  1. Team USA vs. Lithuania: 5 Things to Watch

    Aug 21, 2010, 9:19 AM EDT

    Team USA continues its exhibition schedule against international competition in advance of the FIBA World Championship today with a game against Lithuania. It’s an opportunity for USA to test their progress against a better team than the China squad they faced last weekend. Lithuania’s team may be made up primarily of second-tier players (like Team…

  2. Derrick Rose got his own, custom made Skittles machine. Top that Durant.

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:39 PM EDT

    Skittles are where it’s at. Forget Lamar Odom and his candy obsession, that’s just one M&M in the bag. More NBA players than you think love Skittles. I mean love. Michael Beasley sung their praises. Kevin Durant’s neighbors bring them to him. There are many more NBA players who you can always catch with a…

  3. Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls talking contract extension

    Aug 9, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    He’s one of the guys (along with Derrick Rose and Luol Deng) that the Bulls kept selling to free agents as an important part of their future, part of their core. So the Bulls had better lock up Joakim Noah to a longer term deal. And, according to Noah, via ESPNChicago.com, those talks are already…

  4. Derrick Rose is not broken up over missing out on T-Mac

    Jul 31, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose had been very high on the idea of signing Tracy McGrady earlier this week, back when that seemed like a good idea. You can’t blame Rose. It seems like a good idea to a lot of people at a particular moment in time. This particular moment in time is actually “before you’ve seen…

  5. The Bulls haven't completely ruled out signing Tracy McGrady, but aren't compromising

    Jul 30, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Tracy McGrady and Shaquille O’Neal seem to be one in the same. Neither can get the role or money (or affirmation?) they so desperately covet, and each will likely face the same choice: play for a team they actually want to play for in a limited role for a small salary, or sign with a…

  6. Derrick Rose says he is never leaving Chicago. Never.

    Jul 21, 2010, 8:59 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose apparently does not listen to or take advice from Justin Beiber. Which shows he is smart. He’s also not taking the advice of The Fray. And finally, he is clearly not listening to or taking the advice of the best of the three — Romeo Void. Rose said “never.” As in he is…

  7. Derrick Rose gets his wish, he is now the face of the Bulls

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    There was talk that one reason LeBron James soured on Chicago as the place he would be taking his talents was the shadow cast by Michael Jordan. Let’s hope that was not the case, because great players embrace the challenge of living up to the past of a legendary franchise (see Kevin Garnett and Kobe…

  8. C.J. Watson headed to Bulls

    Jul 20, 2010, 9:09 AM EDT

    Chicago now has its backup for Derrick Rose. The Bulls will acquire C.J. Watson in a sign-and-trade with the Golden State Warriors. Watson will get three years, $10.2 million, and the Warriors will get a second round pick and a thinner bench. The Warriors had the right to match the offer but have chosen to…

  9. Rajon Rondo is unphased by the Team USA mystique

    Jul 19, 2010, 1:21 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo has never seemed all that interested in playing for Team USA. He kind of brushed off the initial invite to participate in this summer’s tryout (He apparently couldn’t be bothered to get back to Team USA czar Jerry Colangelo), and though he was officially added to the national team’s roster last week, he…

  10. The Bulls make a good value signing with Ronnie Brewer, but at what cost?

    Jul 16, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls have been looking to upgrade their wing production this off-season, but in their close-minded desire to achieve that goal, they’ve made a bit of an odd move. According to Sam Smith of Bulls.com, Chicago will sign shooting guard Ronnie Brewer to a three-year, $12.5 million deal. For those counting at home, that’s…

  11. Team USA: The B-Team that actually wants to be there

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

    Yahoo! Sports reports that Jerry Colangelo has confirmed that not a single player from the 2008 Olympic team will join Team USA for the World Championships in Turkey this summer.  In the midst of a public outpouring of rage and disgust over the behavior of how and where various free agents decided to exercise their…

  12. Chicago Bulls reach deal with sharpshooter Kyle Korver

    Jul 9, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    There is the floor-spreading shooter the Bulls needed to round out their roster. Kyle Korver has agreed to a three-year, $15 million deal with the Chicago Bulls, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. This is very good deal for Chicago. New coach Tom Thibodeau plans to bring in a drive-and-kick offense to Chicago, with Derrick…

  13. Bulls will do what they can, and move (sigh) Carlos Boozer and David Lee to the top of their wish list

    Jul 7, 2010, 12:38 PM EDT

    Coming into free agency, the Chicago Bulls seemed to have it all: an up-and-coming point guard, a solid big man, one of the market’s most coveted coaches, decent role-playing talent, and oodles of cap space. The world was theirs, though now there’s a slight problem — it isn’t. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade have both…

