I'm trying to read the tea leaves about the Bulls, and it's not easy.
Our dear Bullies took small forward Tony Snell out of New Mexico and power forward Erik Murphy out of Florida in the NBA draft, which tells me nothing. Snell is a tall, athletic...

It's been tough being a Chicagoan in recent years.
You can't pick up the paper or turn on the TV without hearing about violence, controversial parking meter deals, heartbreaking school closings or the latest politician who got indicted. Even an HBO show...

Chicago picked Murphy (6-10, 230) with the 49th selection of the draft.

The undermanned Bulls ended the Heat’s 27-game winning streak Wednesday night, and of course the 1972 Miami Dolphins popped champagne. Or something like that.
But with Nazr Mohammed starting -- no lie -- and Kirk Hinrich ripping the ball out of...

You owed us more.
Derrick Rose, if you sift through the city's anger, blind support, unhappiness and general confusion, you likely will find one overarching emotion: a deep-rooted disappointment.

In NBA playoff parlance, we call this a gift.
The beaten-up, struggling, Derrick-Rose-less Bulls get a first-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets, perhaps the dumbest team in the league.
The Bulls won three of the four games against the Nets...

NBA rule on basket interference: Section I-A Player Shall Not... Touch the ball when it is above the basket ring and within the imaginary cylinder. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau went ballistic when this basket was disallowed at the end of......

Don’t look now, and Derrick Rose apparently isn’t, but the Bulls franchise player’s image could become a five-alarm fire in the next two weeks.

Given that his playing time has fluctuated, dropping to a mere 9 minutes, 20 seconds in Orlando, Fla., some might say Jimmy Butler's role has diminished.

The Bulls' first quarter on Monday night could serve as an instructional manual on how not to return from a 2-0 trip that included a victory over the defending champion Heat.
The Bulls treated defense as if it were optional. They turned the ball over...

ATLANTA — Years from now when he looks back on his first NBA encounter with big brother Jeff, Marquis Teague said he will remember this: "We lost."
