  1. Report: Joakim Noah recruiting Carmelo Anthony to Chicago Bulls

    Mar 6, 2014, 10:36 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Joakim Noah, Carmelo Anthony

    Reports Carmelo Anthony could sign with the Chicago Bulls this offseason are nothing new. Even Melo has stoked the flames of the rumors. But most published work on the subject has focused on where Melo desires to play. Sure, by trading Luol Deng for Andrew Bynum and draft picks, the Bulls signaled a greater interest…

  2. Report: Carmelo Anthony’s camp doesn’t want to wait for 2015 Knicks rebuild

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…

  3. Carmelo Anthony admits his optimism is being tested. What about desire to stay in New York?

    Feb 24, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Orlando Magic

    With 26 games left to go in the season, the New York Knicks are 5.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the East. Let that sink in for a second. The eight seed Atlanta Hawks are on pace to win 39 games this season, to get there the Knicks need to go 18-8…

  4. Report: Damian Lillard to jump ship from adidas this summer

    Feb 24, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    DamianLillardDC

    Damian Lillard — Mr. Five Events All-Star Weekend — is one of the NBA’s rising stars. A point guard who plays with flair on an entertaining team. Those kinds of players sell a lot of shoes. Which makes the news that Damian Lillard is likely opting out of his adidas contract this summer very interesting.…

  5. LeBron, Kobe lead Forbes top 10 list of NBA endorsers

    Feb 19, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Lebron James,Kobe Bryant,  Andre Iguodala

    Forbes released its top 10 list of off-the-court NBA earners this week, and not surprisingly, a couple of the game’s biggest stars lead the pack. Before we get to the complete list, something stands out when looking at the dollars the top NBA athletes rake in, especially when compared to other sports’ stars. Thanks to…

  6. Kevin Durant extremely tired of LeBron James comparisons

    Feb 16, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Kevin Durant and LeBron James have pulled away from the field, setting up what could be a thrilling head-to-head finish down the stretch for Most Valuable Player. Durant is having the better season so far. There’s little question about that. With Russell Westbrook out, Durant has put the Thunder on his back, raising his game…

  7. Dwight Howard, on whether LeBron or Durant is league’s best: ‘I have to believe in myself as being the best player’

    Feb 15, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Dwight Howard is back to being the player we saw in Orlando before undergoing back surgery in the summer of 2012, but whether or not the league’s fans are all the way back to adoring him the way they did after multiple dunk contest titles remains a bit of a question. Howard turned fans off…

  8. Thursday night NBA grades: Kevin Durant is just not fair

    Feb 14, 2014, 4:42 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Orlando Magic

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while checking out Michael Jordan’s UNC transcripts…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. I’ve just run out of superlatives. He’s your MVP. He’s the best pure scorer walking the face of the earth. He could have saved Krypton from destruction in the first place. On his…

  9. Tom Thibodeau commends Derrick Rose’s present and future attitude

    Feb 13, 2014, 5:45 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    Remember when so many people question Derrick Rose’s desire as he sat out all of last season? Thankfully, those critics have mostly faded away this season. (Though it’s a darn shame we have another lost Rose season to compare to the first one) This time, Rose has set the tone of his comeback, and “You…

  10. Rose says he has not thought about returning to Bulls this season. Team USA this summer… maybe.

    Feb 13, 2014, 1:03 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The Chicago Bulls are going to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, and because it’s the East if they win a round nobody will be surprised. But they are trying to avoid last year’s tedious “will he/won’t he” return saga withg Derrick Rose. Bulls coach Tim Thibodeau got out in front of that already…

  11. John Wall: People see me as a No. 1 pick who hasn’t done anything

    Feb 11, 2014, 4:22 PM EDT

    John Wall, LeBron James

    Professional athletes love to talk about all the people who don’t believe in them, even if everyone believes in them. Some get creative. Throughout his NBA career, Michael Jordan referenced a high school coach cutting him. That was because nobody really doubted Jordan during his time at North Carolina and with the Chicago Bulls. But…

  12. Jeff Van Gundy: No NBA coach does better with his team than Tom Thibodeau with Bulls

    Feb 11, 2014, 3:28 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau, Mike Dunleavy

