Recap: 11-7 Chicago Bulls Drop Wild Double OT Contest to 14-5 Dallas Mavericks
December 2nd, 2014 at 11:18 PM
In a battle between two of the very best the NBA has to offer, the Chicago Bulls and Dallas Mavericks provided a wildly entertaining game Tuesday night at the United Center. The Mavs ended up with the 132-129 double overtime victory, in what was an early candidate for game of...

Preview: 11-6 Chicago Bulls Back Home to Take on 13-5 Dallas Mavericks
December 2nd, 2014 at 12:59 PM
It’s a basically common knowledge to this point that the NBA’s Western Conference is a much stronger, deeper conference than its counterpart out East. The Chicago Bulls, with the all-important caveat of being healthy, are among the select few Eastern Conference teams that could probably hang in the fierce West....

Adding Shawn Marion to the Chicago Bulls Isn’t Very Practical, but It Would Be Welcomed
July 25th, 2014 at 12:00 PM
Over the past couple of days on the tweeter network-y-thing Bulls fans have pondered up the idea of signing a former local (well, Waukegan and North Chicago are more like suburbs, but they certainly aren’t northern suburbs like Buffalo Grove and Lake Forest, either), Shawn Marion. The Matrix has had...

Chicago Bulls 101, Dallas Mavericks 78: Just When I Think I’m Out…
November 29th, 2012 at 11:45 AM
I'm getting fed up with this team. The Chicago Bulls, fresh off an epic 27-point collapse on Monday, decided to dispense with the collapse and do what they were doing for the first two and a half quarters against the Milwaukee Bucks: beat the crap out of their opponents. I'm getting fed...

Chicago Bulls (6-7) V. Dallas Mavericks (7-8) Preview: Going…What’s Another Way to Say Off-script?
November 28th, 2012 at 1:58 PM
Once more into the breach. When last we saw the Chicago Bulls, they were staggering off the court after successfully squandering a 27-point lead in the second half at home and we here at Bulls 101 were contemplating why exactly we were bothering to watch this team. Two days later, the Bulls...

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...

LeBron James Finally Gets His Ring as Miami Heat Trounce Oklahoma City Thunder to Win NBA Title
June 22nd, 2012 at 1:42 AM
I remember watching "The Decision" back in the summer of 2010, simultaneously cursing the ridiculousness of it and praying that LeBron James would choose the Chicago Bulls as his next destination. When LeBron uttered his famous "take my talents to South Beach" line, a feeling of both disappointment and rage...

Report: Free Agent Jason Kidd Won’t ‘Rule Out’ Chicago Bulls
June 18th, 2012 at 9:49 PM
***PHOTO1*** We all know the story by now. With Derrick Rose sidelined until who knows when and C.J. Watson's future with the team in doubt, the Chicago Bulls may be in the market for a point guard when free agency begins July 1. Big names like Steve Nash and Jason...

Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder Should Provide NBA Finals to Remember
June 11th, 2012 at 11:21 PM
Before the shortened 2011-12 season started, many thought the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder were on a collision course for the NBA Finals. And even though both teams finished second in their respective conferences, plenty of folks still believed that we were destined for a heavyweight bout between the...

Oklahoma City Thunder Advance to NBA Finals with 107-99 Game 6 Win Over San Antonio Spurs
June 7th, 2012 at 12:26 AM
***PHOTO1*** At some point during the 2010-11 NBA season, I felt compelled to hop on board the Oklahoma City Thunder bandwagon. Kevin Durant soon became my favorite non-Bull, while I also derived much enjoyment from watching Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Serge Ibaka develop as players. Things did not work out...

Chicago Bulls Week in Review: Fight to the Finish
April 23rd, 2012 at 7:27 AM
With the conclusion of this past week of NBA hoops, we have reached the final week of the season that almost never happened. It was just about four months ago that the Chicago Bulls started a 66-game regular season journey that has certainly tested their mettle, although I doubt many...

Chicago Bulls 93 – Dallas Mavericks 83: Game Grades
April 22nd, 2012 at 8:32 AM
To begin the final stretch of the condensed regular season, the Chicago Bulls played host to the Dallas Mavericks after coming off a loss to the Miami Heat. The Bulls started off this game very well. The offense was running exceptionally and the defense was stifling as the Bulls held...

Derrick Rose Returns as Chicago Bulls Defeat Dallas Mavericks 93-83
April 22nd, 2012 at 12:36 AM
In a somewhat surprising development, Derrick Rose returned to the Chicago Bulls' starting lineup on Saturday night when they took on the defending champion Dallas Mavericks. Many figured Rose would sit one more game with a foot injury, but to the joy of most Bulls fans, this would not be...

Chicago Bulls Number One Seed Watch: Magic Number Down to One
April 21st, 2012 at 10:40 PM
After the Chicago Bulls' rough loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night, there was legitimate concern that the one seed in the Eastern Conference would be wrestled from Chicago's grasp. The Bulls still had two tough matchups left on the schedule, while it would not have been out of...

Chicago Bulls Host Defending NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks; Derrick Rose a Game-Time Decision
April 21st, 2012 at 5:12 PM
Three games. Three games is all that's left of this crazy, compressed regular season that has had its fair share of ups (47-15 record) and downs (all those dastardly injuries). The Chicago Bulls are still in the drivers seat for the number one seed in the Eastern Conference, but barring...

Chicago Bulls Likely to Face Charlotte Bobcats Without Derrick Rose and Luol Deng
April 18th, 2012 at 1:25 PM
***PHOTO1*** I could present a bunch of stats showing just how terrible the Charlotte Bobcats are, but that would be a giant waste of time. So instead, here's one that does a perfect job showing how pathetic this team really is: The Bobcats are getting outscored by 13.3 points per...

Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose Travels with Team to Charlotte; Status up in the Air for Wednesday
April 17th, 2012 at 7:54 PM
***PHOTO1*** Chicago Bulls fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Derrick Rose's right foot injury - his FIFTH injury of the season - was deemed not serious after tests came back negative on Monday. Rose traveled with the team to Charlotte on Tuesday and is currently day-to-day with the injury. The...

Chicago Bulls Shooting Guard Candidate: Rip Hamilton
December 9th, 2011 at 6:27 PM
You know what they say: When one door closes, another one opens. The Bulls may have lost out on Caron Butler, as we covered yesterday, but today there's a new name on everyone's mind: Rip Hamilton. With reports surfacing that the Detroit Pistons have bought out the rest of Hamilton's contract,...

Chicago Bulls Announce 2011-12 Regular Season Schedule
December 6th, 2011 at 7:21 PM
The full 2011-12 NBA schedule has finally been released to an eager horde of basketball fans. As previously announced, the Chicago Bulls will open the 66-game season on the road on Christmas against the Los Angeles Lakers. The game is scheduled to tip off at 4 p.m. CT on ABC.  ***PHOTO1*** The...

Chicago Bulls Shooting Guard Candidate: Caron Butler
December 5th, 2011 at 10:47 AM
A cynic would say that there's a reason the Dallas Mavericks won the title last year even after losing forward Caron Butler to injury. And it's possible that they'd have a point. I mean, in general, teams don't lose their top perimeter scorers during the year and then go on...
