  2. Is Carmelo Anthony’s smart play to opt in and play out contract with Knicks?

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

  3. Steve Nash’s leg bothering him again, likely out until after All-Star break

    Feb 12, 2014, 1:05 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Lakers

    Steve Nash played his 10th game for the Lakers Tuesday night (maybe now some Lakers fans will finally let go of the medical retirement stuff that was never going to happen anyway). And he aggravated his nerve root injury. Again. Nash tried to play through it but that didn’t work. He said the back issue…

  4. Steve Nash leaves with nerve irritation, but Lakers believe it’s a short-term issue

    Feb 9, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Steve Nash was playing in just his third game since returning from injury on Sunday, before leaving in the third quarter against the Bulls with what was described as nerve irritation. Nash suffered a leg fracture and subsequent nerve damage that had sidelined him for all but six games before his recent return, and being…

  5. 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…

  6. PBT Extra: PBT does its own Rising Stars Challenge draft; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

  7. Report: Warriors among teams interested in trading for Kirk Hinrich

    Jan 7, 2014, 5:42 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    It would be a mistake to use the word “tank” with any Tom Thibodeau coached team, because he would not allow his teams to roll over like that. However, with the trade of Luol Deng it is clear Bulls management has moved on from trying to win this year (they brought the band back to…

  8. Jason Kidd, Brooklyn Nets come up empty against Chicago Bulls

    Dec 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans

    The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls woke up early, left on their sleeved Christmas pajamas and opened the NBA’s Christmas Day slate. Jason Kidd probably wishes he never got out of bed. A game after blasting his team for “kind of getting comfortable with losing,” Kidd oversaw Brooklyn’s 95-78 loss to Chicago on Wednesday, an…

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

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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,…

  12. Bulls still struggling to space floor without Derrick Rose

    Dec 18, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    John Henson, Marquis Teague, Ersan Ilyasova

    The Bulls shoot 55 percent in the restricted area (29th in the NBA) and 32 percent on 3-pointers (28th in the NBA). That’s a bad combination, and it goes a long way toward explaining why Chicago scores just 95.7 points per 100 possessions, the league’s third-worst mark. But if there’s a bright side for the…

  13. 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.…

  14. The Extra Pass: A Google goggle revolution dream, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  15. Jrue Holiday with the driving game winner in 3OT (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 1:18 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Chicago Bulls

    Chicago and New Orleans played one of the more epic matches of the season on Monday night — it wasn’t always pretty, but it was epic. And long. Triple-overtime long. There was no Derrick Rose, no Anthony Davis, yet still some good offense from both sides led by Luol Deng (37 points) and Ryan Anderson…

  16. Bulls’ Jimmy Butler out due to turf toe, not with team on six-game road trip

    Nov 20, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers

    Chicago has finally started to find a groove — a five-game win streak where their defense has been the best in the NBA (85 points per 100 possessions) and their offense has been good enough (14th in the league in that time). It’s been very Bulls basketball. Now, the basketball gods have thrown another hurdle…

  17. Jimmy Butler misses practice, needs MRI

    Nov 19, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Jimmy Butler – after suffering right toe injury in the third quarter of the Bulls’ win over the Bobcats on Monday, returning in the fourth quarter and then leaving again – pledged to be ready for Chicago’s next game. Via Mark Strotman of CSN Chicago: “I hurt it. I don’t really know how. But it’s…

  18. Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich could become dangerous backcourt combination

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls signed Kirk Hinrich before last season for two reasons: 1. Hinrich is starting-point guard caliber, someone who capable of filling in at the position while Derrick Rose was injured. 2. Once Rose got healthy, Hinrich could play with Rose in the backcourt. Hinrich held up his end of the bargain for No. 1.…

  19. Derrick Rose misses shootaround, “unlikely” to play Friday vs. Toronto

    Nov 15, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose tweaked his hamstring Monday night in the Bulls win over the Cavaliers (a game in which Rose was 8-of-21). It was described as “minor” — he was walking around, not limping — but hamstrings can be tricky things that need rest. Rose sat out practice Wednesday, then Friday he sat out shootaround in…

  20. Heat begin title defense with opening night blowout win over Bulls

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The Bulls were one of the fashionable preseason picks to dethrone the Heat this season, considering the return of Derrick Rose, the way Chicago has historically defended under Tom Thibodeau, and the fact that Miami is trying to become the first team to reach the Finals in four straight seasons since the Celtics did it 27…

  21. Thibodeau on Noah’s conditioning: “It’s not very good”

    Oct 23, 2013, 1:41 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Chicago has to find a way to get Joakim Noah healthy and keep him that way if they are serious about contending in the East this season. That has not started out on a great as he has battled a groin issue that has limited him all through training camp and will keep him out…

  22. Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich out with concussion suffered in preseason win vs. Pacers

    Oct 19, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    Kirk Hinrich is out for at least a few days after suffering a concussion during the Bulls’ preseason win over the Pacers on Friday. From Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago: “He’s out. He has a concussion,” Thibodeau said after Saturday’s practice. “Not sure (how long he’ll be out). Probably a couple days.” Thibodeau acknowledged that…

  23. Derrick Rose to sit out Bulls’ preseason game in Brazil due to knee soreness

    Oct 12, 2013, 4:42 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Rose attends a practice ahead of NBA Global Games Rio 2013 in Rio de Janeiro

    Derrick Rose looked great in his return to NBA action last week, showing every bit of the trademark speed and explosiveness we remembered seeing from the former MVP when he was last on the court almost 18 months prior. Rose was out for so long due to needing extended time to rehab from a torn…

  24. Derrick Rose says he won’t recruit free agents to play with him in Chicago

    Sep 18, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    d rose lebron

    Recruiting has always been a way of life in college sports, but free agents on the professional level have historically made decisions based more on money, location, and chances of winning (usually in that order) over everything else. But the league has shifted in recent years. There was a time when superstars relished the opportunity…

  25. Bulls to bring Mike James into camp… and he could make team

    Sep 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Mike James, Brian Roberts

    Over the past few years Mike James has been up in the NBA, then dumped, then brought back, then dumped again — a relationship that was more off-and-on than you with your college girlfriend/boyfriend. Now it looks like he could be back — and he might stick in Chicago. Marc Stein of ESPN first reported…
