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...

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...

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...
