Bulls Win; Rose Health Remains Thorny Issue

November 6, 2014

Thursday thoughts (well, something akin to such things) while wondering whether Derrick Rose is getting all the injuries out of the way at the beginning of his career: * Still hobbled by sprained ankles, Rose had 13 points and seven assists in 31 minutes Wednesday at Milwaukee in a 95-86 victory vs. the Bucks. “Even […]

Losing Sleep, But Not Over Bulls With Butler Back

November 2, 2014

Sunday smorgasbord: What’s this abut falling back and saving an hour’s sleep? Somehow it never fails that your humble correspondent manages to lose an hour’s sleep when Daylight Saving Time rolls around. Regardless of all that, it says here that Chicago Bulls fans should have slept well Saturday night/Sunday. * The reason for Bulls fans […]

Here We Go Again? Rose Hurt in Bulls Loss

November 1, 2014

Rarely is the second contest in an NBA season a statement game. And if Friday night’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Chicago Bulls game was a statement game, then from a Bulls perspective the statement would have to be: “Ouch!” And not merely because the LeBron James-led Cavs prevailed 114-108 in overtime in the Bulls’ home opener. Bulls guard […]

Bulls’ Pitch Courtship of Carmelo a Brief Fling?

July 2, 2014

Midweek musings: The Chicago Bulls’ courting of Carmelo Anthony on the first day of free agency occurred Tuesday at the United Center. The Bulls featured him on signage outside the building. That’s supposed to impress him when the New York Knicks can have him on a much larger-than-life video board in Times Square? * As […]

Bulls Aim to Improve Offense With McDermott

June 27, 2014

With the 16th and 19th picks in the 2014 NBA draft, the Chicago Bulls obtained Doug McDermott. Which is pretty much what happened when the Bulls made a trade Thursday with the Denver Nuggets, who had selected the Creighton University star with the No. 11 pick. A good move by the Bulls (at least on […]

Bulls Keep Sixers on Road to NBA Futility Mark

March 23, 2014

You want to know what is really incredible about the Philadelphia 76ers’ apparent attempt to be positioned to have the top pick in the 2014 draft? After their 24th consecutive loss Saturday to the Chicago Bulls, they still didn’t have the worst record in the league. The Sixers (15-55) trail the Milwaukee Bucks (13-56) for […]

LeBron Faces Reality of Loss to Bulls in OT

March 10, 2014

Monday meanderings: Who was that unmasked man? None other than LeBron James of the Miami Heat. The guy who scored 61 points last Monday while wearing a mask to protect a broken nose. The guy who went 8-of-23 from the field Sunday in a 95-88 overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. […]

Fredette a Sure Bet to Be Bulls Fan Favorite

March 3, 2014

Monday meanderings: And the award for best newcomer in a supporting role goes to Jimmer Fredette. His performance as a Chicago Bulls reserve might not have been worthy of an Oscar (Robertson, not the Academy Awards variety), but it was sufficient to excite Bulls fans in a 109-90 victory Sunday at the United Center. It […]

Bulls’ “Nutcracker” a Smashing Success

December 22, 2013

A pressbox colleague wondered why I was at Saturday night’s Cleveland Cavaliers-Chicago Bulls game at the United Center. “Wife kick you out of the house?” he wondered. No. And please don’t give her any ideas. Truth be told (and I told the guy), the reason for attending a contest between teams that are far from […]

Slice of Life: Surgery Ends Season for Bulls’ Rose

November 26, 2013

Random thoughts while wondering whether the headline for today’s effort shouldn’t really be: “Slice of Life: Surgery Ends Season for Bulls, Rose”: * The Chicago Bulls lost to the Utah Jazz 89-83 in overtime Monday in Salt Lake City. The Jazz entered the game with a 1-14 record, worst in the NBA. The loss occurred […]
