The Derrick Rose Dilemma: How Do You Solve a Problem Like an ACL?
November 13th, 2012 at 1:50 PM
The Chicago Bulls worry me right now, and it has nothing to do with Kirk Hinrich's injury or the lack of anything resembling consistent bench production. No, the source of my worry is one Derrick Martell Rose. Specifically, Derrick Martell Rose's left knee. ***PHOTO1*** With reports surfacing that Rose has started cutting in...

Chicago Bulls Add Three-Time Slam Dunk Champion Nate Robinson: the Offseason from Hell Marches On
July 30th, 2012 at 10:35 PM
So, as the header on this post might suggest, the Chicago Bulls are going to sign point guard Nate Robinson, formerly of the Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks. Presumably, this will be a deal for the minimum, likely for just one year. There's...

Chicago Bulls Wave Goodbye to C.J. Watson and Ronnie Brewer
July 10th, 2012 at 8:47 PM
***PHOTO1*** We figured this day was coming for quite some time, but even so, it's still a tough pill to swallow when two key members of your team the last couple of seasons are let go. That's exactly what happened to the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday, as they declined to...

Chicago Bulls Stuck in Neutral as Other Contenders Improve
July 9th, 2012 at 3:17 PM
The Miami Heat have added Ray Allen for cheap. The Los Angeles Lakers have landed Steve Nash in exchange for draft picks. The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Joe Johnson and are possibly on the verge of getting Dwight Howard for very little. Countless other teams have made moves to bolster their...

Chicago Bulls Target Brandon Roy Agrees to Deal with Minnesota Timberwolves
July 5th, 2012 at 10:30 PM
***PHOTO1*** In news that certainly does not come as a shock (at least to me), the Chicago Bulls fell short in the Brandon Roy sweepstakes after the guard agreed to a two-year, $10.4 million deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The decision was first reported by Jason Quick of The Oregonian, and was...

Chicago Bulls Offer Point Guard Kirk Hinrich a Contract to Return to Chicago
July 2nd, 2012 at 4:56 PM
On the heels of news breaking yesterday that Omer Asik was likely leaving Chicago, it came out that the Bulls had met with free agent point guard Kirk Hinrich and had offered him a contract to return to the city where he began his career. ***PHOTO1*** Terms of the contract aren't known yet,...

Report: Former Illinois Guard Demetri McCamey to Play with Chicago Bulls Summer League Team
June 29th, 2012 at 4:07 PM
I watched Demetri McCamey for four frustrating years at the University of Illinois. The kid has talent, but he's also pretty much the epitome of inconsistency. Played like a first round draft pick one night, and then slogged through a miserable performance the next. Combine that with some attitude issues...

Analyzing the Chicago Bulls’ 2012 NBA Draft
June 29th, 2012 at 12:06 PM
Heading into the 2012 NBA Draft, I admitted to having no idea what the Chicago Bulls were going to do. The Luol Deng rumors that had been whipping around earlier in the week had died down, which was somewhat disappointing, yet expected. As much as I love Deng, I was...

Chicago Bulls GM Gar Forman Talks Marquis Teague, Luol Deng Trade Rumors
June 29th, 2012 at 12:55 AM
Heading into the 2012 NBA Draft, most Chicago Bulls fans did not have Kentucky point guard Marquis Teague on their radar. Hell, Bulls management did not even have him on their radar, because nobody thought that he would fall to 29. But when the Bulls were finally on the clock,...

Chicago Bulls Select Kentucky Point Guard Marquis Teague with 29th Pick in 2012 NBA Draft
June 28th, 2012 at 9:44 PM
The Chicago Bulls selected a point guard with the 29th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, but it was not Tyshawn Taylor as rumored earlier in the day. Instead, the Bulls snagged Kentucky point guard Marquis Teague, who unexpectedly fell to the end of the first round.  Teague - the younger...

Derrick Rose Injury Has Chicago Bulls Linked to Jonny Flynn and Rafer Alston
June 28th, 2012 at 3:44 PM
Derrick Rose's ACL injury was a huge bummer. Obviously. The Chicago Bulls' 2011-12 championship hopes were completely shot and the future of the team was put into question. Combine the Rose injury with the impending departure of Rose's backup C.J. Watson due to the dastardly luxury tax, and we get...

Report: Chicago Bulls Looking to Draft Kansas’ Tyshawn Taylor
June 28th, 2012 at 12:09 PM
Just minutes ago, I was talking about how I really wanted no part of Kansas point guard Tyshawn Taylor. While the guy has talent, his terrible decision-making and poor basketball IQ would make him a very meh selection for the Bulls, at least to me. I'd much rather just live...

Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose on Cover of NBA 2K13 Along with Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin
June 26th, 2012 at 5:01 PM
The NBA 2K video game has been my favorite basketball simulation over the past few years. NBA 2K11 had Michael Jordan on the cover, and famously brought M-Jeff and his Chicago Bulls teammates to life in the "Jordan Challenges." NBA 2K12 followed that up with a "Legends Mode" that allowed you to...

Report: Chicago Bulls Among Top Suitors for Brandon Roy
June 26th, 2012 at 6:46 AM
***PHOTO1*** Before his knees failed him, free agent Brandon Roy was one hell of a player. But over the past few seasons, those knees betrayed him and he was pushed into retirement after the Portland Trail Blazers used the amnesty clause on him. Ever since then, he has been plotting...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Derrick Rose
June 21st, 2012 at 10:07 PM
After a dynamic 2010-11 season that saw Derrick Rose become the youngest NBA MVP ever at age 22, everybody wanted to see what he had in store for an encore. We heard stories about his summer workouts and the talk of a newly refined post game. I don't know about...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Rip Hamilton
June 20th, 2012 at 7:23 AM
After the disappointing defeat at the hands of the Miami Heat in the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals, pretty much everybody knew the Chicago Bulls would be looking for an upgrade at shooting guard. The trio of Keith Bogans, Ronnie Brewer and Kyle Korver did an admirable job in the regular season,...

NBA Draft 2012: Updated Mock Draft Projections for Chicago Bulls
June 18th, 2012 at 11:20 AM
The NBA Draft combine has come and gone, which means teams have a somewhat better idea of which direction they will go on draft night. This of course means a fresh set of mock drafts (here are the projections from a couple of weeks ago) from all the pundits out...

Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose Stars in New NBA 2K13 Promo
June 13th, 2012 at 11:11 AM
I'm not sure whether this will cheer up Chicago Bulls fans, or just make them even more depressed. Injured Bulls superstar Derrick Rose stars alongside Blake Griffin and Kobe Bryant in a new promo for NBA 2K13, which will be the newest installment in the critically acclaimed series. Rose is...

All Signs Point to Chicago Bulls Attempting to Avoid Luxury Tax in 2012-13
June 8th, 2012 at 7:10 AM
The luxury tax. It's something the Chicago Bulls have avoided like the plague for almost as long as I can remember. And since the Bulls are likely not title contenders next season due to the injury to Derrick Rose, all signs point to them doing all they can to get...

Report: Chicago Bulls Expected to Waive C.J. Watson
June 6th, 2012 at 11:02 PM
***PHOTO1*** I'm going to take this with a grain of salt, but here goes. Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Chicago Bulls will not bring back C.J. Watson next season. The Bulls have until July 10 before Watson's $3.2 million salary (there's been some confusion on this...
