant guy. So, they see the world pretty much like the rest of this. In the annual survey of team executives, 74.1 percent of the GMs think the Miami…

  8. However you build it, U.S. Olympic team will be very good

    Jan 17, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    We don’t know exactly what the U.S. Olympic team will look like in London. We know the pool of players — the 20 finalists — the roster will come from. And we know a couple other things: Mike Krzyzewski and staff have some hard choices ahead of them. This team will be very, very good.…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe passed with the game on the line

    Jan 17, 2012, 3:38 AM EST

    What you missed while trying to figure out how to pay off your $44 million hospital bill…. Thunder 97, Celtics 88: Boston’s fifth loss in a row was our game of the night. Lakers 73, Mavericks 70: The Lakers won this game — and were the better shooting team — hitting 38.2 percent of their…

  10. Draft class of ’08 not getting many contract extensions

    Jan 16, 2012, 9:02 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Pop quiz: How many players out of the 2008 NBA draft have gotten the early extensions to their rookie deals as of now? Answer: One. Derrick Rose. That could change a little over the next 10 days — Jan. 25 is the deadline to do an early extension — but only a little. As David…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: Heat slip, Bulls charge into top spot

    Jan 16, 2012, 3:02 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose listens to coach Tom Thibodeau during their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Chicago

    Miami tripped up out West and the Bulls ran over them on the way to the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Meanwhile, jump on the Sixers bandwagon while you can. 1. Bulls (12-2, last week ranked No. 2). Five wins in a row and their next five games are against teams under .500, so…

  12. Injury update: ‘Melo to play; Rose, CP3 to sit on Monday

    Jan 16, 2012, 1:21 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Just a quick injury update on a couple NBA stars for your Monday: • Derrick Rose is out as his Bulls face off against the Grizzlies in Memphis. His injured toe is still giving him trouble, here is the quote via K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “Almost every game, I jam it. By the…

  14. Kyrie Irving might play for Australia in Olympics

    Jan 16, 2012, 12:06 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Here’s something I didn’t know about Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving — he has dual citizenship in the United States and Australia. He was born down under while his father was playing professional basketball there. Which means Irving has a choice to make in the next few weeks — does he want to play for…

  15. Full slate of NBA on tap for Martin Luther King day

    Jan 16, 2012, 10:51 AM EST

    martin-luther-king-jr

    The NBA has tried to make Martin Luther King Day it’s sporting day — and it’s a good fit (well as good as any sporting attempt to claim the day). The NBA has become a league about inclusion on a lot of levels: If you can ball well enough it doesn’t matter if you are…

  16. Kobe says guys most like him: Derrick Rose, Chris Paul

    Jan 16, 2012, 8:06 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Derrick Rose

    Kobe Bryant is the guy with the rep as the toughest dog in the junkyard. Deservedly so. Which led to this interesting comment he made after the Clippers knocked off the Lakers Saturday night, via ESPNLosAngeles.com. “The game just gets easier with Chris Paul,” Bryant said before comparing himself to Paul. “He’s a dog. He’s…

  17. Are the Bulls taking too long to agree to an extension with Thibodeau?

    Jan 15, 2012, 8:20 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Chicago Bulls

    Tom Thibodeau won 62 games in his first season as Chicago’s head coach. He won Coach of the Year. He took his team to the Eastern Conference Finals. So naturally, the Bulls are taking their time agreeing to an extension with him. And now, there’s a report from New York that he’s not super-thrilled with…

  19. Weekend Observations 1.14.12: The Nightmarejao Effect

    Jan 14, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. Gregg Popovich’s talk about defense isn’t just his usual grousing. The Spurs were brilliant the first handful of games defensively but their regression has seemed very emblematic of last year’s team. They are slipping further and further away from what…

  20. Bulls show dominance in win over older Celtics

    Jan 14, 2012, 2:41 AM EST

    Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce

    How this story usually goes: the veteran team looks polished if disinterested at times, but when it’s over they finish it off like a contender; the younger team looks overwhelmed early, overcomes its early struggles to make a game of it but falls short. This was the opposite of that. The Chicago Bulls pulled away…

  21. Derrick Rose to play against Celtics Friday

    Jan 13, 2012, 7:59 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose has a sprained toe but he will play through it on Friday night, he told ESPN’s Ric Bucher. Rose injured the toe on Tuesday against Minnesota and sat out Wednesday against the lowly Washington Wizards (his replacement John Lucas III dropped 25). Friday against the Celtics was always another matter. You knew he…

  22. Do the Bulls have a problem in the paint?

    Jan 12, 2012, 9:29 PM EST

    oakim Noah

    The Chicago Bulls — without Derrick Rose and playing John Lucas III 45 minutes at the point — beat the lowly Washington Wizards Wednesday night thanks to their suffocating defense. And defense is why the big men on the floor for the key moments of the game for Chicago were Omer Asik and Taj Gibson…

  23. Dwight Howard leads everyone in first All-Star ballot returns

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    You didn’t love Dwight Howard as much as Derrick Rose and LeBron James when it came time to award the MVP last year (I know you didn’t get to vote on that, neither did I, but sentiment on this site ran heavy to Rose among commenters). But you love him now. Howard, the Magic’s center,…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe drops another 40

    Jan 12, 2012, 7:58 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while you tried to shame your kid into behaving…. Clippers 95, Heat 89: The game where the rims were afraid was our game of the night. Lakers 90, Jazz 87 (OT): The Lakers might not have gotten to the overtime without Kobe Bryant dropping 40 points — but when Kobe went cold…

  25. Bulls’ Derrick Rose sits due to sprained toe

    Jan 11, 2012, 9:47 PM EST

    Anthony Randolph, Luke Ridnour, Derrick Rose

    If you wondered just what happens to the Chicago Bulls offense when Derrick Rose isn’t there to create everything, watch Wednesday night’s game. Rose did not suit up against the Wizards and John Wall due to a sprained big toe. “It’s a pain tolerance thing. It’s a sprain. He’s gotten a lot of treatment. He…
