  1. 2014 PBT Awards: All-Defensive Team

    Only one player made all three first teams, and he plays for the Houston Rockets

    The Bulls ball movement was crisp and that led to Taj Gibson throwing down all over

  4. 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…

  5. Jimmy Butler runs length of court through stands during play

    Mar 2, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert, Jimmy Butler

    Leaping over a row of seats to save a loose ball isn’t easy, but players typically get a running start on the court first. Getting back onto the court, starting with no momentum and in a crowd, can prove a little more difficult. The Bulls’ Jimmy Butler definitely found a creative solution in Chicago’s win…

  6. 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…

  7. Doc Rivers says Bulls would be “nuts” to let Tom Thibodeau leave

    Jan 24, 2014, 5:38 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    Tom Thibodeau is old school, hard-driving, a work-a-holic who is in to win now no matter who is on the roster. If Jimmy Butler has to play 60 minutes in a 3OT game, so be it. Wins are what matter. Those kinds of coaches, even when they have success, can wear on players and an…

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  9. Get a Bulls credit card, the players follow you everywhere (VIDEO)

    Jan 16, 2014, 4:46 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets

    Local advertising is the best. This is a BMO Harris Bank credit card ad out of Chicago, where you can get a Chicago Bulls card… and if you do Jimmy Butler and Joakim Noah follow you everywhere. Which could get a little awkward, but at least Noah knows where the potholes around town are.

  10. The Extra Pass: Vince Carter had a front row seat for the “Miracle on Hudson” plane crash

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  11. Wednesday night NBA grades: Greg Oden is back — that is a story worth celebrating

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

  12. Cavaliers trade Andrew Bynum to Chicago Bulls for Luol Deng

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:30 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Not only was Luol Deng on the trade market, the Chicago Bulls had a taker — the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Chicago Bulls have agreed to trade Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Andrew Bynum and a first round pick (the Kings’ pick owned by the Cavs that is top 12 protected this season, top…

  13. Report (out of New York): Bulls want to trade Deng, amnesty Boozer

    Jan 6, 2014, 4:35 PM EDT

    deng

    This may or may not be true, but know that when a New York columnist starts talking about a player on another team that the Knicks might want to get some day, we take the report with a healthy grain of salt. With that, this is from the pen (or computer, I guess) of Mitch…

    If the end of a year serves as a time for reflection and the remembrance of lessons learned, then let the video below serve as one last reminder for the small guards of the league. If LeBron James is coming at you on a break, move. If DeAndre Jordan is flying down the lane towards…

  15. Chicago Bulls-Brooklyn Nets is NBA’s worst Christmas Day matchup since…

    Derrick Rose

    The NBA has built a Christmas Day empire by featuring the league’s top teams and players on Dec. 25. It’s become an honor to play this day, and those in the league recognize the accomplishment of getting on the schedule. Fans see it too, annually expecting to see the NBA at its regular-season best. That’s…

  16. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  17. The Extra Pass: Chicago’s never-ending story, plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Nets Bulls Basketball

    In the early days of mixed martial arts, there were quite a few athletes who would refuse to submit in the ring. Their arm could be on the verge of snapping, but it didn’t matter – they wouldn’t give up. They would rather break their arm. I remember holding these athletes in such high regard,…

  18. Chicago columnist hammers Derrick Rose as no longer humble star

    Dec 19, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Derrick Rose is loyal. Don’t believe me? Remember when he said he wanted to roll with with Keith Bogans as his two guard rather than recruit other guys to shake up the roster? It’s just who he is. Then came the report out of the New York Daily News (not a local source) that Rose…

  19. Report: D.J. Augustin reaches deal with Chicago Bulls

    Dec 11, 2013, 7:23 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    We told you this was coming and now a real has been reached: D.J. Augustin is about to be a Chicago Bulls. Augustin cleared waivers on Wednesday and has reached a deal as a free agent with Chicago, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Augustin needs to pass a physical with the Bulls on Thursday.…

  20. Charlie Brown Christmas becomes “Tanking Time is Here” for Bulls (VIDEO)

    Dec 11, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    a-charlie-brown-christmas

    That’s bloody brilliant. It’s my new favorite NBA Christmas video. The Bulls had kept the band together to make one more run at a title with Derrick Rose leading them, but when Rose went down that dream was dashed and it was time to talk retooling the roster. You can bet Luol Deng will be…

  21. The Extra Pass: The league’s leading lineups; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    After watching two of the league’s best starting lineups duke it out in Indiana, let’s check in on the best and worst lineups around the league so far this season. Best Net Efficiency Rating (minimum 150 minutes) Houston: Patrick Beverley-James Harden-Chandler Parsons-Terrence Jones-Dwight Howard Net efficiency is the difference between a team’s offensive rating and…

  22. Report: Bulls likely to sign D.J. Augustin once he clears waivers

    Dec 10, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    How much do the Chicago Bulls miss Derrick Rose at the point? It looks like they are going to pick up D.J. Augustin, who was waived Monday by the Toronto Raptors. So reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The Bulls lost superstar point guard Derrick Rose for the season, and have been searching for further…

  23. Jason Kidd making defensive changes, trying to shake up Nets

    Dec 7, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    It’s all on Jason Kidd now. Lawrence Frank is gone as a scapegoat, Kidd is in charge of the ship — a 5-14 ship with the worst defense in the NBA. You can see how bad the defense is by looking at the stats, where you see the Nets give up a league-worst 108.6 points…
