Life Without Carmelo: Why the Chicago Bulls Should Move On
July 11th, 2014 at 12:08 PM
It’s not to say that any basketball team with Carmelo Anthony is a bad team. Having Carmelo Anthony as a part of your basketball team instantly makes your basketball team better, by all accounts. His skill-set and scoring ability is that of Hall of Famers and legends of the game....

Chicago Bulls, Carmelo Anthony May Be Perfect Fit and Could Lead to Championship
June 26th, 2014 at 10:46 AM
Since the Tom Thibodeau era began in Chicago, there’s been one major ongoing area of concern, and no -- its not Derrick Rose’s knees. While Rose’s health remains 24/7 – 365 news; the Tom Thibodeau era, even with Derrick Rose has never amounted to much success on the offensive end....

Chicago Bulls 108, New York Knicks 101: Once More, with Feeling!
January 12th, 2013 at 1:26 PM
The Chicago Bulls beat the New York Knicks for the third consecutive time in a game that felt eerily similar to the second meeting, taking a huge lead and whittling it away in the final minutes. Similar to that second meeting with the Knicks (also in MSG), the Bulls jumped out...

Chicago Bulls (19-14) at New York Knicks (23-12) Preview: Two Games Does not a Trend Make
January 11th, 2013 at 1:53 PM
I wish, more than almost anything, that I understood this team. I wish I could figure out how a team can beat the Miami Heat on the road, blow out the Cleveland Cavaliers at home and then cough up a double-digit lead at home for the second time this year...

Chicago Bulls 110, New York Knicks 106: a Tale of Two Games
December 21st, 2012 at 10:10 PM
If you turned off the game after three quarters, you saw a fairly standard beatdown, with the Chicago Bulls dominating the New York Knicks on the road. If you stuck around for the fourth quarter, you saw things got really weird really fast. Things that happened in the fourth quarter: Carmelo Anthony received...

Chicago Bulls (14-10) at New York Knicks (19-6) Preview: Bright Lights, Big City
December 21st, 2012 at 4:13 PM
When last the Chicago Bulls saw the New York Knicks, they had just finished throttling a Carmelo Anthony-less Knicks team at home, winning 93-85 just two days after the Knicks had visited South Beach and beat down the Miami Heat by 20 points. Unfortunately, things are a little bit different this...

As the NBA reaches the quarter-season mark, and with the yearly Christmas extravaganza coming up, the Bulls 101 staff takes a look at the NBA award races: MVP, Coach of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player, Rookie of the Year and Sixth Man of the Year. MVP Avi:...

Chicago Bulls 93, New York Knicks 85: Everything You Know is Wrong
December 8th, 2012 at 11:13 PM
Up is down. Black is white. Marco Belinelli might be good at basketball. The Chicago Bulls beat the New York Knicks while outshooting them on threes. In their fourth game in five nights, after they had to push to beat the Detroit Pistons on the road one night before, facing the...

Chicago Bulls (10-8) Vs New York Knicks (14-4) Preview: the Importance of Being Jimmy
December 8th, 2012 at 3:41 PM
The Chicago Bulls look to continue their improved play as of late as they welcome the East-leading New York Knicks to the United Center tonight at 8 Eastern. To pick up on what is the recurring thread this season (the Bulls lack of consistent scoring), I'd like to give credit to...

Chicago Bulls #NBARank: Butler at 371, Teague at 356
August 22nd, 2012 at 4:59 PM
For the second consecutive year, ESPN is doing its offseason #NBARank exercise. For those unfamiliar, a very large number of ESPN-affiliated bloggers and writers rate 500 players from 1-10 (10 is highest, 1 is lowest) and then the scores are averaged, producing a ranking of every player in the NBA. That's...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Joakim Noah
June 11th, 2012 at 2:38 PM
Oh, Joakim Noah. From your draft day Carrot Top impression to dunking on Paul Pierce in the 2009 playoffs, to everything else you've done since your arrival in Chicago, you've become a fan favorite and something of a modern day Bill Laimbeer: the guy you love if he's on your team...

Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Player Review: Taj Gibson
June 5th, 2012 at 8:25 PM
I love Taj Gibson. I figured I'd just start with that, get it out there so you all know what you're getting into. Taj is probably my third favorite player on the Bulls, behind only Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. Having watched him since he came into the league for the...

What Does Future Hold for Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler?
May 23rd, 2012 at 3:12 PM
Chicago Bulls wing Jimmy Butler may have played only 363 total minutes in his rookie season (including playoffs), but that's not going to stop me from gazing into the crystal ball and taking an educated guess on how he will perform going forward. It's obviously hard to predict how much...

Chicago Bulls 2011-12 Player Review: Jimmy Butler
May 22nd, 2012 at 11:49 PM
When Jimmy Butler was selected by the Chicago Bulls with the 30th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, I really had no idea what to think. I had not seen much of him at Marquette, so I was pretty unfamiliar with his game. After reading more about him, it was...

Philadelphia 76ers Clinch Final Spot in East, San Antonio Spurs Earn Top Seed in West
April 24th, 2012 at 12:01 AM
The Chicago Bulls may be off for a couple of days, but there's still plenty of other riveting (and some not so riveting) NBA action going on as teams jockey for playoff positioning. The two outcomes from Monday night that were most relevant to the Bulls were the wins by...

Chicago Bulls (43-14) Out to Avenge Sunday’s Loss to New York Knicks (29-27); Derrick Rose a Game-Time Decision with Ankle Injury
April 10th, 2012 at 7:28 AM
We all know what happened when the Chicago Bulls faced the New York Knicks this past Sunday. Thanks to how that game finished, Derrick Rose and the Bulls will be out to avenge that heartbreaking loss. On Tuesday night (8:30 p.m. CT on ESPN), the Bulls will be at the...

Chicago Bulls Week in Review: Derrick Rose Returns
April 9th, 2012 at 2:05 PM
This past week featured both some good news and bad news for the Chicago Bulls. First, the obvious good news: Derrick Rose returned from a groin injury after missing 12 straight games. And while Rose showed some noticeable rust, he said that he felt fine afterward and that the groin...

Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose’s Return Spoiled; Team Takes 100-99 Overtime Loss to New York Knicks
April 8th, 2012 at 9:05 PM
The Chicago Bulls had this one in the bag. Or so we thought.   After erasing a 21-point first quarter deficit, the Bulls had quieted the Madison Square Garden faithful and held what seemed like a comfortable 10-point lead over the New York Knicks with just under four minutes to play....

Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose ‘Likely’ to Return as They Take on New York Knicks in Easter Sunday Matinee
April 8th, 2012 at 7:10 AM
The last time the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks played was the last time we saw Derrick Rose on the court. That of course was almost a month ago on March 12, and the Bulls have gone 8-4 in the 12 games since Rose suffered a groin injury in...

Chicago Bulls’ John Lucas III Proving Doubters Wrong
March 23rd, 2012 at 11:00 AM
***PHOTO1*** John Lucas III's Chicago Bulls career certainly did not get off to the best start.  Early last season, Lucas was signed before a game against the Denver Nuggets because of an injury to Derrick Rose. That night, Lucas was pressed into action at the end of the game and found...
