Derrick Rose

  1. Fans send Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett to bench in latest All-Star balloting

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

  2. Dunk of the night: Derrick Rose has some hops

    Jan 11, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose took over the game in the second half and led the Bulls to a win over the Pistons Monday night. You know that game you missed while watching Auburn. The highlight of that second half — a one-handed alley-oop throwdown that was the best dunk last night.  

  3. Latest All-Star voting has Amar’e Stoudemire, Derrick Rose on the bench

    Jan 6, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    Stoudemire_frustrated

    What is the matter with New York? And what about you, Chicago? Not enough passion and votes there to push the very deserving Amar’e Stoudemire and Derrick Rose into All-Star Game starting spots in the Eastern Conference? Well, it’s not that simple, as they would have to unseat two popular Boston stars to get the…

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

    Dec 31, 2010, 9:43 AM EDT

    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…

  5. Kobe Bryant still leads everyone in All-Star voting

    Dec 30, 2010, 1:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    With his worldwide popularity — he sells more jerseys in China than Yao Ming — it shouldn’t be a shock that Kobe Bryant is on top of the NBA’s All-Star balloting. The second round of released vote totals has Bryant with 1,153,694, well ahead of second place overall and Eastern Conference leader Dwight Howard (988,572).…

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

    Dec 29, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 27, 2010, 4:23 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Some Derrick Rose to whet your appetite

    Dec 25, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    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…

  9. Chicago Bulls sing “12 days of Christmas”

    Dec 21, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    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…

  10. Pro Basketball Crosstalk: On the cultural currency of the MVP award

    Dec 14, 2010, 12:03 PM EDT

    Amar'e Stoudemire

    Let’s face it: there are some topics in basketball that are best tackled by having two writers talk past each other at gradually increasing volumes. We’re not making any progress unless we’re yelling our way through the real issues, and that’s precisely what John Krolik and Rob Mahoney hope to accomplish in Pro Basketball Crosstalk.…

  11. Derrick Rose sprains right wrist

    Dec 14, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    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…

  12. Kobe likes Derrick Rose but he’s not passing any torches

    Dec 10, 2010, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose

    Does anyone actually think Kobe will willingly pass on the torch to the next generation? That’s not how he thinks, how he works. You want to be the lion in the pride, come and get it. He’s giving away nothing. So no shock after Bryant and the Lakers beat the Bulls in Los Angeles last…

  13. Four dramatic game winners, one highlight package

    Dec 9, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Fisher_Gasol

    This was the kind of night where having NBA League Pass is a joy — full slate of games and four come down to buzzer beaters. Of course, you missed it because you had to have dinner with the in-laws. We know how that goes. So just watch the highlight package below and see the…

  14. Game of the night: That Tom Thibodeau guy can coach some defense

    Dec 7, 2010, 3:25 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Derrick Rose

    The Oklahoma City Thunder have the league’s leading scorer in Kevin Durant. They have an elite point guard in Russell Westbrook. They have guys who can light it up like Jeff Greed and James Harden. They have a nice bench. The Chicago Bulls handcuffed the Thunder all night Monday with what was a vintage Tom…

  15. Boozer debut with Bulls likely Wednesday night

    Nov 30, 2010, 9:36 PM EDT

    For two days Carlos Boozer has taken part in full practices with the Chicago Bulls, his first two this season. When asked Tuesday if his high-priced star forward would be ready to go on Wednesday night against Orlando, coach Tom Thibodeau gave the Chicago Tribune as close to a yes as you are going to…

  16. Game of the night: Where you can’t throw anything new at Kobe

    Nov 24, 2010, 2:33 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Luol Deng

    Kobe has seen it before. On much bigger stage. He knows how a Tom Thibodeau team is going to defend him. Whenever and wherever he got the ball Tuesday night he patiently waited to see where the double would come from, then he would try to pass to the cutter. Or he kicks it to…

  17. Fast Don’t Lie, the remix video

    It’s a holiday week, it’s not like you are actually getting anything done at the office today anyway. So in the vein of entertaining distractions, we bring you the Fast Don’t Lie video remix with Slim Chin and his lady pyramid. Which he got because he is fast, so I hear. Dwight Howard and D-Rose…

  18. Game of the night: The Spurs would like your attention, please

    Nov 18, 2010, 12:51 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili

    After 24 minutes of decent offensive execution with poor finishing, the Spurs’ third quarter was an explosion of contrasts. San Antonio’s inexplicable misses were made right again, and so were some of their lower quality looks, for that matter. The Spurs just went to that happy place, where every three-pointer is accompanied by candy raining…

  19. Saturday Starting 5: Revel in the Great Point Guard Era

    Nov 13, 2010, 10:42 AM EDT

    dwillpaul

    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. Today’s…

  20. Rose says he missed TV shoot because he “overslept”

    Nov 4, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    derrick_rose

    NBA fans will have plenty of chances to see Derrick Rose on TV playing basketball this season, but Rose fans who were hoping to see his acting chops on display are out of luck. Rose was supposed to film a cameo on CBS’ “The Good Wife” recently, but according to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago,…

  21. Derrick Rose starting to draw the contact

    Nov 4, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_rose.jpg for post 107

    You still see it: Derrick Rose blows by his man as quickly as any player in the league, he is in the lane fast. The help defender is moving over just a second or two late, and Rose makes an athletic, acrobatic move to avoid the defender and spin in a bucket. You see the…

  22. Coach calls 0-4 Pistons out. Prince says “right back at ya.”

    Nov 3, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    Kuester_yells

    Unfortunately for the Pistons, the new season has picked up right where the old one left off — lots of injuries and losses. And now, the infighting. After the Pistons were manhandled by the Boston Celtics Wednesday, coach John Kuester called out his players for a lack of leadership, as reported by the Detroit Free…

  23. If Derrick Rose is an MVP candidate, what does that make Russell Westbrook?

    Oct 28, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    Derrick Rose has made it clear that he intends to produce at an MVP level this season, but he’s off to a bit of a rough start. In total, Rose’s numbers against the Thunder were nice: 28 points, six assists, four rebounds, and only two turnovers. That’s enough to get Rose into the discussion, if…

  24. Game of the Night: Bulls get reminder Kevin Durant and friends are good

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:22 AM EDT

    Ibaka_block

    Damn. This was so much more fun to watch than the slog that was Miami and Boston the night before. Wednesday night in Oklahoma City wasn’t perfect — it looked like an opener with some poor decisions because players are not used to the speed of the game — but it was exciting and athletic.…

    Wall_dunk

    Yes, the Heat have the three biggest stars we have seen on a team since the 1980s. Yes the Lakers are the two-time defending champs and may have more talent than any team in the league. We get it. You love them. We’ll talk about them plenty this season. But there is so much more…
