Mike Dunleavy

  1. Joakim Noah on Mike Dunleavy: ‘He’s finally giving Duke some credibility’

    Mar 14, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    In ESPN’s Fab Five documentary, Jalen Rose discussed how he felt about Duke while playing at Michigan. Rose: I hated Duke, and I hated everything I felt Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms. To many, that’s still the…

  2. Thursday NBA grades: Don’t make Mike Dunleavy angry

    Mar 14, 2014, 3:16 AM EDT

    Mike Dunleavy, James Harden

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while applying for maybe the best journalism job out there…. Mike Dunleavy, Chicago Bulls. Don’t make Mike Dunleavy angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Dunleavy had no points in the first half before Chandler Parsons caught Dunleavy just above the eye with an…

  3. Rockets don’t bring the energy, so Bulls bring the pain in securing a 24-point blowout victory

    Mar 13, 2014, 10:36 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    The Rockets came into Thursday night’s contest in Chicago with the league’s best record since Jan. 1, a 23-7 mark that included a record of 15-3 over the team’s last 18 games. But it’s difficult to bring the necessary energy on a nightly basis, and especially against a fiery Bulls team playing at home, not…

  4. Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy bloodied by elbow to the face, returns after getting 10 stitches (VIDEO)

    Mar 13, 2014, 9:31 PM EDT

    MIKE DUNLEAVY BULLS

    Midway through the second quarter of Thursday night’s contest between the Rockets and the Bulls, Mike Dunleavy set up to try and take a charge against Houston’s Chandler Parsons. It turned out to be not the greatest of ideas, as Parsons inadvertently caught Dunleavy with an elbow above the eye that caused a whole lot…

  5. 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…

  6. Taj Gibson, on a New York City subway, learned how ‘gangster’ Mike Dunleavy is

    Mar 5, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    Mike Dunleavy, Taj Gibson, Carlos Boozer

    Taj Gibson grew up in Brooklyn and attended USC. Mike Dunleavy graduated from a college-prep school in Oregon and attended Duke. They didn’t exactly have the same upbringings, but the Bulls teammates formed a bond years ago. On the New York City subway. Late at night. Once Dunleavy was already in the NBA. Gibson on…

  7. Some old-school Psycho T: Tyler Hansbrough tackles Mike Dunleavy (VIDEO)

    Feb 20, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors beat the Atlanta Hawks 104-83

    What’s impressive is that Tyler Hansbrough uses very good tackling form here — he gets low, drives with his legs, leads with his shoulder. Of course, because this was a basketball game between the Raptors and Bulls, Hansbrough and Mike Dunleavy received double technicals for this little incident. Late in the third quarter Dunleavy crashed into Hansbrough going…

  8. Kings’ Isaiah Thomas calls Celtics’ Jerryd Bayless a ‘fake tough guy’ after on-court incident (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    thomas bayless

    This is yet another example of why you don’t give a max contract to a player with the temperament of DeMarcus Cousins without the presence of any veterans on the roster to help with the team’s leadership. But this is only about him tangentially, so we’ll revisit this in a moment. Late in the fourth…

  9. Mike Dunleavy responds to DeMarcus Cousins’ clown comment with off-base stereotype of clowns

    Feb 5, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Mike Dunleavy

    DeMarcus Cousins called Mike Dunleavy a clown after the Kings beat the Bulls on Monday, the latest – but not first – run-in between the two. Dunleavy isn’t letting the feud end there, taking a couple retaliatory shots at Cousins. Dunleavy, via Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com “He called me a clown?” Dunleavy said after Tuesday…

  10. The Extra Pass: Talking Blazers, Clippers, coaching with Bill and Luke Walton

    Feb 5, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    Portland Trail Blazers fans are not fair weathered. They have stuck with the franchise through some dark times. Now they are being rewarded — with LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard leading the way, Portland fans are getting to witness some of the best, most entertaining basketball Rip City has seen in more than a decade.…

  11. DeMarcus Cousins on Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy: ‘He’s a clown’

    Feb 4, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Sacramento Kings

    The Kings beat the Bulls by 29 points on Monday, in a physical contest that got chippy at times. Joakim Noah was ejected after cussing out every referee on the floor, and apparently there were some exchanges once again between DeMarcus Cousins and Mike Dunleavy Jr. We say once again, because these two have a…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. John Wall hits the incredible circus shot against Bulls (VIDEO)

    Jan 17, 2014, 11:02 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    This is just nuts. Mike Dunleavy tried to stop John Wall from scoring on a fast break, and really, he did all he could without committing a flagrant foul. But Wall somehow got it to bank home anyway, despite being grabbed on the way to getting off this spinning, backwards circus shot while falling to…

  15. The Extra Pass: The Clippers’ “Rosie” Screen; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Over the next few days in this space, we’ll break down a play that’s largely unique to one team. To kick off this signature series, we’ll start with the Los Angeles Clippers’ “Ring-Around-The-Rosie” screen. Innovation in the NBA is often about adding little wrinkles to something very simple. There are no “Wildcat” offenses that take…

  16. Mike Dunleavy celebrates buzzer-beating half-court heave… that leaves Bulls down one

    Dec 17, 2013, 12:46 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    There’s an axiom that players should play as hard as they can until the buzzer sounds then look up at the scoreboard to see whether they won. To Mike Dunleavy’s credit, he did that Monday night against the Magic. (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward) Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day…

  17. The Extra Pass: Bucks are bad, and that’s good; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    John Henson

    By D.J. Foster All over the league, we’ve seen young teams fighting against the tank. If the playoffs started today, the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns would be in the playoffs. This was unfathomable a few months ago. It wasn’t just about their rosters being bad – they were supposed to be bad. The Milwaukee…

  18. 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…

  19. Report: Derrick Rose to have surgery Monday, likely to repair meniscus and end season

    Nov 24, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose will have surgery on his right knee on Monday, coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday. Rose has a choice with getting his torn right meniscus repaired, although both options involve surgery (and it depends somewhat on the tear itself). Both options have big impacts on the Bulls front office and its next move. One…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. The Extra Pass: Five observations from the East and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    After a busy Monday night in the NBA, let’s swing around the Eastern Conference for a few observations. Indiana: If Roy Hibbert keeps getting that “verticality” respect from officials, it’s goodnight, Irene time for all of the other the Defensive Player of the Year candidates. Look at these numbers: Per 36 minutes on his career: 2.6…

  23. Monday night NBA Grades: Lance Stephenson with the triple double

    Nov 12, 2013, 2:12 AM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while weeping that Lionel Messi will be out 6-8 weeks…. Lance Stephenson, Indiana Pacers. He had a triple-double with 13 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. He has played the most complete, efficient basketball of his young NBA career this season and it showed…

  24. Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving finish even as Bulls pull away to beat Cavaliers

    Nov 11, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    There was plenty of excitement surrounding the first ever matchup between Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving on Monday, but the game itself was largely devoid of any fireworks. Irving and Rose essentially played to a standstill in a contest that was mostly defense-oriented, and one that the Bulls pulled away to win easily by a final…

  25. 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…