  14. Did Derrick Rose prefer Joe Johnson to LeBron James?

    Jul 6, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Would you rather have Joe Johnson or LeBron James on your team? Exactly. It’s not even close. Even if you think there are flaws with LeBron’s game, there are far fewer than Johnson. LeBron is a true first option. Joe Johnson is a true second option on a title team. LeBron is a true max…

  15. What LeBron would mean to Chicago: $$$

    May 31, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James isn’t just a basketball player. Well, he is that, a damn good one. But he’s grown beyond that into a brand. A franchise unto himself. Someone that takes a team to manage. The man prints money. So with “LeBron fever” rivaling or surpassing “Blackhawks fever” in Chicago right now, the Chicago Business Journal…

  16. Report: Lebron James, John Calipari being shopped as package deal.

    May 17, 2010, 1:46 AM EDT

    Buy one, get the second one at an exorbitant full price. And it may be worth it. May. According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls are one of the team that have been approached about interest in a LeBron James and John Calipari package deal. League sources said Sunday that noted NBA power broker William…

  17. LeBron to Chicago suddenly hot rumor of the day

    May 12, 2010, 9:15 PM EDT

    Last night’s performance by LeBron James dumped gasoline on the rumor mill. It’s been an out of control fire, a day of speculation and guesswork all over the Web. But nowhere was that flame hotter than when ESPN’s Chris Broussard went on television and said that if James decides to leave Cleveland, the Chicago Bulls…

  18. John Calipari would like to coach Derrick Rose again in Chicago

    May 4, 2010, 10:08 PM EDT

    We said it before, we’ll say it again: The Bulls can’t fire Vinny Del Negro and then replace him with just another retread coach. If they want to be considered contenders again, want to draw the big free agents, they need to make a splash with the hire. And Phil Jackson took himself out of…

  19. Bulls might be reeling Del Negro in off the hook

    May 2, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    The Bulls are going to fire head coach Vinny Del Negro, right? I mean, it’s been talked about for months. And there was actually a physical confrontation between Del Negro and VP Paxson. There’s no way he survives through Tuesday. ..OR IS THERE?! Sorry, been watching old mysteries all weekend. The Chicago Daily Herald reports…

  20. The Bulls have double the (cap) space in mind

    May 1, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    The thought was that the Bulls, though undoubtedly having some front office troubles and suffering with a lack of scoring, were in pretty good shape. They have the cap space to sign a max free agent (if possible, Dwyane Wade, if not, Chris Bosh, and the last plan is likely Joe Johnson). And one of…

  21. Joakim Noah latest Bull to support Vinny Del Negro

    Apr 29, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Players support their coaches. We’ve all seen just terrible college football coaches — guys who needed the axe — having players making public offers of support. Normally you don’t read too much into that. But the public support for Vinny Del Negro by Bulls players — particularly Derrick Rose — has to give the Bulls…

  22. Deron Williams thinks he's the best point guard in the league

    Apr 28, 2010, 4:24 PM EDT

    Deron Williams speaks the truth. Debatable truth, but truth. He did it at shootaround today, before his Jazz try to eliminate the Nuggets tonight. He told the Denver Post and other assembled media: “I think I’m the best point guard in the league. … I thought I was the best point guard in the league…

  23. Vinny Del Negro to twist in the wind while Bulls management pretends to think about decision

    Apr 28, 2010, 12:47 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro’s Bulls put up a fight. They did not back down from the mighty Cavaliers. LeBron James talked about their energy, and said the Bulls were well coached. Sure, the Bulls only won one game, but they were completely overmatched. All you can ask in that situation is to see some fight, and…

  24. Kobe Bryant still king of NBA Jersey sales, LeBron is queen, Celtics fans will buy anything.

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant. Love him or hate him, you buy his gear. Admit it. The Lakers sudden defensive stopper topped the sales chart at NBA.com and the NBA Store in Manhattan for the second straight year, according to a league announcement Wednesday. LeBron James was second, because really the NBA is all about LeBron and Kobe…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Bulls fight valiantly, but the Cavs are still the Cavs

    Apr 28, 2010, 1:08 AM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls were neither deep enough nor talented enough to pose much of a threat to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they competed. They worked defensively and made things as difficult as they could for LeBron and co., but facing an opponent with so many scoring options and such chemistry ultimately proved to be too…
