I never thought I’d lobby for this. I never thought I would advocate for such a change. I never thought I’d cave in. But as much as I hate to say it, Derrick Rose has to be more like Dwyane Wade.
It’s a shame, it can become laughable,...

The Bulls couldn’t hit from the floor and couldn’t hit from the free-throw line. What else you got? Nerf basketball, anyone?
Derrick Rose was bad. Carlos Boozer was awful. Luol Deng was useless in the second half. Everybody else followed....

For all LeBron James might be looking for, for all he might want in free agency, here is what he needs:
Dwyane Wade's medical records.
Putting concerns aside about the HIPAA Privacy Rule, isn't that ultimately what James putting Pat Riley...

The Bulls finally had their full roster for Sunday’s game against the Knicks in New York. Fat lot of good it did them.
Their offense looked worse than ever and their help defense was a joke. I mean, by the end of the first quarter, I wanted to stop...

Derrick Rose is coming back to play his first real game in 18 months.
But he is not bringing another superstar with him. Drive home safely, Chicago.
Rose has looked terrific in exhibition games, attacking the basket as fearlessly as we remember and...

I have received several angry emails from people who don’t particularly care for the “We’re Not Going To Tank’’ Bandwagon that I’ve organized as I encourage the Bulls to drive toward the draft lottery.

Now the Bulls know what great looks like when great is required.
The Bulls put together a great regular season. They played hard every game. They played good or great a majority of those nights.
But great matters in the playoffs.
Great matters in the...

It’s not the prettiest thing. But it might be the most important.
As former championship coach Pat Riley once said, “No rebounds, no rings.’’ By the way, whatever happened to that Riley guy?
Anyway, Miami committed...

Dwyane Wade said the Bulls’ aggressive defense in the second half of Game 1 made sure “we weren't comfortable in offensive sets," and I’m wondering, the Heat have “sets’’?
Wait, isolation plays are considered “...

Have you been listening to LeBron James lately? I haven’t heard everything he has said, but what I’ve caught sounds like he’s refusing to use Derrick Rose’s name.
Intentionally refusing to use Rose's name. James has called Rose...

Most of the time, it has been Carlos Boozer in foul trouble or just shooting badly that brings Taj Gibson into the game and jazzes up the Bulls’ attack.
In Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, however, it was Gibson in foul trouble early in the...

Derrick Rose would appear to be facing the most important fourth quarter of his career tonight.
That’s what happens when your last two fourth quarters have been awful and your team has lost control of the Eastern Conference finals.
I mean, get a...
