  1. Video: Watch Derrick Rose shred the Atlanta Hawks

    May 7, 2011, 8:29 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    What Derrick Rose did Friday night to the Atlanta Hawks is illegal in 14 states. He showed why he was named MVP. He showed why the Hawks were always going to be in a lot of trouble in this series, because they had nobody who could stop Rose. (Well, that and the Hawks were going…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Derrick Rose breaks free, torches Hawks for 44 in Game 3 win

    May 7, 2011, 12:41 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Atlanta Hawks managed to bother Derrick Rose in the first two games of this series by using their bigs to clog the middle of the floor on Chicago’s screen-and-rolls, but Rose seemed to have an epiphany of sorts in Game 3; rather than play conservatively in an attempt to exploit the Atlanta defense with…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Will the Bulls defense smother the Hawks again?

    May 6, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Game 2 looked like a Chicago Bulls game. Their defense just dominated the Atlanta Hawks, holding them to 73 points on 33.8 percent shooting. Then turn Derek Rose loose, and if he can get 25 points — even if it takes him 27 shots — that will be enough. The key to Game 3 really…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Bulls get back to basics, even up series against Hawks

    May 5, 2011, 1:00 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    If Game 1 between the Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks was an aberration — after all, the Hawks converted tough jumpers at an extremely high rate, and rode the high of those makes into a well-executed defense and an improbable victory — then Game 2 was oddly typical. The Bulls are no strangers to offensive…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Hawks give Bulls a run for their money on the boards

    May 4, 2011, 7:47 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer, Damien Wilkins, Al Horford

    In their Game 1 victory, the Atlanta Hawks pulled off a hell of a trick: not only did they completely negate one of the Chicago Bulls’ greatest advantages, but they did so in a way that flew completely under the radar. Sure, they bothered Derrick Rose and limited Carlos Boozer. They also took away Chicago’s…

  6. In case you thought otherwise Boozer, Rose to play Wednesday

    May 4, 2011, 1:17 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Charlotte Bobcats

    This was never really in doubt, but we’ll make it official: Carlos Boozer and Derrick Rose will play in Game 2 Wednesday night in Chicago. Coach Tom Thibodeau said everyone participated fully this morning at shootaround and good to go, according to the Associated Press. Boozer is battling turf toe and Rose is playing through…

  7. Video: Adidas new Derrick Rose MVP ad

    May 4, 2011, 8:59 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Well, you knew it wouldn’t take long for Adidas to jump on marketing Derrick Rose as MVP. And here it is, the first ad, featuring Rose’s quote from the beginning of the season wondering why he couldn’t have an MVP season, that he set that out as a goal for himself. It seemed to be…

  8. Nine voters leave LeBron James off MVP ballot completely

    May 3, 2011, 7:46 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s time for the annual cry for transparency in the NBA’s MVP voting. Because if you’re a media member with an MVP vote, you should be able to defend your choices. If you are one of the seven people who did not vote Derrick Rose first, you should be able to explain that. And for…

  9. Derrick Rose officially named MVP

    May 3, 2011, 5:24 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    We knew it was coming, seemingly forever, and as should be expected it was a runaway. Derrick Rose is the NBA’s MVP. The youngest ever at age 22. The most recent in Chicago Bull to win it since that guy with the statue out in front of the United Center. Rose becomes only the second…

  10. Report: MRI shows Grade 2 sprain on Derrick Rose’s ankle

    May 3, 2011, 2:54 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Pulling a page from the hockey playoffs playbook — Injury? What injury? — the Chicago Bulls did do an MRI on Derrick Rose’s left ankle (they denied they would) after he aggravated it Monday night on the final play of the Bulls loss to the Hawks. And the news isn’t good according to David Kaplan…

  11. X-rays negative on Derrick Rose’s ankle, but injury matters

    May 3, 2011, 12:06 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    The good news is Derrick Rose’s left ankle is no worse than it was last time. The bad news is that he has not been quite the same since he injured it last time and it really hit home with Chicago in its Game 1 loss. X-rays on Rose’s ankle were negative and no MRI is…

  12. Hawks leave tickets for Jameer Nelson to see Derrick Rose

    May 3, 2011, 10:40 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    In a game the final week of the season, when the Chicago Bulls beat the Orlando Magic, Derrick Rose was doing the standard, cliché-filled post-game television interview when Jameer Nelson interrupted to congratulate him. The exchange included Nelson telling Rose “see you in the second round.” Except, the Magic never got to the second round,…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta shocks Chicago in Game 1