    Say whatever else you want about him, but Tom Thibodeau’s Bulls have never underachieved during the regular season. Thibodeau took over a .500 team and turned it into a 62-win squad his first year. The next season, the lockout-shortened 2011-12, Chicago was even better, going 50-16. With Derrick Rose out all of last year, the…

  13. Bulls start fast but can’t stop Stephen Curry, hot shooting Warriors comeback

    Feb 7, 2014, 2:42 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    This was a meeting of two of the four best defenses in the NBA (yes, Golden State is one of the top four defenses in the NBA, it’s why they are a playoff threat). The difference between the teams is Golden State has a player in Stephen Curry who is an elite scorer and can…

  14. Giannis Antetokounmpo to compete in Skills Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Typically, rookies don’t get noticed. Typically, players from overseas need more time to build an American following. Typically, Milwaukee Bucks are ignored. Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely atypical. “The Greek Freak” has wowed fans all season with his long arms, diverse skillset and outward happiness. He’s been so impressive, he’ll be competing in Skills Challenge –…

  15. Wednesday And-1 Links: “The Justice League Goes Inside the NBA: All Star Edition” comic book exists

    Inside the NBA comic book

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • I LOVE that this exists. DC Comics has teamed with TNT’s “Inside the…

  16. Carlos Boozer not pleased with his frequent fourth-quarter benchings

    Feb 3, 2014, 3:44 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau, Carlos Boozer

    Starting lineups get the most attention, and Carlos Boozer has started for the Bulls since signing with them in 2010. But closing lineups might be more important, and Boozer isn’t part of Chicago’s. He’s played just 117 fourth-quarter minutes all season – ninth on the team. In fact, he’s nearly as close to 12th-place Derrick…

  17. Report: Bulls discussed Taj Gibson trade with Lakers, Wizards and Bobcats

    Jan 31, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  19. Luol Deng would consider re-signing with Chicago Bulls this summer

    Jan 26, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng

    The Chicago Bulls, if they amnesty Carlos Boozer, will have significant cap room this summer. They’d have viable starters at point guard (Derrick Rose), shooting guard (Jimmy Butler), power forward (Taj Gibson) and center (Joakim Noah). That would leave a hole at only small forward, assuming Tony Snell isn’t ready to step into a bigger…

  20. Report: If Carmelo Anthony leaves New York, he is leaning toward Chicago

    Jan 25, 2014, 6:29 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls vs New York Knicks

    In the end, I still believe that Carmelo Anthony will be a New York Knick next season. When he surveys all his options, he will choose Manhattan, he will choose to go down as a Knicks’ legend. But ‘Melo is going to look at his options closely. His amazing 62-point performance aside, the 16-27 Knicks’…

  21. Pau Gasol not sure if he will play for Spain in 2016 Olympics

    Jan 23, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    pau gasol spain olympics

    Spain has the second best national basketball team in the world. Anchored in the paint by brothers Marc Gasol and Pau Gasol, plus with a host of good guards such as Jose Calderon and Ricky Rubio, they have won two Olympic silver medals in a row, able to beat out every nation on earth save…

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    When Team USA takes the court in Rio in 2016 to defend its gold medal, you can expect to see somethings old and somthings new — guys who won gold in London and Beijing will be mixed with newcomers who got their real first taste of USA Basketball this coming summer in Spain for the…

    Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers  – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

  24. Trade is official: Nets get Marquis Teague, Bulls land Tornike Shengalia

    Jan 21, 2014, 12:50 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    We told you this trade was coming last Friday night, now it is official: The Chicago Bulls have sent Marquis Teague to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Tornike Shengalia, the teams have announced. What the Bulls get is money — the little-used Shengalia can and will be let go after this season. Teague is…

  25. PBT Podcast: Is Lance Stephenson an All-Star?

    Jan 17, 2014, 5:49 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets vs Indiana Pacers

    Lance Stephenson‘s 28 points on the Knicks — and how he plays with a real flair — has a lot of people around the NBA asking if he is an All-Star? That’s the first topic in the latest edition of the ProBasketballTalk Podcast, featuring myself and Brett Pollakoff of PBT, plus Eytan Shander of NBC…
