  1. Scottie Pippen calls Carlos Boozer “liability”

    May 28, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Scottie Pippen was on fire Friday. Not in a “that man speaks the truth” way so much as a “he’s going to get a lot of ink” way. After lighting a fire with his Jordan/LeBron comments, Pippen spoke with ESPNChicago late on Friday and called out Carlos Boozer for his play for the Bulls in…

  2. Who is MVP? LeBron shut down Rose during series

    May 27, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Versatility. It was the key to why Miami was able to defeat Miami. While the Bulls had offensive and defensive specialists they tried to go with — Taj Gibson or Carlos Boozer? — the Heat could leave their best guys on the floor. And mix and match. Like have LeBron James guard Derrick Rose with…

  3. LeBron James: From “Decision” to “Decider”

    May 27, 2011, 4:11 AM EDT

    LeBron James Miami Heat

    A year ago, the most stunning thing about LeBron James was what he decided. He elected to reject his home-state fans, spurning friends and teammates to join both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Chicago. He went on a nationally televised special on ESPN in a plaid shirt with a neck beard and said the…

  4. Barkley says Nike overprotective of LeBron James

    May 26, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    In the ongoing feud between Charles Barkley and all things Miami Heat, Barkley has now drawn Nike into the fight. Not that he’s wrong. In the wake of fans chanting things at Barkley on the set and him responding with a finger gesture (a version of “you’re number one”), then Dwyane Wade backing the fans,…

  5. Winderman: Mike Miller gives Heat big thumbs up

    May 25, 2011, 3:20 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    What has no thumbs and yet could give the Heat a grip on the NBA title for the next few seasons? Mike Miller. Still recovering from preseason surgery on his right thumb and poised for offseason surgery on his left thumb, the veteran swingman stands as an example of how much a player with a…

  6. Thibodeau thinks Derrick Rose not getting the calls

    May 25, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Derrick Rose has averaged 6.5 free throws a game so far in the Eastern Conference Finals, which is down just slightly from the 6.9 trips to the line he averaged during the regular season. But Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was expecting a lot more. And he’s blaming the officials. Kind of. In an “I don’t…

  7. Video: Derrick Rose just abuses rim, Joel Anthony

    May 25, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In the first half of Tuesday night’s Game 4, Derrick Rose attacked the rim as hard as he has all playoffs. Maybe all season. He was determined to break down the Heat’s defense. One result of that was one of the best dunks of the playoffs — a monster throwdown where he weaves through the…

  8. Believe it or not, LeBron knows how Rose feels

    May 25, 2011, 4:20 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    People are going to want to act like LeBron James is relishing this. That there’s a part of James who is vindictively and sadistically savoring the kid who took his trophy failing like this. But it’s not like that among athletes, and it’s not like that between LeBron James and Derrick Rose. Because some part…

  9. Derrick Rose vows to be more aggressive in Game 4

    May 24, 2011, 10:20 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    For three games now, Derrick Rose has come off the top of the high screen and saw a line of defenders. Sometimes it’s a trap and a traditional double team. Sometimes its more of a soft double with the next guy just rotated over ready to come — the Heat have the athletes to come…

  10. Heat fans get on Barkley, he flips them off, idiocy ensues

    May 23, 2011, 8:06 PM EDT

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    I was on a talk radio show in Miami today, where they should be celebrating the fact that their team seems to be taking control of their series against the Bulls. And what was one of the big topics of the day? Charles Barkley flipping the bird to some Heat fans. I linked to the…

  11. Bulls need to space floor or things not going to change

    May 23, 2011, 12:41 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Derrick Rose had no room to operate. The minuscule gaps in defenses that he contorted his way through this season have disappeared the last couple games against the Heat. There is no room. Finally Carlos Boozer stepped up and gave the Bulls 26 points and 17 boards in Game 3. But that was not enough.…

  12. Carlos Boozer’s words motivated Chris Bosh, a little

    May 23, 2011, 11:53 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Back before the series, Carlos Boozer said that the Miami Heat have two great players. Which was taken as a dig at Chris Bosh. Because it was. Chris Bosh finally addressed it after dropping 34 points on Boozer and the Bulls in Game 3 (he also dropped 30 in Game 1). Well he kind of…

  13. NBA Playoffs Heat vs. Bulls Game 3: Advantage, home-court and otherwise

    May 22, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson

    How many times do you read the word “advantage” in sports? It’s used so frequently even in the face of the obviousness of what it implies. After all, what makes teams “bad” so often is a lack of advantage, or a lack of willingness to exploit that advantage. Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks is…