    May 3, 2011, 2:09 AM EST

    Joe Johnson, Jeff Teague

    It’s time to go back to the drawing board, NBA world. These Atlanta Hawks apparently aren’t ready to crumble under the Chicago Bulls’ might just yet, as the underdog club — predicted by most to win but a single game in this series (or less), and predicted by yours truly to be overrun by Derrick…

  14. Derrick Rose injures ankle on final play of game

    May 2, 2011, 11:51 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Seriously, there is a time — and a reason — to back off a little when the game is over. Soon to be MVP Derrick Rose showed why Tuesday night. Rose rolled his ankle on the final, meaningless possession of the Bulls 103-95 loss to the Hawks Tuesday. With seven seconds left and the Hawks…

  15. Report (we all believe): Derrick Rose to be named MVP Tuesday

    May 2, 2011, 10:17 PM EST

    derrick Rose bulls

    At this point even LeBron James‘ mom has accepted that Derrick Rose is going to be MVP. That announcement is going to officially come Tuesday, according to a Aggrey Sam at CSN Chicago. Rose was the engine of the offense of a Chicago Bulls team that won 62 games. Actually, that understates it. He was…

  16. NBA Playoffs: With Hinrich out, Rose is set for an onslaught

    May 2, 2011, 6:01 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Kirk Hinrich is doubtful to play at all in the Atlanta Hawks’ series against the Chicago Bulls. As such, the Hawks are doubtful to even remain competitive in the series that will surely spell their playoff end. I hate to foretell a team’s postseason demise in such certain terms, but Hinrich’s absence makes it easy;…

  17. Bulls Tom Thibodeau named Coach of the Year

    May 1, 2011, 5:02 PM EST

    Tom Thibodeau

    UPDATE 5:02 pm: It’s official, Tom Thibodeau is your Coach of the Year. He will be honored before the Bulls game Monday night. As we said, this is well deserved. The Bulls had a roster with eight new players yet melded into a defensive power that finished with the best recoed in the NBA. Philadelphia’s…

  18. Derrick Rose says he doesn’t know anything about being MVP. Yet.

    Apr 30, 2011, 11:37 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Derrick Rose will be announced as the NBA’s MVP in the coming weeks. We all know it. But it’s not official yet. So it was a bit of a shock when Bulls guard C.J. Watson tweeted Friday: Congrats to drose on winning the MVP he’s played unbelievable this season!!! now just need tibs to win…

  19. Hawks’ Hinrich likely out for Game 1 with strained hamstring

    Apr 29, 2011, 9:23 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    As if the Hawks don’t face enough challenges taking on the top seeded Chicago Bulls in the second round, it now looks like they now have to go without their defensive-minded starting point guard for at least a game against Derrick Rose. So good luck with that. Kirk Hinrich pulled up lame with a hamstring…

  21. NBA Playoffs: It took five games, but Bulls play like contenders

    Apr 26, 2011, 11:56 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    This looked like what we all expected this entire series to look like. The Chicago Bulls dominated Game 5 Tuesday game from the start, were up 11 at the end of one quarter, pulled away in the third quarter and cruised to a 116-89 win. Now they sit around until next Monday (when the NBA…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Can The Bulls put the Pacers away?

    Apr 26, 2011, 6:03 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Everyone expected the Bulls to finish up their first-round series in four or five games, and that’s exactly what they would do with a win at home against the Pacers tonight. However, each of the first four games has been far more competitive than most people thought they would be, and the Pacers have shown…

  23. Derrick Rose: “It’s not broken, so I’m definitely playing”

    Apr 25, 2011, 10:58 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    As if you thought Derrick Rose was not going to play to close out the first round… Rose had an X-ray and an MRI, both of which came up negative, so he made it clear to Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago exactly how this was going down, including the needle. “It’s not broken, so I’m…

  24. Scottie Pippen calls out Carlos Boozer for lack of toughness

    Apr 25, 2011, 12:23 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    On the surface, the Chicago Bulls are about to get out of the first round when they win Tuesday against Indiana. And they will point to their star Derrick Rose averaging 28.3 points per game despite all the defensive attention. But the eight-seed Pacers have exposed some questions about the Bulls. Specifically, just how tough…

  25. Bulls’ Rose wearing “precautionary” walking boot for ankle; MRI negative

    Apr 24, 2011, 9:07 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    UPDATE 9:07 pm: According to Aggrey Sam over at CSN Chicago, Rose’s MRI came back negative. So, it is just a minor sprain. Which means like we say in the rest of this post, you can bet he plays the next game. 7:04 pm: Derrick Rose is go for Game 5. And you can expect…
