Houston Rockets 120, Chicago Bulls 97: Game Grades (Special Edition)
December 26th, 2012 at 12:37 AM
As I sit here trying to wrap my head around what happened in the Houston Rockets' shellacking of the Chicago Bulls, all that seems to run through my head is Dr. Seuss's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" Nothing seems more pertinent. Exactly a year ago, Bulls fans were screaming their...

Houston Rockets Beat Chicago Bulls Senseless on Christmas Day
December 25th, 2012 at 9:16 PM
Well, this makes two consecutive games in which I am writing the recap before the end of the game. After the Chicago Bulls came up with a pair of excellent wins over the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks, they immediately followed that with a pair of horrific losses to...

Chicago Bulls (15-11) V. Houston Rockets (14-12) Preview: Omer-ry Asik-mas
December 25th, 2012 at 12:01 AM
In the spirit of Christmas, I'll keep this short. Omer Asik is making his triumphant return to the United Center as a member of the Houston Rockets. Pretty much everything I wrote the last time the Chicago Bulls took on the Rockets still applies. However, the Rockets seem to have kicked...

Chicago Bulls (6-6) V. Milwaukee Bucks (6-5) Preview: the Buck Stops Here, Hopefully
November 26th, 2012 at 10:38 AM
Good news and bad news from the Chicago Bulls' annual Circus Roadtrip. The good news is nobody got hurt and they salvaged a 2-3 record. The bad news is they lost three in a row for the first time since Tom Thibdoeau took over the team and saw their roster...

Chicago Bulls (5-5) at Houston Rockets (4-7) Preview: Old Friends
November 21st, 2012 at 10:27 AM
Omer Asik wasn't the first domino to fall in the Chicago Bulls' depressing offseason, but he was the largest. Faced with potentially paying the luxury tax for the first time ever, the Bulls had a decision to make when Asik signed a 3 year, $25 million offer sheet with the Houston...

November 12th, 2012 at 2:28 PM
The Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets will play at the United Center on Christmas Day. And now, we all know what their uniforms will look like.  I'm not going to say that these uniforms — all of them, not just the Bulls — are the worst uniforms of all time, but...they're...

Nazr Mohammed Reportedly Joining Chicago Bulls; Omer Asik Out?
July 22nd, 2012 at 5:32 PM
So, good news, better news and bad news. The good news is that a Bulls free agent target is actually intending to sign with them. The better news is that the signee is not Darko Milicic, but rather Nazr Mohammed, a veteran center formerly a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The...

Chicago Bulls Offseason Roundup: the Offseason from Hell Continues
July 20th, 2012 at 10:53 PM
Hey, remember how the Bulls were going to get OJ Mayo to be their shooting guard? Yeah...about that... ***PHOTO1*** That was Monday evening, and things have really only gone downhill from there. Kirk Hinrich still hasn't signed with the Bulls and we still don't know why. But you know who has signed? Vladimir...

July 16th, 2012 at 6:29 PM
Hello all, sorry not to update the site at all this weekend. We've been going through some changes here at Bulls 101, but that's all been resolved and it's time to get back to work. It's been a "busy" weekend for the Bulls, or at least it seems like it should...

Omer Asik Offer Sheet: to Match or not to Match?
July 5th, 2012 at 8:36 PM
***PHOTO1*** It's been a few days since Chicago Bulls restricted free agent Omer Asik and the Houston Rockets came to terms on a three-year, $25.1 million deal, and I'm still not totally sure what the right call would be here. My initial reaction was "no way in hell do the Bulls...

Chicago Bulls Bullets: Free Agency Rumor Round Up
July 2nd, 2012 at 11:06 PM
So after 30+ hours of not having any power, I'm finally back in business. Considering this is currently one of the craziest times in the NBA, it was certainly not the most ideal time to lose power. Sure I was able to get brief updates on my phone, but that...

June 30th, 2012 at 10:13 PM
We're just a couple hours away from the beginning of the 2012 free agency free period, so I figured I'd get a quick post up looking at how things stand with the Chicago Bulls. Let's dive right in:  There's been a recent revelation by many of the beat writers that the...

Houston Rockets to Pursue Chicago Bulls’ Omer Asik?
June 29th, 2012 at 9:40 AM
Before the 2012 NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets did all they could to stockpile picks in order to try and move up high in the lottery. The idea, at least most presumed, was to offer the Orlando Magic a worthwhile package for disgruntled superstar Dwight Howard. However, the Rockets were...

Chicago Bulls Offseason Rumors: Luol Deng Trade Chatter Heating up, Boston Celtics Interested in Omer Asik
June 18th, 2012 at 12:25 PM
Ah, the NBA rumor mill. Out of all the major sports leagues, I'm pretty sure the NBA is untouched when it comes to speculative reports about possible trades/signings/whatever. And honestly, I love it. It's part of what makes writing about the NBA so fun. As long as you realize that...

April 9th, 2012 at 2:05 PM

Chicago Bulls in Unfamiliar Situation After Two Straight Losses
April 4th, 2012 at 12:48 AM
The Chicago Bulls' 99-93 loss to the Houston Rockets was a loss that gave the Bulls their first back-to-back regular season losses since February 2011. Making matters even worse was the fact that the Bulls held a comfortable lead throughout the middle portion of the game, only to give it...

Chicago Bulls (42-12) Vs. Houston Rockets (28-25) Preview: Uhh…Houston, We May Have a Problem
April 2nd, 2012 at 3:25 PM
As my talented, benevolent and all-around excellent editor Jay Patt has already detailed (I can neither confirm nor deny any rumor of his involvement in the previous description), Derrick Rose still isn't back. Nor does he seem to be particularly close. And with the playoffs less than four weeks and just...