  14. When’s the $75 Million Boozer going to show up?

    May 21, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Carlos Boozer celebrates after a basket against the Atlanta Hawks during Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    So the Bulls are a pretty good team, right? Best record in the league, MVP Derrick Rose, top seed in the East, Conference Finals team with homecourt advantage (until Wednesday, at least). That’s pretty good. Except there’s just one problem that if the Bulls can solve, will mean their road to a championship and a…

  15. Derrick Rose and his history of Game 3s.

    May 21, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Sunday will mark Derrick Rose‘s fifth Game 3 of his career. As it’s kind of a pivotal game, and considering he played like MVPoo last game (“Get it?Bbecause he’s the MVP! It’s a pun! A humorous play on words that isn’t actually humorous! Let’s move on.”), it’s pretty important that Rose show up against the…

  16. Charles Barkley, Dwyane Wade having a little spat

    May 19, 2011, 2:52 PM EDT

    wadebarkley

    Charles Barkley and Dwyane Wade are not talking right now. Well, unless T-Mobile pays them to. Yahoo’s Kelly Dwyer tweeted this last night after the Heat evened their series against the Chicago Bulls. Overheard as I leave the UC. Dwyane Wade: “I’m not talking to you, man.” Charles Barkley: “What I do this time?” I…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Heat took the bloom off Derrick Rose

    May 19, 2011, 2:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Derrick Rose put up a 28-point game in the Bulls’ Game 1 victory and a 21-point game in their Game 2 loss on Wednesday. Those are good numbers. He remains the focal point of everything Chicago does on offense. But it has taken him 45 shots to get those 49 points. He is shooting 37.8…

  18. Video: Taj Gibson was a highlight factory Sunday night

    May 16, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Taj Gibson celebrates after a basket against the Atlanta Hawks during Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    We already showed you how the Bulls Taj Gibson was not very welcoming to Chicago native Dwyane Wade Sunday night. But tat was not all Gibson did. He also had the most spectacular of the 19 offensive rebounds the Bulls grabbed in Game 1, a thunderous putback for two. Another case of the Heat defense…

  19. Riley should remind Heat that no rebounds = no rings

    May 16, 2011, 1:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    The Miami Heat shot the ball just as well as the Chicago Bulls. It didn’t feel that way at all, but the Bulls shot 43.7 percent in Game 1 and the Heat shot 47.1 percent. Use effective field goal percentage to account for all the Bulls made threes and it is a nearly identical 49.4…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Bulls look like beasts of the East in Game 1

    May 15, 2011, 11:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    It was a line buried in PBT’s Game 1 preview but it ended up telling you all you needed to know — both of these teams can defend so it was about who got the easy buckets. For Chicago, that meant offensive rebounds — and they went out grabbed 19 of them, a full 41.7…

  21. NBA Playoffs Bulls-Heat Game 1: Defending Derrick

    May 15, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Let’s get this out of the way. Derrick Rose is going to average over 20 points per game in this series, and the only reason I’m putting that that low is because the trudging slow pace of the series due to the defense will limit how many opportunities he gets. Rose is not only a…

  22. Agent says Wade closer to being a Bull than you think

    May 14, 2011, 7:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    You conspiracy theorists who believe Tupac is alive, there was a guy on the grassy knoll and that aliens helped the Egyptians build the pyramids, you also believe LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had it all mapped out two years ago. The Miami Heat master plan. That’s not how it worked. It was…

  23. Derrick Rose’s game evolves as playoffs go on

    May 14, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    derrick_rose

    Derrick Rose was special this season. He attacked the rim with a reckless abandon on his way to 24.1 points and 7.4 assists per game, carrying the Bulls offense all the way to the conference finals, picking up an MVP trophy along the way. He did it driving in a straight line. Literally. He is…

  24. Does Bulls’ sweep of Heat this season matter now?

    May 13, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Bulls and Heat met three times in the regular season. Three times the Bulls won, a couple of close games and one pretty comfortably. Derrick Rose had big games, Chris Bosh struggled. But don’t make the mistake of thinking that matters much now. For one, the most recent of those games was in March…

  25. NBA playoff television ratings keep on climbing

    May 13, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    This has been a good NBA playoffs for TNT. Well, except for watching Kenny Smith take a long walk to a dull but large video board. Aside that it’s been great. TNT’s ratings are up 25 percent on the 33 games it has broadcast so far, reports Tom Ziller at SBN. That follows a patter…
