  9. 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…

  11. 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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    Mar 3, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Warriors Raptors Basketball

    Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

  17. Report: Cavaliers considering agent Mark Bartelstein for front-office role

    Feb 14, 2014, 2:05 PM EDT

    David Griffin

    The NBA is a copycat league, which is good new for agents who want to become team executives. Two of the league’s most successful teams – both on the court and with salary-cap outlook – employ former agents in their front office. Lon Babby is the Suns’ President of Basketball Operations, and Bob Myers is…

  18. 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…

  19. Bulls energy, defense too much for Nets in easy Chicago win

    Feb 13, 2014, 11:30 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls

    Last year in the first round of the playoffs the Bulls defeated the Nets because they were tougher — their energy, their execution, their aggressive, physical style of play knocked the Nets off their game. It felt like finesse against power, and power won. Even if the Bulls were without their MVP. So this summer…

  20. Tom Thibodeau won’t talk to players about their performances without rehearsing conversation first

    Feb 12, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau, Jimmy Butler, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson

    Tom Thibodeau rides his players hard. He plays his starters a ton of minutes, asks everyone to defend physically and doesn’t tolerate loafing. In many ways, Thibodeau seems more like a college-style coach than an NBA coach. Of course, Thibodeau is an NBA coach with NBA players, some of whom have more power in the…

  21. The Extra Pass: Three players who are ready to start

    Feb 12, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    Let’s take a look at three players who were in action Tuesday night who deserve starting jobs sooner rather than later.

With Thabo Sefolosha struggling to find his…

    Feb 7, 2014, 3:34 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about how strange the 1904 Olympic marathon in St. Louis was…. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. After a decent shooting first quarter (but one the Warriors as a team would like to forget) Curry got hot — 10-of-14 shooting, 4-of-5 from three, 28…

  23. 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…

  24. Bulls’ GM “disappointed” Carlos Boozer went public with being unhappy

    Feb 4, 2014, 11:39 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Chicago Bulls

    Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau doesn’t play Carlos Boozer much in the fourth quarter of games because… well, Thibodeau likes defense. The combination of Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson plays better at that end of the floor late in games. Boozer only is in when he has a clear interior matchup advantage. Boozer doesn’t like that,…
