Luol Deng says nothing has changed.

Vinny Del Negro likes to insist nothing should be read into his exhibition starting lineups.
Doesn't he know what Bulls fans do for a hobby and sportswriters do for a living?

The Washington Wizards are jockeying for better playoff position. The Bulls simply are trying to stave off elimination from the Eastern Conference postseason party.

Do it again.
That's basically the challenge management issues when Joakim Noah and Tyrus Thomas flash signs of greatness, as they did Friday night at the United Center in the Bulls' 100-95 victory over the Cavaliers.

Pau Gasol, Zach Randolph and Eddy Curry. All have a low-post presence, and their teams stink! You and all the "experts" keep talking about the Bulls needing that presence. We had Curry, and guess what! We've gone further in the playoffs without him. After...
